    Once Upon A Highland Summer is a single title by Lecia Cornwall Its a short novella, about 100 pages, and I received a copy from Avon through Edelweiss I wasn t sure how much I would enjoy this one, since it was a novella, and I tend to be a tad picky with the shorter stories However this story just cemented my desire to read from this author I was impressed with how well structured the story seemed to be considering the length I didn t feel at all like it was too short, it felt quite perfect The characters were well developed and it was fun seeing these two fall in love admidst the highlands in the sweet summer days As with most stories typical of this era and style, there was the usual conflict of the hero being engaged to someone else, and a mistaken identity, and having to choose duty over love But there was a little side story of Alec and Carlonline s grandparents that added a certain hitch to the story The way that Lecia Cornwall put in her descriptions of the surrouding were so details and vivid, I almost felt as if I was there in the story, smelling the beautiful scents and seeing the breathtaking scenery A great story that I would recommend to anyone that love a solid romance with the romantic setting of the highlands and a sweet love story to tug at your heartstrings A Tale you NEVER should wish to miss out on.

    DNFI enjoyed Beauty and the highland beast but this one was not my thing Still, I tried to finish it and I was almost at the end when I just thought, ugh, I give up The we cant be together cause I need money but, hey its ok to sleep together trope is not my thing The worse part is that it all worked out in the end but not because the otp worked for it It fell like a present on their laps Other people changed their minds, and voila, you can be happy YAY Not..Don t think I ll be giving the second book a try. The synopsis doesn t look that good either

    Once Upon a Highland Summer has several things going for it a pair of star crossed ghostly lovers, a supposed curse, highlanders and kilts, mistaken identity, and love triangles and Alec McNabb is the next in line to the earldom of Glenlorne Glenlorne has seen its better days especially before the massacre at Culloden where 7 of the 8 McNabb brothers were slain The remaining brother was banished when his family found out he intended to have an Englishwoman as his bride Remember this is the time where Jacobites were rebelling against the Crown because they believed Bonnie Prince Charlie was the rightful heir Families were split apart as some believed in the Crown and others for the Bonnie Prince Angus McNabb tried to restore Glenlorne and his son drank than tried to refill his coffers.Angus and his lady love they are ghosts mind you decide they want their grandchildren to be together and fall in love and finally unite their bloodlines, something they couldn t do in life They and or fate bring together their grandchildren in a very curious way.Alec working as a thief for the Crown has failed his mission in recovering 8 love letters from a lady and Prinnie And in doing so has alerted her husband to her affair and the fact that his daughter, Lady Sophie Ellison, belle of the Season, is not really his daughter, but the Prince Regent To get revenge on her, he decides to wed the daughter to not nobleman as was expected, but to a poor, titled gentleman Alec to be precise as he has a title, but no money Alec doesn t want to, but with a dowry of 60,000 pounds, he can restore the name and provide for his tenants and sisters But before all this, he stumbles upon a young woman Believing she s feeling to Scotland to elope, he feels for her and decides to give her money so that she can safely arrive there He doesn t get a good look at her, but given her circumstances decides he wants to see her to safety That young woman is Caroline, escaping her home because her brother is forcing her to marry a man of his choosing Rather a brash decision, if you ask me, but she flees in the heat of the moment She doesn t see what he looks like either, but perceives him as an angel as he s providing a means to escape.Once in Scotland, she gets another sign of where to go, she takes the position of a governess to three young woman These three young women happen to be Alec s half sisters And when he sees her for the first time, he thinks she s beautiful, but for some reason thinks she s Sophie That her father decided to send her to Scotland to be married and somehow made it before him He thinks, well shoot, this is going to work out splendidly.I admit I thought he love scene was too early, but it makes sense in terms of the plot I just didn t think it was going to happen so fast I mean jeez that potion and extra helping of whatever that herb was really did the trick Ha, imagine if that potion was sold One could blame the quick love making to the potion, the giddiness of the bonfire and festivities or the call of two souls how sappy but I enjoyed how Angus was the voice of reason and questioned how come they didn t introduce themselves I mean really they spoke what a handful of words before getting it on on the plaid Blame it on the ale A bit too quick and without enough words for my taste Time flies quickly as several weeks and later a few short months passes in the castle As soon as that s described I was totally thrown off Everything is described to have occurred within days but weeks and or months have passed We don t really know what the characters are up to during these time Did Alec and Caroline really just ignore one another while staring longingly at one another After her family comes to get her it sets off a chain of events where the two characters are sort of communicating with one another, but I didn t understand not see how they could have fallen in love with one another Alec wants to do right by Caroline but wants to do right by his tenants and sisters so he chooses to marry Sophie There were times where I so rolled my eyes at his actions because he just casually asks where is she going to go or how is she going to survive Like even though we re supposed to believe it s killing him we don t get that feeling Other than their physical appearances what is it that attracts each other The story ties up a little too nicely It gets a little silly in the end and maybe it s because there are a little too many characters, love triangles, duty and all that I thought there would be a bit drama and deeper drama at that Everyone coasts into their happy endings rather than really fight for it like I thought they would Alec was sorta just there He didn t fight for Caroline because he was so duty bound, blah blah, but at one point he does say he s not doing the honorable thing for Caroline He tries to set her up and doesn t quite say it but wants Caroline as his mistress That was alluded to, but Caroline is the one to put a stop to that idea I thought it was Caroline s story than caroline and Alec s story which is a bit of a shame But regardless it was a enjoyable for what it was The McNabb sisters will have their own books and it ll be interesting to see how much they ve changed and grown from teenagers to young women.

    solid highland book Lots of skipped time though, which really made their romance kinda confusing, timeline wise The ghosts were the best part.
