The Devil’s Heart by Cathy Maxwell (The Chattan Curse #3)

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

🤦face palming myself for not realizing sooner that this book was part of a series and that it would have been more enjoyable reading it in order. But still happy that I read this and enjoyed it 😊. The Devil’s Heart can be read as a standalone as I didn’t find any difficulty in following the background story about the Chattan curse.

The curse itself was unique and interesting. Heath and Maggie belong to families that have been enemies centuries ago. The Macnachtan family is the reason why Maggie has traveled to the Highlands in the hope of saving the lives of her brothers who have been affected by the curse. The story flows well with interesting characters and the small mystery of Heath’s brother’s murder. The story begins slowly but picks up pace soon as supernatural events torments Maggie who is convinced of Fenella’s curse and even though Heath refuses to believe in the witch’s power initially, he is forced to change his way of thinking as numerous things happen around them.

The romance has depth as both Heath and Margaret changes according to situations and each of them realizes their inherent strength. Happy reading to lovers of this genre.

They call her the Unattainable. Lady Margaret Chattan spurned every suitor for her hand, vowing never to marry. The only way to break the curse plaguing her family for two centuries is this ultimate sacrifice. But now her brothers’ lives are in danger. Determined to save them, she risks her very soul by traveling into the heart of the Highlands to battle a force that has transcended time.

Heath Macnachtan is not superstitious. Laird of the most independent, nonconforming, madly infuriating clan ever to grace Scotland, he believes he has his hands full. And then a woman lauded as one of the most beautiful in England arrives on his doorstep with wild accusations and a mystical quest…one that just might help him discover who murdered his own brother.

But the real danger for Heath and Margaret is not a supernatural foe, but a very real love that could destroy them both.
