I think the author forgot to create an actual plot for this book. I mean, Clara has a fake pregnancy and Hunt has a curse on him and they marry each other without first revealing the truth about either of those things. That isn't a spoiler because it's in the blurb. So what happens next? A whole lot of practically nothing. Then you get an epilogue which is basically just a desperate attempt to interest the reader in reading the next book in the series, focusing on a minor character found in this ...more

I’ve been reading all of the books in this series and this one was definitely my favorite.

I really liked Clara and Hunt. They’re both so stubborn and so sassy. I was amused by their push and pull and how much they fought being together. It was fun to see Marcus and Alyse and I’m intrigued about Marian.

Plot wise, it was fairly quick moving. There’s a good amount of traveling, but it didn’t feel repetitive. The curse was sort of weird to me; however it really worked for the story and of course I

This Scot of Mine: The Rogue Files by Sophie Jordan is book 4 in The Rogue Files Series. This is the story of Clara and Hunt. I have read (and Loved!) the previous books, but feel you can make this a standalone book if you wish to do so.
Clara faked being pregnant to escape being married to a man she didn't want. Clara is exiled and runs to her brother, The Duke of Autenberry is Scotland. Along the way she meets Hunt who turns out to be her brother friend. Hunts MacLarin feels his family is curs

This was a quick and satisfying historical romance read. I feel like I know what I am getting with a Sophie Jordan book and she delivers the story with a feel-good factor. The story was a twist on the normal Scottish Laird with a bunch of chemistry and superstitions thrown in to meddle.

Clara was in disgrace and sent to her brother, the Duke in the highlands. Except her disgrace wasn't what it seemed and somewhat of her own making. Lies turn into deceit with some hoodwinking on the way and what y

The Lairds of the MacLarin clan are cursed - doomed to love but not to live. And for five generations this curse has held, all the previous lairds have died before their firstborn child took it's first breath.
Laird Hunt MacLarin has spent his life avoiding the curse - he will not marry and will not father a child - but his carefully laid plans turn to dust when a chance encounter brings Lady Clara, sister of the Duke of Autenberry into his life.

I have read other books by this author and so was looking forward to reading this book. I was very disappointed, however. The story was disjointed, the characters were flat, and the plot was weak. I almost did not finish it, but plowed on.

What would we call this trope? The reverse secret baby trope? Idk but it was a unique premise that I enjoyed! One of the best parts of any Sophie Jordan novel is how readable her writing is. I would sit down with THIS SCOT OF MINE, and before I knew it, I was at 25%.

The book follows Lady Clara who has had to uproot her whole life and move to Scotland to live with her brother after a scandal in England. On the way, she meets a rowdy Scottish man who brawls over cows. He turns out to

This is my second pregnant lady marries a Scot this year!

But this one is different. She told her fiance she was preggers to get away from him. Maybe you should have run away instead of ruining yourself and your family. Women! But Clara did have a good point for getting away cos he was not a nice man. So hide in Scotland with her brother is the answer.

Hunt was all Scot. I liked that. But he also deathly afraid of a curse, and from what I saw, that curse is real. Which makes me think of the idiot

Original review on Julalicious Book Paradise

All the books in the Rogue Files are standalone, but really, it helps to have read the first books in the series to get a bit of background.

So let’s get started on this review.

I won’t lie; I think that this book was my favourite of the series so far. It was quite different from what I had read so far and I found it quite refreshing.

