Series Name: The Wild Wicked Highlander # 1
“When he grinned, her heart gave a stutter. No man should be that handsome. Especially not the brother of the man supposedly courting her.”
Fans of Regency romance novels will want to pick up Suzanne Enoch’s It’s Getting Scot in Here; this book is chock- full of romance, handsome highlanders, and a sensational story.
Amelia-Rose Baxter is having a hard time finding a husband. Her parents want her to marry someone with a title. But Amelia-Rose wants to marry someone who will love her for her mind, who enjoys London society, and who won’t try to change her.
The three MacTaggert brothers have been forced to come to London by their estranged mother, who expects them to each find an English bride or they will lose their ancestral estate. The problem is Coll; the eldest brother wants nothing to do with Amelia-Rose, the woman his mother picked for him. Niall (the youngest brother) finds himself trying to charm her on his brother’s behalf to keep the peace. However, as these two spend more time together, the chemistry between them becomes harder and harder to deny. Does Niall have what it takes to win Amelia-Rose’s heart? There is only one way to find out.
I was a little nervous when I decided to pick up this book. I had read another Suzanne Enoch book and wasn’t particularly fond of it. I am glad that I decided to give her books another chance because I absolutely loved this book! This is the first book in the Wild Wicked Highlander series, and I just fell in love with the MacTaggert family. They have such a fun family dynamic going on, and the things that those three brothers did to get a rise out of their mother had me laughing and cringing at the same time.
Amelia-Rose and Niall were likable right from the beginning. Niall is one charming, witty, handsome highlander, and I found myself falling in love with him as I read the book. I love how he treated Amelia-Rose; he never once made her feel inferior or that her opinions were not important to him. It was also wonderful that Niall was so utterly comfortable with himself; he knew and accepted his strengths and weaknesses and didn’t try to change to fit into London society. This book has a steady pace and has lots to offer its readers from English society parties, a few twists and turns, and heart-racing moments between Amelia-Rose and Niall.
If you are looking for a steamy read, then this book might not be for you. For this book, Suzanne focused on the story and character development and not focusing on the intimate relationship between them. There are only really two intimate scenes in the book, and they were very tame. I did find this surprising considering the way the cover looks and the steamy title, but as the saying goes, never judge a book by its cover.
This book is filled with charismatic characters and a story that will capture your attention from beginning to end. I cannot wait to read the next book in the series Scot Under the Cover.
