Man Of The Mist (Harlequin Historical, # 313)… by Elizabeth Mayne
Secrets of the past have a way of coming back to haunt everyone, Elizabeth Murray saw that past walk in her front door. It had been five years since Evan MacGregor had seen his wife, but walking into that house and knowing that she had never revealed their marriage to her own family still caught him by surprise. Finding the husband she regretted marrying had made his return to London left Elizabeth more concerned than ever about keeping all of her secrets a quiet, especially from the only man she had ever truly loved.
***3 - London 1808 - Lots and lots of characters, at first difficult to sort out, but as things progressed it became easier to figure out the relationships and the connections. The highlander brogue also left me re-reading several paragraphs until I got used to the style and slang of the speakers. There is no real ‘villain’ to this story other than the hero/heroines themselves, and even they didn’t provide much action to the story. This story is emotional charged with deceit and lies as the main plot line. Some of the traditions and customs used were confusing as described, but a good Harlequin Historical that was published back in 1996.
