Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Banks’s first Montgomerys and Armstrongs novel brings romance to 13th-century Scotland. King Alexander II decrees a marriage between the two families, hoping to end their feud. Graeme Montgomery is disappointed that his king has ordered him to wed Eveline Armstrong, the daughter of his enemy. Though Graeme has never meet Eveline, he has heard rumors that she is “daft” and will be unable to bear him heirs. Despite discovering that she cannot speak, Graeme is impressed by his new wife’s innate intelligence and perseverance regardless of the disdain displayed by members of his clan. While the love story between the resolute yet misunderstood woman and the fierce warrior is enticing, Eveline’s altruistic nature sometimes seems too good to be true. However, the mystery behind her muteness and the subplots threatening her safety add intrigue to this satisfying, evenly paced historical. Agent: Kimberly Whalen, Trident Media Group. (Oct.)

    Amazingly crafted

    ABOUT THE BOOK:
    This sinfully sweet new romance from Maya Banks features a remarkable woman whose rare gift teaches a gruff Scottish warrior how to listen with his heart.

    Eveline Armstrong is fiercely loved and protected by her powerful clan, but considered "touched" to outsiders. Beautiful, fey, with a level, intent gaze, she doesn't speak. No one, not even her family, knows that she cannot hear. Eveline taught herself to read lips and allows the outside world to view her as daft, content to stay with her family. But when an arranged marriage with a rival clan makes Graeme Montgomery her husband, she accepts her duty—unprepared for the delights to come. Graeme is a rugged warrior with a voice so deep and powerful she can hear it, and hands and kisses so tender and skilled he awakens her deepest passions.

    Graeme is intrigued by his new bride, whose silent lips are ripe with temptation, whose bright, intelligent eyes can see into his soul. As intimacy deepens, he learns her secret. But when clan rivalries and dark deeds threaten the wife he has only begun to cherish, the Scottish warrior will move heaven and earth to save the woman who has awakened his heart to the beautiful song of a rare and magical love.

    REVIEW: Oh my, Ms. Banks has woven an extremely touching story. The story is compelling and draws you in every step of the way.

    While the book started off slow, a bit of background tossed at you, by a third of the book I couldn’t put it down. It is a story that you will want to take in the shower with you, one that you’ll sneak a peek at during red lights, and one that will make your night of rest, alive.

    Graeme is an amazingly built character, a man that many should strive to be like. Eveline is such a sweet and strong soul that with each passing scene, you feel your heart growing along with hers.

    The chemistry and conflict between these two was nicely played out and the plot of the story was one that keeps you intrigued. I loved watching it all play out and in the end, adored the happily ever after.

    If you are looking for a fantastically written historical romance that will give you a bit of a thrill, pick this one up today. Five out of five stars for a job well done.

    Astounding Love Story Never Seduce a Scott is what Scottish Hist

    Astounding Love Story
    Never Seduce a Scott is what Scottish Historical Romance genre is all about. It is an astounding love story that had me in tears. But be forewarned, this book will give you a book hangover and your next book will for sure to put you in a book slump.

    The Armstrongs and the Montgomerys are feuding clans that go back centuries and their hate towards each other are ingrained from childhood. As a last resort to end this quarrel, King Alexander II decides to marry them off. Both clans are furious but a forced alliance was made through Graeme and Eveline’s marriage.

    Maya Banks did a wonderful job with Graeme as the hero, a total Scottish alpha male. He is every bit romantic, as he is a warrior. Everyone respected him, all the women wanted him and he is well endowed!!! He is the exact alpha I love to read about.

    Eveline, is known to be “daft” but yet, forced into a marriage without knowing her groom, live in his household, deal with his clan who hates her, not to mention she has a disability but somehow survived it all. She stood tall, proud and made the worse situation to a better one without help or a pity party. I cheered for her right from the start and reading about her was so uplifting. Let me tell you this chick rocked.
    Maya Banks did well to put these two very strong personalities together without clashing to a disaster. It was so easy to fall for them both. The Romance was just epic!!!

    Never Seduce a Scot is without a doubt. one of my top reads of the year!

