Overview

A man who only believes in fact.

Even after everything the Clan has endured, Angus has always held onto his scientific leanings. He isn�t a believer of instant attraction, so, he is surprised by the force of his attraction to Irishwoman Maggie O�Conner. He doesn�t trust her, but she soon become an obsession he can�t seem to shake.

A woman who defies every logic.


Single mother Maggie comes from a long line of magickal women, but she walked away from that part of her life. When Angus bursts into her life, she tries to ignore the handsome Scot, but soon finds that she needs his protection. She knows he�s not normal, but she never expected him to be the one man who could capture her heart.

A passion they could not deny.

As they work together, their need for each other threatens to consume them both. But just as they close in on the next jewel, a new enemy emerges and puts everything they hold dear into jeopardy.

An over 200 year old curse, a yummy KILT wearing Scot, magickal theif & evil stalking them, plus it's a PANTIE DROPPING HOT READ! In 1746, Logan drug his brother, Angus, to the local witch & Angus' world was rocked to the core. This witch tells him that "When man can fly... a Redhead woman, plus 1, will test his heart & soul." Now it's 2014 & Angus, Logan & their Cousins Callum, Fletcher & the only female Anice (poor girl) are all still alive due to The Curse. To stop it, all of them, the whole McLennan clan, must reclaim a gem for the Bruce Sword & then they can actually die. Callum found the diamond & his wife Phoebe & now it Angus' turn to get his gem, an Emerald, & will need a little help from a magick woman & he really hates magick anything. Angus is a man of science & if he can't touch, study or learn about it, it doesn't exist. This from an almost 300 year old yummy man, so stubborn. Maggie O'Conner lives for 1 thing, her son Jack. She will kill for her son & has been on the run (from Jack's Father's family), since Jack's father mysteriously death during a failed jewel heist. Maggie is from a long line of Magick women, but her pregnancy made all her powers burn out. Jack is 4, but acts like he is 80, has endless power running just below his skin, has visions that always come true & lately he tells her that a man is coming to save them. She has been living in NYC, working in a Pub, but feels the itch of trouble coming, so when a Pantie Dropping Scot walks into the Pub, she knows its time to run again. Angus stares at Harriett (Maggie's fake name) with her boring brown eyes & hair, but when they touch a hot sexually surge goes their blood stream & kicks in their mutual LUST into overdrive. As soon as she is able, Maggie flees out the back door, but after she gets home guess who comes knocking. Jack flies to he door & says, "Sir Angus, you are here!" Mother Bear goes into protection mode, but all Angus does is offer a job of stealing the Emerald & she agrees to think about it until tomorrow. After he lives, she packs, but a huge man breaks in, Sir Angus comes to the rescue & with some magickal help throws the man out the window, but gets up & walks away. So off to Edinburgh, via a private jet (a Scot got to have style), they go. Maggie & Master Jack are welcomed into the Lennan (their 2014 name) clan & plan the heist, but first Maggie has to regain control of her unexpected powers. As her powers grow, her hair turns curly & YES red & her eyes go to blue, green or blue green. Poor Angus only gains a white hot glowing LUST for his little witch, but fights it with his science & Maggie's lust is on nuclear meltdown. When Angus does make his move, he goes for her lips & a$$ & says HELLO to any available surface. Maggie breaks free of all her excuses & attacks her sex-on-a-stick Scot & welcome his lips, tongue & other Angus' parts. So they have a jewel heist to pull off, old enemies afoot, Maggie's sensual bites to Angus' lips, Jack's uncle rooming about, magick growing stronger in Maggie, a welcomed female siren, idiotic male family fists fights, Angus' inner caveman stalking Maggie, an mysterious & evil Benefactor, Phoebe mothering everyone, a loveable half fae looking for trouble & the 18 wheeler of pure LOVE wrecking both Maggie & Angus' world. Can Angus kiss his science to he curb for his little witch? Will Maggie embrace her true soul mate? How will they all protect young & powerful Master Jack? Will Master Jack get his dream castle? Please can Fletcher get a little half fae in his life? This is my 1st romance read from Ms. Schroeder & dang it was a PULL THE FIRE ALARM HOTNESS read & I am hooked! Maggie is a kick a$$ & take no names kinda of girl & an amazing Mother Bear. I could feel her motherNESS flowing all around her son & that made me love her even more. Angus was an unusual Scot of his time (1700s) & loved science & men of science are stubborn & unbendable, but I think it just made him sexier. Ms. Schroeder gave birth to hero & heroine that fit together like a puzzle, but one of those 10,000 pieces kind, were you sometimes pound & pound, but the pieces don't want to fit. Jack was such a little old man with an ancient soul, but without him this story would not of been complete without his Fairy Goddude in-training. Ms. Schroeder build such a loveable clan with such different personalities that made each character unique, but so needed & this clan ravaged my heart & will never let me go & I am fine with that. I couldn't imagine or even stand to be with my loveable & difficult family for over 200 years because we would kill each other. All romance reads need passions, desires, no just plain super FIRE EXTINGUISHER worth scenes & Ms. Schroeder delivered that & more, so I was so glad my South Dakota coolness was aplenty tonight! But this story would not be a true Scot adventure without a KILT wearing Scot & YES Ms. Schroeder had yummy Angus wear his scandalous KILT to dress up the Emerald heist. So in case my romance peeps can't tell, I did drag out my KILT, wrapping it around myself, climb up the tallest steps (I just have a deck with step) & shouted to all in South Dakota, "I am the newest Melissa Schroeder fan & so should y'all!" I must give Ms. Schroeder my top score of 5 fingers up & 10 toes & throwing in my furry reading buddy's 4 paws! NetGalley ARC given for my honest review.

Hot, hunky, sexy, immortal Highlander. I can't ask for anything more when I am present with a super hot, sexy, immortal 'Highlander'. I love Highlanders of any era. Schroeder has given me a man (& clan) that I can get behind and read to the very end. Angus is a sexy Highlander with a scientific mind. He needs tangible proof. Instant attraction of the forever kind is not on his radar or in his scope of logic. This all changes when he meets Maggie. Maggie and Jack changes Angus' pov in a big way. He finds himself doing things he never before thought to do. This ride is filled with ups-n-downs, ins-n-outs, all to make the quest worth the journey. Take it and you will not be disappointed. It is best to read the first book but you will not feel at a loss to start right here with Angus. Schroeder give me more than one hot, sexy highlander to sink my teeth into. This may be my first read of hers but it will not be the last. I will most certainly go back and read Callum (bk1) in this series.

I love everything I've read by Melissa Schroeder and "Angus" is no different.  The second book in the "Cursed Clan" series sucked me right in and I read it in two sittings.  I love these highlanders and I can't wait for the next book in the series to come out.

This isn’t a case of opposites attracting as they have more in common than Angus would like to admit.  I really liked the characters of Maggie and Jack.  Melissa Schroeder has a gift for putting characters in stressful situations and having them come out better and stronger together.  And though Angus isn’t the McLennan my heart goes pitty pat for he is one fine Scot.
