Irresistible in a Kilt is a work of steamy romantic fiction set in Scotland and was penned by author Anna Durand as part of the Hot Scots book series. In its audio format, the narration is shared between Shane East and Elle Newlands, who provide authentic voices to narrate protagonists Alex and Catriona. The story focuses on Alex and Cat’s tumultuous relationship and the secrets which Alex still seems to be keeping. As Cat struggles with the new direction of her life and her feelings for the irresistible Alex, she wonders if she can turn the tables on him and gain the upper hand in their relationship at last. The work is suitable for adult readers due to explicit content including erotic scenes, adult language, scenes of violence, and some criminal encounters.
Author Anna Durand delivers a superb story with heat, heart, and hijinks aplenty. There is never an opportunity missed for drama, whether that be action in the scheming and winding plot, or in the emotional turmoil that these two hot-headed powerhouses so often cause for one another. In terms of audiobook quality, the work is stellar thanks to its crisp editing and superb formatting. Shane East takes on the role of Alex with smooth charm and a dreamy lilt to his voice that fans of Scottish romance will be sure to adore. Elle Newlands delivers Cat to a high standard with a great sensitivity for her emotions, but also a fiery Scots power that is inspiring and exciting to hear. Overall, I would highly recommend Irresistible in a Kilt as an audiobook for romance fans to fall totally in love with: a high-quality romantic production.
