This is the 3rd book in the Highlander series but can definitely be read as a standalone. In true Sabrina York’s fashion, this story has plenty of suspense, drama, and romance to keep any historical romance lover happy.
Lachlan thinks he’s cursed and he will not live to see his next birthday. At this point in his life his only goals are to either break the so-called curse or quiet the ghosts that haunt his castle by making repairs to it and for that he needs lots of funds.
Enter Lana and family. What Lachlan asks of them would not only leave many of their tenants destitute but will also make Lachlan’s Lords rise up against him. Lana makes it her mission to make him see the error of his ways, and that includes denying his Highlander nature.
Lana, although independent and strong-minded, seemed to be a very sweet girl and was able to peel Lachlan’s layers effortlessly making his transition from a stiff English duke to a rugged Highlander seamless. I appreciated very much that their initial connection went beyond the physical attraction and their belief of the supernatural. Their special connection is what allowed them to become friends before they decided to become something more.
Other characters from the previous books made an appearance here so it was kind of a big reunion. The sisters are all together with their respective partners but I have to say that although I love a determined, tenacious heroine, the other two sometimes bordered on heedless and reckless and I didn’t feel much love for them here.
The suspense and gothic elements created a good mix but the story also included plenty of light and laugh out loud moments that balanced everything out. All in all an enjoyable read and I’d recommend it to lovers of highlanders, strong heroines, and romance stories with a smidgen of gothic elements.
