The Sinful Scot by Maddison Michaels was a delicious historical romp, with the perfect blend of adventure, mystery, and romance. Set in Scotland in the 1800s, we start with the very unfortunate Duchess Constance Campbell, whose angry and abusive husband is thoroughly unlikeable. Connie finds herself in hot water when she wakes up one morning covered in blood with no memory of the night before. She embarks on a bold quest to clear her name instead of facing the gallows. A strong, gutsy character, Connie leads the action, with her childhood sweetheart Dr Alec McGuiness making a swoon-worthy Scottish hero. The Sinful Scot was released late January by Entangled Publishing, and I can highly recommend it if you’re in the mood for a serve of hot history with a side serve of mystery.
A police prosecutor by day and romance author by night, Maddison Michaels describes herself as a coffee addict, keen baker and bike rider. She’s never short of hobbies, and is learning to play the piano and lockpicking (for research of course!). Her first novel the Devilish Duke won a 2019 RuBY historical fiction award with Romance Writers Australia, her Saints and Scoundrels series is a regular on the Amazon best sellers list, and there’s great news for her fans, with Entangled Publishing recently signing Maddison for another four ‘sexy history with a dash of mystery’ novels.
