Shona Imrie should have agreed to Gordon MacDermond’s proposal of marriage seven years ago—before he went off to war and returned a national hero—but the proud Scottish lass would accept no man’s charity. The dashing soldier would never truly share her love and the passion that left her weak and breathless — or so she believed—so instead she gave herself to another. Now she faces disgrace, poverty, and a life spent alone for her steadfast refusal to follow her heart. 

Honored with a baronetcy for his courage under fire, Gordon has everything he could ever want—except for the one thing he most fervently desires: the headstrong beauty he foolishly let slip through his fingers. Conquering Shona’s stubborn pride, however, will prove his most difficult battle—though it is the one for which he is most willing to risk his life, his heart, and his soul. (Amazon)

Shona Imerie is newly widowed and broke. Her brother was injured at war and she is trying her best to take care of him and to make sure that they have a place to stay as well as food to eat. But things aren’t easy. The only option she finds is to sell their family home – a Scottish castle. Although her brother is against that idea, it is the only one that Shona sees besides asking for help from her ex-lover turned Baron Gordon MacDermond. He is the last person she wants to be around.

Gordon was tormented by war and is diligently trying to make a new explosive powder that will be used for demolition instead of war. Gordon feels guilty for Shona’s brother’s injury because Gordon was the leader. He wants to do all he can to help them but Shona will have none of it. Gordon knows it is risky being around Shona, because all he wants to do is give her his heart even though she broke it a long time ago. 

Karen Ranney sets up a beautiful story with depth and background. There is not only the main love story of Gordon and Shona but a few smaller stories that occur along the way. Historical in depth and romantically enticing fans of this genre will enjoy Karen Ranney’s contributions. Who doesn’t want to be romanced in an old Scottish castle?
