Looking to strip the Scots of any advantages, real or imagined, Edward Longshanks sends two of his best spies into the highlands to retrieve a mythical targe that he's heard rumors of and seeks to have for his own, but once Nicholas meets Rowan he begins to question where his loyalties lie. Great story about a man who lost his way, but finally came back home only to realize what he had been missing. I loved Nicholas's immediate connection to Rowan and her paranormal gifts (psychokinesis among other things), and I enjoyed watching them trying to muddle through between them how to control and best use her powers. They had such a great open and honest relationship, despite his initial reason for being there, and I thought there was something comforting about that. I look forward to reading further books in this series!
