Blurb: WILD AT HEART
Scotland, 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?
Review: What a wickedly engaging story from a master of historical romance. The pacing, the characters, and the Lattimer estate itself are all players in this battle of hearts that Suzanne Enoch spins to perfection.
Major Gabriel Forrester is accustomed to the life of a soldier, living on the battlefield, going from one fight to another. So when he learns that he is the presumptive heir to a huge Scottish Highlands title, he’s taken aback.
What’s he going to do with it? That’s not the life he wants to lead!
So Gabriel takes some time off and heads back home. His plan? Find managers for the properties and then head back to war. But he gets another surprise when he arrives at his huge Scottish cattle, Lattimer.
His estate manager is a woman.
I really liked this story filled with all the intrigue you’d expect from mixing Scottish clans, a stubborn soldier, and a delectable estate manager. Will Fiona’s clan loyalty be tested by her new feelings for Gabriel? Or will she ignore the sparkling chemistry between the two of them and stay true to Clan Maxwell? Can the soldier turn into a man of peace?
Spellbinding tale of romance and mystery with sassy dialogue, exciting action, and intimate feelings between two stubborn characters who need to learn how to compromise in order to save the ones they love. Thanks!
