My goodness! It's certainly been a while since I've last read a Harlequin Historical, and I can honestly say I've missed out on this series. It should come as no surprise that I'd stumble on the last book of a series to find myself completely taken in by the authors voice and brilliant characters.
Marrying the Rebellious Miss was a pleasant surprise considering the rash of historical romances I've read lately that have been disappointing.
Without giving too much away, this book starts off where our heroine has had a child out of wedlock and has sequestered herself to quiet country living in Scotland. There she hopes to live in peace away from the judgement of proper society.
That is, until her family enlists her childhood friend Preston to bring her home.
The combination of friends to lovers and marriage of convenience really does lend this book some beautiful moments, and while I may have had the book figured out within the first few hours of reading, I found myself easily entertained.
This book was easily a five star read for me. Now I'll just need to get caught up with the first three titles.
