Having read a couple of stories about women running away from home to escape an unwanted marriage or attachment, it’s refreshing to know how often the trope can be played with by inventive writers. Eva MacKay starts out skittish, frightened, timid and easily terrified by shadows. But that’s understandable; she grew up under a tyrannical, brutish, punitive father, a man who destroyed her life when it suited him and was willing to fob off his only child to another to cleanse the stain on his family name. How she gains courage and learns how to love is a story of aching tenderness and joy. This is a romance novel, so of course we hope and expect that she will learn the happiness of a gentle man that she never knew with her father. But the steps to that happiness are fraught with anxiety, wariness and misunderstandings not just for her but for the man who wonders if her rejection of marriage is because of him. Secrets and lies complicate matters (don’t they always?) but they are definitely part of the story and occur as a natural progression of stated events. This novel is a pleasant diversion from bland re-workings of the runaway-bride trope and rather light on the expected violence. After a succession of dully written erotica, it’s refreshing to find one that occasionally defies expectation.
