Lonesome Lily Turned Scandalous Siren
Miss Lillian Hargrove has lived much of her life alone in a gilded cage, longing for love and companionship. When an artist offers her pretty promises and begs her to pose for a scandalous portrait, Lily doesn't hesitate...until the lying libertine leaves her in disgrace. With the painting now public, Lily has no choice but to turn to the one man who might save her from ruin.
Highland Devil turned Halfhearted Duke
The Duke of Warnick loathes all things English, none more so than the aristocracy. It does not matter that the imposing Scotsman has inherited one of the most venerable dukedoms in Britain—he wants nothing to do with it, especially when he discovers that the unwanted title comes with a troublesome ward, one who is far too old and far too beautiful to be his problem.
Tartan Comes to Town
Warnick arrives in London with a single goal: get the chit married and see her become someone else's problem, then return to a normal, quiet life in Scotland. It's the perfect plan, until Lily declares she'll only marry for love...and the Scot finds that there is one thing in England he likes far too much...
SUPER stoked that I was able to review A Scot in the Dark. Sarah MacLean is one of my favorite historical authors (She is an automatic buy for me.) and I have been chomping at the bit to read this one-it was better than I imagined!
I immediately went in quite intrigued by Alec, the Duke of Warnick, from the first book in this series, The Rogue Not Taken. He was mysterious and seemed to not care about whatever it was London thought of him. I love a man that is quiet and confident. Fast forward to this book. I loved the depth of emotion and backstory for Alec. If I wasn’t already half in love with him, I would have been pushed over the edge shortly after starting this story. He ranks up there as one of my favorites of her heroes.
Lillian was such a wonderful character. Ms. MacLean has a knack for creating strong, leading females. I felt for the predicament that Lilly found herself in. It’s crazy the nonsense women had to go through and the double standards they had to face. She found the strength to face it all. I loved her spunk and tenacity. She was wonderful!
I can’t say enough about how all sorts of awesome this book was. Ms. MacLean knows how to pen a fantastic novel!
