DEVIL IN TARTAN Synopsis:
Lottie Livingstone bears the weight of an island on her shoulders. Under threat of losing their home, she and her clan take to the seas to sell a shipload of illegal whiskey. When an attack leaves them vulnerable, she transforms from a maiden daughter to a clever warrior. For survival, she orchestrates the siege of a rival’s ship and now holds the devilish Scottish captain Aulay Mackenzie under her command.
Tied, captive and forced to watch a stunning siren commandeer the Mackenzie ship, Aulay burns with the desire to seize control—of the ship and Lottie. He has resigned himself to a life of solitude on the open seas, but her beauty tantalizes him like nothing has before. As authorities and enemies close in, he is torn between surrendering her to justice and defending her from assailants. He’ll lose her forever, unless he’s willing to sacrifice the unimaginable…

I love an adventure romance book and The Devil in Tartan is all that and more. It is also about family, the deep abiding loyalty to those linked by blood and by clan. This is my first Julia London book, as well as a different sort of Highlander story than I have previously read, so it posed some challenges for me initially, as I wasn’t fully acclimated with the series backstory. With that it took me a bit to gain some traction with the story and to connect to the characters.
That said, once I did, it was a really good story and the characters pulled me in. There are lots of characters and names to keep track of, but the two most important to remember are Lottie Livingstone and Aulay MacKenzie. When they come in contact with each other, the sparks fly like a winter fire and you will be unable to turn away.
Lottie Livingstone is a Heroine whose fierce loyalty to her family is the catalyst for this book. Even in moments of doubt, she commands her space as if she were born to it. But her true magnificence lies in her warrior spirit.
Aulay MacKenzie is a man who wishes to be worthy of his father’s pride, as well as to be equal to his siblings. Continuing the family’s seafaring enterprise is how he attempts to get a seat at the proverbial table. Its when things go awry that we see Aulay for the man he really is.
This is ultimately a cat and mouse game, with many players. Loyalties are tested, but in the process the hearts of two adversaries are connected, making for a love story that will leave you smiling.
Laurie’s Rating: FOUR STARS
