He [Patrick] clenched his jaw in a hard line and turned his thoughts from the dead to the living. To the lass. Elizabeth Campbell was kneeling over one of her injured guardsmen beside the other woman. As if sensing his scrutiny, Elizabeth turned and lifted her gaze to his.

Although not the way I envisioned the book, I absolutely loved the 1st half of the book even knowing how sad itd be when Elizabeth gets to learn about Patricks deception. Knowing what she went through with one suitor didnt help at all. But, I adored how possessive Patrick was about Elizabeth all through the book.
On the course of the story, I identified that this one goes almost simultaneously with Highland Warrior. Elizabeth or Lizzy is known to us from a few previous installments. We knew she was shy and reserved, prone to stammering. Here, I saw a woman underneath, a strong and passionate one at that just waiting to be discovered.
We also get to see some of what happened to her in the past few years. She has pale hair and bright blue eyes to go with it. Then when I knew about what her last suitor did to her, I was mad, so so mad! The poor girl already went through 2 engagements; one childhood engagement broken by something that her illegitimate older brother Duncan did, the other was with Rory MacLeod of Highlander Untamed.
The first scene of the book, where we also meet Patrick, a scene as these two meet, albeit not personally.
Patrick witnessed a scene that led him to plan his deceit that played the vital role in the book. It was a Highland Game fest, where that suitor was making fun of her and Elizabeth heard it all. It was so sad, the way it all happened and she started stammering and trying to get out of there. In her haste, she fell into the mud and Patrick, who heard it all and was already incensed on her behalf, helped her out. It was a huge chance he took, being a MacGreor and an outlaw, decreed by King James.
His cousin, the Chief Alasdair was about to create some distractions. Lizzy, meanwhile, broke the engagement and has never since took another chance.
Now at an advanced age, 2 yrs after that incident, her cousin Argyll is subtly reminding her of her duty. Also seeing her two closest friends, Meg and Flora from Highlander Unmasked and Highlander Unchained finding love makes her wistful. She does often think of that MacGregor man later she learned that it was someone from the MacGregors who showed her such kindness that day.
She also wounds the leader of the gang with her dirk. They talk on their way to Campbell Castle and the man introduces himself as Patrick Murray, a guardsman of some lord. Lizzy is quite intrigued and instantly sympathetic, wants to comfort him. Since she had no idea of his real identity, she takes his offer to accompany her to the Campbell Castle. Campbells were his close allies so he allotted the MacGregor lands to them.
The feud started and grew as the centuries passed by. The Black Duncan was as ruthless a laird as it can be and when he wants something nothing stands in his way, not even his own sister. He and his siblings somehow survived and now working with their cousin Alasdair. When he heard that his land and the castle built on it, Edinample, is given to Lizzy as her dowry, he put forth a plan. In the meantime, Alasdair along with his youngest brother Iain and a few other MacGregors would take refuge with the Lamonts more on it in Highland Warrior.
But the inherent truth was Patrick was already taken with Lizzy and her vulnerability, in a protective sort of way. I know.
By the time it all comes out, the deed would be done. Lizzy makes Patrick stay because she really wanted him around. Something about him just makes her breathless. He also saved her from a wolf attack on their way back from the MacGregor attack. Jamie, in the meantime, pays a visit to Lizzy hearing the news of attack.
But soon after Patrick tells her how much he really wants her and what it does to him errm yah, he did. I so enjoyed their little banters and scenes together on their stay on Campbell Castle. Lizzy was trying hard to forget that Argyll might soon call upon her. There were a few kisses but the problem was when Patrick said something about her skin being soft, she suddenly remembered her last suitor. That scene was actually very heart wrenching, the things that man was saying to his cronies about her, things Patrick and Lizzy both heard.
She tries to give him wide berth but the wretch would tease her with his gorgeous face, green eyes and half nude manly body there was a scene I totally loved :p , just to irritate her. Lizzy hears of him and his men going to the village, the informer using innuendos, which she understands and is instantly angry and jealous.
She tells him as much when next day he followed her. But Patrick vehemently denied being with other women, telling her very clearly he wants only one woman in his life. Lord, it was sexy!
Though I knew he was playing a deception but his feelings for Lizzy were genuine; the game has shifted and now going completely wrong for him.
