BOOK REVIEW: The seduction of Miss Amelia Bell by Paula Quinn



Edmund MacGregor will do anything to save Scotland from English rule-even kidnap Lady Amelia Bell for ransom. As the daughter of a duke and the chancellor's betrothed, she's the perfect pawn in this game. But from the moment he first lays eyes on his spirited captive, he can't resist stealing a kiss . . .


Lady Amelia's duty is to marry well, but that hasn't stopped her from fantasizing about true love. So when a sexy Scot appears in her home, she's beguiled. When he kidnaps her, she's furious. Yet as Edmund introduces her to a world of passion beyond her wildest dreams, can she leave her family behind for this handsome Highlander? And will Edmund risk the only true home he's ever known to capture the heart of this lovely lass?

About the Author

New York Times bestselling author Paula Quinn lives in New York with her three beautiful children, three over-protective chihuahuas, and a loud umbrella cockatoo. She loves to read romance and science fiction and has been writing since she was eleven. She loves all things medieval, but it is her love for Scotland that pulls at her heartstrings.

My Review:
Give me a book that involves romance and Scottish Highlanders, and I’m a happy woman! “The Seduction of Miss Amelia Bell” by Paula Quinn definitely hits the mark with this great historical romance. The characters are great, and both Amelia and Edmund are people who you can relate to and root for. I love Amelia’s passionate nature and her rebellious side. You can’t help but like her. Edmund is the typical rogue at first, until he falls hard for Amelia. The writing style is great, and there is the perfect mixture of romance and action going on. I hate romance novels that are like one giant orgy, this one has some steamy sex scenes, but evens it out with an actual story line that is easy to follow. The sexual tension between Amelia and Edmund is thick, and as a reader you’re on the edge of your seat waiting for and wanting something to happen between them. The wait is worth it though, because when they do finally hook up, it is a steamy scene. I like that the writer also followed Amelia’s servant Sarah’s life in this novel. It wasn’t all about Amelia and Edmund, it also brought other characters stories into this novel.

I would definitely recommend this novel to all lovers of historical romance novels. Paula Quinn definitely has a knack when it comes to writing well-balanced romance novels. If you get a little hot thinking about Scottish Highlanders in their sexy kilts, than this novel is definitely for you!

I give “The Seduction of Miss Amelia Bell” a FIVE out of FIVE stars!
