Helpful Score: 5
Saucy story indeed. There's a lot of sex/sensual scenes in this book. I think the author was very good at setting them up, though. The lead characters are well developed. The main "issue" between the hero and the heroine's father is solved all too easily, making the ending kind of rushed. I personally saw that resolution/explanation coming from a mile away.
Sabrina Jeffries has just been added to my list of favorite historical romance authors! I immensely enjoyed reading this story in which the plot was built on actions that grew out of the characters' personalities -- the actual process of falling in love drove the story! I loved it.
Lady Venetia Campbell's visit to her childhood home in Scotland takes a dramatic turn when she's kidnapped at pistol point by her father's sworn enemy. Sir Lachlan Ross is widley feard in his guise as the Scottish Scourge, but Venetia remembers her former neighbor as a handsome youth whose attentions she craved. now a wickedly sexy man, lachlan's appeal is even mor intoxicating...and much more dangerous.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book...the characters were real and some of the situations they get themselves into were very funny! A great read!
Sir Lachlan Ross has tried to collect on a debt owed by the Earl of Duncannon for years, but has never had any satisfaction. So, he decides to take matters into his own hands and kidnaps the Earl's daughter, Lady Venetia Campbell. He'll hold Venetia at his home in the highlands until the Earl brings him the ransom money. But things don't go as planned. Lachlan thought Venetia would be a spoiled brat, but she turns out to be a warm caring woman that Lachlan likes right away. As they travel through Scotland, Venetia stops trying to escape from him. After learning about the debt her father owes the Ross family, Venetia wants to talk to her father and hear his side of the story. She just has to wait for him to come and get her.
This is an enjoyable historical romance. It's the third book in Sabrina Jeffries' School for Heiresses series. Lachlan and Venetia are both appealing characters. He needs the money to take care of his clan. Venetia's loyalty is torn between her father and the man she has fallen in love with. My rating: 4 Stars.
