Veronica Reviews: IT'S GETTING SCOT IN HERE by Suzanne Enoch
It’s Getting Scot in Here
“I’ve fallen for ye, Amelia-Rose. Hard. I want ye to have nae a bigger life than the one ye imagined for yerself, but a more satisfying one. I love ye.”
Laird Angus McTaggart and Lady Francesca Aldiss started their life together with a fierce passion. But over time, Lady Aldiss can no longer tolerate the lifestyle of the Highlands and longs for her days in society living in London. After the birth of their daughter, Lady Aldiss tells her husband that he may keep their sons and raise them in the wilds, but she is taking their daughter to be raised amongst the cultured. Laird McTaggart, in great need of his wife’s large coffers, agrees to her terms—their three sons must all wed an English lass before their sister or she will cut off funding Clan Ross.
Fast forward 17 years, and the MacTaggert brothers find themselves at a loss when their father tells them of the agreement made with their mother. Coll, Aden, and Naill MacTaggert are determined no mother that abandoned them will dictate how they will live their lives, and descend upon Lady Aldiss with plans of their own. Alas, their mother will not budge, and she has already found a bride for her oldest, Coll. Ever the peacemaker in the family, Naill goes with Coll to meet his betrothed, Amelia-Rose Baxter. But Amelia-Rose is nothing that Coll wants in a bride, and everything Naill desires. Quick witted and sharp tongued with a beauty not to be compared, Naill finds himself falling hard and fast for his brother’s intended.
Amelia-Rose has spent the past 19 years doing everything to please her mother and always coming up short. When she meets Naill MacTaggert, she is pulled towards his honesty and charm…as well as his exceptional good looks. But what really calls to her heart is that he seems to care for her and all the quirks that London’s society shuns.
Naill and Ameila-Rose find themselves caught up in quite a tangle, and they both must decide if what they are feeling for each other is worth fighting for or if they will do their families bidding and forever wonder what could have been…
Suzanne Enoch’sIt’s Getting Scot in Hereis a fun fast paced romance that I enjoyed and would recommend to lovers of this genre. I did have a wee bit of a problem with the mother abandoning her children at such a young age, but I imagine that for the times, it was quite common, and this story does resolve some of the conflict and give us a happily ever after. I’m kinda rooting for Jane, Amelia-Rose’s cousin, to be paired with one of the other brothers in the next installment of theWild Wicked Highlandersseries.
