3 1/2 Stars ~ With her father and husband both dead now two years, Isobel Dalceann was chieftan of her clan. The Ceann Gronna Castle was the last to holdout to King David, all because her father had refused his loyalty to the Scottish king. To protect her clan from the King's anger, she had no choice but to fight, for to surrender now would surely mean death for them all. The day she dragged the strangers from the ocean, she also faced the anger of her own clan. They would have preferred to kill ...more

Ogni libro va inquadrato nel genere letterario al quale appartiene, e per essere un Harlequin Il segno del diavolo è sicuramente molto carino. Al di là delle imbarazzanti scene di sesso colme di ellissi e perifrasi di ogni genere (che però mantengono una certa attrattiva, quantomeno nella quantità di LOL che ti dà leggere espressioni come "il caldo turgore" e "il bianco latte della sua resa" XDDD), la storia si rifiuta di restare intrappolata nei classici canoni del softcore per signore, e finis ...more

Até agora, todos os livros que li da autora foram bons. As historias tem sempre um fundo histórico real por trás dos acontecimentos, o que me agrada muito.

Isobel ajuda a salvar três náufragos, e leva Marc, um dos náufragos, como prisioneiro, para seu castelo, para poder salvar sua vida. O problema é que ela não sabia que estava dando guarida para seu pior inimigo.

O pai de Isobel se revoltou contra a coroa e se recusou a entregar suas terras, e com sua morte a colocou em uma posição difícil, de t

Good book. I really liked Isobel and her independence and strength. She was determined to protect her people, in spite of the odds against them. When she rescued Marc from drowning she knew it would be a mistake to take him to her keep, but she did it anyway. There was something about him that drew her to him. She decides to treat his wounds then send him on his way, as she knows better than to trust any strangers. Two months later he is back, leading a force that is to capture the keep for the ...more

I will admit that it took me several chapters to get into the characters of Marc and Isobel, but I am glad that I stayed with it. James tells a tale that tugs at the heartstrings and is the perfect story of the time.

Grade: B-

He kissed like a warrior would, taking what he needed without discourse to the properness of society, her timid answer pushed away into sheer and blazing want.


Sophia James, along with Julia Justiss and Elizabeth Rolls, was one of my “gateway” Harlequin Historical authors – I glommed her entire backlist when I first got my Kindle.

James is one of those authors that I enjoy, but not enough to rave about, and Lady With the Devil’s Scar fits right in that middle territory – I liked it, but

I actually liked this book. I think that there was some obvious lacking in the inexperience of mystery and intrigue story telling, but it still held my attention. Not to mention it was a nice break from all the Regency Novel's I had been reading. The plot was fast moving, thus ending up a quick read. Nothing bothered me too much about the main characters, which is nice, because it is so easily done in romance novels. That being said, I don't have anything overly nice to say about it or anything ...more

I see I'm the only one that dislike this book. Well, whatever. =__=

A very well written book from Sophia James. I enjoyed this time period - 1375 Scotland - since it is somewhat unknown to me. There was good tension and conflict plus the characters were interesting. Good book.

el sumary me intereso mucho, no es que fue mala, pero fue normal
todo se soluciono muy rápido y es como que la amenaza del rey que después resultó ser un pan de dios y todo milagrosamente se soluciona...
Marcella
it started out sort of odd but got better as you got into the story...still sort of add way to write it but not a bad read
Linda
Quite enjoyed it though for some reason it took me a while to get into. I had to restart it from the beginning.
Sisilia
Quite a plot-twister... and of course a happy ending. Nonetheless, it's a satisfying read alltogether.
Angie
I enjoyed this romance, though I was a little let down by the abrupt ending.

Georgette Heyer novels formed Sophia James's reading tastes as a teenager lying in the sun on her grandmother's porch overlooking a wild west-coast beach.

Her writing life, however, started in Bilbao, Spain. After having three wisdom teeth extracted she was given a pile of Mills and Boons--filled with strong painkillers she imagined that she could pen one, too.

Many drafts later she thinks she has t
