Scamp's Lady

Rated 4.79/5 based on 14 reviews
Even if he wasn’t a British officer, Deborah Morgan would detest the arrogant Kit Marshall! Being on opposite sides of a war alone should be enough to keep them at a distance, but injured men, murderers, and a scrappy little dog drive them together, forging unbreakable bonds of the heart.

About Jackie Walton

After growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area and marrying my high school sweetheart, we became what Alvin Toffler called "corporate gypsies." We've lived in a number of states and countries, including Italy, and have visited a lot of places, some of which show up in my stories. I'm a retired high school science teacher with degrees in English and psychology. (Those two and $4 will get you a good cup of coffee!) I've always loved history, though, as you might guess from the last chapter of my books. That's what happens when you mix a teacher with a self-professed history geek. We are once again back in the Bay Area with our long, tall Pole of a dog.

Great read and well researched. Excellent character development. The romance felt genuine and the plot made sense. Setting it near the end of the Revolutionary War added to the tension. All through it, I wondered how they'd deal once the war ended, or if/when something happened to her family.

Being a dog person, I liked that the dog was a part of the story rather than window dressing. I'll agree that the brief scene in the dog's VP didn't work (mostly because it was the only scene from his VP and hadn't been set up) but that didn't stop me from enjoying the book.

Would have liked to see a little more depth from Lady Claudia, but still loved the book and am interested in reading more from Walton.

Review by: Jill Hamilton on April 21, 2013 :
I liked it. It has a good plot and kept me interested. Yes, there is sex in the book, but at least they waited 'til they were married.

I think it could be a great book with a little editing. Punctuation mistakes - missing commas, periods and quotation marks. I'm not a fan of first-person thinking, even in italics, which the author didn't do. Within three sentences the story went from third person to first person and back to third person. It made it a little to follow.

I understand what the author was trying to accomplish, but having a scene from the dog's perspective just didn't work.

Looking forward to more from her.

An excellent read!!! Very good writing, well thought out plot, action to the very end. I really like the characters. It was entertaining, no raunchy sex scenes; I think a mature teen would even enjoy this book. I will probably read more of this author.

Started this book on a whim, new book, new author, and finished it before I gave it a thought. What a pleasant read! Jackie Walton has comfort food in the form of story telling down. Many of the characters seem like someone you've known. I look forward to more from this author.

Scamp's Lady is a riveting novel reminiscent of a Gwen Bristow, with a little added spice. Jackie Walton has created a novel full of history, romance and adventure with rich characters that will wander through your mind long after the lights go out. Scamp's Lady is the perfect book for the beach, after work, Sunday afternoon, or when you're supposed to be doing homework. Her characters are lovable, hate-able, inspiring, and thought provoking. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys romance. You won't be able to put it down!
