I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Before she could face forward again, he caught her gaze with those impossibly light-green eyes of his. “Too late. I’m already charmed, adae. Whether ye dunnae wish me to tell ye so or not.” And she was charmed, as well. If only he’d been the oldest MacTaggert. If only her mother wasn’t mad for a title in the family. If only, if only, if only.

I really, really enjoyed It's Getting Scot in Here, my first book (ever!) by the talented Suzanne Enoch.

From that title, I was expecting something fun and funny and full of romance, and that's exactly what I got.

I loved how both MCs were instantly likable. Of course I adore an outspoken female MC, but we also get a hulking, masculine male MC who loves strong women (hallelujah) and isn't afraid to be himself. In fact, both MCs were truly their own people, and it made the story a joy t

This was pretty freaking adorable.  Suzanne Enoch is an author I’ve seen round about in my book musings but have never read.  It’s Getting Scot in Here is the first book in a new Wild Wicked Highlander series focused on three brothers from the Highlands, raised solely by their father, after their mother returned to London with their baby sister.  Her absence came with a price; each son would have to mar

I have no idea what brought this to my attention. But my library had the audio version (through Overdrive) so I put a hold on it. And it arrived at a fortuitous time when I had nothing better going for my commute. All of which is to say that I had as close to no expectations as I ever have and maybe that's why I found it so enjoyable.

Well, plus Niall is just exactly my jam. He's that big, competent guy who knows his place in the world and does his best to take care of those he loves. Even better

Was it nice? Yes it was.

Was it wonderful? Mmmmm... no.

I liked Niall. He was the man who did everything to smooth things out: with his brothers, expecially Coll and everybody else who had a conflict with somebody.

Amelia-Rose not so much... She was a victim of her mother and didn't so anything to rebel, but just accepted what was told her. The height of her rebellion is to express her thoughts to other people. Meh...

The only really interesting character was Francesca who had backbone and knew wha

This was a wonderful introduction to a new series. The writing was excellent and the main characters were very likable. While I love the title of the book, I think a more appropriate title would have been ‘The Mothers From Hell’. I’m sure I was supposed to start out disliking Francesca and then soften toward her as the book moves on. That didn’t happen, because, bottom line, she abandoned three little boys and never c

This series is about three Scottish brothers who were raised in the Highlands by their father after their English mother left them at an early age. Their parents' marriage was a hasty love match that resulted in a rocky marriage with two very hardheaded people. After years of being unable to compromise, they decided to live apart and split up

Good story. Witty and entertaining.
It is hard not to love all of these Highlander brothers. They each have great personalities that just stand out and suck you right in. Rough and tough with the wildness of the country they come from, London will never be the same! And Niall is a sweetheart! I just love him.

The plot is unique and I have to confess, I hated the brother’s mother for most of the story. It was only in the end that I learned to like her, but only for her actions. Sh
A fan of Suzanne Enoch, I thought the story was delightful and entertaining..

Amelia-Rose Baxter's parents want nothing more from their daughter in that she makes a match that comes with a tilte to elevate them in society. Very outspoken, she's determined to stay true to herself and marry someone who will accept her for with all her shortcomings. Unfortunately they would need to reside in and love all of London.

Niall and Amelia-Rose were a perfect match. I loved their banter and watching Amelia-Rose come out of her shell. She blossomed under Niall’s protectively nurturing personality. He was a fixer and it was rather cute how much he tried to help her, and his family, while ignoring his own needs and wants, but where there’s a will...there’s always a way!

This is the first book to a new series and I think it’s off to a good start! Of course, a sexy Scot is always a good thing and we are introduced to th

Aaaghhh I love Suzanne Enoch!! Her books are so fun!! Excited to read this one
Very sweet story of three Highlander brothers that are summoned to London by the mother they did not see for 17 years.
Holding the purse strings that can save their home, their estranged mother demands all of them marry proper English ladies before their sister’s wedding takes place.
She also demands that their older brother, a viscount heir to an earldom, marries the lady of her choice: Lady Amelia Rose.
None of them are pleased to be forced to marry, most of all to English ladies not of their ch

*clears throat*

Eh. That's almost all I've got.

The tension was so good in the beginning and unbundled by the end. A brush of the hand had me on the edge of my seat but love declarations left me cold.

Shallow secondary characters just didn't add up too much for me.

