From the Back Cover
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.

The fake fiancé farce is really funny. The story of the Scots dispossessed from their lands is poignant. But the experiences of Logan's soldier companions are 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 become truly believable people as their own stories unfold. There are also some lobsters with their very own story. It's a very satisfying book and highly recommended.
