3.5+ Stars

If Harper Fox was writing a piece for the Scotland Tourism Board, this would be a 5 star read. The landscape of the story is gorgeous and the writing made me feel a bit like I was floating. I will see Seacliff in my dreams.

Fox then takes this beauty and lets it overflow into the relationship she builds between Nichol and Cameron. Oh yes, there were gracefully written bits…especially some of the powerful yet tender, almost painfully romantic moments between the MC’s. A treat.

i enjoyed this book a lot, i have a thing for the brogue so that was icing on the cake. (the cherry would have a been the MC's wearing a kilt every now and then but no book is perfect :P )

on a serious note, this was a really good book. solid, sweet, funny, sad and oh so sexy.
