Ready for a sexy, hilarious romp? Meet the Oliphant brothers, and their brides!
Laird Oliphant's sons have to get married. Without an heir, the laird has gathered his sons--his six illegitimate sons, all born in the same year--and declared whoever presents him with a grandson first will become the next Highland Laird.
A Scot Mess
To Finn Oliphant, his father's ultimatum is exactly the news he's been hoping for. You see, Finn has already chosen his future wife:the vivacious and intelligent Fiona MacIan, whom he fell in love with the previous year. He knows she's in love with him as well, so this whole "marriage ultimatum" thing should be easy-peasy. He'll simply invite Fiona to Oliphant Castle to sign all the betrothal contracts and... Bam! Done! They can get on with the baby-making!
It's not that Fiona is getting cold feet, exactly. She's fairly certain she loves Finn. Mostly. Well, verra likely,at least. But she's never been the most self-confident woman, especially compared to her sister--her identical twin sister--whom Finn happens to mistake for Fiona upon their arrival at his keep, which is super-awkward all around.
The idea of marrying Finn makes her feel all warm and giddy--hopefully that's just lust, not the ague--but how can she be certain he truly wants her, and not just any woman?
It's hard enough to be certain of anything on Oliphant land, especially with Finn's mad Aunt Agatha spreading rumors, five potential brothers-in-law offering terrible advice, and a mysterious ghostly drummer keeping the entire keep awake at all hours.
And mayhap Finn should've mentioned his identical twin brother as well? That information likely would have saved everyone a lot of headache...and a lot of heartbreak.
Finn and Fiona have plenty to learn about themselves, and one another, before they can be certain this marriage is a good idea. But unfortunately, they're running out of time. Dun-dun-duuuuuuuun!
Warning... This comedy of errors is not for anyone who can't handle the following: plenty of naughty scenes, more than a few anachronistic jokes, and an embarrassing number of mistaken-identity gags. Only pick up this book if you have a sense of humor. You've been warned.
Scot on Her Trail
Duncan Oliphant's father has insisted he--and all of his brothers--marry and start producing grandsons...like, yesterday. And Dunc is having none of it. All he wants in life is a small cottage behind his forge, and enough gold and silver to craft delicate, valuable jewelry.
But he is the laird's son, albeit illegitimate, and has a duty to do. One he's happy to postpone as he takes one more commission which has him traveling across the Highlands, gold in hand.
Which is, of course, the most awkward time to be attacked by Highwayman.
Even worse if it's not a man at all, but a Highwaywoman...a gorgeous, feisty one he accidentally kissed a fortnight ago at his brother's wedding.
What is Skye Duncan doing robbing unsuspecting travelers? The only way to discover the truth--and get back his gold--is to kidnap the highwaywoman and offer a trade. Aye, this will go swimmingly.
...until it doesn't.
Because Skye clearly isn't some meek, delicate lady. And despite their rocky beginning, she can't ignore the way Duncan's kisses made her feel, or how his offered solution might just be what she needs to hang up her sword for good.
Can a goldsmith with simple wants make peace with a determined Highwaywoman, for the sake of their clans' futures? Or is the gulf between them--and their history--too much?
And whatever did happen to all that gold?
Pick up the second book in the riotously funny The Hots for Scots series, and get ready for a rollicking good time!
Getting Scot and Bothered
Rocque Oliphant has simple wants: a fine sword at his hip, a good meal in his belly, and a lusty wench by his side. His position as the Oliphant Commander, leader of men, ensures the first, and his long-term affair with Merewyn, the clan healer, ensures the second and third. She brings him joy--and pleasure--in ways he used to only dream of!
Aye, things are going well in his life...right up until his father--the laird--demands he marry and start producing grandsons. If he wants to beat his brothers at a chance for the lairdship, he needs to find a willing woman to bear his sons--and fast!
But Merewyn, stubborn lass, refuses to marry him, and won't tell him why. Even worse, Rocque can't imagine spending his life with anyone else! If he can't marry another lass, and the one he wants won't marry him, does he have a chance of becoming his father's heir?
As the Oliphant healer, Merewyn knows she's valuable. She knows she doesn't need to marry...except for love. And Rocque, stubborn idiot that he is, won't tell her his true feelings. Can she be blamed for saying nay to his proposal? But now she's running out of time, and has to either tell him the truth or cut him free, because in a few months, everyone in the clan will know her secret!
Rocque might have more brawn than brains, but he knows no lass will hold his affections the way Merewyn does. But is he prepared for the battle it'll take to prove that?
Warning: contains naughty bits. Lots of them. Ridiculous amounts. Also: characters and conversations which are funny enough to make you spit out your tea. For the sake of your Kindle, do not drink liquids while reading this book. That is all; carry on.
In Scot Water
Malcolm Oliphant is, beyond a doubt, the brains of the family. Since his father--the laird--announced that whichever of his sons could marry and produce a son first would become the heir, Malcolm's brothers have been running around, falling in love willy-nilly, without using their brains at all. But not Malcolm, oh no. He plans to do this intelligently.
He'll find a widow with a son or two--thus proving her ability to bear male offspring--and explain to her they will be married. See? Simple. No need to bring emotions into it.
But when he finally meets the woman, there's no logical explanation for the way his heart keeps getting involved. It would be so much simpler if the stupid organ would just simmer down, but have YOU tried explaining things to a hunk of meat whose sole purpose is moving blood around? Impossible!
Get ready for another dose of silliness (with plenty of naughty bits thrown in) from the Oliphants in this laugh-out-loud series!
