I received Christmas in the Scot's Arms as a gift just in time for a lovely Christmas read. As some of you know I LOVE Christmas stories. They are probably my favorite theme for a story. I mean how could it get better than a fabulous romance story set at the most wonderful time of year?
I devoured Julie Johnstone's latest story in one setting. There was no way I was putting this book down until I finished reading it. I had to see what was going to happen next.
Laird Liam MacLeod is in London to spend time with his sister's intended's family. He is for an unexpected treat when Miss Cecelia Cartwright tumbles into his life. Liam is a caring gentleman and does something extremely sweet for Cecelia that made my heart happy.
Cecelia Cartwright is a sweet, fiercely independent, and smart young lady. She has the world on her shoulders and she is trying desperately to figure out how she is going to support herself and her mother. She has been shunned by the ton for something that truly was not her fault and she was placed in a position that was unfair but not viewed that way by many.
Liam and Cecelia find they get along well and spend some time together. Liam doesn't mention a detail that is quite important. That adds in a bit of tension and suspense wondering what is going to happen between these two. Is it possible they may be able to find their happily ever after or is the secret that was not revealed quickly enough going to make it impossible for them to find their happiness.
Ms. Johnstone always does a fabulous job with a historical romance. This one is no exception. She had me flipping pages just as quickly as I possibly could. I could not wait to see what obstacle Liam and Cecelia were going to have to find their way over next.
This book is part of the Highlander Vows: Entangled Hearts series however I think you will find it will stand on it's own just fine.
If you are looking for a marvelous historical romance Christmas story then I suggest you grab this one up. I don't think you will be disappointed I know I certainly was not.
