Taking our history with spice...and footnotes even! Well done mesh of Scotland's troubles with English rule. Did not realize family tartans are rather recent.

Good!

One of my all time favorites to reread. A slight twist on the traditional romance novel making all the better.

This is the first book by Susan Johnson that I have read and I must say I was not impressed. The history lesson was good but I struggled to finish the story. The main characters were likeable but I was never convinced that them ending up together would be a good thing. I had a very hard time buying into the whole storyline.

Wow, would definitely suggest reading "Outlaw" before this book. The beginning of this book pretty much starts off where Outlaw left off. The author seems to assume readers have read Outlaw as she doesn't explain who characters are or how they found themselves in the situations they are in.

Eighteen? Really? I’m sorry, it's just incredibly hard for me to get into a story where the lead male character is only eighteen years old. I like my guys to be older and more mature. Yes, I know a lot of books have the female being super young also but I have double standards where it doesn't bother me, besides we all know woman mature super duper faster than men. So there is this road block of Robbie being only eighteen years old and then to boot his love interest Roxane is older, I'm thinking she is in her thirties. Another double standard of mine rearing it's ugly head, I don't like the women being older than the men. I have a feeling there are some Demi/Ashton fans out there cheering this book on but for me it severely affected my ability to get into this story.

With that being said the author is an incredibly gifted writer. She was able to write Robbie well enough that sometimes I forgot he was only eighteen. The interaction between Robbie and Roxane is smoking hot and jumps off the pages at you. Top-notch stuff.

Roxane was an interesting character. She openly acknowledges the fact she loves Robbie but doesn't see a logical way of being able to be with him. This story is completely different from a lot of typical romance books where the hero/heroine stay apart because they can't admit they love each other or there is the big misunderstanding. Here we have political drama, children, and sense of freedom. Kudos to the author for having Roxane be an intelligent woman who considers how good of a father Robbie would be to her children and if she would lose the freedom she has as a widow. I think here in these problems is where the age difference between these two really shows; Roxane thinks and struggles over logical issues and problems over her and Robbie being together while Robbie just thinks love is enough and all problems can be solved because of that. I was disappointed how the author made Roxane a little dumb towards the end of the book with Roxane not trusting Robbie. In fact the whole last part of the book was what I would consider crappy storylines.

This book dragged for me, I could never get into the stories or characters because of the afore mentioned issues. I did a lot of read-skipping. I'm kind of frustrated with the author because I think she has incredible talent for writing but I can't seem to get into her stories; you would think good writing would create a good story.

This story wasn't for me at all. The beginning was way better than the end, it just drug on for me. Readers who like the author, Johnson, might like it because as I said before Johnson has real talent as a writer but for some reason I just don't like her stories. Hmm I love her writing but hate her stories, does that make sense?

This is supposed to be a romance novel, but there is so little romance in it. I guess this book belongs in a series and all the interesting things happened before this book started. I missed seeing the heroes falling in love. I had a feeling I was dropped in the middle of the story without knowing what happened and who is who. Well, after I sorted out who is who, I t got worse. OMG. The hero is a 18 year old whelp who thinks he is invincible and immortal and can do no wrong. Come on! Well, I know that back then people grew up earlier, but anyway. And the heroine was at least 10 years older then the hero. I might be stereotypical, but I really didn't like it. And she had far too much baggage. Five children??? Come on! Wouldn't two or three be enough? And two ex-husbands? Is there anything more you can find? It was simply too much. An as if that wasn't enough the heroine couldn't decide what she wanted. She loved him one moment, hated the next, accepted one moment, rejected the next. Made him beg again and again and again. It's OK if the hero has to grovel a bit, but not so much that he doesn't have any dignity left! Especially if he didn't really do anything wrong. The heroine simply blamed him for all the troubles and made him a scape-goat for all her mistakes and misfortunes. I don't know what they saw in each other. Except for sex. I do not recommend this book.

In 1705, the outlawed Earl of Greenlaw returns from Holland to Edinburgh. Robbie Carre plans to claim the decade-plus older Countess of Kilmarnok as his and to reclaim the estate stolen from him. Roxane Forrester has survived marriages, childbirth, politics, and the machinations of Scotland-s most powerful individuals. Yet the thirty- plus-year-old beauty cannot resist the charming Robbie whom she watched grow from boy to man.

Robbie's enemies will use anyone as bait to capture the insolent lad. The Duke of Queensbury thinks Roxane is the perfect lure to capture Robbie. To gain her cooperation, he will use her beloved children as blackmailing tool. To protect her children (including Robbie) even from her deceased husband's family, Roxane turns away from her lover to another powerful noble. However, she failed to factor in the fact that Robbie's love for her will impel him to risk everything to gain Roxane by his side.

TO PLEASE A LADY is a daring, unique and well-written story that will please many of the author's fans, but shock others. Roxane is a wonderful character whose bravery seems inspiring. Robbie was a charmer in his previous appearance. However, in this novel, he seems more like a recalcitrant teenager than a loving hero, which in turn hurts the romance between him and his older beloved. The secondary cast adds a feel of intrigue with their plots, counterplots, and double crossing. Susan Johnson heats up Scotland with this fast-paced historical romance.
