Sigimor Cameron, a Highland Laird, goes to England to help Peter Gerard, an Englishman who saved his life years ago. But when Sigimor and his clansmen arrive at Drumwich Castle, it's too late: ...more
Jolene, no matter how petite and delicate she looked, she gave back as good as she got - and then some. The more I read, the more proud of her I became. She made tough decisions, decisions I would never want to make. She had a backbone, didn't take crap from anyone, stood up for herself and listened to her common sense when arguing wouldn't solve anything. She is a female character one can admire without feeling guilty.
And Sigimor... (sigh) ...more
There are many books that follow this with other members of the Cameron family and Sigimor appears in and out of them. He's still a riot!

Lady Jolene is a great heroine. She isn’t used to roughing it but doesn’t complain. She just puts on her big girl panties and deals with it all. I loved how selfless she is because she was willing to sacrifice love for her nephew. She is a tiny little thing but has no problem going toe to toe with Sigimor.
Sigimor is a very loyal man. He cares for his family deeply no matter how close they are related to him. While he didn’t have much of a choice to help Jolene, he went above and beyon ...more
The intrigue is silly and didn't do much for me, but their relationship was entertaining and fun to read about.
Jolene rescues Sigimor and several of his men from a dungeon in a castle in England. Jolene is an English lass, small in stature with fair skin and dark hair. Sigimor has always been attractive to more buxom and tall women. He is well over 6 feet, but he soon learns he desires this pretty English rose, ...more
Was a wonderful book
I really enjoyed the first of this series. The main characters were both interesting and fun. Serious trials they had to overcome but this book still held romance and even some great humor. Looking forward to continuing the next in the Cameron legacy.
