Early Review: Once upon a tartan – Grace Burrowes

Hester MacDaniel is recovering from an engagement gone awry by summering at her brother’s holding in the Highlands, and looking after her brother’s young step-daughter, Fiona. Tiberius Flynn, heir to the English Marquis of Quinworth, appears on Hester’s doorstep claiming he’s Fee’s paternal uncle, and he’s been sent by her English relations to make the girl’s acquaintance. Tye believes his brother’s dying wishes compel him to take Fee south with him, but he doesn’t plan on Hester capturing his heart, even as she fights him tooth and nail for custody of Fiona.

Mass Market Paperback, 384 pages, Expected publication: August 6th 2013 by Sourcebooks Casablanca , MacGregor Trilogy #2, Historical romance. From the publisher for an honest review

My thoughts:
I said I was sure to read it in a day and so I did. There is just something with Burrowes’ romances that makes me wanna read and read and not put them down before I know what happens.
Victorian times, Scotland, and a sad heroine. Hester felt a bit different as she left London in a scandal and is now staying with the McGregors (as her brother in the previous book married a McGregor..and then more, just read it and find out ;). She is looking after young Fiona. Hester was very kind, sweet, curious and getting over what happened. She had a calm over her that I liked.
Tye, oh Tye. I know he meant well. Yes I liked him cos he was all sweet and caring. But he did not always think what was best for Fiona when he came barging in. But still he was so….so, mmm. I wanted him and Hester together, they made sense. And at the same time I knew the drama was coming and was scared. Even though we all know everything will work out in the end.
Another easy and sweet romance from Burrowes. I like this one the most in the new series. In book 1 too many people fell in love 😉 
I like it

    I haven't read anything by this author, so I'm intrigued. For some reason, I've been in a romance-y sort of mood, but I just generally wait for the next Jill Mansell. 😉

    I've never read anything by this author, but given that this is your series favorite, it seems like a great place to start! I love sweet, easy romances every now and then. Great review! 🙂
