This Scot of Mine by Sophie Jordan (Review)


Finally decided that This Scot of Mine by Sophie Jordan need to be read. I have to say this was an interesting read, and of course I'm jumping into a middle of the series. A couple of reasons why I chose this book: 1) The author is amazing. I have enjoyed previous books of hers. 2) THE COVER. That is probably the main reason. I'm sucker for a red dress on the cover. SUCKER! Moving on my reasons for picking this book, and writing what makes this interesting read. 

We have Lady Clara who decides that she needs to cuckold her vile fiancée, and makes him believe she's with child from another man. Vile fiancée believes her, and disgraces her. Now she needs to run up north where she will be safe from ridicule of the Ton. Her whole family believes she's pregnant, and they are trying to figure out who to marry her off. All Clara wanted was peaceful life in Scotland, and be the amazing aunt everyone wants. Marcus has other plans for her, and he finds the perfect gent for the part, Laird Hunt MacLarin.

Hunt believes that his family is cursed. Each of the previous Laird MacLarin never saw the birth of their babes, so he has decided to never get marry or have bairns. He has a sweet deal going on with barren widow, why mess it up. However, he gets an opportunity to be a father without being the natural father to Lady Clare's bairn. Actually pretty ingenious, except for the fact she's not pregnant. 

This is where the story gets interesting. Boy does some crazy stuff happen, and due to a curse. There could have been a curse, but some of things could be explain through logic. However, logic does take a backseat in this story, because we have a CURSE. It's interesting how they break the curse. I'm still not sure on that, but he it was a pretty good read. If you are looking for cursed fellow, and fake pregnancy, you don't have look to far with This Scot of Mine. Honesty I couldn't put it down. I needed to know if he lives or dies. It was a pretty fun read, and I felt bad for Lady Clara.
