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?
