A ROGUE FOR EVERY LADY
London, 1817: Stuck in a Mayfair ballroom thanks to his lovestruck brother, highlander Arran MacLawry wants nothing but a bit of distraction from an arranged betrothal-and a clever auburn-haired lass in a vixen's mask promises just that...until he discovers that she's the granddaughter of the Campbell, chief of clan MacLawry's longtime rival. Despite their families' grudging truce, falling for fiery Mary Campbell is a notion too outlandish even for this Highlander...
THE THRILL OF THE FORBIDDEN
Raised on tales of savage MacLawrys, Mary is stunned to realize the impressively strapping man in the fox's mask is one of them. Surely the enemy shouldn't have such a broad chest, and such a seductive brogue? Not that her curiosity matters-any dalliance between them is strictly forbidden, and she's promised to another. But with the crackling spark between them ready to ignite, love is worth every risk...in Rogue with a Brogue by Suzanne Enoch
"One of my very favorite authors." -Julia Quinn
Enoch (The Devil Wears Kilts) strikes all the right notes in this charming 19th-century caper. Despite a tenuous truce, the old feud between the MacLawrys and the Campbells still simmers. Arran MacLawry, a rugged Highlander to the core, chafes at a Mayfair masked ball, where he has to behave himself while his brother and clan chieftain tries to build interclan alliances to cement the MacLawry fortunes. Wearing a fox mask, Arran encounters a ravishing green-eyed Lady Vixen and falls under her spell only to learn she's Mary Campbell. The chase is on, but which fox is the pursuer? After Mary lets Arran steal her to the wild North rather than submit to the dull suitors her parents prefer, Enoch effectively balances powerfully crescendoing romantic interludes with stages of a rattling coach ride. Fox and vixen must save each other at least once from disaster, keeping the action moving to a colorful, convincing climax.
Suzanne Enoch, one of my favorite authors, delivers another great romance! With its likable leads, sweet romance and suspenseful plot, it was easy to get sucked into the story wholeheartedly. You can't help but root for Arran (who falls hard...what girl wouldn't swoon for that?) and Mary.
Round of applause
This is the first book I read from Suzanne Enoch! I didn’t know that it was the second. Finding her book at a local bookstore that resells donated books. I was drawn to the idea of a romance with Mary belonging to another. I did read the negative comments on here. Seeing other readers dislike the way Aran talks etc. Or how it was a constant reminder of them from two clan families. Did spark an interest which kept me reading. I haven’t read mass paperback in a long time. In the past I gave Harlequin a shot and wasn’t connecting. With St. Martin’s Press I had a whole other positive vibe! This book will keep you hooked until the very end.
