WILD AT HEART
Scotland, 1812: He’s ferocious and rugged to the bone, an English soldier more at home on the battlefield than in any Society drawing room. And when Major Gabriel Forrester learns that he’s inherited the massive Scottish Highlands title and estate of a distant relation, the last thing he wants to do is give up the intensity of the battlefield for the too-soft indulgences of noble life. But Gabriel Forrester does not shirk his responsibilities, and when he meets striking, raven-eyed lass Fiona Blackstock, his new circumstances abruptly become more intriguing.
Like any good Highlander, Fiona despises the English—and the new Duke of Lattimer is no exception. Firstly, he is far too attractive for Fiona’s peace of mind. Secondly, his right to “her” castle is a travesty, since it’s been clan Maxwell property for ages. As the two enter a heated battle of wills, an unexpected passion blazes into a love as fierce as the Highlands themselves. Is Fiona strong enough to resist her enemy’s advances—or is Gabriel actually her hero in disguise?
Since I love reading romance about Highlanders, and since I never read any books by Suzanne Enoch I thought I give Hero in the Highlands a try. The synopsis was what drew me. But that was all that was to the story.
Even the character himself said he made for a better soldier than a lord, and he was correct. The story was very good at the beginning, then when he inherits the title and had to go to Scotland that is when the story went downhill. I found myself skimming through the pages than actually reading the book. Sadly, this story didn’t hold my attention for long.
