Alaric is betrothed to Keeley's childhood friend Rhionna, so they try to resist their growing attraction as Alaric heals. But the resistance proves futile and there is much squishing together of hot bodies during sick room visits. Things slowed down a bit in the middle with the author resorting to bedroom bondage to keep the reader interested. For me this it didn't work in an historical romance when there are real manacles and torture just downstairs in the dungeons.
The lack of momentum in the middle was my main issue with what was otherwise a fun read. It was also too easy to predict the solution to the main problems between Alaric and Keeley. But there were really good moments as well including a sensitive portrayal of sexual abuse and the warmth of forming new family bonds. So while I recommend this book, I think the other two books in this series are better.
Alaric is stunned by the feelings he feels for Keeley, they are unlike anything he has ever felt before but he knows his duty is to his clan and it is tearing him up. When Keeley learns of Alaric engagement, and to whom, she is very saddened as she has already grown to love this strong, fierce man but also knows that nothing can come between them as the woman he is to marry, is Keeleys sister in heart. As time passes and their attraction grows, they decide to live in the moment and cherish the memories they will make forever. And those memories are smokin! When the truth of what happened to Keeley and her clan is finally revealed, it is a huge source of anger for Alaric and his brothers. But as the King has now approved of Alarics marriage and is planning on attending, Alaric knows his duty is to his clan, not his heart.
Together, they are a couple you will root for even while you don't want to see the clan falter as a result. Overall, It was a wonderful ending and All's well that ends well. I really enjoyed it, a solid 4.5 stars. That being said the third book in this series is astonishing it's so good.

The connection Alaric and Keeley have is an instantaneous one, they find themselves unable to resist, and thus despite knowing they cannot wed, they decide to enjoy the short time they have together, even when injured and when one is riddled with a fever. I wasn’t keen on some of the writing when it came to the sex/making love scenes, take for example: ‘His cock slid over her entrance and then stabbed deep’, am I mad for cringing a little, and thinking ouch?
I didn’t like the fact that Alaric knowing he was going to marry another, and the fact that the thought of ending his arranged betrothal despite his fierce attraction didn’t enter his mind – he still ardently perused Keeley - this one key component of the tale that displeased me, the issue of a potential child also seemed to escape him, but…it didn’t lead to me hating the read or hating the main characters. Although Alaric is certainly not my favourite highlander/leading man and whilst the story isn’t a terrible one, I like this read under protest and I don’t know if I’ll ever re-read! That being said when Alaric finally comes to his senses, and the way in which he stays by Keeley, I did find my emotions ensnared a fair bit. Banks did well in pulling at my heartstrings in certain scenes.
Now Keeley does give into Alaric and her their desires quite fast, although she does try to resist, but she is definitely the character I felt the most sympathy for (rightly or wrongly).
I do want to know what will happen when it comes to book 3 and Caelen and Rionna – I don’t see Rionna being the biddable wife he is expecting.
