Summary:

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 and 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.



Review:

Another sizzling book in the series...

I was completely take by Wicked Wild Scot. Ended up reading this back to back. Simply because I wanted- nay needed more. Retrospectively that might have been a disfavor. I think I had such high expectations, they were simply hard to meet.
So everything I read in Sinful Scottish Laird was compared to WWS.
While the first installment boasted a rather different storyline - Sinful Scottish Laird, no so much.
Don't get me wrong. It's interesting and compelling. But it was more cliche than the first book...
The character building is done excellently. The relationship between the characters is beyond interesting and I adore their subtle yet big changes.
The writing style is beautiful. There are wonderful descriptions of the Highlands, that made me want to go back for a visit.

A beautiful, enticing and sizzling novel definitely a must read for lovers of the genre
