A Borrowed Scot

A Borrowed Scot
The Tulloch Sgàthán Trilogy book 3
By Karen Ranney


An American discovers that nothing is quite as he expected: neither the estate he inherited in Scotland nor the woman he was forced to marry.

Veronica MacLeod knows nothing about the man who suddenly appeared to prevent her from committing the most foolish and desperate act of her life. Recently named Lord Fairfax of Doncaster Hall, the breathtaking, secretive stranger agrees to perform the one act of kindness that can rescue the Scottish beauty from scandal and disgrace—by taking Veronica as his bride.



How would you feel if you were torn from the family you loved and cherished and thrown into a home where you are all of a sudden ridiculed and belittled at every turn; where, cousins would hate you for merely living with them and an Aunt who never wanted you there in the first place?  Not only that but you also seem to be different from everybody else, you were told by the ones you love that it is a gift but the rest of the world thinks you are crazy.

That is what happens to Veronica so when she finds a Society who says they will help her learn about this gift she is all for attending their meeting.  Unfortunately it is not quite what you would expect.  In steps Montgomery, first off he can’t believe somebody sent him to this place to find out about some mirror that is supposedly enchanted, second he can’t believe what he is witnessing and determines to put a stop to it.

Thus Montgomery and Veronica are thrown together sealing their fate.  They will go on a wonderful journey to Scotland where we learn about their deepest secrets, also a lot about hot air ships.  It is here that they will learn how to rely on each other and once again learn to feel as they let go of their past.

The author weaves a nice story and has created characters that play off each other well.  She takes us into the bowels of England and up into the wonders of Scotland painting each scene so that we feel like we are there.

This series is one I would like to read more of.

Grade C+
