Summary

If Emily hadn't gone to Annie Richmond's party, she would never have met the impossibly irresistible Rory Balniel - never have married him and been carried off to the wild Scottish island of Irasa to live in his ancestral home. She'd never have met the wild and mysterious Marina, a wraith from Rory's past, nor her brother, the disagreeable Finn Maclean. And she would never have been caught stealing roses in a see-through nightie....

What a shame

Would not recommend this book. Pauses between chapters far too long. Story line poor. If this is the future of Jilly cooper I shall not be listening ,!,

Narrator was too stuffy

I remember this book from years ago. I was obsessed with Jilly Cooper popcorn romances. This books did not live up to my memories. First of all, the narrator was too stuffy. Emily was a silly girl and this woman was not silly. Felt like she should have been reading something more serious. The story was good but not great and the I never felt the heartbreak. Maybe my life was simpler but this book just didn't cut it. Maybe with a different narrator.
