Publication Day Review: Hit Me With Your Best Scot by Suzanne Enoch

The third and final book in the wickedly seductive Scottish historical romance series from New York Times bestselling author Suzanne Enoch, HIT ME WITH YOUR BEST SCOT (St. Martin’s Paperbacks, February 9, 2021, $7.99).

The MacTaggert brothers have one task:
Find English brides or lose their land!

Coll MacTaggert, Viscount Glendarril, is a big, brawny Highlander who doesn’t like being told what to do—not even by his exasperated English mother who is determined to see her eldest son wedded and bedded. However, when he comes to the rescue of an irresistibly beautiful woman, Coll discovers that he may have found his perfect match…

The challenge isn’t that Persephone Jones is famous, wealthy, independent, and smarter than anyone he knows. The problem is that she isn't interested in marrying any man---especially not a hot-headed Scot—even if he is the only man who seems to understand who she really is even when she’s not sure herself. When Coll learns that Persephone is actually a lady-in-hiding and someone is willing to kill her for what she stands to inherit…Well, Coll has never been one to turn down a fight. When hearts are involved, nothing comes between a Highlander and his lady.

What fun!

The clock is ticking as Eloise's wedding date closes in as Coll MacTaggert, Viscount Glendarril still needs to find and marry an English bride to fulfil his mother's request. At stake, is the loss of funding to keep Aldriss Park, the family home in the highlands afloat. Now, it is time for the eldest son to follow his younger brothers' and find a woman to marry!

Determined not to marry one of the “hothouse flowers” his mother, Lady Aldriss recommends Coll MacTaggert is both strong-willed, pragmatic and motivated to accomplish the task before the looming deadline. In record speed, he finds an English woman. Only, she's not a lady, she's an actress and a widow.

Persephone Jones is an actress and widow. A resourceful woman, she's hiding a secret and not your average historical heroine.

...when two strong people met, one of them had to bend. And bending didn't mean losing. It only meant finding a different path”.

Ms Enoch has written a captivating historical romp with lashings of humour! The blend between London society and the wild men of the highlands is addictive. Kilt wearing Coll MacTaggert, a giant of a man finds what he wants while navigating theatre-land. The result is an unlikely match, but not everything in the world is as it seems.

The tale of the three brothers' comes full circle and although the plot continues from book to book, each brother's story can be enjoyed as standalone. Therefore, while I heartily recommend reading the whole series, Coll's journey to a happy ending is as good a place to start.

Overall, a fabulous finale to a series leaving me wondering which one of the Wild Wicked Highlanders I would choose myself?
