The Bachelorette (Lady Jane Lennox) must marry by Christmas Eve or she will lose her inheritance. Six suitors gather at Bellhaven Castle, and within two weeks Lady Jane must decide on which one to marry. The men are given challenges to help Lady Jane in her decision making, and to add to the plot there is a villain trying to kill Lady Jane before she can make her selection.
Honestly I'm a little conflicted on how to rate this book. Technically the writing was very good, but for some reason I never felt a connection to any of the characters. I think the problem was the sheer number of "heroes" in the story. I felt like a juggler trying to keep my eyes on 6 balls at once. The beginning of the story introduces the six different men that will be competing for Lady Jane's hand in marriage. All the men (except for one) where described as handsome, courageous, and very eager to marry Jane. In fact they were all so perfect I had a hard time keeping them straight and remembering who was who. Three of the men had unique histories with Jane (so it was a little easy to remember them), but the three other men were kind of a blur of testosterone. To add to the confusion Jane seemed initially drawn to all of the men.
About midway through the book Jane's true love interest became clear, but at this point I had become disinterested in the romance, and was more engrossed in figuring out the identity of the villain.
So all-in-all an okay romance novel, but a few too many likable characters all vying for the reader's and Jane's attention. I wonder if all the hunky heroes will get their own books in the future.
Also: What happened to the puppy? I'm a little worried that she was never mentioned after the "incident".
Jane Lennox is about to get a surprise for Christmas and not one she was expecting - if she does not marry by Christmas Eve she will lose her inheritance of Bellhaven Castle! Six suitors will compete for her hand in marriage but who will the winner be - the charming stranger Colin Taylor; the concerned David Buchanan; the wrongly accused, Jules MacIntyre who would sacrifice his freedom for the heiress; her cold-hearted rake of a cousin Bryce MacCallister; the marriage-ready Hollister Cay or, her old flame Nicholas Kincaid whose affections were doused by Jane's late brother Jacob?
This witty and well-written romance is a great read with lots of character development and suspense. The very idea of a testosterone fuelled competition for the hand of the vulnerable Ms. Lennox is inspiring and exciting. It plays on our emotions and what we want the outcome to be. I look forward to seeing more of Gerri Russell's additions to the Highland Bachelor Series which adds a Scottish twist to romantic fiction in a new and seductive way.
I would also recommend 'The Royal Brotherhood series' by Sabrina Jeffries among others if you like Russell's style of romantic fiction. 5 Stars
I loved the characters in this novel. The panel of bachelors brought in to this story are all captivating and breathtaking in their own manner. I also appreciated how the main character isn’t perfect. She attempts to be who others want her to be rather than herself. That said, she is intrinsically a good person who wants what’s best for those around her. Watching her journey of self-discovery is priceless.
Overall, think the bachelorette with a historical & suspsenseful twist. Well worth the read any time of year.

Typical romance, but holds you not wanting to put it down. I like the under tone of high ethical and moral standards. Nice unexpected twists and turns.Published 12 months ago by Bonna Densmore
