Beware a Scot's Revenge by Sabrina Jeffries
Published by Pocket
Grade: B-

Lady Venetia Campbell's visit to her childhood home in Scotland takes a dramatic turn when she's kidnapped at pistol point by her father's sworn enemy. Sir Lachlan Ross is widely feared in his guise as The Scottish Scourge, but Venetia remembers her former neighbor as a handsome youth whose attentions she craved. Now a wickedly sexy man, Lachlan's appeal is even more intoxicating...and much more dangerous. Though Lachlan tries to treat her as his foe, his scorching kisses tell another story. And despite his plan to use her as a weapon against her father, Venetia is determined that Lachlan's lust for revenge will be trumped by an even more powerful desire...

It took me almost the entire length of the book to get used to the Heroine's name. I don't like it at all.

Venetia takes a trip back home to Scotland. She goes and gets herself kidnapped by her childhood friend. Lachlan has plans to hold Venetia for ransom, because Venetia's father owed his family a lot of money.

Poor Lachlan thinks that he is kidnapping a proper young miss. Haha. 'Little' Venetia has a mouth on her, and I enjoyed the back and forth banter between the two.

I did find that Lachlan tended to go in and out of his Scottish ancient, so that was weird. It didn't bother me too much, because as much as I love a highlander, the accents always throw me off.
Lachlan's wasn't too bad.

Beware a Scot's Revenge is part of the School for Heiresses series. You can read my review of the first book of the series here.

    Hey, I wanted to read this series, thanks for bringing it back to my attention, I lost track of it for a little bit but it's back in my mind...=)

    I really love the name Lachlan. I don't know why though.

    I read the first book in the series, it was all right. But this one looks good. I don't think I've read the book before this one. Do I have to read that one to understand what's going on in this one?

    Is this the second in the series? I read the first one a while back and liked it well enough. Thought it seemed a bit immature for some reason- but yeah, I liked it.

    Rowena, I like that name, too. You should join the authors mailing list. A few days before it was released in stores, I got a beautiful postcard in the mail about it.

    Hi Isabel, it's easy to read on it's own :)

    Hey Zeek, I remember you saying that that before. I know what you mean.
    This is the third, I think.
