My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Many of us have these favorite tropes in each genre that we keep returning to, irrespective of the number of books that have been already read. Forced weddings, kidnapped heroines, romance with a captive character are all some of the tropes that I absolutely love in historical romances. The Devil Wears Plaid has the added charm of being set in the Scottish Highlands, my most treasured place in the world.
Teresa Medeiros weaves a delightful and steamy romance in The Devil Wears Plaid. Jamie Sinclair is on a mission to retrieve the one thing in the world that he wants at any cost and if kidnapping the new bride of Hepburn is the only way, then he’s ready to do it. Emmaline is gathering her strength to be sacrificed, ahem, I mean to be wedded to an old goat but of course, the kidnapper is dashing and sexy so there’s no problem in being abducted…LOL!
Jokes aside, the story has a lot of fun moments and a dash of intrigue with the past of Jamie being unraveled in bits and pieces. Emma is resourceful, questioning every single thing that is being thrown at her feet and there’s a gentle and sweet growth in love between Jamie and Emma with desire and passion burning in their hearts.
Now for all those readers who have been reading similar stories over the years, there’s nothing particularly new in the subject but the author does a fairly good job in presenting the past with suspense and a surprising twist at the end.
Go for it for some sexy highlander drooling 😉 😉 😉
Passion sparks in USA Today and New York Times bestselling author Teresa Medeiros’s irresistibly tempting new romance after a sexy
Highlander kidnaps his rival’s spirited English bride Emmaline Marlowe is about to wed the extremely powerful laird of the Hepburn clan to save her father from debtor’s prison when ruffian Jamie Sinclair bursts into the abbey on a magnificent black horse and abducts her in one strong swoop. Though he is Hepburn’s sworn enemy, Emma’s mysterious captor is everything her bridegroom is not—handsome, virile, dangerous . . . and a perilous temptation for her yearning heart.
Jamie expects Emma to be some milksop English miss, not a fiery, defiant beauty whose irresistible charms will tempt him at every turn. But he cannot allow either one of them to forget he is her enemy and she his pawn in the deadly Highland feud between the clans. So why does he still want her so badly for himself? Stealing his enemy’s bride was simple, but can he claim her innocence without losing his heart?
