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

Loose plot threads with some sweetness

Claimed By A Scottish Lord by Melody Thomas (June 07,2010) - Melody Thomas

I was pleasantly surprised with how sweet the hero was in this, pretty gone for the heroine once meeting and getting to know her.

 

Had some magical elements trying to tie in Arthurian legends but was ignored for most of the middle of the book. Some other mystery murder, hidden villain threads that were too loose to make a lot of sense and care about. The last 15%ish was about wrapping those up and I felt it killed the HEA good feelings a bit.

 

Wish this had focused on the couple more because they were so very sweet and good together. There was a scene towards the end where the hero arrived home after weeks of being away that nailed the emotion and heat perfectly.

 

Definitively worth a read if you can find it
