Never Seduce a Scott is what Scottish Historical Romance genre is all about. It is an astounding love story that had me in tears. But be forewarned, this book will give you a book hangover and your next book will for sure to put you in a book slump.The Armstrongs and the Montgomerys are feuding clans that go back centuries and their hate towards each other are ingrained from childhood. As a last resort to end this quarrel, King Alexander II decides to marry them off. Both clans are furious but a forced alliance was made through Graeme and Eveline’s marriage.
Maya Banks did a wonderful job with Graeme as the hero, a total Scottish alpha male. He is every bit romantic, as he is a warrior. Everyone respected him, all the women wanted him and he is well endowed!!! He is the exact alpha I love to read about.
Eveline, is known to be “daft” but yet, forced into a marriage without knowing her groom, live in his household, deal with his clan who hates her, not to mention she has a disability but somehow survived it all. She stood tall, proud and made the worse situation to a better one without help or a pity party. I cheered for her right from the start and reading about her was so uplifting. Let me tell you this chick rocked.
Maya Banks did well to put these two very strong personalities together without clashing to a disaster. It was so easy to fall for them both. The Romance was just epic!!!
Never Seduce a Scot is without a doubt. one of my top reads of the year!

I coblog and review here at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens.I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone.For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.
