You never forget your first love

This is book two in Julie Johnstone’s Scottish Scoundrels: Ensnared Hearts Series. Having loved her Scottish Medieval series of books I was unsure how I would like the return to the regency period, I can honestly say they are great. For me the fact the hero Nash, is dark, brooding and a ruggedly handsome half Scot, has a lot to do with it. He is tortured by his past which draw our heroine Lilias to him. Lilias is light where he is dark, she too lives with a painful past but is determined to not let it break her. They are drawn to each other when they meet as children, but outside forces keep them apart until they meet years later. They are both determined to fight the pull towards one another, each believing the other has wronged them. As secrets are revealed to them they realize a love that has never died and they are incomplete without the other. Julie is one of only a handful of authors that writes from the heart, her characters have depth and are believable. Her heroines are strong, independent women who find heroes that give them the freedom to be who they truly are in a time where most women had no voice or say in their lives. The series gets better and better, I cannot recommend this book enough. A fabulous read from a very talented author.
