In a tale of strong ties and true love, Maya Banks’s trilogy comes to its stunning conclusion, as the youngest McCabe brother uses sword and seduction to save his clan—and seal his heart.
Caelen McCabe’s young, reckless heart nearly destroyed his clan. Now, putting family loyalty above all else, he steps up to marry his older brother’s jilted bride and salvage the uneasy alliance between two clans. While beautiful Rionna McDonald is a fit wife for any man, Caelen trusts no woman, especially not this sweet temptress who torments him with white-hot longing.
As the sacrificial lamb in her father’s power game, Rionna will do her duty but vows to protect her heart and her pride from humiliation. Despite everything, though, the heat in Caelen’s touch melts her defenses, and she craves the sensual delights of a husband who guards his emotions as fiercely as his clan. But when the ultimate battle for the McCabe legacy is upon them, Rionna’s true warrior spirit emerges. She will risk the wrath of her father, the fury of her enemies, and her life to prove to Caelen that his wife’s love is too precious to lose.
First Line(s): The weather for her first wedding had been a splendor of nature.
Favorite Line(s): Love required sacrifice. It required trust and faith. It required making yourself completely vulnerable to the one you loved.
My Review: A great start to 2012! I picked the right book forsure!
Maya Banks wrapped up the McCabe trilogy perfectly! She delivered from the first book all the way to the last and never once lost any steam!
I loved how Rionna and Caelen both came into their relationships with battles they fought within themselves, it made them seem more real to me.
I wish we could hear Gannon's story, he played such a big role in all 3 books... maybe Maya will surprise us???
The McCabe brothers are a mighty, loyal and sexy force to reckon with. This trilogy is a must for any who loves a good romance series!
The one thing that bugs me about this series, and this has nothing to do with Maya Banks is the covers! While they are all nice to look at, none of them got the McCabe brother's right. It is times like this I wish authors had a bit more say in the cover art.
