When Catriona’s family promises her in marriage to a detestable chieftain, she desperately needs Torr to save her from a fate worse than death. But Torr is under the spell of a witch of the dark arts and is cursed to spend his nights as a kelpie water demon. He doesn’t believe himself worthy of the virginal Lady Catriona.

5 Cups from Coffeetime Romance"How can one not love a cursed hottie in a kilt? This is a spine tingling story that has a wonderful romance within. The paranormal abounds as does noble politics. Of course the sex is thrilling as is the plot. I love Ms North’s work, and it helped knowing her previous Secret story, Devil in a Kilt, but was not completely necessary." ~Anya

"Beast in a Kilt by Nicole North
This was my favorite book out of the four stories. Childhood friends cursed by a dark witch...; the only way to break the spell is for each of the three men to find their true love. Catriona has been promised to a man thrice her age. Her brother, chieftain of the household is only one that can get her out of this arrangement. He is hiding because of the curse he bears. Since childhood she has always known that her brother's best friend, now also cursed, is who she wants to marry. Convincing him that admitting that he loves her will break the curse is tougher than she thought. Finding her brother in time to call off the wedding, is not possible... This had the sexual tension that kept you engaged in the story, an easy fluid read and well written." Reviewed by SubPage

"This book was awesome. I feel guilty for not reading it as soon as I got it. The books contained within this novel just got better and better.

Beast in a Kilt by Nicole North: OMG this is a story I could read and re read. The sensual play between Catriona and Torr was amazing. Catriona has wanted Torr for such a long time and will no longer be denied and he is not even her betrothed. After trying to rescue her brother from his curse she in turn manages to free Torr from his curse. I can honestly say that I will be looking up more books from this author. Well worth the read and an awesome book to play with!!!
All in all I loved this book. It started with a slow burn and then got to completely orgasmic. I am tonight going to be looking up the other Secrets Books on Amazon. Thank you so much for introducing me." Reviewed by Noushie


From Full Frontal Fantasy: "My overall impression of the collection? A delightful box of confections.... If you have a soft spot for a doomed with a curse, tall, dark, handsome Scot--well then ding ding ding! We have a winner! This is a very fun paranormal featuring a kelpie-by-night hot dude by day."~Lela Gwenn

Review for Beast in a Kilt! "There is something magical about the way Nicole North writes erotic romance relationships. Whatever magic wand she's got in her head to make it work, she Tim-Gunn's it right out of the park. She manages to make each sex scene absolutely vital to the progression of the relationship while also integrating important character development into the non-sensual parts of the book.

"With erotic romance on everyone's radar now, I wouldn't be surprised to see Nicole North on the list of authors who have won an erotic romance RITA when RWA finally adds that category. She is an excellent writer, and I hope she writes many more of these Scottish Shapeshifter erotic romances in the future."

**** 4 Stars from RT BookReviews: "Four sizzling, erotic tales take you from the past to the future.  Each unique story features memorable characters, conflict and tangible passion.  This highly anticipated anthology is a great add to your collection.

In "Sweet-Talking the Opposition: by Saskia Walker, London journalist Eliza Jameson runs into an old flame. This time she plans to call the shots, but Marcus has his own agenda.  On a future earth, Nathalie Gray's "Chimera" is the perfect killing tool.  But his assignment involves a beautiful politician who he can't resist.  In "Edge" by Dominique Sinclair, former agent Catalina is in Mexico looking for a killer.  Her ex-partner Noah shows up with handcuffs to bring her back to the agency. Torr, a fierce Highland warrior, is under the spell of a witch in "Beast in a Kilt" by Nicole North.  Though she's promised to a chieftain, Catriona has loved Torr since childhood.  Catriona wants to seduce Torr and help him banish his curse."

"I really enjoyed this story and liked the author’s style of writing. It was very romantic. I loved the world she built for them. I also really enjoyed both of the characters." Bitten By Paranormal Romance
"North twists an enchanting novella set in the Scottish Highlands in 1621... Keeping the suspense in an erotic novel takes careful planning. Nicole North has mastered that concept as she twines the hero and heroine’s bodies and emotions in constant knots throughout the skirmishes and dangers they encounter while hunting down the antagonist and concocting a scheme to nullify the promise... I adored the characters and the colorful language and wanted to spend more time in the Highlands. If you haven’t tried a Scottish paranormal, this is an excellent choice to start with." ~Dawn at Happily Ever After Thoughts
