has little choice but to return to her family’s home in the highlands. Her great-uncle, the Earl of Riddick, sends Logan Kendrick to escort her to the estate in time for Hogmanay celebrations. Logan, hoping to continue his successful business partnership with the earl, sees the opportunity to curry favor. But when their carriage is attacked on the road, Logan realizes there’s something this “Flower of the Graham clan” isn’t telling him about her past, managing to sneak her away from the incident but risking her already fragile reputation. Safely home, Logan thoughts are transfixed by the former nun, yet he knows looking out for the best interest of his son, Joseph, should be his first priority. Behind the scenes, the Kendricks and Grahams prepare for the holiday and start scheming to get the two back together.
VERDICT An abundance of adventure and an unusual premise quickly draw readers in to this Scotland-set Regency, making Kelly’s latest “Clan Kendrick” novel (The Highlander Who Protected Me) a perfect Christmas read, complete with family drama that could stand as a story all its own.
