To Scotland, With Love

To Scotland, With Love by Karen Hawkins (2007)

Description: When Lord Gregor MacLean learns his childhood friene, Venetia Oglivie, has been abducted by a fortune hunter, he rides off to Scotland in hot-and very annoyed-pursuit. Venetia's soft heart has gotten her in major trouble this time: if he doesn't rescue her swiftly, the scandal will ostracize the provocative wench!

The only sensible member of her family, Venetia is sure she can fix any problem, even this one. So when an irate Gregor catches up with her, arrogantly expecting a hero's welcome, the sparks between them begin to fly. Then an unexpected snowstorm traps them at an inn, and Gregor discovers his feelings for the lovely Venetia are far warmer than he realized - fiery enough to burn down the inn! Now if he can only convince Venetia that his motive her marriage isn't duty... but desire.

Review: This was most definitely a quick, enjoyable read. Although the title seems to imply that part of the story would take place in Scotland, that is actually hard to determine. About the only thing that would give any relation to Scotland away are the blatantly obvious names of the male characters. Overall, I enjoyed the read, but do not pick it up if you are looking for anything that resembles a plot. If you seriously have nothing better to do, I would pick it up, otherwise you might want to pass this one up.

Score 2.5 out of 5
