Instead of wedding for love, Madeline is forced to wed a notorious outlaw. She runs, never expecting Rhys to follow—or charm her with stories. Once she sees that each tale reveals a secret, her heart is lost. But will that be enough when Rhys’ past threatens the future?
More cherished than gold are the Jewels of Kinfairlie, and only the worthiest may fight for their love . . . The Laird of Kinfairlie has unmarried sisters, each a gem in her own right. And he has no choice but to see them all wed in haste.
Lady Madeline’s heart is not for sale . . . especially not to a notorious outlaw like Rhys FitzHenry. Yet Madeline’s hand has been sold, to none other than this battle-weary warrior with a price on his head. A more dutiful maiden might cede to the Laird’s command and meekly accept her fate, but Madeline has never been obedient. She decides to run away, though she never dreams that Rhys will pursue her. She does not expect this taciturn man to woo her with fanciful stories, much less that each of his enthralling tales will reveal a scar upon his shielded soul. She never imagines that a man like Rhys could imperil her own heart while revealing so little of his own feelings.
When Rhys’s past threatens his future, Madeline takes a leap of faith. She dares to believe him innocent—and risks her own life to pursue a passion more priceless than the rarest gem.
This was an interesting meet. I enjoyed the interactions between Madeline and Rhys. With so many secrets and misunderstandings, they were still able to find love. Her independence and his convictions made me love this couple. The narration by Saskia Maarleveld brought the story to live.
I received a copy of this audiobook as a gift, and this is my unsolicited review.
