Graeme de Sowlis is a Scottish clan chief. He isn't interested in marriage after wanting to marry two women who ended up choosing to marry somebody else! He puts all his focus into keeping the peace between the English and Scottish living either side of the border. Recently there has been a lot of raids performed by the English, including one where a woman died. Graeme is determined to put a stop to them but has to find a way to do it where he doesn't end up breaking the fragile truce between the countries.
Gillian Bowman, an English woman, is being forced into a marriage by her father who needs her to marry in order to gain the money he needs to pay off his debts and keep the family estate. He doesn't want to use her as such but he has no choice. Gillian being a dutiful daughter will go along with his plan but isn't at all happy about it.
Graeme meets Gillian when he attends a May Day celebration at Kenshire Castle in England where Gillian lives. Her first sight of him is a shock because she catches him pleasuring a woman in the gardens. She can't look away, and he catches her watching. She can't keep what she saw out of her mind and while walking in the garden, later on, remembering what happened, she meets Graeme. This time on his own. There is an instant attraction between them and it isn't long until they are sharing a passionate kiss. Unfortunately, they are caught and Graeme being a gentleman offers to marry her. Gillian's father is fuming because his plans to marry her off to the old yet rich Earl have fallen by the wayside. Gillian although not wanting to marry anybody without being in love, at least acknowledges that she will be much happier with Graeme so doesn't resist his proposal at all.
What follows is the trials and tribulations the couple face in their new marriage. They definitely have a healthy lust for each other but Gillian wants more, could she find love with her husband? What of the truce between the Scottish and the English, can it be kept when it seems some are determined to bring the truce down? What of her father and the family home, will he end up losing it and if so, how will he cope with the loss?
There was definitely a lot going on with this story and every part of it was both exciting and in parts worrying. There was also a time when I just wanted to jump into the book and knock Gillian and Graeme's heads together to knock sense into them. They have such strong feelings for each other but won't even admit it to themselves let alone to each other. Do they get their happy ever after, will peace reign along the borders? You will have to read the book to find out. I promise you won't be disappointed. I enjoyed every moment of this story as I have every book in the series.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced readers' copy of this book.
This is part of a series and I would say that although each book is devoted to a different couple, there are secondary characters that appear in the story that contribute to the storyline that have had their story in previous books in the series.
Graeme de Sowlis and Gillian Bowman.
Graeme has had disappointment in marriage prospects and Gilliam is to be betrothed to an elderly man of financial benefit to her family.
Graeme was sweet and loyal but reluctant to make himself vulnerable and Gillian has had a reserved upbrnging always behaving to please her father.
I have marked it an arranged marriage because events lead them to get married as strangers.
It is a good story.
There is a small amount of ex drama.
At the start it looks as though Graeme will be intimate with another woman but there is little detail ( I don't want to spoil anything so I won't explain) and at that time he hasn't met Gillian. I don't like it when the Hero has met the heroine or is enamoured with her but then is involved with another woman but that doesn't happen here.
It does reflect the attitude of men and women of the time, mistresses and dalliances but it is a small scene and not as it seems.
Graeme De Sowlis and His Lady Gillian finally get there HEA .
It’s been eagerly awaited, and it’s worth the wait .
It’s a perfect addition to this wonderful series, it’s smooth and beautifully written, with both tense and tender moments.
I really feel for Graeme, always have , he’s had such bad luck with women , I’ve wanted him to be happy so long .
Finally he’s getting some attention , it’s not surprising that the doubts he feels emerging are pushing him in so many directions, and Gillian has not had it easy either , these two really were matched well by Cecilia, their emotions were so dense I felt them , I was anxious for them both as they struggled through .
I’m so happy that I’ve finally read this one , and can’t wait to see more from this borderland group, it really is an exceptional series.
I received an advanced copy of this book and chose to submit a review
Lady Gillian Bowman is going to enjoy this last celebration before she has to marry a horrible old man. Her family is in danger of losing everything unless she does as her father says.
There have been a lot of raids all along the border and the peace is in jeopardy.
An amusing story where our wonderful characters hardly stay still long enough to think let alone speak, no wonder misunderstandings happen.
This is part of a series. Each book can be read on its own, but better if you read them in order. You will meet the characters from the earlier books. Lots of fun. I loved it.
