"Ms. Howell again delivers a believable highlander romance"

Laird James Drummond is outlawed - accused of murdering his wife. His lands and daughter taken over by her kinsman, Donnell MacKay who James believes is the true murderer. After 3 years of running for his life, he disguises himself as a woodcarver and returns to Duncraig to find proof of his innocence.

Annora MacKay is brought to Dunncraig Keep by her cousin to care for Meggie, a child Donnell claims is his own. When she discovers James is Meggie's true father and that he was falsely accused, she aids him. Through danger and intrigue, they uncover family secrets and how truly evil Donnell MacKay is.

Although not her best writing, Ms. Howell again delivers a believable highlander romance. James is a wounded hero and despairs as he finds his view of his marriage was not realistic. As a sop to current publishing demand for paranormal, the heroine can sense feelings which helps her connect with the hero, but is barely a plot point. Including visits from characters met in previous novels adds an atmosphere of being part of the clan -- or the wish to read their story although this book stands alone.
