Description

On the cusp of her first London season, Miss Madeline Gracechurch was shy, pretty, and talented with a drawing pencil, but hopelessly awkward with gentlemen. She was certain to be a dismal failure on the London marriage mart. So Maddie did what generations of shy, awkward young ladies have done: she invented a sweetheart.

A Scottish sweetheart. One who was handsome and honorable and devoted to her, but conveniently never around. Maddie poured her heart into writing the imaginary Captain MacKenzie letter after letter . . . and by pretending to be devastated when he was (not really) killed in battle, she managed to avoid the pressures of London society entirely.

Until years later, when this kilted Highland lover of her imaginings shows up in the flesh. The real Captain Logan MacKenzie arrives on her doorstep—handsome as anything, but not entirely honorable. He's wounded, jaded, in possession of her letters . . . and ready to make good on every promise Maddie never expected to keep.

    This is one of the BEST romance books I've ever read. The part where he's forced to read the poem he supposedly wrote to her in front of company, "I were a bird"..... wow. I couldn't stop laughing 💕

    I love this author and this series. This is the third book in the series, but each book stands alone. I think this is my new favorite of the three. Romancing The Duke is my second favorite now. It has a lot of qualities that are true to romance of this era, but so many more twists and turns that make it fresh and so charming. Lots of humor mixed with angst. Both the H and h have reasons a plenty not to fall in love. It was fun to watch them both overcome fears of different kinds to come together. This story has a lot of heart because it's not just about the love affair of the main characters but also about all the different kinds of love that we have in our lives, family and friends. Friends that turn into family. So heart warming. Do yourself a favor and read the whole series, it doesn't matter what order you read them in. 2/27/2017 Just reread this and Romancing the Duke. Love these stories. They make you laugh and cheer for all the characters in these books. I was having trouble finding a good story to get lost in. Frankly, I was starting t get cranky about it. Like I had withdrawals or something. My mind kept going back to the Romancing the Duke story, so I re read it and there was an excerpt from this book in it. That's when I remembered I liked this story as well and just enough time had gone by that I didn't remember all the tiny details. I could sigh with happiness. It quenched my jitters and I'm a happy camper again. I love Tessa Dare's sense of humor and ability to make us care for her characters. The sex scenes are tastefully written and important to the story. I highly, highly recommend this author and this series in particular.

    A heart warming novel. Tessa develops characters with true depth and makes you care about their happiness. No ridiculous theatrics or obnoxious mIsunderstandings. Just two people from very different upbringings looking for love and acceptance from the other.

    I love stories with heroines that are more introverted, yet not a pushover, and Madeline Gracechurch is just that, a bookworm with a penchant for seashell collecting and an aversion to ‘all things expected’ for a woman of her class. With a stepmother bent on her marriage to an ‘appropriate man’, Maddie creates a fiction. She is in love, with a Scotsman, a Captain in the service, currently off doing his duty, and then in a moment of inspired desperation, gives him a name. Bequeathed property in Scotland, Maddie has quietly managed a ‘correspondence’ with said figment, until tragically, he is killed in battle. Now free to live her life away from meddlesome family, she spends her days as she chooses, unaware of just how her story of convenience had played out. Unfortunately, for Maddie, her letters to a ‘pretend beaux’ were finding a home with the actual Captain Logan McKenzie. The twists and humor with which Dare employed to present the backdrop for our couple to meet is perfectly paced, laden with humor, and gives a solid insight into the dreams that Maddie may hold, but rarely speak aloud. A rather bemused, yet determined Scotsman, one Logan McKenzie appears at Maddie’s door, clad in uniform and kilt, and she is, for lack of a better word, gobsmacked. This scene was so well-timed and plotted that you could practically hear Maddie’s wheels spinning away in her brain as she tried to come to terms with the situation. Oh Logan had his own plans, and while I’m not thrilled with his strong arm tactics, he can’t be angry for long with the quietly intelligent woman, and their relationship blossomed as they shared their insecurities, their innate sense of honor, and the obvious attraction took them toward a happy ending. Strong characters with issues to face and overcome, humor, a lovely setting and attraction that jumps off the pages, both Logan and Maddie grew in themselves and together, keeping me engaged and intrigued throughout. With a touch of suspense before the end that worked on every nerve, Dare gave a will or won’t they moment some added oomph before the end. Capping off the story with a sweet treat of an epilogue, the story was a winner from beginning to end. I can’t wait to dive into more in this series and from this author – a new must read for me. I received a paperback copy from the publisher via Avon Addicts for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
