X MARKS THE SCOT
Victoria Roberts
 
 
Declan MacGregor is a handsome, carefree ladies' man, used to women falling all over themselves for him, but he feels responsible for the half-sister of his clan's greatest enemy, Liadain Campbell.  After her brother was killed by Declan's brother, Liadain was brought to the English court and made a ward of King James.  Declan keeps a close eye on Liadain, because he knows of the intrigues and back-stabbings that occur at court.
 
X MARKS THE SCOT is an enjoyable historical romance with interesting characters and great historic details.  Declan is a slick ladies' man, who fights the thought of marriage.  At first, I didn't care too much for Declan, because he could be something of a jerk, but he grew on me as the story progressed.  Liadain makes a great heroine, because she is strong and caring-- a healer with many admirable qualities.  There are several humorous parts in this story.  I, especially, enjoyed the way the MacGregor women silenced their men's questions.
 
Overall, X MARKS THE SCOT is a nice read, which contains a lovely romance intertwined with historical details.  I learned a few things about King James' rule, that I never knew.
