    Abandoned & Protected

    Enjoyed this book but again the proof reading is faulty! Built for build, sparing for sparring,tough for though, edged for etched......again poor job on someone's part & detrimental to over all "product"!

    Enjoyed very much

    I enjoyed this story very much. The reading was easy and the story flowed always eager to read what was on the next page / chapter. In the beginning I found Henrietta to be very trying and loved Connor from the start. But with help she outgrew her issues and if she reappears again, she and Connor will be a formidable team.

    Believable, sincere portrayal...

    Sometimes the waffling of a character's inner struggle simply comes across as whining and so, so, SO repetitive... that you wish they'd just get over it (get over themselves). This author's portrayal of Henrietta's inner struggles... wasn't. Rather it was believable, sincere, and I felt empathy with the character, not annoyance. This story is well-written and suspenseful... it left me wondering about the fate of Henrietta's brother, Tristan.... enough so, that I have pre-ordered Tristan's story, Betrayed and Blessed: The Viscount's Shrewd Wife (#6 in the series).

    Enjoyable Story

    It's lovely to find a romance without explicit sex. The story loses nothing because of it, and is enjoyable with enough tensions and action that I was involved until the end.

    A crown of beauty instead of ashes

    In this well written romance, there is tragedy, betrayal and healing. We previously met Hannah Turner as the embittered young woman who tried to turn her friend against her husband. She certainly didn't invite any sympathy at the time. However, as I have discovered in my years as a facilitator of support groups, the more angry and hurtful a person is, the more likely they are to have suffered trauma that goes so deep, even they don't always know the reason for it. Also highlighted in this book, even when people have survived the worst hell, many have developed survival skills that make them an asset to society, albeit difficult people to deal with. It is whilst practicing her skills that Connor comes upon her and decides there and then that he wants her as his wife. Instinctively Connor realises that Hannah would reject any proposal on his part and so goes straight to the source and arranges the marriage with her uncle. In the short term, Connor has to wonder at his wisdom, but with persistence he begins to demonstrate to Hannah that he can be trusted. Hannah, on the other hand, is seen as an outsider and usurper by Connor's Scottish clan, and when betrayal is set in motion, Hannah recognises that her heart has changed and she will do everything in her power to keep her husband. I loved Connor's character and was glad when Hannah began to let her anger and mistrust go, allowing members of her new family to get closer to her. The gentle building of the romance between Connor and Hannah meant that the protective layers around Hannah's heart began to dissolve. When faced with insurmountable odds, it was the skills that Hannah so diligently honed that saved the day. My only complaint with this book is that it ended with a cliff-hanger and unresolved issues, which is a personal source of irritation for me. I do realise however, that the way has been opened for Tristan's story.
