My only negative is that a historical book about Scots should have braw laddies in kilts. This book did not. But it did have a hot as hell alpha male!
Our heroine, Gillian is the ungifted sister. Both of her sisters are gifted with some type of magic. She doesn't understand why she does not hold some type of magic ability, but she isn't sure if her lack of magic is a good or bad.
Our hero, Nicholas Lyon, Earl of Kincreag hates magic. He also hates marriage, but he owes a debt to Gillian's father. He pays his debt by marrying Gillian. But he is determined this marriage will not include love.
Of course with any good romance, Nicholas and Gillian finds love. The road to love is exciting! I adored the way the author was described their feelings. I could see their love growing!
The heat level is medium. I would have enjoyed a bit more sexy time, but that is a personal preference.
The paranormal part is not so out there. So even if you're not in the mood for paranormal My Devilish Scotsman will hit the spot!
It tells the story of Gillian, the middle sister, who thought she had no magical powers. Promised by her father to a friend of his in France, she wants to stay in Scotland to be near her family. She is delighted when her sister's marriage provides her an opportunity to marry the Earl of Kincreag who had been promised to Isobel initially.
I thought this book moved at a slower pace than the first and frankly, I did not like the Earl nearly as much as Philip in the first book. Among other things, he was a hypocrite. I also though that Gillian was weak and I'm not fond of weak heroines. When she thought the potion worked and that was why he was so responsive to her, I actually thought the story proved the opposite. He treated her too badly to be influenced by a love potion unless you consider only lust. So, to me, this story in the series was a bit disappointing. Still, it is necessary to read it if you want to get to the third book, My Shadow Warrior. And, if you like ghosts and stories of treachery and betrayal, you'll like this one.
This is Gillian's story, the only member of the family without a mystical gift. Her dying father's wish is for her to marry Nicholas. I was enchanted by their love story. Even though Gillian doesn't have mystic abilities that doesn't stop her from using witchcraft to her advantage in capturing Nicholas's heart. As the story progresses so does Gillian's understanding of her own supernatural talents.
The paranormal twists throughout the book were engaging. There were a few inconsistencies that had me turning back pages to figure out what was going on. Not enough to distract me for long. I too would have appreciated even more of Gillian and Nicholas's love story. The ending was darker than the rest of the book. I wished for more time with the main characters to have them bring light back into their world. All in all this was a great book I will read again!
