In going to the aid of a burning village, Brandon Sinclair comes upon a young woman whom he feels bound to protect, despite the objections of others in the Bruce's service who accompany him, who feel she is likely a spy or part of the trap that was laid for them. Mariana's connection with the King of England puts her in a difficult position, not knowing who to trust and with how much. Brandon and Mariana had great chemistry from the start, and though I understand why it had to be so, I wished there had been fewer secrets between them along the way. Mariana showed such strength in the face of harsh judgements and the bleakness of the life that had been thrust upon her, and I couldn't help but like her. I look forward to reading the next book in this series, The Highlander's Sin, about the mysterious MacKay priest!
