Book Description

16 Feb 2004
On leave from his Highland regiment, Captain Liam Lockhart comes to London on an urgent mission: to repossess the stolen family heirloom that could save his ancestral estate. He never dreamed it would involve surrendering his heart. But the beautiful and scandalous socialite Ellen Farnsworth sets his Highland blood aflame with a will as strong and reckless as his own. Though bound to Liam by a soul-searing passion, duty impels Ellen to commit a terrible betrayal. Now, driven by passion, pride, and vengeance that know no bounds, this fearsome Highlander will reclaim not only his family's ancient treasure, but the one daring woman he was meant to love for all time.

First Sentence
In and around Loch Chon, they would talk for many years of how the fair Lady of Lockhart laughed like a madwoman when her husband hanged her lover-on the very eve of her date with the executioner's ax. Read the first page

4.0 out of 5 stars Highlander 5 April 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Very interesting start to this book with covering the history of "family heirloom" and really setting the theme of the book and the series.

Liam comes across like a bull in a china shop when he reaches London and you can definitely can tell that he has been the in army from some of the things he does. When he meets Ellen a softer side comes out of him and get to see the real him. Ellen has had to go through a lot in her life and it affects her living her life. With Liam she starts to have some fun and feel special but she has to think about her future and soon gets on the wrong side of Liam. Liam feels the betrayal deeply and can not let Ellen get away with it and soon follows her to right the wrong she has done to him.

It gets very passionate between the pair and even after the betrayal Liam stills feels for Ellen but he is hurt too much and Ellen can't get her heart go when she has important things to look after.

Interesting love story and a start of another good series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet and funny - Cleverly written 16 Feb 2008
By Orion - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I seem to have the minority opinion on this one, but I just loved this book. I think it is the writing style that appealed to me most. It is droll and understated. I much prefer this kind of dry humor over the overly-dramatic or cringe-worthy slapstick you find in so many romance novels. I also thought the plot was unusual and well done.

Liam is a simple man with simple needs, which are not being met. He endures uncomfortable travel, foul food, unruly children, and wacky Englishmen, all with good humor and letters home to his mom. He is on a quest to steal an item, which his family may or may not have a rightful claim of ownership to. His plan is to ingratiate himself with his English relatives, then sneak around in their house in the dead of night, and take the item away and hope they don't notice.

Ellie is isolated and unhappy. She is doing her best for her only child, and makes a few bad decisions. She is not a perfect person, but anyway the ethics are hazy... is it wrong to steal stolen property? Probably. But if you are going to do it, at least do it competently, and more than once if necessary, and get away with it cleanly. By outsmarting Liam, Ellie became his equal, which is a lot more satisfying than a simple story about a burly Scottsman rescuing a damsel in distress.

But in the end, it is the clear voice of the author that kept me reading. I have just added Julia London to my list of favorite authors. This book is just great.

3.0 out of 5 stars Slow and never really gets off the ground 9 Mar 2005
By P. Kelsey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I read a lot of historical romances. Perhaps I want to much out of a book, but this book left me wanting for a lot of things; Like characters to like and an interesting plot.

It's not that it's a horrible book, it's just not very good. I thought Liam was a little whiney and wimpy for a hero and Ellie just never made me care if she ever found love or not. I did like Nettie, but then I have a soft spot for kids.

If you are looking for a slow easy read, then perhaps this is your book. If you want witty conversation and chemistry look elsewhere.

2.0 out of 5 stars Highlander Confused 24 April 2006
By Amanda Carlson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Having been my first London read, I'm terribly disappointed. I wanted to like Ellie and Liam, but their storyline was too tragically provincial. There was no grand action, no real struggle for the beastie, just a seemingly incongrous character shift on Ellie's part that left me confused, not intrigued.

On a high note, the "Prologue" was wonderfully descriptive and drew the reader into the sordid tale of the beastie. I wanted to hear more about the folklore.

Although I don't want to disregard London altogether, I'm hesistant pick up another, and I will most certainly disregard the second novel in the series as Grif all ready seems to be a fop destined to waste his familial money (once they find the beastie).

Tread carefully . . .

2.0 out of 5 stars Not very interesting. 28 April 2004
By Romance Lover - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I expected a lot of this book, because this author is normally very good. I was disappointed by the thin plot line, lack of depth in the characters, and the repetitive prose (if Liam referred to Ellen as an "angel" one more time, I was going to scream). Although there was adequate background on Ellen, we never really understood what made Liam tick. The author repeatedly referred to the fact that he was a soldier, as if that completely explained who he was. This is so different from this author's "Regent Street" series, where her male characters are described very thoroughly and eloquently. I hope the next books in the series will improve.

1.0 out of 5 stars Authors, please stop insulting our intelligence... 24 July 2005
By Holly Golightly - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I wanted to like this book; The hero was fairly appealing - at least he wasn't "impossibly handsome" as most romance novel heroes are described. However, there were just too many things wrong with this story. First of all, does the heroine not have any idea where her child is? How does Natalie manage to spend so much time alone with Liam, a strange man? That seems odd. Second, how does Ellen just jump into bed with Liam with such abandon, becoming a major nympho after 9 years of seclusion from the world. I can see where she might want some companionship, but after all, this is SUPPOSED to be regency England. Isn't she the least bit worried about the possibility of getting pregnant? I mean, that's the reason she was in her predicament to begin with. And finally, the manner in which she leaves Liam when she leaves to steal the "beastie". Unbelievable. Don't waste your time on this one...
