Sultry Scale:

Laird Magnus Sutherland loves women. His prowess in the bedchamber has earned him the name Devil of Dunrobin, but no woman has ever stirred his heart. Magnus needs to provide his clan with an heir, which is the only reason he agrees to marry the neighboring chieftain's sister. When his betrothed arrives, he discovers the chieftain has two sisters. If Magnus must bind himself to one woman, he intends to discover which is best suited to be his wife, for he wants more than a body to plant his seed. He wants a mate for life. 

There are three reasons Lady Effie Reay refuses to vie for Laird Sutherland's affections... For one, she is thirty-two and would surely lose a competition to her beautiful, younger sister. Secondly, Laird Sutherland is a well-reputed rake, and she holds no desire to wed another faithless man. And thirdly, the sight of him makes her tingle, shiver and ache. Will Effie be successful in thwarting Magnus' advances, or will her body succumb to a temptation that can only lead to heartbreak?

Well this was not what I expected when I picked it up. Admittedly, I didn't pay attention to the page count, so I didn't realize it was a short story. I thought I was starting a historical Scottish romance, but this is actually more historical erotica.

I liked both our main characters, despite the story length preventing much character development. I'm not a huge fan of short stories, but this one was a decent little steamy read. It's the perfect length to grab before bed, particularly if you are wanting to get in the mood for some sexytime.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
