Lady Alice Chivers is done being controlled by her family. On the run from an arranged and unwanted marriage, what she really needs in order to escape is a strong Highlander. And she’s pretty sure she’s found him. Only Philip MacGregor insists on sending her back to her pampered life… so she’ll just have to blackmail him instead.

Seems simple enough, until they accidentally get married.

Philip is cautious, in control, and in way over his head with his unexpected wife. She’s intense, spontaneous, and can’t follow an order to save her life. Oh, and he might be falling for her. However, her distractions are putting everyone in danger. Now he must somehow undo the damage before his friends pay with their lives.

They do say opposites attract and in the case of Philip and Alice, it takes a while to get there! A young lady being forced to marry a man with three dead wives and old enough to be her grandfather. What could be wrong with that? Especially since rumors are his wives died under shady circumstances. ...more

3.5-4 Stars!! I liked this book! It can be read as a standalone but I’m glad I read the other books first because although there is some backstory given, there is a lot of crossover from the previous books & I liked the update on those couples! I didn’t really feel the love between the main characte ...more

Lady Alice knows a rotten apple when she sees one. She refuses to let an arranged marriage to a lecherous old man be the death of her. This sassy, impulsive, take charge bonny lass would rather go on the lam than marry under questionable circumstances. What surprised me the most was her supposedly d ...more

Spoiled and high born, Lady Alice has it all, until her parents agree to her betrothal to an earl who is much older and has a string of former wives who have died under suspicious circumstances. Everyone she confides her fears to dismisses this information as idle gossip, so Alice decides to take ma ...more

Alice lives the life of a spoiled debutante. Her parents have promised her hand in marriage to an older gentleman who is definitely not who Alice would have picked. Making it worse than the fact that he is not physically appealing is that the gentleman has been widowed 3 times under suspicious circu ...more

By Fizza January 14, 2019

This is such a fun read. I quite enjoyed Lady Alice's character. Her tendency to leap before thinking made this story very entertaining. She is definitely an infuriating woman. On this, I agree with Phillip. Poor highlander doesn't stand a chance. ;)

I was sucked into this book immediately, but I think the main culprit was the heroine not the guy right off. I think it's because she was such a strong character, but admittedly spoiled. I love how she owned up to her up bringing, didn't justify just accep ...more

This is a voluntary review of an advanced copy.

It has been awhile since I read book 2 but it really is explained well so if you have not read any of the previous books in the series you are not lost. I enjoyed the book but it is not my favorite kind of romance. Philip and Alice were so different and ...more

A fun highlander romance story about headstrong Alice and hunky Philip. Sparks fly and tempers abound in this fun romp. For one, they get married at least 3 times during their adventure. This is the first book I've read in the series, so since it is book 3 there are a few things that didn't have muc ...more

What I enjoy most about the MacLean stories is her humor as well as the romance. And the sexy highlanders is not exactly a problem to read either.

Lady Alice is strong and independent or as independent as she can be in that era. But I love that she stands her ...more

I received an advanced review copy of this book.

I found the hero, Philip, to be more likable in this story than the heroine, Alice, in this novel. I found her to be exasperating at her inability to listen to anything Philip said to keep her safe. She was a bold character and seemed knowledgeable ab ...more

By Cheryl January 04, 2019

This was a good paced read with plenty of action. I loved the interaction between Philip and Alice. Alice was inclined to act without considering the consequences if her actions. Philip liked order and to think things through before he acted. This led to some entertaining moments between them. There ...more

Alice isn't about to marry the man who has already buried 3 wives so when Philip delivers a much wanted letter from her exiled best friend, she jumps at the chance to have him help her. Too bad he doesn't seem inclined to do so. This is until she blackmails him...
