This sinfully sexy new romance from Maya Banks features a remarkable woman whose rare gift teaches a gruff Scottish warrior how to listen with his heart.
Eveline Armstrong is fiercely loved and protected by her powerful clan, but outsiders consider her “touched.” Beautiful, fey, with a level, intent gaze, she doesn’t speak. No one, not even her family, knows that she cannot hear. Content with her life of seclusion, Eveline has taught herself to read lips and allows the outside world to view her as daft. But when an arranged marriage into a rival clan makes Graeme Montgomery her husband, Eveline accepts her duty—unprepared for the delights to come. Graeme is a rugged warrior with a voice so deep and powerful that his new bride can hear it, and hands and kisses so tender and skilled that he stirs her deepest passions.
Graeme is intrigued by the mysterious Eveline, whose silent lips are ripe with temptation and whose bright, intelligent eyes can see into his soul. As intimacy deepens, he learns her secret. But when clan rivalries and dark deeds threaten the wife he has only begun to cherish, the Scottish warrior will move heaven and earth to save the woman who has awakened his heart to the beautiful song of a rare and magical love.

Since all I read are historical romance novels, I couldn't wait for "Never Seduce a Scot"---my first Maya Banks book--- to become available after reading the synopsis. It sounded interesting and unique. Finished it in two days and found it to be just ok.
First, the title is misleading. I found no seduction scenes and only one---maybe two---sensual scenes.
Second, where are the "plaids?" I thought all Scot clans wore plaids. The word does not appear.
Third, the writing is too 21st century--American English!
Despite these problems, I did find the hero to be a man any woman would love to love!
Compared to some of my favorites: Jo Beverley, Jane Feather, Susan Johnson, Julie Garwood, Virginia Henley, Brenda Joyce, and Julia Quinn, Ms. Banks' latest historical work is mediocre at best.
I'm not sure if I'll spend $7.99 on the sequel.
Never Seduce A Scot
I have read numerous Highland Historical Romance from many talented authors that I have truly enjoyed but Never Seduce A Scot has become my favorite of all. Maya Banks has truly provided her fans with the best of her talent in this book....the storyline events, characters, hero and heroine, excitement, adventure and emotions!! Excellent book! You will not be disappointed! I look forward to Maya's next release in this series!
:) I loved this story. Can't wait for Highlander most wanted
