Thomas Carrick is determined to make his own life in the bustling port city of Glasgow, far from the demands of the Carrick clan, eventually with an appropriate wife on his arm. But disturbing events on his family's estate force Thomas to return to the Scottish countryside -- where he is forced to ask for help from the last woman he wants to face. Thomas has never forgotten Lucilla Cynster and the connection that seethes between them, but to marry Lucilla would mean embracing a life he's adamant is not for him. Strong-willed and passionate, Lucilla knows Thomas is hers -- her fated lover, husband, protector, mate. He is the only man for her, just as she is his one true love. How can he ignore a bond stronger than reason and choose a different path? She's determined to fight for their future, and while she cannot command him, she has enticements of her own to wield when it comes to tempting Thomas Carrick.

I totally agree with Twindledee. I read most of Stephanie Laurens' past published novels but after this one I gave up reading her recent works. Unlike Lisa Kleypas or Mary Balogh, a lot of Romance writers don't seem to be able to maintain their standard work level. So sad!!

This was a painful read for me - slow and ponderous. Unsatisfactory end to the mystery that Thomas and Lucilla were embroiled in.

Wasn't sure if this was a mystery/thriller or a romance. Story begins with a mystery (a lot of time was spent investigating) and then, after a series of incidents, they are out of the picture (literally, the laird sends them packing for their safety) and the book concentrates on the romance.

There are better stories from Stephanie Laurens.
