Stranded with a Scotsman

My pick for this Friday’s quick review is Stranded With a Scotsman by Serenity Woods http://www.serenitywoodsromance.com/, which I can’t stop thinking of as “Scot in a box” thanks to this review by Ruthie Knox http://www.ruthieknox.com/2012/05/what-to-read-wednesday-make-me-and-stranded-with-a-scotsman/.

Stranded With a Scotsman is set in a high-tide look-out off the Scottish shore. The setting is vivid. Serenity had me smelling the not so sweet tide, feeling the hard walls of the spartan, roofless shelter at my back, and shivering with delight at the sweet honesty of what happens between Cori and Ewan in that little box between island and mainland. My favorite scene involves the cutest game of Truth or Dare ever committed to the page.

Enjoy these lines from Stranded With a Scotsman and fly over to Amazon to snap up your copy of this delightful indie for only $0.99 http://www.amazon.com/Stranded-with-a-Scotsman-ebook/dp/B0082FVQ6C/.

And now she was in a predicament. Because she was stranded with the Scotsman in a ten-by-four-foot wooden box until the tide retreated. By the end of that time, chances were she would either have killed him or kissed him.–Kindle Locations 89-90.

   Grumbling under her breath, she retrieved the waterproof coat and gave it to him.
   He studied it. “I need something to attach it to the walls with. Have you got any string?”
   “No.”
   “Elastic bands?”
   “No.”
   “Cotton?”
   “No.”
   “Dental floss?”
   “Do I look like a walking chemist?”
   He eyed her. “Do you still wear g-strings?”
   “Ewan!”
   “Well, do you?” –Kindle Locations 173-185.

When they’d dated, even though she was eighteen, she’d been little more than a girl— naïve, innocent, looking up at him with puppy-dog eyes. Now, she was a woman, with a woman’s desires, and her fantasies went beyond kissing.–Kindle Locations 581-583.

“…There are worse things in life than being stranded with a Scotsman, anyhow.”–Kindle Locations 996-997.

About Jessi Gage

Jessi lives with her husband and children in the Seattle area. She’s a passionate reader of all genres of romance, especially anything involving the paranormal. Ghosts, demons, vampires, witches, weres, faeries...you name it, she’ll read it. As for writing, she's sticking to Highlanders and contemporaries with a paranormal twist (for now). A career student (aka indecisive and inquisitive bookworm), Jessi brings her love of research to her worlds and characters. Her guiding tenet in her writing is that good always trumps evil, but not before evil gives good one heck of a run for its money. The last time she imagined a world without romance novels, her husband found her crouched in the corner, rocking.
