Excerpt:

Ridley Malvern, Lord Caulfield—given the title of baron by the queen for saving her favorite son from drowning—was about to marry a total stranger.

He stood at the altar of the small chapel located on his parents’ estate, doing his best to appear the eager groom. As the organist played the first notes of a tune he failed to recognize, and his heavily veiled bride started down the aisle on the arm of her strapping older brother, Ridley’s gut wrenched. It was all he could do to keep from bolting. His eldest brother, Lord Eastleigh, stood beside him acting the part of groomsman. Eastleigh tilted his head toward Ridley and spoke through his teeth. “Do you think she might resemble her sibling?”

“God, I hope not. Look at his hair and beard, would you? They’re so orange and thick, he could hide a carrot with none being the wiser.”

Eastleigh’s lips twitched. “I doubt she sports a beard. But then, one never—”

“Sod off.”

Jamie MacGregor strode down the aisle with his sister on his arm as if heading into battle, his red and green plaid kilt fluttering about his bare knees. He was a broad-shouldered man with legs thick as tree trunks. A small knife tucked into the top of MacGregor’s heavy knit stocking reminded Ridley that a Scot was always prepared.

Ridley let out a soft groan. “Why the bloody hell did I agree to this charade?”

“Because you were too bloody stubborn to accept my offer of a loan.”

“Bugger me.”

“Thank you, no.”

When he’d been swimming in wealth, Ridley had halfheartedly engaged London’s ton in his quest for a proper wife, yet none had met his stringent requirements. Now that he’d lost everything he’d worked so hard to achieve, he was about to wed Lainie Margaret MacGregor, a Highland lass he’d never set eyes on until this very moment. He had to remind himself that the marriage would make him fabulously wealthy.

But at what price—my soul?

“I’ve no intention of mating with this poor excuse of a man,” Lainie MacGregor declares after reciting her wedding vows. But it’s too late. Far from her beloved Highlands, her fate is sealed.

My Thoughts:

4_75-star-rating

I thoroughly enjoyed this funny and poignant tale of a marriage between virtual strangers.
Our heroine is a woman who has left her homeland because of an incident that left her accused of a crime that could result in her hanging.
Our hero has agreed to a contracted marriage due to the dire straits he is in through no fault of his own.
This sometimes comical story is wonderfully written with characters who are well developed and who became beloved to this reader.

Although listed as book #3 in this series I feel it can easily be read as a standalone title.
If this were the first book of a new series I would anxiously await the next book as there are characters in this one that deserve their own story.
I would give this book 4.75 of 5 stars for storyline and characterization and 3.5 of 5 flames for heat. This wonderful book definitely has it’s heated moments.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book from the publisher through netgalley to read and review. This in no way affected my opinion.
