Eden Marlow was less than delighted when Scotsman Ramsay MacLean offered her the position of mistress & proceeded to show him by bashing him soundly. Ramsay has met his match! Eden is one of my favorite heroines, she has a backbone!! And Ramsay is a lovable scoundrel. This novel also has interesting secondary characters.
The characters of Eden, the young, innocent, prim and proper lady, and Ram, the Highland Laird, who is fighting demons from his past are wonderful. Betina Krahn describes them beautifully. He must marry her to gain his inheritance and even though he is strongly attracted to her, as she is to him, he finds that his demons are coming between them. Her family is very enjoyable and add to the humor that is in this book.
A classic Betina Krahn novel. I thought it wouldn't kill the hero to be a bit less pompous but hey all of Krahn's heroes are! The heroine was gorgeous and bright (a little bit flaky at the beginning but nothing dreadful) and he worships the ground she walks on even though he's secretly terrified of giving in to his wild, uncontrollable lust regarding her. If you like Krahn you should like Hidden Fires.
