From the bestselling author of On Dublin Street, 'Scotland's EL James' (Sunday Post) comes a seductive story of forgiving the past and making up for lost time....

Shannon MacLeod has always gone for the wrong type of man. After she drifted from one toxic relationship to the next, her last boyfriend gave her a wake-up call in the worst possible way. With her world shattered, she's sworn off men - especially those of the bad-boy variety.

Cole Walker is exactly the sort that Shannon wants to avoid - gorgeous, tattooed, charming, and cocky. But his rough exterior hides a good man - one who's determined to pull Shannon from her self-imposed solitude and win her heart.

As Shannon begins to open up, the passion between them ignites to blazing levels. But when her past comes back to haunt her, her fears may destroy the trust Cole has built between them - and tear them apart for good . . .

Cover:  I really like this cover!  It's sexy without being trashy.

I read Fall From India Place a couple of months ago, and I had a few issues with it.  So I wasn't sure what I was going to make of Echoes of Scotland Street.
I enjoyed this one much more.
Shannon was a tad frustrating at time, but I could still understand why, and I really felt for her.  Her previous boyfriend was abusive, and led to her not trusting men or her instincts about them.
Cole. Ah Cole.  I really loved him.  Sexy. Sweet. Romantic. Tattoo artists.
But it’s not all sweet and gentle. Cole is a bit of a dirty talker and there is a whole lot of sexy time, but the chemistry and emotion is there between them too. Their relationship developed nicely and we had lots of time with them as a couple and I liked that each of them had troubled pasts to not only get past, but to share.
There were moments of total stupidity where I wanted to shake these characters, but they came good in the end.
A nice, quicky enjoyable romance read.
3.5/5 stars.
