Review: Stolen by the Scottish Rogue by Madison Faye

stolen by the scottish rogueTitle: Stolen by the Scottish Rogue

Author: Madison Faye

Year of publication: Out today! I was kindly given a copy to read and review.

The heroine: Ailith Pembrose

The hero: Lord Malcolm McAuley

The blurb: Honestly, it’s just common sense: don’t ever, for any reason, fall in love with a pirate. No matter how tempting or toe-curlingly gorgeous he is.
And especially not when he steals you from your own wedding…

One minute, I’m being married off to a horrible, cruel man to sweeten a family business arrangement. And the next? My wedding yacht is being stolen, with me on it, by the powerful, roguish Highlander, Lord Malcolm McAuley.

Former pirate. Ex-soldier. Full-time scoundrel. He also happens to be toe-curlingly gorgeous, sinfully tempting, and utterly irresistible.

I should want nothing to do with the crude, filthy-talking alpha who’s stolen me from my own damn wedding. But the more I tell myself no, the more I want to tell him yes—to anything he wants…

Anything.

Losing myself in those piercing blue eyes and wickedly perfect lips is dangerous. Giving in to his filthy words and pulse-quickening touch is a sin. He tells me I’m his, and the most sinful thing of all?

…I’m pretty sure he’s right.

Standalone or series: This is book two in the Kilts & Kisses series, but can be read as a standalone.

The review: We met Ailith in the previous book in this series and learned she was betrothed to a man much older than her to be his fourth wife, the previous three all having died mysteriously at a young age. Not exactly a comforting thought, but Ailith has no choice – her father has made a business deal and she cannot refuse.

While on her groom-to-be’s boat getting ready for the ceremony while everyone else waits for her on the dock, Ailith is horrified to find the boat suddenly moving… with her on it. Once she runs up to the deck, she discovers the boat has been commandeered by Malcolm, a close friend of her friend Una’s new husband. It seems that Malcolm has decided to claim Ailith as his bride and isn’t going to let a simple thing like her engagement to another man get in the way. And Ailith isn’t about to protest too hard, because she is drawn to the rugged, attractive Scotsman who has spirited her away.

Will her former groom just let her go? Will she marry him or Malcolm? And how does the mysterious Viking Tor play into everything? You’ll get (most of) the answers in this steamy novella.
