Lottie Livingstone bears the weight of an island on her shoulders. Under threat of losing their home, she and her clan take to the seas 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…

In Devil in Tartan (The Highland Grooms #4) by Julia London, Lottie Livingstone will do anything to save her family from losing their home, but she never imagined herself illegally commandeering a Mackenzie ship captained by Aulay Mackenzie, a man she finds intriguing and soon falling in love with. But with her enemies closing in, will Lottie and Aulay achieve their happy ever after; or will they do everything they can to protect the other, even if it means walking away from love and happiness?

Having not read the other books of this series, I was so glad that this one could be read as a stand-alone, and I loved how this book started with what happens between the hero and the heroine that makes the hero realize he should never let his guard down. Will he be able to find a way out of the situation he finds himself in? Will the heroine be able to earn forgiveness from the hero for what she does?

As for the dialogue, it was intense and entertaining due to the main characters back stories, as the heroine is desperate and really believes she has no other choice but to do what she does to the hero. Furthermore, I really enjoyed both the main characters and the obstacles they face on their journey to happy ever after including whether the hero will have the heroine prosecuted and whether the heroine will get in trouble with those that sent her and her family fleeing their home in the first place. Really, the heroine is resilient and determined to take charge once things begin to go south. Yet, what I liked most of all about the heroine was her determination to take responsibility for everything she does and her determination to make things right for Aulay after what happens, even though it seems impossible that she'll ever be able to make things right. 

While the hero, it was hard not to be affected by his back story, as the sea and sailing has always given him what he needs because he's never really felt like his family are proud of him. I also liked how he handled everything he goes through, even though his pride has taken a major hit because of what happens at the beginning of this story. Yet, what I liked most of all about the hero was how protective he was of the heroine, especially when trouble gets closer for the hero when it comes to the person that could take her family's home. 

Overall, Ms. London has delivered a really good read in this book where the chemistry between this couple was intense because they're enemies; the romance was delightful and had me liking this couple together; and the ending had me loving the hero's determination to prove to the heroine that she's the one for him. I would recommend Devil in Tartan by Julia London, if you enjoy Historical Romance, the enemy to lovers trope, or books by authors Christi Caldwell, Suzanne Enoch, Cathy Maxwell and Jess Michaels.
