Description

London, 1815

Laird Liam MacLeod is not lacking for lasses that wish to marry him. As chief of one of the few remaining stable and wealthy clans in the Highlands, the scheming misses are more than plentiful—too plentiful, in fact, for a man who desires to marry for love. Given the opportunity to escape to London for the holidays, Liam takes it with a halfhearted expectation that perhaps English ladies will be different. But the calculating debutantes of the ton and their marriage-minded mamas leave him with little hope, until a chance encounter brings him face-to-face with a beautiful, witty lady who knows nothing about him.

Miss Cecelia Cartwright has an unfairly tattered reputation and the distasteful yet pressing need for a marriage of convenience. She’d frankly rather eat dirt, but when one’s family is on the verge of poverty, pride must fall by the wayside. But the day a handsome, honorable Scot comes to her aid, he awakens longings in Cecelia that she knows she cannot pursue.

Torn between her heart and her duty, Cecelia finds herself dancing at the very edge of impropriety that once before served her social death. When her old suitor returns to Town, she must choose between the laird she loves and the duke who could save her family. Just when she thinks she knows what she ought to do, Liam reveals a secret that may well prove charming Scots are the most dangerous rogues of them all.

  • Cannot continue to even Chapter 5

    This is it. Too many grammatical, period knowledge, and wrong words, especially in the narrative. Stopped short of chapter five, because I couldn’t take it anymore. Plot was mildly interesting, but the errors made it impossible for me to continue. Will not buy this author again.
  • A Must Read!

    Miss Cecila Cartwright fell out of the good graces of the ton, and her mother wants nothing more than for her to earn her way back in and marry well. Cecilia, however, struggles with wanting to please her mother and help their finances, after meeting handsome and rugged Laird Liam MacLeod. Liam, visiting London from his homeland of Scotland, is happy to be free of the lasses back home who watch his every move and try to make him their husband. Cecilia, knowing nothing about Liam or his wealth, finds herself falling for Liam. He, in turn, is enticed by her beauty and finds it refreshing that she doesn't want him for his wealth. But will love be enough to bring this couple together? Or will the fact that Liam hides his wealth and Cecilia's need for a financially stable marriage keep them apart? This is book three in the Highlander Vows series by Julie Johnstone. It was a delightful Christmas story, with the most romantic and tantalizing scene under the Christmastide kissing ball! While I suggest reading the first two books as well, you can pick this one up to get you into the Christmas spirit! I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    This is the third book in the series and what a beautiful story it is.The book starts out about a lovely girl named Cecelia Cartwright who's fell on hard times and who has pretty much taken the fall in as scandal by being in the wrong place.Scottish Laird Liam Macleod to the rescue, a sweet talking Scot who is just so loveable,he wants to find someone who loves him for himself and not his money.Theres just something about the story that draws you in and the characters you just fall in love with. FIVE SCOTTISH STARS
