Juliana St John was raised to be the perfect wife and hostess to a proper gentleman. Unfortunately, that proper gentleman left her at the altar before a crowd of her family and friends. Embarrassed and bereft, Juliana seizes the opportunity to wed the brother of her childhood friend. Unfortunately this marriage made in haste has not bound her to the boy she fantasized about as a girl, but the man life has forced him to be.
Elliot McBride cannot believe his good fortune. The most beautiful woman in the world all but begs him to be her groom. Tormented by the horrors he suffered during his military campaigns in India, Elliot knows he is consider mad by most. He sweeps Juliana off to a tumbledown castle in Northern Scotland in the hope of salvaging what is left of his humanity.
Despite the worry of her friends and family, Juliana knows the boy she once loved still lives within the suffering man she calls husband. Using her talent for organization, she sets about putting the castle and Elliot to rights. When the past comes knocking with a vengeance, Juliana is forced to put her faith in a man others call crazy. Knowing the risk, she gambles all on the man she knows will never let her down.
Readers will love this action packed, romantic story. Elliot is everything any girl could want in a Highlander and Juliana is a loveable type A lady with a wild streak a mile wide. The rundown castle is charming, the dialog witty, and the climax satisfying. This novel will make you want to run out and snatch up the rest of the Mackenzie series just to see what you have missed.
