Summary from GoodReads: The ruthless enforcer of Scotland’s most powerful clan, Jamie Campbell is the most feared man in the Highlands. Raw physical strength coupled with cunning political acumen make him a powerful force with whom few men will dare to reckon. Determined to see the Highlands tamed of its lawlessness and unrest, Jamie’s objectives are clear: under the guise of seeking the Chief of Lamont’s daughter’s hand in marriage, discover whether the Lamonts are harboring any outlawed MacGregors. But guise turns to desire when he meets the beautiful spitfire who rules the household with a dainty iron fist. The fierce Highlander never expects that the woman he wants above all others will test his duty and loyalty to his clan to the breaking point.

Cosseted and adored by her family, Caitrina Lamont has no intention of abandoning her beloved father and doting four older brothers for a husband—especially a Campbell. But Jamie Campbell is nothing like the parade of suitors that Caitrina’s father usually traipses across their hall. His raw masculinity threatens her in a way no man ever had before. But when Caitrina’s idyllic world is shattered, could the man she blames for her tragedy become her only hope for the future?

My Review: {This book is for adult readers due to sexually detailed situations} -- Who doesn't love the idea of a knight in shining armour, there when they need him? Jamie Campbell is definitely a figure to not cross and Caitrina Lamont is stubborn, yet spoiled. Both of these characters come out so strongly in the book. You feel like you know them.
Caitrina, even though spoiled and catered to by her father and brothers, managed to not make you hate her because she is still strong and independent...stubborn, yet not whiny. So many other characters in books that are similar to her, have you hating them from start to end of the book. Not Caitrina.
This books makes you love the idea of men sporting at games of strength and skill simply to gain your hand in marriage {*sigh* if only...}. And the first meeting of Caitrina and Jamie is a wonderful laugh.
The author manages to draw you so into her characters. You feel the frustration and the fears of the characters...the heartbreak and tears...the love and steaming sex...the loneliness and fulfillment. It's like you're there.
Monica creates the perfectly clear setting for her readers to lose themselves into the Highlands. A book you'll want to read again. **Campbell Trilogy #1**
