Good beginning to a legacy of the McKenzies. Not as good as Cailean's parents story (Arran and Margot) but I liked both Cailean and Daisy. JL needs to find a husband for Belinda.

In Sinful Scottish Laird, the feisty and rich Lady Chatwick meets the sensual and seductive Laird of Arrandale, Cailean Mackenzie. Lady Chatwick, Daisy Bristol has two choices to make within three years:  1. Find a suitable husband or 2. Don't choose a husband. If she doesn't choose a husband within that timeframe, she will lose her son's inheritance. At first, she isn't sure what she should do; then a letter from her childhood beau helps her to decide to head to go back home...to Scotland, right next to Cailen. Cailen is undoubtedly attracted to Daisy, but, he's fighting against his feelings because he doesn't want her anywhere near him or his estate; due to her being a Sassenach. There is no way he's giving in to the attraction he feels or feeding the frenzy of sensual emotions sparking between them. But when her old time love shows up, Cailen realizes he cannot escape his feelings and makes plans that don't involve Daisy ever leaving his neck of the woods. I loved reading this book. It has a great plot, memorable characters and the heat of a delectable romance. After reading book one in this series, I decided to read this book, the second in this series. Another hit and has solidified my decision the read the rest of the Highland Grooms series. Do I recommend this book? Yes, yes and yes again. I believe all romance readers would enjoy this book by Julia London.

Lady Daisy Chatwick and her son travel to Scotland to evade the men who are vying for her hand and her fortune. When an accident causes a break in their travels, several Scottish riders come to their aid and Daisy is stunned by the sheer masculinity of the Scottish chieftan standing in front of her. Her old flame Captain Robert Spivey comes for a visit and offers her his hand in marriage. Even at sea, he has learned of the stipulations Daisy’s late husband has placed. She finds that Rob is not the old Rob she fell in love with and he can’t compare to Cailean Mackenzie, the man who has won her heart. He will be the father that her son needs.

This is the second story in the Highland Grooms series. Sinful Scottish Laird takes place more than 30 years after the first story and involves the eldest son of the main characters from Wild Wicked Scot. Cailean was spurned by an English lass many years ago and now doesn't trust any English women or his heart. Daisy has been given 3 years to remarry after the death of her husband or lose her son's inheritance but all she encounters are fortune hunters until she receives a letter from an old love. She flees to Scotland to await his arrival when she meets Cailean. The sparks immediately ignite between them along with a lot of other emotions but both must determine where their hearts lie. Added to the mix is Daisy's former love, Cailean's free trading activities and the potential uprising of the Jacobites. This all makes for a thrilling, emotional love story.

With a 3-year deadline to marry (or forfeit her son’s inheritance) drawing near, widow Daisy Bristol flees to the Highlands to escape fortune hunters while waiting for her first love to finish his commission and reunite with her. Her new neighbor, Ceilean Mackenzie, Laird Arrandale offers her a respite from the fortune hunters, who hound her. He unlike the rest of the men sniffing at her skirts, he tells her the truth and isn’t interesting in her money. Ceilean thinks Daisy is a crazy London miss who flirts with all men. Though try as he might, he can’t keep her from getting under his skin. The sexual tension between these two is palpable. I enjoy books with witty banter between the characters. This one has it in abundance. I loved the second installment to The Highland Groom Series. It’s a legacy of love that started with Wild Wicked Scot. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated for my review, and I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed here is my own.

Daisy has a problem, her late husband's will force her to marry within 3 years of his death, or their son loses his inheritance. All the men that surround her want her money not her. But when a letter arrives from a long ago love she must find a way to give him time to reach her before the Bishop marries her off. So, what does she do...she flees to the highlands and meets Cailean. Cailean Mackenzie is stunned when he stops to help a carriage on the side of the road when he sees Daisy. Never has he wanted a woman as much as her. But he has secrets that no one needs to know and he knows that this woman has the power to draw them out of him. He cannot resist the draw and soon finds himself drawn in the family. From her cousin, to her uncle, to her timid and shy son...each one tugs at his heart. He knows that nothing but heartache waits for him, but he can do nothing to stop falling for her and her family. When a sworn enemy arrives on their doorstep, he finds himself caught in a fight not only for himself, but to save Daisy as well. When he refuses to acknowledge that they have a future together, Daisy leaves and returns to England to marry his enemy. Now Cailean must find his way into the lion’s den to claim his woman and make up for his fool mistake, that is if he can survive on enemy soil. Excellent installment to this series. Absolutely love seeing old characters from the previous novel.

