About the book

Athena Trappes thinks she’s in love…until she discovers the scoundrel only wanted her as his bit on the side. Enraged, she does what any spirited Englishwoman would do: set fire to his belongings, incur his dangerous wrath, and flee—immediately. With nowhere else to turn, she seeks freedom in the wilds of Scotland.

Highland Laird Symon Grant lost his wife years ago, and it’s his duty to find another. Athena is not exactly what the clan has in mind for him, but Symon’s heart burns with unexpected passion for the woman who would risk everything to be free.

My Thoughts

I didn’t realize this was book 5 in a series but I didn’t feel like I had any trouble settling into the story. Mary Wine is a new to me author but after finishing this book I definitely want to read more of her works.

I loved Symon’s character and I was rooting for him all the way. His cousin and the other clan members all made me smile and fall in love with them. Athena was a bit harder to like as I felt like though she was strong and independent she sometimes took it too far and didn’t make the smartest choices. She seemed to find it more important to make go her own way just to show she could even when logically it didn’t make sense. Still it was great watching the interaction between her and Symon and watching their relationship develop.

Despite my misgivings about Athena I couldn’t put this book down and cannot wait for Brenda’s story!
