A Devil in Scotland (No Ordinary Hero #3) by Suzanne Enoch
Synopsis: The dawning of desire…
1806, Scotland: Wild, reckless Callum MacCreath is in no hurry to become someone’s husband. But when his responsible, steady older brother Ian announces his engagement to their childhood friend Rebecca, Callum makes a startling discovery: he wants the lovely young lass for himself. But it’s too late, and when Ian banishes him for his duplicity, he’s only too happy to leave Scotland forever…
…is delicious and dangerous.
1816: Marrying Ian was the practical, logical thing for Becca to do. But once Callum sailed away to America, she missed his rakish charm and lust for life. Now, ten years later, Becca is a widow when a much-changed Callum returns to his Scottish homeland. Will he remember their spirited, fiery connection, or does he blame her for his brother’s unexpected death? This time neither of them can deny their scorching attraction, but will their hearts be burned in the blazing heat of scandal?
Review: This one was so full of adventure and plot. The characters had such a back story and obstacles ahead of them that I was 80% done with the book and thinking there was no way I was more then 50% done. It could have gone on for so much more but loved every second of it. It was entertaining, complex, passionate, and down right good. Callum had a lot of resentment to overcome before he could trust Becca again. Ten years is a long time to hold a grudge and think the worst of someone. She has buried a husband and a father and is looking to marry a man she has been friends with for ten years through his partnership with her late husband. What she doesn’t expect, or want, is Callum, her brother in law, to storm back into her life and accuse her of having something to do with his brother’s death and spouting notions of vengeance against a man who has been nothing but kind to her during the past 14 months. He is so sure of his suspicions and she can’t help remember a time when they had been friends though he broke her heart 10 years ago, that he draws her back in, in spite of herself. They didn’t come together ten years ago but now as they hunt for proof of murder conspiracies they can’t help but finally see in each other their other half. Their story was great, loved it and will have to go back and read book 1 and 2.
