3 1/2 Stars! Started off good, lost its way in the middle, but came back around with some excitement in the end.
Lady Rosalia Armstrong is running from the cruelty of her parents and the arranged marriage that she wants no part of, when she crosses paths with Laird Ciaran MacGregor and his men. They are returning home from the Royal Court in England when they find Rosalia passed out from intense pain from injuries she received at the hands of her parents. T ...more
It's not that this is a bad book, it's that it lacks an unidentifiable something that I cannot describe.Plus after so many romance books this one here is the first I find with an unconsummated relationship! So, where's the love? Sorry, but no, I wasn't convinced.
It was a sad suprise - not to like this book - because I have read other books by Ms Roberts that I really loved. I guess this one proved not all books do the tr ...more
This book was amateurish at best.
This is a extremely typical highland romance with tried plots, only with a rather podgy heroine. I don't know why the heros are always so handsome and the heroines have to be sometimes plain and chubby. I guess it is the female version of the beauty and the beast?
I could have probably overlooked the boring plotline if the relatioship was romantic enough. But the book is also sorely lacking in that departme ...more
RATING: 1.5 DISAPPOINTING HEARTS. :(
Temptation in a Kilt implies to have everything a good Highland warrior novel should have – an interesting blurb, some action, some romance and even some danger, and while these elements are present, their presence is insignificant at best. Sadly, I really couldn’t bring myself to love this book.
It starts off promising enough, and maybe even interesting, but all the hype quickly dies down. The plot is cliche, the romance is cliche and non-existent (no sex sce ...more
There something about a nice, sexy, muscled hunk-in-a-kilt that says relaxation to me. OK, so a nice, sexy, muscled pirate says a similar thing, and occasionally a nice, sexy, muscled ...more
And to be honest I am in no mood to write a review but it was a good highland book. Rosalia is not a badass heroine at all. She is weak and she does cry over everything. Ciaran is a typical highlander. I liked him. Thats all. There isn't anything special about the book but I did enjoy reading it.
I saw the book from Netgalley, requested and been declined by the publisher. Reading all the glowing reviews of this wonderful story make me excited to read it and I pre-ordered from Bookdepository. The book was dispatched before the release date and I’m happy waiting for this.
This book held my attention till the end. Victoria has been placed in my auto-buyer. The story make you feel that you’re part of the family. I laughed, I cried, an ...more
I love myself a great Highland warrior, so I was really excited to get started on this, but sadly, I just couldn’t get into it. After reading through about 40% of it, I finally gave up. This is actually my first DNF, because I’m kind of OCD about finishing a book, but with tons of review books and stressful real life, I just couldn’t make myself continue to read it. Maybe if I had had more time on my hands, I would’ve stuck with it.
This book isn’t bad. It has all the right elements – a stron ...more
A sweet romance, that starts out with a bang, but slows at the middle and an abrupt ending. I really liked the story and the characters and I believe a lot of others will fall for this couple. If you’re looking for a hot steamy romance you won’t find it here, this more on the lines of a clean romance. What you will find is a heroine that is strong spite the fact of what she has to endure all of her life, I felt she truly deserved Larid Ciaran, they makes a sweet couple.
Temptation in a Kilt is the first book in the Bad Boys of the Highland series. This is my first time reading this author and it will de ...more
Second thoughts… hmm.
Final thoughts… Some things need to be worked on but I definitely want to pick up the next book in the series.
Rosalia (mind you, I say this using my Spanish tongue, and I love it), has been mistreated all of her life by her mother who has abused her mentally, verbally, and physically. Her father just sits idly by and lets it happen. Not until Rosalia’s mom wants to marry her off to a very nasty man for mo ...more
Temptation in a Kilt is an incredibly sweet love story. With political intrigue and land conflicts thrown into the mix, this book was fantastic.
Rosalia was an admirable character. Her strength in dealing with her life with her horrible parents was incredible. Her mother is abusive and her father is indifferent. The story really begins when Rosalia gathers up her courage and runs from her parents and the arranged marri ...more
At first this started off as the typical storyline, girls runs away from a horrid family only to be saved by a rugged, sexy Highlander... But once the story unfolds there was so much more to it than that. Our heroine, is smart, courageous, and simply trying to escape her horrid, horrid parents. Her parents are using their daughter to fill their pockets, they are marrying her off to an rich English Lord. Rosalia takes a stand and tells her p ...more
In this one we have poor Rosalia, she does not come from a happy home, and now she must marry some English idiot. She did not see herself as pretty, brave, or anything really. She was beaten down, but she learns her own worth.
Then we have the sexy Highlander she meets. Laird Ciaran McGregor who is trying to hold his household together while feuding with those bloody Campbells (and yes they were not nice at all.). He saves h ...more
I love my heroes to be honorable, yet entertaining and not boring, and that’s exactly who I got in Laird Ciaran MacGregor.
He’s had enough of the Royal Court and is ready to return to his home in Scotland and that’s where the story takes off, as he stumbles onto Rosalia who is on the run.
The heroine is someone very likabl ...more
