Energetic and expansive, good-natured and lusty, with enough flouncy dresses and galloping steeds to equip a comic opera, the sequel to Say You Love Me should delight Lindsey\'s many fans. From the moment that Melissa MacGregor and Lincoln Burnett set eyes on each other, they know they must be together. There\'s just one little problem actually, 16 very big problems: Melissa\'s uncles, who remember Lincoln as an out-of-control kid when they were growing up in Scotland. (After losing his father in an accident when he was a little boy, Lincoln was sent away by his mother to live with an aunt and uncle in England, and his bitterness toward his mother has grown ever since.) The uncles\' obsession with Melissa\'s safety is just the excuse the clan of six-footers needs to treat Lincoln with brutish incivility for instance, conniving to stow him on a slow boat to China. But love cannot be shanghaied in a Lindsey novel, at least not for long, especially when it has a heroine like the strong-willed Melissa. The lovers pass one test after another, in the drawing rooms of the London season and the rugged terrain of the Highlands, meanwhile sharing hot kisses and the requisite night during which nothing goes unsaid or undone. What makes Lindsey special is that all her characters, major and minor, seem thrilled to be in the story; they manage even to have fun while pining or punching. There are no villains, only flawed human beings, occasionally misdirected by their loving hearts.

Even though this was a pretty good story, I definitely expected something better from this author. This story didn't keep me glued to the pages that many of her others did. I was a bit surprised that such a long book could be contrived from such a lame plot.

Wow, Johanna Lindsey never ceases to amaze me! This is a great story. A MUST read! The suspense, adventure or misadventure, surprises and romance are terrific.

A chance encounter before her presentation in London causes many adventures and misfortunes as a courtship that will never be forgotten. Especially by her family. To win her love, Lincoln Ross Burnett must prove to all of her many half-brothers that he has changed from the lad that they knew. And only his mother whom he has been estranged from for many years knows the truth of what caused his bazaar behaviour those many years ago.

Book 3 in an excellent trilogy. I liked this book- lots of humor-esp with the 16 uncles who all think they know what's best for Melissa. They seem to be always under foot scaring off her suitors. They are a big pain in Lincoln's arse too-even try to shanghi him off to China. Very funny with some heart wrenching parts too.

Synopsis
In this lighthearted historical romance Melissa and Lincoln have fallen in love. All should be well but there is one problem: Melissa's 16 overprotective uncles remember Lincoln's rather wild childhood and hence don't approve of the match. But times have changed and even as the uncles set out to destroy his relationship with Melissa, Lincoln works to prove himself a man worthy of her love--and of her uncle's respect. Will Melissa and Lincoln be able to prove to her uncles that their love is true?

What was to be a grand adventure for Mlissa MacGregor-an escape from the wilds of her Scottish home into the whirl of the London social scene- seems to pale before the promise in the passionate gaze of Lincoln Ross Burnett.

What was to be a grand adventure for Melissa MacGregor - an escape from the wilds of her Scottish home into the whirl of the London social scene - seems to pale before the promise in the passionate gaze of Lincoln Ross Burnett. Though they exchange but a few words before parting after a chance encounter on her grandfather's lands, Melissa instantly knows this bold stranger is her destiny, while Lincoln realizes his heart has been claimed forever and he will never be complete until Melissa MacGregor is his bride.

But there are of course some serious obstacles. I wasn't sure how she was going to pull this one off! But she did, and it was fun. It hung together pretty well. I liked this one a lot, and this author is one I'm looking forward to reading more of.
