Synopsis:A young widow puts her sexy suitors to the test in New York Times bestselling author Julia London’s scintillating return to the idyllic Scottish Highlands.
Widowed and forced to remarry in three years’ time or forfeit her son’s inheritance, Daisy Bristol, Lady Chatwick, has plenty of suitors vying for her hand…and her fortune. But a letter from a long-lost love sends Daisy and her young son to her Scottish Highland estate to buy time for his return. Along the way she encounters the powerful Cailean Mackenzie, laird of Arrandale and a notorious smuggler, and she is utterly—though unwillingly—bewitched.
Cailean has no use for any Sassenach in his glen. But Daisy’s brazen, flirtatious nature and alluring beauty intrigue him. When her first love appears unexpectedly at her estate, Cailean knows that a passionate woman like Daisy cannot marry this man. And to prevent the union, Cailean must put his own life at risk to win her heart.

I enjoyed reading this book and how we got to see another member of the Mackenzie family and what he was up to. It was also nice to catch up a little with the characters from the first book. I thought it was nice the way Cailean took Ellis under his wing and started teaching him things. In my opinion this is what helped bring him and Daisy together. The author did a good job in her writing and getting you to feel for both the main characters. Great character development. I was pulling for the two of them through the whole book. The author also did a good job with the descriptions so you can really feel like you are in the countryside. I also liked the little added touches of humor here and there along with the romance. I am looking forward to the next book in this series.
