Among the Ten Commandments of romance novelists are: In the Beginning, thy heroine shall hook up with her hero; they shall not have a smooth time of it; and thou shalt have no endings but happy ones. The suspense rests on the how, not the what. Kudos to Lindsey for the inventive circumstances she's concocted in this tale of courtship between a stubborn English lord and the lovely young daughter of a Highland Scots aristocrat.
