John is bewitched by the masked woman and thinks about her constantly. He has no idea who she is until 10 months later Gilly returns and immediately John knows who his masked lady is. But Gilly is not for the likes of him, a disowned, disgraced, self proclaimed rogue and rascal. So why does it hurt so much to learn she is only staying for a few days before heading off to marry? John lets her know that he knows who she is and what she did, but he keeps her secret safe. Not that anyone would believe him anyway, Gillian is too shy, too timid and too innocent to do such a thing!
When Fia asks John to escort Gilly to her intended and to stand in for her father and give away the bride, John desperately wants to refuse, but Fia will not take no for an answer. Determined to keep his distance and to ignore the temptation she presents, John tries to keep her at an arm's length. But having tasted boldness, Gillian is not willing to walk away from what could be the adventure of a lifetime.
And an adventure she will have! Within days of setting out, their party is attacked and Gillian is taken captive along with John. They barely escape with their lives and finally give in to the pull between them. John sees a side of Gillian that no one has ever seen and he shares things with her that no other living soul knows. Gillian believes that she has found her true love, but John is not as convinced, he knows he loves her, but has nothing to offer. He is sure she will be fine without him and will soon forget him.
When they are found the next morning, John begins to back away and as the story of Gilly's escape grows, so does their traveling party making any chance to talk privately impossible. But Gilly knows what she wants and what has to be done, but can she get John to agree?
This was a fast paced story with a lot of action, some laughs, some tears, villains that will not stay vanquished, great secondary characters, a couple of steamy love scenes and finally a very hard won HEA.
This book is part of the Highland Fair Tale series, but could easily be read as a stand alone. FYI - if you read this book and liked her sister Meggie, her story is already available in the Christmas in Kilts Anthology!

But Gillian goes home and when no suitor ask for her hand, her father betrotheds her to an old friend of his, a man some years older that himself. And so Gilly is off a again to her brother in law’s keep where he is to escort her to her wedding but when he delayed at sea, the task falls to John instead. Who when he sees Gilly again immediately recognizes her for the woman he kissed and has dreamed and yearned for since.
I absolutely loved this story. Beautifully written and poignant, the love that grows between Gillian & John was the sweetest ever and had me crying at times. Both Gilly and John’s characters were stellar. John has a reputation, quite unfounded for, as a womanizer even though he carefully keeps his liaisons limited to widows looking for a no strings affair. Both he & Gilly foray into the woods to hunt under the cover of the dark and gift their bounty to the needy anonymously. Gilly stumbles across him one night and that was one of the things that made her realize that there was so much more to the man than his reputation.
Disowned by his father, framed for something that was not his fault, John is amazingly honorable. He tries to keep away from Gilly, knowing their chemistry is mutual, thinking himself unworthy of her with no lands, or title.
The story gets more and more interesting (not to say touching) as it develops; Gilly becomes quite the heroine after they are attacked during their journey and soon has suitors begging & challenging for her hand. John has his work cut out for him to win her but all the while, he remains a man of integrity (her sisters offer to help him cheat!).
