Overall rating -- 3.33 stars

Individual short story ratings:
The Wanderer -- 4 stars
The Warrior -- 3.5 stars
The Wayfarer -- 2.5 stars

I enjoyed the first two stories enough to wish they were full-length books; however, I found the last story boring and devoid of much passion (or at least not when compared to the first two).

Three short stories in one. Scottish brothers meet their American soul mates. Fun, quick reads. Is there really anything better than a hot Scot in a kilt?

There are some obvious disadvantages to anthologies, especially in a category romance. One, the word count is so limited that penning a believable romance is next to impossible. Two, you get less time to connect with the characters. And three, did I mention the believability factor?

But on the flipside, there are some definite perks: hardly any angst or conflicts to muck-up the romance, and there's always the love-at-first-sight bonus! Sigh. And, as is the case with this book, what woman wouldn't

3 short stories involving 3 brothers who are not interested in running the family business. Their sister has been practically running the business for years, but their father wants one of his sons at the helm.

Each story emphasizes each brothers interest and their preferred plan for their futures.
Who doesn't like hot Scottish men?
Enjoyed each story. Of course, all three brothers falling in love close to the same time, as well as falling in love within a day of meeting their heroines, was a little

This is a fun, sexy set of three novellas set in Scotland. Although each one is short, the author does a fantastic job of quickly raising the emotional stakes and ensuring you get that romantic payoff in the end.

It was a quick, enjoyable read, and though my own impression was colored by my personal distaste for Scotland (so cold and windy - I hope these American heroines know what they're getting into!), anyone who loves a bit of brogue will love this book.

In my opinion this was not one of Ms Nelson's better books. It seemed rushed and choppy. I would have liked it better if she had made this a four book series. She should have spent an equal amount of time on all four siblings

Ewan's story was hilarious. I liked Cam's story the best. Alec's story was okay. Cam's story was the only one that kept this book from being a wall banger.

I found all three short stories really enjoyable. I think I liked Alec's story the best, but they were all good. My only negative is that the novellas were so short that they seemed to end rather abruptly. I would have loved a longer story about each brother.

I really enjoyed the setting of this romance anthology - Scotland! It's a very sexy read, and the stories are all connected. I found this book to be very satisfying. I am not usually a fan of anthologies, but I loved this one.

Once I read the first of the three stories, it felt as though the names of the characters were pretty much the only thing that changed. Descriptions were virtually repeated in the other stories. Very disappointed.
