Description from the publisher:
The final book of the Highland Fae Chronicles

Lorna lost everything to war. Her home, her wealth... her lover. And now she wants revenge.

When her hasty plan throws her at the mercy of her enemy’s men, she holds little hope of returning to her kin and fears death is around the corner. But could her salvation lie in the arms of her dark captor?

Logan has little time to be dealing with a stubborn noble woman. His orders are to prepare for war. His laird—the man he owes his life to—intends to join forces with the Norse and bring a battle to Scotland that will see the fate of the country forever changed. Scarred, and with no memory of his past, Logan is determined to forge a new future for himself as well as prove his loyalty to the laird.

But the beautiful lass has him questioning his previous life and his goals. When she starts claiming he once loved her, he knows he’s being manipulated and she’s taking advantage of his memory loss. So why is it so hard to resist the idea of having once been her lover?

With the threat of impending war—a battle that promises to bring slaughter to her family—can Lorna persuade Logan to believe her, and is the bitter man he’s become even worth saving?

Whatever the outcome of the battle, a certain interfering faery is resolved to see fate back on its correct path. And that means forcing Lorna and Logan together—no matter their differences.
This is the third and final book in the Highland Fae Chronicles.  It does stand alone, but I suggest reading them in order.

  Lorna is seeking revenge on the man who has taken her home and killed her soul mate.  Captured and placed in the dungeon – shackled, dirty, and certain that she will be put to death.  Imagine her surprise when she sees that the man holding her prisoner is Logan.  Logan remembers nothing of his life before be treated for his severe battle wounds.  He is determined to create a new life under his laird, despite the scars and amnesia, and has quickly risen to be Lord Gillean’s lead warrior.  He doesn’t believe Lorna when she claims they were lovers, believing it to be tricks and manipulation to get him to release her before Gillean returns and the Norse Wars begin again.  So why does he feel a tingle when they touch?  Can Lorna convince him of their past?  Can the fairy Teile once again succeed as a matchmaking fairy without using too much magic and destroying time lines?

I love Logan and Lorna.  There is a fire and intensity in their hearts, and their words, when they are together that is only rivaled by the intelligence and loyalty they both have.  

I ached for both of them over Logan’s amnesia.  His innate goodness has allowed him to believe the lies he has lived for the last year and to now believe that Lorna is the one trying to manipulate him.  Lorna has lived with the soul-crushing loss of him for the last year and now that he is there, alive, in front of her, she is being crushed again by the lies that he believes to be the truth.

There were also a lot of light-hearted scenes that had me giggling, especially at the end when Teile uses just a wee bit of magic to move things in the right direction.

I am truly sorry to see this series end.  Samantha Holt is a wonderful author and I am looking forward to very many stories from her.
