Is he wearing that kilt...old traditions?

Everyone remember how I said that some girls in Never Seduce a Scoundrel would be popping up again? Here's another lady! And to make things even more interesting you learn about the Heiress for Book 5, Don't Bargain With the Devil, in this book as well! Oh and let's not forget that Lachlan was last seen in Never Seduce a Scoundrel as the Scottish Scourge that waylaid Amelia and Lucas four years earlier!

While this isn't my favorite book in the series, I think its the most amusing yet. I really wish Mrs. Harris' School for Young Ladies existed because if the graduates are any indication of the schooling practices I think it would be a fabulously fun time! Venetia doesn't broke any argument from anyone--practically everyone in the book got a good tongue-lashing from her, but she was also equally passionate about defending those she loved from a wrong committed. Lachlan...well he was a jerk, plain and simple. Pigheaded, high-handed and arrogant only begin to name his many sins. On occasion he showed chips in his armor, but when his own people start to question whether he can enter talks without bloodshed I think he needs to mend his ways.

The debt that Lachlan wants from Venetia's father really boils down to a very difficult and painful secret that the Earl had kept to keep from hurting those still alive. A secret that led to a lot of misunderstandings and sworn blood feuds unnecessarily. I would have thought, once he knew why Lachlan was thieving from his friends he might have pulled the boy aside. Lachlan was a hotblooded, righteous and angry youth--I don't doubt that if Venetia hadn't gotten caught up in the web of secrets and lies that the Earl would have been killed by Lacklan fairly soon.

Another interesting point towards the School is the fact that they all seem to be so well-versed in pleasing a guy. The oft-mentioned harem book couldn't possibly have been as detailed as they keep eluding too! Or else they all really are naturals. I didn't find there to be too many sex scenes, though I do wonder at Venetia's brain.

I will say this whenever I see a guy in a kilt now I'll be thinking 'I wonder if he's wearing it by old traditions or not?'.
