“Only for the Romance fanatic. Simplistic plot. Emotion and motive descriptions were overdone, not allowing the reader to infer one thing from dialog or even the previous sentence.”see full review » see other reviews »
“I just finished re-reading this book - It is one of my favorite Julie Garwood books. I love that Alec does not give his new bride any credit for being capable - but hat she is just an English woman - Love it when he learns what she can do.”Lisa Ludwig wrote this review 10 days ago.

“I am torn between 3 and 4 stars on this one. Its not that I didn't really like it, just struggled a bit with the circular issues. Realized with the ending that it all comes full circle and all "issues" were necessary. I am just one of those people that got frustrated with Lucy and Ethel and the Seinfeld crew... I am of the mind.. Just don't do stupid things.
I am looking forward to the next book in this series.”

“Set in the Scottish Highlands for the most part the story is about an English woman named Jamie and the head of the Kincaid clan Alec. Alec and his good friend Daniel Ferguson are ordered by the Scottish King to marry English noblewomen and the nobleman whose daughters are up for grabs is Baron Jamison.
Jamie, his youngest is not his biological child but that child his late wife was pregnant with when she married him, she is also the unofficial mistress of the household overseeing everything from food preparations to household repairs.
Alec is the head of the Kincaid clan shrouded in mystery and gossip due to the alleged suicide of his first wife Helena. As is typical in such stories he is huge, with long dark red hair and brown eyes, while she is dainty with long dark hair and deep blue eyes.
As the story progresses we witness Jamie’s adjustment to the Scottish way of life and the clans adjustment to her, follow the mystery of the killer. 3.5/5 – for a romance it was quite interesting, funny and I appreciated the fact that Alec was not as brazen and aggressive as the hero’s usually are and while Jamie was stubborn and such it was not irrational stubbornness.
“This is a great story! I don't know why I wasn't interested in historical romances from the beginning--I absolutely enjoy reading them! Garwood tells an interesting story that I didn't want to put down once I started reading it. I finished the book within a day's time--there is plenty of humor, romance and some thrills in this story and if you're a fan of Julie Garwood, or historical romances in general, than I definitely recommend this story.”MandyLou wrote this review Monday, August 6, 2012.

“I wish I could give half stars because this is really a 2.5 star book. While I enjoyed the beginning of this book the heroine got tiring, I kept waiting for her to catch on because she seemed smart enough. She never did and by the time I was 3/4 of the way through the book I wanted to chock the crap out of her myself. This was the first Julie Garwood book that I have read. I might try another one after a while.”DramaQueenLucy wrote this review Saturday, July 7, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
