My One True Kidnap victim…

Why is it always so much more disappointing when what you wished for is granted…and not all it’s cracked up to be? In My One True Highlander we meet Marjorie, the Duke of Lattimer’s sister. Now Marjorie hasn’t been a duke’s sister for long. Well, she’s always been Gabriel’s sister, but Gabriel hasn’t been a duke for long. What she thought would be an escape from a life as a well-educated Lady’s Companion to a life as a successful lady herself, hasn’t turn

This book was so much fun!!!

...not exactly like this, but I coulnd't resist... LOL

This is essentially a story from enemies to lovers, but it is marvelously done! Usually I find annoying if there're many instances of inner musings, but here they were planty but excellent.
They were somewhere between endearing, hilarious and serious. What an excellent mix!!!!

I loved Graeme and his honour! He's desperately trying to do the right thing, but his opponents are his brothers and the woman they've kidnap

This was like a nice book vacation to the Scottish Highlands. I like that Marjorie is practical but dreamy and Graeme is a good guy who has dedicated his young life to taking care of family. I personally don't get tired of Scottish books, although I can get bored with Regencies, a little. Nice that this has plenty of the Scottish vibe to give it some pizazz. Plus the kids were a lot of fun.

Words could not described how happy I was when I received an ARC of “My One True Highlander” by Suzanne Enoch. I mean, Enoch’s one of my favorite authors of all times and I’ve been reading her books since I was fifteen, so I had high expectations towards this book.
Unfortunately, I couldn’t finished “My One True Highlander” because I find it to be really boring. I think this book had a really good start, the beginning was very entertaining and I found myself curious

MY ONE TRUE HIGHLANDER is the second book in the No Ordinary Hero series by Suzanne Enoch. Now I’m a huge fan of Suzanne Enoch’s Historicals. I think if you’re a fan of Lisa Kleypas, Julia Quinn, and even Tessa Dare, then you’ll probably like Enoch as well. However, this book does have a different feel to it than some of her other books. While the others tend to be a little more witty, this one has a greater intensity to it. I say that mostly because of the hero. As you can expect with the

Suzanne Enoch's highlanders are usually not real highlanders. They were mere shadows of their ancestors, the "tamed" version, so to speak. One could look at Suzanne Enoch's "highlander stories" almost as regency stories, just featuring Scottish heroes or heroines. Think ballgowns with a brogue.

The above is true for this book as well. I have read most of her famous "Scandalous Highlanders" series and only liked the first book. This book reads almost like the old series but honestly if it was don

Refer to Mei's review here cause that was all it took to get me reading this.

A first of it's kind for me and not what embodies Highlanders in my opinion but this was so much fun to read. No stops, finished it in one sitting.
Which is also why this is a very short review. There's only so much abuse one's bladder can take. xD

One "true" thing about this - it started out pretty good and had some cute moments throughout. Unfortunately, I didn't quite feel the romance between our leads. When they first meet, you just know that sparks are gonna fly, but it doesn't quite get there. I also wish that some of these authors wouldn't have the couples hopping into to bed so soon after they meet! Take a little time to at least give us the pretense that they are falling in love.

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.

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 sto

“My One True Highlander” by Suzanne Enoch is perfect catnip for lovers of the Scottish highlander subgenre of romance. I’ll admit it: I’m addicted to this genre. There’s something inherently romantic to me about the Highlands and a kilt, a brogue and a tall Highlander. If you are like me, and enjoy these things along with a great, funny plot and a sassy heroine, you will totally enjoy this book as much as I did.

Let me be clear on something, I don't care what the situation, when you are having sex with someone you kidnapped and are holding prisoner it is a form of rape in my small mind. Just because it may seem consensual I see Stockholm Syndrome, call me odd but it is a bias I am not ashamed of at all.

I have talked to many people that have read historical romance for years (I tend to avoid it) and have no problem with swooning heroines and kidnapping so obviously it must happen a lot in this genre whic

I read one book and enjoyed so much, I highly anticipated book 2. My One True Highlander can be read alone and was just as delightful as the first. Despite the unorthodox way they met each other Graeme and Marjorie's relationship developed wonderfully. The pacing was a bit slow in the beginning. However, the simmer made it even more worthwhile when things started to heat up between them. Graeme's brother Connell was a delight, and he made the overall story even richer.

This title wasn't really my cup of tea, but I did enjoy the beginning.

Marjorie Forrester is a recent woman of means intent on traveling to Scotland to visit her brother and attend his wedding. Graeme is a highlander trying to take care of his younger brothers, keep their home, and keep from angering their clan chieftain. When his brothers kidnap Ree, Graeme believes the only alternative is for him to marry Ree.

Honestly, the best part of the book is the beginning. I was fully invested after

My One Tue Highlander is the second book in the No Ordinary Hero Series by Suzanne Enoch. The story introduces Lady Marjorie Forrester who is the sister of the Duke of Lattimer (the Hero in the first book in the series). These siblings were not of the aristocracy but inheritance enabled them to gain unexpected titles that changed their lives.

Witty, hilarious and understated. A love story with a difference!

The major part of this novel takes place in the raw Scottish Highlands of 1812. Graeme, Viscount Maxton, is struggling to keep his crofters and land together. His young brothers decide to take things in hand, by kidnapping the sister of their new neighbour, the Duke of Lattimer, and coincidentally, the deadly enemy of their clan chief, the Duke of Dunncraigh. A clan chief Graeme constantly bumps up against, a man he doesn't like or

This is such a fun and entertaining story, the chemistry between our two leads is electric whether that is when they are bickering or when they let themselves succumb to temptation. For a good portion of the book they are bickering or snipping at each other but it is so funny, especially when Graeme shackles Marjorie to the bed because of a jam episode – you have to read it.

This is my first dip into Suzanne Enoch’s work, I have read so many good things about her books that I knew that I had read

I enjoyed My One True Highlander tremendously. This book was so much fun to read. I've come to love Scottish stories. I started rooting got Marjorie and Graeme from the beginning of this story. Their backstories were just so hard, and I hoped for happiness for the both of them. Enoch has a beautifully written story with this one.
When a cloth went over her mouth she wasn't surprised, but she was furious. A woman should never be kidnapped once -- much less twice.

While I had not come across Enoch's books in my fairly recent but ever-growing love for historical romances, when I saw that this particular plot featured a strapping highlander and a kidnapped englishwomen, I couldn't resist dipping my toe into MY ONE TRUE HIGHLANDER.

And one toe eventually became my whole foot, leg.. well, you get the idea. I fell right into this
