The story begins rather surprisingly: Elspeth is about to marry Lachlan Drummond, a man she doesn't knows, she has never see or meet for the needs of strategic and financial parties involved. However, when imposing these wishes, she is suddenly taken hostage by ''Mad'' Rob seeking retribution for the kidnapping and death of his wife. From this point the story becomes, still continues to be interesting and exciting! I was impressed by the book's contents: the expressions, the myths and legends from Scotland, the rituals practiced by the people at this time, we believe it! I must admit, it wasn't very difficult to convince me: A woman who is caught in an unwanted marriage, a husband to whom you want death, a sexy, intelligent, mysterious and troubled kidnapper, adding the Scotland background, the time and just enough supernatural behaviour to make the perfect recipe for a success story! As soon as Lady Elspeth is kidnapped, the action begins the intrigue about what really happened with Rob's wife, encounter of new characters and sequence of events takes place naturally. The authors have done their research on myths and legends of this specific time. The writing style is fluid and impeccable. Whenever I put the book aside, images of this story came to me naturally and my mind was fulfilled with naughty thoughts! I thought about it constantly! Apparently, it's a good sign when a book or more precisely the story is stuck into your heads for days. It was good, original and well built! The characters are very interesting: Elspeth is not the spoiled kind of girl who is just good at whining. Her head is on her shoulders, heart in the hand and I like reading about a heroine who seems to know what is good for her, even though towards the end of the novel she seems to take funny decisions... Rob is the perfect gentleman, attractive, charming ... but he's troubled by the death of his wife and I love the tortured kind of male characters. Lachlan is the ''bad boy'' character in the book. He seems to want to marry Elspeth only for the benefits it will bring to him. Of course, at that time, they were often arranged marriages and it was the norm! Lachlan plays his role to perfection as a man greedy for power and wealth, is doing very little for the happiness and security of his future wife! I love to hate him!show more
