This book was okay. I liked the idea of the book but I had a hard time connecting with the main characters. Elise was married and widowed at a very young age. Since then she has protected herself by playing the part of a heartless flirt. Then her sister ends up falling for a Scotsman who leaves her pregnant, then she dies in childbirth. Elise is left with trying to find a way to tell his family about the baby. This worries her a lot because her sister had nothing good to say about the family. When she meets Colin, the baby's uncle, she is not impressed by him at all. She finds him crude and rude, but is also drawn to him. She spends most of the book trying to tell him about the baby, but only telling bits at a time which get she into trouble with him. I know she is young, but I really wanted to smack her at times. Colin was definitely living up to his reputation as a barbarian. He kept giving her orders, not listening when she tried to tell him things, and generally being a butthead. There were occasional glimpses of a nice guy, but then he'd turn around and be an ass again. Perhaps if the author had included his point of view and thoughts his actions might have been understandable, but most of the time he just seemed mean. The last few chapters were the best, but even the resolution wasn't completely satisfying with Colin going from ass to lover in just a few pages. I preferred the maid, Daisy, and Colin's servant, Miles, as characters. ( )

I found England boring. Once I got into Scotland, the action and romance seemed to pickup. I like Jackie Ivie as an author but this book had me swinging back and forth on who was doing what and feeling what to whom.
FAVORITE PART - when Colin first started breaking away at Elise's snobby ways
LEAST FAVORITE PART - harsh treatment of Elise when she was first thought to have a son
YOU WILL LIKE THIS BOOK IF: you enjoy seeing two people wrestle for love; you enjoy reading about things that happen as a result of keeping various secrets ( )
