Review: Romancing the Scot by May McGoldrick

by MK French

Hugh Pennington prides himself on being a fair judge of the law and enjoys ballooning in his spare time. Grace Ware is near to death when he opens the crate she had been boxed in; she had escaped from the men responsible for killing her father, who had once been Napoleon's tactical officer. She hides her identity and in spite of herself gets to know Hugh. Her identity is eventually revealed when danger follows her to Hugh's door.

Romancing the Scot
November 2017; Swerve; ebook (284 pages)
romance, historical
Romancing the Scot is a Pennington family novel, though it isn't necessary to have read the others in the series to enjoy this one.

Grace is an intelligent woman with plenty of guts and determination. Hugh is open to new ideas and is able to discuss things without taking it personally, a wonderful trait in any character. Their relationship develops slowly, and I enjoyed the subtle issues that were brought up in their background as well as with the overall social structures. Most of the intrigue is outside of the social whirl, and here it actually brought the drama to Grace.

Jo is a great character as Hugh's sister and eventually Grace's friend, so I look forward to seeing her story next.
