    1 thought on “Perfect Strangers”

    1. Basic plot run-down: Elizabeth Tudor desires peace at the Scottish borders and orders lady in waiting Gabrielle Carelton to marry Scotsman Collin Douglas, but twin brother Connor has a mind to marry her himself and has her kidnapped. Despite Gabrielle being a bit plain and pudgy (at least Elizabeth's court thought her so), Connor is instantly taken with her womanly charms and can't keep his hands off of her. I was in a sleep deprived state brain-candy kind of mood and was looking for a lighter r [...]

    2. This is one of those "late night downloads" which I succumb to after midnight, not wanting the night to end. I read the first 20 pages and thought the brogue really cool. It has an interesting premise and good start, but does not manage to keep my interest. Connor was supposed to be this great warrior in the Borders. To avenge something against his brother Colin, which I could not figure out, he abducted his brother's English bride, Gabrielle and intended to marry her himself. Thinking all Engli [...]

    3. Feuds go back a long way.Gabrielle Carelton is ordered to marry a Scotmans named Colin Douglas to reacquaint alliances between England and Scotland Borders. Their marriage would put an end to the vengeful feuds that have been getting worse by the day between the English and Scottish. This is one feud that's on the verge of being repaired by one simple marriage. TillConnor Douglas also known as the Black Douglas,(his notorious name is enough to make you quiver) takes refuge and steals the spotlig [...]

    4. This is a must read historical romance. I completely fell in love with this book and I'm certain you will too.Perfect Strangers is set in the beautiful 16th Century lands of England and Scotland.It's the sotry of Gabrielle Carelton who is on her way to Scotland from England to wed Colin Douglas to end all feuds between the Maxwells and the Douglases that have been going on for the past century. But on her way she is kidnapped by Colin's twin brother, The Black Douglas, ConnorConnor kidnaps Gabri [...]

    5. I was really looking forward to this book and started right away . and I can't even say that it wasn't good. The characters were very loveable and I really liked Gabrielle and Connor and they had some very very sweet (and very long) romantic scenes but - the story itself was somewhat flat.Oh, sure all the ingredients for a good book were there but somehow I felt as if there should be a bit more then just Gabrielle getting kidnapped over and over again and when well, let's just say that I wouldn' [...]

    6. I found this a lovely quick read. Lots of twists and turns in this romantic story about Gabrielle who is sent by Elizabeth to Scotland to marry Colin Douglas as a means to end a longstanding feud. Along the way she is kidnapped by Connor Douglas. Kidnapped again by her ancestral kinsmen and Colin. Who wins her heart?

    7. Perfect Strangers (A Historical Romance)A really good tale, even though it took longer to read because of the dialect. Strong characters and a good plot. An enjoyable romp indeed.

    8. I was lured in my a Scot. Seriously. That should be on a bumper sticker. Gabrielle gets shipped off to the Highlands to marry a Douglas. Trouble is, she ends up at the keep of the WRONG Douglas. He's tall, he's muscular. And he's called THE BLACK DOUGLAS. (That's got to mean something, right? Somethingdastardly.) Except he's hot. And really, he's just misunderstood.I wanted to love this book. Hot guy in a kilt -- hello!!! Gabrielle was nothing but a bunch of tropes stuck together. She's plain an [...]

    9. Enjoyably readI enjoyed this book. It has a lot of humor not just sex with a hot highlander. Waiting for next book.

    10. In 1603, Gabrielle Carelton was a lady in Queen Elizabeth's court for 6 years. Black of hair, green of eye, heavy of weight, Gabrielle sees herself as a plain looking, plump woman. While she will devoted to her queen and her country, she is not afraid of speaking her mind when occasions warrant it. After the Queen compares her to a stuffed goose, she suffers even more from insecurities about herself.When Queen Elizabeth calls a meeting with Gabrielle to take place in the early morning, Gabby is [...]

    11. I really enjoyed this book, and yet thinking back on what I've read I can't say the story was intricate of even had a lot going on. The appeal was the writing and knowing the major plot line was that Gabrielle was being sent to wed Colin Douglas by Elizabeth I. Only she doesn't make it to her betrothed but instead is whisked away by his brother's men. And his brother is none other than The Black Douglas.What I really liked is the book felt very intimate. You are along for the ride when Gabrielle [...]

    12. I was asked to read/review this book and since Historical Romance is one of my favorite generes to read besides Paranormal, I jumped at the chance. I have to say the cover art for the book is absolutely beautiful, makes you want to dive right into the story. I have to say this is a Historical Romance at it's finest, It has everything you want in a Historical Romance, I love reading from the 16th Century England/Scotland. Gabrielle Carelton is on her way to meet Collin Douglas her betrothed, but, [...]

