Kyraryker’s quotes

"She thought it over, but couldn’t see any immediate loopholes other than the threat of her inner slut emerging, and she could darned well control that little bitch."— Susan Elizabeth Phillips


The Taming of Malcolm Grant (The MacGregors: Highland Heirs) - Paula Quinn

I was going to give this two stars because Quinn's writing is always readable technical/grammar wise but I ended up skimming more than I read because of being bored with the story and I'm pretty disappointed so, yeah, I didn't like it.

I can't believe this book was written by the same author who wrote Laird of the Mist, a book I absolutely love. I was mostly bored and the characters' motivations seemed forced and dragged out. The hero is supposedly a rake but hasn't been one for four years and the heroine is blind yet manages to get around in a way that no one can believe she is. She has a dog that wasn't trained but seems to be an elite seeing eye dog and her brother maybe wants her dead/out of his hair, maybe doesn't. Our hero's brother is falling in love with a brothel worker and a powerful family lead by a goodlooking sadistic dude wants them dead. There's also a feel good turncoat character semi-involved in a semi-love triangle.

I'm so close to giving up on Quinn. I might have to go read Laird of the Mist again to feel better. I hope others have a better experience with this book than I did :(
