OrangeReviewStarAnnoyed that he has inherited an English dukedom and feeling like a fish out of water when he brings his two sisters to London, Hamish MacHugh, newly minted Duke of Murdoch and Scottish warrior to the core, is more than ready to head back home. But his sisters deserve a Season, so he'll do his best to oblige. When he rescues Megan Windham's spectacles from disaster in a bookstore, he discovers a reason of his own to remain. Spot-on sibling and cousinly interactions keep the pace lively and the mood funny and upbeat in this engaging, sensual romance. An honorable, rule-flouting hero with a violent military reputation and an intuitive heroine who sees the real man are drawn to each other and foil a cruel, avaricious villain in the process.
VERDICT Gorgeously written and thoroughly delightful, this is a wonderful start to a new (but in some ways, continuing) series and a must-buy for most romance collections. Burrowes (Will's True Wish) lives in rural Maryland.
