There is no other brief summary so here goes: Our h is the daughter of a Scottish laird and goes to London to meet Bonny Prince Charlie who is supposedly there to meet clandestinely with his followers. Unfortunately once she arrives in London her carriage is attacked and she is injured. She is arrested and in desperation uses the name of the Earl of Rothwell, who now owns her family's property in Scotland. Once she meets the 'foppish' Earl, our H, he doesn't allow her to leave his house or protection for various reasons. Our h is feisty and our H is delightfully strong and a perfect match for her. They end up travelling to Scotland to her family's property and he gets to see the conditions that she'd been telling him about. Along the way they are 'forced' into marriage (such a delightful part of the book), which they plan to have annulled once he returns to England. And so their adventures continue and there are a whole bunch of great secondary characters too. I loved the H's brother James and enjoyed his romance with another feisty character in the book.
For those readers who want steamy sex on every other page then this isn't the book for them but if you are like me and have a romantic, yet historical soul, you'll love it.
The biggest issue I had was that I could not believe Maggie tolerated Ned's controlling behavior... she was written too independent and free thinking.
I'm so glad I followed my "second" mind, because right before the half-way point of the book, I found myself enjoying my read immensely- even laughing out loud at all the things that happened on the way to and after the arrival at Maggie's home. I won't spoil it for anyone. Just know that you will have to be very, very patient while reading to get to the heart of Maggie and Rothwell's relationship... VERY patient. But, there are golden nuggets to be gleaned from this tale of romance, if you can stand the wait.
