My One True Highlander by Suzanne Enoch

My One True Highlander

 

Laugh-Out-Loud New Release by Suzanne Enoch!

 

My One True Highlander is a perfectly paced, humorous, and highly entertaining historical fiction romance. I loved it!

Marjorie Forrester was stunned by her sudden status and wealth. Her brother, unexpectedly, became the new Duke of Lattimer, and she a Lady. Marjorie’s brother generously gave her a lavish home in London to enjoy. The transition, however, was proving to be a difficult one. Lady Marjorie hired a companion to help her become accepted by London’s polite society; something she has always wanted.

Marjorie was tired of listening to her companion’s lectures on how improper and unsafe it was, to show up at the Duke of Latimer’s castle, unannounced. Lady Marjorie was aware that her companion was only concerned for her welfare, but what kind of surprise would it be, if her brother knew when to expect her?

Lady Marjorie was furious when she found herself kidnapped in Scotland and shackled to a bedpost. How dare the despicable Scottish barbarian lock her up without so much as an explanation. Oh, how she wished she would have listened to her companion. However, the longer Lady Marjorie stayed in Graeme Maxton’s home, the more she realized how lucky she had been. There was a war going on between clans and not only was she right smack in the middle of it; she was also the prized pawn. Lady Marjorie shuddered to think of what could have happened if the opposing clan had been the one to kidnap her.

I enjoyed this laugh-out-loud historical fiction novel immensely. It’s superbly written with witty dialogue, likable characters, and a captivating plot. I especially loved the hysterical banter between Laird Graeme Maxton and Lady Marjorie Forrester!

Thank you, St. Martin’s Press and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.

* Hero In The Highlands*by Suzanne Enoch*5-Stars

hero-in-the-highlands

Hero In The Highlands is a well-crafted, emotionally charged, historical fiction romance. I became involved with the characters and cared about them, right from the start. The author’s ability to describe the Highlands and capture the essence of the Scottish people, their culture, and dialect, made this book come alive for me.

Fearless war hero, Major Gabriel Forrester, was known as the Beast of Bussaco. He was also recognized for his loyalty and was honored by his soldiers. Gabriel thought that serving in the Crown’s Army was the only thing that he wanted to do in life. But, that was before, he met Fiona, a beautiful, fiery, Scottish lass, near Lattimer Castle. At first, Gabriel wanted nothing to do with his newly acquired title, Duke of Lattimer. He had no use for polite society and their extravagant lifestyle. Gabriel thrived instead, on the life-pumping, adrenaline rush that fighting in a bloody war battle gave him. But, the inherited title of Duke, was now his, whether he wanted it or not. So, Gabriel established a new plan. He was going to set his acquired estates in order, starting with Lattimer, and then return to the life he was accustomed to, in the Army.

The condition of Lattimer Castle was deplorable and seemed to be more trouble than it was worth; yet, Gabriel couldn’t bring himself to leave it, or Fiona, Lattimer’s sassy steward. Although Fiona’s sharp tongue, was usually aimed at Gabriel, he still found the bold and flippant woman, irresistible.

Fiona knew that she was in trouble when she started to think of the Duke as a hero, instead of an English devil, who needed to be booted back, to wherever he had come from. Gabriel was the only man, though, who ever listened and valued her opinion. Fiona knew that she should be hating and conspiring against the Sassenach, but, she couldn’t stop herself from falling in love with him.

Hero In The Highlands is a delightful read, full of romance, witty banter, and well-developed characters. I loved Fiona’s kindness toward her tenants, and Gabriel’s willingness to do whatever was necessary to care for them. The book tugged at my heart and made me laugh. I loved every page of this humorous, well-written, and touching story. I recommend this book to anyone who loves historical fiction romance. I look forward to reading more books written by this talented author.

I received this ARC from the publisher, via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.
