Callie Hutton delivers another delightful romp with this eventful Regency romance. Lady Sarah Lacey is definitely no wilting English rose and I couldn’t help but cheer her on during her rather exciting trip. I will admit to cringing a little at some of her rather high-handed moments but instead of feeling angry with her it actually endeared her to me even more because it was so honest. I enjoyed getting to see just how different she and her twin truly were as when they were introduced much earlier in the series it seemed they were not. Her desire to remain single was so strong and I loved how the details as to why were revealed and just how much of an impact they had on her relationship.
Braeden McKinnon is a wonderful leading man. His superior intelligence and station in life are such a wonderful combination and I instantly lost my heart to him. I loved going along on the adventure with them and what an adventure it was.
This author has an amazing talent with creating secondary characters that are fascinating and have a way of making the lead couple all the more vibrant with their support. I cannot recommend this series highly enough and so far this particular story is my favorite. I suggest if you haven’t read this series you definitely start as you won’t be disappointed.
Lady Sarah Lacey is on the way to visit her twin sister in the Scottish Highlands when fate steps in and she is stranded without a carriage or a chaperone and the rules of etiquette fly out the proverbial window. Professor Braedon McKinnon is making his way home for a visit when he comes across the British miss and he offers to accompany her. They find themselves bound together for more than just the trip but how will they deal with this connection?
She never intended to take a husband...
The Duke of Manchester's sister, Lady Sarah Lacey, always abides by the rules of etiquette. Fate, however, has no such confines. On a journey to the Scottish Highlands, Lady Sarah is set upon by misfortune-leaving her without carriage or chaperone, and left to the mercy of a kind and handsome gentleman. Whom (in order to secure a room at an inn) she announces is her husband.
When she proclaims they're married in public, Professor Braeden McKinnon can't bring himself to correct the lovely Lady Sarah. After all, her reputation would be ruined. Nor can he tell her that her proclamation is not only legally binding in Scotland, but sharing a room is considered to be an act of consummation...
Now they are bound together until death do they part-even if Sarah has no intention of becoming any man's wife.
