More books with Scotsmen in it. Yay!

I've been reading quite a lot lately since it's one of the few things that doesn't hurt.  One of the best ones lately is Beware a Scots Revenge by Sabrina Jeffries.  One of my favorite things about this book is the inside cover art.  I giggled when I first saw it, and I still giggle when I look again or just think about it.  Check it out here!

I soo need to get a plaid and try it out.  He he he he.

Anyway this is the third book in Sabrina's School for Heiresses series.  I've read the other two but you don't need to read them before you read this book.  I liked this book because it

a) it has a Scotsman in it
b) he kidnaps our heroine
c) it has a very handsome, of course, Scotsman in it.

The heroine Venetia Campbell, okay don't really like her name, not even sure if I pronounced it correctly, is our heroine who desperately wants to go home to Scotland, only her father won't allow it because of his deep dark secret.  But when news reaches that the Scottish Scourge is dead, he allows her to go to Edinburgh but no further with her Aunt Maggie.  It is here she meets our hero Sir Lachlan Ross at a masquerade dressed up as Bonnie Prince Charlie and she as Flora MacDonald.  (Man I love the named Lachlan) .  They banter, they talk about wearing the plaid the old way, aye, the old way. :)

The plot is very good, even the old falling in love with her kidnapper, well truth be told she had always been in love with him.  Him confronting his past and her father's past, defeating said past so everyone can live happily ever after.

It has some very funny moments, some good scenes, and over all a good book.  Much better then the last one I read by Eloise James, she's hit or miss and her latest is a miss.

So this one is a very solid 9 out of 10.
