A review of Miranda's Mount by Phillipa Ashley - Five*
When Miranda finds herself fighting for her home, her job and her heart, sleeping with the enemy may not be the best tactic...
With no family of her own, Miranda Marshall has developed a healthy respect - some would say obsession - with other people's histories. As property manager of a spectacular island castle in Cornwall, she's made St Merryn's Mount one of the UK's most popular heritage attractions. While she may have the castle running like clockwork, Miranda hasn't bargained on its sexy owner returning to claim his birthright.
Dark, handsome and with a rakish reputation, Jago St Merryn not only looks like a pirate but is intent on flogging the Mount to a soulless leisure corporation. Miranda faces the battle of her life as she tries to persuade him to face up to his past and continue the St Merryn dynasty. But Jago has his own reasons for jumping ship and when he throws down the gauntlet to Miranda, she's forced to delve into painful memories she'd much rather keep hidden . . .
Just reread this for the second time and it was just as good as the first time! Miranda has a job I would have loved in a place I have always loved! It is obvious from the writing just how much Phillipa loves Cornwall!
I love Phillipa's feisty females and Miranda is probably the best one! She fights tooth and nail for what she believes in and the ending is like a fabulous reward for her and the readers! And, as always, the hero is gorgeous!!
