On the cusp of her first London season, Miss Madeline Gracechurch was shyly pretty and talented with a drawing pencil, but hopelessly awkward with gentlemen. She was certain to be a dismal failure on the London marriage mart. So Maddie did what generations of shy, awkward young ladies have done: she invented a sweetheart.
A Scottish sweetheart. One who was handsome and honorable and devoted to her, but conveniently never around. Maddie poured her heart into writing the imaginary Captain MacKenzie letter after letter … and by pretending to be devastated when he was (not really) killed in battle, she managed to avoid the pressures of London society entirely.
Until years later, when this kilted Highland lover of her imaginings shows up in the flesh. The real Captain Logan MacKenzie arrives on her doorstep—handsome as anything, but not entirely honorable. He’s wounded, jaded, in possession of her letters… and ready to make good on every promise Maddie never expected to keep.

This book exemplifies what I enjoy so much about modern historical romances, as opposed to those of the mid-twentieth century. Most of the story is set in 1817. The romance is a forced-marriage plot between an English woman who now owns a Highland castle and a Scot, Captain Logan MacKenzie. It's no...
I've already gotten on my soapbox about modern characters in historicals this week, so I'm just going to say, if you want to write a contemporary, feel free to do so. Anyway, I ended up liking this one more than I was anticipating, I've not had luck with this series previously. What sold it for me w...
Stayed up way too late (or is that too early) reading this because the spouse watched 2/3 of the LOTR trilogy. I didn't feel like sitting up, and was feeling guilty about not reading over the past couple of weeks. So, I finished it. So much wasted potential. It could have been funny - it wasn't. H...
