Release Day Review. Scot Under The Covers by Suzanne Enoch

Scot Under the Covers (Wild Wicked Highlanders, #2)Scot Under the Covers by Suzanne Enoch

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A new to me author and a hero in a kilt...yes, please!

Highlander, Aden McTaggart and his two brothers are in London to find a bride each. Their mother has stipulated they must find English wives before their younger sister marries or they will lose their financial backing. A Pragmatic man, he'll do what's necessary but underestimates the choice of young ladies available. Therefore, he's taken aback when a forthright woman, catches his eye. On meeting, she makes her dislike of him obvious only Aden sees this as a challenge. He's game to find out more about her because she's the only woman to have caught his attention in a long time.

Miranda Harris dislikes any man who likes to gamble. Therefore, she instantly dislikes the kilt-wearing, devilishly handsome brother of her friend. So, when her own brother reveals he's lost fifty thousand pounds and shockingly reveals she has to marry the man he owes money to, Miranda confides in Aden McTaggart. After all, he likes a wager and maybe he can help her understand how to pay off her brother's debt?

This is the second book in the Wild Wicked Highlanders series and now I want to read the first one. Don't worry though, this is standalone and you don't need to have read Niall McTaggart's story to enjoy his one, although you'll want too. All the characters are fun and the villain is a scoundrel in this fun and humorous romance.

The only aspect I didn't enjoy was Aden's dialogue. I understand the author wanting to authenticate his Highland background, but although I understood what he said, it hindered ( my opinion) an otherwise smooth-flowing narrative.

Overall, a delightful frenemies to lovers tale wrapped around a captivating story.
