Publisher's Summary

An indomitable governess...a brooding Highlander...a forbidden affair...
An ill-fated elopement cost English-born governess Bernadette Holly her reputation, her unsuitable lover, and any chance of a future match. She has nothing left to fear - not even the bitter, dangerously handsome Scot due to marry her young charge. Naive wallflower Avaline is terrified to wed Rabbie Mackenzie, but if he sends her home, she will be ruined. Bernadette's solution: convince Rabbie to get Avaline to cry off...while ignoring her own traitorous attraction to him.
A forced engagement to an Englishwoman is a hard pill for any Scot to swallow. It's even worse when the fiancée in question is a delicate, foolish young miss - unlike her spirited, quick-witted governess. Sparring with Bernadette brings passion and light back to Rabbie's life after the failed Jacobite uprising. His clan's future depends upon his match to another, but how can any Highlander forsake a love that stirs his heart and soul?

Almost quit

The middle became pretty tedious but the ending almost made up for it. Don’t like so many flashbacks with lost fiancées. Also don’t like men lethargically walking into weddings they don’t want. A little witty repartee would have saved it. A disappointment compared to the wicked Scot story. That one was fun.

Healing Power of Historical Highlands

Julia London really knows how to pull on a reader's heart strings! This is a story that will make you cry just a little near the end. Both of the main characters have suffered tragic losses of their first loves. Years later they still haven't learned to leave the past behind them and move on. Thankfully the chemistry is electric when they are together and they bring each other from the brink of despair.

There are many contemporary stories out there that have similar themes. It's refreshing to see the healing power of love revealed in a historical romance with a dashing (and obviously brooding) highlander.

Derek Perkins was amazing as usual with his varying unique vocalizations for each character. I can't wait for the next book by Julia London and narrated by Derek Perkins!
