2.5 stars rounded up because the author is one of my favorites and knows how to write. I just did not enjoy this particular story, and I fear I will be in the minority with that.

I think most people will like the book for the spirited heroine, but I didn't enjoy for exactly that reason. There is also a lot of relationship drama and angst, both of which I just hate. I get that both characters are scared, but the amount of misunderstandings and constant jumping to conclusions on both sides made it

I loved this book. LOVED. Sigh. I love you Anna Bradley. I LOVE YOU!!! This was one of those books I just couldn't put down. I started it late last night. Like after 11pm. And I just couldn't stop. Wait, its after midnight? Don't care, this story has totally enthralled me. Wait, it's after 1 and my husband is snoring in my ear? I'm too in love with these characters to care. It's after 2 and my children will be up in 4 hours going bonkers? No regrets. My husband woke up and was like, “YOU'RE STIL ...more

One more new-author-to-me discovered today. Well not today, as I preordered this book when I first read the blurb. Even if it is often full of angst what I am not always fond, this enemies to lovers romance was definitively a must-read.
The main couple to reach their happily ever after have a long way stretching in front of them. Nothing will be easy, from their instant dislike to their growing attraction to their acceptance of their sentiments.

I couldn’t wait to read this book after reading The Wayward Bride. I fell in love with all the characters (Sydney and Luke, and Hugh and Isla will always have a big swoon from me) and needed to learn of Lady Juliana’s fate.

From the first page I was drawn into Lady Juliana’s plight. After letting Hugh out of their betrothal in the first book, Lady Juliana only had one option left to save Grace....Marry the Duke, Fitz.

However, things don’t go quite as planned and come to find out Fitz has a brothe

Lady Juliana Bernard had to get married quickly so that her beloved niece Grace would not end up with a villain for a guardian. Juliana departed for Scotland, where she would ask her best friend, Fitzwilliam Vaughan, the Duke of Blackmore to marry her. After all, they had been betrothed since childhood. Alas, during the months when she'd had no news from him, Fitzwilliam had found love. In view of everything that happened, Logan Blair, Fitzwilliam's brother would marry her and set things right, ...more

I read an advanced reader's copy of To Wed a Wild Scot.

Lady Juliana Bernard is a heroine that is willing to take risks to protect her niece. Logan is also willing to do what he needs to do to protect his clan.

The story takes place mostly in the highlands and the author has done her research of the area and the time period.

I love that the characters are protective of their loved ones. There is some friction between the brothers but it's understandable due to the circumstances surrounding them.

A fun Highland adventure! 4.5 stars

I really liked Anna Bradley's first story 'The Wayward Bride, in her 'Besotted Scots' series. I found her second story, To Wed a Wild Scot charming to read, but less enjoyable than I had expected. I liked the story and the characters but for some reason, I didn't enjoy it as much. My reviews always reflect my honest opinion, so for that reason, I had to give it 4.5 stars.

Set in Scotland's Highlands, this time, we follow Julianna, Logan and Fitzwilliam, twin bro

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Logan & Juliana's story! He's a stubborn Scot and she's a stubborn Englishwoman....put the two together and you get fireworks!! Not liking each other very much when they first meet, it doesn't take long before their feelings change but due to misunderstandings and various events, neither admits their love to each other until it's almost too late.

It was also interesting to read about the Highland Clearances and how entire villages and the people in them were dest

What kept going through my head as I read this...
1. Did I miss Fitz and Emilia’s story? This reads like I should understand their back story.

2. Enough with the misunderstandings already. Sheesh - once or twice is ok, but repeatedly spending days upset because neither of you can ask a simple question? Maddening!!!

So, I enjoyed Logan and Juliana’s story when they were getting along, but unfortunately the majority of the time they aren’t getting along because they don’t bother to communicate.

This was a delightful story of a marriage of convenience between two exact opposites. Lady Juliana was English and Logan, a Scottish Laird. It was a great book that I could not put down once I started it. It kept me entertained till the last page. I’m looking forward to reading the next book. I highly recommend this romp towards a HEA. It’s a feel good romance with well developed characters and equally fun secondary characters. Well done Ms. Bradley.

