This one is being reviewed out of order because it was only just released on Tuesday, June 26, and I didn't wait to wait to read it. I've been hoping for a good story for Aulay since we met him in The Highlander Takes a Bride and he showed up in subsequent books.
I was happy with this story for the most part. There were some...secrets being kept that I think bordered on problematic with the hero not telling the heroine the truth. Had Jetta known from the start what the deal was, things would have been different. Still, points for it never being Aulay's idea to lie to her, and for having a relatively decent reason for continuing it. (Better than most books).
I think this probably the last book in the series only because we're out of the women from To Marry a Scottish Laird and the Buchanan brothers didn't strike me as romantic leads, but I guess we'll find out. A solid entry in the series.
So I think the secret about Jetta's identity (and that she was not Aulay's wife) was dragged out a bit more than I would have liked. Jetta took the news pretty well, but Aulay probably should have fought harder to be honest earlier in the book. It just started to cross lines of consent for me -- I know Jetta was an active participant, but her consent was not as informed as I'd want.
Still, Lynsay Sands handled it about as well as you'd hope in a Medieval Scottish romance, so I'm not going to harp on it, and it wouldn't stop be from reading it again.
