Trouble is no match for a lady of the extended Worthington family –
except when it comes in the form of a most irresistible gentleman . . .
Lady Charlotte Carpenter’s brother-in-law has put an infamous brothel owner out of business—yet it is Charlotte who suffers the consequences. Abducted by thugs and held at an inn, she is plotting her escape when she’s suddenly rescued by a dashing gentleman. Only afterward does she realize she’s seen him before—with two courtesans! Unwilling to tarry with such a man, Charlotte makes her second escape. But it is too late to repair her reputation . . .
A known gossip has spied Charlotte’s movements, and his report is speeding through the rumor mill. Soon, everyone knows that Charlotte spent the night with Constantine, Marquis of Kenilworth. And everyone agrees the only answer is marriage—including Constantine himself, his overjoyed mother—and his mistress! But Charlotte’s abductors aren’t finished with her yet. Now Constantine will do anything to protect the spirited woman he loves and win her heart . . .

I love this series. It is full of humor, a bit of danger and romance.
Charlotte is a bit adventurous. In spite of her warnings to the contrary she leaves her home to simply cross the street to the second residence and promptly is abducted by miscreants who work for the infamous Madame who Charlotte’s brother-in-law put out of business. Revenge is what the woman is after. She intends I’ll will against Charlotte.
Constantine wants no part of marriage but when he sees the abduction occur he follows to assist the young lady.
His help turns to what could easily be a scandal so he offers marriage.
When Charlotte discovers her savior’s identity she wants no part of the scoundrel.
Can what starts as a rescue, turning to a scandalous occurrence end in love?
I gave this delightful book 4.5 of 5.0 stars for storyline and character development and a sensual rating of 3 of 5 flames. The attraction that ensues finally turns to intimacy.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this title from the publisher via NetGalley to read.
This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Love touched them. Treachery divided them. One night of passion binds them.
Betrayed by her father, Marsaili Campbell risks her life to recover what he has stolen from her. But when she’s kidnapped and wagered away, she has no one to help her escape other than the very man she’s spent the past three years trying to forget—Highland warrior Callum Grant. She once gave her heart and her innocence to the handsome Scot, only to regret her naive decisions. Still, with more enemies than she can battle alone, she needs an ally, even if she must hide the truth of her circumstances from him.
Laird Callum Grant thrust his clan into war for the love of a woman, only to lose her forever. But when the woman he believed dead appears at his clan’s tourney in dire trouble, there’s no denying Marsaili has been alive all this time. With his clan weakened from the years of raids and battles, however, he cannot afford to do anything that would ruin the betrothal he’s made to secure his clan’s future. Yet he can’t turn away from the woman who once beguiled him body and soul.
As Callum and Marsaili embark on a dangerous journey, each touch, each look, each clash of wills reignites their desire in an all-consuming inferno. But the secret Marsaili keeps and the duty that shackles Callum are threatening to destroy them. That is, unless they can learn that love, once truly given, is unbreakable.
I loved this latest book in the Highlander Vows, Entangled Hearts series.
Filled with treachery, danger and a second chance at love this book is well written and totally engrossing.
Callum and Marsaili’s story is a combination of elements that make it virtually impossible to put down. It is one for the keeper shelf.
Laird Callum Grant thinks the only woman he has ever loved is dead, but is that her at his clan’s tourney? He can’t have Marsaili now because he must marry another to secure his clan’s safety. Will her need for help be Callum’s downfall?
Marsaili Campbell has spent the last three years a captive, all the while trying to forget Callum Grant. Now he is the only one who can save her.
Now that they are thrown together will it lead to more than a reunion in spirit?
I gave this well developed tale 4.5 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 3.75 of 5.0 flames. The heat between these two is palpable and the intimacy one of a revisited passion.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book from the author to read and review. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.
