IS ALL FAIR IN LOVE AND WAR?
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.

A Laugh-Out-Loud, Captivating Story
My One True Highlander is a perfectly paced, humorous, and highly entertaining historical fiction romance. I loved it!
Marjorie Forrester was stunned by her sudden status and wealth. Her brother, unexpectedly, became the new Duke of Lattimer, and she a Lady. Marjorie’s brother generously gave her a lavish home in London to enjoy. The transition, however, was proving to be a difficult one. Lady Marjorie hired a companion to help her become accepted by London’s polite society; something she has always wanted.
Marjorie was tired of listening to her companion’s lectures on how improper and unsafe it was, to show up at the Duke of Latimer’s castle, unannounced. Lady Marjorie was aware that her companion was only concerned for her welfare, but what kind of surprise would it be, if her brother knew when to expect her?
Lady Marjorie was furious when she found herself kidnapped in Scotland and shackled to a bedpost. How dare the despicable Scottish barbarian lock her up without so much as an explanation. Oh, how she wished she would have listened to her companion. However, the longer Lady Marjorie stayed in Graeme Maxton’s home, the more she realized how lucky she had been. There was a war going on between clans and not only was she right smack in the middle of it; she was also the prized pawn. Lady Marjorie shuddered to think of what could have happened if the opposing clan had been the one to kidnap her.
I enjoyed this laugh-out-loud historical fiction novel immensely. It’s superbly written with witty dialogue, likable characters, and a captivating plot. I especially loved the hysterical banter between Laird Graeme Maxton and Lady Marjorie Forrester!
Thank you, St. Martin’s Press and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.
My One True Highlander
I enjoy reading Suzanne's books. There is a lot of trouble and happy in between. This is set in Scotland. Graeme has problems with his clan. He is poor for a Viscount, what with running his clan and his 3 young brothers. The boys get together to kidnap Lady Marjorie to make her brother. a Duke, to give them money to help Graeme. Graeme locks her up. Major Spoiler. Then he has to kidnap her companion. Spoiler. I like Connel, the youngest one, who saves every hurt or lost animal and hides them in the Castle! Dunncraich is the highest chief as a Duke. He is evil and dangerous. He hears of the Lady and comes to get her for blackmail. Major Spoiler! He faces Graeme and the Duke of Lattimer. Marjorie puts them all in their places. For awhile. I love the Highlands even though I won't get there. I learned some things I never knew. I liked this story. I hope you will choose to read this book. You will enjoy this book! I volunteered to read and review this book.
