money returned that is owed his family The person who owes him this Quentin Campbell, the Earl of Duncannon, also known as the former friend and neighbor of Lachlan s father Duncannon owes over thirty thousand pounds to Ross s clan and he intends to get this debt settled once and for all.Lachlan has come up with a plan to get Duncannon to repay the money, by kidnapping his only daughter and demanding the money owed him before he will return his daughter to him.Venetia Campbell is on a trip in Scotland when she meets a man at a masquerade ball There is something very familiar about this man but she can t quite put her finger on it He reminds her of her neighbor from her childhood, Lachlan Ross, but she knows it can t be him because it is reported that he was killed by the Scottish Scourge.Lachlan s plan went perfectly, he gained Venetia s interest in him and her trust and then he kidnapped her Venetia was stunned Not only is Lachlan Ross not dead, but he is also her fathers

small carriage with the man is rekindling all of those feelings she had before.I loved the pull and the tension between Venetia and Lachlan Venetia is a feisty heroine, she is constantly trying to escape her captor, but Lachlan always hunts her down But Venetia s tenacity doesn t anger Lachlan, it only makes him want her even.And I loved Lachlan s character I have marked him as a favorite hero because he knows what he needs to do to take care of his family and his clan and he sets a plan and he follows through with it He is a take charge kind of man and won t take no for an answer, except when it comes to Venetia He gradually softens towards her thetime they spend together and the closer they get I love the Scottish men anyways This particular one can kidnap me anytime Reviewed for

Third, he didn t understand the nature of the debt And last, he didn t see how quickly he would fall in love with Venetia Now he s trapped by his own plan and can t see a happy ending Good thing Venetia has plans of her own.I enjoyed the interplay between these two strong willed characters as they sparred their way across Scotland Ms James pacing was fabulous and there weren t any drags in the story or the action Her depiction of the highlands and the troubles from this time period were perfect for this type of novel The time of the clearances was an absolutely wretched time for the Scottish and I appreciated that she didn t try to ram this down my throat, but rather illustrated the hardships via characters and actions in the plot I was pretty impressed with this, as I ve read many a romance that focused so much on the difficulties of this period that I ended up depressed after I finished the book She portrayed the hardships without belittling them, but still kept the tone of the book light Beware a Scot s Revenge was also pretty hot on the sensuality scale I felt the attraction and the confusion and the indecision of both characters Each of them had tough choices to make and did so while staying true to the natures she had drawn for each I ve enjoyed all of the School for Heiresses books I ve read can t wait to read the rest Sweet and lovable story with humorous dialogs and characters you can feel This is definitely the best Sabrina Jeffries book I ve ever read Those who are familiar with her know her books are on the light, fluffy side, so you have to keep that in mind before you pick this up.I LOVE when villians in previous books become the hero, so of course I was excited that this one was to be about the Scottish Scourge, who had previously tried to rob Amelia and Lucas, the main couple from the first book.Okay, so Characters Lachlan I LOVE him, eventhan I expected to It w This is definitely the best Sabrina Jeffries book I ve ever read Those who are familiar with her know her books are on the light, fluffy side, so you have to keep that in mind before you pick this up.I LOVE when villians in previous books become the hero, so of course I was excited that this one was to be about the Scottish Scourge, who had previously tried to rob Amelia and Lucas, the main couple from the first book.Okay, so Characters Lachlan I LOVE him, eventhan I expected to It was refreshing to have a hero that actually cares about what the heroine thinks of him I don t think I ve ever read that in a book before they always end up caring by the end, but Lachlan cared from the very beginning Everything he does is for the good of his clan There is nothing villianous about him As for Venetia, I liked her a lot, too She s not one of those I know everything heroines who goes about doing things just to prove she can She has a big heart It did take a LONG time for me to feel her love for Lachlanin fact, for some reason I was able to feel that Lachlan loved her, but I didn t sense her return feelings She did all the required things someone in love will do, but it didn t come off the pages Story The basic premise is that Lachlan kidnaps Venetia, holding her for ransom to get money to support his clan I know the whole hero kidnapping the heroine thing has been done many times, but somehow it felt new here I think it s because Lachlan and Venetia knew each other as children, so that gave it a different feel She had really liked him, and it wasn t her being taken by some scary, mysterious guy she d never met before Also, Lachlan was completely good to her the whole while, and Venetia never REALLY feared him She claimed she did, but it s obvious she didn t It was fun to see Venetia eventually figuring out that Lachlan actually is a good guy What bothered me though, was the end It seems as if every romance novel ends with the hero having to come to some decision, or realize that he can t live without the heroine especially in Sabrina Jeffries books this is getting old Can t authors come up with a new climax And it s silly here, too, because he had already figured out that he was in love with her, and ADMITTED it to her, so for him to just try to give her up like thatit felt really fake I don t believe Lachlan would have acted in that way I understand why he suposedly did it, but I just don t think it was a good enough reason.Other than that, I really enjoyed this one I just wish that ONCE an author will not make the hero out to be the stupid idiot bad guy toward the end, even after it has been established that they love each other Even in historicals, where the heroines are almost always painfully naiive, the hero has to suddenly become a blind dummy Why They spend a good part of the book being intelligent, and then BAM Their IQ decreases Cute Scottish historical romance with likable leads Not the usual time period for Scottish historicals, it was nice to see Scotland a few generations after Culloden The romance was sweet, I like how the hero never treated the heroine badly even when he was very angry with her father Check this out if you like Scottish historical romance I didn t hate this book but I didn t love it I liked it The plot seemedinteresting than it ended up being.The letters at the beginning of each chapter were not needed I know it furthers a story within this series or whatever, but

before running into a few obstacles with her running, or running into old friend etc.The heroine, Venetia, she was probably doomed to spinsterhood because she had all these wishful thoughts of highlanders and those ballads that she collected were preventing her from liking all the english, boring, stuffy guys She meets the hero at a ball where he is masked and the next day he shows his face

this whole series, although not in order, and this being my second time reading Beware A Scot s Revenge, and despite it being a couple years since I have read it, I still found myself mystified by such a magical romance This is my favorite of the series, and I fell in love with both of these in depth characters that were portrayed so well throughout the story The plot was enticing and exciting, filled with romance, adventure, intrigue and a powerfully portrayed romantic story This is definitely a first rate romance that will suck you into the story from the first line So if you have yet to

another romance with a headstrong heroine, who never gives up on her heart s desire Smart, vivacious, witty, adventurous, and courageous, this reader couldn t help but love her In many ways though, the hero didn t live up to the heroine He was loveable on some tragic plane because of what he had suffered in his life However, he made so many bad decisions, one after another, I couldn t help but end up so aggravated and angry Truly by the end, I felt the heroine deserved so muchthan what she was going to end up with Evenfrustrating, the hero almost always realized his stupidity in decision making afterwards, but just kept repeating them He just never seemed to learn Of course, by the end he seemed to, but it really was rather too late for me I still enjoyed the story and plot and think most readers of historical romance would like it If however, you put most of your stones in the hero s basket, it may be bound to sink `READ KINDLE ⇔ Beware a Scot's Revenge ↳ Someone s going to call
