The many wondrous gifts of Johanna Lindsey -- her fiery and endearing characters, her enthralling stories, her ingenious blending of Passion, wit, and emotion -- are all on glorious display in this unforgettable tale about an unwanted title and an unexpected love.
Has anyone in London ever taken part in the coming-out season with less enthusiasm than Sabrina? Luckily, the most sought-after lady in the city has agreed to usher this young, lovely country girl through the perils and pitfalls of her all-important first season.
Dashing highlander Duncan Mac Tavish is even less keen to be in London. Having recently learned he is the sole heirof an English marquis, Duncan is now required to assume his grandfather's title and estates -- and to marry Sabrina's ravishing, viper-tongued guide, who has been heard to make scathing statements in public about her "Scottish barbarian" groom-to-be.
His unwanted betrothal, however, has brought Duncan into close proximity with the enchanting Sabrina -- a kindred spirit whose wit delights him ... and whose essence is the exquisite stuff of dreams. But duty, station, and a secret that dwells in the lady's past forbid Sabrina's and Duncan's desired union -- unless true love can somehow miraculously find a way.
Too many typos!
Johanna Lindsey is one of my all time favorite authors. My complaint is not with her, or the story - but the shocking number of typos I found in the online version of this book.
I would hope the publisher could afford to hire someone to proof read, but it looked like they relied on spellcheck instead.
Now go read book 2 in the series!
Sweet story but missing some of the Lindsey adventure. I considered it worth the read just as a character set up for the better book in this series:The Devil Who Tamed Her. Even in this book, Ophelia and Rafe are more interesting characters.
The editing of the ebook was maddening. “Many” instead of “Marry” and other similar mistakes should have been caught.
Not as awful as Warriors Woman
I think she was channeling her inner Jane Austin with a smattering of the Eyre sisters.
