This was a really cute book and I loved both of the main characters. I feel like you should probably read book one (while the duke was sleeping) to understand this one better but I did skip book 2 to get to this one. I'm going to read the rest of the series which means it was genuinely good!
Not my favourite book by this author. The characters didn’t have enough depth for me, especially Marcus the ‘hero’. Also some of the details were inaccurate, e.g. distance between Glasgow and Inverness- if the author was not going to use realistic travel times, why not just make up place names, it is fiction after all? Saying all that, this is a pleasant read, but one I found myself skimming over rather than being really involved with the story.
This is my first book by Jordan. It was ok. It didn't rouse anything in me sometimes the main characters inner dialogue was tiresome and repetitive. The plot was promising but didn't seem to go anywhere. Marcus saved a peasant girl in a burst of benevolence and then much of the story is about him being a bastard. Just wasn't exciting enough for me.
I really enjoyed this book and read it in one day without wanting to put it down. Well written with a really steamy, slow burn romance set in Scotland in the 1800's. I assume it's the Victorian era because there was mention of trains. I liked that this author knew it would take one or two weeks to get to the highlands from the lowlands on horseback. As usual I read number three of this series before one and two. Sigh... There were no spoilers for the other two books in this one, except of course I knew the other couples had a HEA. LOL. One couple made a brief appearance, but I would still advise you to read the series in order if you can. However, this book can be read as a stand alone no problems. There was some drama, some fun, but mostly an interesting and engaging romance from a favourite author of mine. I'm giving this 9/10! 😍 BTW, if you haven't read this author's "Devil's Rock" novels, give them a go. Contemporary romantic suspense.
Ich habe dieses, das im Moment letzte Buch dieser Serie als erstes gelesen, unabsichtlich. Danach habe ich mich sofort auf die Suche nach den anderen beiden gemacht. Alle drei Bücher sind ungewöhnlich, spannend bis zum Schluss und mit Sexszenen gewürzt, es gibt keine Längen oder, wie in vielen Büchern dieses Genres, unerträglich lange Gedankenbeschreibungen und trotzdem kann man sich in die Gedanken von Alyse und Marcus gut einfühlen. Ich weiß zwar nicht ob die im Buch beschriebene Ehefrauenauktion historisch richtig ist aber letzten Endes ist es auch egal, es könnte so gewesen sein und nur das zählt für mich in einem Roman dieses Genres.
Es ist nicht unbedingt notwendig alle drei Bücher zu lesen, oder auch in der richtigen Reihenfolge, aber es erhöht die Spannung.
