Title: Falling for Katie (Romancing in Scotland #2)
Author: J.M. Ralley
A romantic suspense set in modern-day Scotland.
After a car accident, Katie Gowen wakes up in a house with a man she doesn’t recognize. Unable to remember anything about her past, Angus persuades her they are married. Held against her will, Katie struggles to come to terms with her predicament, but as they are snowed in, she can see no way out.
Returning to Gretna wasn’t on Finlay Gallach’s itinerary. Memories of an unhappy childhood still haunt him. However, the moment he opens the email from Katie’s father, he knows he’s in trouble. As a photo of Katie stares back at him, his heart breaks for the missing woman, and he vows to do anything to bring her home.
It becomes a race against time for Finlay to save her. But can Katie recover from her ordeal and allow the love to blossom between them?
Twisted and dark, Katie’s life is a race against the clock to get away from the madman who’s saved her life but who is also her worst nightmare.
In this Misery-esque story, Katie is a budding business owner. Getting her flowers out into the world is her dream and when she gets a large order for a wedding, she is ecstatic. Getting the order together builds her confidence, and she is happy to finally make the delivery. On the way home, however, her luck changes when she crashes and is taken home by Angus.
With suspense on every page, we see the growing concern of Katie’s loved ones when she doesn’t return as well as the confusing “domestic” life that Angus tries to trick Katie into. The characters were well fleshed out, each with their strengths and weaknesses clearly defined.
Interesting read for fans of dark romance.
