A fantastic addition to Emma Prince's Highland Bodyguards series! Book five in the series is the story of Logan and Helena, and it's a beautiful story of passion and adventure.

He is no man of honor… To help his sister heal from a traumatic captivity, Logan Mackenzie reluctantly seeks the Bodyguard Corps’ protection. After so many years as a mercenary, he is resistant to live by their code—until he rescues a beautiful Englishwoman from a snowstorm. He vows to protect Helena, even though she kindles a desire that threatens to expose his shameful past. Now he must fight to regain the honor he thought destroyed years before—or risk losing Helena forever. She is fleeing for her life… When a foreboding vision warns Helena that her life is in danger, she escapes from her Borderland castle to the Highland wilds. Under Logan’s care, Helena begins to hope she can trust the scarred warrior with the secret of her curse. When forced to confront the past she abandoned, Helena must choose between surrendering to fate or having the courage to forge her own path with Logan. But will their love be enough to overcome the hidden truths threatening to tear them apart?
