A Scandalous Scot had its moments and those moments were fun and enjoyable. But it also had its tiresome scenes and these were too frequent to garner a four heart endorsement.

Synopsis

“Karen Ranney writes with power, passion, and dramatic flair.”
—Stephanie Laurens

“Ranney is a rich, rare find!”
—Judith Ivory

A Scandalous Scot is a scandalously entertaining tale of love and passion in the Scottish highlands from the queen of the Scottish historical romance novel, Karen Ranney. New York Times bestseller Ranney tells the tantalizing story of a handsome, haunted Scotsman returning in disgrace to his castle in Scotland after scandal ruined his reputation…only to court further damage to his name by falling in love with his maid, a feisty and outspoken beauty who hides some very shocking secrets of her own. Fans of Karen Hawkins and other bestselling historical romance writers who make the breathtaking highlands their preferred milieu will be swept away by this Scandalous Scot and his romantic trials, tribulations, and triumphs.

 

About Karen Ranney

KAREN RANNEY began writing when she was five. Her first published work was "The Maple Leaf," read over the school intercom when she was in the first grade. In addition to wanting to be a violinist (her parents had a special violin crafted for her when she was seven), she wanted to be a lawyer, a teacher, and, most of all, a writer. Though the violin was discarded early, she still admits to a fascination with the law, and she volunteers as a teacher whenever needed. Writing, however, has remained an overwhelming love of hers.

This was an entertaining lighthearted read that has a delightful contrast between the rules at the beginning of each chapter and the action that takes place.

There are some pretty passages here, as Karen Ranney always has a nice way with words. But the romance in this one is too much of a slow burn.
