Verity Hatherleigh has a mind of her own—but her actions do not impress her viscount papa. When she gets into one scrape too many, she’s sent off to the wilds of Scotland to rethink her headstrong ways.
Anthony Jardine relished his role as curate, but his new duties as laird of Dungally aren’t always to his liking. Though he thought his new inheritance would be a blessing, somehow he’s finding nothing but trouble on these estates. And the intelligent, compassionate, feisty lass who was sent to rusticate in his territory is one of the biggest problems. He’s falling in love with her, but she doesn’t share the faith that’s his foundation—not to mention he’s been lying to her about who he really is. For the truth-loving Verity, that may be unforgivable.
The tangled web these two have woven may spell disaster for their happiness—and for the tenants of Dungally.
My thoughts and giveaway:
Once again Carolyn has crafted a beautifully intricate story. It’s so interesting because the two main characters don’t even met until around page ninety. But I didn’t feel like it was dragging, it was just part of the story. The pages leading up that that moment are filled with other important things taking place.
One thing I love about this time period is how people just travel and stay at other people’s house for lengthy periods of time. I find that so interesting.
It was nice to finally get to know Verity, she was somewhat of a mystery in the other books with all her scraps and bruises. Now we get to learn more about her.
