THE DEVIL WEARS KILTS
A new series begins with a touching, humorous love story that the talented Enoch pulls off with panache. It’s so easy to adore the rugged Highland hero as he meets his match in a very proper British heroine, proving opposites attract. Building their relationship on witty repartee that heightens the sexual tension is just one of the ways Enoch makes the story memorable. The cast of secondary characters enhances the plot, but best of all is the delightful, tender and utterly marvelous deep-sigh conclusion.
Highlander Ranulf MacLawry, Marquis of Glengask, storms into Lady Hanover’s town house to reclaim his runaway sister. Ranulf wants her safe in Scotland. When Charlotte Hanover refuses to allow Ranulf to take her, he submits to a plan to escort his sister to all social events. He’s not pleased to have been outmaneuvered by a vision in silk. He is too rough around the edges and hotheaded to suit Charlotte, but as their battle continues she sees Ranulf is as much brain as brawn. Charlotte realizes she wants this marvelous man, with all his endearing flaws. All she has to do is prove her love for him. (ST. MARTIN’S, Dec., 336 pp., $7.99)
