    An enticing read and a must read

    This is a must read historical romance.
    I completely fell in love with this book and I'm certain you will too.

    Perfect Strangers is set in the beautiful 16th Century lands of England and Scotland.
    It's the sotry of Gabrielle Carelton who is on her way to Scotland from England to wed Colin Douglas to end all feuds between the Maxwells and the Douglases that have been going on for the past century. But on her way she is kidnapped by Colin's twin brother, The Black Douglas, Connor
    Connor kidnaps Gabrielle because he needs an heir and also loves to anger his brother.

    I cannot tell you to much without giving away too much of the story.
    But when Gabrielle sees Connor, she feels the heat rise in her as she has never felt this feeling before.
    And Connor, well, need I say more?..
    But sparks fly between these two, that's for certain.

    This book is filled with action, love, and oh yes, a few well written and quite respectful love/sex scenes. Nothing distasteful, but on the contrary so preciously romantic.

    I must warn you that it is written in some Scottish burr but you will get the hang of it quite fast.
    I mean I'm French and I understood it quite fast, so if I did, anyone can too.

    The other thing I really enjoyed about the story, is that the author Rebecca chose to make her leading lady not very beautiful or not the perfect body. Which is one of her main concerns when she first gets really close for the first time with Connor, but he has a way of making her feel very beautiful, because he truly does find her beautiful and he loves that she is shapely and curvy because that makes her stronger and healthier. It also makes her perfect to have children. Through his eyes, Gabrielle eventually finds herself beautiful.
    I myself am 6 feet and am curvaceous and big boned and at 47 years old, I can say that I still hold my own.
    I totally loved this character for these reasons, because it made her feel so real and close to me.
    Except that my husband is not taller then me but a bit shorter, lol....
    But even though, this story moved me to the core, I truly enjoyed it.
    I cannot wait to read another one of Rebecca Sinclair's books.

    A Great Read!

    What a wonderful Historical romance story, I was hooked the entire time. It was sexy, sweet and very HOT. The characters were very believable, and easy to fall in love with. The storyline was fascinating; with turns that kept you hooked. I felt the story was written so well, that you felt like you were there with the characters through their journey! I would recommend this to anyone who likes a good Historical romance novel.

    A Winner!

    Historical romance at its very best, PERFECT STRANGERS delighted this reader with its proud heroine and fabulous hero. Their rocky start takes them on a conflict-filled journey, but, in the end, their love for one another cannot and will not be denied.
    Bravo, Rebecca Sinclair!

    Highly Recommended

    I was asked to read/review this book and since Historical Romance is one of my favorite generes to read besides Paranormal, I jumped at the chance. I have to say the cover art for the book is absolutely beautiful, makes you want to dive right into the story.

    I have to say this is a Historical Romance at it's finest, It has everything you want in a Historical Romance, I love reading from the 16th Century England/Scotland. Gabrielle Carelton is on her way to meet Collin Douglas her betrothed, but, on her journey she is kidnapped by a man named Black Douglas. Black Douglas has a reputation of being one of the most fierce men with our mercy for anyone, but, he just happens to also be Collin Douglas's twin brother.

    I am not going to spill all the details and if I go to deep I will spoil it for you and I don't want to do that, but I will say this is an absolute MUST READ, if you like Historical Romance then you will love this book, I love the two main characters Rebecca has built, very strong, strong willed characters, Gabrielle is a "sturdy" woman who has lots of self doubts and more worries than a lady should have, Collin, so different from his brother. In the beginning of the story of two people that were strangers, enemies in fact, only to be into a love story you will think about long after this book is done.

    I myself being not a perfectly shaped lady, truly loved this story more as Gabrielle was described the same, and to be recognized for her inner beauty is more than what's on the outside, when a story is written like this I feel it hits more readers as it makes the character more real, more identifiable with. It has everything you want in a book, romance, action packed, the right amount of danger, twits and turns that made me hold my breath and it was full of humour, just the right amount of everything that makes a good book great.

    I hope you will all pick up your copy and enjoy it as much as I did. Enjoy!!!!
