Three Little Secrets was probably my 2nd favorite of the series. This is Merrick's story. He and Madeline were married 13 years ago. Madeline's father, Jessup, who was politically ambious found them in Gretna Green, Scotland. He convinced Madeline that Merrick had marrried her for her money and did not love her. In fact, Merrick had agreed to an annulment for the sum of 30,000 pounds. Madeline believed him and left Merrick to head home for England. Meanwhile, Jessup's thugs were beating Merrick nearly to his death. It took him 5 weeks to recover from his physical injuries; however, he carries his emotional injuries with him for the rest of his life.
Madeline and Merrrick meet again 13 years later. Time has not changed their passion for one another. There are so many hurtles to get through: pride, secrets, distrust, and love. It is a wonderful story about two people who shouldn't be able to get past their own history together, but love conquers all. The book also has a slightly paranormal element.
This was a great story,with well developed characters..I did unfortunately find both of them tedious after awhile. The continued over use of the same excuse became exhausting to read. They did have great fire and sparks when ever they were around each other. The twists it takes do add a level of excitement to the story.
Deliciously clever dialogue, superbly nuanced characters. gracefully witty writing and sizzling sexual tension are neatly in place in this the first of a new trilogy by this superb author!
Third in the trilogy. This one about the "Dark" MacLachlan, Alisdair's brooding brother. Did we know he'd been married as a youth? Hot, hot, hot!
Great book, Every character was a keeper
If you read Liz Carlyle's books- many of her characters will be familiar to you. This was a great read- rather quick if you read fast but enjoyable.
Not one of the best books I read from this author...best luck to the next reader.
Excellent story of Scotsman Merrick MacLachlan and Madeline, Lady Bessett. The prologue is riveting - and then the story gets even better! Many recurring characters from Carlyle's previous books.
Third book in the 'Sin, Lies and Secrets' Trilogy ... loved all three of these Historical Regency romances.
Good story. Nice romance.
This book was a wonderful conclusion to Ms. Carlyle's trilogy!
National bestselling author Liz Carlyle concludes her scandalous new trilogy with a senuous novel of two star-crossed souls who share a secret or two ....or three.
