Lady Alyson McGillivray travelled with her husband on a sea voyage. She was hoping she could get to know her husband better. However, on the ship, she makes a shocking discovery. The future king of Scotland, James, is traveling with them. It was nearly impossible to spend any alone time with her husband on board the ship as her husband was busy running errands and command of some other guy friend he has. When the ship was overrun with pirates, some people died and the future king was kidnapped. Lady Alyson believed her husband died that night. She would have died too were it not for a little boy named Will and Jake.
The Wolf, as he is famously known, has been commissioned by the king to follow his son on his journey. While he wasn't fortunate enough to prevent the kidnapping, he was able to save Alyson on that fateful night. Her ship was broken and it was about to sink when she was rescued by The Wolf. They feel mutual desire and attraction. In fact, more attraction and desire than she feel with anyone else before.
I like the progression of the story. I get lost in it and nothing to jar me out of my revelry. I like the surprise. I like the heroine's spirit and character. I like Jake, too. He's funny, and seem unflappable. I like him from Highland Hero. Spoiler alert down below...
The only sad part of the story for me is they never found James, the future king. Historical fact said that he was an English captive for more than 18 years. I would have like to hear about him. If this book were a movie, every scene he appeared, he'd have stolen it. I like a good historical romance. This is one. I learn something new and got entertained in return.
Have you taken a close look at the cover? I know I have. I only flipped and gaze at it every other chapter. I love that cover. It's very attractive. It's like watching Thor (from the movie Avengers) walking around half-clothed, or watching Captain America playing a naked neighbor in some other movie. It's thrilling! Come on, take a look at it again? I love that face....and here I am wondering....where is the body that goes with that face?!
My book is an ARC. Thank you to Ms. Reese for my copy.
