Publisher's Summary

Declan Sinclair is a Highlander who believes his dreams never lie. When he spots Caya at a public house, he knows instantly she is the woman in his dreams - his future wife. Though her brother had promised never to gamble again, he engages Declan in a card game - and the prize is the lovely Caya.

Caya Pendarvis has no time for childish things like dreams or fairy tales or love. She's the sacrificial lamb on her way to the far north of Scotland to wed a wealthy merchant in exchange for settling her brother's gambling debts.

Winning at cards is one of the many things Declan Sinclair does well. Unfortunately, the ability to court a woman - a talent he lacks - is the only skill he desperately needs to win Caya's heart.

Wonderful series!!!

I absolutely fell in love with DeClan and Caya! Her brother and his problem with gambling is what initially brings the two together but the trials that the two face with each other is what keeps them together. Such a wonderful series I can’t wait for the next.

Didn't like the heroine

I loved the narrator and the story was good...except the heroine really strained my patience. Too tentative and didn't stand up for herself at all.

conflicts

I personally do not like the constant conflict between the two main characters.
I love each character individually but again the back and forth conflict that go on between the two of them is bit much. I had the same concern with book 1.

It starts slowly but keep reading

This book was so slow and boring in the beginning i almost stop listening and started another book but decided to continue on for a bit. So glad I did because it got much better and it was funny, a bit sappy and then very sweet. I’m about to start book 2 now

Love Declan

Sweet but not hot . That’s okay though, I enjoyed it. Like some of the other reviews it started a bit slow but not too long, loved Declan and the characters from previous book. I laughed out loud at certain points ( won’t reveal but you’ll find out ) I’m still laughing about it. Any who enjoyable read and of course the narrator was fabulous always. On to next in the series

Stupid girl, but she’s so sorry

The heroine is a very stupid girl at over 25. She was very frustrating and made very stupid decisions. She tries to save her brother, even after he sells her, then loses her in a bet. He’s gambled all their money and her mother’s ring, lied constantly and is a mean drunk. Later he hits her and she still tries to save him after discovering he’s a murderer. Then decides to leave the people who have accepted her to find and save him.
I hope the next book is better.

Tedious

The information about this book made it sound really interesting, with quite a different plot line, and it could have been a great story but I found both the writing and the narration VERY tedious and I struggled to finish it. The narrator really does not do male voices well, making the the ‘hero’ of the story sound awful.
