Alex MacKinloch is the chief of his clan and has to maintain a reputation. He's a warrior not afraid of anything. The thing is that he is afraid of losing his wife completely. He remembers the day he lost his wife and mourns what they could have had. The thing is that she is still alive yet in so many ways it's like she's not there. Knowing that someone wants to ruin him and the clan Alex is determined to make things right. Everybody says he should find a proper wife and not an English woman like Laren. Yet no matter what they think of their marriage he is determined to get his wife back no matter what the obstacles are right now.
Laren wants her husband back but is afraid of what he might feel right now. She knows it's been months since they made love or even acted like a couple. Like Alex she remembers the day they started growing apart and knows that it's nobody's fault. She's experienced the pain of losing a loved one and she knows time with Alex can be taken away any minute with the rivalry happening between clans. So she is determined to make him see she still has deep feelings for him. Laren wants more than anything to be his wife again in every way she can but can she convince him their marriage is still safe to continue.
Alex and Laren are two people who have experiencedpain and heartache. They are determined to make things right no matter what they need to do. Alex is a man who has many responsibilities but the one he needs to keep is feeling left out. Laren is a woman who ever since they got married feels like she can't live up to the clan's image. I loved that even though the citizens don't like her Laren is determined to be strong and help the clan in every way. Now Alex though he seems strong inside is a man who just needs love. This is the first I have read from Michelle Willingham and have to say loved it. I started reading it and couldn't put it down. It captured my attention from the beginning till the end. These two were great to read about and I can't wait for more from this talented author.
