The MacTaggert brothers have one task:
Find English brides or lose their land!
Coll MacTaggert, Viscount Glendarril, is a big, brawny Highlander who doesn’t like being told what to do―not even by his exasperated English mother who is determined to see her eldest son wedded and bedded. However, when he comes to the rescue of an irresistibly beautiful woman, Coll discovers that he may have found his perfect match…
The challenge isn’t that Persephone Jones is famous, wealthy, independent, and smarter than anyone he knows. The problem is that she isn’t interested in marrying any man—especially not a hot-headed Scot―even if he is the only man who seems to understand who she really is even when she’s not sure herself. When Coll learns that Persephone is actually a lady-in-hiding and someone is willing to kill her for what she stands to inherit…Well, Coll has never been one to turn down a fight. When hearts are involved, nothing comes between a Highlander and his lady.
Lady Aldriss left the Highlands and her husband seventeen years ago. She left her sons and took her daughter, but there were stipulations attached when she left. Their sons would marry English women before their daughter weds. The problem here is the men involved have never been to England and with their sister Eloise engaged they are on a time limit. Nigel and Aden have found their brides and fortunately love as well. That leaves Coll to find a bride and now he’s only got four weeks to do it.
In the last book Eloise’s fiance and Aden’s bride’s brother Matthew Harris made a huge mistake, and Coll’s about to give him a reminder of what he promised. His mother has once again ambushed him at the theatre with two more eligible woman, and he’s leaving, again.
Coll is determined to find his own wife, but hasn’t found anyone with whom he could see himself spending the rest of his life. That is until he pays to be backstage at the performance of ‘As You Like It’.
The leading lady Mrs. Persephone Jones, is a very talented and beautiful woman. Her admirers are of all types but they don’t see her they see the character she happens to portray. Coll is different, and she’s glad to have encouraged him when her current ‘protector’ decides he wants her to pay up, or rather put out.
This is just the first time Coll protects her by booting the man out then escorting her to her carriage. There is a definite attraction between them and it’s more than perfect. Coll can now taunt his mother with having found a woman to marry, knowing she will not approve the match. Persephone is an actress and a commoner, certainly not suitable for Viscount Glendarril.
As Coll pursues Persephone, a string of ‘accidents’ begin. All of which could have caused her death. These two start heating up rapidly as Coll becomes her lover as well as her protector. The problem is he really does want her for his wife.
A fun tale with intrigue, mystery, betrayal, surprises and a sizzling romance.
I really have to go back and read the first book in this series.
