A young widow puts her sexy suitors to the test in New York Times bestselling author Julia London's scintillating return to the idyllic Scottish Highlands.
Widowed and forced to remarry in three years' time or forfeit her son's inheritance, Daisy Bristol, Lady Chatwick, has plenty of suitors vying for her hand…and her fortune. But a letter from a long-lost love sends Daisy and her young son to her Scottish Highland estate to buy time for his return. Along the way she encounters the powerful Cailean Mackenzie, laird of Arrandale and a notorious smuggler, and she is utterly—though unwillingly—bewitched.
Cailean has no use for any Sassenach in his glen. But Daisy's brazen, flirtatious nature and alluring beauty intrigue him. When her first love appears unexpectedly at her estate, Cailean knows that a passionate woman like Daisy cannot marry this man. And to prevent the union, Cailean must put his own life at risk to win her heart.
Sinful Scottish Laird by Julia London is a sensuous read. Good main characters and great secondary characters showcased a story that although slow out of the gate eventually picked up I wish I could have connected more with Daisy. I felt as if she didn't quite fit the times. I enjoyed Calilean, although I found him a bit too serious. I felt this story could have gone in so many more interesting directions than it did. I do plan on reading more from Julia London in the future.
