Seven years ago duty called to Connor Grant, and he left his home and the love of his life, Mairi MacGregor, behind. He vowed he'd come back to her. When she refused his requests that she come and live with him, he thought she had picked her home over him.

Seven years ago Mairi MacGregor lost the love of her life, Connor, to his sense of duty. She begged him not to go. He begged her to come with. She wasn't ready to leave her home. When he never came back she assumed he had picked the King's service and England over her.

Now the two have come face to face again. Each Stubbornly refuses to acknowledge they are still in love with the other. Each waiting for the other to make the first move. Neither wishing to play the part of a fool. Each feeling betrayed that the other didn't make the grand gesture. A meddling mother and Queen, however,  just may pull off what seems to be the  impossible - getting them to admit their emotions.

I really enjoyed this book. I liked Mairi, despite her stubbornness, which almost cost her Connor. I have to admit I felt Mairi was the one at fault for the original break up. I chalk it up to her being young and insecure and not quite ready to part with her home. I loved the drama created by someone trying to kill Conner. I also enjoyed the complications which arose from Lord Oxford and his sister having feelings for Mairi and Conner respectively. I also liked the additional twist at the end (but I don't want to reveal any spoilers).  My favorite part, however, was when Connor and Mairi finally got together. *sigh* 

I also have to mention that I liked that at the beginning of the book all the characters were listed with their titles. Sometimes titles can be hard to keep track of. For example, Lord Huntley and Graham Grant are one and the same person. Without the reference at the front I'd probably get confused. I hope this is a trend we'll see in more books. It was a nice touch. I gave this one 4 out of 5 roses. 

Order series should be read:

1. Ravished by a Highlander
2. Seduced by a Highlander
3. Tamed by a Highlander
