Genevieve McInnes has lived the past year in hell. Ever since Ian McHugh kidnapped her, every dream she had is in ashes. But there is a light in darkness: Ian is dead, and his father has fled. She finally has a chance to live her life the way she wants. True, her dreams are different now, a quiet life in a abbey is all she needs now, not even close to her girlish dreams of a home and family. Unfortunately, it seems like she can't get even that. The new laird, Bowen Montgomery, won't let her go.
Bowen isn't sure what to think of Genevieve. He can't imagine the lively lass living the rest of her life as an abbess. He will let her go, as soon as he figures out her role in the McHugh keep, and the reason why everyone at said keep hates her.
While they were busy trying to discern each other secrets, love snuck up on them. *sigh*
I rather like Ms. Banks' highlander romances. So, I was delighted to receive an ARC of this book. Unfortunately, something about it simply didn't sit right with me.
While both Bowen and Genevieve are generally good characters, they both had flaws that irritated me. Bowen, with his jumping to conclusions, Genevieve with her secrets, pride, and being constantly morose.
Don't get me wrong, I did like it, but it was not nearly as good as the other book in this series.
A great thing, are the Montgomerys and Armstrongs. All of the men are so yummy.
All in all, a book that had a lot of promise, but didn't completely deliver. Nevertheless, I will definitely be reading the next book in the series Highland Ever After.ARC received from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
