A Hundred Lies is a historical romance with a supernatural twist. Rosalie has made a living from gathering information and reading body language to portray herself as a fortune-teller. Unfortunately for her, a Lady with no scruples has decided she knows too much and wants to silence her. This leads to Rosie and her family travelling to Scotland to try to escape.

The amount of detail and research in this book is amazing, leading to a rich comprehensive story. The characters are all well-described,

Rosalie Threston's fortune-telling lies have caught up with her, and she flees to Scotland to escape a ruthless English noblewoman--only to encounter a laird's son who happens to be a real Seer. A bloody past and inevitable future plague Domhnall Montgomerie. He avoids physical contact with others to ease the painful visions.

This is a medieval Scottish romance with a paranormal fantasy twist. I have not read the first two books in the series, but did not have any trouble keeping up with either

This book is an interesting, intriguing, exciting, adventurous, historical romance read with a dash of fantasy and paranormal elements!!!

I have had the fortunate opportunity of hosting Jean several times over the many years on my blog. However, for some reason this was the first time that I had the pleasure of reading and reviewing one of her books. When I saw the chance to read her latest book, “A Hundred Lies,” I jumped right on the first open tour date lol!!!

So, even though “A Hundred Lies,”

A Hundred Lies is the third book in the A Hundred Kisses series by Jean M. Grant. I haven't read the previous books in the series but read this book as if it was a standalone one. I didn't feel as if I had missed anything from not reading the others.

Rosalie Threston makes ends meet by telling fortunes and selling jewellery that she makes from pretty stones she finds, and with beads etc. She isn't a real fortune teller but manages to convince people that she is. Unfortunately, one fortune-telling

First off, I want to bring the reader 's attention to the phenomenal glossary, map and character lineages that the author has on her web page. I'm not sure I can post links here, so I will simply say to Google jeanmgrant and go to her Extras page on her website. It will help you navigate this incredible world she's created and the history she's pulled from. With that said, this third book in her series is a wild ride through Scotland, where unrest and war has left the country starting new.

In A Hundred Lies, Jean M. Grant has created a likable hero in Rosalie, the fake fortune teller. She has placed her in a fascinating time and place, and done the research to make the setting come alive. Finally, she's given her a thorny dilemma to vex her, and a threatening nemesis to chase her, so we all can hold our breath, hoping the best for her as we turn the pages. I enjoyed reading Rosalie's adventures.

I wish I'd found the tortured nobleman who loves her to be as compelling, but I never q

This is a wonderful story. It has all of the beauty, excitement and culture from 1322 Scotland and England. There are sword fights, celebrations, clans and love. It features Deirdre MacCoinneach and Alasdair Montgomerie’ oldest child Domhnall Montgomerie and a fortune-teller named Rosalie Threston. Domhnall has the gift of visions but has denied them for nearly 10 years by not touching anyone. He meets Rosalie, aka Rose, in her shop in Edinburgh and she “reads” him without touching him and makes ...more

A Hundred Lies, the third in the Hundred series is historical fiction set in 14th century Scotland. Along with the history there is a dose of paranormal as some characters are possessed of special powers. As with the other two books in this series, A Hundred Kisses and A Hundred Breaths, Jean M. Grant weaves a magical tale of secrets, romance, and intrigue set in a medieval society.

The imagery is lovely, easily pulling the reader into the story. Fortune-teller Rosalie Threston, the heroine in A

An interesting story. The last in the series and even though it didn't spoil it that I hadn't read any of the two previous ones I think I will look out for them. The connection between the other books seems to be the hero's family line. Out heroine, Rosalie is a fortune teller, she relies on palmistry and mainly cold reading her clients. Domhnall is the real deal, a highland seer, who avoids touch and has been trying to surpress his gift. Rosalie relies on her uncle and aunt for informati

This book contained a little of several genres. Having been written by Jean M. Grant I was not surprised. The reason for this is because I always say I am not really a romance reader and yet her books have so much in their storyline that I can’t put them down. A Hundred Lies was no different.

