CHRISTMAS IN SCOTLAND (and other places) by Lecia Cornwall
Ah, Christmas in the Scottish Highlands. Sounds wonderful, doesn’t it?
My wonderful mother-in-law was Scottish, born in Glasgow. I remember telling her about an ad I’d seen in a magazine, offering a Scottish castle for rent over the holidays. Visitors (up to twenty people) could come and spend a glorious Christmas in the Highlands. My mother-in-law looked at me as if I were daft, and said, “Are you crazy? It’s cold and damp in the Highlands, and those old castles are drafty. You’d never get warm or dry!” Not very romantic, perhaps, but practical. It certainly is easier to enjoy a white Christmas from indoors, by the fire, with good company, a Christmas tree, and a hot drink. Our Christmases with my in-laws here in Canada were always warm and wonderful, and though she might not have welcomed winter in a Highland castle, my mother-in-law brought the best Scottish traditions with her, and never stopped longing to be in Scotland.

This is the my first Sarah MacLean, and I have to admit that I was attracted by the cover first and foremost. While I thought things got off to a slow start, I become wrapped up in the plot and had a hard time putting it down. I really enjoyed the protagonists, and found that they complemented each other perfectly. Both of them have secrets to protect, and they will do anything to ensure that their skeletons remain locked in a closet, out of sight. Duncan, while wealthy beyond his dreams and the owner of several influential newspapers, is being blackmailed by the one person who knows of his past. Georgiana, ruined at 16 and now the single mother of a precocious 9 year old, burns with rage at the society that shunned her, and how dismisses her daughter Caroline as so much trash. Read more

I was in the mood for a historical romance, so I fired up my Kindle and started reading Twice Tempted. I was hooked from the first page. I wasn’t sure what I was getting into, but a sweet romance, sprinkled with spicy interludes and a light spy thriller wasn’t it. I enjoyed as the mystery slowly revealed itself, as well as the secondary characters helping Alex and Fiona solve it. They actually made the read for me, because Chuffy and Mairead were so unique and their eccentricities were delightfully surprising. Read more

Thank you to the Manga Maniac Café for inviting me to guest at their site today. I am a fan of both manga and cafes, although I am not certain about maniacs. I guess it depends on what type of maniac you are. I am maniacal about IPAs, peanut butter, and black sweaters, myself. Not to mention tall, dark-haired British men (see: Most of my heroes).
I am in the middle of Twice Tempted, and my project for the rest of the day is to finish reading it. Check back soon for a review!
