Highlander Laird Evan MacNeil cannot believe Mistress Katie Sterling just shows up at the MacDuff castle with this faded piece of parchment laying claim to the lands he just legally inherited. Not that he really wants to be here in the lowlands, but he has responsibilities to his clan and the exasperating Katie has uprooted the remnants of her father’s clan and moved them across the country to live here. There’s no way he can leave to go back home now.
Katie has nowhere else to go and she refuses to bow down to the arrogant yet undeniably handsome Highlander. She’s had enough with men trying to control her and she is quite capable of handling herself.
Now that Evan must spar with a beautiful lass for the rights to the lands, he will fight to the end. This battle is nothing like the ones his ancestors fought with crossbows and boiling oil. They never wanted to bed the enemy.
I enjoyed this book. I always enjoy Ms. Hutton’s books. Katie was a strong and intelligent woman with a mind of her own. Evan was a alpha Laird who thought everyone did as he told them to. That is until Katie! I’m looking forward to Alister’s book and maybe wee Gavin.
I wish there was a bit more editing in the way they spoke.
A Scot to Wed is a real treat. Laird Evan MacNeil is serious, demanding, duty-conscience, and a little grumpy. Mistress Katie Sterling is smart, feisty, caring, and determined. They have nothing in common except their claims to MacDuff Castle. From the moment they meet, Evan is completely confounded by this strong, independent woman. They agree on almost nothing. It’s going to take some effort for these two to work together. They certainly cannot fall in love, but how can they not?
Evan and Katie are so much fun, and not really total opposites. Alasdair, Evan’s brother, is a sweetheart. Katie’s little brother, Gavin, is quite shy but takes to the MacNeil brothers. There is a big surprise for him (and his sister) at the end of the story. Katie’s clan members, people and pets, bring life to the castle and the story. There is a villain, a nasty piece of work, but no match for our hero and heroine. A well-written story that engages the reader from the start, strong likeable characters, a little danger and a lot of fun make this a must read. Another winner for Callie Hutton. I enjoyed it and happily recommend it.
