I didn't really care for this book. I normally love her books... but just didn't get into this one. I gave 2 stars. ( )

I was a little disappointed by this one. The characters seemed rather lackluster compared to other books by the author. ( )

Typical Lindsey historical. Overblown emotional yarn with great characters. Quick read. ( )

I enjoy Johanna Lindsay's approach to historical romances where the story and character development is more important than graphic love scenes.This is the third in the Sherring Cross trilogy. The last third of the book I found tragged. The uncles took up too much space for my liking. But it came together in the last 2 chapters.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0380814803, Mass Market Paperback)

What was to be a grand adventure for Melissa MacGregor -- an escape from the wilds of her Scottish home into the whirl of the London social scene -- seems to pale before the promise in the passionate gaze of Lincoln Ross Burnett. Though they exchange but a few words before parting after a chance encounter on her grandfather's lands, Melissa instantly knows this bold stranger is her destiny, while Lincoln realizes his heart has been claimed forever and he will never be complete until Melissa MacGregor is his bride.

But there are serious obstacles impeding the well-smitten Viscount Cambury's pursuit of glorious romance: sixteen of them -- all big and brawny, six named Ian and all named MacFearson. The bane of Lincoln's youth, Melissa's stifling, disapproving uncles are now determined to rob him of his newfound happiness. Yet he is equally resolved to confront the peril -- and to pursue his exquisite obsession all the way to London. . . and to the ends of the earth, if necessary.

No es la primera vez que Lincoln Ross Burnett, el nuevo vizconde de Cambury, pisa Escocia. En realidad vivi‚o all‚i los doce ašnos, y conserva un recuerdo amargo... que se diluye cuando conoce a Melissa. En ella ha encontrado lo que no sab‚ia que estaba buscando. Enamorados y decididos a enlazar sus vidas, Melissa y Lincoln no imaginan que el suyo pueda ser un amor incomprendido...… (more)
