Gyllis Campbell has not hidden the fact that she wants Sir Sean MacDougall as a husband. At the Beltane festival, she thinks she has finally gotten her wish until Sean doesn't show up for their appointed meeting. She is still dealing with a broken heart, when an illness strikes her down and she is sent to the Priory to heal.
Unbeknownst to Gyllis, Sean has been called home because of his father's death. Troubled by raids on his land and a traitor amongst his clan, Sean can't let Gyllis know that he is still interested in her. That is until a chance meeting at the Priory brings them back together again.
Can Sean fight his enemy and win the hand of his lady love?
When I read Jarecki's first series, Highland Force, I fell in love with her stories and her writing. Unfortunately, with her new series it almost seems like someone else is writing them. I love the storylines, but the writing quality itself seems to have gone down hill.
Jarecki's next book in the series comes out in July. I'll give her another try then...
