I’ve only read one book by Ms. Quinn (Conquered by a Highlander) which I enjoyed quite a bit however; I just now had a chance to read more of her work. What great luck to end up with this book which is totally related to Conquered by a Highlander. In fact, the characters are directly related as in they are father and son. Edmund’s dad is Collin McGregor hence the series name The MacGregors: Highland Heirs. This spin off series starts out great and even better than Conquered by a Highlander, it earned a four and half star rating from me.

Amelia is to marry the Chancellor of Scotland, but the decision is not by choice. This marriage is to help her dad’s financial status but obviously, her heart is not in it in the least. Meanwhile, Edmund, a true Scottish patriot has plans to kidnap her in hopes to stop the treaty between Scotland and England. Edmund and his cousins will be successful with their plans but sticking to it will be harder than they thought.

The Seduction of Miss Amelia Bell is a wonderfully written Scottish romance. It was filled with light hearted humor and a very sweet romance. Amelia had me laugh out loud with her clumsiness. She truly believed it was a curse that she kept getting into accidents. Edmund, on the other hand, just adored her and found it adorable. During captivity aka hanging out with Edmund and his cousins, Amelia earned their love and respect….earning a permanent spot in their family. They had such a sweet courtship and I have to say it was quite sexy.

Sub stories were quite entertaining, as well. Lucan and Sarah’s relationship started out odd, but it’s one story I really want to read more about. Sarah is such a delight.

Another great romance from Paula Quinn and a great start to the new series, The MacGregors: Highland Heirs.

Highland and highlanders are one of my great weaknesses, and I’m ready for MacGregors. Bring them on Paula!

We start with Edmund MacGregor, a man of principle and strong beliefs in the cause for his beloved Scotland. He will risk his own life before he gives up on them, and to keep his country out of English hands, he comes up with a plan to thwart the men who would be signing a treaty that would see Scotland come under English rule.

Amelia is the niece of the Duke of Queensberry, and the one that our hero plans to abduct for ransom, but what he doesn’t count on is how beautiful, sweet and innocent she is. It was not in his plans for him to fall to her many charms and now he needs to figure out a way to honor his principles and keep Amelia.

Our heroine has the same problem. She is betrothed to the Lord Chancellor of Scotland but soon after she meets our hero, she realizes that she loves him, and she must decide which to honor, her father’s wishes or her love for Edmund.

There is a lot of action and intrigue, passion and intensity in this story that it made for a very enjoyable and fun read. The heroine was cute, charming and innocent while the hero was strong, conflicted and protective.

As usual Ms. Quinn gives us an interesting and fast-moving plot intermingled with historical events, believable three-dimensional characters and villains we can’t wait to get their well deserved demise. I swear the end of this story came way too soon for me. I wanted this story to just keep going and going. It made me laugh and chuckle so much I never realized I hit the end! Highly recommending it to all, but especially to those that love a man in a kilt.

Melanie for b2b.

This had to be the steamiest Paula Quinn book I have ever read - and I've read them all! I am not complaining - the hotter the better in my opinion But this was not what I am used to from this author. Either that or it's been way too long since I last read one of her books

Edmund was great, I remember him as a boy in his parents book (Conquered by a Highlander) and I loved him in that book. In a way seeing him grown up and falling in love was hard for me. It was almost like reading about one of my friends kids love life - awkward!! I have read many family saga series and never felt this way before about a character - so kudos to Ms Quinn for writing a character that stayed with me for so long!

Anyway! Edmund was wonderful He is brave, loyal and well, just about perfect! Amelia...not so much, I did like her and admired her loyalty to her father and to Sarah. But let's get real - she was way too wishy washy and I didn't like the way she acted once her uncle and father showed up. Her actions made me lose what little respect I had for her. She didn't deserve Edmund. But to be fair, she thought her actions were justified because she loved him so much - she thought she was saving him (not how I saw it - but I realize that was the way the author intended it to seem).

There is a nice little side romance with Lucen and Sarah. And the hint of a brewing romance between Darach and Janet Buchanan (that is a story I want to read!)

As always Ms Quinn's writing is wonderful. She paints a picture with words, her story flows and her characters touch you.
