Elizabeth St. Claire has always been hard to please. Dreaming solely of Highlander men her whole life, no prancing London Lord can stand a chance at winning her heart…
… But perhaps a Scotsman can.
Elizabeth watches intrigued as the Highlander of her dreams, a Scotsman named Hamish Robb, arrives to oversee her season at the behest of her cousin, the Duke of Caithness. Elizabeth doesn’t hide her feelings for the striking Scot. But Hamish, determined to obey his order to protect the St. Claire sisters, steadfastly rejects her every seducing lure.
Believing that the debutante Elizabeth deserves a better, wealthier man, Hamish continues to turn away from her affection, even though he doesn’t exactly want to. Can this Highlander Scot resist the tempting seductress’ attempts to win his heart?
Review: I was sitting in my comfy chair reading and I couldn’t figure out why the characters in the story sounded so familiar. Here I was not realizing I had read the first two books in the series somehow missed the third and found this one. I canna just pick one and say that it is a favorite because although these books can and do stand-alone they also fit snugly together making them something to read and enjoy.
Hamish and Elizabeth were meant to be together right from the start. Ms. York once again gave us characters that were easy to like. Ms. York gave us family instead of characters in a story. This story gives us four sisters being introduced to London society thanks to their newfound cousin who happens to have grown up without family. Since he’s found his cousins, he is only too happy to finance their debut. When it comes time to start the season he doesn’t want to leave his wife as she is close to delivering. So he sends two other Scottish men to watch over the girls.
As this is really about the romance between Hamish (one of the Highlanders sent and really HOT) and Elizabeth. Believe me when I say they had a chemistry that flew off the pages but Hamish tried hard to hold back but, he finally…Oops I almost spoiled it for you. This story is also about the other sisters. By the end of the book all the girls found someone just right for them and none were from London society. Well I take that back one was. Three got…no can’t tell it might spoil it again for you. I guess I can say that you may just have to read this story for yourself.
I have to say that there is a lot that goes on in within this story yet I found it easy to follow and with each twist and turn I fell in love with the characters that made not only their debut in London but in my heart as well. I laughed out loud, I fell in love. The love scenes were hot, yet not overdone. They were sensuous…
You might want to also pick up the other three in this series and settle in for a magical read. You will love the romance, the adventures, the Highlanders and perhaps even the Londoners. Along with all the twists and turns…Well let’s just say if you haven’t read Ms. York’s books before you may find a new favorite author.
I really need to find me a Highlander.
