Desperate times sometimes call for desperate measures. Especially when you’re married to a laird who won’t even look at you…


The beginning of this story wasn’t quite what I expected. I was really expecting a kidnap from the very start that possibly lead to a love and marriage. Instead it started with a marriage, and the kidnapping doesn’t occur until about halfway through. Though it works brilliantly and beautifully. And I turned the last page of this book with a great smile on my face.

This story starts off with an estranged couple, and quickly fills in the backstory as to their epic failing at being a couple. Even though it’s pretty obvious that they’re going to reconcile their differences fairly quickly in this story. After all, it’s in a romance collection. It’s still intriguing and captivating the ways in which the two stubborn fools manage to make their relationship work and start on a new adventure… together.
