Didn't care for it overall. Ian is supposed to be attracted to Elizabeth's intellect and well as her beauty; from her behavior most of the time, I found her intellect to be non-existent.

Judith McNaught knows how to write a romance novel.

I loved this book, who doesn't love the story of 2 star crossed lovers who can't get on the same page at the same time? Ian and Elizabeth to me is the best love story I have read. I have read about 5 McNaught books and this one is a reread real soon. You want to just love orphaned Elizabeth immediately and get on her side to give Ian a lesson. I loved Jordan and Alex in the book and can't wait to read again.

The usual Judith McNaught...you can always count on her for a wonderful Sunday lost between the pages of a faraway land of romance, magic and fantasy. This book, as are most of hers, is hard to put down, once you have started it.

Ian Thornton is a handsome man and can be dangerous to a young lady's reputation. Elizabeth is dared to get closer to him by some friends but is unaware that she is the target of their malicious jealousy. As she is scorned by society she ends up in debt and her brother goes missing. Ultimately she is forced to marry in order to save the home she loves. There are MANY ups and downs during their relationship. Some I felt were insurmountable and I felt would definitely be deal breakers in a real relationship. However, Judith McNaught definitely pulls it off and it was another great romance!

The Countess of Havenhurst possessed a rare gentleness and fierce courage to match her exquisite beauty. But her reputation is shattered when she is discovered in the arms of Ian Thornton, a notorious gambler and social outcast.

A dangerously handsome man of secret wealth and mysterious lineage, his voyage to Elizabeth's heart is fraught with intrigue, scandal and a venomous revenge.

Destined for each other, yet wary of each other's motives, Elizabeth and Ian engage in a dance of suspicion and passion that tests the very soul of their star-crossed love. As a twisting path of secrets takes them from London's drawing rooms to the mysterious Scottish Highlands, Elizabeth must learn the truth: is Ian merely a ruthless fortune hunter at heart?

A classic Judith McNaught book. I have multiple copies of it because it's such a great book. She's clever in the banter of her characters. You can feel the emotions that they are feeling because of the clarity and depth of the writing. A must read for romance readers.

I wasn't that excited to read this (what can I say... I base the books on their covers, and this one is pretty boring!), but as soon as I started reading it I was hooked! It's such an amazing book, and the ending is really great! This copy has some loose pages, but none are missing and it wasn't enough to impede my reading.

This is a story about a Scottish man, Ian Thornton, who ignored gossip and the ton's idea of right and wrong who fell in love with an innocent girl, Lady Cameron, at a country house party. They were manipulated by a jealous friend of Lady Cameron's and she was compromised, thus shunned by the ton. Two years later they are forced back together and they made amends eventually and married. As good stories go, they become separated due to events that took place at the time of her fall from grace at the house party 2 yrs previous and because of Ian's Scottish temper. Meantime he accepts his title denied his father by his father, he's arrested for wife's and brother-in-laws murders, Lady Cameron disappears. In the end they are together but I'll leave that for you to read about. Was a good story if you like strong willed, arrogant men and strong willed, determined ladies. A good read. I'm not good at summarizing stories and I don't like to tell the story so I hope I have told you enough to captivate your interest enough to read the book.
I just discovered Judith McNaught in a previous book, Something Wonderful. Also a good story. Hope this helps.
