Romance Historical

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.

Re: Temptation In A Kilt

I married to bad boys and ended up with two divorces---but I still like to read about them.
(Sue Farrell 10:42am September 8, 2012)

So good yet so bad....
(
Sally Hannoush 10:57am September 8, 2012)

Ouch, Sue. It's probably safer to read about them. ;-)
(
Victoria Roberts 11:02am September 8, 2012)

Amen, Sally.
(
Victoria Roberts 11:02am September 8, 2012)

But the kilt draws you in...
Love to read about them.
(
Mary Hay 11:04am September 8, 2012)

Is it the kilt, Mary, or wondering what lies beneath? I think it's both. ;-)
(
Victoria Roberts 11:12am September 8, 2012)

I like reading about bad boys and the women that can change them. But in real life they don't change.
(
Pam Howell 11:14am September 8, 2012)

No kidding, Pam. I did say that I write Scottish historical "fiction" romance. *sigh* It's fun to dream though.
(
Victoria Roberts 11:16am September 8, 2012)

My favorite quote was the line with Rosalia opinion that she "doesn't care about hardship and discomfort, if only she can become master of her own life."

Blame it on being a teenager in the 1960's but that has always been my own "motto". My husband of 42 years says I feel that way because I'm stubborn but I think that it's because I've always wanted to be able to make my own decisions in life.

I can only begin the imagine the restrictions put on someone like Rosalia! A headstrong lass likeher needs a hero who will be strong enough to see the real person within and a hero like Ciaran sounds ightsflike a perfect hero who is able to love as well as he protects those he loves!
(
Jeanne Miro 11:29am September 8, 2012)

the good with the bad!
(
Kathy Fowler 11:34am September 8, 2012)

I love reading about the bad boys. They make for a good story line.
(
Cynthia St. Germain 11:34am September 8, 2012)

Jeanne, Rosalia is definitely a fiery lass. Sometimes I think she gives Ciaran a run for his money! Thanks for stopping by.
(
Victoria Roberts 11:40am September 8, 2012)

I have never really met any bad boys so I guess I can only fantasize about them.
So I absolutely love reading books on bad boys. And I love anything Irish!!
(
Winnie Lim 11:41am September 8, 2012)

Kathy, the bad boys are so verra good!
(
Victoria Roberts 11:41am September 8, 2012)

Cynthia, the bad boys definitely provide us with much entertainment.
(
Victoria Roberts 11:42am September 8, 2012)

Winnie, you've never met a bad boy? Not even the ones your mother warned you about?
(
Victoria Roberts 11:43am September 8, 2012)

I love to read about them.
(
Rita Wray 11:56am September 8, 2012)

Always wanted a bad boy- never got one.......you know- the hot sweaty dirty nasty sexy bad boy. Love bad boys in my books.
(
Sheila Mulholland 11:56am September 8, 2012)

Love reading about Bad Boy's
(
Carey Sabala 12:02pm September 8, 2012)

They are great fun to read about, Rita.

Hi Sheila! Great to see you here. We all love our bad boys. ;-)
(
Victoria Roberts 12:03pm September 8, 2012)

Hi Carey. They are fun to read about.
(
Victoria Roberts 12:23pm September 8, 2012)

i like to read about the Bad Boys but really wouldn't want to be married to one.
(
Anna Speed 12:54pm September 8, 2012)

Anna, I totally agree.
(
Victoria Roberts 12:57pm September 8, 2012)

This sounds like a fun, bad boy read.

Renee Grandinetti 1:21pm September 8, 2012)

My hubby was a bad boy when I met him. Talk dark and extremely
handsome! He is still my bad boy although he has settled down! I love ti
read about them too.
(
Kim Cornwell 1:22pm September 8, 2012)

I love reading about Scottish bad boys. There is something exciting about a bad boy highlander. Love the accent.
(
Emily Bowes 1:22pm September 8, 2012)

I was never into bad boys. I guess they didn't really impress me with their big ambitions and arrogant ways. Sounds like a good read.
(
Cheryl English 1:35pm September 8, 2012)

I would so love to win this book!!
(
Charlotte Zimmerman 1:48pm September 8, 2012)

