Kilted Desire Sands of Betrayal

Sensual! Exciting! Passionate! Scott Maclaren, a strong, Special Forces Scotsman, terribly injured during his tour of duty in Afghanistan. His journey begins with a broken heart after his wife leaves him for another man during his time in the hospital. Traveling across the Atlantic to visit family, his story now begins.

After years of physical therapy and being alone, things were about to look up. Katie Johnson, a beautiful Ohio schoolteacher, was where his ‘dream’ of passion and love were to become reality. Smoldering embers became a passionate, raging fire between them. A wanting and desire that burned for one another as neither had ever experienced before. Scott’s love for Katie and her two girls would lead him to great lengths to make all their dreams come true, including a six-month security contract in the Middle East. The money would ensure financial security for life.

The contract was to secure the safety of a young attractive businesswoman, Britney Parnell, who is accustomed to getting what she wants… and she wants Scott. She wastes no time in making her yearnings known. All can see her motives, but Scott. His only thoughts while in Baghdad are to keep her safe amidst terrorist attacks, shootings and bombs exploding all around them… This sensual, sexy adventure begins with the ultimate betrayal and is filled with action, intrigue, passion and steamy love scenes. Inspired by true events…

  4. Great interview, Krystal. Scott, your answers are always terrific! His books are amazing and hard to put down! I will keep reading as long as he keeps cranking them out! ;)

  5. I simply adore Scottish accents. Used one in my novel too. But I used nay instead of nae. Thanks you. Scott, nice cover.

    Krystal, you never cease to impress with all of your interviews. :)

  6. Krystal, thank you for doing his interview! Scott's books are sexy, romantic and full of adventure! I loved both his books and they're so good I ordered them in print, too. Even picked up an extra set for the boyfriend who was interested in the adventure side. Scott has a very interactive fan page. He's usually on daily replying to fans or posting pictures, videos,etc. Not that many authors give as much time to their readers as Scott does!

  7. I want to say a thumbs up to the creator for keeping this web site simple. Congratulations finally a web site of top-level. Have a nice day!..
