    I think the author forgot to create an actual plot for this book. I mean, Clara has a fake pregnancy and Hunt has a curse on him and they marry each other without first revealing the truth about either of those things. That isn't a spoiler because it's in the blurb. So what happens next? A whole lot of practically nothing. Then you get an epilogue which is basically just a desperate attempt to interest the reader in reading the next book in the s...

This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.This Scot Of Mine is the fourth book in Jordan's "Rogue Files" series and I have had a blast with this book and its my favorite of the series so far.

    I’ve been reading all of the books in this series and this one was definitely my favorite. I really liked Clara and Hunt. They’re both so stubborn and so sassy. I was amused by their push and pull and how much they fought being together. It was fun to see Marcus and Alyse and I’m intrigued about Marian. Plot wise, it was fairly quick moving. There’s a good amount of traveling, but it didn’t feel repetitive. The curse was sort of weird t...

    This Scot of Mine: The Rogue Files by Sophie Jordan is book 4 in The Rogue Files Series. This is the story of Clara and Hunt. I have read (and Loved!) the previous books, but feel you can make this a standalone book if you wish to do so. Clara faked being pregnant to escape being married to a man she didn't want. Clara is exiled and runs to her brother, The Duke of Autenberry is Scotland. Along the way she meets Hunt who turns out to be her broth...

    2.5*I received an eARC at no cost from the author, and I am leaving a voluntary and honest review. Thank you.Review will be posted at my blog, Romancing Romances, on March 26th. Review Link. This book didn’t start in the best way. I was really excited to read it, since I really like the author, but it just didn’t meet my expectations.Everything felt too rushed, at the end of the book I would not be able to tell you more than one or two charac...

    This was a quick and satisfying historical romance read. I feel like I know what I am getting with a Sophie Jordan book and she delivers the story with a feel-good factor. The story was a twist on the normal Scottish Laird with a bunch of chemistry and superstitions thrown in to meddle.Clara was in disgrace and sent to her brother, the Duke in the highlands. Except her disgrace wasn't what it seemed and somewhat of her own making. Lies turn into ...

    I received an ARC of this book through Edelweiss.I have read other books by this author and so was looking forward to reading this book. I was very disappointed, however. The story was disjointed, the characters were flat, and the plot was weak. I almost did not finish it, but plowed on.The story begins with Clara headed to Scotland after fleeing London from the scandal of informing her betrothed that she is pregnant with another man's baby. On h...

    **3.5 Stars**What would we call this trope? The reverse secret baby trope? Idk but it was a unique premise that I enjoyed! One of the best parts of any Sophie Jordan novel is how readable her writing is. I would sit down with THIS SCOT OF MINE, and before I knew it, I was at 25%.The book follows Lady Clara who has had to uproot her whole life and move to Scotland to live with her brother after a scandal in England. On the way, she meets a rowdy S...

    This is my second pregnant lady marries a Scot this year!But this one is different. She told her fiance she was preggers to get away from him. Maybe you should have run away instead of ruining yourself and your family. Women! But Clara did have a good point for getting away cos he was not a nice man. So hide in Scotland with her brother is the answer.Hunt was all Scot. I liked that. But he also deathly afraid of a curse, and from what I saw, that...

    Original review on Julalicious Book ParadiseAll the books in the Rogue Files are standalone, but really, it helps to have read the first books in the series to get a bit of background.So let’s get started on this review.I won’t lie; I think that this book was my favourite of the series so far. It was quite different from what I had read so far and I found it quite refreshing.Clara has run to her brother’s estate in Scotland after the scanda...

Marcus, the Duke of Autenberry wants to help his sister and mentions her situation to his friend, Laird Hunt MacLarin, who immediately offers to marry her.

    Her need to get away from the Earl of Rolland was so great, that Lady Clara Autenberry deliberately ruined herself by telling him she was expecting another man's baby. Clara then fled to her brother's in Scotland to live out the rest of her life in spinsterish misery. If only she had not met that brawny Scot, Laird Hunt MacLarin. Hunt is an honourable man, he would have loved to have a family of his own, but there is that curse that has plagued t...

    A fun read, but I think that the book 'lost the plot,' quite literally. While I love the idea and the concept of this book, nothing really happened and it seemed like any semblance of a plot was missing -like the curse, for example. Shame, because of I could have done with a lot of more Laird Hunt in my life.

    Lady Clara Autenberry is completely disenchanted with her unpleasant fiancé. She devises an unusual plan. She tells him that she is pregnant with another man's child. This ruins her in his eyes. What's more is she is ruined in the eyes of society, so Clara flees to Scotland, to the hone of her brother, Marcus, the duke of Autenberry, and his wife, Alyse. She may alwas be a spinster, but at least the ruination and unavoidable gossip won't follow ...

