Shunned by her village, weaver Morag Cameron lives a solitary existence in the woods—until the night she finds a sorely wounded Highlander by the loch. Under her care, the handsome warrior slowly recovers his strength, but his memories have disappeared. Morag is torn. For if she helps him regain his past, she may sacrifice a life with the man she has come to love...
Wulf MacCurran wants nothing more than to claim Morag as his own, but his past holds too many dangerous secrets—secrets that put them both in mortal danger. He must discover who attacked him and left him for dead. Traveling to Edinburgh, Wulf and Morag find themselves swept into a mystery with the power to determine the fate of their passions—and change Scotland forever...
Morag has no desire to travel with Wulf to Edinburgh but he’s worried for her safety so she finally relents. They go under the guise of selling her cloth which she weaves but things don’t exactly go their way. The person they enlist to help them instead shares their whereabouts with the one man they are seeking. This wreaks havoc with their plans and soon Morag and Wulf are fighting to stay free and together as well as fighting for their lives.
Morag believes that even if Wulf says he loves her that he will eventually leave her. She has been shunned as a harlot and he is cousin to the Laird. She knows that their time together is short but she wants to make the most of it that she can. Wulf knows that he loves Morag and no matter what happens he WILL be with her.
I really enjoyed this third installment in the Claimed by the Highlander series. It was a sad story at times but as everything worked out in the end it was all good.
I loved Morag and Wulf together. I thought that the pair were both incredibly stubborn and that made their pairing all the better. They were each willing to fight for what they wanted. Morag was an incredibly strong woman after all that she’d been through and I admired her inner strength. Wulf had been dealt a hard blow by life but he hadn’t given up – even without his memories.
The intrigue in this story was quite good and I was happy to see things resolved for those involved. I’ve really liked Keats’s writing in her first three books and look forward to reading more of her work in the future.
