    What a rollicking good read Well plotted, with many twists and turns, and characters with whom it is easy to identify this is romance with adventure Faultless writing and historical background, too, this book has it all.

    DNF.I d set this one aside so that I could finish reading Highland Surrender which was started on audio, but the narrator was atrocious, so I gave up and checked it out from the library to read instead When I finished HS and it was time to go back to this one after renewing the checkout on this one for an additional three weeks , I just couldn t bring myself to open it up again So this one goes on the DNF list and I m moving on to something else.Aside from the author s penchant for antiquated language, I was very turned off in the beginning of the book by the first chapter, which name drops at least a dozen characters I don t know or care anything about Once again, I managed to pick up a book that s part of a series without realizing it The story of this book actually starts in the second chapter And while it seemed interesting, shortly after the hero and heroine meet, he goes off to the country and she gets kidnapped I have no reason at this point to care for either of them or to be concerned that they re now separated.He, being our hero, of course goes after her And that s where the story really lost me The setup is so implausible that I just couldn t bring myself to go to the extreme effort that suspending disbelief was going to take for me to get back into the story.So I gave up on it at the 39% mark.

    A lovely historical romance novel It had suspense, tension and conflict of emotions and intentions A fast read of young adult content, if you know what I mean, but still a pleasure to flip through I will have to keep Mary Nichols on the list of to read authors.
