After years of brutal torture, Callum MacKinloch is finally free of his captors--but his voice is still held prisoner. He'd never let anyone hear him scream.Although Lady Marguerite de Montpierre's chains may be invisible, they threaten to tie her to a loveless and cruel marriage.

When Marguerite discovers Callum waiting to die, her heart aches for the warrior beneath the suffering--but they can have no future. Yet she is the one woman with the power to tame the rage locked inside him. Maybe he can find another reason to live...for her.
My Thoughts:
I wasn't sure how the author was going to pull this off, writing for a character who couldn't not speak, but she did it and she did it in spades.  Wonderful stretch of her writing ability, bravo to Ms Willingham.  

Callum and Marguerite were kindered sprits, both imprisoned, she by the invisible chains of her father in arranging her marriage and Callum who has been imprisoned by chains since he was twelve.

Marguerite risks it all by coming to his aid, just that moment of kindness gives him the courage and the will to survive. Callum suffers ongoing beating, he stands strong throughout all of them, determined not to break, he conditions himself not to scream, although his wounds heal over time, he remains silent and his voice is still tucked away. No matter how hard he tried, his words were locked away, keeping him silent.  Despite the silence and against all odds, these two fall in love.  And in the end, will  the sacrifices they make to be together be enough?  Can Callum save her as she had saved him? And what a love story it is..

The characters were so well written, you could feel their emotions. This heartbreaking story is one not to miss. Be prepared for a roller coaster of emotions, there is so much going on in this book so hang on tight. Can true love prevail after all the obstacles that is placed in front of them? You just need to read it to see how they face each obstacle head on..

I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

The first two are a must, they provide the background to Callum's captavity and his brothers.
