Early Review: Seduced by a Scot by Julia London

Oct 12, 2018

There’s no matchmaking an unruly heart

When a prominent Scottish family faces a major scandal weeks before their daughter’s wedding, they turn in desperation to the enigmatic fixer for the aristocracy, Nichol Bain. Remarkably skilled at making high-profile problems go away, Nichol understands the issue immediately. The family’s raven-haired ward, Maura Darby, has caught the wandering eye—and rather untoward advances—of the groom.

Nichol assuredly escorts Maura toward his proposed solution: an aging bachelor for her to marry. But rebellious Maura has no interest in marrying a stranger, especially when her handsome traveling companion has captivated her so completely. Thankfully, Nichol loves a challenge, but traveling with the bold and brash Maura has him viewing her as far more than somebody’s problem. Which raises a much bigger issue—how can he possibly elude disaster when the heart of the problem is his own?


Seduced by a Scot is part of The Highland Grooms series, but it's a standalone romance. It was a bit slow paced at first but then picked up. I felt this romance to be too realistic in many ways. The main characters were far too emotionally practical. Their expectations for their future alone or together lacked passion. I was hoping for more moments of spontaneous intensity. Nichol's character was very distant, it was hard to connect with him. Although, I could understand why, based on his history. I was never carried away with the story. I hope to read more of London's work.
