About THE SEDUCTION OF MISS AMELIA BELL
Edmund MacGregor will do anything to save Scotland from English rule-even kidnap Lady Amelia Bell for ransom. As the daughter of a duke and the chancellor’s betrothed, she’s the perfect pawn in this game. But from the moment he first lays eyes on his spirited captive, he can’t resist stealing a kiss.
Lady Amelia’s duty is to marry well, but that hasn’t stopped her from fantasizing about true love. So when a sexy Scot appears in her home, she’s beguiled. When he kidnaps her, she’s furious. Yet as Edmund introduces her to a world of passion beyond her wildest dreams, can she leave her family behind for this handsome Highlander? And will Edmund risk the only true home he’s ever known to capture the heart of this lovely lass?

THE SEDUCTION OF MISS AMELIA BELL by Paula Quinn is an exciting Scottish Historical Romance set in Eighteen century Scotland. First in “The MacGregors: Highland Heirs” new series and what a beginning!
“A Highland rogue and an Adventurous Lady”
This is the tale of Edmund MacGregor, a Highlander,who wishes to keep the sovereignty of his nation(Scotland) and Lady Amelia Bell, who is the niece of the 2nd Duke of Queensberry, and MacGregor clan nemesis, and who is betrothed to Lord Chancellor of Scotland, Earl of Seafield, whom she doesn’t want to marry. What a tale!
Fast paced and passion filled! What an adventure!
Filled with passion, romance, danger, a kidnapping for ransom, the quest to save Scotland from English rule, revenge, danger, a kidnapping for ransom that turns into so much more. Oh, did I forgot to mention love and passion! The secondary characters are entertaining and engaging as well. I loved Sarah, Amelia’s best friend and ladies maid and Edmund’s cousin, Luke. They make a wonderful couple. Then you have Malcolm, another cousin, can’t wait to see who will capture his heart, but I think I might know who that will be,hopefully. Than there is Darach, the youngest MacGregor, oh he is adorable.
The neighboring clan, the Buchanan’s. Oh and you have Lady Amelia’s papa, who loves her dearly, and will do what he has to, in order to save his beloved daughter. And her mother, who I disliked immensely. What a not so lady, she was or is! I would have like to see her get her upcomings.
I absolutely loved this tale of intrigue and romance. A must read! I can hardly wait for the next installment. Ms. Quinn is a true storyteller. I would highly recommend “THE SEDUCTION OF MISS AMELIA BELL” to anyone who enjoys Scottish Warriors, Highlanders, a struggle with emotions, drama, and feisty Lasses. Received for an honest review.
