A basic romance between a heroine with a scandalous past and a hero wanting to get ahead no matter the cost Set in Edinburgh and with a self made hero, I was intrigued by the premise and prospect but ultimately nothing took off for me It was just too predictable a story and the characters felt too stereotypical for me to get behind one Good writing, but I like intrigue and diversity and spice in my romances.
Great characters Full of surprises A fantastic follow up to the first book in the series I received a complimentary ARC of this book from NetGalley Gallery, Threshold, Pocket Books in order to read and provide a voluntary, unbiased and honest review, should I choose to do so.

4.5 stars There s nothing like reading a good romance based in Scotland on a crisp winter day.This is an entertaining read with two admirable main characters and just the right amount of heat It s light and fun, but also manages to remind us that at the root and tip of every gossip story is a human being whom likely is worth than any story to which they find themselves tied.I received an ARC of this book, from the publisher, via NetGalley, in exchange for a fair and honest review.
