The Sinful Scots Blog Tour: Review + Giveaway!

Welcome to my post for The Sinful Scots Blog Tour! I have a review coming up, as well as a giveaway for copies of Sinfully Yours and The Warrior's Bride. But, first, allow me to introduce the books:

Sinfully Yours (Hellions of High Street, #2)
Release date: February 4, 2014
Publisher: Forever
Genre: Historical (Regency) Romance
Series: Hellions of High Street #2

After an eventful Season, Anna Sloane longs for some peace and quiet to pursue her writing. Though her plots might be full of harrowing adventure and heated passion, she'd much prefer to leave such exploits on the page rather than experience them in real life. Or so she thinks until she encounters the darkly dissolute-and gorgeously charming-Marquess of Davenport.

Davenport has a reputation as a notorious rake whose only forte is wanton seduction. However the real reason he's a guest at the same remote Scottish castle has nothing to do with Anna . . . until a series of mysterious threats leave him no choice but to turn to her for help in stopping a dangerous conspiracy. As desire erupts between them, Davenport soon learns he's not the only one using a carefully crafted image to hide his true talents. And he's more than ready to show Anna that sometimes reality can be even better than her wildest imaginings . . .

The Warrior's Bride (Lairds of the Loch, #3)Release date: February 25, 2014
Publisher: Forever
Genre: Historical (Highlander) Romance

But for reasons Rob refuses to share, he turns down Andrew's request and vows never to wed.

Lady Muriella never wanted to take a husband, but after seeing her two older sisters happily settled, she's beginning to think marriage may have its merits. When she learns that Rob has refused her without even knowing her, she becomes determined to seduce him into changing his mind. Then she will be the one to say no to him. But when she's captured by her father sworn enemy Dougal, both land in more trouble than either had anticipated.

My Rating for Sinfully Yours: 5 Roses

A lovely, enjoyable romance, Sinfully Yours was a wonderful read. I loved this book. It had sweet and hot romance, thrills, and a compelling mystery. I thought it was a fantastic historical romance read.

Anna was a lovely heroine. She was very clever and determined. Nothing could sway her when she set her mind to something. And, she was the kind of person who could think herself out of a situation. I really liked her. I thought she was great.

Devlin was wonderful. He tried to act the dissolute rake, but he was really sweet. He was more clever and loyal than he let on, and not someone to be underestimated. I adored him. He was a perfectly flawed hero.

The romance was lovely. Anna and Devlin were sweet together. On the surface, they look like total opposites, but they were a perfect match. And, the sparks between them were constantly flying, whether they were fighting or...doing something else. I thought they were perfect together.

The plot was fast paced and I was hooked the entire way through. There were tons of thrills as the characters tried to find the culprit behind the assassination scheme and that kept me on the edge of my seat. I definitely never guessed who it turned out to be. It took me by surprise when I found out. I really enjoyed the story and the ending was lovely. I can't wait to read Caro's story in the next book!

Sinfully Yours was a wonderful historical romance. I absolutely loved this book. From the romance, to the mystery, it was all fantastic. Romance lovers, this book is a must read. 

*I received a free copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review
Up for grabs to one lucky winner are a print copy of Sinfully Yours and a print copy of The Warrior's Bride. US only. Ends February 23.
