Margaret Moore actually began her writing career at the age of eight, when she and a friend would make up stories together. She also loved to read and many years later graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature. After reading a romance by Kathleen Woodiwiss, Margaret took a course in popular fiction writing and through that, found Romance Writers of America. Three years later, in 1991, she sold her first historical romance. And the rest, as they say, is history!

Reviewed for book blog Wickedly Bookish. While perusing the aisles of my favorite local used book store, I came across this one and picked it up because of the pretty cover, but bought it because the words "highland" and "rogue" appeared on it. Lately I've found I can't resist anything promising me a roguish alpha male with a Scottish accent and Highland Rogue, London Miss delivers a fairly decent portrayal. The basic concept of this novel is finding out what happens when you take an opinionated, virtuously headstrong women, and a freewheeling handsome rogue and place them in a situation where they must pretend they are married. As you can imagine, it's a tough situation as it is, but then place them in 1800s England and Scotland and it becomes scandalously interesting. The plot behind the romance is a bit weak and seems to be forced in order to set up steamy situations for our hero and heroine. Besides this flaw, it really is just a quick read with fun characters and decent love scenes built up with sexual tension fueled by what is or isn't proper. Don't get me wrong, that can be a great formula when it comes to 1800s romance, but it is only so-so in this particular case

Only OK............................................................ The opening premise of this story was pretty thin.   And then-------Esme was a little to much of a shrew.  She more then smug about how brilliant she thought she was. Quinton a little to guilty and self effacing.  What horrible things did he do?  Escape from an abusive family.   Sow his wild oats.  James and Catriona seemed like a couple of dolts.  I'm a MM fan so I was disappointed.

Loved it until they fell in love. I know. I know! That sounds crazy but I loved the tension, the love/hate bickering between the two, all of it up until they both realized they loved one another. It was like turning a bright light on in a dimly lit room. The 180 was just a bit too jarring. But that's just me, I kindof like my romances to keep the spitfire going till the end!
