Keeley McDonald is an outcast from the McDonald clan. Wrongly accused, she has been disowned by those who should have protected her. She is a beautiful and kindhearted young woman who barely makes a living as a healer. She is also brave and willing to stand up for herself to anyone.
Alaric McCabe is the second of the three McCabe brothers. He is promised to marry the daughter of the McDonald laird and to become laird himself, in time. He is handsome with a good sense of humor, as well as being a strong and fierce warrior.
Alaric is on his way to propose marriage to the daughter of the McDonald laird when he and his men are ambushed. He is left for dead and his horse brings him to the cottage of Keeley, who is coincidentally a healer. Keeley saves his life and is kidnapped by the other two McCabe brothers to care for both him and the laird’s wife, Mairin. The two have strong feelings for each other, but Alaric is promised to another, and Keeley is an outcast with no family.
This second installment of the McCabe brothers’ story is full of surprises and interesting plot twists. The third brother Caelen is really starting to interest me more and more, and the author is making him a more sympathetic character. Keeley and Alaric are destined for each other from the beginning of the story, but getting to a happy ending is neither easy nor certain. I also enjoyed reading of the improvement of the McCabe clan’s fortunes and status. I am sure the final book will be as phenomenal as the first two.
