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.

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?”
“Do I look like a walking chemist?”
He eyed her. “Do you still wear g-strings?”
“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.
