March 2021 #TBRChallenge Review! SCOT UNDER THE COVERS by Suzanne Enoch (Wild Wicked Highlanders #3)

I finished it! <3 If you missed my long, drawn-out post explaining the challenge and this book’s place in it, you can read it here.

Scot Under the Covers cover

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. . .

My favorite of the series!

And okay, I read them out of order– It’s Getting Scot in Here in 2019 and Hit Me With Your Best Scot a few weeks ago. I had the ARC of this one in my ereader, and I fully intended to read it before it came out, but…2020.

But that’s not a problem, because that made Scot Under the Covers ideal for the 2021 #TBRChallenge!

I loved Aden and Miranda’s story. From reading Coll’s book, I already knew that he was going to have to help her get out of a bad situation (a running theme in this series) and that it somehow involved Eloise’s fiance (and Miranda’s brother) as well. But, of course, I needed details. I needed to see them fall in love! Watch them defeat the bad guy! And see why Coll ran naked down the street!

(Guys, I legit completely forgot that at some point Coll was going to run down the street naked after someone–even after they mentioned it a gazillion times in book 3–until it happened here. I might have burst out laughing. Perhaps while at work. I will neither deny nor confirm.)

I have to say that after reading this one that the MacTaggerts are my new favorite (fictional? Maybe? It depends whether or not my brother is still reading my reviews…) siblings, I have even more respect for their mother (she really stepped up here!), and I still think Eloise could do a thousand times better than Matthew. Please tell me she’s going to get her own book? Please? I promise to try really hard to read it closer to its review date if she does… 😉

Rating: 4 1/2 stars / A
