Synopsis"A lively writing style and detailed story lines are the mark of this truly excellent writer." ~Kathryn LeVeque, USA Today Bestselling Author 

She’s determined to end her betrothal, but he must make her his at all cost. 

A Scottish lass determined to end her betrothal. 

As an infant, Mayra Findlay’s hand was pledged in marriage. So closely has her virtue been guarded, she’s never been permitted a beau—has never even flirted with a man. However, after a chance encounter with a dashing rogue who sets her pulse and imagination cavorting, Mayra initiates a scheme that’s sure to force her affianced to call off their union. 

The laird who must make her his at all cost. 

Until Logan Rutherford, Laird of Lockelieth Keep, inherited a near bankrupt estate, he had no intention of wedding the lass he was betrothed to as a wee lad. Now he needs Mayra’s remaining dowry to save his beloved Lockelieth. However, before they exchange vows, he’s determined to know just what type of woman he’s reluctantly taking to wife. So he assumes his cousin’s identity; a decision that soon has him snared in a tangled web of deceit. 

Caution: This historical romance contains one rakish fiery-haired Scot accustomed to getting his own way, a lass who’s fed-up with men dictating her life, and stubborn gelding with a superior attitude. 

Buy this first installment in the Heart of a Scot series for a Highland adventure you won’t want to put down.

Can your betrothed actually be your true love?

When Logan lays his eyes on the woman he's been promised in marriage to since he was a child, he can't help but fall fast for the intelligent and gorgeous lady. There's just one problem, though. Well, really two problems. First, Mayra doesn't know who he really is since he foolishly lied about his name. And two? His affianced desperately wants to call off their betrothal so she can marry the man he's pretending to be. Yikes.

Mayra hates the idea of marrying a complete stranger. So much that she's written the laird on several occasions over the years, begging him to end their betrothal. All of her letters have gone unanswered, much to her dismay. And when a handsome young man catches her eye in the village, she can't help but to imagine a life free to marry the charmer. When she learns the truth of his identity, will she still wish to marry the man she's tried so hard to separate herself from?

While this was a pretty short story, I really enjoyed it. No, it didn't have a lot of meat to it since the majority of the couple's interactions could be condensed to two or three chapters. There is a lot of wordy internal dialogue to get through, but the characters were surprisingly endearing. Even when Logan was pretending to be his cousin, I found him to be genuine in every other way. 

I thoroughly liked the both of them. And I found Mayra to be a likable heroine. There isn't much of a plot as the romance here is the real story. And it's clean, with only a kiss or so which still left me smiling. The ending was cute and made me chuckle. I could have easily read a longer book with this couple.

In closing...
I wonder what's in store for Logan's cousin. His story is next. Four suns!
