Nd sets out to reclaim the man she briefly and passionately loved Stunned by his denial her heart softens when she learns of the injury that has ravaged his memory Now she faces the nearly impossible task of conuering his past and his fierce reluctance to share his heart Though desire flares hot and wild between them it will take to win his trust It will take the magic touch of a woman in love. UghDiarmot is a poor man's Connor I give this book its low ratings due to the incosistency with the memory One moment he remembers everything the next he is still gathering it all in His memory was just used to stretch out a conflict and it didn't feel natural I couldn't really feel the chemistry between Diarmot and Ilsa His asshole ish behaviour is excused by his paranoia over people who mean him harm On the top of his suspicious persons list is Ilsa He conveniently forgets that he did not think his keep was safe before he met Ilsa In truth I wish of the Diarmot she fell for was there Instead she is presented with an asshole who thinks poorly of her but not poorly enough to leave her alone He deigns to consummate their marriage despite thinking she is a murderer I don't really get why she stayed if she was so adamant about not meeting him in the first place The whole book was just inconsistent with characters being manipulated to create a conflict The big villain in this story is his dead wife's lover It was explained away as madness which is another convenient way to avoid any depth on the villain's part She was supposed to marry Diarmot and kill him but Ilsa showed up and presented evidence that Diarmot was already married Diarmot having suffered a head injury forgets Ilsa He looks upon her with suspicion Meanwhile Ilsa's heart is broken over his wariness He eventually remembers but keeps his suspicion They get the issue resolved but not before Ilsa confronts Margaret I'm not a big fan of this book Ilsa fell in love with Diarmot but when they reunited he was a stranger He was a suspicious dick but she remained in love with him I wish of his past self was revealed to illustrate why Ilsa loved him Instead their past love is used to justify on why Ilsa is putting up with his actions

Highland GroomHannah Howell continues the breathtaking trilogy of the wild hearts of Scotland that began with Highland Angel in this passionate take of a wife determined to blaim the husband she lovesSir Dairmot MacEnroy deciding his illegitimate children need a mother and his keep needs a proper lady now stands before the altar with a gentle bride he hopes is too shy to disrupt his life or break his heart. “Just as the priest asked if anyone knew why Diarmot and Margaret could not marry there was a disturbance at the doors of the church and a clear angry woman’s voice said ‘I think I might have a reason or two’Shocked Diarmot looked behind him and his eyes widened Marching towards him was a tiny woman with brilliant copper hair Behind her strode eight large scowling red haired men She held a bundle in her arms and a small dark haired girl walked beside her carrying another”I’m mostly over Howell’s incredibly repetitious books ooo she’s tiny never saw that coming but how could I resist that This plot about the man discovering he has a wife and twins he'd completely forgotten has intrigued me since I first heard about it and I was thrilled when I found it at the library It turned out to be a pretty good read My main complaint was that it was overly long; in particular the hero is stubbornly distrustful of the heroine and callous towards her for too long Just for starters he takes her to the nursery containing his six other children she hadn’t known about and tells her “Just toss yours in with the rest” At one point Ilsa thinks “Her attempts to win her husband’s respect and affection were beginning to feel like like self determination and like self flagellation At what point did she cross that fine line between patience and humiliation” Well before the end of the book if you ask me and Diarmot doesn’t suffer nearly enough despite getting nearly beaten to death twice I prefer mental anguish Ilsa gives so much and suffers so much and he isn't nearly as affected by it as I'd likeI wasn’t crazy about the obvious unsubtle mystery plot either though thought that Howell redeemed it by the end by making the villains have some interesting albeit cliched back story If you haven’t read much Howell before you might like this than I did because she can seem uite refreshing and original until you discover that all her books are original in exactly the same way Worth a read if you like stories about heroines who take over the castle and fix everything up and it's got some laughs too
