Highland Scoundrel: A Novel - Monica McCarty I don't think the first chapter should have been first. It took all the suspense and romance out of the story. IMHO the story would have been better had this chapter fallen in sequence. I kept waiting for the other shoe to drop.

Though I liked both Duncan and Jeannie, I thought the story dragged and took longer than it should have for these obviously in love people to figure out the treachery that caused Duncan's exile. For two people who supposedly loved each other to distraction, neither trusted the other when it counted which caused this tragedy. I didn't like this book as much as the other two in the series.
