"An exciting Highland adventure with sensual and compelling romance."--Amanda Forester, author of True Highland Spirit on Temptation in a Kilt
He was a Highland Rogue Wicked with a Bow and Just as Wicked with the Ladies.
Declan MacGregor hadn't a care in the world beyond finding a soft bed and a willing woman...until he had to escort Lady Liadain Campbell to the English court. The woman needles him at every turn, but he can't just abandon her to that vipers' nest without protection.
She Never Asked for a Bodyguard...
Liadain wasn't thrilled to be left in the care of her clan's archrival. It was as if the man never had a lady tell him no before! And yet as whispers of treason swirl through the court and the threat of danger grows even sharper, her bitter enemy soon becomes the only one she can trust...
In Roberts's serviceable sequel to Temptation in a Kilt, a Highland warrior in 1604 is ordered by King James to marry a Lowland bride. After winning an archery competition, the roguish Declan MacGregor learns that his prize is both the castle of the traitorous earl of Argyll and the earl's half-sister, Liadain, a beautiful healer whom many believe to be a witch. Though mightily attracted, neither wants the marriage. Declan isn't happy to end his wenching ways and Liadain knows it, which results in lots of brogue-heavy bickering. There's also a plan afoot to kill the king and lots of interaction with characters from the first book. Some may find the accented dialogue appealing, but in many places it slows down the narrative. The story is redeemed by Roberts's deft hand at humor and the relationships among Declan, Liadain, and Declan's many charming relatives.

This is an enjoyable story with a suspenseful story line and a cast of fun and lovable characters but was a bit of a slow read. Declan does not want to escort Liadain to English court but with no family left, but he can’t just abandon her to that vipers’ nest without protection. Declan and Liadain had great chemistry. Declan's protection of Liadain at court which she felt was unneeded, their banter and sexual tension was fun to read. The secondary characters to me made this book more enjoyable. Declan's brothers Ciaran and Aiden and their wives Rosalia and Aisling also James Montgomery are from the first book "Temptation in a Kilt". I'm looking forward to reading "To Wed a Wicked a Highlander"
