This book was outstanding. While it is part of the series, I was fine reading it as a stand alone. The story in noway was a continuing ARC. Just has recurring characters from previous books. I do now have the previous titles on order. Even though the Beast of the Highlands sounds awfully familar to me. The story is engaging and keeps you quickly turning pages. The characters are wonderful and more. The plotline while I figured out part of it early on, parts of it were shocking and will most likely lead readers to tear up a bit. And Duncan, well he's a hero I'd cross a bed of hot coals to meet. This is a great historical romance. I just had to tell you all about it. It's been awhile since I've been this excited about a book/author/ charcter. Now I want the other books. And while I just ordered them, I'm very very tempted to just hit BN and buy them new,LOL
