Virginia Whitebridge is trapped in a loveless, abusive marriage. The law says her husband can have whatever he wants from her—so he's taken her inheritance. And he tried to kill her. After a close escape, Virginia feels protected for the first time in forever, thanks to the Scottish Highlands and the Highlander Magnus Sinclair. But she must go back to England, regardless of the danger, to reclaim what's hers. Even if it means leaving her heart in Scotland.

It's just Magnus's luck that he's fallen for a woman he can't have. Virginia is rich and titled... and English. To keep her safe, he must follow her to the one place he loathes—England. Where the bowing, preening London Society has a secret language of manners unknown to him. Where he is too large, too uncivilized, too everything.

Despite omens that death awaits him there, Magnus vows to help Virginia go to London and restore her fortune. Get in. Get out. Or die trying.

This is the third story in the Highlanders of Balforss series and has many characters in common with the earlier stories but it is written as a standalone and is a fantastic regency romance.

Hurray for highlander romance! One of my favourite escapist pleasures.

I'm hugely biased towards this sub-genre, possibly because my first kiss was with a young Scot who was wearing a kilt at the time. This book hit the nail even more squarely on the head, since the young gentleman in question was al ...more
