Her Kilt-Clad Rogue by Julia Moffett

Her Kilt-Clad Rogue by Julie Moffett
* I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

Englishwoman Genevieve Fitzsimmons never expected she’d return to the wilds of Scotland. And she certainly didn’t expect to become governess to the son of Connor Douglas, the man with whom she shared her first kiss and her first heartbreak. The man who still intrigues her…

For Connor, duty means everything. Years ago, it forced him to break Genevieve’s heart and marry another woman—one who made him miserable. Now a widower at odds with his son, he’s determined to put his heart first.

As Connor and Genevieve begin to find their way toward a future together, they can’t escape the past. Someone is bent upon revenge against Connor and his feelings for Genevieve make her the perfect target.

Genevieve has just lost her beloved grandfather and has lost her home.  Salvation comes to her in the form of someone from her past.  She is offered a job as a governess for Ewan, Conner Douglas’ son.  She didn’t know that she was in for the challenge of a lifetime; can she survive Conner and his son?

Conner has never forgotten Genevieve and the summer kiss they shared.  He fell in love with her that day but was duty bound to marry another for the good of his country.  Now he is widowed and raising his troubled son.  He is determined to follow his heart this time, if he can convince Genevieve he’s not the rogue everyone says he is.

I really liked Genevieve’s character.  She was English and didn’t let anything deter her in the hostile environment she was in.  She knows that she doesn’t have anywhere else to go if she fails as a governess for Ewan.  She is still in love with Conner but she refuses to allow herself to be hurt again by him.  She is strong and a good match for Conner.  Her relationship with his son was special and I enjoyed watching it grow.

Conner has always done what was required of him, including marrying someone for the good of his lands.  He has been in love with Genevieve for years and he is determined to make her his.  It was amusing to watch him bumble through the “courtship” even though she didn’t realize that’s what it was.  He was not good at expressing his feelings because he has had to hide them for so long.  He is impressed at the progress she is making with his son and happy that she is there, even if she still believes all the stories she has heard about him.

I enjoyed the story and thought it flowed well.  The main characters were interesting and had depth.  It was fun to see their growth and interactions with each other.  The secondary characters provided more insight and background into the main characters.  Ewan was such an important part of the story too and seeing the transformation from troubled youth to Laird’s son was amazing.  He was really just a scared little boy that craves his father’s love.  The housekeeper was a pleasant surprise.

It was easy for me to see the scene around me because the author did such a wonderful job of describing everything.  There was an adequate amount of backstory to keep the reader informed without overpowering them.  The ending was a nice surprise, I honestly did not see that twist coming but it was definitely a good fit.

Overall I enjoyed this book and give Her Kilt-Clad Rogue 4 Flaming hearts.
