In 1508 on the Isle of Skye, Duncan MacDonald and his chieftain’s teenage daughter Moira fall in love.  However, when her raging father and her equally angry brother the heir catch them, they exile to France Duncan and his cousins Alex (see The Sinner) and Ian (see The Guardian) who allegedly abetted him with his disloyal violation.  Moira, while carrying Duncan’s child, is married to abusive Sean.

 

In 1516, Duncan finally comes home.  His chieftain Ragnall assigns Duncan to breach Sean’s castle in search of weaknesses.  Instead he arrives as Moira and her son Ragnall attempt a desperate escape.  Duncan helps the pair to freedom, but his beloved distrusts men as her lover, her father and her brother abandoned her and her offspring to a brutal beast. 

 

The third Return of the Highlanders historical romance is am entertaining second chance at love tale.  The hero is somewhat stereotypical of the sub-genre, but the lead female and their child bring freshness as abuse victims.  Fans will appreciate this engaging sixteenth century Scottish romance as love heals the mind and soul.
