Nice story with a little real history thrown in.
This was another amazing book. This had romance , intrigue and mystery plus history. This was definitely worth reading in this trilogy.
Portia and Pierce are both strong personalities. Pierce, as the second son, left his home in Scotland to live in the colonies where he could make his fortune in shipping far from the tragedy that befell his brother the Earl. Not wanting to tie himself down after seeing the damage his brother's first wife caused he spreads his charm around to ladies who will not capture him. Portia as an illegitimate daughter of an unwed mother was taken away at birth and raised by the loving sponsor of an orphange for abandoned Jacobite children. Finding out her mother may be alive living in the colonies, Portia traveled as a governess to Boston to see if she can find the parent who abandoned her. The plot is afoot as she attempts to meet her mother and comes into repeated contact with the handsome Pierce under unusual circumstances. This was a novel filled with the intrigue of unrest in the colonies set in the early 1770's and tied to the Jacobite cause. I very much enjoyed the settings and characters involved.
I enjoyed this book. This is the 2nd in the series and you should read them in order. although there is another story that really goes before book 1 that was worth reading beforehand - 'the promise' was really a good book to read before starting this series.
Did not enjooy reading
