I reviewed this book for Night Owl Reviews - 4.25 Stars:

Secrets to Seducing a Scot, the first book in the Highland Knaves series by Michelle Marcos, is an enthralling and adventurous Scottish romance. The characters are entertaining and the dialogue between Serena and Malcolm is razor sharp and occasionally contentious. It’s a good beginning for a series which promises to be a treat for fans of romantic tales filled with highlanders and lots of action.

Serena Marsh is a young woman whose column i

Other than the plot itself, I liked this book because, while the dialogue was Scottish, it was easy to understand. I don't want to have to learn another language just to be entertained, which is why this story was perfect! From the very first pages I wanted to keep reading and wonder what was going to happen next. As a Marcos fan from her very first book, she keeps it coming! Great!

I’ve obviously had this book for a while. :( For some reason I just didn’t pick it up until recently. While it’s not a story that wows you to no end, it is an intense, somewhat sweet romance between a very unlikely pair who pull you into their lives during a time of uprising in Scotland.

Serena Marsh is the toast of London with her daily column in the local newspaper. Society hangs on to her every word about who’s been at what ball and all the goings-on that happened. She’s privileged, sheltered,

I'm always up for a new author in my list of favorites, but this book just didn't do for me. I didn't feel that spark of excitement through me whenever I read a really good book. The idea of the story was good, but I wished it was more better developed. The characters weren't entirely memorable either. I think the only two characters I enjoyed reading about was the father and Gabby. I just didn't get that alpha hero vibe from Malcolm and Serena is well...Serena--not entirely my favorite heroine. ...more

Book started off pretty promising. Serena seemed like such a witty and intelligent heroine. Then she turned into a superbly annoying and whiny character. My total dislike of her made this book so unlikable. Serena's life is threatened and her father supplies a bodyguard. Instead of complying, she goes whacko and does everything to thwart him despite the looming threat of death. Uh ok there.
