About the Author
Karen Ranney wanted to be a writer from the time she was five years old and filled her Big Chief tablet with stories. People in stories did amazing things and she was too shy to do anything amazing. Years spent in Japan, Paris, and Italy, however, not only fueled her imagination but proved she wasn't that shy after all.
Now a New York Times and USA Today bestseller, she prefers to keep her adventures between the covers of her books. Karen lives in San Antonio, Texas.

I like the first part of this story very much, where Douglas and Sarah begin to get to know each other. Douglas is an unusual man in stories like this in that he's fairly passive, allowing Sarah to live her life as she wishes and not pushing her into anything new until she is ready for it.
I felt the second half of the story wasn't as successful, with the action moving briefly to Scotland (although many of the scenes there felt a bit odd) and then a short spell in London with a danger/rescue plot that never felt convincing.
And the title of this book? It has a scottish feel with a tartan on the front cover but our Scottish hero, who shows almost no trace of his Scottish birth, becomes the Laird four pages from the end - and rather out of the blue. This isn't a Scottish book for those who enjoy that side of the novel, it's more of an English Country House story, although with the usual Americanisms to grate at times. Neither character felt particularly convincing, the settings and side characters also felt a little wooden. This was an OK read but nothing to get excited about.

slowly. There was only one thing that kept my interest.
Therefore, I had to finish the book.
Douglas Eston believed his invention would be profitable.
He went to see the Duke of Herridge, if he would be one
of his investors. The Duke agreed, with one stipulation
if Douglas would marry his daughter Lady Sarah.
Douglas and Lady Sarah are the main character.
They were totally opposites. Lady Sarah didn't have
any physical chemistry for Douglas until the end of
the story. Lady Sarah was a cold dignified person
throughout the book. I liked Douglas he's warm kind
and gentle with lots of patience for Lady Sarah.
I do recommend Karen Ranney other books. I enjoyed
reading they were excellent.
