APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
The fate of the close-knit MacGregor clan rests on the broad shoulders of older brother Ian. He intends to woo Eugenia Daniels—the timid daughter of an English baron—then collect a substantial dowry and rescue his family from financial ruin. The latest romance from bestselling author Grace Burrowes is a delectable treat, bursting with colorful characters, gorgeous descriptions of the Scottish highlands, and dramatic plot twists of forbidden love and attempted murder. Eugenia’s cousin, Augusta Merrick, is a smart, dynamic female protagonist readers can’t help but root for—you’ll be riveted to find out if she ends up with the handsome, kindhearted man she deserves.
Burrowes (Lady Louisa s Christmas Knight) shifts from Regency England to Victorian Scotland with this delightful series kickoff. Highlander Ian MacGregor, the impoverished earl of Balfour, is resigned to marrying an English heiress, Eugenia Daniels, for the sake of his clan. In truth, he d rather spend time with Augusta Merrick, Eugenia s spinster cousin and chaperone. Augusta tries to help Ian court her reluctant cousin, but their mutual attraction keeps getting in the way. Hopes for a happy ending are complicated by secrets that put Augusta s life in danger, requiring the cooperation of both extended families to set things right. Historical details enrich Burrowes s intimate and erotic story, but the real stars are her vibrant characters and her masterful ear for dialogue. Burrowes is superb at creating connections that feel honest and real, and the side romances for Ian s siblings, treated with the same tenderness and care as her central pair, makes this tale even sweeter.

The bridegroom wore plaid
Love love this book. I could not put it down. Love the story of family, honor, and romance without being too detailed. The characters are well developed and u can't help but fall in love with them.mu won't regret this read. The suspense is nail bitting.
There were some funny lines. But in the middle of the book, I got a bit bored. I even wanted to just read the last chapter. I truly didn't find many interesting spots. Grammar was good, no misspellings that I know of. Okayish storyline, all in all, I wouldn't read it again. However, I don't regret it.
