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.

4 stars Pretty Great

  1. I haven’t read anything from London but I kinda like this sound of this one. May have to give it a listen even if the guy’s female voices get a little squeaky. Ha! I’m actually listening to an historical right now and it’s M/M. Pretty good so far. 🙂 Anyway, I’m glad you enjoyed this one. Hope your new year is off to a great start! {{{BIG HUGS}}}

    • Ohh a historical M/M! What’s the title? That sounds unique and great! Hope you give London a try (I’m happy to share audio books, just let me know!) hope you’re having a great weekend!! {{BIGGEST HUGS}}

  2. I don’t really blame her for throwing a fit! I think I would to given the circumstances! I read Julie London early on when I first started reading romance and always enjoyed them. No idea why I stopped reading her but it sounds like I need to give her another try. I like the sound of the character development.

    • I always wonder what I would be like living with so little “allowed” agency. Maybe I’d throw hissy fits all the time! Yes, you must try her out again 🙂

  3. When you said that she threw a fit, I immediately was like, “Nope! Not for me.” However, I love that she actually grows in this story. She goes from a naive person to someone who is more determined to get what they want and less of a baby about it. Character growth is one of my favorite things in a story. So, I’m really glad to hear that Margot grows throughout the book.

    • I’m with you, I love to see character growth. It’s worth it to start with a character you don’t like so much, of you get to see them grow into someone you love 🙂
