Julia London has returned to Scotland. This reader lass is verra verra happy she has, as I always love her Scottish historicals.
This is the second book in her Highland Grooms new series. What is wonderful about this novel is: you can read them as a stand alone book. I loved the first book and the second book follow as another magnificent read that serious historical readers will love.
I love the heroine is the pursuer and the hero is the shy and a bit timid. It was refreshing to read this reversal in the roles. I loved sinful Scottish Laird and looks forward to book 3 which is about this book’s brother.
I highly recommend you read this brilliant book as I absolutely loved it. As this Austin, Texas author has always been a huge favorite of mine.
I received a an advance reader copy from the publisher. I voluntarily agreed to do a fair review and blog through netgalley. All thoughts, ideas and words are my own.
