    Stick with it

    I used to love reading historical romance, and this book reminded me why. It took me a little while to get into this book, but when it did it grabbed me and didn't let go. I think every character had their high and low points, there were things I loved and hated about all of them, I think that's what made them even more relate-able . I really didn't think these characters were going to get their HEA and I can admit I was losing faith, but sticking with this book to the very end was so worth it. I spent a large part of this book with my heart in my throat and fighting back tears, again it was worth it! I haven't read any of the other books in this series and now I have to!

    Sadly, my least favourite of the series so far.

    I received an eARC at no cost from the author. Devil in Tartan is the fourth book on the Highland Grooms series, by Julia London. Having read the first three books, it’s impossible not to make comparisons between them. Sadly, for me, this was my least favourite book. It had an interesting premise, and I liked Aulay, but I just couldn’t connect with Lottie. Lottie is described as strong, courageous, fearsome woman, but even if she was trying to do her best to save the (illegal) family business, she just didn’t act nor did justice to her descriptions. She was, no doubt, intelligent enough to use her pretty face to fool men, but that didn’t make me like her more – it actually made me like her less. And Aulay, although I did like him more than Lottie, he too was a bit of an empty character. He was a painter, which I liked, but felt it wasn’t explored enough. I liked that Julia London mentioned his role in the family, how he felt, because that made me connect with him more, but it just felt like it was lacking something. I liked revisiting characters from the previous books, but it was for such a short while that it wasn’t enough to save the book from a simple 3 star rating. I just couldn’t connect with the characters as much as in the previous books, and I felt that with both Lottie’s crew and Aulay’s crew always around it felt a bit too crowded and there were too many characters (and sometimes I even got confused with who was whom – and I read the book in just two days, and rarely get lost in these books, but with this one it was hard to remember all the minor characters). Julia London’s writing isn’t being put in question here, she was as good as always, I just felt like she tried to put too much in one book and ended up not focusing enough on what was really necessary. Still, it was a different read, and I managed to enjoy parts of it.

    Entertaining

    I received an eARC for an honest review. I have read the first three books in this series, and I was really looking forward to this book. Lottie and her family are entertaining to say the least! Lottie is trying to save her family, Aulay and his crew happens to cross paths with Lottie and her family. Aulay’s pride takes a beating, when Lottie and her family commandeer his boat. As much as Aulay wants justice the sparks fly between them, as he helps Lottie and her family at the expense of his cargo and ship. As much as I loved reading about Aulay and see a side of him that his family didn’t get to see, this wasn’t a favourite for me.

    She stole his ship and captured his heart.

    Aulay Mackenzie is a kindhearted soul who wants to help save his family and clan. Having never fit in with his boisterous family, he’s only ever felt comfortable behind the wheel of his ship. The sea is his mistress. Lottie Livingstone has been mother and mistress to her clan since the age of thirteen. She puts the needs of her family and clan before her own. Having no female figure to guide her, she has run a wee bit wild and refuses to be reined in In an effort to fix the trouble the Livingstones have found themselves in, once again due to the latest scheme her father has concocted, Lottie finds herself, her family, and her clansmen on a sinking ship. Unfortunately for Aulay and his men, theirs is the first ship that finds Lottie and her crew. What ensues after is a fiery battle of wills. Julia London’s fourth book in The Highland Grooms Series is another wonderful story of finding love where you least expect it. I love how Lottie is a spitfire and confounds Aulay at every turn. I’m pleased that Aulay got his story. He intrigued me very much in Hard-Hearted Highlander. Julia is a wonderful storyteller and I enjoy well the verbal sparring and twisting plot that kept me on the edge of my seat. I hear the next book is about Catriona. I can’t wait. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated for my review, and I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed here is my own.

    Oh but I love Lottie

    Sometimes when I read these Highlander romance novels I am taken aback by the meek women I cannot relate to... not so here. A strong female protagonist guides this story to its unlikely conclusion.
