I remembered reading “The Highlander’s Choice” by Callie Hutton, the fifth book in the Marriage Mart Mayhem Series, with pleasure so when I had a chance to read this next in the series book, I jumped at the opportunity.
This story is set a year after the earlier novel, in 1817. The Duke of Manchester’s sister, Lady Sybil Lacey, married Laird Liam MacBride the previous year and is now expecting to give birth soon. Her twin sister, Lady Sarah Lacey, is trying to make her way to join and support her sister, accompanied by a much older maid, but the journey is fraught with misfortune, starting with her usual maid being unable to accompany her, then horrendous weather results in her carriage crashing, killing the two male servants escorting her and her maid – and that’s just the start of the calamities!
The young, handsome, genius, Professor Braeden McKinnon is travelling home with a colleague from his post at Edinburgh University when they encounter the two ladies by the side of the road. They ascertain that the carriage and servants are beyond help and agree to help the ladies to shelter in the next Inn. . . . and so the journey continues with many more disastrous problems, but you’ll have to read it yourself to discover what they are and how two people who both are determined not to marry end up accidentally married to each other!
The characters are well defined and easy to relate to. I really appreciated the appropriate use of Scottish dialect and terms but suspect these may prove difficult for some people. However, I couldn’t believe some aspects (especially the attitude of Lady Sarah to the possibility of being pregnant!) and it is a somewhat predicable tale but still a great one to escape into and a good addition to the series, though I confess to enjoying the earlier book considerably more.
Thanks to the author, publisher and NetGalley, too, for letting me read an ARC of this book in exchange for this, an honest review.

There is humor, emotion, an interesting story for the time period and characters from the series of related stories that add color to the tale.
I would recommend this to romance readers and intend to go read others from this series too!
Love the strong minded women that knows what they want and the poor men that think they have everything figured out!
Some books sends too much time on irrelevant details like pages full off scenery or descriptions of dresses or on love scenes that boarders on vulgar pornography.
This was not at all the case in these books, it moved at a fast pace and you never get to the part where in some books you just wish they get to the point of the story!
Very well done, I finished with the 1st book and are now onto the second and it is still quality writing!
