Overall Setting: 5 Stars/5 Kilts
The brawny, strapping, honorable highlander, Laird Graeme Maxton of clan Maxwell, can't wait to put his neighbor the villainous, Sassenach, Duke Lattimer, in his place! Plus the fact it will reward him with enough money~he will never have to worry about his ot the clan’s finances ever again! ! Then his impulsive brother goes and blows it - he actually abducts Lattimer’s gorgeous sister, Lady Marjorie Forrester, whom basically ends up in his lap!
The only honorable thing he can do is marry this beautiful lass or have a bloody clan war! Graeme feels she is just too beautiful to be ruined, yet ruined she will be if word gets out. Plus the fact if caught his brother’s would go to prison! Plus even Lady Marjorie’s life is in jeopardy! No, not by him or his young brothers, of course not, yet the clan chief could order her execution to avoid a clan war! In addition his clan would be in all sorts of trouble if he sent her back. They could take everything away from them, their lands, home, even order the clan in exile So no going back for Lady Marjorie, it is just not going to happen.
What they don't realize is this new Duke was previously orphaned and took a commission so he could support his sister. As Marjorie wanted more than anything to be accepted by the ton. Yet they keep snubbing her and giving her the cut direct! As they would always see her as a penniless orphan or lady’s companion. Even though she went to the best boarding and finishing schools and was every bit the lady. Even her former friends won't have anything to do with her new life, Marjorie is very lonely and her brother the new Duke Lattimer, is so far away in the Highlands. So when she hears Gabriel, her brother is getting married, it is the perfect opportunity for her! To meet his fiancé Fiona and visit her only family her dearest brother, Gabriel!
Marjorie knows she should be scared out of her wits being abducted in the highlands by highland scoundrels. Yet how can she be when she meets the most gorgeous braw highlander! As it happens to be the leader The Viscount, Laird Graeme Maxton. Yet she knows she can't stay here forever but he seems to have other plans as he can't seem to keep his hands to himself. With a heavy heart, Marjorie knows it was time to leave. Will Graeme allow it or even want it? As he has so many burdens on his strong shoulders, saving his clan, avoiding a clan war and avoid turning Marjorie over to the clan chief! She could be slaughtered so that isn't even an option and his young brothers would go to prison! Yet at the moment his biggest concern, was saving his heart!
As in all star crossed romances, it was his heart and honor that was in danger, also in jeopardy of being broken. Marjorie’s coat was also not made of chain mail, as they both have fallen deeply in love. How does it resolve you will have to read this magnificent book to find out.
This is the second book in the No Ordinary Hero Series by Suzanne Enoch. As usual this talented author will blow you away and pull your heartstrings and melt your soul. Terrific dialogue, amazing character development, breathtaking settings, plots that make your heart melt and pulse race.
The secondary characters like Marjorie's Mrs. Giswell, the duckling-Connell, Brendan and Dùghlas were all phenomenal and made me laugh a lot!
Another fast paced page turner with all the elements historical romance readers love. This book is filled with abduction, conflict, suspense mystery, devilish impish children and animals that you just can't help but love! In addition a highlander hottie and beautiful damsel that could cause some heat. Plus in addition falling madly in love who will win this love on the battlefield? Will they stay together or part their separate ways? You will have to read it and find out.
This book follows book #1 Hero in The Highlands perfectly. It is about Marjorie’s brother Gabriel and his now Scottish fiancé Fiona. It was the perfect set-up for this book so yes I highly recommend you start at the beginning. I think you will learn more of the siblings struggles from book #1 and how they landed titled and wealthy from penniless orphans. You can also read as stand alone books, readers choice.
