Llynmore Castle is the only place Annabel Lockhart has ever considered home. For years, she’s been able to live as she wished, freely roaming the wild moors. Now there’s a new earl, as arrogant as he is handsome, and he wants her out. But if he thinks she’ll go quietly, he’s in for a surprise.
Theo Townsend returned from war a changed man. After unexpectedly inheriting an earldom and a secluded castle in the Scottish Highlands to go with it, he thinks he’s found the perfect place to hide from the world—until he arrives to find a spirited, beautiful woman already in residence. He can’t just throw her out, but surely there's a way to get her to leave on her own. The sooner she's gone, the better, especially when he realizes there’s more than just mutual dislike between them.4 Stars
A sweet historical romance following Theo and Annabel. There was a great amount of realism in the plot surrounding this couple, which was well balanced with a sweep of escapism. Theo’s character especially was one I enjoyed. The author captured his plight and anxiety so very well. A great start to a promising series.

When she’s not working on a new story, she likes to tour old houses, add to her tea stash, and think of reasons to avoid housework.
