What the Critics Say

"Burrowes is superb at creating connections that feel honest and real, and the side romances for Ian's siblings, treated with the same tenderness and care as her central pair, makes this tale even sweeter." (Publishers Weekly Starred Review)

SORRY BUT IT NEVER REALLY WARMED UP

Well, despite the promising cover, I have finally found a Highlander book that didn't wow me - it was soooo s l o w - and I was listening on double time!!

The story just progressed at such a slow tempo that I was thinking about skipping parts to get to the good bits but even if I had done that there were such few good bits to find I may have missed them altogether. There was sex but it left out most of the action, there were too many romances going on at the same time (4) which detracted from the main one which was sweet, tender but rolled on and on. GN used too many words to describe just one thing that I thought "just get there already".

Everything seemed to happen in the last 2/3 chapters so, if you are tempted, do yourselves a favor - listen to the first 2 chapters then skip to the last 3 chapters and you won't have missed much.

However, finishing on a 'positive' I loved RG's Scottish brogue which saved the book for me and awarded it a 3 star listen.

Worth a credit? No and I must try not to buy any of her next ones in the series.

- CAROLYN "I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again"

Loved It - awesome!

I am absolutely in love with Ian McGregor! What a wonderful character and premise for another of Grace Burrowes impeccable and exciting books. This Victorian era Scottish Highland adventure is just the ticket for 10 hours of a sensual romance and high adventure to listen to.

Ian MacGregor as the acting laird of his clan and Earl of Balfour. Ian has the duty of saving his clan from complete ruin by marrying an heiress in order to keep the clan afloat. To that end he invites a wealthy English family to his castle so he can woo the eldest daughter Genie, a rather bored young miss. However, Ian can’t help but notice Genie’s penniless cousin Augusta Merrick whose wit, intelligence and understanding of his situation quite endears her to him.

Try as he might Ian seems to be getting no where in his wooing of Genie and in the meantime he is growing more and more fonder of Augusta. However, after several accidents start befalling Augusta, it spurs Ian’s protective instincts and force him to take notice of what really seems to be going on.

Right from the very beginning one sees that Ian is more deserving of love from someone like Augusta than have to spend the rest of his life with another who cold care less for him or his clan. When Genie begins to avoid Ian as much as possible, Augusta is the one who tries to help Ian, even though it was breaking her own heart in trying to hook him up with her cousin.

Lots of hijinks go on in this deeply involved tale and with characters you will love and those you’s like gone! Ms. Burrowes fills the pages with so many characters, each having a little bit of a story of their own. Ian’s brothers, sister, and precocious niece are a total delight and make perfect use of filling the pages with such depth the reader will feel like part of this family and drama. No doubt about it - this is one more series by the estimable author Grace Burrowes I will be following. Only one word describes Ms. Burrowes - AWESOME!!
