Llynmore Castle is the only place Annabel Lockhart has ever considered home. For years, she’s been able to live as she wished, freely roaming the wild moors. Now there’s a new earl, as arrogant as he is handsome, and he wants her out. But if he thinks she’ll go quietly, he’s in for a surprise.
Theo Townsend returned from war a changed man. After unexpectedly inheriting an earldom and a secluded castle in the Scottish Highlands to go with it, he thinks he’s found the perfect place to hide from the world—until he arrives to find a spirited, beautiful woman already in residence. He can’t just throw her out, but surely there's a way to get her to leave on her own. The sooner she's gone, the better, especially when he realizes there’s more than just mutual dislike between them.
Annabel Lockhart and her aunt have lived in the castle for years. It´s their home and she will not give it up without a fight. She also has someone else she must protect.
Our hero is mentally and physically damaged from his war time experiences. Closing himself away is the only answer. Our heroine has not had a happy life and doesn't want to give up what she has.
A very emotional story that will tug on your heartstrings, and where you will easily fall in love with all the characters. This story is historical but could just as easily be contemporary. Coping with the after effects of battle and feeling unloved can happen to anyone.
I loved it.
