Will Daisy’s long lost love come and rescue her from her predicament or will her season of freedom end with a forced marriage to a stranger? Find out what happens when this Sinful Scottish Laird faces one determined English Lady.
Julia London’s Sinful Scottish Laird hits all the right spots.
Sinful Scottish Laird features fascinating characters, intense sexual tension and one hell of a story. Historicals are not usually my first choice but I simply cannot resist the men of the Highlands. Ms. London does an amazing job of taking the reader into the highlands. The world building in Sinful Scottish Laird is superb. I could picture it all in my mind and I wanted to go and see it for myself. I wouldn’t mind running into a man like Cailean either. While that seems rather unlikely to happen I must live vicariously through Ms. London’s characters.
My heart went out to Daisy and the situation she faces. I could feel her pain and frustration as I sped through the pages. When she lays eyes on Cailean the first time the attraction is powerful. Cailean is dealing with his own inner demons when it comes to trusting women. He is baffled by the boldness Daisy exhibits toward him and does everything he can to ignore her. Their bickering is simply hilarious and adorable. I could not get enough of it. They made me laugh out loud so many times!
Cailean may be sexy as SIN but he melted my heart with his kindness towards Daisy’s son Ellis. I was expecting more intrigue as Captain Robert Spivey entered the picture. I was disappointed a bit but the rest of the novel exceeds expectations making Sinful Scottish Laird a Joyfully Recommended Read for February.
Sinful Scottish Laird is a romance you will not soon forget. This sexy couple will sweep you off your feet and have you racing through the pages to discover if they find their happily ever after. Ms. London gives us a remarkable read with Sinful Scottish Laird. I cannot wait to take my next trip to the Highlands when Cailean’s brother Rabbie discovers love in Hard-Headed Highlander.
