The pursued becomes the pursuer. After years of having Rowena MacLawry, the youngest sister of his closest friend, tagging after him, all Lachlan MacTier wants to do is escape. But then Winnie runs off to London, determined to forget Lachlan in the swirl of her debutante Season.
When she returns three months later to prepare for her oldest brother's lavish Highlands wedding, Rowena is a changed woman. She's smothered her Scottish brogue, become an arbiter of the latest Paris and London fashions, and is in the company of several handsome young English aristocrats all vying for her favors.
Lach doesn't quite know what to make of this witty, sophisticated beauty who now has better things to do than follow him to a fishing pond. But the more determined she seems to be to prove that she has no need to fawn after a Scottish, kilt-wearing rogue who couldn't even be bothered to write her a single letter while she was away, the more interested he is in Winnie. Is she pretending to disdain him now, or has he truly lost his chance at a lady who is turning out to be far more lovely and interesting than he ever imagined?
I have read the first two books in the series, The Devil Wear’s Kilts and Rogue with a Brogue. This one takes her talent as a writer to new heights. I have been waiting for Lachlan McTier to get his comeuppance and this is it!
I celebrated Rowena’s feisty attitude and determination to make her own way in spite of the wishes (demands) of her brothers. And when she returns after her season in London…she’s not the same little girl that left. Even better Lachlan’s feelings even take him by surprise. I think men can really be dense and a horse’s behind sometimes…Lachlan is both. So this story felt like I was getting reacquainted with old friends and learning more about them. I loved both characters, and I thought I knew exactly how their story was going to play out. The end result was the same but getting there was so much more enjoyable than I imagined.
The background characters particularly the brothers were awesome. I have several big brothers so I definitely saw some of them in the antics of Rowena’s brothers. They weren’t going to let Lachlan just decide he wanted Rowena. They made him prove his worth and his love for her.
I encourage readers to read the previous 2 books, but I think this story can be enjoyed as a standalone.
