Book Review: Sinful Scottish Laird

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.

When I am in the mood for a historical romance, Julia London is one of my go to authors.  She always has feisty heroines and drool-worthy heroes.   That being said, SINFUL SCOTTISH LAIRDS was not one of my favorites.  Oh the heroine, Daisy, was feisty, out spoken and willing to take risks to get what she wanted.  Cailean was definitely worth drooling over.  My issue was the dialogue.  It felt that the Scottish accent was forced in ways that it didn't want to go.  That pulled me out of the story a couple times.

Regardless of that issue, I do recommend this book because I did enjoy it for the most part and I loved being able to check back on characters that we met in the first book, Wild Wicked Scot.  If you enjoy reading historical romance than be sure to check out this book and this series.  

*** I received this book at no charge from NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.  All opinions expressed within are my own.
