SYNOPSIS: Settled in the tranquil remoteness of the Scottish Highlands, Ardnoch Estate caters to the rich and famous. It is as unattainable and as mysterious as its owner —ex-Hollywood leading man Lachlan Adair—and it’s poised on the edge of a dark scandal. After narrowly escaping death, police officer Robyn Penhaligon leaves behind her life in Boston in search of some answers. Starting with Mac Galbraith, the Scottish father who abandoned her to pursue his career in private security. To re-connect with Mac, Robyn will finally meet a man she’s long resented. Lachlan Adair. Hostility instantly brews between Robyn and Lachlan. She thinks the head of the Adair family is high-handed and self-important. And finding closure with Mac is proving more difficult than she ever imagined. Robyn would sooner leave Ardnoch, but when she discovers Mac is embroiled in a threat against the Adairs and the exclusive members of the estate, she finds she’s not yet ready to give up on her father. Determined to ensure Mac’s safety, Robyn investigates the disturbing crimes at Ardnoch, forcing her and Lachlan to spend time together. Soon it becomes clear a searing attraction exists beneath their animosity, and temptation leads them down a perilous path. While they discover they are connected by something far more addictive than passion, Lachlan cannot let go of his grip on a painful past: a past that will destroy his future … if the insidious presence of an enemy lurking in the shadows of Ardnoch doesn’t do the job first.
Here With Me is Book 1 in the new Adair Family Series!
REVIEW: I loved the underlying plot of the story. I didn’t know exactly what was going to ensue, which doesn’t happen often. The romantic suspense part definitely kept me guessing! I do like how well Samantha Young writes these emotionally charged characters and scenes. There is so much depth to all of these characters. It was such a weird mix of people, but in a really good way. The fact that the characters are all fairly close in age, even though that includes a dad and a daughter, also played into the fact that the dynamics were not typical and added a lot to the story. The connections and friendships were just so interesting. The pace did seem a little slow to me, but I just think this book was a little on the longer side and I might not have been in the mood for that. There was more than one big thing that happened, so I kind of thought I was at the end of the book a few different times. Luckily, I did really enjoy what happened and I am sincerely looking forward to finding out what happens to the rest of the characters in the next books! Especially Robyn’s Dad!!
