STORY: When Highland Hearts Collide…
Arabel Rowland was the laird’s daughter, courted by sons of dukes and as wild and untamed as the Highlands around her. Garrick McGuiness was nothing more than a penniless, nameless Scot working in the Rowland stables with nothing to offer but his heart. On the eve when they were to elope, Arabel is forced to make a decision that changes both of their lives—one that drives them apart for a decade.
Sparks Are Sure to Fly!
Ten years later, Garrick is now Earl of Townsend and surprised to receive word of an inheritance from the Rowlands—and simply stunned to learn that he must share that inheritance with the one woman he hoped never to see again. His plan is to fulfill the will’s requirement, take the money, and never return to Scotland again. But when the deadly secret that came between them is revealed, he finds himself experiencing the Highlands—and his feelings toward Arabel—in a way he never did before.
Fate tore them apart, but now he’s back in her life with status, money and a title. Can they let go of past hurts and find love?
REVIEW: I’ve read most of this authors books which are all a part of one series or another so I was glad to have a chance to read a stand-alone story from her.
This is a novella and not a full length novel so the reading went fast and I have to say enjoyable, despite the length.
One of my favorite romance tropes is the second chance in love stories and that’s exactly what this was. Arabel and Garrick epitomized a couple with too much baggage and a past neither could help putting it behind them.
If you’re a fan of strong and stubborn characters who fight their true feelings and try and overcome some misunderstandings, I think you’ll like this story.
