Lottie Livingstone from Lismore island is trying to save her family by taking their illegal whisky to Denmark to sell so they can pay their back rent. Her father has been severely injured, and her 2 younger brothers are not a lot of help. Selling the whisky is her last hope.
Aulay is beyond angry when he is knocked out and tied up in his cabin. Lottie’s men are unable to handle a large ship so some of his men are sailing the ship. She promises she’ll pay them when the whisky is sold. Docking in Denmark, Lottie and Aulay go to find the supposed buyer only to find a den of thieves. They make it back to the ship and head back to Scotland as they don’t have enough supplies to last them all the way to Amsterdam. Lottie’s father has died and must be buried at sea.
The crew think a ship is following them but can’t see it at first. Trying to outrun the ship trailing them in the fog, his ship sunk but they made it to shore. Aulay lost everything and will now have to repay the man whose cargo he carried. He decides they will walk over the hills to Balhaire, his family home.
There is so much more happening in this book, but if I told, it would make this a very long review and I do not want to spoil this wonderful book for anyone who reads this. Julia London is a wonderful author, and this is a book I can highly recommend.
The heroine, Lottie Livingstone, bears the responsibility of her clan. She and her clan set out, via the sea, to sell a shipload of illegal whiskey. When an attack leaves them vulnerable, she transforms from a maiden daughter to a clever warrior. For survival, she orchestrates the siege of a rival’s ship and now holds the devilish Scottish captain Aulay Mackenzie under her command.
Tied, captive and forced to watch a stunning siren commandeer the Mackenzie ship, Aulay burns with the desire to seize control—of the ship and Lottie. He has resigned himself to a life of solitude on the open seas, but her beauty tantalizes him like nothing has before. As authorities and enemies close in, he is torn between surrendering her to justice and defending her from assailants. He’ll lose her forever, unless he’s willing to sacrifice the unimaginable…
I highly recommend Devil in Tartan, book 4 of the Highland Groom series. Although the previous books are keeper shelf material as well, you can read this one as a stand-a-lone, or in order of the series. You will find yourself marking the calendar for future books and release dates from Julia London. Anyone who enjoys historical romance will auto-grab romances written by this superb author.

Her characters are complex and compelling and very far from the normal fare of romantic heroes and heroines and yet they are very much romantic characters. I was in awe of Lottie Livingstone and the extent to which she would go to for her family. Aulay McKenzie is just as strong though, and oh so believable.
This story is packed with twists and turns and unexpected events. I read it in two sittings because I just couldn’t pull myself away from it. I can’t begin to say how much I enjoyed it other than to say it was a truly fascinating read.
Aside from the story, at the end of this book is a glossary of terms and a brief author note. I loved that the story was peppered with Gaelic and Danish language and while I found it easy to get the gist of what was being said because of the context, I really enjoyed going through the Glossary afterwards.