    Great read

    Loved the story and the writting, but there may have been some problems with the editing or quality of this nook book. It skiped entire pages and had to manually go to the page to continue with the read. I will try another book to make sure it was not my nook that was the problem.

    A beautiful love story

    Maya Banks has done it again! “Never Seduce a Scot” kicks off her Montgomerys and Armstrongs Scottish historical trilogy with a very powerful story. The story takes place in the 1200‘s with the King wanting his two most powerful allies and clans in the realm to end their feud. To accomplish this he orders the chief of clan Montogomery to marry the daughter of the chief of clan Armstrong. There are two problems with this, the clans have been at war and Eveline is supposedly “touched”. Graeme, chief of the Montgomerys, knows he must obey the king and the story begins with many conflicts. Eveline and Graeme's story, will warm your heart, bring tears to your eyes and give you hope. If you are a Maya Banks fan you know she loves her tortured characters and Eveline is one them. I think one of the things I loved about Eveline who wasn’t “touched” but deaf, was that you felt her pain and frustration with her hearing loss but she found a way to deal with it making what some would call a negative a positive thing. Maya dealt with her situation with such compassion and strength. At the end of the book Maya explains she based Evelines hearing loss on her husbands own hearing condition. Her personal experience comes through and this is such a wonderful facet of the character and adds richness to the story. One of the many strengths of Maya Banks books is the complexity and depth of her characters. You feel as if you know them in this book as with her others. They bring tears to your eyes and take your breath away. No matter what the genre, Maya is consistent in the sensitivity of her characters and they add a richness to her stories that can’t be ignored. Maya’s stories are unique and if you love reading a book that will take you away then Maya Banks is the author for you. This book is a wonderful addition to her list of successes.

    Good

    This was a good book. I liked the struggles that both families had to deal with. It made the plot and storline more interesting. I do however fiind fault with the title. Where was the seduction?? There were some risky/steamy live scenes though. Other than that, it was a good read. I look forward to reading others in this series.

    Highly Recommended!

    Previously, I enjoyed Maya Banks KGI Series and her Highland Series. I was looking forward to this read since I read a synopsis about it at the beginning of the summer, I was not disappointed. Banks gave more depth to each character in "Never Seduce a Scot." You enjoyed both the hero and heroine as individuals. Then Banks built the relationship and established a depth in the characters you felt connected to those individuals and their clans.

    In addition, this book is a wonderful jumpstart to her new series. There were so many characters introduced that you enjoy and wonder when their story will be written next. The next one is already being anticipated.

    Definitely check this one out!

    Never Seduce a Scot is a wonderfully written, emotion inspiring

    Never Seduce a Scot is a wonderfully written, emotion inspiring book. The story is about two feuding families ordered by the king to have the laird of one marry the daughter of the other. This book is filled with love, treachery, hatred and misunderstanding. I couldn't put it down.

    Wow.. a total must read

    I was hesitant to see how the story would be written with her difficulties because it could have ended up a mess, but the author created a wonderful story with a strong but gentle female character and a man who treats her with respect. Yes there are conflicts but it enhances the story so well. Amazing story, now one of my favorites.

    OMG! This book was totally amazing, exciting and yummy! I LOVE historical romance and this one didn't let me down. I stayed up until 3:30 am and I had to get up for work at 7:30 am. Was it worth only getting 4 hours sleep? YES!!! I swear, I couldn't put it down! I'm ready to start reading Highlander Most Wanted (tonight) and I'm glad to have read that the third book, Highland Ever After, will be available spring/summer 2015 (posted by author on goodreads). I can't wait!

    I loved it! the use of the Gallic words, the description of the battles and the development of the feeling of the two main characters is what makes Maya Bank's books are wonderful.

    Great start to a series

    This is a great start to another Highlander series. Maya is fantastic at plotting a story line that grabs you from the first chapter and makes it so you can't put the book down. This book was exactly that situation. I fell in love with the characters. I was taken by surprise at the outcome. I bought the first and 2nd books together and now I have to wait for the 3rd to be released. Waiting is the only bad part of this story.
