She’s on her way to Safety

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 the hardships and discomfort, if only she can become master of her own life. Laird Ciaran MacGregor, however, is completely beyond her control…

He Redefines Dangerous…

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.


Review:  Temptation in a Kilt makes me remember why I love highland men.

Rosalia is a woman who has lived through a lot in her one and twenty years. She has lived through the emotional and physical abuse of her parents. She never seems to do anything right. Her parents set her up to marry a vial man. She finally stands up for herself and gets the beating of her life.

Ciaran is Laird and he was sent by the king to come to court. He can’t wait to get back to the highlands where he belongs. He is on his way back when he sees what he thinks is a lad on the ground past out. He realizes his mistake and that’s when he meets Rosalia.

Reading this made me remember why I love highlander books. I got such a wonderful feeling reading this and I felt like I had come home. I felt so sorry for Rosalia knowing all the pain and suffering that she had went through. You wanted everything to turn out right for her. You just knew that she was destined to find the man that would take care of her for the rest of her days. She always saw the good in people no matter what they did.

Ciaran is the man of every woman’s fantasies. He has a great personality and wants to take care of you. He is very muscular and in great shape; just thinking of him makes me want to faint. I just wished he would get over the vow that he made to his father when he died. I wanted to say “just forget your brother he’s an adult now and can take care of himself. Marry her already you big dope, you know you love her.”

Sometimes I wondered why it takes some tragedy to open their eyes and realize that they love the other. But hey they are the books that I love to read.

I really enjoyed Temptation in a Kilt. The author did a wonderful job with her storyline and brought out the best of her characters. Which some of them I just wanted to hate. I have to have that in every story — the good and the bad.

The love that Rosalia and Ciaran had just made my heart melt and sent me to my own fantasy world. So I guess you can tell that I will forever have the story and the characters in my heart.

I recommend this story to everyone. When you read this book you realize no matter how bad your life is that something good has to come out of it. Hopefully when you reach the end of the rainbow there will be your one true love.
