***Review posted on The Eater of Books! blog*** A Scottish Lord for Christmas by Lauren Smith Book Three of the Sins and Scandals series Publisher: Forever Yours Publication Date: December 5, 2017 Rating: 5 stars Source: eARC from NetGalley Summary (from Goodreads): The best gifts come wrapped in a kilt... Beautiful Lady Rowena Pepperwirth can have any man her heart desires. Unfortunately no gentleman has elicited even the slightest flutter—until she meets the brooding Lord Forres at a holiday house party. With just one look at the dashing Scottish lord, Rowena suddenly knows what she wants for Christmas. Quinn MacCauley, Lord Forres, is in need of a wife.

Maybe I'm in a very Christmas-y mood? Maybe I've been in a reading slump and this book has me feeling more confident in my reading? Maybe it's just Lauren Smith's amazing stories? In any case, I loved this story. Quinn and Rowena are a fantastic couple, and their story is tugged at my heartstrings and made me sigh happily. I read A Gentleman Never Surrenders earlier this year and really enjoyed the story. This new book is about Rowena, the younger sister of the female protagonist in the previous book. Rowena is eighteen, a new debutante, and a sweetheart. She is very caring and kind - and she is fascinated by Lord Forres. Everyone knows about s fly whenever he and Rowena are around each other. Quinn can't help but be drawn to her, even if he thinks he isn't ready to love again. But what if he is? I actually loved both characters equally, which is surprising because usually I like one more than the other. Rowena is so sweet and selfless, and she really wants to share her life with someone else, and have many children. She has a kind, good heart, a gentle nature, and a tenacious will. Quinn, on the other hand, is the strong silent brooding type. He rarely smiles but he is very polite and formal. He needs a wife and mother for his daughter, but he isn't ready to love anyone yet. Quinn is selfless in his own ways, and very protective. But he also never tries to change Rowena or command her. He is so considerate of her feelings and thoughts. Quinn is a really good guy and the type of alpha male that I absolutely love. The two of them together are really cute, but also super hot. They meet at an event for the debutantes, and they connect instantly. They have a great emotional/mental connection, but also a physical. There are some very steamy times between them! They have great chemistry. It takes some time, but they grow to love each other. Their relationship is really sweet. My heart broke for Quinn and his grieving heart, but I was so happy whenever he let Rowena in. Don't get me wrong - the romance is sweet and wonderful. It took Quinn longer to let himself love her, but he definitely did from the start. Read the rest of my review on my blog, The Eater of Books! - eaterofbooks DOT blogspot DOT com :)

I just turned the last page and although sorry for it to end, I am left with a smile and a warm feeling. This was a really special story of a lost heart that longs to be whole again but almost refuses. The Pepperwith's were having a holiday house party and only wanted their two daughters to be happy and find he right match. Lady Rowena, was greatly admired but had not met anyone that she felt a strong attraction. That is until she met Quinn MacCauley, Lord Flores while saving his daughter from an accident in the water fountain! Quinn had lost he beloved wife just over a year ago when she perished in childbirth, along with a son. Still heartbroken, he knew he needed a wife but only wanted a marriage of convenience. Well best laid plans are often visited by fate and there is no going back. What an appealing story that tugs at the heart and pulls you into a world of enchantment. Lauren Smith is a master of the historical romance and this novella is no exception!!

when rowena saves a little girl from falling into a well, the last thing she expects to happen is that she'll meet the man of her dreams. it's her first season, and she is looking for love. a sweeping, romantic love. and from the moment she meets lord forres, she's halfway there. but quinn has already had that kind of love in his life. his late wife was the woman of his dreams. she was the girl he spent a lifetime loving, and it was cut tragically short. he's not interested in finding love. he just wants a woman to help him raise his daughter. a woman to keep his house. a woman who will keep him company. he knows that rowena wants love. and even though that's the last thing he wants to give her, he discovers that he is just selfish enough to want to keep her anyway. quinn needs to realize that the heart is more resilient than he gives it credit for. that the capacity for love is boundless. and that if he lets himself believe these things, what he can build with rowena is something beautiful. this was a sweet short story with some real emotional depth. **a scottish lord for christmas will publish on december 5, 2017. i received an advance reader copy courtesy of netgalley/grand central publishing (forever) in exchange for my honest review.

5 - "I finally have my Christmas wish." Stars! The third novella in Lauren Smith’s Sins and Scandals series takes us to the wilds of Scotland, and once again the author gave me a story I couldn’t put down, and read in one sitting. We met Lady Rowena Pepperwirth in the previous book, and I was interested to see how her story would play out. And her sweet innocence was the perfect contrast to the burly, emotionally closed off Quinn MacCauley; Lord Forres. "I believe you would suit me very well." A widower with a young daughter, Quinn is initially on the hunt for a mother for his daughter, believing that a man cannot experience love with a woman twice in one lifetime he puts his own wants and needs to the side in favor of his daughter; Blair. He could only give her half of what he craved… Seduction but no love. After a quickie wedding the couple return to his Scottish home and it doesn’t take long for Rowena to work her way through his carefully constructed defenses. "I found you." Loved this novella, loved that it had a little Christmas magic and sparkle thrown in as well, and the addition of a cute little girl didn’t hurt either. Lauren excels at writing Historical Fiction, and A Scottish Lord for Christmas was another perfect example of that awesomeness.

Lauren Smith has a way of tapping into emotions, not easily revealed. From secret fantasies to heartbreaking realities, she gets to the heart of the matter. Risque royals, secret liaisons, emotional entanglements and page turning action make for a tempting brand of storytelling. A Scottish Lord for Christmas takes the ethereal beauty of a chance meeting and turns it into a sensuous dance of the heart. Classic Lauren Smith.
