Lady Elizabeth Walsingham pined after the same man for years. When she finally realizes the brawny Highland laird doesn't return her feelings, she decides to leave for London and start anew. It seems that her prayers are answered when she catches the eye of a charming actor at the Globe Theatre - a man who is the complete opposite of the Highlander she once loved.
Laird Ian Monroe spends his time avoiding the bothersome young girl who dreams of their union. But when he travels to London and discovers that she has a new love interest with a dishonorable agenda, his perspective changes. Ian soon realizes that Elizabeth is no longer a child with a crush, but a beautiful woman in need of his help. He may have what it takes to rescue Elizabeth from her scheming beau, but does he have the courage to reclaim Elizabeth's heart as well?
What I thought of this book.
This third book in the series might be one of my favorites because I could understand Elizabeth and her crushing on an older guy. I have always liked older men…lol.
In book two we find out that Elizabeth has a crush on Laird Ian Monroe who is a friend of the Sutherlands. At the time she was about fifteen and he had no clue why she even liked him. He did his best to just stay away from her.
Now she is eighteen and has decided that she is tired of waiting for Ian to notice her and she gets to go to England to have her first outing and is determined to meet someone new. The Sutherlands and Monroe have been summons to court so they all go and for the first time, Ian sees that Elizabeth is all grown up.
Especially when she has caught the eye of an English gentleman. He gets very jealous and doesn’t know why he is acting this way. Elizabeth is too young for him and he shouldn’t have feelings for her. He isn’t very good with women because most don’t see him and being handsome. They see him as being a large kind of scary man. He thinks Elizabeth is to pretty for him and thinks she would prefer the cuter Englishman.
Elizabeth finds out that a Scotsman is a lot more honorable than Englishman and learns some things about her family she didn’t know.
The banter between the two of them is a lot of fun and I love how feisty Elizabeth is and that she knows what she wants, or I should say who she wants. She is a lot like her sister Grace from book two and even Fagan keeps thinking his wife is around when she starts speaking. Ian is a man who doesn’t think any woman would want to wed him because nobody has tried. He has been alone a long time and puts his foot in his mouth a bit with his awkwardness in trying to woe Elizabeth after he first screws things up. I think out of all the Scotsman he is my favorite.
Recommended for those who like historical romances. I advice you start with book one as this a small subplot that sort of goes through each of them and it would just make more sense.
Justine Eyre does a great job with historical romances.
