SCANDALOUS IN A KILT (Hot Scots #3) by Anna Durand is the third book in this contemporary romance series that had my emotions all over the place and that is what I always hope for when reading a romance. I was happy, sad, understanding, mad, frustrated and completely satisfied right along with each main character. Ms. Durand made Rory and Emery come to life!

This is the third installment in the Hot Scott series and I believe this is my favorite one yet. I need to reiterate that each book is a standalone and they don’t need to be read in order if the reader chooses not to. I recommend reading each one only to enhance the enjoyment of the series. Reading each one is not necessary in order to understand the plot.

I loved Rory and Emery, I loved their chemistry, t

This is the best kind of delicious smut!

Oh, my heart goes out to Rory. His heart has been so trampled on by his three ex-wives, it's a wonder he didn't become a monk. He has no confidence left in his ability to maintain a relationship, but he makes up for it with supreme confidence in his work and in his ability to seduce and please a woman in bed. He tries to convince himself that this is enough, that his passion for his work can effectively fill the hole in his heart. Until his newly-married

SCANDALOUS IN A KILT is the third book in the Hot Scots series. While each book is centered on one couple leading to their HEA, it is best to read them in the order of release.

Let’s start with that delicious kilt. First, Lachlan visits America and he goes to a bar on kilt night where he meets Erica. Then when Aidan also visits the Chicago area, Lachlan tricks him into believing that every Friday is kilt night at the club, Dance Ardor. Calli meets him there. Up until now, we’ve been lead to belie

I fell in love with Emery and Rory from their first steamy meeting and loved them through the end of their HEA.

Emery is on a brief vacation in New Orleans and celebrating being out of the drudgery of her job for a few days. Resolving to let her wild and crazy side out to play for just a few days until she returns to empty her desk and begin looking for a serious job, she heads to the famous Pat O'Brien's piano bar for a Hurricane to put her in the mood for adventure.

Rory is a man of mystery. Wh

I have not read the first two books in this series, but they can all be read separately. Emery is a girl who wants a new direction in life. She was laid off but is not even sure she wants to stay in her current career field. In walks Rory, a sexy Scot. They have a one night stand, but Rory starts thinking of more. It starts as the typical, hey lets get married to get my family off my back book, but I felt this one was a little different than the oth

Note: This review is for an ARC and is my unbiased opinion.

Scandalous in a Kilt was my favorite in the Hot Scots series. It was one of those books that’s pure fun. The story is fairly light and very entertaining. Emery and Rory have an immediate, intense sexual attraction. That attraction leads to a one night stand. Both are thrown off by a chemistry that is off the charts. They don’t plan on seeing each other again, but are soon in a contract marriage. Of course,

Holy hell what a book! This is an extraordinary story. It is so completely well written and thought through.

This is Roy's story and how he met and fell for Emery. They meet in new Orleans and out of all the girls in the bar it's Emery that grabs his attention and after one night he decides he wants her to be his not so fake wife to get his family of his back. But his ordered world is not ready for an. She is slowly changing him. His past marriages have shaped him. And wha

Anna Durand’s, “Scandalous in a Kilt (Hot Scots Book 3),” is the third installment in her series, where Rory is a stereotypical, masculine Scottish man meeting with Emery, a young woman who is drained from her daily grind. These two unexpectedly meet and hook up, leading to a quick marriage that is ultimately a true test to their personalities due to the fact that they had such strong ideals, but now had to come together into one relationship. Some aspects seem a bit ridiculous, such as the quic ...more

Perfect steamy summer read.

Scandalous in a Kilt (Hot Scots Book 3) by Anna Durand is a fantastic mix of real romantic plot and steamy sex. Rory and Emery meet in New Orleans on Emerys first night in town. They agree to a steamy one night stand but one thing leads to another and they end up in a marriage of convenience. Like any romance novel they have their differences and everything isn’t cookie cutter perfect, but the sex is always amazing. Rory and Emery have a lot of chemistry but do they h

Can I just address the title real quick? It made me both giggle and blush. A bit cheese and cheeky. But hey, it’s a romance novel and a fun light summer read.

Now I did read these books out of order, but I was able to pick up on the story fairly easily. You certainly are not reading these books for the relationship advice, but more like a guilty pleasure to get into. There is a ton of drama and steamy scenes to get into. There are far away destination to add to the already dreamy yet thrilling n

I found this book discounted on Amazon via The Fussy Librarian; this is my honest review.
-Emery's only goals in life are to do nothing all day, have sex, and turn Rory a good 160 degrees.
-Rory's goals are to follow rules, be the best lover ever and stay away from Emery emotionally.
-It's a very emotional book but didn't get drawn in because there was so much drama I couldn't take it.
-I was glad to see Rory's family again.
-There is no way this book is only 280 pages. It took me over 12 hrs to read

Love this series. This book does not disappoint

I bought this book after I finished the first two books. The couples face different problems, so each story follows a different path. In this book Rory, three times divorced and not ready for a relationship meets Emery in a bar and offers her a marriage of convenience. Emery accepts and the move to Scotland where Emery swears she'll help upright Rory remember how to have fun.

This is entertaining, romantic and engrossing. Rory is stubborn, insecure, caring unpredictable, cold and sweet. Emery is smart, hyper, personable and stubborn. A one night stand turns into a one year marriage of convenience. Rory thought to keep his family off his back, Emery thought to put a little fun into Rory's life, and to get a new start. But while Emery wouldn't mind the marriage lasting for longer than a year, Rory refuses to have feelings for her. The storyline is full of sweetness, an ...more

Another amazing Scotland book full of spice, reluctance and bit of scandal. This is Rory and Emery's story. Rory has a broken heart from his previous marriages and only wants what any man wants, sex without attachment, until he meets Emery and all that goes out the window. Lots of hot sex scene's flow throughout this book along with a coldness from Rory that Emery has to try to break through. Great book, and I look forward to more writings from this Author.

Imaginative sexy romance

Anna Durand has created another wonderful addition for her Hot Scotts series.
Rory and Emery are sizzling beneath the sheets but he's reluctant to allow himself to feel any emotions. Emery a fiesty caring free spirit is determine to open Rory to possibilities of fun and love. The chemistry between them is off the charts and while sometimes painful to see Rory's "coldness" to Emery it makes his breakthrough as a warm caring man all the sweeter.

This #3 book of Hot Scots is the story of Rory and Emery and has a very different storyline compared to the other books. A storyline which I really loved!
After three divorces Rory only cares for one night stands and is immediately attracted to Emery when he lays eyes on her. Emery just recently broke up with her boyfriend and is ready to have some fun. But -of course- it doesn’t end after one night.

I received a free copy of this book from the author and voluntarily chose to review.

I really enjoyed the first two "xxx in a Kilt" books and this third installment did not disappoint. It starts off quite steamy with an instant attraction between the h and H. As we later learn in the story, Rory has his reasons for being wary of relationships. Fortunately, his reserve is not "magically" overcome, but is very slowly thawed by the vivacious Emery.

Free spirited leaves her day to day job for a one night stand when she is laid off. But it is not just another one night stand by a charming but uptight seducer.

He did not need another relationship but pressured into a marriage of convenience with benefits. Will they realize they are what they need to be complete despite themselves.
