Gabrielle Carelton is one of Queen Elizabeth's most devoted ladies-in-waiting. But her loyalty is put to the test when Her Majesty commands her to marry Scotsman Collin Douglas. When Gabrielle is kidnapped by Collin's twin brother, not even Good Queen Bess can save her. Dubbed the Black Douglas, devilishly handsome Connor is known throughout the land for his magnificent feats of strength and cunning. But now he is in need of an heir. An English bride will bring peace to the warring nations - and give him the son he craves. What he doesn't expect is a woman as passionate as she is proud - and a desire that knows no boundaries. Set against the pageantry and savage splendor of 16th-century England and Scotland, here is the story of a man and a woman who begin as enemies and strangers - and find a love that will triumph against all odds.

My Rating: Mini-Review: Perfect StrangersThis 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 irritated at the constant reminders that Gabrielle was overweight and not very pretty.  I got it but I didn't need it on every page.  I understood that it played into her self-esteem but really, I just wanted to focus on the romance.
