Review: When a Scot Ties the Knot by Tessa DareWhen a Scot Ties the Knot by Tessa Dare

Date Read: July 2015


On the cusp of her first London season, Miss Madeline Gracechurch was shyly pretty and talented with a drawing pencil, but hopelessly awkward with gentlemen. She was certain to be a dismal failure on the London marriage mart. So Maddie did what generations of shy, awkward young ladies have done: she invented a sweetheart.
A Scottish sweetheart. One who was handsome and honorable and devoted to her, but conveniently never around. Maddie poured her heart into writing the imaginary Captain MacKenzie letter after letter โ€ฆ and by pretending to be devastated when he was (not really) killed in battle, she managed to avoid the pressures of London society entirely.
Until years later, when this kilted Highland lover of her imaginings shows up in the flesh. The real Captain Logan MacKenzie arrives on her doorstepโ€”handsome as anything, but not entirely honorable. Heโ€™s wounded, jaded, in possession of her lettersโ€ฆ and ready to make good on every promise Maddie never expected to keep.

First Thought when Finished: When a Scot Ties the Knot by Tessa Dare just landed at the top of my favorite reads of 2015!

Quick Thoughts: I will be rereading this one (listening actually )again. Such a fantastic read! Everything hits: Humor, Love, Romance, Sassy, Brassy, Smart, Clever, Swoon-worthy, and Emotional. I fell in love with almost everyone in this book. So much that I would like a spin-off series for the guys (someone make that happen). Maddie and Logan proved that there can be connection even when there isn’t a “connection” (that will make more sense after you read it). I highly recommend this story. You don’t even have to read in order (though books 1 and 2 were really good too)!

Part of my Read It, Rate It, File It, DONE! Reviews


Will update the review with the audiobook thoughts after it releases and I get to listen to it ๐Ÿ™‚

    Ohhh – this is on my wishlist and you just bumped it way up! I haven’t read the other two so I’m glad you mentioned I don’t need to. Thanks!

    • It was so good. Plus the great thing is since this series is just related by theme not characters you don’t have to read the first two (though they are good too)

  2. Woah – 5 stars?!?! Then I have to read this book eventually, because I know you don’t hand those out all the time! Lucky for me, I just started Romancing the Duke over the weekend!! So, I’m excited to get more into it, since you liked this one so much!

  3. Wow, you really liked this one! It’s going on my ever growing list! I have the first book in this series but not read it yet, but I do like Tessa Dare. ๐Ÿ™‚
