My head was turned when I saw this cover. I absolutely love the pinks and purples in the cover and immediately wanted to know more.
The title definitely sounded like a typical romance title so I obviously knew that this was going to be a romance novel, but I just really loved the cover and how the woman was placed and that there was no man on the cover, I wondered if this would be a bit of a different romance than I was expecting.
Not to mention the male love interests name wasn’t something saucy like ‘Fabian’…..his name is Hamish. Talk about the least sexiest name out there. So both of these things really made me interested in reading this one. While I couldn’t fit it into my summer reading, I am hoping to squeeze it in this fall. Today though I have all the details here for you to check out!
A reserved debutante and a former soldier make an unlikely but fated match as they hasten for the Isle of Skye.
Orphaned heiress Olivia de Vere should have the world–or at least the men of the ton–at her feet. But when she’s thrown out of a young ladies’ academy, Olivia doubts she’ll ever find someone who will love her, rather than her bank account. To make matters worse, her dissolute cousin Felix is determined to marry her against her wishes. A virtual prisoner in her guardians’ London townhouse, Olivia can’t help but develop a tendre for her neighbor, a handsome Scottish marquess.
Battle-scarred in more ways than one, Hamish MacQueen, Lord Sleat, has braved many dangers in life. But nothing has quite prepared him for the shock of having a young child dumped on his doorstep, with a note claiming she’s his daughter. Just in the nick of time his pretty neighbor appears, offering to act as a nursemaid for the young girl on their journey to his estate in Scotland. He suspects she has her own reasons for wanting to flee the country…
The close traveling quarters leads to a fierce attraction between Olivia and Hamish that seems impossible to resist. But when ghosts from the past and monsters from the present threaten to tear them apart, will their unlikely love survive? (summary from Goodreads)
