When a Scot Ties the Knot by Tessa Dare
Date Read: July 2015
Genre: Historical, Romance
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 … 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 doorstep—handsome as anything, but not entirely honorable. He’s wounded, jaded, in possession of her letters… 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)!

Will update the review with the audiobook thoughts after it releases and I get to listen to it 🙂
During her non-reading time you can find her hanging with her rescue furr children named after book characters: Lizzie a beautiful cattle dog mix (Pound Pup), Cinder a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Pound Pup), and Minerva a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Foster Fail). Gathering with friends and family, attending conventions, watching movies/tv shows, rooting for the 49rs, and crocheting.
