Prefect Strangers By Rebecca Sinclair

Gabrielle Carelton is one of Queen Elizabeth's most devoted ladies-in-waiting. But her loyalty is put to the test when Her Majesty commands her to marry Scotsman Collin Douglas. When Gabrielle is kidnapped by Collin's twin brother, not even Good Queen Bess can save her. Dubbed the Black Douglas, devilishly handsome Connor is known throughout the land for his magnificent feats of strength and cunning. But now he is in need of an heir. An English bride will bring peace to the warring nations and give him the son he craves. What he doesn't expect is a woman as passionate as she is proud and a desire that knows no boundaries. Set against the pageantry and savage splendor of 16th-century England and Scotland, here is the story of a man and a woman who begin as enemies and strangers and find a love that will triumph against all odds.

Elena's thoughts:

Feuds go back a long way....

Gabrielle Carelton is ordered to marry a Scotmans named Colin Douglas to reacquaint alliances between England and Scotland Borders. Their marriage would put an end to the vengeful feuds that have been getting worse by the day between the English and Scottish. This is one feud that's on the verge of being repaired by one simple marriage. Till.....

Connor Douglas also known as the Black Douglas,(his notorious name is enough to make you quiver) takes refuge and steals the spotlight and ruins his brother Colin's plan to marry Gabrielle by abducting his bride and wanting to marry her himself.All plans are set into motion. Till ........

Yet, another Feud begins, between the Douglas and Maxwell's. As you can see, lots of coins are being flipped,this novel was a page turner. It's been a while since I've read an Historical Romance. It took me a while to get used to the heavy Scottish accents, but, Boy oh Boy! It was worth it! The plot of the story was very dramatic and eventful which kept me reading it non-stop.There's love, romance, jealousy and suspense.

First off, if you love Scottish Hotties, with a possessive streak and all man from head to toe, you'll love Connor! Gabrielle, (his heroine)was soft in the beginning of the novel, but she grows stronger by each page I turned. I loved her for her willingness,strong and easy going character that she was. The one woman to snag Connor's heart and bring him to his knees with just a smile is what made her a perfect heroine. I loved it!! The emotional conflicts between this couple, was hot tensioned,strong,sexy,intriguing and all together just DELICIOUS!! Their relationship becomes stronger & stronger as the book progressed. Charming couple!

This was my first go,at reading a novel written by Rebecca Sinclair. She put a lot of thought, determination and time to write this novel,so therefore by me giving it a 5star rating,it's a definite "HECK YES" I will read another wonderful well written novel by this author.
