In 1535, following the King murdering their father, their mother Nicola Perry exiles her three daughters to different remote parts of Scotland for their safety. Catherine goes to Balvenie where she married her host John Stewart (see THE DREAMER). Laura travels to St. Duthac where she weds her protector William Ross (see THE ENCHANTRESS). The wildest one Adrianne drives the Abbess of Barra in the Western Isles crazy with her defiance.

Eventually, Wyntoun MacLean, master of the Isle, arrives and takes Adrianne away with him when he leaves. His seemingly altruistic motive disguises his effort to obtain the Treasure of Tiberius for the Knights of the Veil. At his father¿s castle, Adrianne and Wyntoun agree to marry in order to rescue her mother, now held hostage, and to attain the treasure without jeopardizing her now married and pregnant siblings. As they work together, Wyntoun and Adrianne fall in love, but any meaningful relationship remains in jeopardy from a traitor and the individual who abducted her mother.

THE FIREBRAND, the conclusion to the Perry siblings Highland trilogy, is an exiting, well-written historical romance filled with suspense and intrigue. The story line is fun as the lead charcaters struggle with an unknown enemy and their growing love for one another. The return of the stars from the previous tales adds to the overall pleasure of the plot. Though the story line requires some acceptance by the audience, May McGoldrick attains her third gold medal with this triumphant novel.

This was a splendidly done scottish historical romance. I just finished the last book of the trilogy and wished that there were more. How sad that today there are no longer magnificently handsome, passionate, gallant, and chilvarous men such as John the Athol, William Ross and Wyntoun MacLean. This was a beautifully written novel, fast-paced, plots everywhere to keep the reader in suspense. Not to mention the exquisite love scenes that will sure keep your heart-racing!

I began reading the second in this series and from there, read all three. I continued to peruse used book stores for other out-of-print books by this husband & wife duo. The stories are page-turners and the use of language and humor is refreshing. The books offer, not only a great escape from everyday life, but also a great transition from heavier reading.

While I loved the stories of the other two sisters, Catherine & Laura, the story of Adrianne was difficult to read. She was over the top too much. Incorporating their mother, Nicola's love story, saved this from being a 2 star
