For all her life, Lady Evie Verrick had been regaled of tales of the Highlands from her Highland born and bred mother. She had grown up dreaming of chivalrous knights, sword-fighting, horse back riding. Tales of kin and family, loyalty and the warmth of a home. But being brought up in a traditional English household with a traditional father, her mother was the closest thing to the Highlands she could get. And when her mother died of pneumonia before her coming out, left to her father's care, Evie wants now, more then ever, to see the promised lands that she grew up with.

  Connor Gilroy had served as the first in command to the MacKenzie clan for as long as he could remember. He owed his loyalty to his best friend and brother in arms, Hammond MacKenzie, who had saved him from being skinned alive by English soldiers years ago, before the truce was signed between the two lands. Having no love lost for the country, Hammond would be the only person who could ever convince Connor to step foot back into English lands. His chief had recently received news on the death of the aunt he has never met, but Hammond was a man of his word, and he had promised his father he would care for all kin, regardless of who they were.
  
  But Connor never would've imagined that the cousin of his best friend would be a spirit of the flames. The way Evie took on life and all of its problems with a passion that ignited a hearth, would perhaps be the first time someone ever ignited more then just passion and desire within him.

Pretty sure that you should be: "Unless you're planning on descalping me" or "Unless you're planning to descalp me"
Goodness I still can't get over the wording and such!!! This is why I love this books set back in an older time period!
Also I'm glad she's at least over twenty. No-one seems comfortable writing past that age it seems.
                              
                              Although it is quite young... but I guess it would make sense for the time period. They all did marry quite young. It'd be kinda odd to see a twenty-seven year old (woman) who had yet to wed.

Evie sound like an interesting character, I kind of like her attitude, she is not all submissive and that is what capture my attention
