Scott Under the Covers (Wild Wicked Highlanders #2) by Suzanne Enoch
Synopsis: When a resourceful English lady and a hot-blooded Highlander join forces to trick a scoundrel, every rule will be broken!
Miranda Harris is known for her charm, wit, and ability to solve any problem she encounters. But when her brother lands neck-deep in gambling debt to a crafty villain and Miranda is subsequently blackmailed into marrying him, she must enlist the help of the devil himself to save the family honor―and herself.
Devilishly handsome Highlander Aden MacTaggert knows next to nothing about the ways of the ton, but he most certainly knows his way around gaming halls and womens’ hearts. Still, Aden is not sure how he’ll manage to find a Sassenach bride in time to save his family’s inheritance. When his almost sister-in-law Miranda comes to him for assistance, he proposes a partnership: She will help him navigate London society and he’ll teach her everything about wagering…and winning back her freedom. The beautiful, clever lass intrigues Aden―but is she playing her own game, or are the sparks between them real? He is accustomed to risking his pocket. But betting on Miranda’s love is a game he can’t afford to lose. . .
Review: This was a fun read, the passion was great, and the characters were strong and I enjoyed the plot a lot. I do wish Vale got more than he did in the end, punishment-wise. He seemed to give up too quickly at the end that it was almost anticlimactic. I loved the part where Aden had help getting into the bank. Overall, good story, and I loved how Miranda proposed to him instead of the classic guy doing the proposing. Too perfect.
