Description

Connor, chieftain of the MacDonalds of Sleat, holds the fate of his people in his hands. Rival clans are plotting to take over his lands, and duty determines whom he will fight, trust . . . even marry. Seeking guidance, Connor turns to Ilysa, a young lass with the gift of foresight, who reveals an approaching danger-and a passion that burns only for him. But the warrior must make a powerful marriage alliance, and Ilysa's bloodline is far too humble. With her powers to heal and see evil where others cannot, beautiful Ilysa dresses plainly, speaks softly, and loves her chieftain from afar. Yet when Connor finally stokes the embers of desire that have so long burned within her, Ilysa feels bliss unlike any she's ever known. Now as he is forced to place duty before happiness, Ilysa senses Connor is in grave peril. Can she find a way to prove she is the woman he needs by his side? (95000 words)

        December 10, 2012
        Mallory’s fun and engaging fourth Return of the Highlanders 1516 romance (after The Warrior) pairs competent healer Ilysa with chieftain Connor MacDonald. For as long as she can remember, Ilysa, a young widow, has yearned for Connor underneath her shapeless garb and covered hair. Connor, however, hopes that marrying a high-ranking woman from another clan will improve his clan’s chances for survival, and makes that his priority, especially in wake of the devastation caused by his scheming uncle. As one born with the Sight, Ilysa believes it is her duty to keep Connor safe, especially as he doesn’t realize the danger he’s in. When Ilysa risks everything for Connor’s safety and unveils her beauty, he begins to see who she really is. Readers will appreciate the well-developed romance, historic detail, and red-hot passion as they root for two strong protagonists who bravely face danger at every turn.