I have read another of the author’s books but not in this series. Though I knew there were two previous books in this series, I can’t say there was anything that left me hanging. This is a great stand-alone

The clan this trilogy follows finally reach their destiny. It's basically Domhall and Rosalie's story, though. Many of the family members from the previous books are featured as well and I was so happy to see them again. Will their pasts bring them harm or will their be a path for future generations?
Scotland is, as always, a character of its own in this trilogy. It's wildly beautiful, full of intrigue, mystery and magical superstitions. I fell in love with this country, and the long ago times fe

This was my favorite of the 3 intertwined books. Rosalie is scratching out a living selling trinkets and telling "fortunes". Although she has no physic abilities, she is a keen observer of people and reads them pretty well. Domhnall has real physic abilities, passed down by his ancestors in the previous 2 books. Because as a child these visions were so frightening and dreadful, his has avoided human touch for the last ten years. Until he runs into Rosalie and discovers her touch brings him peace ...more

Medieval romance mixed with a touch of paranormal

A seer unwilling to embrace his gift, a fortune teller unable to embrace the truth and a hundred lies surrounding them, some hers, some his, some others, make this a wonderful read. Jean Grant has blended medieval romance with a touch of paranormal to create this tale of love, acceptance and fate. Believable characters and an engaging mystery make this a great read. This is the 3rd book in Grant’s “Hundred” series following generations of gifted

With this, the final book in a wonderful trilogy, Jean Grant delighted me with a lovely story, characters that I cared about and rooted for, and as always, well-researched descriptions of and references to medieval Scotland life. I love a touch of magic and this author doesn’t disappoint! Each of these books can be read as stand-alones, but I enjoyed reading them in the order in which they were intended. All of these stories highlight special magical abilities of certain characters. “Lies” offer ...more

4-4.5 Stars!! I REALLY enjoyed this book. This is the first time I’ve had the pleasure of reading anything by Jean M.Grant. This book is the 3rd in the series but can be read as a standalone. I pretty much guessed who the ‘bad guy’ was really early on. However, I still loved this book & was even surprised a few times. Interesting story. I have a few questions still about everyone in the book, even after the epilogue. Hopefully the author continues with the rest of the family members & distant re ...more

Beautiful cover. Beautiful story. Beautiful characters. I loved everything about this book. The plot was intriguing, filled with mystery, romance, and danger. The characters had great chemistry. I loved how slow they took their relationship in the beginning. As a reader, I got to experience the flutters of the first meeting, of developing feelings, and more as the romance progressed in the story.

The author does an amazing job at stradling genres. Her women’s fiction book was incredible, and I’m

It took me a while to get back into this series as it has been awoke since reading the first two books. Once I sorted out the characters in my mind, I settled in and really started to enjoy this book. Roselie was an interesting character, her life one of lies. Everything about her a lie to the end. She was just did others bidding to survive. Domhnall was lost in his past, trying to search for his future, thinking rose was the same as him, he was drawn into life and needed to be one with her.

Roance with intrigue. A great historical romance set in Scotland with intrigue skillfully weaved throught it. Third in a wonderful series but stand well on it own. Parts of it will leave you on the edge of your seat and you can't stop reading until you find out what happens next. There is some supernatual aspects to it that associates back to the other books. The historical references and descriptions of the area add so much to the story. Terrific ending to the series and if you haven't read the ...more

This is definitely the best book of the series. This character-driven story drew me in from the first chapter and I pretty much didn't put it down until I finished it. It is by far the best book of the series. The characters seem real, the action and fight scenes fit the plot and there is a surprising plot twist. While I enjoyed getting to know this newest generation of characters, there's enough information that the story can also stand alone (it's been 2 years since I read the previous books i ...more

Lies, visions, fear, and danger brought Rosalie and Domhnall together. I enjoyed Rosalie as she danced around the truth while "reading" palms using in observation skills. She was loyal to family though her life was not what she wanted. Domhnall had his visions and fears to deal with, but received comfort from Rosalie. They made an interesting couple despite their differences and really complemented each other.

The story fascinated me with twists and mystery of a time in Scotland a long time ago. Rosalie is a peasant living with relatives doing odd jobs, and barely making it. She is a psychic in trade, but a fake in life. Being poor is working against her, then she meets Domhnall who has the gift of visions. They intertwine and he feels at peace when he meets her. She is on the run from an angry customer and they get together. I will not tell the story, but they both tell lies and in the end they must ...more

This is the third book I've read from Ms. Grant and I'm still amazed at the historical details she weaves into her stories! I feel like I'm actually in fourteenth-century Scotland, going through the trials and tribulations with the characters. I really enjoyed the cast of this book, maybe even more than the other two in the series. Rosalie and Domnhall are flawed characters, making them realistic and likable. Another recommendation for any fan of Outlander. ...more

Oh wow, this author keeps me coming back for more. All the characters are amazing and the story has everything you look for in a book; danger, romance, suspense and love. I read this work straight through the night and did not sleep a wink. It left me with such a high, I just went to work after. Absolutely fantastic read and highly recommended.
