I am voluntarily submitting my honest review after receiving an ARC of this ebook from NetGalleyThis is a fast paced entertaining read While I found Calum and Amy's love story heartwarming and authentic Eachann and Georgina's journey felt contrived and forced After Eachann ruined Georgina's reputation and cost her everything including her last chance to save her family home and legacy no matter how far fetched that hope seemed then relegated her to the role of hired help the likelihood of bloodshed seemed probable than romance The culmination of Eachann and Georgina's story seemed to take an abrupt turn that just rang false to me While Carried Away is not my favorite novel by Jill Barnett I will continue to look forward to reading her new works

Jill Barnett belongs to that special group of writers who I loved in my youth together with Julie Garwood Jude Deveraux Mary Jo Putney and the like I have read most of her books Some I really loved and others I liked well enough This is the first Jill Barnett book that I felt oh well I probably did not have to read this book This book is about 2 brothers Calum and Eachann From their names you could tell that they were Scots I am kind of fuzzy on the timefram in this novel Goodreads lists this book under contemporary but for the life of me I could not imagine how kidnapping women to an island would be permissible in a contemporary romance Calum and Eachann lived on an island close to Maine yes the state They were descendants of a highland clan with Calum being the laird The book has 2 main stories Calum and Amy and Eachann and Georgina The beginning chapters introduce these 4 main characters to us then we also get to know Eachann's 2 unruly children Once everyone is introduced Eachann kidnapped Georgina for himself and Amy for Calum brought them back to the island and magical fog made traveling back to the mainland impossible these people started interacting with each other You get the idea Jill Barnett has her way with words and it is still evident in this book But the story or stories rather are kind of boring Calum the uiet one is paired with Amy the fragile flower Eachann the brute is paird eith Georgina the shrew I get the characterization but the relationships hold little magic Eachann's children did not help They were brats needing parental attention and only added to my annoyance It is not a poorly written book at all but the storytelling is sorely lacking I do like Calum and Amy better than Eachann and Georgina but this has a lot to do with my shrew aversion I regret to say that I would not add this book to my favorite Jill Barnett pile If this is your first Jill Barnett please do not judge her by this book She has much much better offerings and is a talented writer Her characters are endearing and real her heros are especially wonderful This book reads like an afterthought It is as if she didn't have a story for the book but had to write something anyways Not her best work
