New York Times bestselling author Karen Hawkins's first historical romance, originally titled ONE LUCKY LORD and written as Kim Bennett, has been rewritten to tie into both her "MacLeans" series and her new "Hurst Amulet" series.« less
I love the MacLean series but the plot on this one is really lame. And that is saying a lot since my expectations on romances are rather low. I do love all the characters though. At the end when everything got explained away, I was left feeling like I wasted a lot of time.
This book is a rewrite of an earlier book. It is on the "hokey" side, but still an entertaining read. In it the author shows how the MacLean "weather" curse got started and has a lead-in to the basis for her new series. It is a fast read and I would recommend it for its whimsey and mystery.
