Publisher's Summary

Lisa Berne's Penhallow Dynasty series continues as a Highlander marries against his will - and discovers he may have found the perfect bride.

Alasdair Penhallow, laird of his clan and master of Castle Tadgh, is forced to end his carefree bachelorhood thanks to an ancient decree that requires him to marry. But Alasdair's search for a biddable wife comes to a screeching halt when Fate serves up Fiona Douglass. Prickly as a thistle, Fiona challenges him at every turn, rendering herself surprisingly irresistible. Her love would be a prize indeed...if Alasdair could accept it.

Fiona gave her heart once and doesn't plan to repeat that folly. Yet she finds herself drawn to Alasdair's intelligence and strength, and the passion he incites goes well beyond her expectations for what's only a marriage of expedience. Despite herself, she's falling in love with her husband.

But there's a high wall between them - and Fiona's not sure it can ever be torn down.

Quick & Witty Highland Romance

Very enjoyable 2nd book from a new author. I bought this book and the first book in the series on the recommendation of author Cathy Maxwell and was not disappointed! The writing style is quick and witty and the heroine is an older independent lass not afraid to speak her mind. Marvelous! Recording is wonderful.

I loved it!

Ok, not a story about the same old boy marries girl, where they can't stop thinking, lusting or having great love making every chance they get. This is a story about leaning to love and accepting you're good enough for love. The story is set in the eighteen hundreds however, the genius of the writer allows for all to relate no matter what century it is. I thought the story was refreshing, a believable everyday senecio that kept me on the edge of wanting the the main characters to fall in love. I gave a 5 star because I appreciated the writers realistic approach.
