Scottish Brides by Stephanie Laurens, Christina Dodd, Julia Quinn, Karen Ranney
“Scottish Brides” by S. Laurens, C. Dodd, J. Quinn, and K. Ranney. The J. Quinn story was typical of her style – very funny, very romantic. A sister is traveling in search of her brother who left a note saying he’s eloping, and a Scottish hottie is traveling to London pursuing his sister who has fled to her aunt’s hoping to have a London season. Both sibling issues are resolved, but hero & heroine fall for each other. The Laurens story is typical of her Cynster stories – strong male pursuing strong female – erotic cat and mouse game ensues. I really liked C. Dodd’s story. This didn’t feel compressed because her story is kind of like the last twenty pages of a regular novel. Before the story starts, the couple have had a history, and this story picks up 2 months after the heroine pushes the hero away. He returns and they have their happily ever after.
