The Seduction Of Elliot McBride

December 28th, 2016
Author: Jennifer Ashley    Series: Mackenzies & McBrides #5


Juliana St. John was raised to be very proper. After a long engagement, her wedding day dawns—only for Juliana to find herself jilted at the altar.

Fleeing the mocking crowd, she stumbles upon Elliot McBride, the tall, passionate Scot who was her first love. His teasing manner gives her an idea, and she asks Elliot to save her from an uncertain future—by marrying her…

After escaping brutal imprisonment, Elliot has returned to Scotland a vastly wealthy yet tormented man. Now Juliana has her hands full restoring his half-ruined manor in the Scottish Highlands and trying to repair the broken heart of the man some call irredeemably mad. Though beautiful and spirited, Juliana wonders if that will be enough to win a second chance at love.

This book may contain explicit intimate scenes, so if you are not 18+ then I probably wouldn’t recommend it for younger readers.
My Review

I loved it. I tend to like to read about damaged men, and boy was Elliot a very troubled man due to his captivity in India. He may go off his rocker to a point where he becomes violent, not knowing what he is doing – thinking he is still back in India – at times, but at others you can see a kind man behind that hard scarred surface of his.

Some aspects of the book that I really enjoyed was that while he was in captivity, he thought about Juliana, which she is what got him through it all an ended up leading him to arriving at her wedding unannounced to try to keep her from marrying and also I liked how he was man enough to step up to take care of little Priti, bringing her back to Scotland and being her father even though he didn’t know if he was 100% her biological father or not. I just that was very sweet and caring of him plus I liked how Jennifer wrote her, she was quite cute.

All I can say, I am looking forward to continue on with this series as I love how Jennifer Ashley writes her highlander heroes.
