This was my first story ever by B. Scott and it was a great introduction to this authors work. I really enjoyed this story and the characters. Our heroine, Brianne Dunbar, is happy and in love. She shares a wonderful life with her husban copy from Tantor Audio. She shares a wonderful life with her husband and child until that is all tragically taken away.

Brianne is not aware that Gavin is her intended husbands brother and when she finds out she is angry at Gavin and feels betrayed. He sympathizes with her tremendous loss but only wants to protect her even if it means seeing her marry his brother.
Brianne feels a terrible burden because she is mourning for her great loss but at the same time her feelings for Gavin are her only salvation and hope.

She had many twists and turns and there were many unexpected surprises. This story did not drag for me at all. I loved the pacing, I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see what would happen next and how Gavin and Brianne could find their way to one another when they seem to have many insurmountable obstacles. This story made me a fan of Scott and I cannot wait to read more by her.
Gavin was truly a hero and I really liked him. My only complaint was that at times I wanted him to become angry or crazy but he always took the higher ground. My other little issue was the amount of time that Brianne lost her family and fell in love with Gavin. For other reasons that I will not name, this plot worked but I felt that more time would have been better. I really enjoyed this story and highly recommend it.
Angela Dawe did an amazing job of narrating this story. At first it seemed she was rushing through the story but the voices she gave the characters made the story come alive and she really seemed to understand them. Sep 10, Ann L rated it really liked it.

Gavin M By B. Gavin MacClurry has been sent to retrieve Brielle and deliver her to his clan to the Laird's oldest son who he has no respect for and is his brother. Despite every effort to resist temptation, Gavin finds himself utterly captivated by his brother's bethrothed. Now he must find a way to stop the wedding, prove his clan's innocence, and then win Brianne's heart. Sounds easy and straightforward right? Bj Scott shows off her talented writting skills in this wonderful stand alone novel. I can tell you that I was cheering for the heroine right from the start.
She is a very strong woman to go through all of the things that she did and was pushed into things through no choice of her own. My favorite part of this book is that this poor lady got her Happily Ever After. My hat goes off to BjScott as she knows just what us the readers want in a book.

The man she is betroth to is a womanizer, selfish, and very cure. He sent his brother to bring her to their keep and on the way there they fall in love. Can love grow for hate or will she keep her vow to revenge her family and clan. Great story. Mar 29, Candace N rated it really liked it. I wasn't expecting to like this as much as I did.
Nothing really stood out to me or set it apart when I first picked it up I'm impressed by the writing, everything is written so vividly and it flows really well. The characters are great and it is a fun storyline. It was mostly predictable but I was so involved in the story that I didn't care. A couple things I found hard to believe but other than that, a very enjoyable read.

Sep 11, Rhonda rated it it was amazing. Scott, with her Highland Series, has become one of my most favored treasured authors. This is one author I mark my calendar for all future releases and has been placed on my auto purchase list. This sexy passionate romance captures the reader from the first page and simply will not let go. The heroine, Brianne Dunbar, loses both her husband and son during an attack on their keep. Her father, who disowned her upon her marriage to her husband laird of the Dunbar Clan, believes his daughter has the Druid Stone which has been in the Dunbar Clan for centuries, and wants it for himself.
It is said that whoever has the Druid Stone will be protected from all and obtain much power. Brianne is a strong independent lady and she does have the stone, of which she promised her husband she would keep it safe and pass it on to their son one day. Her betrothed sends his brother, Gavin MacClurry, to collect his betrothed and escort her to their home. This book begins with highly emotional sparks and delivers all the way through filling every expectation of the reader.
I highly recommend this author and book to anyone who loves reading top shelf historical romance. Sep 09, Susan rated it it was amazing. I have been a fan of B.
