I bought this book from my local library thinking it would be a good read on a rainy summer day. It was set in one of my favorite places, Scotland, and in an era I always enjoy reading about. It held my interest after the first chapter, but from the time the lead male and female characters meet, it was all downhill. The readers of this book will be in the dark about Iana's past with only a vague and shallow insight offered by the author as to what put her in a cottage all by herself with a young child that was not her own. I felt like I was reading a continuation of a previous story!! This book would have been more interesting had the author not made the characters so impersonal. One read on not caring whether the lead characters got together or not, because it was unclear when that first spark of attraction or that first tug of the heart occurred!! I don't even remember when the author first described the lead female's physical description so in the mind of the reader there was no formed idea of what she looked like or how she might have appeared were one to actually meet her. In all, the book was a long, boring slog through the beautiful scottish countryside but unless one had been to scotland as I have, well it was left to the imagination of the reader. The only slightly endearing character was the young page that travelled with the lead male character and the baby they somehow rehabilitated from starvation and abuse. There was a longer book hidden in here, and the author for whatever reason decided to not enlarge upon the lead female's past, her family, her first marriage and how that shaped her outlook on her life, and in the end the coupling between her and the lead male was tasteless, passionless, boring and almost an afterthought. There was not enough depth of feeling coming from the pages of the book to warrant them having sex, seeing as how the lead female protested all through the first half of the book to never be vulnerable or to belong to anyone again. As for the lead male Henri, what a bore!! He might have been handsome as described, but he seemed out of his depth, and his past life and marriage as alluded to by the author would have been interesting to run through as a lead-up to where he was when he met Iana. All in all this book should be rewritten by someone who would take all the interesting side characters and the theme of the story and inject some soul into it. If you want a good sexy historical and hilarious read with passion, find and read books by Betina Kranz.
