Seduced By A Rogue Blog Tour & Review

Be Seduced By A Rogue...
And Enter the World of 14th Century Scotland and Amanda Scott!

A fair-haired beauty at 19, Lady Mairi is heiress apparent to her father Lord Dunwythie's rich barony. He has carefully taught her how to manage their estates, but a feud between his clan and the Maxwell clan is brewing as the two families edge toward a clan war - their dispute over money owed. Mairi's father believes he owes nothing, and of course Mairi sides with him.

When the impulsive and blue-eyed Rob Maxwell chances to meet Mairi in a barley field, they feel instant attraction, despite their families' antagonisms. Knowing he must put his clan first, Rob enacts a plan to force Dunwythie to pay his debt: Rob kidnaps Mairi, making the abduction appear the work of a stranger; then he and his sheriff-brother offer to help Dunwythis rescue his daughter IF, and only if, he will pay them the monies due. Yet after Rob captures Mairi's body, she captures his heart. When Dunwythie summons the aid of the most powerful clan in all Scotland (the Douglases), clan-tensions rise to a fever pitch. Love takes its own feverish course, as Mairi and Rob join forces to prevent a clash between hot-headed clans, and to protect their budding love.

What did I think?... Seduced by a Rogue is enchanting! The characters were rich and likeable. The setting in Scotland was wonderful with authentic touches of language and scenery. You can tell that Amanda knows her history, especially when writing of the intricacies of the clans. At the beginning of the story Amanda writes in her Author's Note explaining some of the language and some of the references that the reader may not be familiar with, but these touches are what allows us to travel back in time to experience the world of Lady Mairi Dunwythie in the 14th century. The romance between Lady Mairi and the clan warrior Robert Maxwell starts at a slow boil and finally sizzles! Plus Amanda has a wonderful sense of humor- I found myself smiling out loud at some of the wonderful situations between Mairi & Rob. I love historical romances and Seduced By A Rogue is a terrific read. Amanda is a wonderful storyteller!
