How does a woman tell her betrothed that she murdered her first husband?
Shipwrecked in the Scottish Highlands, American heiress Elise Kingston quietly plans revenge for the deaths of her daughter and the brother who sacrificed his life to save her.
When Marcus MacGregor, Marquess of Ashlund, returns to his Highland home to discover a stunning American woman has been taken in by his clan, his attraction is instant and he resolves to make her his–no matter what secret she’s keeping.
Elise is shocked by her need for Marcus and, too late, discovers that her feelings make him a target of her enemy–a man powerful enough to destroy even a Scottish nobleman.
(Blurb from Goodreads)
This was my first Tarah Scott read, and it was amazing. Honestly, it’s the best historical romance I’ve read since Outlander and The Tea Rose. I had no problem connecting to the characters, and easily fell into the story.
Elise is my favorite kind of heroine; she has her mind set on something and does not give up easily. She has plans for revenge for the death of her daughter and brother, but Marcus has no idea and makes it incredibly difficult for her to leave his land. But yet, she still tries – repeatedly.
Also, Elise is definitely not a damsel in distress; another reason I liked this book. She was perfectly capable of taking care of herself.
The lead up with the romance, and the chemistry between Marcus and Elise made me stay up way too late to read chapter after chapter. And the romance between them gave me all the feels.
If you are a historical romance fan, I strongly suggest one-clicking My Highland Love by Tarah Scott. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series!
