Description

WILD AT HEARTScotland, 1812: He's ferocious and rugged to the bone, an English soldier more at home on the battlefield than in any Society drawing room. And when Major Gabriel Forrester learns that he's inherited the massive Scottish Highlands title and estate of a distant relation, the last thing he wants to do is give up the intensity of the battlefield for the too-soft indulgences of noble life. But Gabriel Forrester does not shirk his responsibilities, and when he meets striking, raven-eyed lass Fiona Blackstock, his new circumstances abruptly become more intriguing.Like any good Highlander, Fiona despises the English—and the new Duke of Lattimer is no exception. Firstly, he is far too attractive for Fiona's peace of mind. Secondly, his right to "her" castle is a travesty, since it's been clan Maxwell property for ages. As the two enter a heated battle of wills, an unexpected passion blazes into a love as fierce as the Highlands themselves. Is Fiona strong enough to resist her enemy's advances—or is Gabriel actually her hero in disguise?

"It's time to fall in love with Suzanne Enoch." —Lisa Kleypas

        Starred review from August 29, 2016
        Enoch (Some Like It Scot) produces another bold Highland fling in this stirring historical romance. Maj. Gabriel Forrester is enjoying the Duke of Wellington’s 1812 campaign near Salamanca in Spain when he receives the unexpected news that he is now the Duke of Lattimer, a title that comes with a 10,000-acre estate in Scotland. The estate was originally owned by Scottish lairds, and it’s been cursed ever since it was taken over by the hated English. He arrives to find the place run by black-eyed Scottish spitfire Fiona Blackstock, who despises all Englishmen. She predictably goes weak in the knees in Gabriel’s presence, disguising it by raging at his English arrogance—which is a cover for his own developing attraction to her. Gradually, they manage to overcome all the barriers that separate them. Enoch alternates Fiona’s spunky feminism with Gabriel’s down-to-earth pragmatism in this adventurous tale of sex and war, and Gabriel proves himself a dashing expert at both. With colorful secondary characters, judicious lashings of Scots dialect, and lush summertime Highland landscapes, Enoch creates a heady romantic atmosphere that’s sure to captivate the genre’s eager audience.

        A career soldier inherits a dukedom and a crumbling Scottish castle. When he travels there to confront the recalcitrant steward, he is unexpectedly captivated by both the place and the steward's sister.Maj. Gabriel Forrester finds out in the same breath that he is great-nephew to the Duke of Lattimer, that the duke has died, and that he, Gabriel, is the only living heir. He's forced to leave the Spanish battlefield to sort out his unwanted inheritance, especially his estate in Scotland. When Gabriel reaches the estate, he finds that the steward went missing four years ago, and his fiery sister, Fiona Blackstock, is running things at Lattimer Castle. English soldiers are none too popular at Lattimer, but Gabriel is used to facing down enemies. "This is my first time being in hostile territory that I actually own," he says. In addition to suspicious tenants and servants, Gabriel must unravel the reason Lattimer has failed to turn a profit in recent years. Is it the overly large household staff, all kinsmen hired by Fiona to save them from poverty? Is it the loyal Maxwell clan, who wants to sabotage Lattimer's holdings so their own clan chief can buy the property for a good price? Gabriel has every reason to suspect Fiona of being sympathetic to the mischief-makers who have been stealing the estate's sheep, damaging its irrigation equipment, and putting its flour mill out of commission. But he soon sees that Fiona will be loyal to anyone who puts the interests of the estate's tenants first--even if that person is English. Enoch's (Some Like it Scot, 2015, etc.) new No Ordinary Hero series promises to be compelling from beginning to end, if this first installment is any indication. A thrilling and sexy story about the joy that can be found in doing one's duty. COPYRIGHT(1) Kirkus Reviews, ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.

        Starred review from September 15, 2016
        Major Gabriel Forrester is a career soldier and a legendary warrior. Revered by his troops and feared by his enemies, the Beast of Bussaco has centered his life around the battlefield. But then he inherits a title and three holdings, the largest one a castle in Scotland. Fiona Blackstock has been managing the Duke of Lattimer's estate quite well on her own, thank you. The last thing she wants is supervision, and certainly not from a stuffy, snobby, stiff-necked English duke. The last thing Gabriel wants is to move to Scotland and manage an estate, its village, and everything that goes with it. Soon, it becomes apparent that the key to his success is feisty Fiona, who knows how to use her intelligence, hard work, caring heart, and, yes, feminine wiles to keep the estate going. Fiona is universally respected and loved, and Gabriel needs her endorsement to gain the trust of his people, which is no easy task since the memory of the British massacre at Culloden is still strong. The latest from the ever-popular Enoch is steamy and bubbling with humor, a scrumptious tale to begin her No Ordinary Hero series.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2016, American Library Association.)
