Coll MacTaggert, Viscount Glendarril, is a big, brawny Highlander who doesn’t like being told what to do—not even by his exasperated English mother who is determined to see her eldest son wedded and bedded. However, when he comes to the rescue of an irresistibly beautiful woman, Coll discovers tha

I've been really enjoying the Wild Wicked Highlanders series by Suzanne Enoch (and those book titles always make me smile), but while I liked Hit Me With Your Best Scot, it wasn't my favorite in the series.

I think my biggest issue with this book was the pacing. It took me a little over a week to read, which is unusual for me, and I think the problem was that the plot seemed to drag on. I feel like the author had to draw things out as much as possible and didn't have quite enough material to do

I am not a big fan of SE’s highlander series. I find the brothers unappealing, and Coll is the worst. Although he says he isn’t, he comes off exactly as someone describes him “a man who walks with his hands”.

Big and brawny is not my cup of tea. One who thinks all Britts are fops, with nothing to back up the theory just makes my eyes roll. He is the worst highlander in London cliché.

How great is this title anyway? The author really hit the mark with this book and series as a whole. I just love reading this author and she is quickly becoming a go-to favorite of mine!

Hit Me With Your Best Scot is wonderfully unique and just a refreshing, fun story. The characters are developed with deeply crafted detail and are so likable you really want the story to just keep going and going. Even though we have an awesome outcome, I want to r

Hit Me With Your Best Scot is the third book in the Wild Wicked Highlanders series.  I was a little worried that Cole MacTaggerts' book wouldn’t be as enjoyable as the other two brothers, as he seemed twice as stubborn and has had a few instances in the other books where he hasn’t come off well.  But those Sc
What an action filled read! This had so much going on from the very beginning. There were family issues, mysteries inside mysteries, and the romance between the hero and heroine. The divide that was automatically between Coll and Persephone made the development of their relationship much more angsty than I anticipated.

I loved Coll and his big growly ways. He did attempt to do what was requested of him but through it all he couldn’t stop thinking about Persephone. That made him even more amazing

A fitting conclusion to Highlanders series!

What a wild ride it’s been and in this third book in the series Coll MacTaggert, Viscount Glendarril, lives up to the MacTaggert tradition.
This is the man who pursued a villain down Grosvenor Square clad in nothing but his boots and carrying a large sword, to the secretly scandalized delight of the ton.
It stands to reason any answer to his mother’s demands for an English bride would be guaranteed to fly in her face. Remember the MacTaggert men had to f

I’m glad I persevered…

I have to admit that I’m not a huge fan of changing the rules. I started reading Hit Me With Your Best Scot hesitantly, knowing that an actress and a lord together would be changing the rules. I was also hesitant that the author would come up with a suitable excuse to pardon this faux pas. But, do you know what made my eye twitch the most? The actress is ‘EXPERIENCED’. The shock… The horror! Don’t get your knickers in a knot, I’m not being all double standard…ish. It’s just

I received an eARC at no cost from the author/publisher, and I am leaving a voluntary and honest review. Thank you.

This is the last book of the Wild Wicked Highlanders series, and it brings us the story of the oldest MacTaggert brother, Coll.

Coll is a bit, like his sister Eloise likes to call him, an angry mountain. But, as most romance heroes, he has a soft heart, and is a very unselfish person.

I’m a sucker for a Scottish Highlander romance, but this was a little different since it took place in London instead of Scotland. Three brothers are tasked with marrying English women or lose their English mother’s funding of their home, Aldriss Park. Coll’s two younger brothers have fulfilled their part of the bargain and fortunately for them fell in love (books one and two of the series) in the process. But Coll can’t find a woman and doesn’t want to. Bending to his mother’s will after she le ...more

If you’re unfamiliar with Suzanne Enoch’s writing, I find that her Highlander Romance are much more rougher than her Regency Romances. I guess that’s to be expected since we’re talking about Highlanders here.

But I found that this book was a little slow for me. I wasn’t fully engaged in Coll’s character and therefore, it took me a while to get through this book. Some parts were slow and other times I wished that there was more going on. It’s definitely not a bad book, but perhaps I was just e

Hit Me With Your Best Scot is a delightful read. I had my reservations going into the eldest MacTaggert’s story because Coll was a lot to handle in his brothers’ books, but Suzanne Enoch showed him to be a wonderful hero without changing him into someone else. Coll is blunt, brash, and brawny, his keen mind hidden beneath the exterior he uses to fool people who don’t want to look deeper. He has no patience for the rules of society and even less for hi

I was completely charmed by the MacTaggert brothers in Scot Under the Covers, the second book in Suzanne Enoch’s Wild Wicked Highlanders series, and even more so in Coll and Persephone’s story, Hit Me With Your Best Scot. Forced to find an English bride or lose the financial backing of his wealthy mother, Coll is the last of the single MacTaggert brothers, and time is running out. As the eldest son and heir, he feels a responsibility, to the people who work the MacTaggert land in Scotla

Coll needs a wife, but it is hard. English lasses faint at the sight of him, and if they do stay he is most likely to say something to cause offense. And he have to marry because else his mother will hold back the money he needs to keep his estate running.

In comes Persephone Jones, well known actress, and certainly not the English Lady Coll's mother wants him to marry. But they run across each other, sparks fly, and some things you can't hide from.

I almost paused on finishing this one, but kept going because I love historical romance. I haven’t read too many where the heroine “knows what she’s doing” ye ken what I’m saying. Call me old fashioned, but in the historical roms that I read I love my heroes large and in charge.😆 Then I remembered my all time fave heroine, Claire Fraser, was the one that popped Jamie Fraser’s cherry so I thought okay, I’ll give it a go.

To truly understand Coll’s total frustration, you should read at least the first book in the series, It's Getting Scot in Here.

Coll MacTaggert is a Scotsman not to be messed with. He has a fiery temper and the physique to follow through and he's almost always looking for a fight. His titled English mother wants to see him married as soon as possible.

He meets Persephone, famous actress and all around man killer, and decides that SHE is the woman he wants to wed. But she has promised never to marry, and certainly never to a hot headed Scot. When Coll finds out Persephobe's secret he determines to save her from someone se

Coll, Viscount Glendarril was a larger than life character. At first it seemed as though he let his physical appearance do the talking but he was actually a very intelligent man. Persephone Jones was an intelligent woman, who was a superb actress. She was also valued her independence. They did have a very strong attraction but Coll’s family wouldn’t want him to marry an actress. Coll did need to marry to save his tenants.

I love love loved Persephone. She's smart and sassy and I loved that she was open when needed to be. Coll has been a gruff character throughout the series and this was no exception.

I loved Coll & Persephone’s story. It’s witty and funny and I have to say I really liked that Persephone wasn’t the usual female heroine. She certainly gave as good as she got. Grumpy Coll wasn’t sure what hit him! This was my first read from this author and I will definitely be looking for more.

I'm really sad I missed the first two books cause I'm sure they were as great at this one. And I won't be buying the ebook when it's priced at $7.99

Coll wasn't looking for a wife at the theater but he found Persephone. She wasn't looking for anything either. True love sneaks up on both of them while a bad guy attempts to kill her. Loved her secret. I just wanted an epilogue several years in the future to look in on all the siblings.

What a great story! Coll definitely lived up to my expectations from the beginning of this series. And Persephone was perfect for him. I really hope we get a second chance romance book for Lord and Lady Aldriss.
