I have to say that I loved Elissa's character. She is very brave, stubborn and sassy. She is stubborn so its very hard for her to accept that the past is the past, and move on. Or the fact that not all Englishmen are horrible, even if their name or reputation implies different. Damien, has his heart set on one thing and one thing only. Okay well two. Misterly Castle is all he has ever wanted and he finally is making it a home when things really go astray. And the second thing, is Elissa even though that shouldn't happen. He defied the king by not sending her away, but he did follow the kings orders by not allowing Elissa and Tavis Gordon to marry. If he had just sent word to the king about that fact, maybe some things might not have happened-then again things could have been worse than they were. Bring in Kimbra, Damien's bride-to-be. A real bitch, extremely spoiled and rude. I just couldn't believe Damien put up with her and her attitude as long as he did, not after...
Just finished it on the Fourth and what a great surprise freebie! The book has brief tidbits of history enough to tie in the framework of the story and the romance, clan hostilities and the merging of Eng/Scot coming together after Culloden was what it was about for the most part. Wasn't sure about the H/H at first seemed a stretch but she finally came around - in a way. Did not expect some of the turns at the end but was glad that I didn't stop reading because I presumed to know how it would end, sometimes I do that, oops. This was entertaining and descriptive the whole time and I will look into more Connie Mason books in the future.
Once again I love getting free books! If it weren't for them, I never would've found this author. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I liked that a Scottish lass and a battle-hardened Englishman were paired together. Then being the time when England and Scotland were at war, this pair couldn't come at a greater time. What started as duty turns into a fulfilling love story that was worth fighting for.
