The Devil’s Heart-Cathy Maxwell

The Devil’s Heart

Cathy Maxwell

Avon, Apr 30 2013, $7.99

ISBN: 9780062070241

The three Hatton siblings (Neal, Harry and Margaret) swore to never foolishly fall in love as those feelings trigger Fenella the witch’s centuries old Chattan Curse that meant dying young. By 1814, Neal fell in love with and married Thea (see Lyon’s Bride) and Harry with Portia (see The Scottish Witch). Margaret vows never her as she wants to prevent an early demise by avoiding entanglements of the heart.

However, Margaret needs to do whatever it takes to save the lives of her foolish brothers, which means journeying to Clan Macnachton in Scotland. Laird Heath Macnachton has enough issues to deal with including the murder of his brother, but the obstinate Englishwoman demands he accompany her in her fight against a powerful bewitching enemy. When her efforts begin to show promise identifying his sibling’s killer Heath joins her mission. Neither wanted love to bind them.

The third Chattan Curse Regency romance begins slowly but turns hyper once the protagonists team up in search of a killer. Readers will appreciate their adventures in love, curses and a murder investigation.
