Publisher's Summary

Lady Ainsley Matthews, heiress and darling of the ton, was expected to make a magnificent match. Instead, she's hiding on a remote Scottish estate, terrified her vicious former fiance will use her pregnancy to force her into marriage. One man can help her - Royal Kendrick, son of a distinguished Highland clan. Though a mistake drove them apart long ago, Royal is the only person Ainsley trusts to protect her baby - even if that means agreeing to never see either of them again....

Scarred in body and soul by war, Royal suddenly has a purpose - caring for an innocent babe and thereby helping the woman he can't stop loving. But when Ainsley ultimately returns to Scotland, determined to be a real mother to her child in spite of the risk, there's only one solution: marriage. And only one likely outcome: surrendering to the desire that's simmered between them for so long, no matter how dangerous it may be....

Contains mature themes.

This was a great book but...

I really enjoyed this book as it had a lot of passion , romance, humor and thrilling moments of uncertainty and danger. Only one thing drive me crazy was the repetitive bickering and banter. It overwhelmed the book at times because It was mostly about the same thing.

Female lead so despicably selfish!

I can’t remember disliking a character more! The female lead is selfish, demanding, wildly inconsiderate, and ungrateful. The accommodations (not a strong enough word) the male lead makes to be at her service feel more like weakness and dysfunction than love and devotion. The plot was refreshing but the relationship it forged felt more like a tragedy, even if the resolution (which I could not make it to) was meant to be a good outcome, it could not possibly negate the terrible patterns of their relationship. This is the opposite of romance.

Too boring for words

There is no romance, there is however endless whining from the supposed heroine and endless suffering from the hero. About waste of a credit.
