Wicked intrigue unfolds as an unlikely marriage leads to a path of risky desire in the lush, green Scottish Highlands.
Born into riches and groomed in English luxury, Margot Armstrong didn't belong in a Scottish chieftain's devil-may-care world. Three years ago she fled their marriage of convenience and hasn't looked back—except to relive the moments spent in wild, rugged Arran McKenzie's passionate embrace. But as their respective countries' fragile unity threatens to unravel, Margot must return to her husband to uncover his role in the treachery before her family can be accused of it.
Red-haired, green-eyed Margot was Arran's beautiful bride. Her loss has haunted him, but her return threatens everything he has gained. As the Highland mists carry whispers of an English plot to seize McKenzie territory, he must outmaneuver her in games of espionage…and seduction. But even as their secrets tangle together, there's nothing to prevent love from capturing them both and leading them straight into danger.
I really enjoyed Wild Wicked Scot– I liked the way the main character grew and the tension created by her existence as a dependent female, a pawn in men’s games. She starts off so naive and, like many women of the time, with no clue about what’s really going on around her. But she’s not happy about being a pawn to be traded and bargained. She just deals with it by throwing a fit basically – but as the story progresses and she has to deal with issues she grows into someone less naive – determined and brave.
I also loved the second chance romance element. Watching the couple discover the numerous mistakes they made and try to find a place to start anew, while uncertain if they can trust the other.
I liked the narration by Derek Perkins – the female voices could get a little squeaky as they often do with male narrators. I’d say a B+ narration ad I enjoyed the male voices and even the female ones for the most part.
Berls enjoyed the 2nd chance romance in Wild Wicked Scot. 4/5 stars! #audioreview Click To Tweet
