Genres: Historical Romance
London socialite Amelia-Rose Baxter is nobody’s fool. Her parents may want her to catch a title, but she will never change who she is for the promise of marriage. Her husband will be a man who can appreciate her sharp mind as well as her body. A sophisticated man who loves life in London. A man who considers her his equal―and won’t try to tame her wild heart...
IN THE HIGHLANDS
Rough, rugged Highlander Niall MacTaggert and his brothers know the rules: the eldest must marry or lose the ancestral estate, period. But Niall’s eldest brother just isn’t interested in the lady his mother selected. Is it because Amelia-Rose is just too. . . Free-spirited? Yes. Brazen? Aye. Surely Niall can find a way to soften up the whip-smart lass and make her the perfect match for his brother for the sake of the family.
JUST GOT A WHOLE LOT HOTTER.
Instead it’s Niall who tempts Amelia-Rose, despite her reservations about barbarian Highlanders. Niall finds the lass nigh irresistible as well, but he won’t make the mistake his father did in marrying an Englishwoman who doesn’t like the Highlands. Does he have what it takes to win her heart? There is only one way to find out...
Alimony in any other form is Alimony
I’ve read tons of Historical Romances in my years of reading. It’s Getting Scot In Here, the first book in the Wild Wicked Highlanders, written by Suzanne Enoch, just didn’t rack up with any of them, nor with her others titles in this genre. I didn’t find it at all entertaining. It was slow throughout and praying while reading the tempo would pick up.
The book began with manipulation. When Lady Aldriss wanted to take her daughter to London to live. Lord Aldriss, didn’t mind, on the condition that she continued providing for the maintenance of the estate. Lady Aldriss had a condition of her own. She would continue financing the estate, as long as, her sons marry before the daughter, and the brides to be must be of her own choosing. The sons grew up the daughter Is engaged and now the hunt is on for the sons to marry.
I seriously wanted to enjoy this story, I couldn’t really find anything I liked about this book. I couldn’t relate to the characters and didn’t find them at all likable. Based on the synopsis I was expecting much better.
