Blog Tour: Virtue and Valor by Collette Cameron; Review + Giveaway

Virtue and Valor (Highland Heather, Romancing a Scot #2)
Author: Collette Cameron
Release Date: 24 June 2015
Publisher: Soul Mate Publishing

Bartholomew Yancy never expected to inherit an English earldom and had no intention of marrying. Now, the Earl of Ramsbury and last in his line, he’s obligated to resign his position as England’s War Secretary, find a wife, and produce an heir. Only one woman holds the least appeal: Isobel Ferguson, an exquisite Scotswoman. Brought to Scotland to mediate between feuding clans, he doggedly woos her.

Disillusioned with men pursuing her for her attractiveness, rather than her unusual intellect, Isobel has all but abandoned any hope of finding a husband in the Highlands. Not only does she believe Yancy no different than her other suitors, he’s a notorious rake. She’s been told he’s practically betrothed. Therefore, his interest in her cannot possibly be honorable, and so she shuns his attentions.

When Isobel is mistakenly abducted by a band of rogue Scots, Yancy risks his life to rescues her. To salvage her compromised reputation, her brother and father insist she marry him. Yancy readily agrees, but Isobel—knowing full well she’s fated for spinsterhood by refusing his offer— won’t be coerced into marriage.

Yancy and Isobel's story is one I've been looking forward to for a while. I love how this story blends in the characters from previous books as well.

Yancy has decided it's time to let go of his roguish ways and find a suitable miss to marry. Whenever he contemplates marriage it is always Isobel Ferguson who comes to his mind. Yancy thinks that the interest he's seen from Isobel in the past will make her an easy choice and that her placid and perfect ways will make her an ideal countess. He's about to find out he's so wrong.

Isobel once had a hopeless infatuation with her brother's close friend, the Earl of Ramsbury. Since her hopes were dashed and her eyes opened to the scoundrel that he is, she has tried her hardest to ignore the feelings he stirs within her. Unfortunately her heart refuses to listen to her head. Isobel is a fun and independent heroine who often hides her true feelings under a demure demanourm but Yancy certainly brings out her fiery side.

I loved how Yancy and Isobel's relationship develops. It starts out a bit antagonistic, although Yancy has no idea why and does his best to charm Isobel. It's great to see Yancy start to realise that Isobel is actually a very intelligent woman and to see him acknowledge her as such. I loved their chemistry and that Isobel can't quite resist Yancy no matter how hard she tries.

This is a fun story that starts out quite light hearted before the plot takes a turn for the more serious. I enjoyed the circumstances that brought Yancy and Isobel together, even if it felt like my heart was in my throat at times! There's excitement, danger and passion woven throughout the pages and this story is another fab addition to the series
