A Match Made in Heather
WHEN HIGHLAND HEARTS COLLIDE…
Arabel Rowland was the laird’s daughter, courted by sons of dukes and as wild and untamed as the Highlands around her. Garrick McGuiness was nothing more than a penniless, nameless Scot working in the Rowland stables with nothing to offer but his heart. On the eve when they were to elope, Arabel is forced to make a decision that changes both of their lives—one that drives them apart for a decade.
SPARKS ARE SURE TO FLY!
Ten years later, Garrick is now Earl of Townsend and surprised to receive word of an inheritance from the Rowlands—and simply stunned to learn that he must share that inheritance with the one woman he hoped never to see again. His plan is to fulfill the will’s requirement, take the money, and never return to Scotland again. But when the deadly secret that came between them is revealed, he finds himself experiencing the Highlands—and his feelings toward Arabel—in a way he never did before.
Fate tore them apart, but now he’s back in her life with status, money and a title. Can they let go of past hurts and find love?
~This book was publish in the anthology “Say Yes to the Scot”.~
This is the first time that I will read a book from this author. This was a good story. Revenge was the main feeling of main hero. During the time period of this story, social standings was more important than love, and at the same time, family loyalty.
As I was reading this story there are some parts that made me cry. They love each other so much that it hurts to read some of the lines in the book. However, the most captivating words that I have read was this:
“The most important families aren’t the ones we’re born into, but the ones we choose”.
Somehow, no matter how much you love the family you are born into, there are times you have to let go especially if they are the ones that causes you pain, and you can never find happiness no matter what you do.
Love is a two way street. If you are willing to give it, but love is not returned, it is not called Love anymore. The past may have hurt them, but the her relatives that saw how much pain they caused, made the effort to bring them together.
Love is sweeter the second time around, and it is certainly true on this story.
