In the first book in the series, It's Getting Scot in Here, we were introduced to the wild, brawny, devilishly handsome MacTaggert brothers. The brothers, Coll, Aden, and Niall, have lived the last seventeen years without their mother - Aden was only ten when she left and Niall was seven. She got tired of the Highland's lack of social life and left with their year-old sister, Eloise. They haven’t heard a word from her

Scot Under the Covers is a true delight! It’s fast-paced and fun with characters who are easy to adore and a romance that will leave you smiling.

Aden is known as the “elusive MacTaggert brother.” He’s got a quick mind and skilled fingers that serve him well both in the cardroom and the bedroom, and he’s not unwilling to let the English’s dim views of Scotsmen work to his advantage. His mother’s decree that he marry an Englishwoman suddenly becomes a very appealing
Sheena ☆ Oh, the Sheenanigans!

“Scot Under the Covers” beginning was definitely touch and go and I was damned near tempted to drop this but the Book Gods above decided to answer my prayers by gracing me the perseverance to claim a few more pages then wa-lah! Matthew true intentions and dealings came to light which help lead and created the phenomenal partnership between Aden and Miranda. I immediately fell in love with their banterful relationship filled with stolen kisses, steamy moments, and badassery of our fine ass

Scot Under the Covers (Wild Wicked Highlanders #2) by Suzanne Enoch ia a very delightful story. This is the second in the series involving Aden MacTaggert who enjoys himself with women and wagering at the gaming tables. You have got to love these four Scottish brothers who live under there, in some ways, their mother’s technical rule…either marry before your younger sister or never get the money to keep their impoverished holdings in Scotland afloat.

After reading and enjoying the first book in this series, there was no way I was missing this one.

I loved Miranda and Aden. She’s sharp-tongued and loyal. He’s elusive and charming when he needs to be. Together they’re unlikely partners and it’s so much fun reading them slowly move from acquaintances to something like friends to love. Of course it’s delightful to see Aden’s brothers and Francesca.

Plot wise, it was good. There aren’t as many moving pieces as I expected, but it’s quite layered.

Aden MacTaggert is the middle MacTaggert son forced to travel to England to find an English bride. He immediately finds the bride he wants in Miranda Harris. Miranda, however, is embroiled in a plot not of her own making. She agrees to assist Aden fit in better with polite society if he helps her out of her dilemma.

I was initially going to rate this title lower but changed my mind because I enjoyed so many things about it and only really had one major problem.

I liked both Aden and Miranda.

In keeping with my 2020 resolution to discover more historical romances I requested this new-to-me author because this cover was hot!

An enemies to lovers romance between a gambling Highlander hell-bent on avoiding marriage to a wilting English miss, and a woman who isn't at all intimidated by his roguish demeanor. It took me a little while to get into this one, but once the plot got rolling (Miranda's hand in marriage has been traded to forgive a gambling debt) I was invested! Miranda is forced

I really liked it. It was a lovely, quick read. I can always count on Ms. Enoch to deliver a good, sweet historical romance. I could not put this down (even if it doesn't seem so based on how long I was reading it), but that's not to say there aren't some elements of the story that could have been better.
I had some difficulty getting into it the first 3 chapters or so but later the story picked up and I got engrossed. It was little slow to get started and much too quick to wrap up. It kept me

I haven't read a Suzanne Enoch story in a long time. The good news is that her writing is still top-notch! Scot under the Covers was charming, heart-warming and just plain fun. Take one clever Highlander and mix him with a conventional Sassenach with a secret desire to rebel and you have a terrific mix. Both families added a lot to the mix, plus one very slimy villain. This book was everything I love about historical romance. A must-read.

When her brother finds himself up to his neck in crippling debt from gambling, Miss Miranda Harris finds herself being forced into marriage with the wily retired military Captain who has ruined her brother. As loathsome as she finds him, Miranda knows she must seek help from Aden McTaggert, the wild Highlander who is the brother of her future sister-in-law.

