I'm not surprised at all that this book has been among 100 best romance books for years.
It's a very humorous story about a Scottish laird who is forced to marry with an Englishwoman. Alec and Jamie were both wonderful characters. Sure, Jamie was almost too perfect, but Julie Garwood used her few flaws to make me laugh all the time. I loved her banter with Alec and the way her husband tried to make her angry, when he saw her sad or worried, was hilarious.
The story also had a little bit of suspense and danger. But actually it's an amazing "feel good" book and it just made me happy.