I love a good Merry Widow story and if Daisy, Lady Chatwick isn't quite merry she is strong-willed, determined and self-sufficient...mostly. Daisy does find herself being helped out a lot by Cailean, Laird of Arrandale and the sparks fly right off the page. Cailean for his part although his mother is English wants nothing t do with another English Lady, and a high-maintenance one at that. Julia London's masterful writing takes these two very different characters and brings them together in ways that will make you laugh and want to cry. A great second book in the Highland Grooms series, I can't wait for the third.

I do love a resourceful free spirited woman and Daisy fills that position to a "T". Her sensual personality drew me into the plot as I watched her try to work her charms on Cailean. It was smile worthy, reading different scenes with various interactions between the two of them. Furthermore I loved her mother son relationship which was the main theme of this book. This book was an enjoyable read with the back and forth bantering between Daisy and the very handsome Cailean. There were times I laughed and times I got so angry with Cailean I wanted to shake him but I always loved Daisy and admired her spirit. Cailean on the other hand was a sexy standoffish man and it took me a while to warm up to him but once I did I kept rooting for him to open up and realize Daisy's worth. The pace of this book is steady and descriptions were very vivid drawing the reader into the storyline. My only thought is that at times it felt too simplistic to me but those times were few and my overall impression is that this is a very pleasant read and I look forward to reading more books from this author. For this reason, I give it 4 STARS. Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.

This was a really fantastic book. Daisy and Cailean are both well thought out characters. Julia London does an awesome job of making you want jump right into her stories whether it's historical or contemporary. The relationship that Cailean is also forming with Daisy's son through the book was very believable. I love that Arran and Margot were brought back from the first book in the series (Wild Wicked Scot). Bottom line....I have never read a Julia London book that I didn't love.

Sinful Scottish Laird is the 2nd book in the Highlands Grooms series by Julia London. Daisy, the heroine, escapes London to Scotland to avoid getting married until her old beau comes for her hand. Cailean , Margot and Arran's son from the 1st book in the series Wild Wicked Scot, is stubborn heir apparent to his fathers clan wants nothing to do with the English. I loved that we got to visit the MacKenzie clan again and see Margot and Arran persuade their son. The banter between Daisy and Cailean is fun and flirty throughout the book and was wonderful. I also loved that Cailean took an interest in Daisy's son, Ellis, and brought him out of his shell. I can't wait to read Rabbie's story in the next installment.

Daisy Bristol, the widowed Lady Chatwick, has come to the Scottish Highlands to escape the fortune hunters who are courting her. She must marry soon or lose her entire fortune. She needs to consider her young son, Ellis. He's her world. When her first love, Robert, contacts her and wants to offer for her, she's elate but her time at Auchenard Lodge, changes her as well as Ellis. Can she trust Robert? Will necessity force her to return to England and follow her late husband's dictates? Or is her true love here? Daisy is a refreshing character. She's a force of nature who wants to experience life and find happiness. I didn't want her to be used by men to gain power and wealth. She deserves better. I enjoyed her flirtation with her neighbor, Laird Arrandale. He has no love for the Sassenach and wants Daisy gone, but their chemistry is amazing. Their battle of wills and flirtatious banter drew me in. I knew that these two are soulmates. Cailean Mackenzie is stubborn. He won't admit that he cares. I wanted to shake him. I know that he was hurt before, but he needed to move on. I wanted them together. With so many problems I wasn't sure there would be a HEA. Julia London kept me up late. I couldn't put down Sinful Scottish Laird. I loved the larger than life characters, the rugged setting and the passionate romance. I fell in love with Cailean. He's a true hero. I'm loving The Highland Grooms series.

I really enjoyed this story. The attraction between Daisy and Cailean was instantaneous and red hot. The banter between them had me wanting to read more of their story at its conclusion. Like most stories where the H/H split their loyalties between Scotland and England, there are clashes that occur between the families. On top of that, we have Daisy's first love come back into the picture and he just happens to also have a past with Cailean. Overall, a very enjoyable read and I can't wait to read, Hard-Hearted Highlander, which features Rabbie Mackenzie whom we met in SSL.

