Marcas Matheson was a desperate man on a mission. He had to save his sister and daughter. A curse had attacked their clan, and it was up to him to bring the best healers Marcas knew of to help them. Stealing them away in the middle of the night was a significant error, considering the clans he was taking them from.
Brigid Ramsay would like to find a man to love, but with Logan Ramsay as her father…well, good luck with that. Every man who knew her father feared him and wouldn’t stand up to him. So, when Brigid and her cousin Jennet were taken away in the middle of the night, it became an adventure…once she stopped fearing the handsome man who had taken them.
So excited for the next book in this new series. I loved the characters and storyline and seeing “old friends” once again, such as Logan and Gwyneth.
Ethan Matheson, brother to Marcas, chieftain of their clan, and married to Brigid Ramsay, has issues. He doesn’t like to be touched, says what he thinks, and pretty much sees things black and white. However, he is fond of Jennet, and when his brother Shaw says to pursue her…he does. Because he pretty much does what his brothers tell him to.
Jennet Ramsay never thought she’d feel anything for anyone. She was going to be content as the healer she is. That is until Brigid married. Losing her best friend is hard, and yet, how could she deny Brigid the happiness she found?
When Jennet returns to Ramsay land to try and help her mother heal her father, Quade, the former chieftain of the clan, something happens that has Jennet running away…alone. And straight into trouble. Another exciting story in this series. As with all of Keira’s books, I can’t wait for the next one.
Padraig Grant is still at Matheson keep. He came to help find his kidnapped cousins…and after that turned out to be okay, he stayed to assist in the fight against the clans around them. And the sister of the chieftain wasn’t too hard to be around either.
Gisela Matheson had once thought Donald MacKinnie was handsome and didn’t fight against being betrothed to him before her father’s death. But, she changed since the curse, but Donald also changed. He was mean-spirited and cruel. There was no way she’d marry him. And no way Donald would just let her go.
Another page-turning story. I love that the author adds so many characters from past books in each story.
Chrissa Grant is now ten and nine, and she's been noticing how her feelings are changing for her childhood friend, Drostan. But she has more important things to think about. A big war is coming between the Scots and English...and she'll be there to help.
Drostan Chisholm worked hard every day in the lists. He was determined to be the best swordsman he could be. He'd have to keep his mind on practicing more instead of watching Chrissa in the archery field with leggings hugging her body.
Chrissa is the daughter of Kyla and Finlay, their only daughter. Drostan is a Grant warrior. Alexander Grant had wanted his children and their children, etcetera, to choose their own spouses. So where some may not think a warrior could have any hope of one day marrying one of the royals...there was hope. Wonderful story and closing to the Grant clan. A definite tissue alert.
Claray Grant is Sela's oldest daughter. Her evil father had been part of the Channel of Dubh and used Claray to get Sela to obey him. At three, she'd been in a small room with her mother while a hoard of spiders were let loose with them. The memory was faded, but her fear was still very real to her. She'd never forget Maddie Grant coming to save her.
Thorn Taylor, rescued by Connor from the Channel of Dubh as a young boy, had become part of Loki's clan. He'd long cared for Claray, but never felt worthy of a laird's daughter. This Yule season was about to change things. That is, until an accident that Thorn felt responsible for sent him running.
All in all, things worked out just as they needed to. As always, I loved the story. It had me smiling sometimes and crying at others. Keira Montclair has a beautiful way with words.

But, Elizabeth isn’t ready to be married for reasons that may not make sense to those around her. So, she has Gil promise to keep it between them.
Gil, an orphan who was taken into Loki’s clan, doesn’t see how he can measure up and be accepted by Alexander Grant to marry his daughter. He feels he has to do something to prove he’s worthy.
