After her father and brother disappeared, Lady Jane Lennox is managing Bellhaven Castle. Nonetheless, her aunt has invited six suitors to compete for the right to her hand - and to protect Bellhaven's towers of cool, pink-gray stone. Among the six is Nicholas Kincaid, the one-time object of Jane's affection. Two years ago, her brother banished Nicholas. A mere "sir," in want of title or land, Nicholas was not marriage material. Now, Nicholas will have the chance to compete in challenges of wit and skill, rather than heraldry. But against noble swordsmen, dancers, and charmers, can he possibly win back her heart? The six highland lairds could not ride sooner to the snowy bailey walls, as strange things keep happening to the family: a faulty carriage wheel, a loose step, high in a stone tower. Accidents, no doubt. But by Christmastide, Lady Jane will secure Bellhaven and choose a new love.

An OK read..
Yeah, it was a little cheesy and it did smack of the bachelorette but it was still kind of cute and silly. I do get tired af all the drama in all the romance novels all the time so this was sort of a nice change.
I did like all the players: Lady Margaret, Nicholas, Jane, Colin, David, Jules, Hollister and, eventually, Bryce.
And there was the mystery of who was trying to kill Jane. I KNOW that none of you readers can honestly say you saw that coming!
The only part I was really bothered by was that after Jane "slept" with Nicholas twice she still insisted on going on with the competition and left him wondering if she would choose him. I thought that was a little rediculous.
As to the narrator: I know a lot of you think Ms. Flosnik is "oh, so wonderful" but I can only see her as barely ok. She doesn't have much emotion when she reads and she kinda' sucks at the men's voices. They all sound alike and all gravelly when they talk. I don't mind that they all sound alike but I hate the gravelly sound she gives them. Maybe it's because it makes them all sound like old men. I'am glad that Justine Eyre is reading the next book.
