While visiting her motherís kinsmen, Avery Murray is abducted during a siege and literally tossed at the feet of sinfully good looking Cameron MacAlpin. She is to be used to pay an outstanding debt. However, when Cameron discovers the identity of his alluring captive he canít believe his good fortune. Fate has smiled upon him and placed in his hands the weapon he needs to bring Sir Payton Murray Ė Averyís brother Ė who is accused of dishonoring Cameronís sister.

Even with Averyís assertions of her brotherís innocence, Cameron plans to visit the same insult upon Avery in a misguided effort to avenge his clan. He is thwarted time and again by Avery and his strong desire to have her in his bed. He makes no secret of his desire for her or his willingness to use her. Of course, he only adds to her outrage when he vows to gain his ends through seduction not force.

The worst thing is she knows that this braw laddie has the power to stir her deepest passions. Cameron ignites a fire within her like no man has before and she will stop at nothing to keep his plan from succeeding. How can she give this man everything when he seeks to humiliate her? Can Cameron follow through with his plan knowing that it will tear Avery from his arms and drive a wedge between their clans?

Hannah Howell revisits the dynamic Murray clan in the second book in the Murray Daughter trilogy, and the fifth book in the bestselling series. Avery Murray daughter of Nigel and Gisele Murray (Highland Honor) is typical of Ms. Howellís heroines; they are strong-willed, outspoken, extraordinary women with the strength to change the world. This book is a thrilling journey you will find hard to put down. Throw in a thoroughly arousing tale filled with handsome, sexy men and passionate love scenes and you have yourself an all-nighter.

But donít take my word for it see for yourself.
