♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ½ I loved the idea that the fictional hero of Maddie’s letters comes to greet her in real life. The letters to MacKenzie were awesome.. I laughed out loud a lot! I love it when there are letters involved in stories. The way she keeps changing his name. “MacFantasy, MacSleepy etc” too good! Both leads were wonderfully developed characters, and I didn’t want to stop reading.

Here's the blurb:
On the cusp of her first London season, Miss Madeline Gracechurch was shyly pretty and talented with a drawing pencil, but hopelessly awkward with gentlemen. She was certain to be a dismal failure on the London marriage mart. So Maddie did what generations of shy, awkward young ladies have done: she invented a sweetheart.
A Scottish sweetheart. One who was handsome and honorable and devoted to her, but conveniently never around. Maddie poured her heart into writing the imaginary Captain MacKenzie letter after letter … and by pretending to be devastated when he was (not really) killed in battle, she managed to avoid the pressures of London society entirely.
Until years later, when this kilted Highland lover of her imaginings shows up in the flesh. The real Captain Logan MacKenzie arrives on her doorstep—handsome as anything, but not entirely honorable. He’s wounded, jaded, in possession of her letters… and ready to make good on every promise Maddie never expected to keep.
