Scotland, 1857 A story that runs a gamut of emotions that tore at my heart from the first page as I had a strong visual and physical image of Connie in my mind. Maddison Michaels has an amazing gift with her pen that bring her characters alive and invest the reader in suspense, a mystery and a slow building romance that is beyond compare. A mask of perfection. That is what she wore when she was forced to present herself at the ball her husband was hosting. The Duke. The Monster behind the smile. How fooled she had been, but at her mother's insistence she was to marry a title and endure. Dr Alex McGuiness was reluctantly attending the ball due to the insistence of his sister Sophie, Connie's best friend. Alex had known her since she was young and sweet. But all that changed with her debut when it seemed all she cared about was her appearance and catching a Duke. When he finally did see her, he knew something was wrong and figured it out. But she would not confide in him. But everything changed the next morning when Connie woke up beside her husband who had been murdered. Blood everywhere. She remembered nothing.... Gripping, mesmerizing, page turning and a story I will not soon forget. One of the best books I have read, although not surprising coming from this author. I highly recommend!
The Sinful Scot is an outstanding historical romance by Maddison Michaels. I think this is my first book by this author, but wow, it won't be the last. Ms. Michaels has given readers a well-written book furnished with a stellar cast of characters. Constance tried to make her mother happy by marrying a duke. Unfortunately, he was an abusive, evil duke...until Constance woke up next to a dead duke. Alec arrived at the Duke's ball the night before he was murdered, only because he promised his friend he would check on Constance. Alec helps her escape after Constance's brother-in-law claims she killed the duke. Constance and Alec's story is packed with drama, humor, action, spice and suspense. I enjoyed every page of this book and look forward to reading more from Maddison Michaels in the future. The Sinful Scot is book 3 of the Saints & Scoundrels Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book that I received from NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

The Sinful Scot (Saints & Scoundrels Book 3) by Maddison Michaels is an exciting, and mysterious Regency Romance. Can be read as a stand alone. Set in Scotland. Follow, Constance Campbell, the Duchess ...
