The novel centers around Lady Janet Fraser, once the king’s mistress and now a widow, Sir Lachlan, known as a fierce warrior and called The Highland Beast, but who secretly wishes nothing more than to serve his mistress, and Lady Marjorie, a shy virgin raised in a convent who grows in confidence as the story progresses. I dearly loved all three of these characters, each who have a unique voice and character arc, and who all struggle with aspects of themselves and who ultimately find that they are best together.
The plot itself is well-paced. The romantic arc of the characters is always at the fore and I read the entire story in nearly one sitting, wanting to know how they came together and worked everything out. There is also enough outer conflict, with jealous ex-lovers, terrible men, carriage attacks, and court intrigue to ensure the feeling that these very real characters are also dealing with a very real, large, and sometimes terrible world. I was extremely pleased that the culmination of the plot required all three main characters as part of the solution.
This is a high heat novel, and the sex scenes are varied and creative. They have their own story to tell, which is something I look for in an erotic romance. The scenes move from f/f and f/m to f/f/m as the relationship progresses. Enthusiastic verbal consent is present in all scenes, and open communication is encouraged between the participants. I greatly appreciated Lady Jane taking command of her lovers--a dominant woman is catnip for me—this coupled with Lady Marjorie’s willingness to learn and Lachlan’s desire and love for both women warmed me to the core.
I highly recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys a hot historical read with excellent characterization and a rollicking plot, and I’d gladly read a hundred more novels like this.
**I received an ARC from the publisher through netgalley, all opinions in the review are my own**
The three main characters were extremely well-developed due to the author's ability to write such fantastic inner dialogue that I not only saw but 'felt' every emotion. Lady Janet is a queen in her own right and a perfect teacher to the more submissive Marjorie and Lachlan. Seeing Marjorie's sexual awakening at the hands of her two lovers was wonderful and quite steamy! And Lachlan...well, I might be in love. It was so sweet he was happiest when he was either holding his two ladies or being petted by them. Even though he's a beast on the battlefield, he shows such a sweet vulnerability which I think helped cement the threesome's connection not just sexually, but eventually down the road to love.
I have the warm and fuzzies now, which is always how you want to feel after reading a great book. A truly enjoyable read that will make you smile and steam up your tablet!
Felt like the bond for Lachlan was stronger with Janet than for Marjorie. He has been in love with her and lusting after her for years versus with Marjorie, he felt interest in but it never felt like the same level as he did with Janet. He also wants a woman who can dominate him and that is not Marjorie, she's more of a sub both in and out of the bed.
For Marjorie, it felt like she had a stronger bond with Janet, though I would say she seemed more interested in being with Lachlan but because of Lachlan and Janet's bond, she never got to get as close to Lachlan even though they end up marrying each other in the end. The marriage felt like something Marjorie wanted but Lachlan did mostly to please Janet.
As for Janet, I would say she is the one who truly loved both equally. They are both subs who want to please her and do whatever she wants so really they were a perfect match for her.
Each of the characters, Marjorie, Janet, and, Lachlan have all been well-written and in a way that a relationship between the three makes sense. They each have their own agency and desires and watching them all fall in love is a thing of beauty. That paired with the lush historical surroundings that Nicola Davidson paints is in a word, breathtaking. I would be remiss if I didn't include how absolutely steamy this book is. There was romantic scenes between all of the pairings and the sensuality leads into a deep and bonding love. Honestly, this book was everything I wanted and more.
