Jenny was one of the bravest heroine I've ever met. She had brain. But she was also a bit naive, she trusted her father too much, while he didn't even deserve it. He tried to sold her off to other highlander clan, to strengthen his own force. He only saw her as a commodity, not a daughter.
My heart broke for Royce when Jenny mad with him, for the right cause actually. He accidentally killed her brother, when he had promised her not to injured any of her family. And to redeem it, he didn't fight off her family and clan when they had a chance. Jenny didn't know that Royce didn't fight them, she thought he fought them like usual. And when she finally knew that Royce was dying, she cried for the first time. She didn't cry when her best friend and her brother died, because her father told her that Merrick didn't cry. She showed her loyalty to Royce, and cut off her relationship with her family and her country, the Scandinavia....more

Hilarious! Anyway, the story started from our hero, Alexander MacLean, who wanted to avenge his brother to Caitlyn, our heroine. The problem was told in the previous book, it seemed when Caitlyn wanted to trap Alexander to propose her, something happened and it was her twin and his brother who needed to marry instead. Even though his brother was happy with his marriage, he still kept some grudges towards Caitlyn. He intended to embarrass her in front of everyone. So he asked for his ex's help, to invite Caitlyn into her party. Unaware of Alexander's plot, Caitlyn was happy because she finally could be out after three months being punished.
When she finally came to the party, she soon learned that Alexander was also there. The obvious attraction was still there and both tried to resist that. Guilty, she came to Alexander to say that she knew he still mad about their sibling's marriage. She then offered a bet. They need to fulfill each other's three terms based on the old local myth. If she won, she wanted Alexander to propose her in front of everyone with the possibility of her accepting just to make him mad. And if he won, he wanted her to be her mistress openly in public for two full weeks. And then the fun began.
The story was very good and the process of them fulfilling each other's terms were so hilarious! But unfortunately, the ending fell a bit rushed and short. Maybe if Ms. Hawkins extended it a bit more, it would be better. The age gap was also a bit too large for my taste, though that was just a minor issue....more

I didn't enjoy her previous works, The Dangerous Gentleman and The Ruthless Charmer, because of too much angst. This book is lighter, but still have an awesome plot.
I really could feel the chemistry between them and were so lovable. Arthur, was so willing to do anything to be together with Kerry, even giving up his identity and life as an English aristocrat. He was so charming, gentle and loving. Meanwhile, Kerry was a hardworking woman. She worked all her life to support the clan while her husband was laying sick. Not even once she complained about her hard life. She always smiled heart-fully and did her best. She was the most admirable heroine I've encountered.
I'm waiting for the last story of Rogues of Regent Street series. I hope it'd be as good as this one...more
