Good Highland romance. Part of the MacAllister series.
Very simple, feel good love story. The moral of the story was basically opposites attract or beauty is found in the eye of the beholder. The heroine Nora although beautiful drives everyone insane because she never shuts up, I found it funny. She is so inquisitive about everything, she doesn't want to be married to who her father promised her to so she runs to the feared and tormented hero, Ewan MacAllister. Ewan was a fierce bear with a heart of a teddy once it is touched by Nora. He lives in a cave in silence and wants nothing to do with the outside world, he feels he is responsible for his favorite brother's death. Nora is on a mission to get away from her betrothed and she wants Ewan to take her to her aunt, the queen, for help. Ewan thinks she is nuts with her constant chatter and silly mission, yet she grows on him as he opens his heart to her. There wasn't anything shocking or new to this story, but I loved it because the H/h were the perfect match for each other and no one else would have had them. I related a lot to this book because I do feel people are puzzles and sometimes they only fit one way to form the picture. There was a line in the book that was touching and I am going to list it in my favorite sayings. "A jovial person can be happy with anyone, when a sad one laughs he treasures the one who brings him sunshine." I have read a few books from Kinley MacGregor and I will read more when I need that light, easy going read.
