Sophia thought that her dalliance in the Scottish highlands was nothing but an amazing, and unforgettable fling. Until Ian, her secret lover decides to come hunting for her…


This was so incredibly sweet a story. Not only is it a nice historical romance set in England in the 1820’s, it also features a man who will do anything for his woman. And a woman who, though she loves dearly, will do anything to protect her son. The amount of passion and love in just a few short pages was just darling, and the fact that it was set against a romanticised English backdrop somehow just made it all the more fluid and beautiful.

Ian and Sophia work really nicely in this storyline. I love that there is a strong woman, and the man doesn’t try to control her, doesn’t try to stop her from being herself and doesn’t try to prevent her from being who and what she is. I also loved that the very thing that Sophia is trying to protect her son from is what ensures their happily ever after… at last.
