I loved the premise of this book. Annabel, who's been training to become a nun, is suddenly whisked away to fulfill a contract her sister ran out on to marry Ross, a Scottish Laird. Overall, I liked the characters, the setting and the story.
Why did I give it a 3 out of 5? It's hard to put in to words. There were parts of the story I LOVED. The beginning? I adored it. But then there were parts that were so...predictable maybe? Like Annabel is constantly being kidnapped, or threatened, or chased. And every time it happens, Ross tells her she has to stay at the castle until they capture who did it...and every time she 'finds a good reason to leave'...and it happens ALL. OVER. AGAIN. It's a big part of the book. I think overall it happens about 5 or 6 times. It becomes a little draining after about number 2 or 3, and you kind've want to skip ahead.
Annabel is very likeable, and so is Ross. And I think they work well together! And while I predicted the ending, to a certain extent, you're still pleasantly surprised how everything turns out. There are also a few parts that you think, that really didn't just happen, did it? But overall, a very nice read, and I'm glad I gave it a go.
