Book Description

6 May 2005
Griffin Lockhart holds the key to his family's fate. Since his brother Liam failed to reclaim the priceless heirloom that could save their ancestral Scottish estate, it's now up to Grif to find it -- among the lords and ladies of fashionable London society. Disguised as a Scottish earl, Grif attends the most glittering balls, hunting for the woman who is rumored to possess his family's treasure. Along the way he catches the eye of Anna Addison, a highborn young woman whose sharp tongue and even sharper wits have limited her marital prospects but enable her to detect Grif's deception. Determined to find a husband this Season, Anna draws Grif into a scandalous bargain: She will deliver his precious heirloom -- and keep secret his true identity -- if Grif can teach her how to seduce a man and win his heart. Well aware of what a man wants from a woman, Grif reluctantly instructs her. Soon Anna is besieged by suitors and Grif's exasperation with the troublesome beauty turns into heated desire. With time running out, Grif commits a reckless act in order to claim not only his treasure, but the passionate woman he believes is his and his alone.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Sweet Read! 30 Jan 2006
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Julia London’s “Highland in Disguise” was a sweet read but it got off to a rather slow start. The premise for the story had a lot of potential but in the end it was rather predictable in it’s outcome.
Grif Lockhart is off to London to retrieve the family beastie from the English Lockhart’s. His brother Liam had tried but failed with this quest…well, not failed entirely he did find a loving woman and wee daughter to love. So armed with borrowed funds and a tale to rival that of any storyteller, Grif sets out to find the family heirloom. But, he ends up getting much more then he bargained for. He is about to make a deal with one Anna Addison. His job has just gotten a lot more interesting.
Anna is the middle child and although she finds the Ton boring at times and she does have a tendency to not watch what she says…still, she would like to find a man who she could love. So when handsome Grif Lockhart arrives in London it is not long before she realizes he’s keeping a secret. She will keep his secret and help him find his beastie but he has to teach her how to seduce a man to care for her. It’s not long before Grif is seduced and wants Anna for his own. Will he take a chance or will the real treasure slip away from him?
This was a sweet read. Grif and his family are a perfect dash of color and entertainment to an otherwise standard historical. Grif was a fun protagonist and truly one of the saving graces of this story. Ms. London has created a fun series with the Lockhart Family and I look forward to reading the next installment.

5.0 out of 5 stars A pleasant surprise! 14 Mar 2005
By M. DETWILER - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I hadn't read the previous Highlander book (don't like heroines who have kids, shame on me) so when I picked Highlander in Disguise, I was pleasantly surprised. It was a very fast read. I couldn't put it down. Grif, the hero, is yummy. I loved him. He was the prototypical hero--manly, but not overly so. Anna, the heroine, was good too. I have found that in my favorite romances, the hero is usually the one that makes it a keeper for me. The girl has to be good, too, but it's the guy who decides it. Grif did--big time. He was great. Anna was okay. I liked her, and when she did start to veer off into "I don't think I'm going to like her" territory, London would have her do something that got her back on track for me. I ended up liking her. And the verbal exchanges between Anna and Grif were hilarious. I laughed out loud more than once. The interplay between Grif and his "valet" were enjoyable also. In short, I really liked this book. I know I will be reading it again, especially before the next book in the series comes out. It features Grif's sister and it looks like a good one, too.

4.0 out of 5 stars entertaining Regency romance 25 Jan 2005
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
After Liam Lockhart failed to regain the beastie, he married the woman who stole the valuable artifact back from him (see HIGHLANDER UNBOUND). The quest falls to his younger brother, Griffin. However, Griff lacks funding to spend any time in London even with his using the home of his best friend's grandmother while she vacations in France. He borrows heavily from his neighbor whose usury interest will cripple the lad if he fails to remit within a year to fund his search for an unknown Amelia, who allegedly bought the beastie from Lady Battenkirk who had purchased it from Liam's wife.

Anna Whittington hopes that Drake Lockhart will ask for her hand in marriage, but he seems more interested in her beautiful younger sister. Meanwhile she wonders about this so-called wealthy Scot who asks questions about her cousin, Lady Battenkirk and anyone named Amelia especially since he looks so much like last year's wealthy Scot Laird. Anna investigates and learns that Griff is an impoverished fake. She blackmails him into teaching her how to seduce Drake, but soon desires her mentor instead; he finds the beastie means little now that he is deeply in love with his troublesome student.

This entertaining Regency romance uses a theme that has been employed in many historical romances, yet the talented Julia London makes it feel as if this is the first time that an innocent asks to be trained in seduction graces a tale. The story line is fun as Griff knows from the first moment he meets Anna that her name spells trouble. This charming couple provides a solid gender war tale that readers will appreciate.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very sensual romance with witty dialogue and some laughs 8 Jan 2007
By Elena Blackthorne - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I must admit that I really enjoyed this book, primarily because of the Grif character and his interplay with Anna.

My favorite part of the book was where Grif warns Anna about wearing low cut gowns and says it will prompt a gentleman to have his way with her. He's too clever. When she dismisses that idea, he tells her that some men are very good at giving a woman pleasure without ruining her good name. He also tells her that she will beg him for more. Under the guise of giving her a "lesson" he then proceeds to have his way with her and pleasures her (keeping his trousers buttoned up of course).

There are true fireworks between these two from the start. The relationship grows from intense dislike and irritation, to grudging acceptance to love during Anna's pygmalion-like transformation under Grif's tutelage. Having obtained the beastie she knows Grif seeks, Anna blackmails Grif into tutoring her how to seduce another man whom she wants to marry. Grif finds he has done his job too well, however, as Drake, who had previously ignored Anna, now declares his love. Anna is disappointed in Drake's kiss, which leaves her cold in contrast to Grif's buring hot kisses which melt her.

Anna does eventually beg Grif for "more" all while telling him that she intends to marry Drake if he asks her. Although he hasn't declared his feelings for her, Grif is hurt and incensed, accuses her of using him, and tells her he will not pleasure her like a whore while she marries another man.

2.0 out of 5 stars Long dragged out bore 7 Jun 2007
By Quillen-Gesell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
At first this book really grabbed my attention. I was looking forward to reading it and Grif was, and is still, a great character.

Sadly, this book dragged on far too long for me. Highlander in Disguise is 374 pages. I gave up reading around page 300 when Grif and Anna were still NOT together. Over 300 pages of nothing isn't worth another 74. I can take a guess at what happens anyway. They finally get together. Finally. It is not even worth finishing if it is only 74 pages after a 300 page wait. Even if it's page 301 where they finally get together- too late. Don't care. They get together, kiss, blah blah blah. Not worth it anymore. I don't even care if they got the 'bloody beastie' or not.

I also felt as if Grif deserved a heroine more mature and less shelfish than Anna. She got on my nerves quite a bit.

If you like a book to ruin your expectations and make you go from wonderment to disappointment, then be my guest and read this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Missing Chemistry 9 Oct 2006
By JJC - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This was my first London book and it was a good read. I thought the H/H worked fairly well together. I liked the seduction part - her coming to him for lessons in exchange for the beastie to save his family. But overall there chemistry was lacking. This could have been much better than it was. I felt like I never really got to know the characters. I never felt draw into the story. The whole book felt like it was leading up to something and then there was nothing. This book was not a page turner or a keeper for me but overall it was ok.

I found Griff's and Anna's characters to be a little on the bland side. There seemed to be no spark to either one. And the longing for each other 3/4 of the way through the book I felt was not expressed enough for me to care. I wished London would have delved deeper into her characters to make them more interesting. But overall it was decent.
