About book: Reviewed by CrystalBook provided by NetGalley for reviewReview originally posted at Romancing the BookTemptation in a Kilt makes me remember why I love highland men.Rosalia is a woman who has lived through a lot in her one and twenty years. She has lived through the emotional and physical abuse of her parents. She never seems to do anything right. Her parents set her up to marry a vial man. She finally stands up for herself and gets the beating of her life.Ciaran is Laird and he was sent by the king to come to court. He can’t wait to get back to the highlands where he belongs. He is on his way back when he sees what he thinks is a lad on the ground past out. He realizes his mistake and that’s when he meets Rosalia.Reading this made me remember why I love highlander books. I got such a wonderful feeling reading this and I felt like I had come home. I felt so sorry for Rosalia knowing all the pain and suffering that she had went through. You wanted everything to turn out right for her. You just knew that she was destined to find the man that would take care of her for the rest of her days. She always saw the good in people no matter what they did.Ciaran is the man of every woman’s fantasies. He has a great personality and wants to take care of you. He is very muscular and in great shape; just thinking of him makes me want to faint. I just wished he would get over the vow that he made to his father when he died. I wanted to say “just forget your brother he’s an adult now and can take care of himself. Marry her already you big dope, you know you love her.”Sometimes I wondered why it takes some tragedy to open their eyes and realize that they love the other. But hey they are the books that I love to read.I really enjoyed Temptation in a Kilt. The author did a wonderful job with her storyline and brought out the best of her characters. Which some of them I just wanted to hate. I have to have that in every story — the good and the bad.The love that Rosalia and Ciaran had just made my heart melt and sent me to my own fantasy world. So I guess you can tell that I will forever have the story and the characters in my heart.I recommend this story to everyone. When you read this book you realize no matter how bad your life is that something good has to come out of it. Hopefully when you reach the end of the rainbow there will be your one true love. Lady Rosalia has suffered abuse constantly at the hand of her mother. But when she refuses to marry a English lord, and will wait for love, she is brutally beaten. So Rosalia, cuts her hair, and dresses in men's clothing, takes her horse and heads up to Scotland to stay with her grandmother. But on her way up she collapses off her horse and blacks out. Ciaran MacGregor, is glad to be leaving London and heading back home. After paying respects to the King James, he is eager to return to his clan, and make good on his promise to his father, to guide his younger brother Declan from a path of debauchery and drinking. On his way to his keep however, his men stumble on a boy who has taken a terrible fall. After further examination Ciaran learns that the "boy" is none other than a woman, who has been badly beaten. At first Ciaran is eager to get home, but willing to help Rosalia heal and help her on her way to her destination. but Ciaran finds himself drawn to Rosalia and offers her sanctuary at his home until arrangement can be made for her journey to north Scotland. A fierce passion escalates between Ciaran and Rosalia, and with a nefarious plot out to destroy Ciaran and everyone he loves, only embracing his love for Rosalia will he be able to defeat the enemy that threatens that which is his.Temptation in a Kilt is the first in the series, and the first I have been able to read from this author. I obtained a copy through Audible, and boy I am so glad I did. The narrator is one of my favorites, Elizabeth Wiley, who did a fantastic job with the Scottish accents and tones of emotions of the variety of characters involved in the story. Temptation In A Kilt is one of my favorite books I have read so far this year!! A truly amazing romance that swept me away from the first moment. If you like sexy highlander, strong willed heroines, and a endearing love story full of the history and passion of the highlands...this story is definitely for you!! I really love every element that combined this story into a sweeping romance.The characters in this story were lively and passionate. The two main characters Ciaran and Rosalia were perfect for each other, they complimented each other so well. Ciaran is a highland laird, and as such is devoted to his clan and his responsibilities. When he finds out who Rosalia, some of priorities start to slowly shift toward Rosalia. I loved Ciaran as the hero of the story. He could be very commanding and possessive at times, but also had a soft spot for Rosalia, and I loved the tender and sweet actions he had toward her, especially after he learns the truth of her wounds. Rosalia I had mixed feelings about. I truly admired her as the heroine, and from the first moment, you are cheering her on. For not giving in to her parents demands even knowing the consequences, wanting to be in charge of her own future. She definitely has a strong spirit, and a fighter, and I admired her courage that she displays in the story. However there was something about her character I had a hard time liking. I felt like she too prideful too many times. Despite all that I felt like her character was well balanced for the most part, and she became very endearing to this reader. The side characters were fun, and I loved Aiden(Ciaran brother) and his wife, and of course Declan who is very Bad Boy type( I am aching to read his story). There is quite a few different conflicts in the story, but by the end, the story gets wrapped up quite nicely, and I had a giddy happy look on my face I am sure, by the very end.A fully satisfying romance that enthralls the reader!! A intense love story that takes you to the romance of the highlands, steamy passion, lively characters, charming dialogue and a tale to take your breath away!!! Impossible to put down! REMARKABLY WRITTEN!!
