A Reader's Opinion: A QUESTION WORTH ASKING by Angeline Fortin
A READER'S OPINION
Secret Suffragette meets sexy Highlander James Mackintosh, one of ten children, is done with watching his brothers falling in love. The happiness all of them have found is what has eluded him, and what he covets in secret is a woman to love him unconditionally, and a family. Year after year, the young debutantes keep on getting younger and younger. The decision made, he heads to the Americas and perhaps his luck will change. Primrose Eames is a widow after 10 years of marriage. Prove to a husband that she's not an empty-headed female is the last thing she needs and she has no desire to subject herself to a dominating man. Primrose is not what she seems and she has a secret—one that she guards carefully—until she meets James. Everything about him should have her running in the other direction, but she's drawn to him like a moth to fire. James is intrigued with Mrs. Eames and he sees a passionate woman behind the uptight picture she portrays. He wants to unravel every layer that hides the woman, and he has decided to make her his own!
Will outside forces keep them apart? Or will someone close to them create a misunderstanding that has an impact on their blossoming love? What a great story of a friendship turned into a strong mutual respect for each other. Allowing the equality of the person and not the gender, allows a love to bloom that will last forever. Angeline Fortin really captivates the reader, drawing them into the lives of her characters until every emotion is felt.

The halls of Glen Cairn Manor churned with so much love and wedded bliss of late the sight had become downright sickening. James MacKintosh couldn’t understand how his brothers had managed to fall love-struck one after another. Not when they all knew as well as he how such an emotion could send a man from heaven straight to the bowels of hell. But, damned if they didn’t somehow make it all look so bloody appealing. New York suffragette Primrose Eames had more than enough men trying to control her already. There was no chance she’d relent and marry again, despite her brothers’ dogged “encouragement” on the matter. More than anything, she wanted independence and the freedom to live life on her own terms. A husband would only serve to snatch that dream away from her forever. What Prim needed was a decoy and James MacKintosh was just the man for the job. Having failed in his search for the perfect woman to wed, James was happy to help Prim with a false courtship, but only because it served his purposes to avoid the matchmakers as well. However, James soon discovers that even a fictitious courtship with a woman set on never remarrying has its own challenges. For Prim, the courtship begins to feel all too real. James is too charming, too engaging and so supportive of her cause. It doesn’t take long before she realizes there is a certain freedom to be found in marriage the right sort of man. If the right sort of man were interested in marriage, that is. It’s only when betrayal and despair leave them both longing for more in their lives that they realize the importance of a love worth having, and a question worth asking.
