Laird of the Mist by Paula Quinn

I read Laird of the Mist for the ROR Fall reading challenge. It had been highly recommended by a friend from Shelfari/ROR. I now understand her excitement about this book.
Laird of the Mist has got to be the ultimate wounded hero novel. Callum MacGregor was captured by his enemy as a child and held in the dungeon with his young sister. They both survived this tortured life for nine years, bearing physical and emotional scars. Callum has vowed to avenge all of the MacGregor clan, claim his name, and seek revenge against all Campbells.
Kate Campbell has been taught to fear and hate the MacGregors, especially the one they call The Devil. To her surprise The Devil is the very man he comes to her rescue when she is attacked by another raiding clan.
The desire erupts between these two with a vengeance. Kate is determined to make Callum like her and look past her name. Callum is determined to hate Kate for her last name. She is simply a means to an end.
Laird of the Mist comes full of passion, perils, and deceit. This is a definite 5 star read!!!

Thanks for the review!! I've seen this one in the bookstore a number of times now and I've always been tempted but ended up putting it back. Next time I'm there, I'll have to pick it up and buy it. It sounds like a good book :)
