When a Scot Ties the Knot

When a Scot Ties the Knot

When a Scot Ties the Knot by Tessa Dare

Summary: On the cusp of her first London season, Miss Madeline Gracechurch was shy, pretty, and talented with a drawing pencil, but hopelessly awkward with gentlemen. She was certain to be a dismal failure on the London marriage mart. So Maddie did what generations of shy, awkward young ladies have done: she invented a sweetheart.

A Scottish sweetheart. One who was handsome and honorable and devoted to her, but conveniently never around. Maddie poured her heart into writing the imaginary Captain MacKenzie letter after letter . . . and by pretending to be devastated when he was (not really) killed in battle, she managed to avoid the pressures of London society entirely.

Until years later, when this kilted Highland lover of her imaginings shows up in the flesh. The real Captain Logan MacKenzie arrives on her doorstep—handsome as anything, but not entirely honorable. He’s wounded, jaded, in possession of her letters . . . and ready to make good on every promise Maddie never expected to keep.

Angie’s Comments: This was funny and sweet romance. Maddie is a unique character, and Logan is an honorable man who has his own flaws. I also liked the lobsters. The main issue I had was the ending. I felt that Maddie gave up so much, when she and Logan could have compromised more.

Recommended for readers of light historical romance.
