Reader Review: Another five for Hannah Howell, she creates such wonderful characters, and amazing stories that you will want to read them in one stand. I highly recommend this one, it will keep you trap from page one.
From New York Times bestseller Hannah Howell, a classic love story of a Scottish hero too wild to be tamed and the woman he's destined to set free. . .
Pleasance Dunstan is used to silently bearing the cruelties put upon her by her thoughtless family. But nothing can prepare her for the greatest indignity of all: being sold into servitude to a man as wild as Tearlach O'Duine. His untamed ways are whispered of throughout town, and he has set his sights on Pleasance to be more than his servant. He will have her in his bed.
Pleasance could escape this fate with a word, but her fierce pride keeps her silent. Instead, she follows her new master to the rough lands where he has made a home and finds a world beyond any she has ever known--a world of desire. For though he is her captor, only Tearlach can show her how freeing true passion can be. . .and while her servitude to him will one day end, nothing can stop the binding of their hearts. . .

Chapter OneWorcester, Massachusetts Bay Colony-1769
"I do not wish to marry John Martin," Letitia whined.
Pleasance watched her pouting younger sister closely, inwardly grimacing at her childish tone. From the moment Pleasance, Letitia, and their parents had sat down at the huge, heavily laden table to eat breakfast, her sister had kept up a steady stream of complaint. Although Pleasance continued to calmly eat her eggs and ham, she felt a tight knot of uneasiness begin to steal her appetite. She did not like the direction the conversation was taking. Whenever Letitia expressed displeasure, it cost someone dearly. And that someone was usually her.
She covertly watched her parents. Thomas Dunstan's face was flushed, and Pleasance knew he was failing to control his anger with Letitia. He wanted a marriage with the wealthy Martins as a means to increase his own prestige. His wife, Sarah, was fiddling with her heavy lace fichu, a clear indication of her agitation. No doubt she had already been secretly planning an elaborate, ostentatious wedding. Pleasance's elder brother, Lawrence, was studying with his tutor, and she was glad of it. Lawrence was exactly like their father, and there was already quite enough bombast at the table. Her younger brother, Nathan, was off on some mysterious business-probably eluding customs agents trying to collect unpaid duty on shipments he had made to the other colonies.
"John Martin is a fine young man," Thomas Dunstan said, tugging his elaborately embroidered waistcoat over his rounding stomach before filling his plate with a second serving of smoked ham and scrambled eggs f...

Reviewer: A reader from Saratoga, CA US
a decent variation on the hannah howell formula... i guess stick to what works. a hard-headed alpha male plus a stubborn female who falls in love a little too quickly, generally against her best interest is the center of this book. an entertaining read, but not fabulous
Not my favorite book

Reviewer: A reader from Lakewood, CO US
The book is interesting but I do wonder where her spine came from. She was so obsessed with pleasing her family that she did anything the told her too. The change was great but I wonder where her spine came from because she started out so mild. He was just too stubborn about keeping her distant and unable to hurt him I wondered why she fell for him in the first place.
Too much detail

Altogether this book was good but the detail of it was kind of much you really have to pay attention to the story because you lose track of whose who i had to read several pages more than once to keep up.
