Book Description

April 2002 Sherring Cross

It was to be a great adventure for Melissa MacGregor - an escape from the wilds of her Scottish home into the world of the London Season. There she hopes to find a suitable husband who will not be intimidated by her sixteen uncles, six of whom are called Ian. But before she begins her pursuit of a new life, she encounters an intriguing stranger on her grandfather's lands.

Lincoln Ross Burnett, the seventeenth Viscount Cambury, once called Scotland his home, until as a boy of twelve he was sent away to London after his father's death, the subject of a bitter family feud. Now, as he roams the countryside of his youth, he still feels the bitterness of his exile - until he meets Melissa, and is struck by her beauty and liveliness. He pursues her to London, where even their shared passion may not be powerful enough to overcome the devastating hatred of those who have sworn his destruction...

2.0 out of 5 stars The Pursuit for Romantic Fiction 15 Jan 2003
By A Customer
- I am still looking for the romance in this book, I must have turned over 2 pages at once and missed it. It seemed to consist of an excuse to introduce 16 further male characters (the female character's brothers), with options for many follow-up books. I have bought every book by this author for almost 20 years, and was most disappointed. Quality writing but no connection between the main characters - they hardly even spoke to each other.

The hero and heroine know from page 1 that they want to be with each other forever but her family knew him when he was a headstrong child and think that he has an uncontrollable temper. They are concerned that he will hurt her and so go out of their way to test his control. And that is the story.
It is one of those irritatingly repetitive books with no humour, passion or character development and where the same anecdotes are repeated over and over again
Not worthy of the Lindsay name I'm afraid.

1.0 out of 5 stars I would give it less than 1 star... 20 Sep 2003
By A Customer
This romance is very boring, as the two main characters from the very beginning know they love eachother and then has to face why they can never marry - I did not really like them, the best part is that we meet Lachlan and Kimberley again - but then I hoped they would have had more than just 1 child. I cannot recommend this romance - It is the only Lindsay romance I have deposited in a thrash basket...

1.0 out of 5 stars Who wrote this? 20 Aug 2003
By Val Birbeck VINE VOICE
Do I really have to give this book a star rating ?
Was this really written by the same author as - A Pirate@s Love, Fires of Winter, Brave the Wild Wind, Once a Princess ... ? It had no sparkle, none of the sub-plots were developed, they just fizzled out. A great disappoinment. Usually I can't wait for her next book to be published, I have all of them - even the those not yet published in the UK - but I'll be much more discriminating in future, even (horror of horrors) borrowing from the local library rather then waste money (although I may buy them later if they are rereadable). I hoard books but this one I'd gladly give away !