    13. Ok – I have to admit, the picture perfect specimen on the cover captured my attention before anything. Did you look?! Well, go back and LOOK! I also have a predisposed fascination with Scotland as my ancestors hail from the great country of Scotland. I love the brogue. I love the bagpipes. I love the kilts. I would someday like to visit Scotland, and I would like one of those men (from the cover). Perfect Strangers captured the love between Gabrielle Carleton and Connor Douglas magnificently. [...]

    15. Reviewed by DeanaBook provided by the author for reviewReview originally posted at Romancing the BookReading historical romance is new for me. I think I made the right choice in reading Rebecca Sinclair’s Perfect Strangers, which is a delightful Scottish romance (this was a first for me). Perfect Strangers has a well written plot, the characters are well written and developed authentic and witty dialogue and full of emotions that pulled me from the beginning. The book is written with Scottish [...]

    16. ** For the full review please check out read2review **Perfect Strangers by Rebecca Sinclair is the tale of love between a Scottish laird and one of the queen’s maids. My favourite part of the story is that Rebecca made Gabrielle a stout and sturdy woman whose self image has been damaged by cutting remarks made by Queen Elisabeth. Gabrielle travels on orders from the queen to be betrothed to Colin Douglas when she is kidnapped by his brother, Connor, who plans to marry her instead. Connor had n [...]

    17. Queen Elizabeth of England has asked Gabrielle to marry the Scotsman, Colin Douglas, in order to help end an on going feud. Once Gabrielle has accepted her fate, she decides to just be glad she is not marring Colin's twin brother, Conner Douglas, aka the Black Douglas. On the other side of things, Conner has decided to steal his brother's bride. Mostly to get back at Colin for the past, but also in effort to make peace with the warring Maxwell clan and benefit with an heir in the process.This bo [...]

    18. RRAH's THOUGHTS AND PONDERINGS: All I have to say is, WOW! This book blurb doesn’t do this book justice. It seems that the author has published this story in 1996, and did some ‘ironing’ of it and re-published it last year. I’ve never had the pleasure to read this author before, but that will certainly change right now.This was such a warm and touching story. It’s so much more than just romance. It’s a painting of a time long gone, yet brought to life in such vivid detail. I was made [...]

    19. This story completely took me by surprise as it was authentic, unpredictable, and cute. Gabrielle must marry against her wishes, but there is a mix up and she ends up with the wrong brother. There are lots of twists and turns so any additional plot synopsis would give the fun away. I thought the romance was sweet. the plot engaging, and the characters fun. I liked how all the characters were different and had a more complex side than what was initially introduced to the reader. I was slightly ir [...]

    20. So, I've tried to read this book twice now. As much as I hate to admit it, I just can't get into it. It's very well written and I like the characters, but for osme reason, I just can't seem to get more than a couple chapters in.I hate this because I haven't read far enough for the book to even begin to kick off. I feel like I'm not really giving it the chance that it properly deserves.So in fairness, I've decided that in the future, I will come back to this book and give it another shot. Hopeful [...]

    21. I liked this book quite a bit. The story is a little different than many romance novels. Gabrielle isn't devastatingly beautiful and is a little over weight. She doesn't want to marry Colin, and she really doesn't want to marry his twin brother Conner who kidnaps her. It was nice to see Gabby and Conner fall in love. I liked her, she didn't always feel so great about herself, but she knew she was worth more than being a brood mare. Good story, not too much sex, I like my stories a little hotter [...]

    22. What a wonderful Historical romance story, I was hooked the entire time. It was sexy, sweet and very HOT. The characters were very believable, and easy to fall in love with. The storyline was fascinating; with turns that kept you hooked. I felt the story was written so well, that you felt like you were there with the characters through their journey! I would recommend this to anyone who likes a good Historical romance novel.Rating:5 out of 5 stars

    23. "You've flipped your kilt!"I've read hundreds of Highlander books and I have never heard that before! This was a very cute story about the descendant of The Black Douglas (he, too, referred to as such because he was a notorious, fierce Laird) and a plain, plump girl from Queen Elizabeth's court he was forced to marry. I thoroughly enjoyed it. :)

    24. Didn't like the abrupt ending;(However, the plot line was nice, better than a lot of romance books I have read, but I still felt like it could have been a bit more exciting and intriguing, which would have automatically made this 5 stars.Overall 4 stars, a good read;)

    25. Perfect strangersI really enjoyed Colins and Gabbys story. An an intimidating border lard and an English court miss find love in the time the borders were dangerous.
