Is it too much to ask for a relationship that works?
When Stella Grant realises her perfect romance is a lie and that she's the other woman, she flees to her remote cottage in the Highlands to lick her wounds.
Billionaire currency trader Jack Maclean has nothing but contempt for the woman who stole not only his sister’s fiancé but quite possibly a family heirloom to boot. Nonetheless, he wants answers and he intends to get them. A quick trip north should do the trick. Never in a million years could he have predicted a kamikaze sheep and inclement weather would leave him stranded.
Jack might be gorgeous but Stella isn’t in the market for a man, especially one who hates her. No matter how attractive he finds her Stella is the very last person Jack should want. The trouble is, they’re all alone and the chemistry is irresistible, and, well, what happens in Scotland stays in Scotland, right?
Stella Grant escapes to the high lands to hide from her humiliation of being duped by a guy who had a fiance. Jack Maclean is furious with Stella and hunts her down to face her for breaking his sister’s heart. Stella holds her ground and informs Jack that she was lied too just as much as his sister was. Jack is not expecting to be so attracted to Stella. They have a torrid affair that results in her pregnancy. Jack is haunted by the past of losing his wife in her pregnancy and is doing his best to guard his heart while supporting Stella. Jack will do anything to make sure history does not repeat itself.
In an Oyster Shell –It was a brief story that I really enjoyed it was a unique storyline that kept my interest.
The Pearls – I really enjoyed the unique storyline. I read a lot of romances and this one stands out from them all. I liked the European setting. I enjoyed the concept of an unplanned pregnancy and that bringing the two characters together.
I really liked Jack. He was stormy not expecting to have his feelings stirred up by Stella. Stella helps Jack break down his walls with presenting him with challenges. The couple was well paired. It made for a good story.
The romance was good. I wanted more of it. Jack had a lot to overcome. Stella had to stand her ground. It made for a great story.
The Sand – I wish it was longer.