Aden knows nothing about English high society but he's familiar with women and gaming. In order to keep his inheritance and the money that

Gotta love those wild wicked Highlanders:) I thoroughly enjoyed this story and loved everything about it! This is Aden and Miranda's story and ooooh, what a story it is!!

Aden is my type of hero....not only is he a tall and gorgeous Highlander, he prefers to wear a kilt, has a wicked sense of humour and doesn't care what anyone thinks of him. He's also a gambler (an honest one!) and when he's asked to help solve a situation that involves a dastardly villain who ruins lives of other gamblers, he

Scot Under the Covers turned out to be a really fun read! It started with the ridiculous boot throwing battle between the older MacTaggert brothers, a mention of Rory, the oddly dressed, stuffed stag, and Brogan, Aden’s unexpected rescue dog. The plot thickened with the lost wager from a brainless twit. But that brought out the battle of wits between Aden and Miranda, which kept me entertained from the get-go. Aden’s dry sense of humor also had me in stitches more times than I care

I have not read the first Wild Wicked Highlanders story, however this did not affect my reading or enjoyment of Scot Under The Covers

I have been reading more historical romance the past couple of years, and a historical romance with a sexy highlander - let me at it

This was a sexy, suspenseful romp through quagmire of love and romance in historical England (in my mind it was set in the Regency era, but I don't know if that is when it was set).

Aden MacTaggert and his two brothers are in London only because of an agreement between their English mother and Scottish father. The agreement requires the three of them to find English brides before their younger sister can be married. And since Eloise has found her groom, it is time for the brothers to find their brides. Aden is reluctantly playing the game until he meets Miranda Harris, Eloise’s future sister-in-law. Miranda’s brother, Matthew (the one engaged to Eloise), has an unfortunate ...more

Aden's mom had left their father but before she left she made him sign an agreement that her three boys had to marry before their youngest sister and they had to be English. So here they were. The English always brought an absurd amount of luggage, so they brought Rory, a red deer, as part of a huge amount of luggage. Both Aden and Coll had taken off their shoes to settle a bet. So there they were walking around in Mayfair with a bucket in the street, pitching their shoes at the bucket and being ...more

Mathew (the brother) is engaged to Aden's sister and so Miranda goes to him for advice. She loathes gamblers.

This is my first Suzanne Enoch and I am in love!! The McTaggert brothers have stolen my heart and I can't wait to read every book in this series. I did not read book one, It's Getting Scot in Here, but it's getting pushed to the top of my TBR. Scot Under the Covers stands alone well but if you can read book one first, do it. You don't want to miss any of these brothers.

This novel was a delightful read! A Highlander is highlander even when they are not in Scotland and an English lady is still one. However, when their paths collide, each can learn a bit from the other and appearances are not always what they seem. Aden MacTaggert enjoys wagering and women, but needs to find an English bride to satisfy the conditions his mother had his father sign in order to keep the Scotland estate funded. Miranda Harris is society's darling, knows everyone and is charming. ...more

This was a most enjoyable historical romance! Although it is the second in a series, I had no problem reading it as a stand-alone. I enjoyed these characters so much that I am greatly looking forward to reading more in this series. I am really looking forward to the upcoming third book.

If you like Highlanders, aka men in kilts, you must read this book! Add an extra exclamation point if your jam is brave, bold, close-knit, endearing families. Truly, both Aden and Miranda are excellent

This was such an entertaining read with very engaging characters. The MacTaggert brothers, Coll, Aden and Niall were all larger than life highlanders. This story mainly concerns the middle brother, Aden, although all feature in some way. Aden, is shrewd, insightful and very intelligent, he also likes to shock. He likes to keep his own council. His first meeting with Miranda Harris was eventful and that there relationship thereafter continued to be complicated. Miranda has a major problem and ...more

I adored the whole story. I loved both main characters from the very beginning.

Miranda Harris was sassy, very intelligent and by sociaty recognized which brought her life in a dangerous situation of debt. Although not on her behalf, she needed to become free again.

Aden McTaggert was somewhat rough highlander with heart in the right place and brilliant mind.

When those two became partners to ploy against Captain Vale and to free Miranda of her situation, they completed one another like match made
