AWESOME - AWESOME - AWESOME Loved this book! My heart ache for Leam and Kitty, all the ups and downs in their relationship. Just when you thought things would work out for them, (near the end of the book), a huge twist was thrown in by this author. Highly recommend this book - loved not only the main character's but just loved the secondary ones too. On the Falcon Club 2!!!

Great start to a new series. The first few chapters were a bit slow then it picked up. The ending was a bit rushed for my tastes. The main characters were both warm and mysterious! The plot had me on the edge of my seat!! Cant wait to read about Jian in the next book, well done Mrs. Ashe :)

This is a book I will absolutely read again...and again. Slow for the first couple of chapters but the steamy love scenes and intrigue made up for that. I love it when I think I know what is going to happen, but then the totally unexpected happens! If you enjoy a GREAT page-turner, do not waste time contemplating getting this one. Just buy it now, grab snacks and a drink and settle down for a wonderful ride! THANK YOU, Mrs. Ashe. I cant wait for more from you.

I loved the characters, the situation, the humor, and the (sigh) romance. In fact, I enjoyed it so much, I went and bought and read the second in this series and am waiting for the third. I also recommended the author to my mother.

Ah, to roam once more on the Moor! To be simply Aseidia, daughter of Gilgalesh, not the Magyc Thief. <br> I gripped the tome of spells and enchantments against my chest firmly, knowing I had only to repeat such a stunt of thievery thrice, and every tome of Magyc across the lands of Pipringard would be in my guarded protection. <br> As I stepped into the bright light of morning of the Drand, Ancient Orthalon's trees whispered behind me menacingly. The Forest knew I had once again escaped its challenges and found my path out of the ever changing Woods. <br> I could see there on the Moor, far on the horizon, where stood Illi, the Great Willow. Around the great Tree, barely visible from my marching path, were the several tents of the pupils of Gilgalesh. <br> Picking up my pace, I began to run across the Moor, swift as a gazelle. Elvish blood ran thick in my veins; swift running, and long endurance become second nature after a long period of my father's training. A sprint without respite across the wide Drand was hard, but quite within my limit. I could have gone much longer had the need arose. <br> I arrived by the Willow around noontide, when Gilgalesh oversaw the training of his pupils, a well as two other warriors, whom were teachers themselves. Gilgalesh stood with his back to my approach, but I knew a surely as the Dawn, that he knew of my being there. <br> Not far from my father, stood Rolawin, who was sparring with another student, using a length of wood. The wood helped so that the worst injury one could aquire was a severe bruise. <br> Gilgalesh stood with his arms behind his back as he watched the two fight. Surprisingly, Rolawin could hold his own against his opponent, a strong looking Elf-maid, whose long, golden hair streamed behind her as she danced around the hunter, fighting him with no quarter. <br> Rolawin's fair face was a picture of pure concentration, while the Elf-maid continued to block his assaults. <br> Then suddenly, it appeared to be pure luck or a fluke, the Elf-maid's length of wood was sent spinning out of her hand by Rolawin. After a bit of shock, the two bowed respectfully to each other. <br> I then walked over to Gilgalesh. "Father," said I, placing a hand on his broad shoulder. "I see you have taken on the lad," I commented. <br> "Indeed, daughter," replied Gilgalesh. "He will make a fine warrior, without any doubt," told the Wise. He looked down at me with an ageless face, neither young nor old, with a hint of a smile around his serious face. <br> "I am most certainly glad of that," said I, looking away from his face, and around the camp of tents. "Resh told testimony that my enchantment of protection works," I imformed him. "Also did I succeed in stealing Ratokst's tome of Magyc. None of his bounty hunters could capture me." I looked over to where Rolawin has standing, breathing heavily after the hard spar. <br> "Quite so, Aseidia." <br> "The lad was one of them," told I, in a lowered voice. "But he chose to follow me into Orthalon, instead." <br> "The young man also just now defeated one of my fellow teachers," Gilgalesh informed me, turning away from me.

I really loved this book! In fact, I enjoyed it SO much that as soon as I finished it I immediately purchased the next two in the trilogy. I think Katharine Ashe is an AWESOME writer,  and now in my new favorites list. Though this was the first book I've read of hers, I was amazed at the detail and development of the characters. Before anyone says she didn't use the correct spelling etc. they need to consider the time, the place , the culture, and the dialect. ... I thought she did a MARVELOUS job of getting the Scots spelling of the words correct so as to give the reader the chance to mentally imagine this beautiful man and his super sexy voice. I hope they are able to come out with an audio version using a narrator who can perfect the Scots language/pronunciation. I would swoop that up in a hurry. The detail in the set up of the characters, Leam and Kitty, was perfect. Their story was filled with laughter as well as tears while the ending really throws you for a loop. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who truly enjoys historical romance!  If you aren't into reading about Braw men and fair lassies, then you may prefer some other type of story, however, in my opinion.... this is up at the top of the lists of greats.  Well done Ms. Ashe! Bravo! And thank you for the hours of entertainment I enjoyed while I was sitting on the edge of my seat and unable to put the book down. Just started the story of Jinan last night. Yeah!

KATHARINE ASHE IS A FIRST RATE HISTORICAL ROMANCE NOVELIST.   When  A Scot Loves A Lady is the first in Katharine Ashe's Falcon Club Series.  And a great series it is.   As a matter of fact every, single book that Katharine writes is truly outstanding, in my opinion.   Her plots are rich, her characters are deep, and the relationships of her heroes and heroines are mature.   After I finish any one of her books,  others pale by comparison.  I have loved her since her first romance, Swept Away By A Kiss,  and I have never been disappointed.  I read When A Scot Loves A Lady, as well as the next two in the Falcon Club series, one after the other  Can't wait for the next two in this series!.
