About the Author

Sophie Jordan grew up on a pecan farm in the Texas hill country, where she wove fantasies of dragons, warriors, and princesses. A former high school English teacher, she's also the New York Times bestselling author of Avon historical romances and the Firelight series. She now lives in Houston with her family. When she's not writing, she spends her time overloading on caffeine (lattes and Diet cherry Coke preferred), talking plotlines with anyone who will listen (including her kids), and cramming her DVR with true-crime and reality-TV shows.

STORY BRIEF:
Astrid's father arranged her marriage to Bertram. Bertram spent her dowry then abandoned her with no money to live on. Astrid's parents were dead. Astrid hears that Bertram is in Scotland posing as someone else planning to marry an heiress. Astrid travels to Scotland to try to stop him. Along the way she meets Griffin. Highwaymen and feuding clans cause danger for them. Griffin was raised in Texas and came to Scotland to investigate something his mother told him on her deathbed.

REVIEWER'S OPINION:
I had trouble liking the heroine Astrid. She was never loved by her parents or husband, so she maintains a cold façade to everyone. Even after Griffin awakens her passionate side, she repeatedly returns to her cold and distant manner. Her coldness causes fights and other conflicts. She repeatedly causes trouble for herself by saying things based on stupid reasoning, for example: she is traveling with Griffin, and they are surrounded by a group of potential bad guys. Griffin tells the bad guys they are married so the men will leave her alone. She stupidly says "we are not married." Another example of poor judgment: a couple is in love, but Astrid takes action and/or tries to influence the girl marry someone else to make the relatives happy. This happens twice, with two different couples. I'm guessing the point is that Astrid was never loved, so she doesn't know how to love or interact with others in a reasonable manner. Somehow, I didn't enjoy reading about her and her predicaments.

Griffin was a good hero: smart, strong, loving and helping others. The author did a nice job with the plot. It was good. The author has a nice voice.

I loved Sophie Jordan's other books but this one was a real struggle for me. The heroine was so unlikable for most of the story. She and the hero spent pretty much the entire book at odds with one another. It almost seemed as though they only got along in the middle of sex - 5 minutes after they were already fighting again. I found myself just wanting the story to be over with. I didn't see their love grow and maybe some of their "soul sharing" should have come earlier so the reader might believe they could actually like one another. I couldn't feel emotion for them or between them at all (the opposite is true for Jordan's last book, which was wonderful). This heroine was so stiff backed so much of the story I found myself thinking had I been her husband, I may have run away too. I felt as though I didn't know the hero well enough either - so I could truly care about his fate. It all just didn't feel genuine - the relationship and the story. 2.5 Stars

I read another book by this author that I enjoyed, so I tried this one. Despite other readers' high praise, I found the book long, boring and ridiculous. I don't want to give the plot away, so I'll just say that the heroine is whiney, the hero is moody and the reasons they fight their attraction for each other are so stupid it's insulting. Plus, I have read newspaper articles with more chemistry. The author fails to develop any of the other characters. Finally, the story is so weak and the background so disjointed, it feels like she made it up as she went along. Pass on it.

I have read other books by Sophie Jordan and enjoyed them. This one however was absolute torture to read. Astrid Derring featured in an earlier book was a screw-faced cold hearted woman married to a man who had little love or respect for her and the pressure of her station (a Duchess) did little to thaw her out or bring her any other relief from the responsibilities of a derelict, abusive husband and a bankrupt title.

Enter Griffin Shaw an American in search of his long lost relatives and when he happens upon Astrid and her maid in distress he rises to the occasion to aide them from a disastrous violation and end.

From the beginning, this book reeked! Big strong, handy Griffin couldn't fight his way out of a pillow fight. He is felled by a rock to the head during the rescue and not only captured once, but twice and then he could not make lemonade with lemonish Astrid who tried too damn hard to be miserable. Romance is supposed to offer the reader some sense of escapisim, but the escape I wanted was away from this book. Unfortunately, I have this nagging little crisis that occurs when I dump eight bucks on a book... I have to read it or die trying. And guess what... I may have preferred the die trying part.

The ending was rushed and somewhat ridiculous with a murder and rape being shrugged away and a wrong against her relative (Portia) from the previous book wiped away like bread crumbs from a piece of toast. The characters of Griffin's grandfathers were overly cartoonish and the fact that they acted like 6 year olds fighting over a toy had me rolling my eyes and begging to be put out of my misery.

Unfortunatley, when buying this book, I also purchased 2 more of her books strictly on the basis of the 4 stars other reviews on Amazon gave them. But Aaahhhh! I saved the receipt.
