Book Review: Dangerous In A Kilt by Anna Durand
Holy Hot Scot!
What an excellent read this was! I have to confess that I went into this one with a little bit of trepidation, because I read one of the author's other books and didn't like it, but I was really enjoyably surprised by this one.
I liked the heroine, Erica, from whose first-person perspective the story is told, right from the beginning. Her Awful Ex had left her in an appalling predicament and I must admit that if I was in her situation, I'd probably have been going out looking for hot, no-strings affairs too. It was very easy to put myself in her shoes and sympathize with her; she always behaved in a very understandable, human manner.
Did I say that I liked Erica? Well, I LOVED Lachlan. Hoo boy *still fanning myself* he was absolutely SCORCHING hot. Who wouldn't want a man like that, Scottish protective instincts and all? If I was Erica I might have come clean about the troubles I was facing a little earlier, but then Lachlan was keeping secrets of his own, so I completely understand why she didn't.
The romance progressed at a very reasonable pace over the space of a month - I don't really like books that have the characters declaring undying love after a couple of days - and it all felt very real and believable. The sex scenes were EXTREMELY hot. All in all, a book for the keeper shelf!
