Oh Suzanne Enoch, you have stolen my heart with this series! With fabulous writing, endearing characters and that dash of charm that never fails to make me smile, the Scandalous Highlanders series has quickly become a favorite of mine.
To be honest the whole reason I read this book is because of the title. Something so fun and charming like that has to be great, right? Let me tell you, it was! I LOVED this book!
Rowena MacLawry has had a crush on Lachlan since she was a little girl. And although Lachlan has always seen her as his friend’s little sister, she still can’t get over her crush on him. It isn’t until she decides to go to London for three months that she learns that there is more to the world than just grumpy old Lachlan who doesn’t appreciate her beauty or her brain.
When she returns home looking and feeling better than ever, Lachlan takes notice of all of the many suitors after Winnie but she is already over her childhood crush. There’s this one scene that literally made me jump for joy because after all the crap Winnie dealt with, she kind of gets her chance to throw Lachlan’s arrogance back in his face.
Lachlan tries to tell Winnie that she needs to get over him and that he will never want to marry her. He expects her to fall on her knees before him, crying, begging for his love. But this is Winnie’s response …
“For a long moment she gazed at him while he waited for her pretty blue eyes to overflow with tears. Bear would likely attempt to bloody him, but Ranulf had practically ordered him to do this. It wasn’t as if he wanted to see her cry.
Winnie smiled. Then a chuckle burst from her chest. “Oh dear,” she managed.
That did not sound like heartbreak. He frowned before he could remember that that was a good thing. “What’s so damned amusing?”
“You looked so serious. I’m so sorry,” she returned. “Poor Lachlan. You must’ve been terrified every time you saw me appear.”
The entire book is filled with their back and forth. It’s so entertaining to see Lachlan get jealous and trip over himself trying to win back Winnie’s attentions. There is just something so fun and endearing about this book and I couldn’t but fall deeper in love with this series. Enoch just has the best humor and it really translates on the page. If you’re a fan of Julia Quinn or Lisa Kleypas, this is a series you should be reading!
What did you think of our review?
Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below!
When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