Thanks, Renee. I hope you enjoy my Bad Boys.
(
Victoria Roberts 1:48pm September 8, 2012)

Hi Kim! My husband was a bad boy, too. Now that bad boy is asleep on the couch every night at 8p.m. ;-)
(
Victoria Roberts 1:49pm September 8, 2012)

Emily, the Scottish brogue is verra captivating...
(
Victoria Roberts 1:50pm September 8, 2012)

Thanks, Cheryl and Charlette. Thanks so much for stopping by. Good luck!
(
Victoria Roberts 1:51pm September 8, 2012)

Oooh this book sounds wonderful! Love bad boys!
(
Colleen Conklin 1:54pm September 8, 2012)

This looks like a great book and I look forward to reading it. I hope you have a great day.
(
Chelsea Knestrick 1:57pm September 8, 2012)

I think we enjoy the bad boys cause it's so much sweeter when
they fall in love & admit it.
(
Diane Sallans 1:58pm September 8, 2012)

After taking a couple of peeks at the cover of your latest book, it was hard to write a comment!! ;-) This would be the first Scottish Romance for me to read, but after looking at the reviews, I suppose it would be now or never for me to get my feet wet!! A sexy man on the cover, a hot cup of tea, and I'm all set to usher the Fall in up North!! It sounds like a good read, and I'm sure I'll enjoy it.
(
Peggy Roberson 2:00pm September 8, 2012)

Realy enjoyed your post .Temptation In A Kilt sounds like an amazing read I loved the blurb for this book .Love a hero in a kilt. Highlanders are my favorites to read .Thank you for sharing with us and for this chance to win .Have a fantastic day.
(
Wanda Flanagan 2:04pm September 8, 2012)

Peggy, take a leap of faith. A couple of my very "male" friends read the book and never read a single romance. They LOVED it, and apologized to me for being such idiots. ;-)
(
Victoria Roberts 2:08pm September 8, 2012)

Thank you, Wanda. Thanks for stopping by.
(
Victoria Roberts 2:09pm September 8, 2012)

Diane, Chelsea and Colleen, making these Bad Boys were a lot of fun.
(
Victoria Roberts 2:10pm September 8, 2012)

Kilts and misbehavior by men, what's wrong with this picture? Or more likely what's right and intriguing?
(
Alyson Widen 2:14pm September 8, 2012)

I like how you think, Alyson.
(
Victoria Roberts 2:32pm September 8, 2012)

Lots of bad boys aren't really bad--just portray that image to act tough and in charge, when deep down they can be just the opposite. When I was young (around 7th grade), I used to get picked on by this 9th grade tough boy, named Skinner, when I played at the school playground across the street from my house. His sister was always with him and she was the instigator. They always told me to get off their playground or they'd beat me up! It came back to burn this leather jacket-wearing tough boy late one night, when he came into our backyard to steal both my sister's and my Schwinn bikes. My mom said to us she could see someone outside taking our bikes. My sister and I ran outside to catch the thief! When we discovered it was Skinner without his sister, he turned into a baby when we yelled at him. Then we gave him a couple punches and told him never ever to try to steal from us! This scared him so much, he never teased and taunted me again, after he found out how tough we were!!
Hope I'm not babbling and getting off track from your book.
I love the cover, and your book sounds like one I'd have fun reading and find captivating. I'd could enjoy my bad boy more in a book than in real life! Thanks!
(
Linda Luinstra 2:41pm September 8, 2012)

I married a former bad boy and we had thirty years together before he died suddenly at 56. I often told him if I'd known him in high school, I'd have had nothing to do with him!
(
Theresa Hurley 2:43pm September 8, 2012)

I LOVE BAD BOYS ESPECIALLY WHEN THERE IN A KILT ITS HOT. LOVE
TO WIN AND READ THIS BOOK IT SOUNDS FANTASTIC.
(
Shelly Caggiano 2:49pm September 8, 2012)

Love a guy in kilts!!!
(
Nancy Ludvik 3:26pm September 8, 2012)

Bad boys can be either bad or good. It all depends on who they are underneath all that swagger and bravado!

This sounds like a great book. Going on my TBB list right away!

