    The story will keep you on your toes

    Who murdered the despicable and abusive Duke of Kilmaine? There were certainly a lot of people who were disgusted with his appalling behavior toward his second wife, Constance, and his first wife who allegedly killed herself.  However, due to the location of the dead body next to Connie in her bed, the Duke's cowardly brother, Fergus blames her and plans to have her arrested and placed in an asylum. But not if Dr. Alec McGuiness has anything to say about it. Time is of the essence when Connie and Alec flee to Inverness to find proof of who actually murdered the Duke. Is it Fergus? And why and who are the people trying to kidnap Connie?  This is my first Maddison Michaels book and she certainly keeps the reader on their toes with many diverse characters and surprising plot twists leading to a shocking climax. I love a good romance with a bit of a mystery and this book delivers.  Thank you to Ms. Michaels for giving me the opportunity to read this book with no expectation of a positive review.

    Emotional

    This story depicts a very brave woman in the character of Connie. Despite all her suffering when she is wrongly accused of murdering her husband she decides to fight back. Her protector is the fearless Alec who is truly a gentleman and a scholar. The two go in search of answers and discover all manner of evil. They are doing this while trying to stay ahead of a killer and the police. This is a remarkable story of strength, determination and courage on both their parts. It is a journey that allows for redemption, forgiveness and love to bloom.

    Wow! What a fantastic Read!

    *Phew* Talk about a walk through time that captured not only my attention but my heart as well! New to Maddison Michaels's work, I wondered if I would be lost reading the third book in the " Saints & Scoundrels " first, even though it classified itself as a standalone. ( Hey, it happens ) I was pleasantly surprised I had no issues following along with the emotional masterpiece. Set in the late 1800's Duchess Constance Campbell is about to show everyone, including herself, she is made of tougher skin than anyone could have imagined, then again Dr. Alec McGuiness might have an inkling. Alec sent just sent to check on the Duchess, finds himself caught up in murder, mayhem, and coming face to face with his past in one fell swoop while she awakes to find herself living a nightmare, gruff, buff, and all heroic Alec has his work cut out for him! Heated connections cut through the misery surrounding a vengeful plot thats chalked full of suspense, intense and so much sinfully delicious romance, It's no wonder I was hooked from the very start! Maddison Michaels has gained another fan! A fantabulous historical romance that will keep you wanting more!

    An interesting historical fiction

    Wow, this is such an intense read, I enjoyed every minute of it. The story started on a sad note but it ended happily and that's all that matters. I loved the characters and think that this is a must-read for all historical fiction fans, especially if you enjoy a little mystery & intrigue along with romance. I found it to be an entertaining read.

    Great Read

    Series: Saints & Scoundrels #3 Publication Date: 1/27/20 Number of Pages: 400 While there is no trigger warning in the book blurb, there is one at the beginning of the book. Of course, you wouldn’t see that until you’d already bought the book, so, I thought I’d go ahead and mention it here. If you are particularly sensitive/susceptible to reading about those kinds of things, you should be aware that domestic abuse – severe beatings and rape – are talked about in this book. I thought the author handled that subject matter well and got her point across without getting overly graphic. I thought it was all really well done. One would think that Constance and Alec were opposites and could never be a good match. Alec is a self-made man who works for a living even though he is the second son of an earl and his working is frowned upon. Alec works tirelessly to help, as a doctor, those who have no champions. Constance’s sole goal in life was to marry a title – specifically, a duke. Well – she sure managed to reach that goal. What is missing from that scenario is that, as children, they knew and liked each other very much. Then, Constance (Connie) was sweet and loving and greatly admired Alec. What happened? Well – there are parents – particularly mothers – who seem to be spawns of Satan. The opening chapter shows what Constance Campbell’s life has been like for the last three years – since she married Duncan Campbell, the Duke of Kilmaine and moved to Scotland to live in Castle Kilmaine. It also shows that she’s stronger than you’d think given the weak-willed way she bent to her mother’s desires rather than her own. She’d certainly have to have some strength to her to endure all she has for the last three years and not be a huddled, whimpering, mass of fears. So, while I didn’t admire the way she acquiesced to her mother’s desires, I did admire that she had managed to endure her brute of a husband and had managed to survive without going stark-raving mad. I liked her very much. Alec McGuiness is only attending the Duke of Kilmaine’s ball in order to speak with the Duchess of Kilmaine – and he’s only doing that because their mutual friend Sophie asked him to do so. When she finally appears on the stairs, he loses his breath because she is still so very beautiful. Then, when he speaks to her, his sharp physician's eye notices the telltale signs of the abuse to which she is subjected. How can he help her? When Constance (Connie) awakens the morning following the ball, she feels groggy and disoriented – at least until she sees the lifeless body of her husband sprawled across her bed. He’s been viciously stabbed and there is blood all over the place, including all over Connie. Did she finally snap and murder him? She’s not sure, but she knows her first order of business has to be to get her step-daughter, Amelie, away from the castle to protect her from her uncle Fergus. Everyone immediately assumes Connie snapped and killed the duke – including Fergus, the duke’s brother. Alec doesn’t believe a word of it and quickly helps Connie escape the castle where she’s been confined. Once they are away from there, everything breaks loose – everybody is chasing Connie and Alec and Connie and Alec are trying to find out who the real murderer is. The answer will surprise you – and perplex you. One thing that perplexed me was a ‘monthly dowry’. That is one I’ve never heard of, but maybe it was possible. I can’t imagine any circumstances under which a potential groom would agree to that – but – it just doesn’t seem feasible to me and every time I saw it mentioned it just jarred me right out of the story. ** Note -- I asked the author about this and she said it was possible. However, I also asked several other knowledgable British authors about it and they said this would not have been possible. I also have to add that I thought Connie’s falling for Alec and being able to relax around him and even allow him to touch her came a little too quickly. We all heal at different rates, but Connie's recovery seemed remarkable - to me. ** Note ** I asked the author about this and she said that in her experience, healing of this type could occur quickly. I enjoyed the read and I hope you will as well. The stories in this series are stand-alone, so you don’t have to have read the other books in the series in order to enjoy this one. I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own..
