Wicked intrigue unfolds as an unlikely marriage leads to a path of risky desire in the lush, green Scottish Highlands
Born into riches and groomed in English luxury, Margot Armstrong didn't belong in a Scottish chieftain's devil-may-care world. Three years ago she fled their marriage of convenience and hasn't looked back—except to relive the moments spent in wild, rugged Arran McKenzie's passionate embrace. But as their respective countries' fragile unity threatens to unravel, Margot must return to her husband to uncover his role in the treachery before her family can be accused of it.
Red-haired, green-eyed Margot was Arran's beautiful bride. Her loss has haunted him, but her return threatens everything he has gained. As the Highland mists carry whispers of an English plot to seize McKenzie territory, he must outmaneuver her in games of espionage…and seduction. But even as their secrets tangle together, there's nothing to prevent love from capturing them both and leading them straight into danger.
I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
5 out of 5 stars
This book was such a treat for me. The reuniting husband and wife has become a favorite trope of mine in historical romance this year and Wild Wicked Scot was such a great example as to why I love it so much! Seriously, this was an exceptional historical romance. On top of the reunion trope, I loved this romance in general. Everything that was going on between Margot and Arran was just so good. I loved the back and forth between these two as they both learned to trust in each other and find some common ground so that they could get their HEA. As for the the plot point that was focused on whether or not Arran was a traitor was all really thrilling. I was on the edge of my seat the entire time trying to figure out how everything was going to play out. The people behind the accusations against Arran weren't a complete surprise, but it was well done and I loved the way it brought Margot and Arran together and really solidified their relationship. Overall, I loved this book to pieces! It was absolutely wonderful in every way and while it is only the first book by this author I have read, it definitely won't be the last!
