Highlander Ronan Maclaren must marry, but he’s in no particular hurry. He’s perfectly happy as the laird of his clan, running the Maclaren Whisky Distillery, and besides, he just hasn’t found the right woman.

Lady Imogen Kincaid has cleverly avoided wedlock for years. Men, she has learned from painful experience, are not to be trusted. Determined to remain independent, she takes an indecent amount of pleasure in making herself as unattractive to potential suitors as possible.

When desperate measures are taken by their parents and a betrothal contract is signed, it’s loathing at first sight. They each vow to make the other cry off—by any means necessary. But what starts out as a battle of wits...quickly dissolves into a battle of wills.

Each book in the Tartans & Titans series is STANDALONE:
*Sweet Home Highlander
*A Lord for the Lass
* What a Scot Wants


“Ronan and Imogen are hilarious and the banter and double-entendres had me laughing out loud. The compassion of these two and their fight for each other was truly a delight to read. A lovely story.” -Angela D., Goodreads

“This dynamic duo can do no wrong. This book is heartfelt, sweet, funny, and delightful.” -Monica J., NetGalley

“I thoroughly enjoyed the book What A Scot Wants. The battle of wills of the two main characters, and one-upmanship as each tried to get the other to cry off the betrothal, was lighthearted, carefree, and I found myself laughing out loud several times. The book had some great elements of danger and suspense and I often found myself getting frustrated when I had to put the book down in order to 'adult'.” -Shireen B., Goodreads

“I really liked this book. It was also hysterically funny!   These two were SO creative when it came to how they were trying to chase off the other.  There were more than a couple of times when I laughed out loud at their shenanigans.” -Linda W., NetGalley

“What a comedy this book was!  Amalie Howard and Angie Morgan created a romance that was one big game.  It ought to have been called How to Lose a Betrothed in Ten Days, because that was basically the goal of both the hero and heroine.  It was so much fun watching it escalate as each became more and more desperate to be rid of the other.  Definitely a book to read if you need a laugh!” -Meghan L., Goodreads 

I laughed for 300 pages straight! And then I swooned some more” -Erika C., NetGalley

This is the first book I have read by Amalie Howard, but it won't be the last! What a Scot Wants is the 3rd book in a series, and while there were allusions to characters' stories that led me to believe they were the focus of earlier books, I did not feel that I missed anything important in this one ...more

This was the right balance between swoony, angsty, and funny :) The banter between Ronan and Imogen when they first got betrothed was absolutely hilarious! Their trying to make the other cry off went a little long to me, but the climax of the story and conclusion more than made up for it.

What a Scot needs

I confess I didn’t knew this duet of authors until I saw their soon-to-come new book. And how I am glad I decided to follow their Facebook pages, I laughed so much at Imogen and Ronan attics and the pranks they tried to trap the other in.
Sure it is a historical romance but also a ro ...more

WHAT A SCOT WANTS by Amalie Howard and Angie is book Three in the Tartans and Titans Series. This is the story of Imogen Kinley and Ronan Maclaren the Duke of Dunrannoch . I have read the previous books, but felt you could read this as a standalone book.

This was a very entertaining read, there were amusing encounters when Ronan and Imogen are in each other’s company. Both had past disappointments and although they were attracted to each other, they fought against it. Although there were humorous times, there are also some serious issues to ...more

I did not think this story could top A Lord for the Lass because I loved Julien. I was wrong. This story, my favorite in this series, surpassed my love for Julien and brought me a new love, Ronan. Everything about this story worked. Ronan and Imogen are hilarious and the banter and double-entendres ...more

This is a good story.
Both Hero and heroine are informed that they must marry, as arranged by their parents or forfeit their future inheritances.
Both try to make the other cry off as the one who backs out is the one that will loose their money.
The tricks and games they play on each other are quite fu ...more

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

This is my first read from Amalie Howard and Angie Morgan. I feel like this story straddled the line between an historical Scottish arranged marriage story and a contemporary enemies to lovers story. ...more

This was great. I loved how neither Imogen or Ronan wanted to marry but they were put in a situation where they had no choice. They would lose everything if they didn’t. How neither really understood what that meant for the other nor did they understand each other when they first met.

I found this book both frustrating and enjoyable, but I feel like my frustrations aren't 100% justafiable, so I rated a little on the easier side.

Amalie Howard

About the author

Award Winning Author

Amalie Howard

Amalie Howard grew up in Trinidad & Tobago where she spent most of her childhood with her nose buried in a book or running around barefoot, shimmying up mango trees, and dreaming of adventure. 25 countries, surfing with sharks, and several tattoos later, she has traded in bungee jumping in China for writing the adventures she imagines instead. She isn’t entirely convinced which takes more guts. An aspiring writer from a young age, Amalie’s poem “The Candle,” written at age twelve, was published by the University of Warwick press. At fifteen, she was a recipient of a Royal Commonwealth Society Essay Award (a global youth writing competition). A Colby College graduate, she completed dual Honors Theses in both French and International Studies, and graduated Summa Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa. At Colby, she was cited for her research contribution to Raffael Scheck’s article, “German Conservatism and Female Political Activism in the Early Weimar Republic,” and his subsequent book, Mothers of the Nation. She also received a distinction in English Literature from the University of Cambridge (A-levels) as well as a postgraduate certificate in French Literature from the Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris, France. Traveling the globe, she has worked as a research assistant, account executive, and global channel sales director for a Fortune 500 company. She is the award-winning author of several young adult novels critically acclaimed by Kirkus, Publishers Weekly, SLJ, VOYA, and Booklist, including Waterfell, The Almost Girl, and Alpha Goddess, a Spring 2014 Kid’s INDIE NEXT title. Her debut novel, Bloodspell, was a #1 Amazon bestseller, and the sequel, Bloodcraft, was a national silver IPPY medalist and a silver Moonbeam award winner. She is also the co-author of the adult historical romance series, THE LORDS OF ESSEX. As an author of color and a proud supporter of diversity in fiction, her articles on multicultural fiction have appeared in The Portland Book Review and on the popular Diversity in YA blog. She currently resides in Colorado with her husband and three children.

Angie Morgan

About the author

Angie Morgan

Angie is the author of several young adult and middle grade books, including The Beautiful and the Cursed, The Lovely and the Lost, and The Wondrous and the Wicked (written under the name Page Morgan) and Everlasting and The Eternal Sea, and two Suzanna Snow Mystery novels (written under her real name, Angie Frazier). Critically acclaimed by Booklist, Publisher’s Weekly, Kirkus, School Library Journal, VOYA, and The Bulletin, Angie’s novels have been an IndieNext selection, a Seventeen Magazine Summer Book Club Read, and a #1 Amazon bestseller. A lover of history and romance, and with a number of bookshelves stuffed with paperback romance novels by her favorite historical romance authors — Sarah MacLean, Julia Quinn, Elizabeth Hoyt, Eloisa James, Tessa Dare, Lisa Kleypas, Sabrina Jeffries, and so many more — Angie has finally taken the leap into adult romance. My Rogue, My Ruin is the first of three books in her new Lords of Essex series, co-written with her good friend and fellow author, Amalie Howard. Angie lives in New Hampshire with her husband, their three daughters, and a menagerie of pets. When she isn’t writing, she’s either reading, training for a half marathon, cooking, shuttling her children to school, dance, and gymnastics, or — if she’s lucky — sleeping.
