I read lots of romance novels and I, almost, never review them. They all have the same plot line, boy meets girl, they experience conflicts, they resolve their conflicts, and they live happily ever after.
I love reading romance or I wouldn't read so many. I crave the happy endings. But every once in a while there is a novel that has something different. That sets it apart from the others. This is one of those books. There is a special engaging quality that drew me in. I fell in love with the hero, a modern-day Scots warrior. I could identify with the heroine and with the experience in her life that had caused her to hold herself apart. The time reading this novel was the sweetest hours.
