About this ebook

The Douglas sisters, beauties all, are valuable pawns in their family's bitter struggle to control the Scottish Crown. But when powerful enemies threaten, each Douglas lass will find she must face them alone.

Haunted by his father's violent death, David Hume, the new laird of Wedderburn, sets out to make his name so feared that no one will dare harm his family again. The treacherous ally who played on his father's weakness is dead and beyond David's vengeance, but his castle and young widow are ripe for the taking. The moment David lays eyes on the dark-haired beauty defending her wee daughters, however, he knows this frail-looking lass is the one person who could bring him to his knees.

Wed at thirteen to a man who tried daily to break her spirit, Lady Alison Douglas is looking forward to a long widowhood. But when the fearsome warrior known as the Beast of Wedderburn storms her gates, she finds herself, once again, forced to wed a stranger. Alison is only a pawn to serve his vengeance, so why does this dark warrior arouse such fiery passion and an unwelcome longing in her heart?

With death and danger looming, these two wounded souls must learn to trust each other...for only love can save them.

Allison is such a spineless character. She demands respect but her lack of awareness of politics and her own clan sees her undermining David at every turn and placing herself in danger. She's her own worst enemy. To be fair to her, she was a child when she was wed and the way she was treated does not enable her to grow. As a result she's still essentially a child. I haven't finished yet but I'm hoping there's something redeeming about her whether she suddenly comes up with a strategic plan to help David or actually get the servants on side. And she did! Thank goodness. I was impressed on reading the note how much research has gone into the storyline.

This book was action pack & fast paced and very emotional. When we think of what we've through, we find that love is indiscriminate and comes in many ways & forms, it appears in ones life when you least expect it, to heal the hurts & help us strive to live and find the happiness thats locked inside of us.

A very good historic romance. It captured my attention from the beginning. There were a few lapses where the storyline was lost & never explained. This caused the story to drag in a couple of places. But for the most part, the book had interesting & believable characters that I cared about. The Love Story was romantic & dramatic.
