Duty versus honor. Jenna must marry well if she is to keep her promise to her father and claim her lands. She can't allow herself to be distracted. Niall is a third son and doesn't have what is needed to claim her. Working for her guardian he is assigned to watch over her. There have been attempts to kidnap her and when one succeeds it is up to him to rescue her.

There were parts of Jenna that I really liked. She is very loyal to her people and is willing to do whatever it takes to return home an

Such a sweet love story, of two people who are separated by status, but can not help that magnetic pull to one another, no matter how they try to deny it.
From the moment Jenna and Niall meet on the road, you feel the push and pull of emotion. One lead by duty, the other by honour, you can see where they would easily butt heads.
There is plenty of intrigue that goes along with this tale also, and if you like gentle romance that will whisk you away quickly with a HEA, then this book is for you.

Nach 45% war für mich Schluss. Das Buch trieft vor purple prose. Bsp.:

Champagnerbläschen gleich stieg heimliche Freude in ihr auf, und ihr wurde angenehm warm.

Und ich bin noch nicht einmal bei den Sexscenen angekommen. |schauder|

Ein wenig schwache/ faule Übersetzung kam mir vor
( z.B.(!):
Während Ms Preston während der nächsten Runde unentschlossen ihre Karten musterte, lehnte Mr McBane sich lässig zurück.

"fail" einfach mit "fehlen" übersetzt.) und Rechtschreibfehler gefunden.
Was mich aber am

Susan's review ( jan 11 , 2014 ) geeft goed weer wat ik van dit boek vond dus ik neem niet de moeite om een eigen review te schrijven .
Susan's review describes what I thought about this book so I won't bother with a review of my own .
Ik wil er alleen aan toevoegen dat ik het geen boek vind om los van de serie te lezen omdat er een soort van mysterie gaande is wat al begon in deel 1 en ongetwijfeld in het laatste 4e deel pas onthuld zal worden .
I just want to add that I don't think this is a book

A different kind of plot from any other historical romance I've read.

Niall Gilvrys and Lady Jenna--an unlikely pair and the story showed it
unlikely that they would wed. A very enjoyable story with flakey suitors,
an evil ruthless man, a gypsy and an old rector.

An easy read and one I enjoyed after reading some heavy old classics.

I won this book through a Goodreadd giveaway, I entered as I enjoy reading historical fiction. This book is a lovely quick, easy read with writing and dialogue that fits the era. It is a romantic story that is also full of adventure. If you like the genre of romance and historical fiction I can highly recommend this book.
