Product description

From the Back Cover

The woman who will one day wear Richard Lynsted's ring will be genteel, dainty, and well-bred.

This eliminates Grace MacEachin on all three counts. A hellion of the first order, the alluring, infuriating woman would be nothing more than a passing temptation to an upstanding gentleman like Richard—if it weren't for the fact that she's trying to blackmail his father!

Or, as Grace sees it, trying to get justice—and maybe just the slightest hint of revenge on the family that tore her life asunder when she was just a girl. And as for Lynsted, well, the stuffy, humorless man wouldn't suffer for time spent in company more exciting than that of his company ledgers. Only when Richard gets Grace alone, she discovers he may know a thing or two about excitement after all . . .

About the Author

Cathy Maxwell spends hours in front of her computer pondering the question, "Why do people fall in love?" It remains for her the great mystery of life and the secret to happiness. She lives in beautiful Virginia with children, horses, dogs, and cats.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This story has an unusual hero - a rather stuffy, humorless man who looks for the approval of his father in most of his actions. Mind you, the heroine, Grace MacEachin, is rather unusual too, being an actress; she is also hoping to win her father's approval after he was falsely accused of embezzlement; she believes that if she clears his name, they can have a good relationship again.

Unfortunately for Grace to clear her father's name she has to blacken Richard Lynsted's father and uncle's reputations and Richard doesn't want that. He agrees to travel with Grace to Scotland to interview his father to get to the truth. However their journey isn't without incident and the more time they spend together, the more other things seem important.

I enjoyed most of the story, although I did find certain aspects rather unbelievable. The pacing was reasonable and the interactions between hero and heroine mostly believable, but I did feel that the actual plot didn't always work very well, particularly with regard to Richard's understanding of his father and uncle's actions.

5.0 out of 5 stars You want Romance? It is spelled Cathy Maxwell! 23 Dec. 2013
By Book Maven - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Richard only cared about the books and machinations of the family business. He was good at it. He had turned a moderately successful business into a very successful business. But an actress called the Scottish Songbird was threatening all that he held dear, and he was going to stop her. Upon his confrontation of her, she asked him to at least hear her father's side of the secret that could destroy his family. To do this, he would have to agree to go to Inverness, Scotland. Well, he had always wanted an adventure, so he agreed to travel to Scotland with this very intriguing woman, Grace, who was the toast of the London stage. Little did he know, Richard would never be the same, again.

Ms. Maxwell takes us on an adventure, also. There are tears, there is fun. We laugh and we are afraid. There is great sex and there are many scenes that challenge our views. We are not the same after this tale of intrigue either. Ms. Maxwell challenges us, the reader, at every turn. This author hands you a fully developed plot and very interesting characters. One thing I know is that when I pick up a Cathy Maxwell book, I had better have a clear schedule, because I will not be able to stop until the end! Now, excuse me, but I must be on to the next book in Ms. Maxwell's Scandals and Seductions Series.

Very enjoyable road trip romance.

When a London actress accuses the heroes father of being a heartless embezzler who destroyed her father, the virtuous virgin hero wants to prove her wrong. This sets the virgin and the actress on s road trip romance where they both learn not to judge by appearance.

They grow. They learn. They both find some disillusionment as well as cause for new faith.

Very enjoyable. Great couple. Nice ending.

True love truly exists. This is a wonderfully delightful story of two characters each so full of pride that they have to learn the truth about love. You are enthralled from beginning to end. It is the type story girls dream about no matter their age.
