"Despite fame and countless admirers, actress Marcail Beauchamp has never forgotten William Hurst, the audacious seafarer she once loved...and lost. Now, forced by a mysterious blackmailer who threatens her family, she must steal an ancient onyx box from the one man she's vowed never to see again. To save his brother from a ruthless abductor, William must deliver the artifact as ransom. He's stunned when Marcail, more lovely than ever, suddenly appears on his ship. But when she drugs him and steals the box, his fury knows no bounds. William pursues Marcail, but too late: she has already delivered the box. The estranged lovers realize they must work together--both to regain the artifact that could mean life or death to his family and to destroy the mysterious blackmailer's power over her family. Thus begins a high-stakes quest through the reaches of Scotland, a quest that stirs up long-forgotten memories and an unquenchable passion..."--P. [4] of cover.… (més)

Liked that I had read the first book as brief references to Mary's drawings brought back thoughts about that story. Enjoyed that Marcail was able to put one over with the drugging. Good that William and Marcail could realize that their life experiences had helped them grow. Impressed with Marcail staying grounded as to what is important with family rather than letting her fame as an actress get in the way. Romance but still maintained a story that moved along. ( )

While not terrible, the story was somewhat underdeveloped. The premise was ok - an impoverished daughter of a peer turning to acting as a career to support her family and then being shunned because of being an actress - there were gaps in the plot. The "Scandal" was not very scandalous and "in Scotland" was very misleading because only a very small portion of the story took place in Scotland. The book was 333 pages but in a relatively large font so I would consider this more of a novella rather than a complete novel. Finished the book and felt like the story was lacking. ( )
