Overview

My One True Highlander (No Ordinary Hero Series #2) by Suzanne Enoch

IS ALL FAIR IN LOVE AND WAR?

Scotland, 1812—Rugged Highlander Graeme’s loyalty to his clan means that their enemies are his own—even when that includes his neighbor, the Duke of Lattimer. It’s a fight he doesn’t relish, but when Graeme’s reckless younger brothers foolishly kidnap Lattimer’s younger sister, all bets are off…

Lady Marjorie Forrester may be aligned with the enemy, but capturing her puts Graeme squarely in the middle of a war. If he turns Marjorie over to his clan chief, she could be killed. If he lets her go, his brothers could face prison. In addition, the woman can’t stop trying to civilize the lot of them! What’s a Highlander to do, then, but keep the stubborn lass close…and explore the unexpected passion that develops between them? But how can Graeme protect Marjorie and his brothers when both Lattimer and his own clan are on the warpath—and will do whatever it takes to tear these two star-crossed lovers apart, in My One True Highlander, the next No Ordinary Hero Scottish romance from New York Times bestselling author Suzanne Enoch.

Rugged highlander Graeme has one thing on his mind—take a stand against the horrible Englishman Lattimer and he will be rewarded with enough money to be set for life. But when his reckless younger brothers take it one step too far and kidnaps a young woman on her way to see Lattimer, Graeme has to intervene. Unfortunately, trying to protect his brother keeps leading to more and more trouble. This was a very cute story. There were times when I wanted to yell at Graeme for his assumptions about Marjorie, but I felt a little silly when I was yelling at my tablet and it didn’t change his misconceptions:) The side characters were so engrained into the story that they were just as interesting to follow. I can’t wait to read another book by Suzanne Enoch! I really loved it and highly recommend it. **I voluntarily read and reviewed this book

Graeme is a neighbor to the Duke of Lattimer and when the Duke of Duncraige comes to him and tells him he needs to eliminate the threat of Lattimer he refuses to do anything. However, his younger brothers decide that something needs to be done and when they stumble upon Lattimer's sister in a near by village they take matters into their own hands and kidnap her. Graeme has no idea what to do with her and he is furious with his brothers because they do not understand the situation they have put him into. Marjorie only wishes to surprise her brother and be there for his wedding.  She never expects to be kidnaped or that the man who holds her fate in his hands to be a handsome highlander bent on protecting his three brothers and his people for the Duke of Duncraige. The plot concept was good, but not as great as Hero in the Highlands. The characters are strong and entertaining but they don’t stand out like Gabriel and Fiona. The conflict is similar in this one as in book one. I did enjoyed it and I liked their story. It was an easy read and not dull. The back and forth between the two main characters were fun to watch but I definitely think Gabriel and Fiona were better overall.

LOVED this story!! Between the bantering that Graeme and Marjorie engaged in to the antics of Graeme's brothers, I was highly entertained from beginning to end! I loved that Marjorie was not your typical Englishwoman out of her element in the Highlands of Scotland. Having not grown up with money, she was not the pampered miss that Graeme was expecting when he learned her identity. Graeme was also not your typical lord since there was not enough money in the coffers for him to do anything but to help out with the estate work himself. This is definitely a story that you need to pick up and read!!

What can I say; this is an amusing full of heat captivating read much like book one to this series. Author Suzanne Enoch really knows how to write a book that knocks ones socks off. In this second book to the No Ordinary Hero series I feel in love with both the hero, Graeme and the heroine, Marjorie as well as Connell, Graeme's youngest brother. Graeme is just a messy character but of course this is to be understood since he is a laird and raising his three wild brothers. The reader will thoroughly enjoy his interactions with his brothers and their shenanigans. Marjorie warms my heart with her trying so hard to be accepted in proper society and it is heart wrenching to read through the pages of what happens to her and her reactions. Despite everything she is not a woman to give up thus she gives Graeme a mighty battle. I love when a man falls like a tree for a feisty woman. The reader will enjoy reading the interaction between these two. The brothers who would be considered secondary characters are in my opinion right up there with Graeme and Marjorie for interest and had me laughing many times as well as feeling pain for what they were going through since their parents' death. Because this deals with real life situations and finding love one deserves I give it 5 STARS

