Book Review: Devil in Tartan

Peril and passion on enemy seas…

Lottie Livingstone bears the weight of an island on her shoulders. Under threat of losing their home, she and her clan take to the seas to sell a shipload of illegal whiskey. When an attack leaves them vulnerable, she transforms from a maiden daughter to a clever warrior. For survival, she orchestrates the siege of a rival’s ship and now holds the devilish Scottish captain Aulay Mackenzie under her command.

Tied, captive and forced to watch a stunning siren commandeer the Mackenzie ship, Aulay burns with the desire to seize control—of the ship and Lottie. He has resigned himself to a life of solitude on the open seas, but her beauty tantalizes him like nothing has before. As authorities and enemies close in, he is torn between surrendering her to justice and defending her from assailants. He’ll lose her forever, unless he’s willing to sacrifice the unimaginable…

Another winner for Julia London!  This is one author that has never failed to sweep me away with her men in kilts and the women who catch their attention with their strength and uniqueness.  And did I mention kilts?

I thought that Lottie was fascinating.  She would be a woman that I would love to be friends with.  She is caring, willing to do what is needed to protect and nurture her family and clan including becoming a pirate and the one that everyone turns to for answers.  And some of those questions lead to intriguing circumstances.   

I really felt for Auley.  He had decided on a path and was completely derailed by Lottie and the Livingstones.  He really had to look deep within himself to find answers to some of those intriguing circumstances.

I really enjoyed DEVIL IN TARTAN.  Ms. London brings the characters and the era to life through her words.  It is a wonderful way to step back into Scotland and meet some hot, and some not so hot, men in kilts.  The perfect way to wile away a rainy spring afternoon.
