Ross MacLaren was not happy to learn of his upcoming nuptials to a complete stranger but when he sees Juliet he realizes that he could easily fall in love with her. But will he be able to convince Juliet that they are meant to be together?
As Juliet and Ross begin to realize they have feelings for one another, Juliet's past comes back looking for a second chance. Will Juliet decide on a past love or her current? When loyalties are in question what will happen to everyone involved?
I really enjoyed this book and the mix of the past yet their love life didn't feel like it was from the past at all.
I really liked Juliet's character and how she truly evolved into a strong woman who knew what she wanted and what she was living for. She definitely had her share of disappointments in life but she really wanted to be happy and lived her life to the best ability that she could and was a super caring person. I liked reading how everyone initially viewed her and how everyone's opinions about her changed.
Ross was definitely a sexy Scot and I loved the loyalty of his character and also the fun that he had when he could. He was dedicated to his people and his wife and he was worried about that conflict.
John was interesting in that you knew at one point he had to of been a good guy for Juliet to fall for him but losing her sent him in a crazy tailspin and I was never sure of what his next actions were going to be as he proved that he wouldn't give up.
I really liked Ross's family but I was definitely pissed at his dad for awhile! I really enjoyed his sister Glynis and hope she is able to find some happiness!!
