To review

I have been listening through all the Wallflower books, and now we have a Wallflowers meet the Ravenel book ( I still need to read all those Ravenel ones, not finished yet.)

Merrit is a young widow, taking care of her husband's shipping business. Her father is the Earl of Westcliff, and aye, it was just yesterday she was born, I do remember so clearly.

Keir is a whisky brewer, very gruff and so Scottish. I liked him at once. They have business together and meet. Sparks fly.

It is lust at once. But she is trying to be respectable so she can do her own thing, and he is not worthy a high born lady. I get it, lust, and it leads to love. Sure it was fast, but it worked.

Then there is the mystery aspect. Is someone trying to kill him?! And why?! Intrigues.

I enjoyed it.

Great narrator. I certainly enjoyed her Scottish brogue. She was great with different characters and made the book great.

Lady Merritt Sterling, a strong-willed young widow who’s running her late husband’s shipping company, knows London society is dying to catch her in a scandal. So far, she’s been too smart to provide them with one. But then she meets Keir MacRae, a rough-and-rugged Scottish whisky distiller, and all her sensible plans vanish like smoke. They couldn’t be more different, but their attraction is powerful, raw and irresistible. From the moment Keir MacRae arrives in London, he has two goals. One: don’t fall in love with the dazzling Lady Merritt Sterling. Two: avoid being killed. So far, neither of those is going well.

Keir doesn’t know why someone wants him dead until fate reveals his secret connection to one of England’s most powerful families. His world is thrown into upheaval, and the only one he trusts is Merritt.

Their passion blazes with an intensity Merritt has never known before, making her long for the one thing she can’t have from Keir MacRae: forever. As danger draws closer, she’ll do whatever it takes to save the man she loves... even knowing he might be the devil in disguise.


  1. OOh mystery and intrigues in a historical romance sounds good Blodeuedd

  2. It's fun to watch the kids grow up and have their own HEA.

    There were a few Nora Roberts series that did that.