In order to get out of an engagement to a cruel and violent fiance, Lady Clara tells everyone she's pregnant with another man's child then flees to her brother's home in the Black Isle of Scotland. Marcus, the Duke of Autenberry wants to help his sister and mentions her situation to his friend, Laird Hunt MacLarin, who immediately offers to marry her. The men of Hunt's family are all cursed to die before the birth of their firstborn child, so marriage has always been out of the question

Her need to get away from the Earl of Rolland was so great, that Lady Clara Autenberry deliberately ruined herself by telling him she was expecting another man's baby. Clara then fled to her brother's in Scotland to live out the rest of her life in spinsterish misery. If only she had not met that brawny Scot, Laird Hunt MacLarin. Hunt is an honourable man, he would have loved to have a family of his own, but there is that curse that has plagued the MacLarins for generations. A MacLarin man does ...more
A fun read, but I think that the book 'lost the plot,' quite literally. While I love the idea and the concept of this book, nothing really happened and it seemed like any semblance of a plot was missing -like the curse, for example. Shame, because of I could have done with a lot of more Laird Hunt in my life.

Lady Clara Autenberry is completely disenchanted with her unpleasant fiancé. She devises an unusual plan. She tells him that she is pregnant with another man's child. This ruins her in his eyes. What's more is she is ruined in the eyes of society, so Clara flees to Scotland, to the hone of her brother, Marcus, the duke of Autenberry, and his wife, Alyse. She may alwas be a spinster, but at least the ruination and unavoidable gossip won't follow her.

Those of you who know me know I love a good historical romance. Historical romance in particular is what I read when I am in a reading slump, or when I am in between holds at the library. I find them to be quick, entertaining, and intellectually engaging. In the world of romance, Sophie Jordan is on my auto-buy list, along with Sarah MacLean and Eloisa James.

Discovering far too late that her betrothed is not what he seems and not being able to reconcile her soon-to-be life with her own example of love and happiness in her family, she pretends to have strayed and become pregnant, all for him to drop her. Of course, being the age it was, the plan works, but Clara is ruined and the subject of gossip and shunning by the tonne, a group that she had always fo ...more

This Scot of Mine is the 4th installment of The Rogue Files series, and I can attest to the fact that it can easily be read as a standalone. When I sat down to review this title, I made the surprising discovery that I've only read installments 2 & 4. In the future, I plan on going back to book 1, rereading 2, and so forth.

I like Sophie Jordan's books, but this one felt lazy, like it was a novella originally. For all the talk of Clara's despicable fiance, I expected him to make an appearance, but all we get are vague references from Clara about how evil & cruel he is. However, we never meet him or get any specific examples of what he's done that warranted Clara claiming a lie so ruinous she exiles herself rather than marry him.

The ninny and the hunk

In order to escape an engagement to a despicable man, Clara pretends to have gotten pregnant by another man. Putting a notice in the newspaper announcing the end of the engagement or asking her family for help were apparently not considered. Now a ruined woman, she travels to Scotland to live with her brother. On the way she meets the hunk - I mean Hunt. It’s lust at first sight. There’s a curse, deception by almost everyone, and very little romance.

A lovely unique story, even sexy, once you get past the deception subplot.

Hunt and Clara’s meet-cute was fun and after the explanations, they’re actually great together.

I loved the Carpe Diem mindset in view of the curse and I cheered at the improbability of the happy-ever-after ending.

Also, gorgeous cover.

Not Very Satisfying

The whole story revolved around the curse of the McLarin Lairds, it was intriguing at the beginning and the characters were engaging enough. It would have been good, if they have explained how did they break the curse. The prologue was about it, I was hoping that the epilogue would be the conclusion. Alas, in the end, it’s only all assumptions on the readers part. Maybe because Hunt married her when he thought that he was pregnant with another man’s child or probably because

For much of this book, the main characters are consumed with thoughts about impending death—specifically, death caused by a centuries-long curse—and yet Sophie Jordan’s This Scot of Mine gave me so much happiness, both reading the book and later, when I found myself daydreaming about a HEA fiercely fought for.

Sophie Jordan took her adolescent daydreaming one step further and penned her first historical romance in the back of her high school Spanish class. This passion led her to pursue a degree in English and History.

A brief stint in law school taught her that case law was not nearly as interesting as literature - teaching English seemed the natural recourse. After several years
