Publisher's Summary

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?

Bewitchingly Good

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.

Conclusion is in the third book, keep reading!

The series is written well, the narrator is one of my personal favorites and, the characters are great. I appreciated the detail however, in some parts I felt the story lingered a bit. which, was probably my fault since, patience isn’t always my strong point. I enjoyed listening to the story and, as always to Rosalyn Landor. A big 5 stars ladies!

Gorgeous! Loved the whole series!

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.

Interesting plot, not much romance

The overall plot of this trilogy, along with Rosalyn Landor's narration, is the reason I enjoy this series. The actual 'romance' of the first book was ok but for this second entry in the series I found myself rolling my eyes at the more 'romantic' or sexually charged scenes. It all just falls a bit flat and sounds very formulaic; the characters are believable up until the moment they have to interact with each other in a romantic or sexual manner, at which point it starts to feel like the interactions of cardboard cut-outs. Without wanting to give away spoilers, there are some hints that there are plot reasons as to why this happens but these hints are quite weak and it can't really excuse the lack of believability in the writing. Having said all that, the writer is definitely doing something right as I am still interested enough to buy the final book to find out what happens.
