Lady Annys MacQueen's home was under attack. She knew of only one person that she could call upon to help her, Sir Harcourt Murray. 5 years ago, Harcourt had agreed to father a child for Annys' husband to repay the debt of saving his life. Having gotten close to Harcourt during this time, Annys was heartbroken when he leaves without saying goodbye.
Annys has never been far from his mind, so when she calls for his help Harcourt rushes to her aid. It's hard to ignore the passion to simmers just under the surface whenever they are near one another. They soon give into it just as their enemy strikes.
Both have obligations to their home and people. Can they find a way to make their love everlasting?
I love Howell's Murray series and this one is no exception. With this being the 20th book in the series, you would think that Howell would run out of good stories to tell but she clearly hasn't.
I loved Harcourt and Annys. I hated that they had to hide their feelings for each other for the sake of her clan and her child. When they finally gave into their passions, I yelled a little cheer. Their son, Benet, was adorable and added much to the story. As did their pets, Roban and Roberta.
I can't wait to see what Howell has in store for the Murrays next, but I know it will be awesome!
