A young widow puts her sexy suitors to the test in New York Times best-selling author Julia London's scintillating return to the idyllic Scottish Highlands.
Widowed and forced to remarry in three years' time or forfeit her son's inheritance, Daisy Bristol, Lady Chatwick, has plenty of suitors vying for her hand - and her fortune. But a letter from a long-lost love sends Daisy and her young son to her Scottish Highland estate to buy time for his return. Along the way she encounters the powerful Cailean Mackenzie, laird of Arrandale and a notorious smuggler, and she is utterly - though unwillingly - bewitched.
Cailean has no use for any Sassenach in his glen. But Daisy's brazen, flirtatious nature and alluring beauty intrigue him. When her first love appears unexpectedly at her estate, Cailean knows that a passionate woman like Daisy cannot marry this man. And to prevent the union, Cailean must put his own life at risk to win her heart.

Highland love affair.
Daisy Bristol, Lady Chatwick, who although widowed was still under her husband's thumb, so to speak. In his will he gave her 3 years to remarry or lose her fortune and her son's inheritance. With only one year left she leaves London traveling to her hunting lodge in the Scotland Highlands to try to help her ailing son, not believing his London doctor's prognosis, and to get away from fortune hunters. She is strong willed and independent.
I liked the banter between Daisy and her neighbor the powerful Cailean Mackenzie, laird of Arrandale, and the scenes where she tries unsuccessfully to get the laird to kiss her.
Several, my emotions were involved throughout the story. That's why I couldn't stop listening to it.
It's a fast paced book for the most part, very well written and narrated.I highly recommend it to all Historical Romance lovers.