Received an ARC for my fair review for netgalley. I love her books, and I thoroughly enjoyed this one also. Marjorie has just been made a "lady" because one of her relatives past away giving the dukeship to her brother Gabriel, a soldier. She thinks that is what she wants, and hires a companion to help her, but she gets snubbed constantly and is not happy. She decides to go to Scotland for her brothers wedding. She ends up getting kidnapped by Graems brothers, who want to help him with the Maxwell and they hope this will make them accepted. Graem can not believe his brothers did this, he understands that they just wanted to help, but they actually brought more problems to his door. Graem meet Marjorie, and advises her he can not let her go, that he was going to marry her, which ofcourse she objects to. Their banter was funny, ofcourse as they spend time together, they fall in love, and she finds herself accepted, and at home with his family and clan.

After being dismissed by the Ton, Lady Marjorie decides to visit her brother, the new Duke of Lattimer, in Scotland. Unfortunately, she's kidnapped en route. by the brothers of a laird who think she'll be a bargaining chip to help their clan. Graeme, a poor viscount, knows he could use her or force her into marriage, but he won't; regardless, he must keep her safe. Their time together changes from her imprisonment to a "governess" for his brother as their desire for each other grows. Kidnapped a second time, Graeme saves her. She'll only marry for love and he's never had time for love--will each give in a little before it's too late? Fantastic story set in the wilds of the Highlands. I highly recommend. **I received a copy of the story on NetGalley**

This is a historical highland escapade with clan disputes, daring younger brothers and danger as well as romance. Following her brother unexpectedly becoming the Duke of Lattimer, Lady Marjorie Forrester is still coming to terms with her new station in life and members of the ton seem reluctant to accept her newly elevated status. Her brother has moved to his new estate in the Highlands and, when Marjorie learns that he is planning to marry, she decides to surprise him by leaving London to visit him and meet his betrothed. She sets out with her companion, Mrs Giswell, and a couple of drivers Unfortunately she was unaware of the clan wars in the area and is kidnapped en route. Her captors turn out to be the younger brothers of the laird of the area and their antics leave him with a serious dilemma. Should he send her on to her brother who owns the neighbouring land or to his Chieftain who is in dispute with her brother. He knows that his brothers will be in trouble if her brother learns of their actions but that he will be in danger if his Chieftain learns he had her captive and didn’t hand her over to him - he doesn’t want to get stuck in the middle of the clan feud. He’s stuck between a rock and a hard place - even more so when he’s attracted to this feisty lass! The story has great characters, from the so practical yet ingenious Marjorie, to her companion, the very proper ’determined to be seen to follow the rules’ Mrs Giswell, and onto the hardworking Graeme and his brothers. There’s intrigue, confrontation, mischief, danger and the beautiful Highland setting in this delightful novel which is a lovely story to escape into for anyone who enjoys their Regency romantic suspense with a distinctly Scottish flavour. I requested and received a copy of this story via NetGalley and this is my honest review after reading it.

My One True Highlander by Suzanne Enoch No Ordinary Hero #2 Highland abduction has never been so much fun! When Lady Marjorie Forrester is kidnapped by three brothers and taken home as booty for their older brother Graeme to negotiate with all of their lives will be changed forever…and for the better. The steps to the dance of romance Graeme and Marjorie are caught up in are a delight to read. There are villains to thwart, animals to save, a few romances in the air and a reuniting of Marjorie with her brother. Graeme doesn’t refer to Marjorie as a lioness without reason and the two of them together are formidable in more than one way. I smiled and cared and enjoyed and really was not ready for the story to end! Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for the ARC – This is my honest review. 5 Stars

