Rezension bezieht sich auf: McClairen's Isle: The Ravishing One (Taschenbuch)
As a little girl, Fia Merrick's mother confronted her father for his betrayal of her clan. The Earl of Carr simply killed his wife, throwing her from a cliff. Avarice being his moral center, Carr killed off two more wealthy spouses. As an adult Fia fled her odious father by running off with an elderly aristocrat. Meanwhile, his daughter has learned one lesson from her sire and the only man she ever loved, Thomas McClairen: trust no one.
Thomas returns to England after spending time overseas as an indentured servant due to Carr's tricks. As part of his vengeance, he disguises himself as a Dunne and kidnaps Fia. He takes her to McClairen Isle where he and Fia fall in love. Though he knows Fia is nothing like her public image of a depraved individual, he still cannot stop thinking that she is Carr's daughter.
The third novel in Connie Brockway's McClairen isle trilogy is an exciting historical romance centering on the redemption of two wounded charcaters through love. The story line is fast-paced as the "quartet" plays out between the two lead charcaters, her father, and the seeming ghost of her mother. Fans who enjoyed the first two books will not be disappointed with the conclusion while new readers will seek the previous novels.
