Publisher's Summary

To win the woman destined to be his bride...

Catherine Depford is the wealthiest heiress in London, and she is all but promised to a proper English lord...so why is she having dreams of a Scottish warrior claiming her for his own? She can't imagine that her heated fantasies would come true, until she locks eyes with the stranger of her dreams in a crowded ballroom.

A Scotsman will do anything.

Highland chief Gabriel MacBraedon has come to London in search of Catherine, the woman an ancient curse dictates to be his bride. But he can't very well sweep the English beauty into his arms and carry her off to Scotland in the dead of night. Or can he? Nothing is impossible when a Scotsman's passion is making the rules.

Night before?

Ok, so the name is not exactly correct.... and.... there are some mixed up series of events (or of emotions and realizations) that a good editor should have caught.... and no one listened when I scolded them.... and maybe the narration wasn't quite comfortable.... but this was still good entertainment! I truly enjoy Debra Mullins, and liked the use of a curse driving the story.
I'd buy it again.

So frustrating that I couldn’t finish

This was an interesting premise, I think, and I’m always a fan of a touch of the magical. Unfortunately, though the first chapters were promising, the story—and in particular the hero Gabriel—became quite irritating and frustrating by 1/3 of the way through. He is extremely high handed, seems overly entitled and makes assumptions and expectations about the heroine that are unreasonable and presumptive. In short, he is very unlikeable and very inconsiderate. He is constantly resentful of the heroine and excuses his constant pestering of her with the fact that his people are suffering, but never stops to consider why the heroine, who has never been to Scotland and knows nothing of the people or the curse, should give up the life she wanted just to save strangers who’ve never done anything for her.

Quite a shame, because like I’ve said, the story premise had promise.
