This is a historical highland escapade with clan disputes, daring younger brothers and danger as well as romance. Following her brother unexpectedly becoming the Duke of Lattimer, Lady Marjorie Forrester is still coming to terms with her new station in life and members of the ton seem reluctant to accept her newly elevated status. Her brother has moved to his new estate in the Highlands and, when Marjorie learns that he is planning to marry, she decides to surprise him by leaving London to visit him and meet his betrothed.
She sets out with her companion, Mrs Giswell, and a couple of drivers Unfortunately she was unaware of the clan wars in the area and is kidnapped en route. Her captors turn out to be the younger brothers of the laird of the area and their antics leave him with a serious dilemma. Should he send her on to her brother who owns the neighbouring land or to his Chieftain who is in dispute with her brother. He knows that his brothers will be in trouble if her brother learns of their actions but that he will be in danger if his Chieftain learns he had her captive and didn’t hand her over to him – he doesn’t want to get stuck in the middle of the clan feud. He’s stuck between a rock and a hard place – even more so when he’s attracted to this feisty lass!
The story has great characters, from the so practical yet ingenious Marjorie, to her companion, the very proper ’determined to be seen to follow the rules’ Mrs Giswell, and onto the hardworking Graeme and his brothers. There’s intrigue, confrontation, mischief, danger and the beautiful Highland setting in this delightful novel which is a lovely story to escape into for anyone who enjoys their Regency romantic suspense with a distinctly Scottish flavour.
I requested and received a copy of this story via NetGalley and this is my honest review after reading it.
DARE TO FALL IN LOVE
Scotland, 1812—Rugged Highlander Graeme’s loyalty to his clan means that their enemies are his own—even when that includes his neighbor, the Duke of Lattimer. It’s a fight he doesn’t relish, but when Graeme’s reckless younger brothers foolishly kidnap Lattimer’s younger sister, all bets are off…
Lady Marjorie Forrester may be aligned with the enemy, but capturing her puts Graeme squarely in the middle of a war. If he turns Marjorie over to his clan chief, she could be killed. If he lets her go, his brothers could face prison. In addition, the woman can’t stop trying to civilize the lot of them! What’s a Highlander to do, then, but keep the stubborn lass close…and explore the unexpected passion that develops between them? But how can Graeme protect Marjorie and his brothers when both Lattimer and his own clan are on the warpath—and will do whatever it takes to tear these two star-crossed lovers apart, in My One True Highlander, the next No Ordinary Hero Scottish romance from New York Times bestselling author Suzanne Enoch.
