Virginia Whitebridge is trapped in a loveless, abusive marriage. The law says her husband can have whatever he wants from her—so he's taken her inheritance. And he tried to kill her. After a close escape, Virginia feels protected for the first time in forever, thanks to the Scottish Highlands and the Highlander Magnus Sinclair. But she must go back to England, regardless of the danger, to reclaim what's hers. Even if it means leaving her heart in Scotland.
It's just Magnus's luck that he's fallen for a woman he can't have. Virginia is rich and titled... and English. To keep her safe, he must follow her to the one place he loathes—England. Where the bowing, preening London Society has a secret language of manners unknown to him. Where he is too large, too uncivilized, too everything.
Despite omens that death awaits him there, Magnus vows to help Virginia go to London and restore her fortune. Get in. Get out. Or die trying.

Forgetting the Scot
Jennifer Tretheway takes us on another amazing adventure, with her strong characters and wonderful prose. First the title told me that our Heroine could never forget the Scot, I mean why would you! Virginia finds herself in a terrible marriage to a man who had only wanted her money. Unexpectedly she is taken in broad daylight and ends up a ship with several other women! But as luck or in this case fate would have it, she is rescued by a Scottish Clan of men and she meets Magnus.
The two have a strong attraction, but of course she needs to go back to England to claim what is hers that her husband stolen. Magnus is determined to go with her and be her protector but England is that last place he wants to go.
This story is fast paced and the plot will have you guessing and afraid to take a breath. Action, suspense, passion and love is woven together with great secondary characters that will take you to the end. Cannot wait for the next book by this talented author. I read this through NetGallery
