Jessica's Totally Over The Top Book Obsession
This one is my favorite of the series so far. I loved the highland scott stealing his bride. I loved Venetia and Lachlan. They had great chemistry and I loved their relationship build up. I also loved the secondary characters. The plot was great and the ending was very sweet! Loved it!

Sir Lachlan Ross, heir to a Baronetcy in Ross Shire Scotland, and aka the Scottish Scourge, has made it his life's goal to take back what had been stolen from his father and their people. Even more than that, he had a single-mindedness to attain revenge against the man responsible for all the loss and humiliation he had suffered. He was determined to complete this revenge even if it meant becoming a thief and scoundrel himself. So, since the source of all his vexation had chosen to remain absen ...more

My, my, my. Sexy highlanders in kilts! “Beware a Scot’s Revenge” is another winner in Sabrina Jeffries ‘School for Heiresses’ series. Ms Jeffries provides another enticing glimpse into the late Regency period in Scotland--with a braw and rowdy highland laird, a Scottish ‘princess’ who yearns to return to her beloved homeland, and a 16-year-old tragedy that almost derails true love!

Venetia Campbell is thrilled to be back in Scotland. It took all her wiles to convince

Sweet and lovable story with humorous dialogs and characters you can feel :)
Krista (I remember you, Min) (Critical)
This is definitely the best Sabrina Jeffries book I've ever read.
Those who are familiar with her know her books are on the light, fluffy side, so you have to keep that in mind before you pick this up.

I LOVE when villians in previous books become the hero, so of course I was excited that this one was to be about the Scottish Scourge, who had previously tried to rob Amelia and Lucas, the main couple from the first book.

Okay, so...

Lachlan. I LOVE him, even more than I expected to. It w

I didn't hate this book but I didn't love it. I liked it. The plot seemed more interesting than it ended up being.

The letters at the beginning of each chapter were not needed. I know it furthers a story within this series or whatever, but I don't think we needed it.

Cute Scottish historical romance with likable leads. Not the usual time period for Scottish historicals, it was nice to see Scotland a few generations after Culloden. The romance was sweet, I like how the hero never treated the heroine badly even when he was very angry with her father. Check this out if you like Scottish historical romance!

Solid 5 star book!!
What is it about this book that deserves a 5 star rating from me? Let me tell you...

First of all you have the hero Sir Lachlan Ross, a Scottish Laird who is also secretly the Scottish Scourge, a thief and blackguard! He is out to get justice for the wrong that was done to his clan and get the money returned that is owed his family. The person who owes him this- Quentin Campbell, the Earl of Duncannon, also known as the former friend and neighbor of Lachlan's father. Duncannon

Another happy novel. I want to cut short. Sooo Lachnan aka Scourge was not enough Scot for my taste, I could easily think him as an a little bit lawless English if it's not for the " lass, laddie , ya ken?". He is a total gentleman, in this novel Venetia our heroin is super sexy and kind of a badass, so I like her more. Through the novel mrs. Harris and cousin Micheal argue a lot. And I just think that all these books are lessons for Charlotte coz it seems like that. In every book Charlotte lear ...more

Shelves: romance
I was rather hoping for a dark and dangerous "enemies brought together by passion" kind of story (why do I like that sort of thing? Lord knows), but any tension or suspense quickly fizzles out in this pleasant but nonsensical book. Not that the characters aren't fun--Lady Venetia is a good, intelligent sort who takes control of her supposed kidnapping pretty early on. The trouble is, any actual dangers or consequences are airily waved away as the plot wraps itself up in a bow. Still, if you're l ...more

I'm changing my previous review from 4 stars to 5! And this is my new favorite of the series! First, let me start by saying, yes, these are light-hearted historical romances that Ms. Jeffries writes, but it doesn't make them any less worthy or enjoyable. In fact, I'd argue with anyone who says writing these are easier than the darker more angsty stuff. Just because they are easy to read and maybe not as serious as others would like doesn't mean it's not well done. The story still has to flow and ...more

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.

This was a wonderful book. I loved the banter between Venetia and Lachlan. I loved the way the story had lots of surprises and twist and turns. It was a straight forward revenge story at first but didn't stay that way for long. When they arrive at his estate it get's even better. Lachlan's mother get's in the middle of his plans and takes Venetia under her wing and protects her. The whole clan falls in love with her and she falls in love with all of them. She shows Lachlan just how much ...more

Love a sexy highlander and Lachlan was that and more. He made me laugh many times - not the least when he tricked Venetia into marrying him and then didn't know how to come clean about it. It was too funny. Venetia was a great, strong heroine too. The audio was really good too. I wasn't so enamoured of the first two in the series but now I think I'm keen to read more from Sabrina Jeffries.

I do enjoy a good kidnapping love story. Nothing like Stockholm Syndrome as the basis of true love. Heehee. Plus, I do love a Scottish brogue!

I must say, this series is getting more enjoyable because I've read the later ones and it is fun to see the setups and appreciate the inside jokes all the more.

The author refered to the heroin's sex as her honey pot. At that point each time the male character was mentioned, I had that vision of Winny the Pooh with his furry legs and butt sticking out of a pot of honey. Creepy. Couldn't finish the book....

She understands why her father moved them to London after the death of their mother, but she has wanted to go back to her home for a long time. Unfortunately, due to the Scottish Scourge, her father will not let her actually go back to their estate but only go to Edinburgh. The Scourge plagued her father by robbing their friends, so he won't risk her safety, even though the Scourge is reportedly dead. While at a maske ...more
