I just finished reading "X Marks the Scot" by Victoria Roberts.
I really enjoyed Ms. Roberts's first book "Temptation in a kilt" of her Bad Boys of the
Highlands and was not disappointed with this one either.
I loved her characters Declan MacGregor, a Rogue and Liadain Campbell, a Healer.
His two passions in life are womens and drinking. He feels misunderstood by all.
As for her, she leads quiet life as a healer for her people, but she is also a sharp tongue woman.
Ciaran, Declan's brother, gives him the mission to protect Liadain. Declan meet her again during a bow challenge with some of his friends and begins to be puzzled with her. Because of her brother's wrong going, she is stuck at court as a ward and feel she does not belong there. Her true mission is to heal people.During a bow challenge, Declan wins the tournment and gains the Campbell's castle and the King order him to marry Laidain. Both are not thrilled with this decision but decide to make the better of this arrangment. But under a Rogue mask, Declan is a very kind and passionnate man who loves dearly Laidan. To know more details, please read the book. You should read Ms. Roberts's first book to fully understand the dynamic of the MacGregor family. If you love a marvelous Scottish adventure, then this book is for you. Very well written by this new author! If you are a fan of Highlanders and Warriors you will live a great adventure and will not be disappointed! I will definitely be reading more books by Ms. Roberts.I devoured this book! I highly recommend this Scottish romance! I can't wait to read her third book "To Wed a Wicked Highlander"
Liadain, as the sister of a clan leader who was killed for treason, is at court waiting for the king to decide her fate. As a healer she is always quick to help others but rumors of witchcraft begin to place her life in danger.

Declan is a rascal and a lady’s man. He escorted Liadain to court and now feels responsible to remain and watch over her until a decision is made regarding her future. She is lovely but her independent nature and resistance to his obvious charms has him rankled.

While passing time, Declan is approached by several other men to participate in friendly games, particularly archery where his skills lie. The men talk and pose questions that could raise issues of treason. Declan dances a fine line away from the political and religious pitfalls that surround the court.

Liadain’s first love, who abandoned her without a word, suddenly appears at court with a very pregnant wife. Liadain is stricken to see Robert but can’t turn away when his lady wife needs assistance. The King throws a celebration to honor Robert. An archery contest, with a fine purse prize, is part of the festivities. But Robert convinces the King to add a greater prize for the winner – the forfeited lands of Liadain’s brother.

A twist of fate, through more whispered hints, result in forcing Declan and Liadain to wed. Neither is pleased to be hastily pushed into marriage and anger, resentment, frustration and misunderstandings mar their mutual attraction. Liadain particular despairs of winning Declan’s heart.

When the King is nearly assassinated by a long distance arrow, Declan is the prime suspect. How can Liadain save the man she has come to love when the traitors are using Declan as a pawn?

There is fun banter between Liadain and Declan but I had some difficulty with Declan’s character which is mercurial as he runs from playful and tender to angry and outright cruel. There are, somewhat usual, conflicts associated with insecure emotions from a forced marriage. The romance is written nicely with good tension. I enjoyed the intrigue in the traitors’ plots that adds some substance beyond the romance. The story is enjoyable but I just didn’t find it special. Still, if you enjoy Highlander stories I think you would enjoy this.
I received the title from Sourcebooks for an honest review.
I have read two of her books, her first one , "Temptation in a Kilt", and this second one, "X Marks the Scot". I enjoyed both of these books a lot and would recommend them to any reader of historical romance novels. The plot in the "X" story was very interesting and kept me enthralled. The characters were all well defined and kept entertained and I found myself chuckling throughout the book, laughing at the antics of her very descriptive escapades. I personally think her second book is better than her first, even though I thought her first book was good. For a fairly new author with only three books to her credit, (as far as I know), she writes very well. The only real problem I had with both these books was not enough intimacy, especially in the first book. So I am very curious about her third and last book, "To Wed a Wicked Highlander", hoping it has improved even more than her second did from the first book. Stay tuned for further reviews! Happy reading!
