Product Description

England 1814: Reticent Scottish Lord pursues Mouthy, Independent, American Woman… She is an outspoken American orphan with a questionable past and a dubious purpose. He is a man of few words on the lookout for a traitor. How could they NOT get along?

Mrs. Amelia Chase is a highly-opinionated, 23-year-old woman from America on the run from her past with a penchant for self-preservation and a healthy love for Shakespearean insults. Much to a certain Scotsman’s dismay:

She isn’t:

* Quiet – not with her tendency to talk to everyone about anything…
* Demure – highly overrated if one cannot wear red and show off one’s curves…
* Equine-savvy – she once fled some currish, toad-spotted, coxcombs – er, villains – in a stolen carriage at a pace slower than a meandering walk. Oh, and mistook a common mule for a thoroughbred. But other than that…

And she is:

* Brave – Smart, Loyal, Witty. Er, charming. Plus, Modest, Lonely, Secretive – Um, forget that last part…
* And In love – with a distrustful Highlander of all things…

Lord Alaistair MacLeod is an agent for the Crown and a man with secrets. He doesn’t speak of them, he doesn’t dwell on them, and he certainly doesn’t let them define his future. Much. One thing is for certain, he definitely doesn’t share his confidences with a peery, outspoken American woman who is obviously trouble, acts highly suspicious, and is far too nosy for her own good… No matter:

He is always:

* Focused – men who cannot stay to task are foolish…
* Pointed and Reserved – enough said…

And he isn’t:

* Cheeky – like a certain American firebrand…
* Led by his… ahem…even when following on the heels of a curvy, red-wearing… ahem
* Or In love… especially not with a Troublesome, Meddlesome, so-called Independent American Woman…

Can he trust enough to embrace such an enigmatic woman? Can she awaken the passions of such an intensely private man?

5.0 out of 5 stars I have been eagerly anticipating What the Scot Hears and it did not disappoint! In WTSH 26 April 2017
By Jessica - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Since reading (and loving!) What the Duke Wants and What the Marquess Sees, I have been eagerly anticipating What the Scot Hears and it did not disappoint! In WTSH, Amy Quinton picks up the thread of the covert resistance to the Society for the Purification of England and weaves it into a tapestry larger and much more complicated than it first appeared.

Stonebridge, Dansbury, Grace, and Beatryce are all back (just because you're married doesn't mean you can't save the country, FYI), Kelly may or may not be a traitor and it may or may not matter...the conflict of loyalty to their friend vs loyalty to the Crown adds another source of tension than builds to an explosive finish.

In the middle of this story is MacLeod and Amelia Chase, manipulated from the outside by a mysterious informant known only by his name (Spyder) and his accent (Welsh and inherently super hot, obv). MacLeod is no-nonsense, short-tempered, and needs a nosy American like he needs a hole in the head, but as their paths keep crossing and it appears Amelia may be a threat to those he holds dear, the task of figuring her out falls into his lap. Unfortunately for MacLeod, figuring out Amelia is not as easy as it would seem. Her open, perpetually helpful nature may present a heroine on the naive side, but Amelia is anything but. She's clever, resourceful, and her secret agendas have secret agendas. As far as they know, they are working at cross-purposes, and the heat generated by this lust-riddled tension is enough to set a barn on fire.

The plot really kept me guessing right up until the end, and the tension was balanced nicely by snappy dialogue, lovely descriptions, and really consistent humor. The humor isn't the only consistent aspect, however -- the secrets build as the book progresses, and there are plenty of surprises coming out of left field right up until the end. The love story concludes believably for the characters, but the plot of the series isn't over yet...and I can't wait to see where it goes next.

4.5 stars

I really enjoyed this book, it had the perfect blend of humor, intrigue, secrets, sexual tension and action.

Amelia was a really great character, she has not had an easy life and has done what she had to do to survive. She leaves America and goes to England to find the Marquess of Dansbury, because she wants to inform him that she is his long lost sister and well, she really doesn't have any other choice, she had to leave. She is a complex character, she is amusing, talkative, smart, wily and kind hearted. If I had to sum her up in one word I would say she is intrepid.

