in the series but I am wagering that the others are just as good When Scottish Lady Rois Drummond believes her father, The Earl of Brom is about to be accused of treason to the Englishman Sir Griffin Wescott she steps forward and accuses Griffin of compromising her to deflect from the politics What Rois doesn t think will happen ultimately happens when Griffin offers for her hand, knowing she is a

What Rois doesn t think will happen ultimately happens when Griffin offers for her hand, knowing she is a liar and hoping she will speak the truth before the vows Hmmmm and the plot thickens when Rois sticks her her lie and ends up Griffin s wife.Rois goes into the marriage believing the worst about her new English husband, but soon realizes that her preconceptions were wrong Sir Griffin not only is an honorable man, but he may just be the love of her life Shame that it is that Rois simply can t tell the truth to her husband, but Griffin has secrets of his own The politics of the time lead to a story filled with suspense, the romance is is passionate and real Rois comes off as impetuous and immature at first but evolves into a confident and honorable heroine Griffin is the dream hero from the first page He of course has his issues, but her always treats his woman with respect and understanding, even when he know she isn t forthcoming with him.His Seduction is the 5th book in the epic MacGruder series With each and every story Diana Cosby just keeps getting better and better Her characters come alive with her story telling and the reader becomes attached to each and every one I highly recommend His Seduction as well as any other book in the MacGruder series KIMBERLY 4 Stars Brilliant His SeductionBy Diana Cosby Summery courtesy of goodreads.comAn Impulsive Act Lady Rois

imagined ReviewRois and Griffin bewitched me with their witty banter and chemistry, I loved His Seduction it was set in Scotland when William Wallace was fighting for Scottish independence and Edward Long shanks was doing everything in his power to stop it from ever happening.Rois impulsiveness and leads her into an unexpected and unwanted marriage in the hope it will protect her father from Sir Griffin Westcott, an emissary from Edward Long shanks Rois is feisty, obstinate and brave and utterly misguided Whereas Griffin is strong and ultra protective, with hidden secrets that make His Seduction a brilliant read.4 stars A lovely romance with two people caught in the middle of a battle between countries His Seduction was a wonderful highland romance Great read Rois was a strong heroine, though her tendency to impulsiveness tended to get her into a lot of trouble I liked her and the fact that she didn t back down from anything But, her aforementioned impulsiveness made me

and the fact that she didn t back down from anything But, her aforementioned impulsiveness made me want to shake her She would get into her head to do something, completely disregarding that is was a stupidly dangerous thing to do Then, when trouble inevitably came, someone read Griffin would have to get her out But, I didn t mind too much because she did eventually learn from her mistakes and admitted to them So, I ended up liking her character.Griffin was also a great character He was a perfect hero Clever, determined, sweet, and always conscious of what was right I really liked him.The romance was well done I appreciated that it developed realistically, beginning with Rois trusting Griffin despite her perception of him as an enemy They definitely had some sparks flying and they were hot I thought they were a lovely couple.The plot moved quickly I was hooked the entire way through There was a surprise betrayal at the end that I never saw coming And the ending was perfect.His Seduction was a lovely read If you re looking for a wonderful highland romance, this is your book Thanks to Netgalley and Kensington Books Zebra for a copy Historically not a bad read, but I think because its the fifth in a series, and I haven t read any of them, I was a bit confused, it can be read as stand alone, but there wasn t enough introduction and background to build from You kinda meet the characters from the previous books and its a bit overwhelming and I kept thinking that I wanted to go back and read their stories.Griffin s character is interesting, it s presented quite well, you feel his emotions and struggle and you understand him a Historically not a bad read, but I think because its the fifth in a series, and I haven t read any of them, I was a bit confused, it can be read

I m giving this book a lower star rating We are told she is kind and intelligent, that she is everything any man would want Yet I didn t see it, she acted on impulse, made lots of mistakes, put them in danger and trouble many times I found myself judging her And I got tired of reading about her green eyes the color of Scotland s fields.And I kinda don t like it when the two main characters are pushed into each other by other forces, natural or supernatural It s so much stronger when in the end it s their own feelings and decisions that keep them together, even if they made mistakes before they realize it.Overall, interesting historical read, but the heroine was not portrayed well enough for me to enjoy itThis review is for a free copy courtesy of Kensington Books via NetGalley A rash

creating a special reader character bond I especially enjoyed the reappearance of past MacGruders series characters and how they were blended into this story line With just a touch of paranormal, His
