Brenna, Lady Maclachlan, is astounded when Lord and Lady Danville turn up claiming she is their daughter. Since she has always wanted a sibling, she agrees to go to London for the season so she can meet her twin brother, and raise awareness of the Clearances that are decimating the Scottish way of life and forcing the populace into homelessness. She ends up meeting Colin Rosemoor, who is in a world of trouble as an accused cheater. Brenna rather likes Colin. He listens to her and respects her love of astronomy. She believes that he was set up and is intent on helping him prove his innocence when her father announces that he has betrothed her to Colin's enemy. Colin is such a nice-guy hero, readers will root for him to clear his name and win Brenna. This novel is set in 1819, just after the events in Unlaced (2004) and before events in Unveiled (2005), and readers will enjoy Cook's latest lively Regency-era romance featuring a feisty, intelligent heroine.

Colin is ruined by claims that he was cheating at cards but instead of accepting help to clear his name he spitefully acts like spoiled adolescent and chooses to try to do it himself. Instead of proving he was framed he makes matters by becoming an alcoholic and losing at gambling until he's done in. Then he wallows in self-pity and eventually loses his temper with dire results Not a likable character! Brenna is sweet one scene and a fiery miss the next. She reasons for staying in England are too thin to be believable. The story hops from one disaster to the next and just when it appears to be resolving itself Brenna is trapped in an open tower in a driving rainstorm by a raging fire on the wooden stairs, but the rain can't put the fire out.
If you ever decide to re-write this tale, please put in a scene where Brenna finds out that Colin put all of her dowry into a trust for her, and had not used any of it. And, I would have liked to have had Jenny's character developed as a friend to Brenna in Scotland
