On the cusp of her first London season, Miss Madeline Gracechurch was shy, pretty, and talented with a drawing pencil, but hopelessly awkward with gentlemen. She was certain to be a dismal failure on the London marriage mart. So Maddie did what generations of shy, awkward young ladies have done: she invented a sweetheart. A Scottish sweetheart. One who was handsome and honorable and devoted to her, but conveniently never around. Maddie poured her heart into writing the imaginary Captain MacKenzie letter after letter . . . and by pretending to be devastated when he was (not really) killed in battle, she managed to avoid the pressures of London society entirely. Until years later, when this kilted Highland lover of her imaginings shows up in the flesh. The real Captain Logan MacKenzie arrives on her doorstep—handsome as anything, but not entirely honorable. He's wounded, jaded, in possession of her letters . . . and ready to make good on every promise Maddie never expected to keep.… (mer)

Such a funny one. I loved it and read it too quickly. ( )

A nice story. This one is creeping toward a 3.5 but not quite there. I really liked the characters, but Maddy was a little too fast to fall, a little too fast to give up everything including her "room of one's own" given the way Logan marched in all threat and bluster. From the start he had nothing to lose and she had everything, and it felt like that should have mattered.

I liked Logan's men, and was happy to see a book address "shell shock" with compassion and respect.

Side note: Fluffy and Rex are the best names for a lobster couple, ever. ( )

I'm not crying. I just have the sands of Durness in my eyes.

This is another case of "I was gonna give this 4 stars, but I can see no reason why I shouldn't give it 5."

Read my full review here. ( )

That was a quick read. It was all Tessa Dare flavor and fantasy and fun ...

I think the above sentence really sums it up--I did enjoy this more than many other Dares, but I hesitate to give it above a 4 because it's simply a bit inconsistent. Logan was clearly goo from the get go, and I get that he might come across as creepy if he'd not been presented as a shell of a man from then. But still, he was goo. It didn't any time to establish. To me, that's a bit of a bummer. I like a tough-turned-tender hero.

And, really, I don't mind if they didn't love each other from the letters. Generally though, this book gave me lots of swoons, some great rain kissing, and I absolutely adored "Remember when..." games. I really enjoyed the final part of the book, when the longing of Maddie and Logan was clear--and the sexual tension warring with the emotional tension was just perfect. ( )
