This is the third story in the Highlanders of Balforss series and has many characters in common with the earlier stories but it is written as a standalone and is a fantastic regency romance. It does contain events which could be triggers for some people, so avoid it if reading about abusive relationships, kidnapping or adultery upset you.

Vicountess Langley, Virginia Whitebridge, has had enough of her abusive marriage but the law gives her husband her inheritance – well, all except the significant trust fund her father set up for her. When she discovers he has also taken that, she’s determined to get it back. However, as she leaves her solicitor’s offices she is kidnapped and loaded onto a pirate ship. This is the start of a tedious, frightening sea journey around Britain, a journey she doesn’t expect to escape from. However, fate has other plans when the Sinclairs come to rescue another of the captives, freeing all those incarcerated on the ship. This leads to her reconnecting with someone she attended school with and meeting the Highlanders of Balforss….. including Magnus, who helped in her rescue and is determined to protect her. As the attraction between the two flares even hotter, she is still set on returning to reclaim her fortune and Magnus plans to go, too, even though two people have foreseen this leading to his death . . . .

This is a steamy, hot, historical romance with plenty of twists and turns to keep the reader guessing. The writing flows well and the characters are robustly developed. Magnus is a brilliant character, a strong, determined man who is loyal and faithful, the epitome of the Highland hero! If you enjoy historical romances with handsome Highlanders rushing to the rescue and finding love, you’ll probably thoroughly enjoy this story – but I have warned you of possible triggers! I’m really looking forward to reading ‘Bull’s’ story!

I requested and was given a copy of this book, via NetGalley. This is my honest review of the book after choosing to read it.


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.
