They haven’t quite managed to tame her wild streak.

It is to be The Match of the Season. At least, that’s what Lady Carlotta Merritt, sister to the cool and aloof Duke of Cashingham, has been told repeatedly by her mother. The Dowager is beyond thrilled about her daughter’s engagement to Society’s most eligible bachelor, Lord What’s-His-Face. Carlotta, on the other hand, would much rather be gallivanting around her brother’s Yorkshire estate, falling out of trees or fishing in the streams or reading one of her naughty books in the shade on a summer day.

But her mother has made it very clear that she’s to behave herself, as befitting the sister of a duke, and Carlotta has been trying, honest. But when Mother is called up to Scotland, she invites Carlotta and her fiancé to follow…sans chaperone. That’s when her brother volunteers his own brother-in-law—the illegitimate Scotsman with a charming grin, a wicked reputation, and battered hands which make Carlotta think all sorts of wicked thoughts—to tag along.

And he knows all the best ways to be wild.
Keith Oliphant knows exactly who he is; the natural-born son of an earl, a close friend to the laird of his clan, and the best damned bare-knuckled boxer in all of England and Scotland combined. These hands of his have done things most men can only imagine, and now they face their biggest challenge yet; holding the safety of a duke’s sister, one whose smile and love of adventure make him yearn for things he can’t have. Especially since she’s engaged to the complete clot-heid who is sitting between them in the coach.

Aye, this journey to Scotland will be a difficult one, despite the opulence of traveling with a duke’s sister. Between his impossible desires, Lord What’s-His-Face the fiancé, and Carlotta’s own wild streak, Keith suspects he’s facing his biggest challenge yet: when he delivers Carlotta to the duke, will she still be a virgin?

The Duke’s Virgin Sister, Book 1 of Those Kilted Bastards series, was about Lady Carlotta Merritt, younger sister to the Duke of Cashingham, and Keith Oliphant Carlotta was not happy being engaged to Alfred "Freddie", the honorable Baron Dongel, aka "Society's most eligible bachelor", and heir to the Earl of Blasingcourt. In her mind, he was known as "The Idiot", for he could spout such nonsensical statements that proved to the Ton he had not a lick of intelligence. However, her mother was excited about her betrothal and declared it to be "The Match of the Season". When her family decided to travel to Scotland to join her brother's in-laws in celebration of his wife's 30th birthday, Carlotta was forced to stay behind in order to attend a ball with her betrothed before traveling a week later. To protect her reputation...and to keep her from creating some sort of scandal. Carlotta, having been known to get into one scrape or another over the years, was under strict rules to NOT cause a scene on the trip, even though her mother had sought to have her travel alone with her fiance. However, her brother had other ideas and had hired his wife's illegitimate Scottish brother to travel with them as a chaperone...and to ensure she arrived in the same condition in which she left London, untouched and unscathed. When things went horribly wrong, Carlotta and Keith set out on horseback hoping to reach her brother in time to keep the peace. However, as they got closer to the Duke, the more dangerous the journey got...and they just went from bad to worse. The angst and drama were both volcanic and sometimes heart-wrenchingly bad. However, the humor? Oh.My.Word! It was phenomenal! I don't believe I have laughed so hard when reading a novel as I did reading this book. The "naughty bits"? Those were a welcome tease to the passion that was evident between the two main characters. It was definitely a rom-com story, and quite enjoyable. The characters were well-developed and quite realistic. Reading the puns, the "inappropriate" jokes passed around by all made the story all that more entertaining. The scenarios that Carlotta and Keith often found themselves in were attention-grabbing and made it difficult to put the book aside. This was definitely worthy of a five-star rating and to be added to the Keeper for the Shelves collection.
