4.5 stars

I really enjoyed this book, it had the perfect blend of humor, intrigue, secrets, sexual tension and action.

Amelia was a really great character, she has not had an easy life and has done what she had to do to survive. She leaves America and goes to England to find the Marquess of Dansbury, because she wants to inform him that she is his long lost sister and well, she really doesn't have any other choice, she had

Since reading (and loving!) What the Duke Wants and What the Marquess Sees, I have been eagerly anticipating What the Scot Hears and it did not disappoint! In WTSH, Amy Quinton picks up the thread of the covert resistance to the Society for the Purification of England and weaves it into a tapestry larger and much more complicated than it first appeared.

Stonebridge, Dansbury, Grace, and Beatryce are all back (just because you're married doesn't mean you can't save the country, FYI), Kelly may or

Oooooh I'm so in love.
This series is a certainty. I've been waiting A LOT for a new the point I had started despairing. And here we are, What the Scor Hears is great, I loved it. And I want to read the next one, now. And I also would love to read Alain's story (which let's be honest, we all want). And please don't make me wait too long Amy. Please.

So good.

ps. Thanks for using the term "knackered".

Oh my, I loved this story, but then it is Amy Quinton! Great storyline and characters. I love a rugged, moody Scotsman. The sexy scenes were hot and steamy. Perfect story. Next up #4.

This third installment of The Agents of Change is the best one yet! I'm loving how the storyline stays intertwined with all the characters..... ready for Rake to be out NOW!
InD'tale Magazine

Author Amy Quinton's prose is wonderfully descriptive, seemingly understanding every nuance of every scene, while the cat and mouse game between Alaistair and Amelia is a delightful chase that grabs the reader's attention.

Laird Alistair McLeod is a morose Scot with reasons to be laconic, withdrawn, and distrustful. His reasons will break your heart. Amelia Chase is an outgoing, socially adept grifter who never met a person she couldn't charm. He knows she isn't what she seems and doesn't believe much she says. She knows he isn't as heartless as he likes to appear.

Sparks fly from the moment they meet and they don't stop. These two challenge, out maneuver, and chase with one another from one end of England to the o

This is the third of a series and I would not advise reading it out of order. While I liked the story I still felt that I was missing info in regards to the previous books and their characters. I found the banter and sexual tension that zinged between Alaistair and Amelia highly entertaining. It is a perfect case of opposites attract but when they finally got together it was a bit anticlimactic. If you are a stickler for period detail and the ballrooms of the times you will not find it here sinc ...more
I liked it, there were some questions that weren't answered for me (like wtf did her luggage go? What happened to her horse? and What about his brother?) but they didn't really detract from the story itself.
I will post more of a review when I have one.

Amy Quinton has produced another fun romp in her Agents of Change series. MacLeod, the Scot of the title is superb: gloomy, pessimistic, suspicious, and totally befuddled by the brash American woman who keeps stumbling across his work as a spy for the British Crown.
For all her cheerful outgoing personality, Amelia hides secrets of her own, not least her identity and her background.
