Time is ticking for Georgina Bayard and life as she knows it is slowly winding to a halt. Appropriate enough for the heiress of the famous Bayard clock dynasty, but Georgina is determined to stay the hand of fate and take control of her own fortune. With no time at all before the bank is to foreclose on everything she owns, she has decided that her only hope of saving her home, and with it her heritage, is to marry into wealth, even if it means wheedling a proposal out of the short, balding John Cabot. Eachann McLachlan is a man used to taking what he wants. Devilishly handsome and powerfully built, he comes to the conclusion that it's Georgina he wants after a chance encounter has her mistaking him for a delivery man while she orders him to get to work. After overhearing her talking to herself about wanting to get married, Eachann whisks her off to his Highland Castle on a remote island off the coast of Maine, set on making her his bride. And just for good measure he includes a serenely beautiful Amy Emerson as a gift to his older brother, Cullum. The brides are less than ecstatic. As a matter of fact, Georgina causes such a ruckus, Cullum is certain the shrieking hoyden will bring the entire household down around their ears before the fog lifts enough to see them back to the mainland. Still, he is haunted by the pain and loneliness he sees in the eyes of the other young lass. Content with his resolve to remain unmarried, Cullum fights his attraction to Amy and her gentle ways. By the time the fog finally dissipates enough to see their way clearly, Amy and Georgina have spent two full weeks on the MacLachlan island, and each has grudgingly gained a new respect for the men that occupy the land. Amy watches as Georgina struggles with the man she calls, MacOaf, yet she also sees her risk her life to save Eachlann's precocious six-year old daughter. The child and her brother appear forlorn having lost their mother in an accident as they grapple for their father's attention. Amy also feels the tenderness that Cullum shows her and her lonely heart is hungry for the feel of his soothing touch. Upon leaving the island, both women are lost in thought, knowing that the brief time they've spent with the MacLachlan's has forever changed them. Georgina and Amy try to ignore the sense of loss threatening to overwhelm them as their hearts cry out for the matchless love they leave behind. Few books I've read have been as satisfying as this one! With a stitch of laughter and a hint of tears, Jill Barnett confidently presents simultaneous love stories that weave together seamlessly, resulting in one beautiful, multi-faceted tapestry of words. Charming and uproariously funny! Jill Barnett writes straight from the heart. It's impossible not to get Carried Away with this book!Lori Wright -- Copyright © 1994-97 Literary Times, Inc.

More About the Author

I am a native Californian, a baby boomer who grew up in a very idyllic place at a very idyllic time--on the coast of Southern California in the 60's, although I spent many childhood summers before that on my grandparents' farm in Texas.

So I'm a West Coast girl raised by Southern parents, who grew up in a place where you spent your free time playing volleyball on the beach and weekends dancing to local bands like Beach Boys and the Righteous Brothers.

My husband and I met in high school, and I never knew I wanted to be a writer until I was in my thirties and back in college again. I had been an art major the first time around--it was the 60's--quit to make some kind of mark in the world, but I got married instead.

My love of history and reading and art all came together for me when I quit school again, after working toward my history degree and then becoming a mother--something we were told couldn't happen. (The child not the degree.) So with the miracle gift of my daughter, came a new career for me.

I knew then I wanted to write a book, had an idea and more importantly a vision of the kind of stories I wanted to tell. I told myself I could always go back to school.

Funny thing the way life works. Almost two years to the day I quit school, I sold my first book on 50 pages to Pocket Books, a division of Simon and Schuster. That was over 22 years ago and many books later.

So the road I traveled to become an author had many twists and turns, joys and disappointments. Yet I'm doing something I really love. In so many ways I'm a very lucky woman.

This book was absolutely hilarious, while at the same time tender and touching. I am a new reader of Ms. Barnett's, and she has found a new fan. Her ability to combine romance with such incredibly witty dialogue is fantastic! Definately a book worth reading!

Heiress Georgina Bayard has one last chance to save her home and the Bayard clock dynasty from foreclosure. She must marry a wealthy man, and unfortunately, the one she must manipulate a proposal out of is short and bald. So she's using the last of her money to throw a huge house party to secure her proposal.
Young, gentle Amy Emerson is attending that party, as well as her fiancé. She finds out rather publicly he's only interested in her money. Brokenhearted and humiliated, she breaks off their engagement.
Eachann McLachlan, tall, blonde and a bit wild, lives at Highland Castle with his older brother, Cullum, who is his polar opposite. Cullum is dark, calm, meticulous, and has resolved to remain unmarried. The brothers are descendents of a Highlands clan who were forced to flee Scotland, and now reside together on this remote and isolated island off the coast of Maine.
Eachann's two young children have just been expelled from school, and are returning to live with him and Cullum. Eachann decides he must marry in order to have a wife to raise his children. During Georgina's house party, he overhears her say she must marry, so he impulsively kidnaps her to be his bride. Eachann also witnessed Amy's misery, and decides to bring her along against her will, as the bride for Cullum.
Once back on the island, Georgina is angry, screaming in protest, and tries repeatedly to escape. But between Eachann, who she refers to as "McOaf", and the pea soup fog covering the whole island, she's stuck with her captor. Amy handles the situation quietly while nursing her broken heart. Cullum finds himself attracted to Amy, but valiantly tries to fight his feelings.

First let me say that I enjoyed IMAGINE by Jill Barnett. The anti-hero, strong heroine and humor enchanted me until the end. So when I picked up CARRIED AWAY I expected the same. The novelty of one brother kidnapping two ladies so they would each have a wife attracted me.

CARRIED AWAY was another island adventure. Calum and Eachann Maclachlan could not be more different from one another. Calum liked things clean and orderly. Eachann was a slob, to put it mildly. Both handsome in their own way, Calum was the serious one. He needed glasses to see and he was not as tall as his younger brother. Eachann did things on the spur of the moment. Consequences were not thought of until the event had a fall-out. The house they lived in on a island off of Maine was split down the middle to avoid problems among the two. They got along. Until now.

Eachann had to retrieve his two young children from the mainland. They were thrown out of the latest and last boarding school that had accepted them. Kirsty, seven, and Graham, eight, had reached the headmistess' last bit of patience. They were motherless and wanted to be with their father so they drew attention to themselves. And not in a good way.

On his way back to his home Eachann thought of an answer to his problems. He would marry Georgina Bayard, 'George', someone he had just met. It would ease his loneliness and he would have a mother to take care of his children. He also found another woman, Amy Emerson, for his brother. But oh, those, consequences.

Now to my three star rating; Eachann came off as somewhat stupid. The children had an adult vocabulary and the dialog between Kirsty and her father was not something I would have expected from a seven year old.
