Mad for the Plaid (Oxenburg Princes #3)
Pocket Books / August 30, 2016 / $7.99 print, $6.99 digital
The Princes of Oxenburg series lends a fun twist to those who love Scottish historical romance because our heroes are none other than Russian princes. Mad for the Plaid is all about the witty exchanges. The banter between these two starts from page one in their writing correspondence and continues, well, I’d like to believe it continues until they both die together as a very old couple.
Prince Nikolai Romanovin of Oxenburg is not all that he seems. In fact, he’s a chameleon. He doesn’t mind his reputation—he has many—because it provides him with information that only serves to boost his political career and protect his people. So when his grandmother, the Dowager Countess Cromartie is abducted, trusting the Lady Ailsa Mackenzie of Castle Leod to find her is not an option.
Lady Ailsa is not a wallowing miss. The Dowager Countess was under her protection and so she will stop at nothing to bring her back to safety. What she does not expect is to have the Prince himself show up in disguise and accompany her. But she can’t deny her attraction to this brooding man with a reputation. One who is a rake of the highest order. But it is her that makes the first move, and for this, I love our heroine. Especially as she continues to express her independence and strength, despite a Prince who may not possess as many feminist ideals. At least not at first.
