This was a decent story. I liked the heroine Lillian, she had some spunk. I liked Alec too, he was a big sexy brute. LOL These two had some good chemistry together. There is a nicely written sex scene so it's not rated G.
The story line and plot was good. Except I didn't care too much for Alec's insecurities. I kind of thought that was lame. And the so called "secret" was pretty lame. Glad it was not the focus of the story. Just his excuse for not being good enough. That story has been told a thousand times. So that part was a bit annoying.
There was lots of dialogue through out the entire book which was great. I love a couple of the secondary characters like Celeste, I am looking forward to her book. There was a couple of characters that popped up from the Rules of Scoundrels series so that was fun.
As for the narration. Hmmm not a favorite of Justine Eyre for sure. I didn't care for the scottish accent she used for Alec at all. Not good. Also the breathy reading sometimes bugs.. The female characters are done well though. Just not a big big fan of JE voice.

I am a serious Sarah MacLean fan, enjoying all of her historicals. Unfortunately, the narrator is so painful it is hard to get through. I was hoping the new series would have a new voice but alas, the scratchy, overly breathless, faux British accent, and PAINFUL Scottish accent overshadowed a decent story. I felt that the female character was brash and impertinent to an unrealistic level to the person who has been financing her life for the better part of a decade sight unseen. I feel the male lead, referred to as a brute so often one could form a drinking game around the moniker, was too easily pushed over by a total brat who he has known less than a week.
To imagine this Scot would go from his rugged lifestyle of hounds and Highlands to a distinguished, patient and empathetic guardian in less than 2 chapters is just not plausible.
I pray she moves to a new narrator soon, and will continue to try new books. Just not my favorite.

The story was funny, I laughed a lot, but the narrator was diabolical. I have like some of Justine's narration in the past but she cannot do a Scottish accent - it sounded like bad Irish a majority of the time. I would advise having someone who can do read with an accent it would improve the whole experience.
Very enjoyable, great narration as usual by Justine Eyre. I look forward to the next book
Where does A Scot in the Dark rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
One of the best. What a good tale...held my interest totally and also made me laugh. Characters were great.
What did you like best about this story?
The two main characters were quite funny...good to have a smile and a laugh.
Have you listened to any of Justine Eyre’s other performances? How does this one compare?
Yes I have. She is always good. This could be one of her best. I do enjoy her characterisation, and her Scottish accent is pretty good which makes Alec funnier (and sexier). She is excellent.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
Just fabulous...where is Book 3? 😳
