Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Set in the Scottish Highlands, a sensual romance about a young English lady and the Laird who holds her hostage from the New York Times bestselling author who “creates magic…and leaves her fans begging for more” (Romantic Times Book Reviews).

Daria Babcock believes she is perilously close to becoming a spinster. With all the young ladies she knows having found marriage and starting families, Daria is green with envy. When a letter comes from her grandmother Mamie in Scotland asking for help, Daria decides it’s the perfect opportunity to get away.

The Laird of Dundavie, Jamie Campbell, has just learned that his uncle has been giving away the family fortune and emptying the clan’s coffers. When Jamie confronts the culprit responsible for swindling his uncle, an elderly woman named Mamie, she shoots him. And when he wakes up, Mamie’s beautiful granddaughter is tending to his wounds.

Intrigued by the lovely lass, Jamie kidnaps Daria with plans to hold her for ransom. But what he doesn’t plan on are the wild sparks that fly as soon as they’re alone.

Review:

"London's 1811 Scottish Highlands romance is atmospheric but cloying. Gently bred 21-year-old Daria Babcock, the last unmarried young woman in her social circle, travels to Scotland, ostensibly on a family mission to bring money to her grandmother. After Daria's chaperone deserts her, she arrives at the addled matriarch's cottage and finds one room occupied by an unconscious Scotsman with a gunshot wound. When Jamie Campbell awakens, Daria does her best to care for him while figuring out why he's in her grandmother's house. The sensual connection between Jamie and Daria feels manufactured rather than organic, but detailed characterization encourages the reader to fill in the blanks. London (The Seduction of Lady X) brings a smooth, flowing cadence to the story, right up until a hasty, unfinished ending that leaves several threads dangling in the heather-scented wind, undoubtedly to be explored in future books. Agent: Jenny Bent, the Bent Agency." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

Who is the captive and who is the captor? When a sexy laird holds a spirited English lady for ransom, she turns the tables and steals his heart.

The lush Scottish Highlands are a tempting setting for seduction in New York Times bestselling author Julia London’s sparkling new novel.

The last person Daria Babcock expects to find in her grandmother’s home is a brawny, naked Highlander. She doesn’t buy Mamie’s explanation about finding the poor man shot in the woods. Nor does she trust the gorgeous laird, who insists his own memory fails him. But Daria came to Scotland looking for adventure and romance, and after the intriguing stranger kidnaps her, she gets her wish—and so much more. . . .
