Her Kilt-Clad Rogue by Julie Moffett


Her Kilt-Clad Rogue
 
Summary:
 
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.

Those of you who have been following my reviews for a while know that I am not a fan of novellas in general so I was totally surprised by how much I enjoyed Her Kilt-Clad Rogue when I read it last weekend.
 
Admittedly, I picked up the book on a whim and wasn't expecting to like it at all but I ended up enjoying it a lot. The novella centers around Genevieve Fitzsimmons a first time governess who has had to turn to working due to family debts and much to her chagrin she ends up taking a position in her teenage sweetheart's castle who abandoned her, married another woman and had a son.
 
So as you can figure poor Genevieve is having a rough time of it already and now she has to deal with Connor's unruly son Ewan as well as feeling for her old flame who is acting rather strangely. I really liked Genevieve's character a lot. She was smart, witty and was a woman who knew what she wanted. Plus she wasn't afraid to stand up for herself and Ewan when the time came.
 
Connor was a bit of an enigma in the beginning of the story and I wasn't sure if I liked him very much in the beginning but as the plot developed I liked him more. He had the weight of the world on his shoulders and when the big mystery behind his wife's death came to fruition things that were keeping him and Genevieve apart were resolved.
 
I also really liked Ewan. He was a little boy trying to be a man dealing with the sudden suicide of his mother at what he thought could have been his father's fault as well as being governed by a English woman, and dealing with a stuck up woman who was intent on taking his mothers place. He had a lot going on and I'm glad he and Genevieve were able to become friends despite his earlier reservations.
 
The overall plot was very well developed especially for a novella. I wasn't expecting there to be as strong of a story as there was given that the story was just slightly over 103 pages in length. There was a lot of components to the story and the author didn't rush into the romance aspect Her Kilt-Clad Rogue. I thought every thing went together so well and I was pleased at how the story played out. I was also pleased that the characters were as developed as they were.
 
As a first time reader of Julie Moffett I have to say that the author did an awesome job hooking me onto her writing style and I can't wait to read many more books by her and hope that she continues writing for a long time to come.
 
I would highly recommend Her Kilt-Clad Rogue to all historical romance fans out there. I think this would make for the perfect afternoon read curled up on the couch as it rains outside with a cup of hot tea on the side table and a pet in your lap. Or anytime really. Especially if you're looking for a quick, well written read.
 
Loved it!

    beautiful worth sufficient for me. Personally, if all
    site owners and bloggers made excellent content material as you probably did,
    the web will likely be a lot more helpful than ever before.