What I love most about a Enoch novel, is the ease in which I fall. It's so effortless. One line. One turn of the page and I'm at the edge slowly falling and embracing it with open arms. It's not something every author can achieve. But it's something that I have found in every single one of her books. He plots thrill, leaving you breathless and your heart racing. Her characters leaving you sighing and desperately, hopelessly falling in love. Your heart just aches from being so full of all those amazing emotions. And when she writes about dashing Highlanders who think the last thing they deserve is love. Well, she steals my heart all over again, because there's nothing more that I love than a dashing fierce Highlander, whose love knows no bounds. And with My One True Highlander, well let's say that Graeme, Viscount Maxton, is everything I could wish for in a swoony Highlander and more. He doesna wish for love, and it's the last thing he expected to find in a lass so English you could smell the tea in her blood, but once he falls he doesna ever want to turn back. Marjorie and Graeme's story is rife with mystery and mayhem. It's a love that will battle all to survive. I loved every page, every word. And when I finished, the only thing I wanted to do was read it all over again. If your a historical romance lover then Suzanne Enoch is a must read author.

This was an absolute treasure to read. Suzanne Enoch swept me away to another time and place with her detailed descriptive narrative and before I knew it, the words faded away and I was absorbed in it. Extremely well written and crafted, a great story with a really good build and pace. Lovable, complex characters that made this story, so entertaining, laugh out loud, funny, and who struggled against their underlying sizzling attraction for one another with constant bickering. But what makes a romance story great for me is that I could watch them fall for each other, feel their protectiveness for one another and even more so feel the anticipation, the want, the desire that they feel for one another. I loved every word! What a gem! Highly Recommended! I voluntarily requested an ARC through the publisher via NetGalley and wrote an honest review.

marjorie forrester never thought she'd be lady marjorie forrester. she was destined to be a paid companion to old ladies, a spinster who lived an unappreciated life, someone who would grow old and live alone. but when her brother unexpectedly inherited a dukedom, everything changed. except that no one in society wanted anything to do with her. they hadn't bothered to look at her when she was a lowly paid companion, but they made a point to not look at her now that she was their social equal. and marjorie wasn't sure which was worse. oh, but she dreamed of being accepted by society. she wanted to make a life for herself. she wanted someone to care about her, she'd spent her whole life being an afterthought. maybe it was finally time that changed. but changing society's mind about her is going to be hard and humiliating and expensive, so when her brother writes and tells her he is getting married, she decides to escape society for a while and surprise him on his estate in the scottish highlands. except her brother forgot to mention that he'd embroiled himself in a war with the clan chief and that maybe it wasn't the right time to be traipsing about the highlands with nothing more than a paid companion and two coachmen in tow. graeme maxton is also in the thick of things. his estate borders the duke of lattimer's who has is essentially at war with their clan chief, the duke of dunncraigh. graeme is a mere viscount but he has no interest in being at war with anyone. he just wants his cotters and his family the chance to live and farm in peace. but when his idiot brothers kidnap lattimer's sister, marjorie, he's not just in the thick of it. he's up to his neck in it and there doesn't appear to be a solution that will not involve all out war with someone more powerful than he is. the only thing going for him is that no one knew marjorie was travelling to lattimer's estate. so no one is actually looking for her, because no one is missing her. when marjorie argues that this is a perfectly good reason to just let her go, graeme refuses. he says it's because he can't trust her, and maybe that is partly the reason. but the other part of it is that something about marjorie appeals to the heathen highlander in him, and now that he has for all intents and purposes kidnapped her, he's not interested in letting her go. while marjorie is at first very put out by the kidnapping thing, and then the possibility of being forced to marry graeme, she soon finds that she's not so much demanding her release, and more that she wants to stay at the lion's den (graeme's ancestral home). for the first time in her life she's part of a household in a way that she's never experienced. she's a friend, a lover, a sister, a part of the family. and how can she give that up? how can she give up graeme, who looks at her as if she were his whole world? no one has ever seen her like he does. and even better, he doesn't expect her to behave a certain way, she doesn't need to be a perfect paragon of society. he likes it when she stands up for what she believes. he sets her free in ways she never thought possible. my one true highlander lets us see how being together allows graeme and marjorie be themselves, their true selves, without worry about what is expected of them or what society might think. being together might be the first thing either of them has ever done just for themselves. and it's oh so enjoyable to read. and while the duke of dunncraigh and sir hamish paulk

