“ARC given for an honest review”

After years of fighting in France, Sir Gavin Patrick longs for his Scottish home and for an easier life off the battlefield. However, laden with a shipment of orphans, a massive treasure to transport, and Lady Marie Colette—a sharp-tongued French heiress—Gavin realizes that the real battle is only beginning. Colette expects a painless trip as Gavin transports her to her Highland fiancé, but their relationship takes an unexpected turn…
Forced to pose as a married couple in order to sneak out of France, Gavin and Colette fight against their developing, forbidden attraction…all the while yearning to fulfill their pent-up desire.

First Sentences

Sir Gavin Patrick spurred his destrier and raced into the rising tide of English soldiers with the full knowledge they had already lost.

My Thoughts

Since my first novel about highlanders I’ve become addicted so I jumped at the chance for this book. Most of the plot points happened on the road between Gavin and Collette. I found that this story was a little boring and didn’t really have any plot twists. What you expect would happen between Gavin and Collette happened. I felt there were parts of the backstory that could have been explained a little more. I enjoyed Gavin’s character and would have liked to see a little more of him but Collette’s character was annoying and blah. I was quite disappointed with the story overall.
