As the two explore both the corporate paper trail and the local seascape, Duncan reveals that he's actually a Scottish lord, while Willow is forced to grapple with her fear of commitment. Occasionally I like to mix it up and read a nice historical romance or some hot contemporary story. This was definitely a likable read, plus it's been sitting on my library shelf for years yes, years! Right off the back, Duncan aka Dunky and Willow aka Counselor steamed up the pages with their chemistry. Duncan's made it clear his ready to take the next step while Willow is hesitant and basically goes the opposite directions every time a serious relationship talk comes up.
They blend together so well from the beginning that it's hard not to enjoy them as a couple. Duncan moved to Maine from Scotland and opened a bar two years previously, while Willow is a local AG and works on cases non-stop unless she's visiting her sister, Rachel, in Puffin Harbor. Whenever Ducan and Willow see each other, they bicker, they flirt, they secretly share kisses and more. This was a quick read for me, maybe since it was a nice change from my normal reading style, and the mystery part to the story flowed smoothly throughout.
Didn't feel rushed or bada-bing-bada-bang abruptly finished at the end, like some stories can be. Just an easy HOT read. I enjoyed the town's betting pool for when --or rather if the wedding between Duncan and Willow will take place and having the various citizens of the Harbor admit who and how much they bet on.

There are definitely a lot of characters going on throughout the story and perhaps if I would have read Book 1 The Seductive Impostor first, I wouldn't have been confused trying to remember who was who.
