Sinful Scottish Laird
Highland Grooms #2
by Julia London
Publisher ~ Harlequin (US & Canada)
Genres ~ Historical Romance
A young widow puts her sexy suitors to the test in New York Times bestselling author Julia London's scintillating return to the idyllic Scottish Highlands.
Widowed and forced to remarry in three years' time or forfeit her son's inheritance, Daisy Bristol, Lady Chatwick, has plenty of suitors vying for her hand and her fortune. But a letter from a long-lost love sends Daisy and her young son to her Scottish Highland estate to buy time for his return. Along the way she encounters the powerful Cailean Mackenzie, laird of Arrandale and a notorious smuggler, and she is utterly though unwillingly bewitched.
Cailean has no use for any Sassenach in his glen. But Daisy's brazen, flirtatious nature and alluring beauty intrigue him. When her first love appears unexpectedly at her estate, Cailean knows that a passionate woman like Daisy cannot marry this man. And to prevent the union, Cailean must put his own life at risk to win her heart.
I do love a resourceful free spirited woman and Daisy fills that position to a "T". Her sensual personality drew me into the plot as I watched her try to work her charms on Cailean. It was smile worthy, reading different scenes with various interactions between the two of them. Furthermore I loved her mother son relationship which was the main theme of this book.
This book was an enjoyable read with the back and forth bantering between Daisy and the very handsome Cailean. There were times I laughed and times I got so angry with Cailean I wanted to shake him but I always loved Daisy and admired her spirit. Cailean on the other hand was a sexy standoffish man and it took me a while to warm up to him but once I did I kept rooting for him to open up and realize Daisy's worth.
The pace of this book is steady and descriptions were very vivid drawing the reader into the storyline. My only thought is that at times it felt too simplistic to me but those times were few and my overall impression is that this is a very pleasant read and I look forward to reading more books from this author.
For this reason, I give it 4 STARS.
