Description

Leith, Scotland--1531

Cailin MacDougal has lived a dangerous life being the adopted daughter of vampire Broderick "Rick" MacDougal, so she had no choice but to learn to fight in order to protect herself. However, such behavior is hardly desirable in a dutiful wife who's supposed to embroider and run a household. This aggressive side of her behavior should be easy enough to hide from her betrothed…shouldn't it?

After being away at fencing school for seven years, James Knightly has returned as a master swordsman, ready to captain his own ship and finally wed his childhood sweetheart, Cailin MacDougal. What he finds waiting for him is a dagger-toting hellion for a bride, an immortal father-in-law, and an enemy bent on extracting revenge by threatening the family James holds most dear—the MacDougals.

Broderick MacDougal is lured away from his family with the promise of–at last–learning a way to protect those he loves from his clan enemy, Angus Campbell. Broderick knows he's headed for a trap, but the bait is too tempting to resist…and he unravels the beginning of a prophecy that will lead to redemption for all vampires. The cost of such redemption, though, may be the very soul of the woman he would die for…his wife, Davina.

Reader Advisory: This story contains some explicit love scenes, described using graphic and direct language. This story also contains explicit, nail-biting scenes of violence and sword fights.

Customer Reviews

Not Your Everyday Vampire Story

I found myself frustrated with this book. The relationship between Caitlin and James was stilted. I understand these are different times, and things were regarded differently but there were a few elements between the two that just didn't set well with me. Also, the source of their misunderstanding seemed flimsy and too easily, it could have been resolved early on. Perhaps another path should have been taken, but then again, these are different times, and I'm approaching this with a more evolved view and upbringing. I know this may seem like circles I'm writing, but the few small points may become clearer once you read this installment to the series. I was saddened by Broderick's lack of progression but it's understandable since the focus was more about Caitlin and James.
This portion of the series seems to be a bridge toward what may come to pass with the rest of the series. I was curious to know what may happen; however, I felt disengaged with this book. I'm looking forward to the next step, where it leads, and if it may pick up my waning interest.
I had received this book as an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review.
Happy reading!
