Lady Rogue (Escape Between The Pages)
- Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
During a feud between the Kincaids and the Macleans, Fiona's youngest brother Callum was killed. Distraught and worried for her four other brothers, she kidnapped a drunken Jack "Black Jack" Kincaid and forced him into a marriage with her. When Jack regained consciousness, he was livid to find, he didn't dream the marriage, but was indeed married, to the woman who jilted him many years earlier. He got more enraged, when she further informed him, everyone knew about thier marriage and believed the reason for it, was that she was with child...his child. His anger did fizzle, when she told him of Callum's death and and the reason she forced the marriage.
When he discovered the marriage could not be annuled, Fiona made a deal with him. If and when she carried his child in truth, she would leave and never return. Yet, even though the deal was struck, Jack refused to give up his drinking, gambling and carousing ways. While he went out, Fiona was stuck at home waiting and wondering. Having had enough, she was of the mind set, 'if Jack could go out and have a good time at the gambling halls or whatever, then so could she'. Yeah...You Go Girl! Needless to say, that didn't go over to well with the reluctant husband. It soon became a battle of wit, wills and matter of the heart.
I loved the chemistry between Fiona and Jack. While Jack was determined not to let his new marriage effect his lifestyle, it was obvious to this reader, that he still harbored lingering feelings for her. Fiona had always loved Jack. Years ago, she called off thier engagement, when it became apparent, Jack wouldn't have given up the mistresses. Hell, I don't blame her. Once more, the spark had been ignited, and Fiona and Jack had a second chance at love. That was if Fiona's four angry brothers, whose tempers cause drastic weather changes, a jealous ex-mistress , and a man scorned didn't cause problems...Yeah, right!
Overall, How To Abduct A Highland Lord was sexy, witty and a light-hearted guilty pleasure. It tickled the funny bone, compelled the heart and entertained the imagination. I had a great time reading this book. If you want to read, where you don't have to think, but just relax and enjoy a fun regency highland romance, then I think you will love it too.
