Kirsty Thompson is the youngest of the Thompson sisters and is the most impetuous. She’s intelligent, business minded and beautiful but her latest actions to get Professor Albert Watson’s help with her importing Scottish wool has landed her on a departing ship she can’t get off. He’s a medical doctor but is a researcher on his way to England for a presentation but curtails his trip in New York to accompany Kirsty back to Philadelphia. Never mind the damage to her reputation but the men seeking to prevent her younger brother from claiming the family’s birthright pose a threat to her safety during the trip.
Even though Kirsty had many a rash moment, she was hard to stay upset with as she was so high spirited, interesting and resourceful. Her developing relationship with the conservative Albert surprised not only him but Kirsty herself. But Albert was determined to make her his wife not only to save her reputation but because of his strong feelings for the woman. However, in addition to those men seeking to harm her and her family, his own pretentious and ill-behaving mother might derail his efforts.
I always enjoy being back with this unconventional family and Kirsty made it fun. Albert had a lot to learn about romance and he had to step outside his nature to convince Kirsty to take a chance with him. There were exciting moments involving her business venture and an abduction attempt. But the real charm of these stories is the relationship between the Thompson siblings and their new extended families. Kirsty and Albert just made it more heartwarming.
