Received for Review (From Author)

I enjoyed this book. I love Aunt Gwen and her friends from the novella, “How to Stop a Wedding in 7 Days or Less”. I like Derek Saunders and his stepbrother Percival very much. Derek is a good man and trying to help his aunt with her somewhat fraudulent Lady Travelers Society and Assistance Agency. When India Prendergast threatens legal action for misleading her missing cousin Heloise, he decides to stall her by taking her to Paris to look for Heloise.

This is my favorite of Julia London’s The Highland Grooms series. Rabbie Mackenzie is a lost and broken soul after the battle at Culloden Moor that devastated the Highlands. He had not joined the rebels, but was sympathetic to their cause. While his family stayed out of it, much of their land and village was still destroyed by the English.

This is the second book in Julia London’s Highland Grooms series. The hero, Cailean Mackenzie, is the son of Arran and Margot from the first book in this series. At a young age, Cailean had his heart broken by an English girl, who led him on but “could never marry a Scot”. As such, Cailean has no plans to ever wed and is building a home not far from his parents and an unkempt hunting lodge owned by some Englishman.

Daisy, Lady Chatwick, a widow with a young son (Ellis), is almost out of time to remarry per her late husband’s will.

Wild Wicked Scot – 4 stars

This is the first book in the Highland Grooms series and I enjoyed it very much. It’s set in the early 1700s and Julia London has the political intrigue and plots very accurate, if my memory is correct.

Laird Arran Mackenzie has kept his clan out of politics and well off from his shipping and trading ventures. His dealings with the English Lord Norwood, have brought him a barony and an English bride.

Note: I didn’t think I could like Eric when I started this book and by the end I loved him. I truly believe it was because of Beth!
