Library Journal Review

The first volume in a new Scottish historical trilogy, Potter's latest novel takes a noble hero with a dangerous secret and a Jacobite heroine determined to save her young brother, forces them into a marriage of the King's convenience, and lets the fireworks begin. Set in the turbulent times following the Battle of Culloden, this fast-paced adventure, vaguely reminiscent of The Scarlet Pimpernel, is riddled with deception and treachery, and as the protagonists work toward their separate goals, they have little idea that their ultimate purposes are so closely aligned. Well-drawn, memorable characters, compelling action, and Machiavellian political intrigue add to a story that Potter's many fans will be waiting for. Potter (Chase the Wind) is a popular writer of Scottish and Western historical romance and lives in Cordova, TN. (c) Copyright 2010.
