For years, Sir Gavin Patrick, has been fighting in France. Ready to finally go home, he is tasked with transporting Lady Marie Colette to her fiancee in Scotland. Thinking it an easy task, Gavin is shocked to see what all the woman plans to take with her. Not being able to talk her out of it, they begin their journey to the port where they will meet their ship.
Marie Colette thought she was doing her duty to go to the highlands and marry her fiancee. She didn't count on being attacked, finding a bunch of orphans or having to get married just to get out of France. Planning to get the marriage annulled when they reached Scotland, Marie and Gavin try to keep their distance from one another, but their attraction for one another is too strong.
What happens at the end out their journey and Marie is presented to her fiancee?
I so wanted to like this book. The storyline intrigued me, but I absolutely did not like Marie Colette. She killed it for me. I did really like Gavin, but wish Forester had a different woman in mind for him...
