Please welcome Anna Durand with
Lethal In A Kilt
Hot Scots #7
He's lethally seductive, always in control -- until now.
I hate Logan MacTaggart. A mature single mom shouldn't say things like that, but I can't help it. Every rude word that comes out of his mouth makes me want to slug him. Or rip his clothes off. Sometimes both. His secret agent past is classified, but I don't like secrets. So why can't I keep my hands off him?
Serena Carpenter is a bitch. Every time she slaps me and calls me disgusting, I want to drag her into the nearest dark corner and show her exactly how rude I can be. I'm a spy, a killer, and a womanizer. I should stay away, but I can't stop myself. I want Serena, but it's just sex. So why does it get harder and harder to keep my distance?
If Logan and I didn't work together, maybe we could stay away from each other. But I see him every day, and the more I see him the more I crave that infuriating man. It's not fair for a jerk to be so hot and irresistible. So what if I'm starting to see something more in him, something I don't want to see--the real man under the tough guy cover. We're completely wrong for each other. But maybe...

How Lethal in a Kilt Was Born
After writing six books in the Hot Scots series, I wanted to try something different to spice things up. Since I'd never written an enemies-to-lovers romance, I decided that should be the trope in this book. Why not? It's fun to write and freshens up the whole series. But I wasn't done yet. I needed a different kind of hero for this book, one who has a mysterious past and James Bond-level skills. So yeah, I made him like 007!
Logan MacTaggart was introduced in the previous book, Insatiable in a Kilt, in which I hinted at his past and his unusual skill set. I also set the stage for Lethal toward the end of Insatiable, particularly the dynamic between Logan and Serena. I loved writing that scene so much that I knew I wanted to make Lethal special and play on Logan's tough-guy image as well as his relationship with his family. In Lethal, we meet his sisters, the Witches of Ballachulish. The story also involves Logan taking a job offered to him by his cousin Evan, the only billionaire (so far) in the MacTaggart clan.
But it's Logan's relationship with Serena that I had the most fun exploring. Like I said, I'd never written a story in which the main characters hate each other, so this was a new experience. Much of the book is inspired by my love of banter, and I've been gratified to hear readers saying that's their favorite part! I love a good Bond movie too, so incorporated a bit of an international adventure into the story too.
I hope you enjoy reading (or listening to) this book as much as I enjoyed writing it. You can't go wrong with Shane East and Emma Wilder narrating! Plus, you'll get a sneak peek at the next book, Irresistible in a Kilt, within the story of Lethal.