So. Eh.2.5 I liked the beginning, but it fizzled out
Finally finished listening! Took me about three times as long as most books. I have enjoyed many Suzanne Enoch books, but this one was not for me. Pretty boring. Didn't like any of the characters. Not the mother or father, any of three Highlander brothers, or Amelia Rose. I won't be continuing this series. ...more

Oooohhh, I really liked this one! Niall MacTaggert was super swoony and yet still alpha. Watching him fall in love with Amelia Rose was sweet and at times funny. I had a smile on my face through this whole book!

For a romance novel, instalove is always a hard trope to handle. And while our hero and heroine don't fall in love instantly, the whole book takes place in a span of less than a month. So they meet, fall in love, and then marry in the span of about 3 weeks. Not very believable sadly and that took at least a star off of my rating. But on the other hand I really liked the premise of this story. It's different and interesting and I enjoyed reading about the 3 MacTaggert brothers (although I liked A ...more

I had seen this one around and knew a few friends who loved it, so I couldn’t resist requesting it.

I loved Amelia-Rose and Niall. She’s a little prickly and he’s a little pushy and they’re both really good and loyal people. It was amusing reading their banter and fascination with each other. I especially loved the steadfastness of Francesca and I hope we get to see her in other books.

Plot wise, it was mostly good. I enjoyed reading the shift from Niall making excuses for his brother to wanting

Overall this was a very fun book to read. There were a few spots where it dragged a little, but the rest more than made up for it. The three MacTaggert brothers have grown up in Scotland without the benefit of their mother's presence. Seventeen years earlier, Francesca had had enough of the isolation and left her husband and three sons behind, taking only her infant daughter with her to London. There had been no contact in all that time, until a letter arrived, informing them of their sister's u ...more

I'm happy that there is a new series from Suzanne Enoch. The premise is interesting with three sons being coerced into a reunion with their mother, who abandoned them, taking only their sister with her, for a life back in London.
I know more will be unveiled, but I am having a hard time seeing how the boys will be forgiving of their mother's leaving. Seventeen years is a long time to stay away from your sons just to give your daughter a civilized life.
Onto the romance between Amelia-Rose Baxter,

Rating: 3.5 stars

I kind of wanted to shake Amelia-Rose several time in this book. I had to keep reminding myself that she is a VERY sheltered nineteen year old and that I should have patience with her... BUT OH MY GOSH, I've gotten so used to strong and sassy women in my historical romances, and it was difficult to watch Amelia-Rose struggle so hard to figure out who she is. Still, she goes through a lot of personal growth throughout this book, which is something I love to see in a romance novel

4.5 stars, rounded up.

Angus MacTaggert, the Earl of Aldriss needed a rich wife, so he left his beloved Scotland and ventured to London, where he met Francesca Oswell, the only child of the very rich Viscount Hornford. They fell madly in love and married within days - soon after Angus took his bride back to the highlands and some hard truths were learned, like Francesca didn't really like the isolation of the highlands and Angus learned that Francesca's father made sure his money stayed in France

In order to ensure continued use of their mother's funds, which support their estate, Aldriss Park, and all of its dependents, they must play by Francesca's rules.

Scottish hijinks!

I must say, I enjoyed this immensely. Nothing like the brawny alpha males being dragged into doing something against their will. Backstory--the Sassenach mother of three young sons, Coll, Aden, and Niall fled to London from the wilds of the Highlands for her own good reasons, taking their young sister Eloise. Now comes the tricky part. Upon her marriage Francesca controlled the purse strings (highly unusual). But then her father, the Viscount of Hornford "had more money than Mid

This actually might be my first highlander romance? I'm not sure. I may have read one or two back when I was teen, but certainly in the last few years since I've been back in HR hardcore, it's the first one. And it's super fun!

The premise of this series is absolutely adorable. It starts with their parents, a love match initially, splitting up because they're too different and both stubborn af. She takes their daughter with her back to London, and he stays up in the Highlands to raise their three

A fun new Highlander series from Suzanne Enoch. The MacTaggert brothers' entrance was spectacular and getting to know each of them (Coll, Aden, and Niall) as the book progressed was enjoyable. They were not necessarily nice, more often rough and rude, but they love one another and have the best intentions even if they didn't show it to the hated Sassenachs.

Being a series starter, It's Getting Scot in Here is understandably filled with introduction of multiple characters, but it became very obvio

One of my favorite books is from her "London's Perfect Scoundrel" and that is one of many of hers that I truly enjoyed, why am I telling you this you may be asking if it has nothing to do with this story, well because I didn't love this one and I know that to me it is not reflected of her work.
