"Sassy, attractive Fia MacLean desires not anything greater than to go away Scotland for London and current her performs to Queen Elizabeth. besides the fact that, the very evening she makes an attempt to run clear of Duart fortress and her overprotective cousin, Laird Duncan MacLean, she knocks Thomas Wentworth, an English earl on a undercover agent venture, correct off a window ledge, and the 2 commence a trip towards love. even though a few components may be complicated for brand spanking new readers, someone can relish the espionage subplot and the pleasant banter among spitfire Fia and quick-tongued Thomas. colourful secondary characters, specifically Thomas's bombastic ally, upload humor and grace. An open finishing may well strike a few readers as susceptible, yet others might be moved to find Hawkins's MacLean Curse and Hurst Amulet sequence, to which it is a prequel.
