Knowing that they will get hell from them afterwards, the three oldest brothers give the key to the cell to Miles. All in all, it was diverting, and I loved the fact that she wasn’t some meek apathetic heroine: Devegaux, that all said, I do remember absolutely loving Highland Velvet back then, so much so that I re-read it a few years later and still loved it.
