I believe you stay in purgatory has only just begun…
Braelynn Galbraith wants peace for her beloved Scotland, marriage to her childhood sweetheart, and a house full of children. In that order. But evil incarnate, in the form of Gard Marschand, turns her life inside out and destroys all hope of a decent marriage.
Known in the Highlands as the legendary devil, Gard Marschand raids his way across Scotland and England amassing power and property in his malevolent wake. He will stop at nothing in his pursuit to regain what is lost—even conceal his true identity and associate with his enemies. His determination is all-consuming until he and his men lay siege to Ross-shire and one feisty Scottish lass obliterates his single-minded purpose.
Can Gard abandon his deep-seated need for revenge for a love that just might save his rotten soul? Or will he succumb to the demons that hound him and surrender to the devil within?
What a fabulous, well crafted story! I could hardly put it down. I love Brae as much as I loved Holly in the Always Cambridge series. They’re not the same character at all, but Brae is just as spunky, brave, creative, smart and grounded.

“I’ll start by saying this was an AWESOME read. I really enjoyed this book. It reminded me of the old-skool romances I grew up reading, but with a 21st century flair…
The plot is bang on. Besides the romance between Brae & Gard, there is mystery, there are quests…
…Setting is rich and detailed. I felt as if I was in Scotland!

I absolutely loved this Scottish tale, an action packed story I just couldn’t put it down. Brilliantly written! One of the best I’ve read this year. ~ Goodreads
I love a good historical romance, especially those set in Scotland. With a spirited young miss in Brae and a rogue in Gard, HK Carlton has created two of my favorite characters in The Devil Take You. With a story that ranks with those of Jude Deveraux and Nora Roberts, HK’s tale will sweep you up in a tide of passion and intrigue that will keep you turning pages. ~ Goodreads
This book was wonderful in so many ways. Feisty heroine, brooding hero, historical facts woven into the plot, descriptions of sweeping landscapes, drama and intrigue. ~ Goodreads Reader
The book starts off with a bang, Braelynn sending messages for the rebels. From here it’s a wild ride of fantastic Scottish accents, action & romance! ~ Find the complete review on the The TBR Pile
