Miss Lillian Harwood has lived much of her life alone in a gilded cage, longing for love and companionship. When an artist offers her pretty promises and begs her to pose for a scandalous portrait, Lily doesn't hesitate...until the lying libertine leaves her in disgrace. With the painting now public, Lily has no choice but to turn to the one man who might save her from ruin.
Highland Devil Turned Halfhearted Duke
The duke of Warnick loathes all things English, none more so than the aristocracy. It does not matter that the imposing Scotsman has inherited one of the most venerable dukedoms in Britain - he wants nothing to do with it, especially when he discovers that the unwanted title comes with a troublesome ward, one who is far too old and far too beautiful to be his problem.
Tartan Comes to Town
Warnick arrives in London with a single goal: get the chit married and see her become someone else's problem, then return to a normal, quiet life in Scotland. It's the perfect plan until Lily declares she'll marry only for love...and the Scot finds that there is one thing in England he likes far too much.

Old fashioned romance, dreadful Scottish accent
The story was funny, I laughed a lot, but the narrator was diabolical. I have like some of Justine's narration in the past but she cannot do a Scottish accent - it sounded like bad Irish a majority of the time. I would advise having someone who can do read with an accent it would improve the whole experience.

Decent enough Story, Okay narration
This was a decent story. I liked the heroine Lillian, she had some spunk. I liked Alec too, he was a big sexy brute. LOL These two had some good chemistry together. There is a nicely written sex scene so it's not rated G.
The story line and plot was good. Except I didn't care too much for Alec's insecurities. I kind of thought that was lame. And the so called "secret" was pretty lame. Glad it was not the focus of the story. Just his excuse for not being good enough. That story has been told a thousand times. So that part was a bit annoying.
There was lots of dialogue through out the entire book which was great. I love a couple of the secondary characters like Celeste, I am looking forward to her book. There was a couple of characters that popped up from the Rules of Scoundrels series so that was fun.
As for the narration. Hmmm not a favorite of Justine Eyre for sure. I didn't care for the scottish accent she used for Alec at all. Not good. Also the breathy reading sometimes bugs.. The female characters are done well though. Just not a big big fan of JE voice.

I wanted to love it...but I don't.
I am a serious Sarah MacLean fan, enjoying all of her historicals. Unfortunately, the narrator is so painful it is hard to get through. I was hoping the new series would have a new voice but alas, the scratchy, overly breathless, faux British accent, and PAINFUL Scottish accent overshadowed a decent story. I felt that the female character was brash and impertinent to an unrealistic level to the person who has been financing her life for the better part of a decade sight unseen. I feel the male lead, referred to as a brute so often one could form a drinking game around the moniker, was too easily pushed over by a total brat who he has known less than a week.
To imagine this Scot would go from his rugged lifestyle of hounds and Highlands to a distinguished, patient and empathetic guardian in less than 2 chapters is just not plausible.
I pray she moves to a new narrator soon, and will continue to try new books. Just not my favorite.
