Temptation in a Kilt: Bad Boys of the Highlands, Book 1

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.

    Story
    "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!!).

    "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.

    Story
    "More twists and turns than a Highland road"

    Nice story line filled with several plot twists that take the reader out of the expected and into a genuine story. I wanted a light read that was simple and uncomplicated since my life of late has been very complicated. I thought this might be the book for that and while I was wrong I wasn't disappointed.

    All the characters are well flushed out and very human. The storyline flows very nicely and is filled with romance and drama. Even though there were no big sex scenes it was still a good solid story. Definitely worth a credit.

    Elizabeth Wiley is an excellent narrator. Her cadence and speech patterns are spot on and her voices are rich and varied making each character identifiable. I wish she could narrate more romances.

    I never read the print

    Lady Rosalia because she is a strong character


    What does Elizabeth Wiley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The excitement of being there

    Not really although I did enjoy it and began to read To Wed a Wicked Highlander immediately after I finished


    Any additional comments?

    I wish the third book X Marks the Scot was in audio, I would love to read it

    Story
    "Ahh, A Fine Scottish Romance in the Highlands!"
    What made the experience of listening to Temptation in a Kilt the most enjoyable?

    The different character brogues throughout the book. Elizabeth Wiley did an excellent job.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Temptation in a Kilt?

    Rosalia's description to Ciaran of her painful life with her parents over the years. Sad!


    What does Elizabeth Wiley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her Scottish brogue is wonderful. Her portrayal of all the characters is truly amazing.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Romance in the Highlands


    Any additional comments?

    I am eagerly awaiting the second book featuring Declan to come out in audio form. His character was an added bonus in this book.
