Rating: 5 Cups
Lady Susanna Cavendish is furious! Her king has arranged a marriage for her to a Scot. Raised all her life to believe the Scots are barbarians who rape and pillage on a whim, she is not happy to discover she is going to marry one.
Blair Ruthven is nervous as hell! His king has arranged a marriage with an English lady. Contrary to his younger brother’s teasing, she is not “fat and ugly” but is instead quite beautiful, according to her portrait. He is already taken with her before they meet and wants to make a good impression.
Susanna’s caravan is attacked during the long journey and two of her guards are killed. When she is carried off to be raped by highwaymen, her doubts about the entire endeavor seem to be taking on a life of their own. Fortunately, Blair hears some distressing rumors and comes riding to the rescue. It only takes a few days for them to fall in love. However, Blair has not told her who he really is. Will she forgive him when she finds out, or will she seek vengeance on the man who is to be her husband?
This book is a hot and exciting ride! While Susanna is the epitome of a young lady, her rebellious parts, the parts that like to cuss and enjoy sex, make her very endearing. Blair is the typical man without a clue when it comes to women. I loved reading about his reactions to her more rebellious parts, which it turns out is one of the reasons he falls in love with her. The sex is blistering hot! The secondary characters provide a great foil for this couple and make the story that much more fun as they increase the emotional tension. I highly recommend this book!
