Goodreads Summary

Lady Margaret Grey of Hartfell wants for nothing. The daughter of a knight, she has a loving family, wealth, and even a secret romance with the blacksmith's son. But all that is torn from her one fateful night when her home is attacked and her family killed. She is left with nothing but bitterness, an unwavering mistrust of men, and a strange and mysterious curse that allows her to feel the thoughts of anyone who touches her.

Now, after six years away, Margaret is returning home for one reason: revenge. She hopes that by avenging her family's deaths, she will somehow be freed from her curse. But it won't be easy. The identities of the raiders are still unknown, she has little left to her name, and traveling alone in the Northumbrian hills during the border wars is dangerous. Matters are further complicated by handsome Angus Robson, a Scotsman whose charm threatens to distract her from her plans. But the raiders are closer than she knows, and Margaret soon realizes that what she believed to be a curse may be the key to finding those she seeks. One touch will reveal the truth.

My review

This book is amazing. I loved everything about it. There is intrigue and mystery with every turn of the page. Right away, the reader is introduced to Margaret. She is amazing! Stubborn and enchanting. Her curse is very mysterious and I loved how she is hesitant to use it, even though it would help her in her quest to find those who killed her family. I enjoyed how the author waited to explain what happened to Margaret and her family. It was a wonderful way to keep me reading and reading. The plot and pacing of this book are expert! I also enjoyed Angus's character. He is a wonderful hero, who tries as hard as he can to help Margaret. I looked forward to every page he was on. 

5 out of 5 stars.
