Captivating, Sweet Romance!
This was a fascinating story with beautiful descriptive writing that whisked me back to the 1800's in the Scottish Highlands. This captivating, sweet historical romance was well written, with great complex, characters that are damaged due to their past and who have been living their life without the prospect of ever finding someone to love and care for them.
Theo Townsend has returned from the war a changed man, physically as well as mentally. When he inherits an Earldom with a secluded castle in the Scottish Highlands he is looking forward to the peace and quiet as well as a place to isolate himself and hide from society. It will be like a beacon of light in his dark existence. But when his siblings force him to let them come along he hopes that the size of the castle will afford him some space away from them.
Annabel Lockhart is a free spirited, passionate, woman who doesn't follow the rules of polite society. For years she and her Aunt have considered the Llynmore castle home thanks to the charity of the previous Earl of Arden. She thrives on doing whatever she wants with no one to answer to and enjoying the solitude in the moors. And she is not about to give up her home without a fight.
Theo finds himself unwillingly fascinated by her passion, how alive she is, and by her wicked and triumphant mouth. But he also has thoughts about touching and tasting her as well as some strong unwelcome lust he has for Annabel beyond all reason and good sense. Annabel is having thoughts of her own in regard to the too handsome Earl. But with the push and pull between them
as well as their witty and facetious banter their sizzling attraction ignites into a sizzling Kiss.
When danger darkens their door will the Earl protect Annabel's secret or will he send her away as he wanted in the beginning? Will these two overcome their past to find a future together? You will need to read this to find out!
