He’s the terror of the ton...
The plan is simple:
1. Descend from the Highlands to face the aggravation of a London Season;
2. Foist his wild sister off on some gullible English lord;
3. Retreat before the ladies of the scandalized ton can get any ideas.
Determined to see his hellion of a sister wed, Highlander Alexander Waters is willing to face anything—even the English. He just didn’t expect his own rough manners to cause such a riot…or for a blooming English rose to catch his eye.
Gently bred Catherine Middlebrook must find a respectable man to marry or her family will be ruined. She won’t allow herself to be distracted by Highland barbarians…no matter how her body may thrill whenever Alex is near.
Catherine wasn’t part of the plan, but as their battle of wills escalates, Alex comes to realize this “proper” English girl is as wild as the Highlands themselves...and nothing will stop him from having her.

I gave this book my best shot but unfortunately I was not able to complete this book. I tried, I really, really, really tried, but this book was just not for me.
This book sounds like a lot of fun when when I read it I did not believe the story at all. The Heroine was all over the place, and so was the Hero. What I'm trying to say is that the characters were not fully developed.
One minute they were described one way, but their actions said another. The only person who I believed in the book was the mother. She was a fully developed character since she never did anything that was out of character to her. You will see what I mean when you read this book.
Anther thing that got me about this book was the setting. To me, (seriously this is my own opinion, you are free to disagree as much as you want) the author does not understand historical settings all that much. Everything was so cliche and predictable and I could not really get excited about where they were.
It seems as if the author wanted to write a Historical Romance and did minimum research and wrote this book. I may not have enjoyed this book, but maybe you will. So try it and tell me your thoughts about it in the comments below.
