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.
Sinful Scottish Laird is the second book in the Highland Grooms series. One of the things that I didn't expect is that it takes place more than thirty years after the events of Wild Wicked Scot. Cailean is the first born of the main characters of the first book. This jump in time threw me off at first, but didn't take place from my enjoyment of the story. In fact, I liked this one much more that the first book.
The characters in the book were wonderful. I loved watching Cailean and Daisy fall for each other. Their banter was a lot of fun and really added to the formation of their friendship. I also really loved the scenes with Cailean and Ellis, Daisy's son. Reading about a big brawny Scotsman interact with a small child always hits me right in the heart.
I do recommend this one. It's a quick read because it sucks you right into the story and makes you want to say up late into the night to see if they get their HEA!
