Crystal's Rating:

Book Blurb (Goodreads): It's a mad, ill-advised journey that leads the usually sensible Lady Caroline Blacknall to the legendary isle of Muirin Inish, off the windswept coast of Ireland. Even so, she doesn't expect to find herself shipwrecked and then rescued by a man she believed she would never see again. A man who, long ago, held her life in his hands . . . and with it, her heart.
Reformed rake Sir Grant Dunmore knew he could never forget the beautiful woman he once endangered nor will he ever forgive himself. But history seems doomed to repeat itself, for as long as Caroline stays on the island, she is trapped in a secret plot that could forever free Ireland-or turn deadly for all. And yet, now that she is in his arms again, how can he dream of ever letting her go?

Crystal's Thoughts: Sensible Caroline Blacknall leaves her studious and scholarly life behind as she goes in search of the man whom, long ago, threatened her very existence and quite possibly her heart.  As she heads out on an adventure of a lifetime, she has a new found sense of self and learns to embrace it and all that comes with it.  This includes Sir Grant Dunmore, a man whom most thought would never reform his rakish ways to become the man Caroline always felt in her heart he could be.  
This was a wonderfully written story.  It captivated me page to page with it's high energy and dangerous and riveting action scenes.  The passion was amazing between Caroline and Grant, as they already had a bit of a spark from the previous book in the series and it's brought to blazing life between the pages (and sheets, and hay, and where ever else they can find) as they realize what they mean to each other.  There is a lot of historical references in the book, which were a little boorish to a NON history buff such as myself, but you can tell the author went into painstaking detail and it only served to make the novel more authentic.  All in all, this was a great tale of a young widow, looking for one thing, and finding something so much more precious than she could have ever imagined.
