“I really liked the premise of this story and how the romance kind of happens without the hero and heroine really planning on it. There’s something quite romantic about it, especially when Historical Romance is all about propriety and caring about what others think of them.”

HERO IN THE HIGHLANDS is the first in a new series by Suzanne Enoch. I love Enoch’s stories and I can’t believe it took me so long to read this one! The No Ordinary Hero series is a bit of a departure from Enoch’s other series because the heroes in this series are a little more gruff. With an emphasis on Highlanders, that’s almost expected but I really fell in love with the hero of this story.
Major Gabriel Forrester is more suited on the battlefield than a ballroom so when he gets pulled out of battle because he has inherited a Scottish Highlands title, he sees it more of an inconvenience than anything else. It isn’t what he has planned for himself. However, things have a way of changing without his will.
I loved Gabriel’s character! He’s a little on the rough side but that’s part of what makes him so appealing to me. I really liked the premise of this story and how the romance kind of happens without the hero and heroine really planning on it. There’s something quite romantic about it, especially when Historical Romance is all about propriety and caring about what others think of them.
This is definitely an enemies to lovers story and while I enjoyed the heroine, Fiona, Gabriel was the one for me that made this book shine. I’m looking forward to reading the rest of the series and seeing what other heroes Enoch writes next!
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!
