Another book with a verra sexy yet troubled Laird, I can't get enough of 'em! This was an entertaining read, although it wasn't something that WOWed me. Arran, although he did annoy me by being too overbearing at times, was pretty swoonworthy, and Bree, again, although she had a few moments that peeved me, was a likable character. The romance between them was surprisingly sweet, but they were still had plenty of sexual chemistry going on and the sex scenes were hot.
Also mentioned quite frequently in this books were the politics of the time. Although I do like the book to have a sense and feel of the time it is set in, it didn't seem necessary to add that level of detail and to involve the characters as much as it did, perhaps I wouldn't have felt this way if the way the political climate was explained wasn't quite so dry, it was all long conversations inwhich I felt my eyes start to glaze over until it got back to the Bree and Arran parts.
But, this book also had a secondary romance! I love secondary romances, although it didn't get very much page time, it still made an impression and their HEA was important to me as well.
A good read, especially if you like Scottish romances and sexy arrogant Lairds, however, it isn't a book that sticks out for me in this genre.
