DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!
This book was terrible. It has tons of editing errors that are so bad, there are times when you can't understand what is happening. When you can understand, you wish you couldn't. The story is BORING and REPETATIVE. The characters are annoying. The heroine spends the entire book balling her eyes out. ("Tears streaming down her face", "Her tear streaked face", "choking on a sob", "swallowing a sob"....) She turns psycho and hides from her husband, because she thinks he is her dad who abused her as a child. The "hero" finally turns her over his knee, in front of everyone in the castle, and spanks her for misbehaving. This was his way of showing her that his discipline will not be as harsh as her dad's was. There was nothing "romantic" about this story.
Our hero, Grant Drummond returned to his home after learning of his father's murder and was determined to slay the man responsible. That raid led him to the castle of Gerald Blackstone, where he slaked his vengeance - then unbeknownst to him, kidnapped the man's daughter, Victoria (Tory) Blackstone, thinking her a servant of the manor.
On the that fateful night, Tory was attempting her own escape from the cruel father who detested her so much, he'd gone ahead and betrothed her to an equally vile man who'd already killed two of his wives. Determined to find true love she was thwarted in her escape by falling into the hands of a `dreaded Scot'. Sworn off of love, Grant would often in the coming days question his unusual decision in taking so lovely a captive - a captive who both exasperated him and was slowly but surely capturing his heart.
--- Written with an undeniable love of Scotland, and her history, this author gifts the reader with a passionate tale of love between two people who the fates graciously brought together. Tory was a seriously wounded young woman and the authors treatment of the healing love Grant brought into her life was positively brilliant. You'll laugh, you'll cry in this deeply moving, and fully robust tale of the many struggles towards happily ever after. This is a fantastic Scottish historical romance that fans of the genre should not miss!!!
I am eager to read this author's other works.
