My Review of

Tartan Temptation

51fdunh2mfl

Real Men Wear Kilts

by Kayden Claremont

Publisher’s Description:

Financial planner Cora Siegfried has returned to her hometown to settle her late father’s estate. Get in, get out, that’s the plan. When she’s almost run over by a kilt-wearing hottie on a motorcycle, all her well-laid plans go up in smoke, and all she can think about is getting well laid by her childhood crush. But after what she hoped would be a one-night stand, leaving him might not be as easy. Talk about a tartan temptation.

With his throne on the line, Brodie Murdock needs to secure his kingdom by taking a bride. When the only woman he’s ever wanted steps right into his path, he knows the legends are true. She is his destiny. The feisty female isn’t hard to seduce into his bed for the night, but she’s proving difficult to convince they are meant for forever. And then there’s the secret that could destroy any chance of their future—a secret he’s not ready to confess. Not until his stubborn soul mate admits she needs him for more than sex.

My Thoughts:

This is the first book that I have read by this author.

Although I prefer a less erotic, and sex filled story it wasn’t bad. I do feel it would have been better had it been a full length novel rather than this short novella. It would have allowed for more background and character understanding.
We know that our couple have known each other since childhood and glimpse the fact that his grandfather and her grandmother were more than friends to each other.
There was a surprising twist to the story that I would like to have more time devoted to.
I did like the read but found it to be lacking in some of the essential elements. There could have been much more story development if extended into a full length book.
I would give this book 3.25 of 5 stars for storyline and characterization and 4of 5 flames for heat. The sexual scenes were hot even though they were short.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this title via NetGalley to read and review.
This in no way affected my opinion of this title.


The Unwanted Heiress

The Archer Family Regency Romances Book 1

by Amy Corwin

Digital List Price: $3.25

FREE For a Limited Time at Amazon

Publisher’s Description:

51ogvfjwcvlAn American heiress nobody wants; a duke every woman desires; and a murder no one expects.

As a young duke, all Nathaniel wants is to be left alone. So when he meets Charlotte, an outspoken American heiress, he is suspicious of her indifference. Too many women have sought–and failed–to catch him.

However, Charlotte is unimpressed by his title. She has no interest in English dukes. All she wants is to leave dreary England and travel to the sunny sands of Egypt to see the grand pyramids.

Unfortunately, a debutante seeking to entrap Nathaniel gets murdered, and his reputation as a confirmed misogynist makes him a suspect. On impulse, Charlotte comes to his aid, unaware that her actions place her in danger, too.

Neither Charlotte nor the duke know that a highwayman interested in rich heiresses is following Charlotte, and that another debutante lies dead in Nathaniel’s carriage. And unfortunately, the evidence soon complicates Nathaniel’s efforts to prove his innocence and convince Charlotte that he is worthy of her love.

Some nights just don’t go as planned.

Note to Readers: This book was previously published as “I Bid One American”.

She coped with her heartbreak by finishing her doctorate in Celtic Artwork, and now her career is taking off. Except Tavish keeps showing up at her job sites and butting into her business – all the while wearing that stupid sexy kilt.

Almost an Angel

The Regency Rags to Riches Series, Book 3

by Jade Lee

Digital List Price: $2.99

Currently $0.99 For a Limited Time at:

Amazon ~ B&N ~ Google

Publisher’s Description:

51mb4inai-lIn the last ten years, Carolly Hanson has died six times. First in a car crash, then of TB. Beaten, stoned, and shot in the back. The last time, she suffocated from pneumonia.

Now she’s awake, again, and in the arms of James Oscar Henry Northram, Earl of Traynern.

Carolly Hanson must be in training to be an angel. Why else would she keep dying and reappearing in different places and times? Clearly she is to help people, help them find true love, if she is to win her wings.

And the handsome Earl, clearly a stiff-backed, dark-brooding man of means, will be her next victim—er, beneficiary.

James Oscar Henry Northram is fascinated by Carolly’s odd sense of humor, and compelled by her strange forthright manner and complete lack of interest in trapping him into marriage.

He also thinks poor Carolly is a Bedlam escapee and isn’t the least bit interested in the women she keeps pushing in his direction.

Why must Carolly be forced to suffer death only to live again? Could the answer be as close as his embrace?
