Marry or lose their estate; that’s the devil’s bargain he and his brothers must follow. But wild Highlander Niall MacTaggert’s stubborn oldest brother wants nothing to do with marrying the sophisticated, pinky-out Lady Amelia-Rose his mother has chosen for him, even to save their land. Niall’s only goal is to soften up the London socialite, and show his brother the warm beauty behind the shiny, polished front. But what Niall doesn’t expect to find is the woman of his dreams...
I really, really enjoyed It's Getting Scot in Here, my first book (ever!) by the talented Suzanne Enoch.
From that title, I was expecting something fun and funny and full of romance, and that's exactly what I got.
I loved how both MCs were instantly likable. Of course I adore an outspoken female MC, but we also get a hulking, masculine male MC who loves strong women (hallelujah) and isn't afraid to be himself. In fact, both MCs were truly their own people, and it made the story a joy to read.
I enjoyed the family dynamics, I enjoyed the trajectory of the relationship, and I liked how the author didn't rely on silly misunderstandings or other plot devices to give tension to the story. Though the story edged on too long and drawn-out (it's over 350 pages), the pacing kept me glued to the story and I finished the book in under 24 hours. That's a big deal!
Though the characters and the romance really sang, what really won me over was the subtle wit and humor. The author kept the story light and fun, and I had a smile on my face the whole time I was reading. It was just so, so delightful.
If you are looking for a well done, light romance between a highlander who isn't supposed to fall in love with an English woman who is his brother's betrothed (but does), look no further than It's Getting Scot in Here.
