This is the fourth book in The Highlanders of Balforss series. I have not read the other three in the series, but this is not an issue as each book can be read as a standalone.
Louisa Robertson has infuriated her father for the last time. After he catches her acting on stage, he announces that he has arranged for her to be married and she is to be escorted to America to meet her groom. Loiusa has no plans to marry and hatches a plan with her maid to trade places the only problem her father has enlisted an escort for her for the journey.
Ian Sinclair is desperate to receive a new commission, and when he receives word the General is looking for him he believes his luck has come in. Unfortunately the General is not offering him a commission; instead he wants him to escort the General’s daughter to America. Ian is reluctant, but he finds the lady in question does not live up to her reputation. It’s the companion that is a hellion and sparks fly between the two. What will happen when he discovers the truth?
This was an enjoyable read with compelling characters and developed at a fast pace. Loiusa is an intriguing character who longs to escape the bonds that are placed on her by virtue of her position. She wants to live life on her own terms and refuses to allow anything to deter her.
I received an arc of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
