"I love you, Eveline," he whispered, though he knew she could not hear him. "Somehow, I'll make you hear me and you'll know that I love you as fiercely as it's possible for a man to love a woman."

This was my first Maya Banks book and I have been avoiding this author a lot, I don't know why! But finally I have read one of her books and Holy Hell! I am in love! NEVER SEDUCE A SCOT was one of the best Historical Romances I have ever read! Maya Banks has become an immediate favorite and I will definitely be checking out more of her books! But I gotta say it again, I am in love!

The Montgomerys and The Armstrongs have been at war with each other for a long time. King Alexander II is sick of having two of his allies at war with each other so he declares that Graeme Montgomery and Eveline Armstrong will marry and hopes this marriage between the two will slowly bring peace between the two clans. Let just say everything starts as hell in the beginning, but eventually by the end peace definitely happens!

Then she turned her gaze on Graeme. "I know not whether she's afflicted or daft or whatever it is that's said about her. I only know that she's courageous. And whether she speaks or doesn't has little to do with the fact that she can communicate because she made it very clear what she wanted --- nay, demanded ---from me."

Eveline Armstrong is our lovely heroine of the story and she is such a beautiful heroine on the inside and outside. Eveline is loved, cherished and protected by her family. There is rumor going around that she is touched and defective by outsiders. She has not uttered a single word either since her accident. But the truth is that she just cannot hear. She is able to read lips. She accepts her marriage to Graeme. Eveline becomes attached to Graeme quite quickly and she becomes loyal to her.

He hadn't expected such a thing. Never would he have imagined feeling this way about the bride who had been forced upon him. As he glanced down at her golden head, he couldn't imagine it any other way. He didn't wait to imagine being without her.

Graeme Montgomery is our sexy hero of the story and Man, oh man! I couldn't ask for someone better! Graeme is definitely intrigued by his wife. He is gentle and kind with her and treats her like a treasure and desires her as a man should a woman. He is perfect and by the end, he loves Eveline so much that he won't let his hatred for the Armstrongs ruin what he has with Eveline. He loves her too much! Definitely my kind of highland hero!

She smiled. "I quite like you, husband." He blinked in surprise at her pronouncement. Then he laughed. "I like you, too, Eveline." Then he realized the one word she hadn't said and he was suddenly filled with impatience, wanting to hear it from her lips.

One thing I didn't like is the way that The Montgomerys treat Eveline. I mean, even after Graeme makes it known how she should be treated. It takes Graeme threatening to throw his people out of the clan for them to finally get it. I feel that Graeme should have pushed the threatening speech a bit sooner, but that is just me. But it was a fun ride for the hate to peace thing develop! Eveline gained respect from the Montgomerys by the end, so all is good! NEVER SEDUCE A SCOT was definitely a page turner! As soon as I picked up the book I could not put it down until I finished reading it! I am so very excited for the next book in this amazing series and hopefully release date gets her quickly!

Meredith Barrons SO funny! I have yet to read any of her books either! I need to pick one up!


Mariya Haha! I know! I was gonna read one of her books from her other highlander books but never got a chance. Became much more interested in this book b/c of the cover and synopsis! I didn't expect to be so into it to finish it in 2 days, usually I don't do that unless it's really good! It was so freaking good! Haha! :))


Meredith Barrons Maybe I will start with this one then? I was going to start with the McCabe trilogy but since you recommend this one I will check it out!!
