Framed for a crime he did not commit, Duncan Campbell, the illegitimate son of a chieftain, has returned to the Highlands, determined to clear his name after ten years in exile. He is drawn to the unforgettable sensual beauty of Jeannie Gordon, the headstrong girl who once pledged him her love, gave him her innocence, and then betrayed him. Now, in the glow of the moonlight, she defiantly shows Duncan the bad end of a pistol.

Jeannie is stunned to discover that the broad-chested brigand she just shot is the rogue who broke her heart years ago. No longer a starry-eyed girl but a woman with dangerous secrets, Jeannie cannot forgive Duncan’s shattering mistrust of her—nor can she sign his death warrant by turning him in. Soon passion flares hotter and bolder than before, sealing a fate the one-time lovers can no longer deny. Caught up in a deadly game of murder and intrigue, Jeannie is willing to risk everything for a man and a love she vows never to lose again.

    " While for me at least this book get off to a slow start it picks up in the middle and redeems itself in the end. I really enjoyed this trilogy and look forward to starting on her next trilogy soon. "

    " Three book trilogy was a great read! "

    " I enjoyed this book more than most McCarty novels. Not sure why. Maybe it was because it's been a while since I read a book by her, or maybe it's because the character's motivations made some sense in this one. In every McCarty romance, the hero and heroine have a misunderstanding caused by lack of communication that leads to a separation. In most of them, the reasons for their lack of communication are ridiculous, but in this one it made sense. Shortly after Duncan & Jeannie meet and fall in love, he goes to battle and his side is betrayed, and he is framed for it. He flees Scotland in disgrace as a traitor. He suspects Jeannie framed him, since he secretly spent the night with her before the great betrayal. So in this case, they have good reasons for not trusting each other! Yay! She thinks he may have betrayed her side (but not really - but she can't talk to him because he is gone), and he thinks she betrayed him in favor of her father. Of course, all is resolved in the end and there is a ridiculously happy ending. "

    " Monica McCarty writes wonderful early Scottish romance adventures. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Highland-dreamer | 1/18/2014

    " Of the series, I liked this plot-line the best, but I didn't really like Jeannie's character at all. At least she and Duncan wised up by the end, but it was a tortuous journey. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anne | 1/16/2014

    " I usually love this author's books, but this one, although a good read, had way too much pre-matital sex for my taste "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel Donnelly | 12/22/2013

    " One of her best yet! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeannie | 11/12/2013

    " Ain't gonna lie, it's a little strange reading a book when the chick shares the same name as yourself. Though it's not as creepy as reading a sex scene that contains your daughter's name. Boy, that was tough! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sherri *Wannabe Rock Chick* | 7/24/2013

    " This 3rd entry in the Campbell Trilogy is about 100 pages too long. While I enjoyed the plot and the characters, the story dragged on for way too long, threw in a secret baby plot device and wrapped up a little too neatly for me to say I loved it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michele | 6/7/2013

    " best of the 3, loved the characters and got teary eyed at least twice over their story...Duncan (sigh!) "

    " This was HOT! I enjoyed this one better than the second one- probably much as I did the first book in this series... "

    " Reading the trilogy out of order but this was the first one I found in the series. Maybe it is just me, but I am not getting into this book. I have decided to not finish this book after getting stuck on chapter 2. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Crystal | 11/8/2012

    " 5 stars. This series just keeps getting better and better. I really enjoyed this book and would highly recommend this series and this book. "

    " I enjoyed the way things wrapped up. Characters were strong, and of course, I love little Ella.... can only imagine the trouble she will get into as she comes of age! "
