My One True Highlander by Suzanne Enoch
Date Read: April 4th 2017
Genre: Historical, Romance
Rugged highlander Graeme has one thing on his mind—take a stand against the horrible Englishman Lattimer and he will be rewarded with enough money to be set for life. But when his reckless younger brothers take it one step too far and kidnaps a young woman on her way to see Lattimer, Graeme has to intervene. He cannot send the lady back without his kin getting in trouble. And when a damsel this beautiful is dropped into your lap, it’s hard to let her go...
Marjorie should be terrified she’s been captured by highland scoundrels, but it’s hard to live in terror when your captor is a devilishly handsome and sinfully tempting as Graeme is. She cannot stay by his side forever—no matter how her heart may pound at the thought—but Graeme seems to have other plans. This wicked highlander is out to seduce her and doesn’t plan to stop until she’s in his arms...forever...

Received for Review (Author)
This is the second book in Suzanne Enoch’s No Ordinary Hero series and I enjoyed it more than the first. It is a wonderful story with lots of humor and romance.
The heroine, Marjorie Forrester, is tired of London. When her soldier brother, Gabriel, inherits a dukedom and moves to Scotland he leaves her the mansion in London. But the “ton” doesn’t accept a former companion as a lady and she is lonely. Upon hearing Gabriel is to be wed, she and her companion, Hortensia, head for Scotland. While stopping at an inn near her brother’s property she is kidnapped.
Laird Graeme Maxton is raising his 3 younger brothers without much money. They decide to help him by kidnapping Lady Marjorie. The older 2 boys think their clan chief, who hates her brother, will pay well for her. Graeme decides to keep her until he can figure out how to return her without his brothers getting in more trouble. And then the fun starts. Hortensia may also find romance in the Highlands.
I especially love 8 year old Connell who rescues orphaned animals. He’ll steal your heart and I hope he gets a HEA when he’s grown. This book is a keeper that I’ll re-read. Honestly, who wouldn’t love a gorgeous man in a kilt caring for his younger brothers?
During her non-reading time you can find her hanging with her rescue furr children named after book characters: Lizzie a beautiful cattle dog mix (Pound Pup), Cinder a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Pound Pup), and Minerva a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Foster Fail). Gathering with friends and family, attending conventions, watching movies/tv shows, rooting for the 49rs, and crocheting.
