Edmund MacGregor will do anything to save Scotland from English rule-even kidnap Lady Amelia Bell for ransom. As the daughter of a duke and the chancellor's betrothed, she's the perfect pawn in this game. But from the moment he first lays eyes on his spirited captive, he can't resist stealing a kiss . . .


Lady Amelia's duty is to marry well, but that hasn't stopped her from fantasizing about true love. So when a sexy Scot appears in her home, she's beguiled. When he kidnaps her, she's furious. Yet as Edmund introduces her to a world of passion beyond her wildest dreams, can she leave her family behind for this handsome Highlander? And will Edmund risk the only true home he's ever known to capture the heart of this lovely lass?

My Review:

Beginning Babble-I have been lacking in the Highlander romance category lately. They are some of my favorites but the mood had not struck me.  


Heroine: Amelia-She was quite an interesting heroine. She seemed to be very placid and calm but she was like a duck on the water. Calm on the surface but beneath is a flurry of activity. She was also very loyal to her family which is something I really love to see.

Hero: Edmund- I loved him too. And for the most part, I am not even sure why. He was dreamy. In the same way that a character like Mr. Darcy is dreamy. He has a few moment of “Why did you do that?” but for the most part, he is a genuinely good dude. His presence just leapt off the page.  

Chemistry-I loved that they were so dedicated to their own causes,Amelia to her family and Edmund to Scottish independence, and remained dedicated to them even while falling in love. I find that quite often in romances, the hero and heroine start out with these strong beliefs but let them fall by the wayside when a pretty shows up. It wasn't the case here. Not even a little bit and I really loved that.

Chemistry Rating:

Ending Babble: I really liked this one quite a bit. I found the romance to be perfectly paced, the characters to be engaging and the storyline entertaining. I also adore Paula Quinn’s writing style. It’s engaging yet authentic.  I did have some moments towards the middle of the book where I felt my interest waning but I was quickly drawn back in—and I think it was caused by my oncoming illness.
