Back Cover...

They never should have met. But they might be made for each other.

Feya Broon, a Scottish half Gypsy, knows what it is to go hungry. Trapped in the Edinburgh tenements with a father lost to his past and only the faded memory of her mother's faith, Feya is desperate to provide for her siblings. When an ill-conceived plan leads to thievery, she finds herself in the last place she'd ever want to be--captured by a palace guard. But there's something about this man that tears at every preconceived notion she's even had about the haughty English.

Alasdair Cairncross never dreamed he'd be forced to transport a gypsy woman halfway across the wilds of Scotland. The timing is disastrous, considering his fiancée's imminent arrival and his father's political goals. Not only that, but the fiery young woman threatens to lay bare secrets Alasdair would rather keep hidden. And yet the farther they travel together, the less concerned he finds himself with duty--both to the crown and to the plans his family has for him.

As their walls begin to crumble, Feya and Alasdair must fight to survive a decades-old feud, a Highland kidnapping, and the awakening of their own hearts.

What I Loved...

I recently read this and thought it summed up how I feel about Within The Veil perfectly.

In a romance like this, the happily ever after is expected, the story is the journey. ~ Beth Erin

The journey of Feya and Alasdair is beautifully written. An emotionally satisfying read. Its been a few days and I still haven't picked up a new book to read. A definite book hangover.

What I Liked...

Lately, I have been so intrigued with bi-racial or ethnic heroes and heroines and I was happy to find that here.

POSSIBLE SPOILER: I really enjoyed that most of the book Feya and Alasdair are together, Usually books don't have the hero and heroine together so often, but Brandy did it so well. It didn't feel like overkill. For this plot it was necessary. But I enjoyed every minute of it. I guess this should have gone under the "What I Loved" section...END SPOILER


The cover is GORGEOUS! and I did picture Feya that what in my head.

POSSIBLE SPOILER: I was left wanting for a different ending between Alasdair's parents. They had chemistry. END SPOILER

This book is a true gem and it is difficult reviewing without telling something juicy of the plot and I love you all too much to take away from the experience. So my suggestion is to go out and get the book. It's a beautiful story. A TRUE Christian fiction.
