A young widow puts her sexy suitors to the test in New York Times bestselling author Julia London's scintillating return to the idyllic Scottish Highlands.
Widowed and forced to remarry in three years' time or forfeit her son's inheritance, Daisy Bristol, Lady Chatwick, has plenty of suitors vying for her hand…and her fortune. But a letter from a long-lost love sends Daisy and her young son to her Scottish Highland estate to buy time for his return. Along the way she encounters the powerful Cailean Mackenzie, laird of Arrandale and a notorious smuggler, and she is utterly—though unwillingly—bewitched.
Cailean has no use for any Sassenach in his glen. But Daisy's brazen, flirtatious nature and alluring beauty intrigue him. When her first love appears unexpectedly at her estate, Cailean knows that a passionate woman like Daisy cannot marry this man. And to prevent the union, Cailean must put his own life at risk to win her heart.
Well, I wasn't sure if I should admit this because it makes me look a little bit like a dork, but oh well, it worked out quite nicely, so I will. My confession is that after I read Julia Quinn's Because of Miss Bridgerton and loved it, I went looking for more of her books - only I had a total brain fart and I looked for Julia London instead. I might have come by Sinful Scottish Laird and Ms. London by mistake, but it was without a doubt the best case of mistaken identity I've experienced! I absolutely loved Sinful Scottish Laird, it was amazing!
Daisy is so fun! She's playful and merry and teasing. She almost always has a smile on her face and a laugh just waiting to be let out. That's not to say that Daisy doesn't have a serious side to her because she does. She is passionate, strong, and she's willing to do whatever to make the best life for her son even if that means she can't have what she wants. Daisy is a lovely, lovely heroine and I positively loved, loved, loved her!
Cailean amused me greatly at the beginning of the book because he was trying to deny his attraction to Daisy and trying to resist her charms. He was so serious and so no-nonsense, it was fun to watch Daisy tease him. There is more to Cailen than that stuffy attitude though. He can be incredibly sweet at times, playful at some, and utterly heart melting at others. Cailean is wonderful and he complete captured my heart!
Sinful Scottish Laird was sexy and fun, it made me laugh and smile so much. It made my heart ache and made me want to cry a little bit, it made me angry and want to yell sometimes too. Sinful Scottish Laird was beautiful, entertaining, heartwarming, and marvelous. I can't wait to read the next book in the series and just more of Ms. London in general!
Sinful Scottish Laird is the second book in the Highland Grooms series but you can read it as a standalone, it's told from Cailean and Daisy's POV, and yes, they do get their happily-ever-after!
