Lady Jane is in hiding after killing her husband. After years of being beaten by him, she finally had enough. Unfortunately others didn't see it as self defense. She had resigned herself to a solitary life. That is until a highlander lands himself on her doorstep almost dead.
Laird Alexander, blaming himself for his wife's accidental death, set out on one of his boats to spend time reflecting on his life. Getting caught in a storm, he is lucky to reach land. Too bad it was English land where he is beaten , left for dead, and all his belongings taken.
Too broken souls come together, but can they heal each other to find that everlasting love?
I will say that I didn't really care for Alexander in Beauty and the Barbarian, but Jarecki redeemed him in my eyes. This is a story of two battered and bruised souls finding their other half and starting the healing process.
Jarecki does a great job of showing Jane going through the healing process and coming out a stronger person. I also think that having Alexander forced to do manual labor sort of humbled him a bit.
I really hope that Jarecki is not done with this series as I have really enjoyed it!
