About the Book:
Verity Hatherleigh has a mind of her own–but her impulsive actions do not impress her viscount papa. When she gets into one scrape too many, he sends her 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.
Even though I’m not a huge regency reader, I’ve heard amazing things about Carolyn Miller’s writing and so I was pretty excited to give her latest release a try. Even though it’s the third book in a series, I was easily able to read it as a standalone. I was gripped in the beginning but there were also parts that seemed to drag for me. I really liked each of the characters and found them to be realistic and well developed. I particularly adored Verity’s spunky personality and mischievous spirit. I was easily able to place myself in each of the scenes as they unfolded. I think if I was more of a Regency fan it would have held my attention more, but I didn’t dislike the story either. It was just a bit too easy for me to put down. I would still easily recommend it to Regency Romance fans (as I’ve seen many already do). The author does have a beautiful writing style.
