This is the tale of how Harry met Fiona… And broke her heart.
They say hell hath no fury like a woman scorned but Fiona MacKintosh was more inclined to believe that after a long, furious journey through hell, no scorned woman was apt to be inclined to love and entrust her heart to a man so easily again.
Especially not to the same man!
Lord Harrison Brudenall, Marquis of Aylesbury, isn’t a man to let what he wants slip through his fingers, and what Harry wants is Fiona as his wife. Two years past, friendship and respect for the MacKintosh brothers compelled him to discourage the infatuation and flirtation of their only sister even if he denied himself in the process, but the years since have changed Harry. The joy and humor once readily found in his life has become conspicuously absent but Harry doesn’t realize just how lacking they had been until he met Fiona MacKintosh once more.
Unconventional, daring and achingly beautiful, she reminds Harry of everything his life has been missing and what it was like to truly feel alive. Now, he means to have the tempermental Highland lass for his own whether the whole of the MacKintosh clan – Fiona included – approves or not.
And she does not!
Fiona is determined to find a man and marriage meant for her convenience and the handsome, charismatic, heartbreaking marquis, Harry Brudenall, is not on her list. But when danger looms unexpectedly, and it is her life rather than her heart that is in peril, Fiona soon realizes that there is only one man she wants to turn to for protection.
There was just something about Harry. The one man who will prove his love … and without question, give his life for her.

I think this is my favorite in the Questions series. I look forward to the next story, maybe Connor and Piper. I also think Lord Temple should be rewarded for his patience at some point.
The series is really good and I don't mind the fact that it took Fiona a long time to forgive Harry. I would have done the same. I know in romance books we want every thing neat and tidy but life gets messy and I love the fact that Angeline Fortin bring life with all its ups and downs to her stories. I can't wait to read about James and Connor's story. I just wish in this story she would have given more reason for Harry's sister's disappearence. May be she will let us know in Connor's story.If you want to start this series start with the perfect question. I dont know why she doesnt recomand it as the first book. I read the series before she wrote the perfect question and one time afterward. The whole series makes a lot more sense with that book as the first and then move to a question of Love, Trust and Lust and then finally the Harry's story. Hope the next book comes out soon.
She does wonders with Fiona's story but it sure had a lot of annoying errors. Spell-check is no substitute for proof reading!
Loved this book. It's the first I've read of Angeline Fortin's work, and I hope to read more. Her characters are lively, humorous and believable. Although at first I thought it took a long time for Fiona to come around and be a little receptive to Harry, I changed my mind once I realized that it was really only a couple of weeks, and Fiona was just being careful. I also loved the detailed descriptions of the clothes, the settings, and the real events of the time period. Along the same line, Fortin includes a short history of the 1890s at the end of the novel, and I was really pleased to gain these new insights. It just makes the whole book seem so much richer.
