"A Really Nice Romance"

This was a really nice romance that reminded me a lot of Nora Robert's style.

In case you're one of the few who hasn't read it: It's about three Scottish brothers who have doomed romances with three women of another clan, and this results not only in the destruction of both the clans, but also in the brothers being sentenced to various purgatories until they make amends.

Three hundred years later, the last three female members of the clan Claren find themselves on the receiving ends of the McKinnon brother's attentions.

The story is told in three parts, and though the other characters are usually present in them, each part focuses on one couple. I liked the first the most, for it seemed to spend the most time with the couple, allowing them to develop their relationship. Nonetheless, since destiny was involved, it wasn't much of a stretch to find the quickness of the relationships believable.

This was a nice read, and it finally pulled me out of my romance slump.

Three centuries ago in Scotland a curse was born of the long-standing feud between the Claren and the MacKinnon clans. Now, generations later, destiny has decreed that three women, the last of the Claren line, be granted one final chance to set things right.

Maggie, Cailean, and Delaney Claren are three cousins who grow up unaware of one another-until an inheritance brings them together. Now mysterious journals and the deed to an ancient Scottish castle will bring them face-to-face with the warriors at the heart of the MacKinnon family, three brothers sentenced to cruel fates by a terrible curse.

Duncan is trapped in the form of a ghost, Rory must live an immortal life alone, and Alexander has been wrenched by time from the past to the present, with no way back. Ferociously compelling, dangerously relentless, they are bound by no mortal laws-except desire for the three Claren women. The journals speak of one key that can break the powerful spell. And finding that key will plunge them all into a world of unforeseeable danger and tantalizing desire....
