Ewan McCabe, the eldest, is a warrior determined to vanquish his enemy. Now, with the time ripe for battle, his men are ready and Ewan is poised to take back what is his—until a blue-eyed, raven-haired temptress is thrust upon him. Mairin may be the salvation of Ewan’s clan, but for a man who dreams only of revenge, matters of the heart are strange territory to conquer.

The illegitimate daughter of the king, Mairin possesses prized property that has made her a pawn—and wary of love. Her worst fears are realized when she is rescued from peril only to be forced into marriage by her charismatic and commanding savior, Ewan McCabe. But her attraction to her ruggedly powerful new husband makes her crave his surprisingly tender touch; her body comes alive under his sensual mastery. And as war draws near, Mairin’s strength, spirit, and passion challenge Ewan to conquer his demons—and embrace a love that means more than revenge and land.
Mairin is hiding out with nuns because if anyone finds out who she truly is they’ll use her to gain control of the dowry. The read starts out rather interesting enough with Mairin being kidnapped. Mairin is no meek, mild lady, she puts up a fight throughout the novel.

She manages to get away from her kidnappers and snag her a good and honorable man for her husband. Ewan and his two brothers were great men. I truly enjoyed watching them interact with each other and with Mairin.

I found myself getting a bit bored with some of the storyline. I skipped numerous pages that just seemed to drag on. The only thing that made me finish this one was the fact that I wanted to know who the culprit behind Mairin’s misfortunate events was.
