This third installment of Amy Quinton's 'Agents of Change' series introduces us to the delightfully unpredictable American, Amelia Chase who may or may not be married, who may or may not be a spy, and who may or may not be the Marquess of Dansbury's sister! What she is however, is determined, charming, a friend to all she meets (particularly those in need) and a pain in the you-know-what to a certain taciturn, and perpetually morose Alaistair MacLeod, the Scot of the title.
Amelia's claim of being Dansbury's sister arouses MacLeod's suspicions, especially when it becomes apparent she isn't quite as forthcoming as he would like, and has an agenda of her own. Their clash of personalities is delightful (he doesn't think 'obey' is in her vocabulary while she thinks he's over-bearing and bossy) and I particularly adored the letters being left as they chased each other around the countryside. The only thing funnier is the names of the inns and pubs the author comes up with! Still it soon becomes obvious that much more than suspicion is being aroused in the sullen Scot. And he's not the only one. Though she may chafe at his over-protective attitude, Amelia is secretly enthralled to realize he cares about her, and will do whatever is necessary to ensure her safety. No matter how uncooperative she is.
Clearly this is a case of opposites attract. Amelia and MacLeod are destined to come together, despite both of them being victims of a misplaced trust that has extracted a high price from each of them. When the inevitable happens I couldn't imagine either of them being with anyone else. As with her previous two novels, Amy Quinton's characters are never quite what they seem, and this story does not disappoint. If you're looking for some escapism that is fast-paced, and full of surprises, I highly recommend 'What a Scot Hears.' I can't wait to read the next installment of the series.
