Tartan Temptation by Kayden Claremont
Tartan Temptation (Real Men Wear Kilts) - Kayden Claremont

 

syns

 

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 though

 

 

I enjoyed this rather short but steamy book. I enjoyed the charterers and their journey through the book, Though I must say I liked Cora better than Brodie,but we later learn more about him and what he is was hiding and why. While, I was not a huge fan of Brodie, I liked them as a couple, they worked well together and balanced each other out nice. As mentioned we get some rather steamy scenes some nice others while nice a little over the top. Overall it was just the right length for this book that included a supernatural romance, with a couple that knew how to light the pages in fire. Overall I enjoyed this book and recommend it and rate it 3★

Romance Bingo Update #2
The Highlander - Kerrigan Byrne I checked off "man in a kilt" with this one, lots of options should I need to shift for better coverage later. Lots of ppl seem to really like this one. It was OK to me, but not much more. 12. Man in a Kilt - The Highlander / Kerrigan Byrne Everything in this book is incredibly overstated and dramatic, provoking much eye-rolling and laughter at the text on my part. I haven't read many traditional bodice-rippers, but I feel like this embraces much of the hyperbole and drama of one. Best thing about this book is that the atrocities of the first two chapters are largely contained to those two chapters, otherwise I would have likely not bothered to finish this one. This could also potentially fulfill Love is Murder (it comes up), Eyeshadow and Heaving Bosom (at least the Heaving Bosom part), Blown Away (cover art), Rogue (main interest is known as the Demon Highlander, that counts in my book), Wedding Bells (for the ending), and Second Chances (for both of the main characters). 1. Insta-love 2. TSTL 3. "Headless" Woman 4. Love is Murder 5. New Adult 6. Young Adult - Georgia Peaches and Other Forbidden Fruit / Jaye Robin Brown I really liked this one, and I generally have a really low threshold for religion (especially fundamentalist Christianity) in my pleasure reading. I do think it's a really good book for lesbian youth who are struggling to reconcile their sexuality with their faith, but I struggle a bit with quite how liberal the evangelist dad is. 7. Regency Romance 8. Eyeshadow and Heaving Bosom 9. Virgin - Best First Time 10. Gothic Romance 11. Blown Away 12. Man in a Kilt - The Highlander / Kerrigan Byrne Everything in this book is incredibly overstated and dramatic, provoking much eye-rolling and laughter at the text on my part. I haven't read many traditional bodice-rippers, but I feel like this embraces much of the hyperbole and drama of one. Best thing about this book is that the atrocities of the first two chapters are largely contained to those two chapters, otherwise I would have likely not bothered to finish this one. This could also potentially fulfill Love is Murder (it comes up), Eyeshadow and Heaving Bosom (at least the Heaving Bosom part), Blown Away (cover art), Rogue (main interest is known as the Demon Highlander, that counts in my book), Wedding Bells (for the ending), and Second Chances (for both of the main characters). 13. LOVE 14. Rogue 15. Historical Romance 16. Secret Billionaire 17. Twins 18. Fairy Tale Retelling 19. Wedding Bells 20. Second Chances 21. Key to my Heart - Hard Rhythm / Cecilia Tan Going a bit tongue-in-cheek here, but I feel like "Key to my Heart" is appropriate for a BDSM erotic romance. See the link for my full review, pretty hot series, but this is definitely my least favorite addition. All my favorite parts had nothing to do with the relationship or sexy times... and it's an erotic romance novel, so... 22. Pirates Argh 23. Guy/Girl Next Door 24. Interracial Couple 25. Urban Fantasy Romance

oh god
The Highlander - Kerrigan Byrne

i'm hoping everything horrible in the first two chapters is just setting for the rest, b/c honestly i can't stomach a whole book of that.

 

 

 

 

 

 

the very brief context:

kilt-dude's father was a sadistic monster and part of making his sons into "men" involved beating and murdering a prostitute

leading-lady starts out in a mental asylum so bad that it gets raided by the police, fortunately before she's about to be raped by the doctor and an orderly.

A funny choice of kilt
The Highlander - Kerrigan Byrne So, I'm a part of this group called the Hash House Harriers (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hash_House_Harriers). We happen to have two registered tartans... and one of them looks rather familiar... https://sportkilt.com/product/1031/HHH-Hunting-Original-Sport-Kilt.html This will also be my third book for bingo (post for the first two coming up soon, been lazy), looking like either Man in a Kilt, Historical Romance, or Blown Away. Likely will also possibly qualify for some sort of Second Chance, Wedding Bells, Virgin, and maybe something else, so I'll have to figure out where I actually put it.

It Happened in Scotland (Kilts and Quilts #6) by Patience Griffin

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After pulling herself out of a three-year fog of grief over the loss of her husband, Joe, Rachel is bringing their five-year-old daughter to see his hometown of Gandiegow and visit with his grandfather.

 

But Rachel wasn’t planning on running into Joe’s cousin, the man who made her have second thoughts at the altar...
 
Brodie has come home to help his grandfather’s fishing business, but he’d prefer not to see Rachel.

 

Although she did break his heart six years ago, the grip she has on him hasn’t faltered. If they can stop butting heads long enough and learn to overcome the past, they may find new love in the new year.

 

 

 

 

 

I love the heart whole emotional mending and healing process for each stage of the quilting sort of creates a fictitious healing for the reader and its characters. As sad as this book was it also brings a lot of heart and a lot of the finding ways to cope and embrace life once more kind of read.

There's also a deeper love story and sacrifice and hope drawn into the pages as well which is really kind of beautiful. I even love Brodies silliness which helps lift some of the seriousness of the under current story going on.

It Happened in Scotland embraces being true to one self and opening the heart to love. I really enjoyed reading this book. Love it.
