The dawning of desire
1806, Scotland. Wild, reckless Callum MacCreath is in no hurry to become someone’s husband. But when his responsible, steady older brother Ian announces his engagement to their childhood friend Rebecca, Callum makes a startling discovery: he wants the lovely young lass for himself. But it’s too late, and when Ian banishes him for his duplicity, Callum is only too happy to leave Scotland forever.
…is delicious and dangerous
1816: Marrying Ian was the practical, logical thing for Becca to do. But once Callum sailed away to America, she missed his rakish charm and lust for life. Now Becca is a widow when a much-changed Callum returns to his Scottish homeland. Will he remember their spirited, fiery connection or does he blame her for his brother’s unexpected death? This time neither of them can deny their scorching attraction. But will their hearts be burned in the blazing heat of scandal?
“It’s time to fall in love with Suzanne Enoch.” —Lisa Kleypas
“Steamy and bubbling with humor, a scrumptious tale to begin her No Ordinary Hero series.” —Booklist (starred review) on Hero in the Highlands
I voluntarily read an Advance Review Copy of this book through Netgalley. The story involves two prominent murders, a brother trying to avenge his brother’s murder and discovering a love he thought lost to him. Callum meets his niece, Mags and she instantly has him wrapped around her little finger. Even though Mags is almost six and a half, her part in this story is well written and adds a lot of humor to the story. The love that develops between Callum and Rebecca becomes stronger as the story progresses. This is a well written book and 8 would highly recommend it.
Callum was heartbroken; his childhood friend, Rebecca, the one, he assumed would always be his, was marrying Ian, his responsible brother. It was true that Callum had spent most of his time, inebriated, and flirting with loose women, but when his friend accepted his brother’s marriage proposal, Callum realized the depth of his feelings for Rebecca. Callum’s reaction, he admits was extreme, and what he did, very wrong. But did his brother have to ban him from the family? The truth of it was; apparently, he did, because that was what it took, for Callum to turn his life around.
After spending ten years in America, Callum was a changed man. Although he never forgot Rebecca, he wanted to. He tried to hate her, but couldn’t. However, if Callum discovered that Rebecca had anything to do with his brother’s death, hating her would be easy. She would pay, just like anyone who had a hand in his brother’s murder. And murder is what it was. Callum was sure of it. When Callum returned to Scotland, to avenge his brother’s death, his stone heart began to soften. Margaret, the niece he had never met, won his heart over the moment she spoke with him. She was beautiful and innocent and his brother’s daughter. Rebecca, however, was another story. He didn’t care where she went or whom she married; just as long as she was aware that she wouldn’t be taking her daughter with her. No, Margaret was staying with him. He was her guardian now.
As Callum dug for information about his brother’s death, his enemies became nervous. Rebecca was torn; should she side with Callum who had Margaret under his roof, or with the people she had trusted for years, but whom Callum felt murdered her late husband?
A Devil in Scotland is the third book in the intriguing Suzanne Enoch’s No Ordinary Hero’s series. I found the book engaging, the storyline captivating, and the dialogue realistic. A Devil in Scotland is an enjoyable read.
Thank you, St. Martin’s Press and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.
