About the book:
A Riveting Edwardian Series Set among Britain's High Society

Lady Rowena Kinnaird may be the heiress to a Highland earldom, but she has never felt good enough--not for her father, not for the man she thought she'd marry, not for God. But after a shocking attack, she's willing to be forever an outcast if it means escaping Loch Morar.

Brice Myerston, the Duke of Nottingham, has found himself in possession of a rare treasure his enemies are prepared to kill for. While Brice has never been one to shy away from manor-born ladies, the last thing he needs is the distraction of Lady Rowena, who finds herself in a desperate situation. But when Rowena's father tries to trap Brice into marrying his daughter, Brice makes a surprising decision.

Rowena wanted to escape the Highlands, but she's reluctant to marry a notorious flirt. And when she learns that Brice is mixed up in questionable business with a stolen treasure, she fears she's about to end up directly in the path of everything she was trying to avoid.

My thoughts:
This was a great book maybe even better than the first if that is possible. I really enjoyed getting to  read another installment in the Ladies of the Manor Series. I loved that is is sent in the Scottish Highlands as I am drawn to books from there. Lady Rowena character was one I really felt for at times. She always felt like she was not good enough when she was really more than enough, she was a good person. I also liked the Duke and how he became a hero. The descriptions the author gave us were very good, you could really feel as if you were a part of the story. There was a little mystery as well as romance which added to the story. This book is a part of a series but it can be read as a stand alone. I myself am looking forward to book number three.
