Editorial Reviews

Review

“...a lushly intense romance between a man plagued by guilt and a woman subjugated by a blackguard’s condemnation. Throw in a mystery, a twisty, complex denouement, and radiant prose, and readers will be saddened to reach the final page. Jubilation; it’s the first in a series.” (Library Journal (starred review))

“5 RIBBONS! An absolutely delicious read…full of humor, interesting characters, clever banter, romance, love, mystery, danger and intrigue.” (Romance Junkies)

“A trapped-together premise, a secret circle of spies, sensationally intelligent writing, and a true, week-in-the-knees love story.” (Barnes & Noble "Heart to Heart" column, Recommended Read)

“5 QUILLS! A staggeringly intense love story... gripping, engaging, sublime... Ashe is a virtuoso.” (Romantic Crush Junkies)

“When A Scot Loves A Lady is chock full of all of the elements that make me love historical romance. Sweeping, intriguing, fast paced, sexy.” (Bookworm2Bookworm)

“Wonderfully written … a roller coaster ride with fantastic, romantic highs and tearful, heartbreaking lows on the way to a very satisfying happily ever after. The writing is superb and entertaining.” (The Season for Romance)

“Danger, intrigue, and passion to spare!” (Joyfully Reviewed)

From the Back Cover

London gossips are asking: What use has society of an exclusive gentleman's club if no gentlemen are ever seen to pass through its door?

After years as an agent of the secret Falcon Club, Lord Leam Blackwood knows it's time to return home to Scotland. One temptation threatens his plans—Kitty Savege, who warms his blood like a dram of fine whiskey. But a dangerous enemy stands in the way of desire, and to beat this foe Leam needs Kitty's help . . .

Kitty never wanted to spend her holidays in a wretched country village! With snow up to the windows, escape is nowhere in sight. A roguish Scottish lord, however, is. His rough brogue sends heat from Kitty's frigid toes to her chilled nose, but she's confident she can withstand that. What she cannot control is the reaction of her guarded heart when she discovers this beast is no beast at all . . .

This book was a struggle to read to the end. The dialogue between the characters was hard to follow at times. Also, as stated in the other reviews, the hero's Scottish brogue was almost impossible to interpret. At one point even the heroine states "I don't understand a word you just said"- I couldn't understand what he was saying with the words spelled out! The story dragged at points and I started skipping through just to get to the end.

Bought this because of the good reviews, but obviously I do not read the same books these reviewers read and have a different standard. I am still not finished with the book and an only skimming now as it is very boring. The characters are not well defined nor very likable, and trying to read the Scot accent is trying at best. This really is only a 2 1/2 star book in my opinion. Hopefully this book will pick up in the last third, and I really hope so. I hate spending time of books I wish I had not bought.

I had a very hard time reading this book. In fact, I couldn't even finish it. Leam is extremely hard to understand when speaking Scots. Half the time I didn't even know what he was saying. Have read many other "highlander" historical fictions and have never had this problem. I didn't find any of the characters that interesting and the conversations just didn't spark any interest in the book or the story for that matter. I just didn't feel the story was leading anywhere what-so-ever. Kitty was the only one with any potential. This one just fizzled out.

This book is part of a series and as such so overcrowded with characters and plots that it doesn't make any sense. The male lead is a Scot who fights for the glory of the British crown, which we are told is good and patriotic, but does it while speaking such a terrible burr that we pray he would change his nationality altogether. He's a twist on Scarlet Pimpernel and spouts nonsense and poetry in many languages for no other reason than to impress the heroine (and the readers too.) The heroine, of course, sees or rather senses through his disguise (oh, those pheromones!) and all ends well, but not too soon, because both characters have so much baggage that only HR can handle it. SPOILER: she was seduced and betrayed but chose to whore for the seducer to bring him down. The seducer, by the way, has her examined medically and decides she's barren, which she's happily not - oh, those virile Scots! The hero in the meantime has not only guilt for the death of his gay brother, but also a deceitful and greedy wife who only seems to be dead...END SPOILER The story is so overwritten and improbable even for HR, that instead of being an escapist pleasure becomes an annoying chore. Also, I fully understand that the authors are as bored as the readers with virtuous virgins and rakes, but the solution in this book really is not the answer.

This is the first book in Katharine Ashe's Falcon Club Series and it's a sizzler. Leam Blackwood, heir to a Scottish dukedom is weary after spending several years as an agent of the Falcon Club - a group of individuals who search and find "lost" people - mostly of the aristocracy. He has plans to leave the Falcon Club, return to Scotland and take up his place at his estate where his young son, Jamie, and sisters live.

To say he's been running would be an understatement. He definitely has a past that has contributed to wounds in his soul somehow related to his dead wife and dead brother. While on an assignment at a ball in London, he is, as usual, in his rougher clothing and speaking with a thick Scottish brogue when he makes eye contact with the lovely Kitty Sevege. It's apparent after the story gets going that he's heard of Kitty and her less than stellar reputation, yet manages with one look to cause her soul to be lifted up and change the course of her life.

Three years have passed since that night and Kitty has made decisions that have affected her life and her country for the better. And, yet, she's still not fulfilled. She hungers for a full life that might have included a loving husband and children. But... she knows the decisions she's made in her past have contributed to her ruination, so doubts her desires will ever be fulfilled. At the most she can hope to live vicariously through her brother, Alex's family, be an aunt, but perhaps never a mother.

One snowy night, she's traveling with her friend, Emily, to Emily's home when they become stranded at an inn - yes, snowbound. Guess who happens to be stranded at the same inn? You got it - Leam Blackwood and Wyn Yale of the Falcon Club.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I have mixed feelings about this book. On one hand, I enjoyed the writing style, the language and the dialogue (less the parts that read like gibberish); also, considering the back stories they've been saddled with, the main characters seemed decent and rather consistent. Now these back stories are, well, not so great: for one, the Hero seems to have shared his early life story with other Heroes in many other stories and it's remarkable how alike they carry themselves as a result of it. And then, the cliche just gets out of control and flips problem into solution in a rather abrupt and contrived conclusion. The other half, the Heroine, is sympathetic and strong with some incredible formative circumstances of her own. I don't want to give out any spoilers, but the spectacular results of her efforts to bring down the initial villain seem somehow disproportionate with her strategy and the opportunities it would have offered. Unless the villain was a most stupid creature with a secret wish to be caught and punished as he deserved, and there was no indication that was the case, it's quite difficult to believe that he would carry around damning evidence or that a young and sheltered woman would grasp the greater context of that evidence out of thin air. But almost anything goes in fiction, especially as a pretext to witness the romance between the sympathetic main characters, so I did my best to swallow my chuckles and forget I ever had grounds to disbelieve the premise, and in the end I enjoyed the story enough to want to spend some more time in this author's world. I only hope there won't be any more awfully transcribed Scottish (but definitely bring out the Scots!)
