Book Description

"Filled with everything I love most about Highland romance."—Melissa Mayhue, award-winning author of Warrior's Redemption

She's On Her Way to Safety

It's a sign of Lady Rosalia Armstrong's desperation that she's seeking refuge in a place as rugged and challenging as the Scottish Highlands. She doesn't care about hardship and discomfort, if only she can become master of her own life. Laird Ciaran MacGregor, however, is completely beyond her control...

He Redefines Dangerous...

Ciaran MacGregor knows it's perilous to get embroiled with a fiery Lowland lass, especially one as headstrong as Rosalia. Having made a rash promise to escort her all the way to Glengarry, now he's stuck with her, even though she challenges his legendary prowess at every opportunity. When temptation reaches its peak, he'll be ready to show her how he really is...on and off the battlefield.

5.0 out of 5 stars Strong Start for New Highlander Tale September 6, 2012
By Renee
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Temptation In A Kilt is the first in Victoria Roberts new 'Bad Boys of the Highlands' series and what a great start it is!

From the moment I met Laird Ciaran MacGregor on page 1, I was hooked, and evidently so was Rosalia Armstrong. Their brief eye contact at English Court haunts them both. Rosalia is the only child of Caroline and Ronald Armstrong. They have foolishly frittered away their wealth and are now offering their daughters hand in marriage to an elderly and unsavory Lord Dunnehl in exchange for money to replenish their coffers. Rosalia, of course, objects. In her heart of hearts she hopes to, one day, wed for love. Caroline Armstrong puts Cinderella's evil step-mother to shame and orders Rosalia to not only prepare their home for the arrival of Lord Dunnehl but then to also 'entertain' him with no denial of any request. Lord Dunnehl's visit does not turn out well and Rosalia decides to flee her home and make a better life for herself in Glengarry with her Grandmother. Borrowing clothing from her best friend since childhood, James, Rosalia manages to disguise herself and escape a dismal future with Lord Dunnehl.

Returning to his home at Glenorchy, Ciaran, his brother Aiden and their men come across Rosalia who has fallen from her horse in exhaustion and hit her head hard enough on the ground to knock herself out. Disguised as a lad the men try to determine her injuries and help. Ciaran discovers her subterfuge and thus begins our Highland love story. Through many trials and misunderstandings, Ciaran's perceived call to duty is a constant threat to their growing feelings for each other. Ciaran portrays all of the stubborness and tenderness of every Highlander we have ever loved and Rosalia is our strong, and equally stubborn, heroine.

3.0 out of 5 stars Highlanders and romance...... September 18, 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Read from September 02 to 03, 2012


This hot new series follows a trio of Highland lairds, who are driving King James crazy with their constant clan battles and uproarious way of life.

Laird Ciaran MacGregor discovers the beautiful, wounded Lady Rosalia Armstrong while journeying to the king's court. Already burdened with the task of maintaining the peace in his lands, Ciaran has very little patience for this headstrong woman. She's as fearsome as the men trying to kill him for his lands, and their verbal sparring leaves him burning for a more intimate relationship. And if Rosalia's not careful, she'll soon discover his prowess...on and off the battlefield.

My Thoughts

The book was slightly disappointing to me as I expected more. I did enjoy the book but for me it was more of a "formula historical romance" than truly anything original to the genre. I felt that the author had taken bits and pieces of my favorite historical romance authors works and created a story line and characters of her own out of them. Normally I would say that while that does not totally bother me I was going on my gut feeling when I read the book synopsis that the story would be more dynamic than what it turned out to be. While I admit that I truly love anything and everything written that features the Scottish Highlands, the highlanders themselves, the people and their politics just really think that it is always best when I find an author who does it without drawing upon tried and true scenarios from other books. At the same time each story is unique unto itself, Temptation In A Kilt has it's own appeal. I truly think that it's target audience will love it completely, unreservedly and look forward to the next book in the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars The heroine was unique September 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Temptation in a Kilt, Victoria Roberts

Laird Ciaran Macgregor of Glenorchy is on his way home from court, when he runs into a young boy who he thinks is hurt. Rosalia, a highlander with a high strung English mother remembers Laird Macgregor from her day at court. She is fleeing her arranged marriage to a man who was rumored to have murdered his wife. Her mother does not care about the man her potential fiancé is, just that he has the coins to keep her in the lifestyle she has become accustomed. Laird Macgregor offers Rosalia refuge in his home and cannot help falling in love with her although he tries to deny it. Rosalia, use to abuse at the hands of her mother thrives under her new freedom and new friends, she is in love with the Laird but has trouble believing he can love someone as big as her.

Bookswagger Danielle: Four Crowns, good read, on the way to swagger. I really enjoyed this book, it made me remember why I use to read historicals. Rosalia appealed to me on many different levels. I admired her strength in going against her parents' wishes and running away. However what I really liked about her was in spite of all the things she had gone through, she was still open and warm. I imagine I would be closed and weary of others if those things had happened to me. I liked Ciaran although at times I wanted to smack him for being so stubborn and obtuse. I wanted to yell at him bump Aiden. The author did a wonderful job of making me like him. I had to respect his fairness and his sense of right and wrong.

This book had a small element of suspense and I liked that it wasn't over done. I did notice that the author did have what I would call dead space or periods of descriptive passages.
