When a Chattan male falls in love, strike his heart with fire from above....
Portia Maclean believes she is beyond love and marriage. Then one moonlit night, while attempting a daring masquerade in a desperate bid to protect her family, she finds herself swept off her feet by a powerful stranger. But what will he do once he discovers she has betrayed him?
Harry Chattan is fighting for his family. For two hundred years, the Chattan men have been destroyed by love...and now he's come to Scotland on the hunt for a witch to break the curse. Instead he finds himself bewitched by Portia. Harry has vowed to fight the demons that torture him.
But will that battle destroy her as well?

I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
At twenty-seven, Portia Maclean has accepted the fact that she's a spinster. Never having fallen in love, and having grown up witness to her parents' strained relationship, she doesn't really feel she's missing out. But she's determined that her sister will be able to marry for love. In spite of their precarious position, they've been able to make it work... until now. When Harry Chattan arrives in their small village, Portia comes up with a plan. Chattan is searching for a witch he thinks may finally relieve his family of the curse that was set upon them generations ago. And Portia just happens to have recently discovered a book of spells. If she plays the situation right, she may be able to take Chattan's reward money and get her family set -- for a little while. But Chattan is not some silly man suffering from crazy superstition, nor is he one to be played for a fool.
THE SCOTTISH WITCH was a perfect sort of pick me up, light read. This is an adorable story and one that I want to see through to the end. I've not yet read book one, though it's not totally necessary to read it prior to SCOTTISH WITCH as LYON'S BRIDE concerns Harry's brother. Their story will come to a conclusion in book three, THE DEVIL'S HEART, which concerns Harry's sister, Margaret.
The Scottish moors, a curse, witches, and all set in the 1800s, this was bound to be fun. And it most definitely was! Throw in a headstrong and stubborn pair of leads and some steamy scenes, and THE SCOTTISH WITCH turns into the perfect read for a cold and dreary evening.
As always Rosalyn Landor was outstanding with the delivery of the story and really brought the story to life.
I need more ears!
I'd been re-listening to my library of romances and was keen to find a new series with Rosalyn Landor as the reader, when I found this series I was thrilled. What a great surprise!
This is the second book in the series and it's fantastic. With witches, a curse, Scotland, and mystery galore, what more could you ask for! And most of all, it had Roz reading it, and I loved every minute.

Enjoyed this book from start to finish. Love how the author used the witches curse and carried it through. Loved it!
Loving my life and hanging out with my four grandchildren!
Made it through this book in one day! It is great second installment of this series! This one is a real can't miss!
