If you love Highland heroes, you will love Lachlan. He's sexy and smart, and totally in control of making sure that he takes care of all his charges.
Along the way, a plot is discovered against her and her daughter which could cause the two countries to go to war. But Lachlan is determined to protect both of them and keep them for himself. And as he falls in love with Francie, he is determined to make her love him right back!
This was a great story with plenty of action and relationship-building along the way. Lots of interesting things happen along Francie's self-discovery of herself and what love can be. Secrets are exposed but she finally gets her man.
While it might seem the story was a little long, it was very enjoyable. This book is a second in a trilogy but can easily be read as a stand-alone. I loved it enough that I'll be going back to read the first and then read the last. Enjoy!!
