    Seduced by a Rogue

    As a girl with Scottish roots, I was instantly drawn to this historical romance by Amanda Scott. I love the way the Scottish language sounds and this book is full of "lasses" and "dinna kens". Seduced by a Rogue takes place in Scotland during the late 1300s during the time when Clan Maxwell was trying to gain control over southwest Scotland.

    Mairi and Rob are caught on two different sides of the clan wars and sparks ignite as they fight the attraction between them. Rob kidnaps Mairi to try to convince her father to accept Maxwell's demand that he pay taxes to the Scottish King. The book is based on actual hisorical events although I doubt it's completely historically accurate. It includes enough history to keep me interested and enough romance to to keep me turning the pages for more.

    This isn't a hot and heavy romance book. You won't find a lot of heaving bosom's in Seduced by a Rogue. The romance is more subtle but no less important. The book is rich in history and that in itself drew me into the story . The attraction between Mairi and Rob was icing on the cake.

    If you're a fan of Scottish history or historical romances, you'll love the latest book by Amanda Scott, Seduced by a Rogue.

    Political intrigue, family rivalry, an heiress in distress & romance!

    Another fun highlander romance, Seduced by a Rogue gives us family intrigue, a strong and honorable heroine, a misguided and handsome romantic lead. As Rob Maxwell tries to balance his clan obligations with his sense of honor, the story takes an interesting turn.

    Seduced by a Rogue is a fun, quick read. Amanda Scott works her romance magic yet again.

    Love, history and warfare make this a good mix!

    Robert Maxwell the Laird of Trailinghail had the purest of intentions of preventing a war not starting one by kidnapping the daughter of their family enemy. He thought if he kidnapped the beautiful 19-year old Mairi Dunwythie her father would give up his resistance to letting Rob's brother, Alexander the Sheriff of Dumfries tax the Annandale holdings and all would live peacefully. It was a great idea in theory but once Rob had her back at his keep the feelings that he had for her were not one of capture toward a hostage but more primal and ran very deep to his core. Could he continue this game and see who won or would he let her go?

    Mairi had been raised to take over her father's property and one day will be a landowner in her own right. Having no sons to take his place Mairi's father may have been late in teaching her but he was giving her the education any heir would receive. She followed his directive but still had her own mind and when she wanders from the keep she learns too fast how venerable she is when in a blink of an eye she becomes Rob's prisoner. But he does not treat her as such and the emotion that is flowing between them is not anger or resentment at the situation but passion and lust - both things Mairi never anticipated having.

    But a change in plans occurs when Alex discovers what Rob has done forcing Robert to return Mairi to her father. The sequence of events that follow will change every aspect of their lives and relationship forever. So much has happened in the short time Mairi was away with her sister running off with a wild and impetuous boy not of her social standing, her step mother swearing she is carrying the true heir and her father suddenly out of the picture. Robert's brother decides the opportunity has presented itself and he plans to seize the property and by doing so forces Robert to choose which side he will stand with. Is blood stronger than love or will his loyalties to his family win out and have him lose the one love of his life - Mairi.

    Decisions are made, destinies created and history written all in a well laid story. This book is a great mix of history, a tender love story, the sadness of battle and the turmoil of being female in a male dominated time and place. The details are exacting but do not take away from the read and the pleasure of watching Rob and Mairi work through who they are to one another as well as how they can find their place in their individual family structure.

    Not as good as the other Amanda Scott books

    I love Amanda Scott books and have read most of them, but this book was not as good as the others. It didn't have the usual adventure. Once Mairi is abducted, the majority of the book is about her and Rob inside her abductors chamber.

    Another great Scottish medieval romance by Amanda Scott

    In 1375, his beloved older brother Alex, the Sheriff of Dumfries, sends Rob Maxwell to collect money that clan Maxwell believes clan Dunwythie owes them. Lord Dunwythie rejects the claim stating he pays his fees and taxes to the king. He returns home empty pocketed to the admonition of his sibling.

    Rob meets the heir to the Dunwythie estate, Lady Mairie. Though attracted to her, he places his clan above his libido and concocts a plan to use her as a pawn to obtain the money due his kin. He kidnaps her expecting her father to pay ransom for his beloved daughter. Alex offers to rescue Mairie from the unknown "stranger" for a fee. He knows that his brother is the kidnapper but his adversary does not know the identity of the abductor. Outraged by the mercenary demand, Dunwythie calls in a favor from Clan Douglas. With war brewing between the clans, Rob and Mairie fall in love, but both place their clan above their personal needs.

    Seduced by a Rogue is another great Scottish medieval romance (see Tamed by a Laird) as the lead couple finds love amidst their battling clans. Filled with fourteenth century history, the story line is fast-paced from the moment Mairie and Rob meet and never slows down as readers will wonder whether this pair will share the fate of Romeo and Juliet.
