It’s #TBRChallenge Wednesday! (Yes, it only took me two+ months to read *all* the directions…yay, me!) I’m not ready to review yet, but I am currently reading my March #TBRChallenge book–and it (mostly!) fits the monthly theme!
March’s theme (the graphic is kind of blurry up there, sorry! It’s not meant to be enlarged too much) is Book by a Favorite Author. To be honest, the author I picked wouldn’t be one who would immediately come to mind when I think about “favorite authors” but I recently read the third book in her newest series for the blog (loved), which reminded me of the first book, which I read by the ocean in Florida (adored–both the book and the trip, back when we used to take trips) and then remembered–gasp!–that I had the second book, but I hadn’t read it yet.
I know, right? Total slacker.
But…favorite author? Can I swing it, reading a single series in two years? So I checked my Goodreads shelf. And it turns out that back in 2011-2012 I read seven of her books, and gave six of them at least four stars. Looking at the titles, I do remember finishing one and then quick finding some more to read ASAP (mostly digital, from the library if memory serves). With the two books I’ve read more recently, plus the one for this challenge? That makes ten of her books (from five different series) I’ll have read and enjoyed considerably–so, a favorite-ish author!
What am I reading? I’m so glad you asked…
…Suznne Enoch’s Scot Under the Covers from her Wild, Wicked Highlanders series. I have to say, reading this one makes me even more sure that she needs to write a fourth book, giving the youngest MacTaggert a better groom than the one she’s been engaged to all series. I wasn’t a huge fan of him in the other books, but in this one his douchebaggery really shines.
The book blurb:
When a resourceful English lady and a hot-blooded Highlander join forces to trick a scoundrel, every rule will be broken!
Miranda Harris is known for her charm, wit, and ability to solve any problem she encounters. But when her brother lands neck-deep in gambling debt to a crafty villain and Miranda is subsequently blackmailed into marrying him, she must enlist the help of the devil himself to save the family honor―and herself.
Devilishly handsome Highlander Aden MacTaggert knows next to nothing about the ways of the ton, but he most certainly knows his way around gaming halls and womens’ hearts. Still, Aden is not sure how he’ll manage to find a Sassenach bride in time to save his family’s inheritance. When his almost sister-in-law Miranda comes to him for assistance, he proposes a partnership: She will help him navigate London society and he’ll teach her everything about wagering…and winning back her freedom. The beautiful, clever lass intrigues Aden―but is she playing her own game, or are the sparks between them real? He is accustomed to risking his pocket. But betting on Miranda’s love is a game he can’t afford to lose. . .
