Romancing Canada's Indigenous People


Ransom’s Bond by Kat Duncan

I popped Ransom’s Bond by Kat Duncan into my Sony a couple of days ago.  Y’know, I never read a romatic suspense before, but I do love action movies with a slice of romance, so this is right up my alley.

What can I say so far now that I’m on page forty-three?  Kat doesn’t waste any time hauling you into the action.  Not that the novel is too fast-paced.  She just has this way I slipping you into the story without you even noticing.  The first page, we meet the hero and heroine–he’s in prison and she’s his barrister!  The small descriptions Kat uses really opens this story into a 3D picture.  The bonus?  Setting.  Edinburgh, Scotland.  I love when a story takes place in beautiful countries I’ve never been to before.

Here’s the blurb:  Arliss MacDonald is the newest con-man to arrive in the Edinburgh financial district. The inheritance he plans to steal from Marinel Bethune is locked in a land war between two powerful family corporations, the Campbells and the MacLeans. Before Mari will let Arliss steal her fortune, or her heart, she has a few old scores to settle. And Arliss is the perfect man for the job.

  1. I’ve always read lots of genres. I get bored with the same one all the time! But I picked up a historical to read last night 🙂
    Lately my reading time seems to have been confined to ten minutes before I go to sleep. I think I work longer hours now than I ever did when I left the house to work!

    BTW – if you like historicals have you tried Deanna Raybourne’s historical series! lady Julia Grey. It’s a mystery but there’s quite a bit of romance too. I’m a big fan of this series.


    1. That sounds right up my alley. I love mysteries with a slice of romance–especially the Murdoch Mysteries books and TV show. I’ll be sure to check her out for my next read.


  2. The cover is very different. It certainly caught my attention. you’ve never read a rom suspense before? You’re in for a treat.

    I’m reading an ARC – Stripped by Tori St Claire, which I need to review before she visits my blog early next year. Reading time seems in short supply at present.


    1. I’m really enjoying it. I’m a historical reader, but lately I’ve been trying to shift around to the other sub-genres. Reading time is difficult to find. I’m one of those who reads while eating my lunch and dinner LOL.
