No beauty in England could outshine Elizabeth Cameron, Countess of Havenhurst. But beneath her exquisite emerald eyes and cloud of golden hair, lived a girl of rare gentleness, good humour, and a splendid, even ferocious courage. In Ian Thornton's powerful embrace, Elizabeth felt the first stirrings of a passion that blazed through her senses. Yet for Thornton, a dangerously handsome man of secret wealth and mysterious lineage, the voyage to Elizabeth's heart was fraught with intrigue, scandal, and a venomous jealousy. From the elegant salons of London, to the wild beauty of the Scottish Highlands, their tempestuous, dramatic romance was played out, a romance between two lovers destined for each other, even though they refused to admit it.

this book as with most of Judith Mcnaught Regency romances is a wonderful read - An all-out handsome lord with a temper to match who really has to learn how to trust. A beautiful, wilful girl to who also has to learn to love and trust. There is also intrigue and misunderstandings galore, and finally passion and devotion. Go on, knock yourselves out!

Misunderstandings, Miscommunications and Betrayal
What I like about this book is that the heroine is so loving and trusting even throughout all the turmoil in her life. She gets the short end of the stick in so many ways and still comes out on top! And her companion is the toughest lady I have ever read about that was not the main character. I loved reading about the fancy dress balls and elegantly clad men and women dancing to music. It is all so romantic and far-away sounding that it makes you forget your problems and relieves some of the stress of everyday life.
Publishers Weekly, 1990-02-23 Well-developed main characters with a compelling mutual attraction give strength and charm to this romance set in 19th-century Great Britain. When orphaned Lady Elizabeth Cameron is discovered in the arms of Ian Thornton, said to be a gambler and blackguard, her reputation is destroyed. Elizabeth's half-brother shoots Ian in a duel and disappears, while she becomes an outcast. Finally her uncle decides to marry her off, dangling a generous dowry to entice former suitors to reinstate their offers. A bungling secretary erroneously accepts on behalf of scornful Ian, so, baggage and duenna in tow, Elizabeth lands at the door of Ian's hunting lodge. They eye each other warily, irritation and sheer bafflement vying with passion. McNaught is at her best with these two willful lovers; and fans should welcome the reappearance of Jordan and Alexandra Townsende (from bestseller Something Wonderful ) . Fastidious readers may be irked when McNaught's prose plummets into ``the stormy splendor of the pagan kiss'' or by an occasional anachronism. (Apr.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