    Those of you who know me know I love a good historical romance. Historical romance in particular is what I read when I am in a reading slump, or when I am in between holds at the library. I find them to be quick, entertaining, and intellectually engaging. In the world of romance, Sophie Jordan is on my auto-buy list, along with Sarah MacLean and Eloisa James. I hope you’ll go and check out her works if you’re thinking about diving into histor...

    I received an ARC of this book to read through Edelweiss Plus in exchange for a fair review. This Scot Of Mine by Sophie Jordan is the fourth book in her Rogue Files series. It can be read as a stand-alone but I recommend reading the series as it’s very enjoyable. When the true character of her betrothed becomes clear to her Lady Clara Autenberry unable to get out of the engagement any other way has let it be known she is ruined. Banished to he...

    Lady Clara Autenberry is ruined by her own hand, with help from a less-than-savory former fiancé. Discovering far too late that her betrothed is not what he seems and not being able to reconcile her soon-to-be life with her own example of love and happiness in her family, she pretends to have strayed and become pregnant, all for him to drop her. Of course, being the age it was, the plan works, but Clara is ruined and the subject of gossip and sh...

    I received a free copy of this title to read and review for Wicked Reads 5 Stars This Scot of Mine is the 4th installment of The Rogue Files series, and I can attest to the fact that it can easily be read as a standalone. When I sat down to review this title, I made the surprising discovery that I've only read installments 2 & 4. In the future, I plan on going back to book 1, rereading 2, and so forth. Lady Clara is embroiled in several scandals ...

    I like Sophie Jordan's books, but this one felt lazy, like it was a novella originally. For all the talk of Clara's despicable fiance, I expected him to make an appearance, but all we get are vague references from Clara about how evil & cruel he is. However, we never meet him or get any specific examples of what he's done that warranted Clara claiming a lie so ruinous she exiles herself rather than marry him. Apparently talking to ANY of her lovi...

    This was a quick read, but there were too many little things I didn't really like.I never felt the true romance between Hunt and Clara. There was a lot of telling us how much passion, but not a lot of show (and I'm not talking about the steamy scenes, which were pretty good). Months of time went on and their relationship, as we are told, builds, but we weren't really given any scenes showing us little moments between Hunt and Clara. I don't feel ...

    3.5 stars. Solid writing of fun characters who had their moments but weren't given enough space to shine in this slightly undercooked story line. The book is based around a curse. The thing is, that curse is never explained or examined again for out clauses or loop holes. No one looks at the specific wording; or questions it's meaning. To be honest I couldn't remember the exact wording when it does come up through the story. That bugged me, as I ...

    I was so excited to start reading Clara and Hunts' book. I was a huge fan of Clara in the last book and I wanted to see how this character journey of romance. I really enjoyed these two characters and Hunt is really hot. However, this trope was not new for me and I would like to have seen it with a twist. Sophie Jordan is one of my auto buy and I will continue reading her work. If you like historical romance with highlanders and marriage of conve...

    The ninny and the hunk In order to escape an engagement to a despicable man, Clara pretends to have gotten pregnant by another man. Putting a notice in the newspaper announcing the end of the engagement or asking her family for help were apparently not considered. Now a ruined woman, she travels to Scotland to live with her brother. On the way she meets the hunk - I mean Hunt. It’s lust at first sight. There’s a curse, deception by almost eve...

    A lovely unique story, even sexy, once you get past the deception subplot. Hunt and Clara’s meet-cute was fun and after the explanations, they’re actually great together. I loved the Carpe Diem mindset in view of the curse and I cheered at the improbability of the happy-ever-after ending. Also, gorgeous cover.

    Not Very Satisfying The whole story revolved around the curse of the McLarin Lairds, it was intriguing at the beginning and the characters were engaging enough. It would have been good, if they have explained how did they break the curse. The prologue was about it, I was hoping that the epilogue would be the conclusion. Alas, in the end, it’s only all assumptions on the readers part. Maybe because Hunt married her when he thought that he was pr...

    **I received a complimentary copy of this book via Edelweiss+ but all opinions provided are my own. 4.5 StarsFor much of this book, the main characters are consumed with thoughts about impending death—specifically, death caused by a centuries-long curse—and yet Sophie Jordan’s This Scot of Mine gave me so much happiness, both reading the book and later, when I found myself daydreaming about a HEA fiercely fought for.There’s something abou...
