“It’s time to fall in love with Suzanne Enoch.” — Lisa Kleypas
Devilishly handsome Highlander Aden MacTaggert knows next to nothing about the ways of the ton, but he most certainly knows his way around gaming halls and womens’ hearts. Still, Aden is not sure how he’ll manage to find a Sassenach bride in time to save his family’s inheritance. When his almost sister-in-law Miranda comes to him for assistance, he proposes a partnership: She will help him navigate London society and he’ll teach her everything about wagering…and winning back her freedom. The beautiful, clever lass intrigues Aden—but is she playing her own game, or are the sparks between them real? He is accustomed to risking his pocket. But betting on Miranda’s love is a game he can’t afford to lose. . .
The flawless second Regency era romance in Enoch's Wild Wicked Highlanders series (after It's Getting Scot in Here) hinges on a pair of enemies turned lovers who gamble with both their money and their hearts. Miranda Harris has always loathed games of chance, and her hatred only grows when her brother trades her hand in marriage to clear his gambling debt. Miranda would rather go to debtor's prison than marry the odious Capt. Robert Vale, but before she resigns herself to a cell, she tries her hand at winning her freedom back, reluctantly seeking the help of handsome master gambler Aden MacTaggert. In order to keep parental funds flowing into his Highland estate, Aden must marry a London-bred woman. He agrees to teach Miranda about gambling ostensibly in exchange for lessons on London manners that will help him meet a match, but really because he's charmed by witty, outspoken Miranda and hopes to turn her disdain for him into affection. High stakes, spirited characters, and off-the-charts chemistry keep the pages turning as Enoch balances humor, heat, and tension. This is Highland romance done right.

I received an ARC of this book to read through NetGalley in exchange for a fair review. Scot Under the Covers is the second book in Suzanne Enoch's engaging The Wild Wicked Highlanders Series. I do think you should read the first book, It's Getting Scot in Here first as it gives you some insight into the hero Aden MacTaggert's character and I enjoyed it immensely. Miranda Harris's brother, who is engaged to marry Aden MacTaggert's sister, has foolishly allowed himself to be lured into gambling and accruing a debt that he would not be able to repay in his lifetime. When the villain who owns his debt suggests that he will forgive the debt for Miranda's hand in marriage, Matthew Harris is more than willing to hand her over. Feeling trapped, she asks Aden for his help because she needs some insight as to how a gambler would think even though she despises gamblers and wants nothing to do with Aden otherwise. Aden realizing that she's handed him an out from the agreement to marry an English bride his mother is holding over him nevertheless is intrigued by Miranda and seeks to help her find an escape from the cage her brother's actions have created. With a seriously hot hero and a strong and independent heroine, this book is one that will keep your reading way past your bedtime. Medium Steam.
