He's the terror of the ton...

The plan is simple:
1. Descend from the Highlands to face the aggravation of a London Season;
2. Foist his wild sister off on some gullible English lord;
3. Retreat before the ladies of the scandalized
ton can get any ideas.

Determined to see his hellion of a sister wed, Highlander Alexander Waters is willing to face anything—even the English. He just didn't expect his own rough manners to cause such a riot...or for a blooming English rose to catch his eye.

Gently bred Catherine Middlebrook must find a respectable man to marry or her family will be ruined. She won't allow herself to be distracted by Highland barbarians...no matter how her body may thrill whenever Alex is near.

Catherine wasn't part of the plan, but as their battle of wills escalates, Alex comes to realize this "proper" English girl is as wild as the Highlands themselves...and nothing will stop him from having her.

(Broadswords and Ballrooms, #1)

How to Seduce a Scot (Broadswords and Ballrooms, #1)Ahhh, romance with a volatile and passionate Highlander as he attempts to catch the attentions of a prim and proper, as well as very inexperienced English lady. Alexander was only putting up with the social niceties to marry of his sister, Mary; little did he know that a sweet English girl would scorch his heart with her hidden fiery side.

How to Seduce a Scot by Christy English is equal parts humorous, romantic and heated chemistry. After a steady build up, there are many times that the secondary characters steal the scene with their antics. Alex and Catherine fight attraction with a battle of the wills, but who will win? Will the lady tame the Scot or will ignite her inner wild child in heated passion?

A good read, with stellar scenes, but when I read about a Scot, I feel the passion they portray, the chemistry was wonderful between these two, but they lacked that heated passion I was hoping for, the passion that makes one swoon and sigh. But trust me, those secondary characters are going to get their turn at love and I see fireworks exploding!

I received this ARC edition from Sourcebooks Casablanca in exchange for my honest review.
