Alasdair Penhallow, laird of his clan and master of Castle Tadgh, is forced to end his carefree bachelorhood, thanks to an ancient decree that requires him to marry. But Alasdair's search for a biddable wife comes to a screeching halt when Fate serves up Fiona Douglass. Prickly as a thistle, Fiona challenges him at every turn, rendering herself surprisingly irresistible. Her love would be a prize indeed...if Alasdair could accept it.
Fiona gave her heart once and doesn't plan to repeat that folly. Yet she finds herself drawn to Alasdair's intelligence and strength, and the passion he incites goes well beyond her expectations for what's only a marriage of expedience. Despite herself, she's falling in love with her husband.
But there's a high wall between them - and Fiona's not sure it can ever be torn down.

Quick & Witty Highland Romance
Very enjoyable 2nd book from a new author. I bought this book and the first book in the series on the recommendation of author Cathy Maxwell and was not disappointed! The writing style is quick and witty and the heroine is an older independent lass not afraid to speak her mind. Marvelous! Recording is wonderful.

Interesting twists and so much emotion
I loved the narration and the story was very unique with tweaks to the usual forced marriage/marriage of convenience trope. The nod to "The Bachelor" was amusing. The characters had to deal with so much loss and betrayal to grow. It was heartbreaking and beautiful. I can't wait for future titles.
