Product description

Product Description

On the cusp of her first London season, Miss Madeline Gracechurch was shy, pretty, and talented with a drawing pencil, but hopelessly awkward with gentlemen. She was certain to be a dismal failure on the London marriage mart. So Maddie did what generations of shy, awkward young ladies have done: she invented a sweetheart.

A Scottish sweetheart. One who was handsome and honorable and devoted to her, but conveniently never around. Maddie poured her heart into writing the imaginary Captain MacKenzie letter after letter . . . and by pretending to be devastated when he was (not really) killed in battle, she managed to avoid the pressures of London society entirely.

Until years later, when this kilted Highland lover of her imaginings shows up in the flesh. The real Captain Logan MacKenzie arrives on her doorstep—handsome as anything, but not entirely honorable. He's wounded, jaded, in possession of her letters . . . and ready to make good on every promise Maddie never expected to keep.

Even a jaded romance reader will enjoy this book, as it's full of humour and poignant moments.

The first few chapters are laugh out loud funny. Shy Maddie is tired of being pressured to socialise and invents a fake fiancé, a highland soldier Logan MacKenzie. This ruse allows her much valued privacy. When she tells her family her fake fiancé is killed in action it results in Maddie inheriting a castle in Scotland where she retires, a happy spinster..... until the day Logan MacKenzie shows up at her door demanding his bride.

The fake fiancé farce is really funny. The context of the dispossessed Scots from their lands is poignant. But the experiences of Logan's war time companions are just heart breaking. The author treads a fine line between humour and pathos but she does it well. Do keep a box of tissues on standby.

Much of the book's quality comes from the lead characters who, as their own interesting stories unfold, become truly believable people. There are also lobsters with their own story that ties the whole novel together. It's a very satisfying book and highly recommended.

4.5/5. Charming, funny, but with great emotional depth also. Sociophobic Maddie invented an absent Higlander captain at sixteen to avoid going to London for the usual Season circus. To keep up appearances of a faithful fiancee, she diligently wrote regular letters to him and even wrote the replies back. Years later, her lies have escalated and allowed her to remain single and socially isolated, as she desired. Unfortunately, with pain in her heart, she had to kill off her beloved betrothed, before she became entrapped in the web of her own invention. She did not count on a tall, dashing, somewhat angry, real life Captain Mackenzie knocking on her door one day. Fantasies can come true, but can she handle the truth?

I've read this book twice now and enjoyed it both times. Tessa Dare puts a unique twist into the way the heroine meets her hero with some humour thrown in. It also deals with issues suffered by soldiers returning from years at war. Definitely worth a read.
