Scot Under the Covers

The Wild Wicked Highlanders #2

by Suzanne Enoch

Publisher ~ St. Martin's Press Romance
Genres ~ Historical Romance

When a resourceful English lady and a hot-blooded Highlander join forces to trick a scoundrel, every rule will be broken!

Miranda Harris is known for her charm, wit, and ability to solve any problem she encounters. But when her brother lands neck-deep in gambling debt to a crafty villain and Miranda is subsequently blackmailed into marrying him, she must enlist the help of the devil himself to save the family honor―and herself.

Devilishly handsome Highlander Aden MacTaggert knows next to nothing about the ways of the ton, but he most certainly knows his way around gaming halls and womens’ hearts. Still, Aden is not sure how he’ll manage to find a Sassenach bride in time to save his family’s inheritance. When his almost sister-in-law Miranda comes to him for assistance, he proposes a partnership: She will help him navigate London society and he’ll teach her everything about wagering…and winning back her freedom. The beautiful, clever lass intrigues Aden―but is she playing her own game, or are the sparks between them real? He is accustomed to risking his pocket. But betting on Miranda’s love is a game he can’t afford to lose. . .

Miranda and Aden lead readers on a "merry chase" that this reader absolutely enjoyed and found herself laughing out loud several times at Aden and his brother, Coll's antics. Fast paced, humorous, full of intrigue, distrust and the love of family. 

The primary heroine is my kind of girl. She doesn't just fold and get the vapors she works of getting out of her predicament. I admire how the author unfolded her character creating her to be dimensional, believable and emotional while retaining her ladylike qualities. I love how she kept poking and pushing at Aden till he pushed back.

The opening scenes including Aden and Coll are hysterical and were effective in setting the mood for this book. The author quickly brings you into their resistance to finding and marrying a Sassenach bride plus all the antics these wild highlander's do and create to not fit in. They are like bulls in a china shop. Very adorable though I do feel bad for their proper English mother.

Aden is quite different than what I originally thought. He has this huge wall around him to keep him safe. The circumstances show him many things such as how to trust, work with others and open his heart to love while thinking of others well-being. I feel like he changed the most in this book, but he still retained his core self.

This is worth 5 STARS for being so multidimensional. 

Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
