We start the story off with Veronica and Montgomery at a secret society meeting. Neither knows about the other at this point, but that will all change!
Veronica gets herself into a bit of trouble with the Society Of The Mercaii. American Montgomery Fairfax, the new Lord of Dorchester Hall is there observing and rescues Veronica from a rather unpleasant situation.
Upon returning to Veronica's family residence - her Uncles. Her cousin Amanda has raised the alarm.. forcing the couple into an unwanted marriage. The couple leaves for Scotland to Montgomery's newly acquired estate.
I enjoyed the story, but just was left wanting more from the characters. Amanda - Veronica's cousin started out as possible villain. She was blackmailing Veronica for extra pin money. Using threats of telling on Veronica to get what she wanted. I was hoping for more out of this character.
I liked Veronica, she was witty and had some spunk. She kept Montgomery on his toes. Sadly she was not well treated by her husband. He shamefully used her and kept her at arms length. Both characters had a sad past that neither wanted to share with the other. Which created some major tension and problems with their relationship. I liked this - it gave Veronica and Montgomery a way to connect.
I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys historical and Scottish romances.
