"Someone's going to call your bluff someday, Venetia -- you'd better hope it's not a handsome man." -- Mrs. Charlotte Harris, headmistress

Lady Venetia Campbell's visit to her childhood home in Scotland takes a dramatic turn when she's kidnapped at pistol point by her father's sworn enemy. Sir Lachlan Ross is widely feared in his guise as The Scottish Scourge, but Venetia remembers her former neighbor as a handsome youth whose attentions she craved. Now a wickedly sexy man, Lachlan's appeal is even more intoxicating...and much more dangerous. Though Lachlan tries to treat her as his foe, his scorching kisses tell another story. And despite his plan to use her as a weapon against her father, Venetia is determined that Lachlan's lust for revenge will be trumped by an even more powerful desire....

The kilts did it for me.

Thoughts on Beware a Scot’s Revenge

I’ve read a few Sabrina Jeffries books before, and while I liked them and everyone said she was awesome, I got it with this one.

Not sure what it was about this one that did it. The kilts, probably. And imagining what lies beneath.

What? Like YOU’VE never done it?

I should get bonus points, though, for being able to guess the deep dark secret. I didn’t necessarily guess the extent of it, but I totally figured it out before one of characters spilled the sordid tale. I’m just awesome that way.

You know, Venetia was awesome once she embraced who she was (and all the wickedness Lachlan let loose). She was the fun one to follow, because despite all the circumstances thrown at her (Lachlan was rather an ass), she perseveres. She thrives. She finds WICKEDNESS.

Lachlan… well, he was stubborn. And slightly stupid for going about doing what he did toward the end. But it provided a hugely epic scene {insert more vague descriptions here} that I thoroughly enjoyed, even as I wanted to bash Lachlan over the head.

If you’re bothered by the kidnapping part, don’t worry, Venetia loved him long before then. I say that only with a tiny trace of sarcasm. This might be one you have to suspend belief on a bit. But it worked for me, and really, that’s all I care about.

(Okay, I care about you, too.)

    There is something about Sabrina Jeffries’s books that just work for me. They are a bit over-the-top and sometimes don’t make sense, but I always have a good time with them. This series is one of my favorites with book 4 (Let Sleeping Rogues Lie) being my favorite.

  2. oh yay!!! So glad that you enjoyed this one so much. I loved this one….and lets be honest we all wonder whats under those kilts, some of us are just more honest than others right?? hehe I really enjoyed this book and the whole series is so fun. But I do love she develops this story.
