Overview

Shona Imrie should have agreed toGordon MacDermond’s proposal of marriageseven years ago—before he went off to war andreturned a national hero—but the proud Scottishlass would accept no man’s charity. The dashingsoldier would never truly share her love and the passion that left her weak and breathless — or so she believed—so instead she gave herselfto another. Now she faces disgrace, poverty, and a life spent alone for her steadfast refusalto follow her heart.

Honored with a baronetcy for hiscourage under fire, Gordon has everything hecould ever want—except for the one thinghe most fervently desires: the headstrong beautyhe foolishly let slip through his fingers.Conquering Shona’s stubborn pride, however,will prove his most difficult battle—thoughit is the one for which he is most willing to riskhis life, his heart, and his soul.

Meet the Author

Karen Ranney began writing when she was five. Her first published work was The Maple Leaf, read over the school intercom when she was in the first grade. In addition to wanting to be a violinist (her parents had a special violin crafted for her when she was seven), she wanted to be a lawyer, a teacher, and, most of all, a writer. Though the violin was discarded early, she still admits to a fascination with the law, and she volunteers as a teacher whenever needed. Writing, however, has remained the overwhelming love of her life.

I read hundreds of books a year and I usually love Karen Ranney's work. I couldn't finish this one, I stopped reading it in chapter 10. It was depressing, difficult to follow and I didn't like or understand the "heroine". I can't remember ever quitting on a book before. The format wouldn't let me give it no stars.

I absolutly adore the characters in this book. Shona, a woman who is too stubborn, headstrong, and prideful for her own good, and Gordon, the man who conquers her fears and rekindles the love they once knew. Fergus, Shona's brother, who is trying to live with a war wound and deal with his own feelings of love for an angel of mercy. Helen, not only a companion, but a friend. And a long ago story of love so bittersweet it will squeeze your heart. There were moments that I busted out laughing and moments that I teared up. There was even a moment that I was there, on the hill, listening to outlawed pipes as the sound wrapped itself about me. Karen never fails to deliver, for me. I highly recomend this book to anyone who wants to lose theirself in a world of Scottish charm and love. Just remember, often the road to happiness is a bumpy one. Enjoy the ride!
