I love Scottish historical romance. There's just something about the brooding men and feisty women. Bride of Blackness Castle sounded like just my kind of story. While I did enjoy the story, it was not as engaging as I had hoped. Robert was a bit too depressing and Anne was a bit too chipper. The story felt rushed and there's no real passion between Anne and Robert. I did like the parallels to the Beauty and the Beast tale. There was such promise and the plot was enticing but it didn't seem to pan out. I really wanted more detail. Overall, I would recommend this book as short and easy weekend read.
