Logan Murdoch hates complications. All he wants to do is work in his lab and create products to help vampires blend into mortal society. But when his mother begs him to get her painting back from the museum, he discovers a very attractive complication in the form of curator Sydney Worth.

Museum curator Sydney Worth has a crush on a man in a 300 year old painting. Everything about the man in the painting appeals to her feminine side and she can't help but daydream about him a little. What she doesn't expect is for the spitting image of the man to appear in the flesh. She's so caught off guard that she literally falls on the poor man and well, her embarrassment doesn't end there I'm afraid but you'll have to read the book to find out more.

This is an original review from I personally purchased this title.

The Hot Scot by Kate Eden is a lighthearted and fun paranormal romance. This new series – The Murdoch Vampires – started off with great clarity. The world rules were not complicated and Eden did a nice job introducing us into the setting. The chemistry between Sydney and Logan bright enough to light the pages.

It was nice to know the reasoning behind Sydney’s reluctance to be wooed and resistance to vario

Wonderful vampire romance in the style of Lynsay Sands - that is, more humor and nice vampires rather than dark, brooding and action packed. These vampires drink blood from bags and take supplements so they can go out in the sun and fit in with humans, but still have the traits we all know and love about vampires, super strength, mind reading power, immortality, etc. I liked the way Sydney becomes involved with Logan, by encountering him in his search for his missing painting at the museum where ...more

Full of cliches

The first ten pages were great, some of the best starts to a novel that I've read. Unfortunately, it was downhill from there. With a heavy borrowing from the tv series True Blood, some clunky writing, and some desperately needed proofreading, this book was such a disappointment.😤
Meagan (FranticVampireReads)
I have decided that this year when I'm reading a book that I don't like or that I hate, I'm not going to force myself to finish it. This is the first casualty of my new reading rule. I hate this book. It's a poorly executed excuse for a romance novel. The story was very two-dimensional, not a whole lot of depth to it. With characters as shallow as this, it's no wonder the dialogue was lacking in personality. This whole book was just boring and uninteresting. I give this book half of a star. ...more

May contain vague spoilers.

Logan Murdoch is a bit of a reclusive, egg-head vampire. He spends most of his time working to create a synthetic food source and supplements for his race. His meddling mother sent him on a mission to retrieve a three century old painting of his father from the museum. The task is easier said than done, when Logan has to enlist the help of a very attractive curator to prove the painting belongs to his family. His mind control doesn't work on her, so he has to all

Sydney has the hots for a man in a painting dubbed The Hot Scot, imagine her surprise (and delight) when he walks into her museum, then imagine her anger when he wants to take the painting away. She agrees to work with him to confirm his ownership of the painting, little knowing that she's actually putting herself in the middle of vampire politics. They try to deny their feelings for one another for their own reason - Sydney has bad relationship history and Logan is a vampire with bad relationsh ...more

Curator Sydney Worth has an embarrassing crush on the handsome kilted man in her favorite historical painting. The portrait is more then two hundred years old, so the last thing she expects is for him to walk into her museum.   

Logan, the eldest son of the Murdoch vampire clan, can't understand why this stubborn mortal woman isn't falling for his mind control. Left with no other choice, he agrees to work with Sydney to prove his family's claim to the painting. Now he just has to figure out how

This is a book that has been on my TBR pile for entirely too long, like literally, too long. See I did a book tour for this book back, umm let's just call it awhile ago, and I promised that when I got a chance to read the book I would be happy to do a review. So yeah, life and stuff happened and I just never got around to reading the book. I feel bad about that, because it was a decent read and here I have been sitting on it for umm... yeah, awhile, like I said.

As you can tell from the series, i

A fun, fluffy read. Great humor & snarky dialogue. Plenty of heat in all the expected places. I'm not usually one for Romance-type novels (unless their either funny or have vampires--this has BOTH), but it's written under a pseudonym by one of my favorite Urban Fantasy authors, Jaye Wells. I can tell she self-published this as there were far too many typos & glitches that would never have gotten past the editing department of an established publishing house. I understand that there were problems ...more

Review can also be found on my blog.

I am not the biggest paranormal romance fan, I much prefer urban fantasy. I love this author’s urban fantasy books that she writes under another name so I figured I would give this series a shot. And boy did I remember why I rarely read paranormal romance. This book is not horrible, I’ve definitely read way worse in this genre, but I have read better as well. It’s got quite a bit of cheesy moments, I felt the plot could have been developed better, some of the

This book was a nice read. I enjoyed the plot and characters. The reason I only gave it 4 stars was because there were several grammatical errors in the writing. I would be reading and get to an error that was so bad that it would pull me out of the book. I'd spend time trying to figure out what the author was trying to say and it would ruin that part of the book. I think a little extra editing or a fresh set of eyes would have been helpful to the author before publishing.

This book was cute and entertaining! Lots of sarcastic and silly things happening. I'm a huge fan of this author so naturally I had to try this although as I get older it's not quite my genre anymore. But it fit the bill for the younger generation. I didn't like the relationship drama at the end, seemed immature especially on Sydney's part but again that's just a part of young adult stuff. All in all, some great ideas and a cute story and likable characters ...more

Loved this. A delightful, witty, pacey, paranormal romance with a truly engaging heroine and hero, fab secondary characters (love Kira!), many deft touches of humour, some hawt action (with The Hot Scot, of course *g*), and a wonderful HEA. Fans of Lyndsay Sands' Argeneau vamps will love it. Can't wait to read #2 Rebel Child The Murdoch Vampires 2.
Light, fun and a little silly. I enjoyed this throughly. The characters are easy to connect with and lovable. One star off for the overly cheesy parts and quick ending. We knew it would end that way but it took a page...maybe a page and a half. Still a great book and I would recommend it for those looking for a not so serious paranormal romance.

Hot Sexy Scot!

Sydney Worth is a museum curator. Logan Murdoch is a scientist, & oh yeah, a vampire. When the two meet fireworks happen. However, they continually fight their attraction to each other. Throw in a few extremely likable characters, some uproariously funny situations, & a red hot romance & you have a very entertaining love story.

The Hot Scot is not hot enough to gain my complete interest.
Kate Eden (the author) intent at humorous romance with supernatural hot male and fails. *sigh* At least the copy was cheap and I won't be crying over this.

An avid romance fan since her early teens, Kate loves writing–and reading–stories about plucky heroines, sexy heros and the weird and wild journey people take on their way to love.
