This book set the stage for the series so not a lot happened between the H&H for a long while, and when it did it was the typical I hate you, have sex with me, I hate you, I love you, blah, blah, blah. The lack of communication between the couple dragged on far too long.

The father, on the other hand, was a real piece of work. Book 1 of 3.

(From the cover) He was a notorious rogue with a reputation for hell-raising and heartbreaking. But family secrets forced Ashton Merrick to do his ruthless father's bidding-and escort Rhiannon Russell back to McClairen's Isle. Ash suspected that his father intended to make the innocent beauty his fourth wife. But he didn't expect the passions she would ignite in his own wary heart.

This was a good historial romantic suspense story. The first in a series of 3 concerning the Merrick siblings who are English by birth, but live in a remote Scottish castle with their evil father. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of this series.

This is not my Review but sums it up nicely..

I had a hard time getting into this complicated Georgian romance which is just too hard to summarize. The book was divided into two parts: before the hero abducts the heroine on his father's behalf to bring her to his father (who is awful in too many ways to list) and then after he abducts her. But, by that point he's fallen in love with her and decides he must protect her from his father, but if he does he might not get the money promised him (by same dastardly father) that he can use to pay the ransom to free his brother from a French prison. I told you it was complicated
