I give this book 4 out of 5 stars

Summary from Goodreads.com: Rugged Highland Laird David Campbell rescues an English beauty roaming the countryside. At first he thinks Isabelle Tynsdale will be a pawn to bring his enemies to their knees, but under Isabelle’s touch he’s the one who surrenders.

The perfect romance for those looking for a sweet romance, a good laugh and wonderful sub-plots thrown in.  I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and am curious to read more from Amanda Forester.  I love romances that can toss in some humor that makes me laugh but doesn’t come across as too campy.  The romance is sweet and you can definitely feel the chemistry between David and Isabelle but don’t hold your breathe if you are one of those romance fans who like the long, detailed sex scenes.  This book is quite tame in that aspect but suits my taste perfectly.

I will say to enjoy this you will have to suspend your belief in reality and just take it as a given that no matter what trouble Isabelle gets herself into David somehow miraculously always manages to be there to save her.  I also found it hard to believe that as a noble woman Isabelle really could have walked as long and as far as it is made out to be.  Still just go with the flow and take it for what it is.

Along with David and Isabelle’s story we also follow the plight of one of David’s sisters who is kidnapped and ends up meeting the love of her life.  Alas things never go smoothly and their relationship appears to be doomed to end in misery.  I loved the twists and turns that take place along the way and when I finished the book I admit I did let out a satisfied sigh.
