Patricia cabot, now known as 'Meg Cabot' has done a brilliant job!
This was the second of her books under the pen name Patricia Cabot, which I read and enjoyed every page. Unlike her adult books such as the Queen of Babble series, this differs as it contains intense romantic scenes - which are very well written.
The story is about Emma who elopes with the male protaganist's cousin, Stuart, to the Scottish highlands. Staurt is a bore while James you will certainly love! James is the male protaganist, an Earl, who goes up from London to Scotland to retrieve Stuart's body after he dies. He surprisingly finds Emma there as he assumed that she was back in London.
Through the book, Cabot takes the reader on a journey of secrets, apprehension, confusion, exasperation, romance and love. The reader (well I), came to adore James's character as he cares so much for Emma. And Emma is an endearing character as the reader can identify with her aspirations.
This book has it all! Buy and enjoy!
