Publisher's Summary

A fugitive Highlander. 

A proper English lady. 

A dangerous liaison. 

Alec Mackenzie knows Lady Celia is key to finding his missing brother. The trouble is, Alec is supposed to be dead, and he needs the world to keep believing that. 

The artful ways of Alec Mackenzie. 

Alec will do anything to find his brother, Will, including pretend to be a penniless drawing master to London aristocrats. The one man who might know where his brother is being held is a powerful duke, and that duke has daughter who needs art lessons.... 

Lessons can lead to startling revelations....

Lady Celia is intrigued by the Scotsman, so obviously a warrior who pretends he is not. She's also intrigued by his instruction on painting the human form, something no young lady should take an interest in. But Celia, ruined by The Disaster and already beyond hope, dares to let the Highlander teach her all he knows.... 

Note: Alec Mackenzie is the brother of Malcolm from The Stolen Mackenzie Bride. He is an ancestor of the Mackenzie family whose story begins with The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie.

4.5 Stars I Love the Mackenzies

I couldn't wait for this book to come out. I love JA books regarding the MacKenzie family. It's like reading about old friends, especially since Ian and Beth are part of the story. I agree that the streaminess does not match the book about Ian or Cameron, however, the story holds your attention as you wonder what will happen next. I am looking forward to the story about Will.

I always enjoy Angela Dawe.

Not as hot and steamy as her previous books

I enjoyed the book with all the intrigue and mystery. But I missed all the hot and steamy sex
scenes as she had in her previous books. It was the last three hours of the book that I enjoyed the most. A lot of the first few hours could have been shortened. I am hoping the next book about Will will have more steam. But with the same excitement and suspense.
