review and tour: seduced by a rogue by amanda scott

Seduced By a Rogue begins eight years after Jenny’s story from Tamed By a Laird; this time the focus is on Jenny’s cousin Mairi. As the book opens, Mairi and her younger half-sister Fiona meet their respective potential love interests as they explore one of the family estates, Dunwythie Mains. From here, the story progresses at a painfully slow pace until finally Robert Maxwell (who was set up as Mairi’s interest) kidnaps Mairi. This is in sharp contrast to Tamed By a Laird which featured Jenny taking control of her own life and refusing to follow her family’s wishes. Though Mairi is not mistreated, she is forced to remain locked in a tower with only a kitten for company for a good portion of the day. The descriptions of the kitten at play were the best parts of Seduced By a Rogue, which is to say I didn’t enjoy much of the story. The book did pick up toward the end when a shocking twist causes Mairi to finally stand strong.