I've received this book in exchange for an honest review In the second book of the Highland Grooms series, Julia London takes us back to Scotland. In the first book, the main characters were Margot Armstrong and Arran McKenzie. Now, this is the story of their son, Cailean Mackenzie, and an English lady, Lady Daisy Bristol. Daisy is a widower with a young son. When she discovers that he has a small property in Scotland, she decides to take him there, to be away from all her suitors, but also to try and improve the boy’s health. The attraction between Daisy and Cailean is almost instantaneous, but what I really liked was that although that attraction was there, it was more than that. Their relationship was a mix of friendship, love and support. Cailean is great with Daisy’s son, and he really likes him, independently of who his mother is. The possible relationship between Daisy and Cailean is threatened by the Scottish rising (the Jacobites) and the English, which makes it hard for them to be friends, even harder to be more than that. But both Cailean and Daisy are stubborn and know how to fight for what they want. How they manage it, you’ll have to read the book to find out. And believe me, you’re going to like it. Romance, friendship, some passion and lust – these are the perfect ingredients that make the book so easy and pleasant to read. I like Julia London’s books more and more every day.

This is the second book in the series. It's about Arrans and Margots oldest son Cailean and how he finds his true love Daisy. Their relationship is honest and true from the start. They knew where each other stood, no games or secrets. I really liked how Daisy stood up for herself and didn't let anyone push her around for she had more then her share trying to do so. This is a wonderful read and I enjoyed it.

bookaholicAD More than 1 year ago
This was a great read. It was so refreshing to have a heroine who was not a virgin and wasn't afraid to go after the man she wanted. Daisy is a widow with a son. Her deceased husband made a provision in his will that she had to marry in 3 years in order for her son to inherit. Of course, Daisy wanted to take the opportunity to choose for herself, but time was against her. While visiting her son's land in Scotland, she meets Cailean, her hot Scottish neighbor. Well their journey was at times comical and at others heartbreaking. But the ride was well worth the end result. I thought the ending was a little rushed, but I rally enjoyed the main characters and the supporting cast. I definitely recommend this book for anyone who loves highlanders (I mean who doesn't ) and with a little experience under their belts. Enjoy!

Great story! I couldn't put it down and stayed up until 230am just to finish it! Daisy fleas from England to the family hunting lodge in Scotland to escape money hungry bachelors and await her old love. But the Highlands have Cailean and he makes Daisy realize the meaning of true friendship and love.

This is the second book in Julia London’s Highland Grooms series. The hero, Cailean Mackenzie, is the son of Arran and Margot from the first book in this series. At a young age, Cailean had his heart broken by an English girl, who led him on but “could never marry a Scot”. As such, Cailean has no plans to ever wed and is building a home not far from his parents and an unkempt hunting lodge owned by some Englishman. Daisy, Lady Chatwick, a widow with a young son (Ellis), is almost out of time to remarry per her late husband’s will. If she doesn’t marry in the time allowed she forfeits her son’s inheritance. She’s hoping to marry her first love, Robert, a naval officer if he returns in time. Tired of the fortune hunters in London, she decides to visit her late husband’s hunting lodge in the highlands. The lodge is run down, but her neighbor, Cailean, is very tempting. Ellis, a quiet shy boy, thrives in Scotland as Cailean teaches him all sorts of things boys like to do. When Robert arrives, she realizes she can never marry him as she loves Cailean, who vows never to wed. After she has left, Cailean realizes he doesn’t want to live without her. I don’t like to write plot spoilers. There is so much more going on with Daisy, Cailean and the secondary characters that I don’t wish to spoil. I liked catching up with Cailean’s parents from the first book. They helped him see what he was missing. Thanks to the author for allowing me this ARC.

I downloaded this on a whim and was interested by the plot line. I liked Daisy and Cailean. Of course she's outgoing and he's stubborn and it was amusing to read them dance around each other. The banter was fun and the chemistry was off the charts. I especially loved the scenes with Cailean and his mother. At times, the writing was a bit dense and the plot did get repetitive, but I liked where it was going. And I loved the ending. Overall, I'm intrigued at the idea of other books in the series. **Huge thanks to Harlequin Books for providing the arc free of charge**
