From beginning to end, this novel is absolutely marvellous! When Yvette flees Boston to escape her stepbrother, Edgar, and his vicious attacks, she hopes to contact her solicitor and obtain her fortune. Instead, as soon as she is on English soil, she finds herself being followed and chased, only to be rescued by a stranger, a stranger with familiar eyes; the eyes from her dreams. Desperate to remain out of Edgar's grasp, Yvette finds herself under the protection of Ewan McTavish, the man of her dreams. However as events occur that require a seemingly fictitious betrothal and then marriage, Yvette finds herself in a true marriage based on Scottish Law. Can Yvette look past her anger and sense of betrayal and see the love and devotion that Ewan has for her?
I found this novel by Collette Cameron to be a must read! Once I picked it up, I couldn't put it down. It has every element I've come to crave in a historical romance: passion, drama, suspense, and romance. Yvette's determined, yet understanding nature makes her truly lovable, and Ewan's traditional Scottish protective and passionate nature makes his character simply outstanding. As Ewan was desperately trying to protect Yvette from the people who wished to harm her, I couldn't help but admire the sense of kinship and camaraderie that Ms. Cameron was able to portray, as 200 of Ewan's clansmen showed up to a public house to help escort Yvette to the safety of Ewan's estate. A remarkably well written novel by Ms. Cameron and I look forward to reading many more, especially the other novels in this series, The Viscount's Vow, Vangie and Ian's story and The Earl's Enticement, Adaira and Rory's story.
