5th sentence, 74th page: He crossed his arms over his chest, his muscles flexing, and gave her a look that had caused many a man to quiver in his boots.
Isobel knows that Ewan is fated to be her one true love, but a series of betrothals and mistakes could be a serious threat to her happily ever after.
The theme of fate and love is always something that suckers me in. The fact that these themes are based within the Scottish highlands in a time long gone… believe me, I was drawn into this story almost immediately. Especially since Isobel is obviously a woman with an amazing brain, and one who isn’t happy to just take what is convenient, but rather what is going to give her her happily ever after.
One of the things that kind of annoyed me about this is how much of a douche Ewan is. Alright, he kind of has a good reason… but mostly he just frustrates me and makes me feel like he’s being pigheaded for no purpose. Luckily, there is a happy ending for Isobel, otherwise I think I would have tried to reach through the pages of the book to smack the silly highlander around the face…
