Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Jennifer McQuistons debut historical romance, What Happens in Scotland, is a lively, romantic adventure about a wedding that neither the bride or the groom remembers.

Lady Georgette Thorold has always been wary of marriage, so when she wakes up  next to an attractive Scotsman with a wedding ring on her finger, its easy to understand why she panics and flees. Convinced that Georgette is a thief, her may-be husband, James McKenzie, searches for her. As both try to recall what happened that fateful night, they begin to realize that their attraction and desire for each other is undeniable. But is it enough?

Fans of Sarah MacLean and Mary Balogh will enjoy this utterly charming historical romance from award-winning author Jennifer McQuiston that features unforgettable characters and a satisfying mix of adventure and passion.

Review:

"In McQuiston's Victorian romance debut, Lady Georgette Thorold, a beautiful young widow, awakens naked in bed, married to an equally naked stranger. Angry and confused, the prudish Georgette knocks out James MacKenzie with a chamber pot before running away. Upon being roused, James cannot find his purse; he assumes his wife stole it and vows to see her punished. The second son of an earl and formerly a bad boy, James is now his Scottish town's solicitor and is determined to make good. McQuiston provides a strong backstory for James but little for Georgette, and their separation until the book's halfway point undermines its promising screwball start. In a more thoughtful and tender second half, the two go about solving the mysteries of their marriage, falling in love along the way, but the book's lost footing is never quite regained.

Synopsis:

She Woke Up Married

When Lady Georgette Thorold awoke she saw . . . her corset hanging from the armoire . . . a very handsome, very naked Scotsman lying beside her . . . and a wedding ring on her finger!

Before the attractive stranger can tell her his name, Georgette does the only sensible thing—she runs for it.

Little does she know, James MacKenzie isn't clear on what happened the night before either. All he knows is that his money is missing and the stunning woman who just ran from the room is either his wife or a thief . . . or possibly both.

What happens in Scotland when two complete strangers fall madly, deeply in love?
