Synopsis from Goodreads:

After her father and brother disappeared, Lady Jane Lennox is managing Bellhaven Castle. Nonetheless, her aunt has invited six suitors to compete for the right to her hand - and to protect Bellhaven's towers of cool pink-gray stone.

Among the six is Nicholas Kincaid, the one-time object of Jane's affection. Two years ago, her brother banished Nicholas. A mere “sir,” in want of title or land, Nicholas was not marriageable material. Now, Nicholas will compete in challenges of wit and skill, rather than heraldry. But against noble swordsmen, dancers, and charmers, can he possibly win back her heart?

Adult-content rating: This book contains content considered unsuitable for young readers 17 and under, and which may be offensive to some readers of all ages.

My Review:

Russell is a very visual author. She builds up a world that you could easily step into. Each and every aspect is intricately put together without detracting from the fast forward pace of the story proper. She draws you into this captivating world and draws you along for a captivating ride. Romance, mystery, and intrigue abound keeping you guessing and thinking throughout. I could barely put this one down.

I loved the characters in this novel. The panel of bachelors brought in to this story are all captivating and breathtaking in their own manner. I also appreciated how the main character isn’t perfect. She attempts to be who others want her to be rather than herself. That said, she is intrinsically a good person who wants what’s best for those around her. Watching her journey of self-discovery is priceless.

Overall, think the bachelorette with a historical & suspsenseful twist. Well worth the read any time of year.