We met Lady Juliana Bernard in The Wayward Bride, book one in this series. I really liked her in that book because she was intelligent, caring, and seemed to have her act together. In this book, Juliana seems to be a tale of two people. In the Scottish portion of the book, she is strong, intelligent, caring – stubborn and determined. In the English portion of the book, she seems to shrink as a person. I did enjoy both locations,

To Wed a Wild Scot is Anna Bradley's second book in her Besotted Scots series. If you haven't read the first yet, you'll get along just fine jumping in here. However, since Juliana appeared in the previous book and was important in that storyline, I recommend reading that first.

I loved reading this book, usually the storyline with Highlanders are not my cup of tea. Lady Juliana had a couple problems. One, she needed a husband so that she could have custody of her niece. Lady Juliana's father placed in his will that if she was not married then custody would go to a very bad man. Two, she tried to get married to two different guys, but both happened to fall in love with another person. Lady Juliana felt that these two men should go and marry the love of their life.

The Scottish clearances were real and to say the least horrible for Scots. This book's prologue describes one of the terrible instances, giving the reader a look into Logan Blair's actions several years later. Lady Juliana is a woman with a dilemma. She needs to be married in order to gain custody of her niece, Grace. Her time is running out since her father is very ill and has named Lord Benedict Bowden as Grace's guardian. Although Juliana knows Lord Cowden's true nature, her father does not. ...more

This is a stand alone novel by Anna Bradley.
The hero of the story is Logan Blair, Laird of Clan Kinross and twin brother to the Duke of Blackmore, Fitzwilliam Vaughn.
The heroine is Lady Juliana Bernard, daughter of the Marquess of Graystone.
Lady Juliana and Fitzwilliam have grown up together. Betrothed since birth, they are more like brother and sister, best friends. There is no romantic interest there. But when Juliana is in trouble, and needs to be married, the only person she can turn to is

Desperate to marry to protect her niece Grace, she searches for Fitz, as they have been betrothed since childhood. However, he is soon to marry and will soon become a father. With no o

When I saw the beautiful eBook cover and read the book information I had high hopes for the story. Unfortunately it didn't quite get there for me. Even though I liked the main characters, it was kind of slow for quite a few times. It did have some good moments as well but just not enough for me to get really pulled in and stay that way.
I did like that Juliana had a determined, strong part to her that the situations (and Logan) forced to the forefront. She was a tiny, beautiful woman seen by man

I was very excited at the beginning of this story. Juliana was a strong, feisty English woman in the wilds of Scotland. Then she goes back to England. Juliana was in the previous story and I really enjoyed reading about her in that book. For over half of this book I was uncaring about Juliana. I thought she was narcissistic. I know she only wanted to look out for Grace, but she did it to the detriment of everyone else, especially Logan, who I loved by the way (even though he is not the alpha Sco ...more

I was provided with an ARC of this title from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

This was an engaging historical romance with a feisty heroine and a brooding hero. The passion between them was evident from their first meeting, but the relationship evolved realistically before their feelings were declared. The plot twists were unconventional enough to be unpredictable.

Juliana is determined to bring her wayward fiance to heel - there is too much at stake. He is her dearest friend and she

Lady Juliana must marry and quickly due to her father’s worsting health and her desire to raise her niece, Grace.

So she has taken a huge risk and has journeyed to Scotland to ask her best friend, Fitz, Duke of Blackmore to marry her.

I recommend reading the first book as well because it fills in some of the background to this story and I enjoyed it immensely but you could read this one as a stand-alone if need be.

The Highland Clearances as a background seems to be trending in current historical romance novels. This is the fifth I've read in the past year. In this case it serves as the impetus for the hero Logan to behave as he does, intercepting letters, for the well-being of his clansmen.
Lady Juliana's goal in the story is to secure a marriage and thus the guardianship of her late brother's daughter, Grace. If she does not succeed, her father has named an unrelated (nasty) male rather than Grace's perfe
