Publisher's Summary

It's a sign of Lady Rosalia Armstrong's desperation that she's seeking refuge in a place as rugged and challenging as the Scottish Highlands. She doesn't care about hardship and discomfort, if only she can become master of her own life. Laird Ciaran MacGregor, however, is completely beyond her control....
Ciaran MacGregor knows it's perilous to get embroiled with a fiery Lowland lass, especially one as headstrong as Rosalia. Having made a rash promise to escort her all the way to Glengarry, now he's stuck with her, even though she challenges his legendary prowess at every opportunity. When temptation reaches its peak, he'll be ready to show her who he really is...on and off the battlefield.

Kilt was enough to entice me to read this book

I just love those highlanders with their kilts. This laird is not quite as head strong as some others I have read about but still strong and powerful. I only wish there was more explanation put in as to what he falls in love with. Yes he does say what he loves about her but based on how the story actually unravels, all I could take away was his strong sexual need that drew him to her. Overall I give it a four. Still well worth a credit.

OK I WAS TEMPTED...BUT YOU HAD ME AT THE WORD KILT

Laird Ciaran MacGregor is a handsome sexy Alpha Highland Warrior who's happiest either wielding his sword or bedding his Leman but unlike the 'Bad Boys' title Ciaran is actually a truly thoughtful likeable Laird, kind, caring, attentive, honourable, tender and a role model to all. Okay okay I suppose I'll have to comment on the plot too if I must but trust me he's the kinda guy you'll want to day-dream about.

You get caught-up in the drama as it unfolds beginning with Lady Rosalia's first memorable sight of Ciaran at Court then you become emotionally involved in her utter desperation as she has to escape not only the cruelty, hatred and hardships dished out by her parents, but also the arranged marriage to a dislikable Englishman. She isn't your usual heroine type as she's slighlty chubby, not beautiful and has quite low self-esteem however the lucky girl falls into the hands of Ciaran and his men and things begin to look up as he promises to take her to her Grandmother's home where she seeks refuge in the Highlands but she must first stay at his home (huh what a hardship) because of the weather (yeah right).

Of course, along the way there's attraction and temptation but Ciaran is sooo honourable he fights his feelings.... that is until he gets home to his Castle where the attraction and sexual chemistry evolves and gets even more intense. However, the road ahead for the H/H isn't smooth as there's an old vow, a scorned woman brings problems and there's kidnapping, betrayal, hurt, family conflict, revenge, and fighting with the 'bloody' Campbells.

Worth a credit? There's steady action, a sweet romance, humor, intrigue, adventure, passion (a bit of foreplay) with the H/H respecting each other, changing for one another and finally strengthening their feelings - all this coupled with lots of likeable secondary characters - so what's not to like? Yes it was well worth the credit and I'm looking forward to Bad Boy Declan's story next (now he really is a Bad Boy!!).
