A match made for mayhem. “I’ve no intention of mating with this poor excuse of a man,” Lainie MacGregor declares after reciting her wedding vows. But it’s too late. Far from her beloved Highlands, her fate is sealed. Ridley Malvern, Lord Caulfield, desperate for her dowry, agrees to marry a wealthy Scot’s daughter sight unseen. He is unaware his tantalizing bride is running from the law. Despite their sizzling attraction, all Lainie desires is to return to her clan. Attempting to make things right, Caulfield takes his wife back to the Highlands only to discover why her father sought the marriage—Lainie is wanted for murder. For her safekeeping, they must remain in England. Now Ridley needs to win her affections and prove that a wild Highland lass and an English lord, can find a love match, after all.
I really enjoyed this book. It was a page to be sure. I am new to this author and the series. The first 2 books in the series, The Seduction of Sarah Marks and Portrait of a Forbidden Lady are already on my to-be-read list. The story is fast paced, it's hilarious in parts and is well written. The characters are believable and they meshed very well.
Ridley Malvern could very well be my newest book boyfriend. He is handsome (of course), patient, intellectual, and HE READS TO HER!!.... An all around great guy. I absolutely fell in love with him.
Lainie MacGregor is a spitfire with a head on her shoulders. She's funny, talented, strong and determined.
I would recommend this book to anyone that loves Highland romances.
