I liked this one. There's a touch of mystery and the romance has a nice, slow build to it. It's also a Family Secrets-type of story, which I tend to like (I blame too many Gothics as a teen), but can lend to frustration. There were moments where I kept hoping the hero would start shaking secondary characters senseless demanding they tell him the truth. It requires patience on the part of the reader, and yes - we get our answers in the end. A good holiday read without being overwhelming with the ...more

Oh my GOSH, I loved this book. Jacob and Isabel were both so well written and completely compelling. Other people have summarized the plot, so I don't feel the need to do that here, but let me say that I was completely sucked in.

I got this as part of the SuperRomance pack and was reading them while killing time waiting for my husband. he was delayed, so I finished the first book and figured I'd start Scotland for Christmas and probably get a few pages in while I waited. I ended up making him wa

Jacob Ross is a Secret Service officer eager to work the Presidential detail. He can't unless he can convince the psychologist assessing him that he's come to terms with the death of his father when Jacob was a small child.

Isabel Sage could be the key to filling in the holes in what Jacob knows. Her cousins were kidnapped and the victims Jacob's dad tried to rescue when he was killed. But Jacob doesn't tell her that. Instead, he arranges to be her driver and protective detail when she needs to g

Jacob and Isobel are both ambitious, he's aspiring to guard the president while she aspires to be CEO of her family business. Each sees the other as a means of achieving their dream, but their growing feelings for one another complicates their future plans.

My favorite thing about Superomance books has always been that their length allows the author to explore beyond the romance a bit, and that was my favorite thing here as well, Jacob and Isobel's strained interactions with their families along

I read the first in this series, THE SWEETEST HOURS by Cathryn Parry and loved it. This was equally as good. It was nice to get a glimpse of the characters from the first book but this was still all about these new characters. The storyline was interesting, the characters well developed and the emotion enough to make me tear up a time or two. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Now I can't wait until we get to the see the third book about a character we met in the first two. It will take some fancy footwor ...more

I received this book through Goodreads giveaways in exchange for my honest review of it.

I entered this giveaway for my mother, who loves these types of romance novels. I did not read the book because I, myself, do not like these types of books.

But she recently read it, and she asked me to give it a five star review.

She told me that she loved the characters, and that she was absolutely head over heels for the leading man. She said he was quote, unquote "her dream guy", which made me feel a little

It's only the second month of the year, but I think this is going to be one of my top, maybe even my top favorite book this year. It ticks all the boxes for me. A contemporary Scotland romance, a hero protector, an ambitious heroine, continuity, and a plot that kept me guessing how they'll end up together. It was a page turner for me. I'm looking forward to the next in the series. I really liked the first in the series, The Sweetest Hours, but this one I really love.

"An interesting storyline and nice chemistry make for a nice read. The attraction between Jacob and Isabel is clearly drawn, and his issues with his mother and stepfather and their refusal to discuss his biological father add nice depth" (RT Book Reviews, 4 stars).

Great story. Kind of expected it to take place in Scotland. It didn't, except for the last part of the book. Loved both main characters.
