#1 New York Times bestselling author Stephanie Laurens returns to Scotland, where destiny and passion intertwine...
Thomas Carrick is determined to make his own life in the bustling port city of Glasgow, far from the demands of the Carrick clan, eventually with an appropriate wife on his arm. But disturbing events on his family's estate force Thomas to return to the Scottish countryside—where he is forced to ask for help from the last woman he wants to face. Thomas has never forgotten Lucilla Cynster and the connection that seethes between them, but to marry Lucilla would mean embracing a life he's adamant is not for him.
Strong-willed and passionate, Lucilla knows Thomas is hers—her fated lover, husband, protector, mate. He is the only man for her, just as she is his one true love. How can he ignore a bond stronger than reason and choose a different path? She's determined to fight for their future, and while she cannot command him, she has enticements of her own to wield when it comes to tempting Thomas Carrick.
I really enjoyed this book, but then again I knew I would I’ve read all of the Cynster falling in love with them with the first book Devil’s Bride. I loved that they continued with the younger siblings of the Bar Cynster and now the next generation. I always had a soft spot for Richard Cynster and of course Catriona so I was happy to see this book was about their daughter Lucilla. How the two of them fight fait, or well how Thomas does makes for interesting interactions between him and Lucilla. As with the other books there is a mystery and it was a nice journey watching the two of them solve the problems that are going on at Thomas’ uncles place. If you’ve read and enjoyed any of the other Cynster books that you will enjoy this one too. I look forward to Lucillas’ brother Marcus’ story when that one comes out next.
