I was captivated by this passionate Highland romance. I loved it from start to finish!
It was a great story filled with passionate emotions, romance and heartache. Violet gets kidnapped and then handed over to a ruthless man who holds a grudge against her for his tragic past. Ewan blamed her for ruining his life, yet she still yearns for the boy he once was. They are drawn to each other even though he treated her very badly in the beginning of the story. Could he earn his redemption? Well, that was the meat of this story and there were times when I doubted if it could be done.
This book was filled with drama. It put me through an emotional wringer as Ewan and Violet faced so many obstacles on their way to a happy ending. I felt that it was well written. I liked the author's writing style. She gave me a strong plot that I could sink my teeth into, with characters that were easy to like. I loved the angst and the rush that I got from the gamut of emotions. I despised Ewan at first, but then later on I liked how he redeemed himself with Violet.
I love Highland romance and this was one that I enjoyed a lot.
Kidnapped and held prisoner by a menacing Scottish brigand, Violet does her best to persevere and resist his rakish charms. When she realizes the brigand is really Ewan, the boy who once saved her life, who once kissed her and ruined her for all other kisses, she is lost.
Ewan desperately needs the respectability a titled bride can bring him. But when his kidnapped betrothed is delivered--bound and gagged--he discovers it's the wrong woman. And not just any woman--it's Violet, the person he blames for ruining his childhood. He keeps her, determined to punish her in every sinful way he can devise, until the seething passion between them strips away old grudges and leaves him reeling.
By the time he realizes the depths of his feelings for her, she's fled. All he can do is follow her--and win her back by partaking in the glittering London Season, where the harpies are far more dangerous than a Scottish brigand.
