This is the third book of the Highland Warriors trilogy. If you haven't read the first two books of the series, I recommend that you do. It would let you have a better understanding of the characters and events involved in this book. I personally feel you'd enjoy this book more by reading the two previous books in the series.
This books starts off with Alsdair having been away from the Glen of Many Legends for a year with no word. He thought he could quell his feelings for Marjory, but once he sees her again he realizes he was wrong. He and her brother are sworn enemies. To attempt a relationship with her could end very badly for all involved. It could invoke a war and bring about the King's wrath.
Marjory isn't positive of Alsdair's feelings for her. Anyone who see the two within eyesight of one another, however, would have no doubts about who either of them favors. That includes Majory's brother who is determined to prevent a union between the two from ever happening. With encouragement from her sister-in-law, Marjory attempts to seduce Alsdair and win her man. Before she gets very far, however, she has a dream that is so life like that when she awakens she can still smell the smoke. She worries it might be a warning about her future. For Majory has in her possession an amber necklace laced with gemstones that, according to legend, could aid the owner aid in times of trouble. Gifted to her by her sister-in-law, the necklace was once part of a collection which had been handed down through the generations by the MacDonald clan. It's said the amber gemstones had been a gift from Manannan Mac Lir, the mighty god of sea and wind. If the dream proves true, then her life may be in jeopardy. Before the dream could play out in it's entirety, she awoke. Could it be a sign her fate was not set in stone?
Overall, I gave this one a 4 out of 5 roses. I absolutely adore all the legends and lore Ms. Welfonder created for this series. I enjoyed how Alsdair attempts to try to do the right thing and leave Marjory alone, but she won't let him. I giggled at the advice Isobel was giving Marjory on how to go about seducing Alsdair. This was a very fun read. On the Lisarenee Romance Rating Scale, this one gets a STEAM rating--too hot for a fan, but you still have a handle on things. You should use extreme caution when reading a book with this rating in public. People may inquire as to why you looked flustered and flushed.