Later,

Lynn

Lynn Rettig 3:51pm September 8, 2012)

(
Carole Fiore 3:55pm September 8, 2012)

Oooh! Do I detect a hint of naughty in Rosalia? Ciaran may
be a bad boy, but it sounds like he's met his match with a bit
of naughty in Rosalia! This sounds like a fantastic read! I
can't wait!
(
Amy Rogers 4:09pm September 8, 2012)

It's the adrenaline rush you get with a "Bad Boy" that attracts. The excitement and the element of danger. I married one, had two wonderful, beautiful, kids by him, then divorced. I fell in love with him when I was 16 and it took ten years of madness to finally get out. I'm not saying that some bad boys won't reform. I like to think we have reformed rakes here in America too, LOL!
(
Leah Weller 4:16pm September 8, 2012)

There's something about the bad boy that only the right woman can redeem. Of course, when he's Scottish (and in a kilt), that only makes it better!
(
Janie McGaugh 4:49pm September 8, 2012)

Lo lvoe to read about the bad boys...and this sounds like a great book to read!!! Count me in!!!
(
Bonnie Capuano 6:05pm September 8, 2012)

I don't know what it is, but I looooove stories set in
Scotland. Maybe it is the kilt.
(
Michelle Whitwam 6:13pm September 8, 2012)

Gotta love guys in Kilts.
(
Pamela Fox 6:26pm September 8, 2012)

"My what huge hard muscles you have"
"All the more for you to hold onto as I use them to flip,
lift, and turn you in the most tempting ways"
"My how your kilt parts in the most seductive ways when you
move"

A strong willed damsel in distress. A hard body bad-boy
highland warrior.
"All the better to give you a glimpse of what you can look
forward to, my dear"
"My what a deep voice and captivating accent you have."
"All the more to take you over the edge when you make me use
it to call out your name"

A strong willed damsel in distress. A hard body, bad-boy
highland warrior. Your TEMPTATION IN A KILT sounds
delicious. I kept imagining Ciaran's voice as I read your
above excerpts. Think Sean Connery, Henry Ian Cusick, Ray
Park, Ewan Mcgregor, Gerard Butler, and ...*swoon*

Bad boys rock my world!
(
Darci Paice 6:28pm September 8, 2012)

I love reading about bad boys being tamed by a good woman, but It never works out that way in real life. Its the fantasy I love to read about.
(
Carol Woodruff 7:18pm September 8, 2012)

there's just something about a man in a Kilt. I don't read as much historical as I used to but I still love anything to do with mid-evil Scotland, England, & Ireland. Thank you for the opportunity to enter your contest. God bless and have a wonderful weekend
(
Pat Moore 7:32pm September 8, 2012)

Bad boys are always in fashion. The more the merrier, at least for dreams and fantasies..
(
Holly Vanderhule 8:04pm September 8, 2012)

And just how is a girl supposed to keep her eyes from HIS kilt? Really! Thanks for the giveaway!
(
Jennifer Beyer 8:52pm September 8, 2012)

i love bad boys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(
Jennifer Beck 8:58pm September 8, 2012)

Bad boys make for delicious reading. Not great at all in real life.
(
Mary Preston 10:31pm September 8, 2012)

I love reading about bad boys. There's just something about them that gets my motor running. LoL
(
Kristin Bingham 11:20pm September 8, 2012)

I love the bad boys with redeeming moments - makes them human.
(
Barbara Hanson 5:29am September 9, 2012)

My husband is Scottish but doesn't wear a kilt, he says you have to have the legs for it. So I will just have to keep reading your books to top up on kilts!
(
Clare O'Beara 6:44am September 9, 2012)

Gotta love a man in a kilt!
(
Vicki Hancock 9:46am September 9, 2012)

Bad boys can come in a range of "naughtiness"...it's that they don't (or don't always) fit/follow the whole being proper and meeting expectations as they are being true to who they are. Sort of a declaration of their alpha/manliness.
(
p c 12:07pm September 10, 2012)

I love my bad boys, they are a fav. to read about!
(
Jolene Allcock 1:14pm September 10, 2012)

I think having a bad boy in my life is a way of rebelling against my parents and friends that I can be independent. Otherwise, I wouldn't be able to take that first step.
