Review: When a Scot Ties the Knot by Tessa Dare

Series: Castles Ever After Book #3
Format: Ebook
Rating: 4 Stars
How I Got It: Borrowed from the library (Overdrive)
Genre: Historical Romance
Publisher: Avon

Synopsis courtesy of Goodreads

On the cusp of her first London season, Miss Madeline Gracechurch was shyly pretty and talented with a drawing pencil, but hopelessly awkward with gentlemen. She was certain to be a dismal failure on the London marriage mart. So Maddie did what generations of shy, awkward young ladies have done: she invented a sweetheart.

A Scottish sweetheart. One who was handsome and honorable and devoted to her, but conveniently never around. Maddie poured her heart into writing the imaginary Captain MacKenzie letter after letter … and by pretending to be devastated when he was (not really) killed in battle, she managed to avoid the pressures of London society entirely.

Until years later, when this kilted Highland lover of her imaginings shows up in the flesh. The real Captain Logan MacKenzie arrives on her doorstep—handsome as anything, but not entirely honorable. He’s wounded, jaded, in possession of her letters… and ready to make good on every promise Maddie never expected to keep.

So, this is really going to be an awful review. The book was great. It's just me. I hand-write my reviews and couldn't write due to a wrist injury. So, I've forgotten a lot of the specifics. Sorry.

This one was a step up after the second book. Maddie was that great combination of a dreamer and realist. I also really appreciate how passionate about her choosen profesion she is. Logan is a sweet guy who really cares about the men in his life. Actually, Tessa Dare seems to write a lot of heroes like that.

The whole romance plot is kind of kooky, but it works. There are serious moments, but mostly it's a romantic comedy full of situation comedy and humor. I blew through this book and loved it.

Thanks for reading!
