For anyone who might not have noticed the lovely Stella Price was the cover artist for this book.

Lady Susanna was forced to marry Blair, the Laird of the Ruthven clan from Scotland. I don't know how I feel about the forced marriage thing but I like the fact that they fall in love. After Blair saves her life he seduces her without letting her know that he is in fact her fiance. I thought this story was very well written. I really enjoyed the details of the scenery and of the Ruthven clan.

Susanna was well educated in a time when most women were just meant to marry and take care of their husbands. I like the fact that Blair not only accepted that but encouraged her to keep reading and discovering new things. I liked both the internal and external turmoil that was found in this book. Imagine thinking you were falling in love with someone while you were promised to someone else.

I really enjoyed this book, our here Blair was a very strong character who was at times a little scary. He knew what he wanted when it came to Susanna, just wasn't sure exactly how to get it. I like that he won her heart and that theirs was a prearranged marriage that worked out, but then when the guy looks like him hard not to fall in love. His wanting to protect Susanna was typically male but then again what man doesn't think they need to take care of us.

Kayleigh Jamison is a new author to me, but I like this book and will probably be looking into some more of her work as I find time, just another author to add to the list, I think that's going to happen a lot through this book club!

What did everyone else like or not like about this book?

I liked this book right away. I found it very hard to put down in fact. This would not have been a typical read for me but I loved the passion and closeness they felt for each other from the beginning before she knew who he was. I think this book was very well written I would love to read more from this author.

I find it greatly disturbing that no one mentioned Kelly... WE NEED MORE KELLY!!!!

I loved this book it is one of my favorite historicals ever. When I first read it I couldnt put it down either and since that first time I have reread it like 10 times.

I loved the way it flowed, the quirkiness of the relationship between blair and susanna and the way Kayleigh made a strong set of characters.

And the bitch (lol) wont give me Kellys book... She needs to write Kellys book.

Kelly was an excellent character... I can definitely see him having his own book! I loved how he didn't care what anyone thought of him. Charismatic, strong, and arrogant this guy added a lot to the story.

I'm definitely going to have to read more of Kayleigh Jamisons' books, so see if you can talk her into writing Kellys story!!! The question is will he settle down? I'd love to meet the lady strong enough to tame him!

Ian bothered me in the beginning but I appreciated his transformation in the end. I liked Fergus though and his stories and how she portrayed him as being able to captivate an audience, would like to see where that kid ends up.

I'm glad you guys enjoyed it! Stella has been bugging me for years about Kelly, and I tell her that I will gladly write his story when he shows me what it is! Smile

Well, that's tough to say. Possibly when she realizes who he is, I had fun writing that scene. Blair is such a strong, confident guy, but she manages to bring him low pretty good!

I enjoyed that scene very much, since they were both too stubborn and it was both of their fault that she found out the way she did!!! I like the emotion that was shown in the book, I really felt that I could relate with the characters.

The hand fasting ceremony was very well written also, I liked the fact that she embraced his culture and that the ceremony was outdoors and the words were spoken in Gaelic, the details you used to describe the scenery and clothes were amazing!

Agree with everyone else couldn't put it down! Love the historical books. I love when Authors write their Characters with an Accent, just brings the characters to life to me. I would also love to read Kelly's book, he's mysterious and sexy, who doesn't want more! thanks again for introducing me to a new fabulous Author to follow!

I'm glad you liked that scene, Pyper. I wasn't sure it would work.

Bluesun, thank you for reading and I'm pleased you enjoyed it. Writing dialect is often a risky choice- people tend to love it or hate it. Since I myself like it (Have you read The Proposition by Judith Ivory? Sigh, Mick...), and I was the one writing Leading, I took the risk.

My Internet has been out all day (indeed, most of the last two months) so forgive me if my replies sound short to everyone, I am on my phone. Smile

Just had to comment that I loved how when Susanna was kidnapped she said "I would rather bed a Scot than you, you louse!" and Blair replies "I'd be careful what ye wish for, my Lady." I was wondering exactly when he would show up and it was perfect! Its definitely an example of perfect timing!

I was also surprised when Susanna got her revenge with Spencer, he definitely deserved what he got! I didn't like the idea of him when he was first mentioned and offered his home, something didn't seem right and I soon found out why.

I'm glad you mentioned that scene! That little exchange of dialog was actually the catalyst for the whole book. It was a dream I had, and while I am not usually one to remember my dreams, I couldn't get this one out of my mind.

In point of fact, he has been chatty.

I must finish Alex's book first, though!
