I just did not like this book. Fiona seemed too selfish, I really tried to like her, but she just annoyed me (the way she was mad at Jack for not changing for her after shes forced him to marry her). The family curse seemed interesting but it got tiresome and Fiona's brothers just seemed to get in the way too much. I thought maybe the curse would play a bigger role towards the end of the book and it started to, but it all just died out. I didn't buy Fiona and Jack's love for each other either. I was more interested in Lucinda than any of the other characters. The end of the book is the worst, there was hardly any resolve, it all seemed rushed and ended too abruptly. Some people really liked this book, I just expect more from a historic romance.
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.

If you haven't read this book, you'll want to! It's a terrific story with laugh out loud funny moments and a very tender love story.
