Rating: 4 Cups
Connor is clan chief of the MacDonalds of Sleat. His clan’s welfare and future depend upon his every decision, especially when it comes to choosing his future bride. A chieftain cannot marry where his heart leads him, not even when his choice is a fierce lass whose loyalty to the clan and her chieftain is unparalleled.
Ilysa has spent her life loving Connor MacDonald from afar. She has always been the type to work in the background, never gaining recognition. But the time for keeping silent is over. Ilysa is now determined to use her second sight to make certain Connor is safe and happy, even if her own heart breaks in the process.
Connor has never taken any particular notice of Ilysa before now. Yet, she has changed before his very eyes. Beautiful, alluring, steadfast and brave, the lass captures the chieftain’s heart. In the end, it will take both of them and their loyal hearts to safeguard their people.
Ms. Mallory does a beautiful job of bringing the Isle of Skye to life in her vivid descriptions of Clan MacDonald’s lands and lives. The fourth in this series, this book can be read as a standalone, though readers may enjoy picking up the previous three to get acquainted with the wonderful cast. Though the story has a predictable rhythm, it is well written and worth picking up for fans of Highland historical romances.
