In 1685 in the Scottish Highlands Cat Campbell cannot forget Nathaniel Worthington, fifth Viscount of Lincolnshire or the kiss they shared nearly a year ago. With her connections to the Highland Roses School where Nathaniel’s sisters instruct women in reading, writing and more she cannot avoid him.
Nathaniel cannot forget the Scottish lass who healed him months ago or the searing kiss they shared, but he knows they can never be together, his father’s will is explicit, he will lose everything if he does not marry a suitable woman. When a summons arrives for Cat from Queen Catherine demanding Cat’s presence in London Nathaniel finds himself volunteering to be her escort.
When the pair find themselves in the centre of danger and intrigue they cannot resist their growing attraction, but secrets have a way of revealing themselves, and when trust is lost it’s hard to get it back.
This is not a time period I typically read, I prefer Regency and Victorian settings, but this was an okay read. This book is part of a series, but it can be read as a standalone. I will not be sticking with the series, but this book is an excellent read for people who do enjoy the time period.
I received an arc of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
