Summary

Stealing brides is a tradition....

In the Highlands, strength is the currency of choice and if you can't protect what is yours, be prepared to pay a ransom.

Annis is a prize. Born of a royal blood line, the fact that she's illegitimate isn't really important. With her mother gone, her kin barter her and send her off to Scotland where her husband's family is eager to see her produce heirs to their line with impeccable lineage.

Rolfe Munro is sick unto death of the topic of marriage. His marriage is one everyone seems to have an opinion of. So, when his father offers him the chance to escape the Munro stronghold for a bit, Rolfe happily takes the chore!

He's the son of the laird, and he'll have to settle down or risk leaving the clan in a fight when he dies. Still, he's not ready to steal a bride. Even when his fool cousin takes one and needs rescuing. Rolfe isn't going to get involved beyond making sure his cousin survives. That's his plan. At least until he lays eyes on Annis.

Annis is different. Her allure is something he can't put into words, or ignore it would seem.

By the time he escorts them to his cousin's stronghold, all Rolfe is thinking about is how to steal Annis away.

Loved it

Loved every second of it. everyone I had to stop I couldn't wait to get back to it each time. This is the 3rd book of the series which has just come out. I really hope there will be more. Maybe Cormack's story or Tyron Campbell's story or even Jasper's.
Tim Campbell was brilliant as always.

Timothy Campbell and a wonderful story!

I love the narration of Timothy Campbell, and he delivered wonderfully with Ms. Wine's story. It made for a wonderful day by the fire with cups of fragrant ginger tea. She brought Scotland to life and Timothy gave it a voice. I recommend this for a wonderful excursion into the Highlands during the time of Elizabeth I and her elder sisters' son, James.