Alistair MacLeod is a spy for the crown, he has known much heartache and betrayal in his life and therefore doesn't trust easy or often. When he first sees Amelia, he is captivated and immediately on guard - he knows one thing for sure - this woman is trouble. MacLeod is an interesting character, he is a man of few words, gruff, stoic and seemingly unemotional - but as they say, still waters run deep and Alistair MacLeod definitely runs deep. He does not want to want Amelia, he does not want to find her amusing, he does not want to get to know her better and he definitely does not want to love her!

On the surface, these two seem like oil and water, but in reality they are more alike than they are not. Their banter is laugh out loud funny and their interactions are filled with longing and sexual tension - the reader knows that these two are "meant to be" but neither of them can seem to let go of their secrets or their mistrust long enough to make the connection.

This book has a lot going on, but somehow it all works without overwhelming the love story between Amelia and Alistair.

I will be honest, before she contacted me and asked if I would review her book, I had never heard of Amy Quinton - but I will tell you this - Now that I have read one of her books, I won't forget her! This book is not perfect, there are some typos, some incorrect use of honorific titles and some modern phrasing - but what is right about the book far outweighs what is wrong. This is definitely an author to watch out for - she knows how to tell a story! This book was paced well, had a lot of intrigue, steamy love scenes, laugh out loud moments, great secondary characters and a really wonderful ending. I would highly recommend this book and look forward not only to the next book, but going back and reading the previous books.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rollicking good yarn. 4.5 stars 26 April 2017
By Jude Knight - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Amy Quinton has produced another fun romp in her Agents of Change series. MacLeod, the Scot of the title is superb: gloomy, pessimistic, suspicious, and totally befuddled by the brash American woman who keeps stumbling across his work as a spy for the British Crown.
For all her cheerful outgoing personality, Amelia hides secrets of her own, not least her identity and her background.
Read this book to discover how this mismatched pair discover they are perfect for one another, while negotiating people determined to kill them and MacLeod's reaction to Amelia's lies. Better still, read the series. The other couples already matched are in this novel, and it was fun to see them again. I very much enjoyed What the Duke Wants, and am now itching to read What the Marquis Sees, which I've skipped. See? The books can be read independently and out of order, but I want to see how Beatrice won her man. I've a suspicion she may be my favourite of the three heroines so far.
This would be a five-star book for me if I'd had more of a sense we were in 1814. The voice is very modern, and there's little period detail. But still a rollicking good yarn, and I'm looking forward to the rest of the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Historical!! 26 April 2017
By Romazing Reader - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I really enjoyed this secretive, sexy Scot! It just oozes so much mystery and intrigue! Lots of witty banter, mysterious meetings, secret letters, two faced traitors and unexpected events, keeps this story fast-paced and fascinating. So many players in this game of espionage, and one enticing game of cat and mouse; Alaistair MacLeod has met his matchin the adorable distraction called Amelia Chase, she plays the spy game very well. I really liked the inconvenient teasing and unavoidable flirtation they have with each other! If you love historical romances loaded in mystery and sprinkled with sweet romance, this is a must read for you! ***I voluntarily read this ARC for an honest review***
4.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Read 6 May 2017
By Carol Roddy - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Laird Alistair McLeod is a morose Scot with reasons to be laconic, withdrawn, and distrustful. His reasons will break your heart. Amelia Chase is an outgoing, socially adept grifter who never met a person she couldn't charm. He knows she isn't what she seems and doesn't believe much she says. She knows he isn't as heartless as he likes to appear.

Sparks fly from the moment they meet and they don't stop. These two challenge, out maneuver, and chase with one another from one end of England to the other and into a crumbling castle in Scotland as well. Along the way they flirt, dance around unbidden attraction, and face up to desire. The banter and teasing never lets up. Neither does the magnetism pulling them together.

If you read the authors amusing blurb you've heard the tone of this book. Fast paced throughout, readers don't have much time to think about the rather undeveloped and occasionally illogical suspense plot, or worry about the fine points of historical authenticity. It doesn't matter. This book is about McLeod and Mel