This is the second book in the A No Ordinary Hero Novels and I really liked it. The story is fast paced with plenty of drama and suspense and the characters are fun and entertaining. The chemistry between Marjorie and Graeme is steamy. An enjoyable historical read.

My One True Highlander It is such a satisfying experience to read a good book. The kind of book you finish, but continue to think about. I adore Ms. Enoch's style of writing and have read many of her novels. My One True Highlander is another book going into my collection. Lady Marjorie, the heroine, was unique and thoroughly enjoyable to get to know. She was intelligent, courageous and, loving. I also liked how Ms. Enoch did not go into great detail describing what Lady Marjorie was wearing. I do enjoy that style of writing. However, it was refreshing to read about a heroine recognized for her cleverness. Our hero, Graeme, was also exceptional in the way he treated his younger brothers with both patience, and sense of humor. Much to his credit, Graeme made the safety of his young brothers his first priority. He provided a loving environment for his family, one in which the boys were able to grow and flourish. I found it precious the way Graeme allowed his youngest brother to foster orphaned animals. What a touching addition to an already well-written story. Ms. Enoch did a wonderful job writing snappy dialogue, developing all the characters and their relationships with each other, providing a solid story with a nice pace. My One True Highlander has it all, adventure, gentleness, humor, steamy love scenes, and of course, a happy ending. Thank you for allowing me to read and review this novel, I enjoyed it thoroughly.

Lady Marjorie is a social outcast in London. When she finds out her brother is about to be married, she sets out to attend the wedding, whether it's advisable or not. Lo and behold she is kidnapped by a band of ruffians and little does she realize the oldest is all of 16. But they honestly think they're helping their older brother. Graeme is desperately trying to hold on to his lands that has been in his family for generations when his brother kidnap his neighbors sister. And.... he cannot send Lady Marjorie back without his kin getting in trouble. What's a Highlander to do? Suzanne Enoch is one of my favorite authors and she did not disappoint with MY ONE TRUE HIGHLANDER. It has a good storyline and great character interaction, especially between Graeme and his brothers. The romance was a little too fast paced, it seemed they went from 0 to 60 in no time at all. But other than that it was a great read. I received a special copy for my honest opinion.

My One True Highlander is a perfectly paced, humorous, and highly entertaining historical fiction romance. I loved it! Marjorie Forrester was stunned by her sudden status and wealth. Her brother, unexpectedly, became the new Duke of Lattimer, and she a Lady. Marjorie’s brother generously gave her a lavish home in London to enjoy. The transition, however, was proving to be a difficult one. Lady Marjorie hired a companion to help her become accepted by London’s polite society; something she has always wanted. Marjorie was tired of listening to her companion’s lectures on how improper and unsafe it was, to show up at the Duke of Latimer’s castle, unannounced. Lady Marjorie was aware that her companion was only concerned for her welfare, but what kind of surprise would it be, if her brother knew when to expect her? Lady Marjorie was furious when she found herself kidnapped in Scotland and shackled to a bedpost. How dare the despicable Scottish barbarian lock her up without so much as an explanation. Oh, how she wished she would have listened to her companion. However, the longer Lady Marjorie stayed in Graeme Maxton’s home, the more she realized how lucky she had been. There was a war going on between clans and not only was she right smack in the middle of it; she was also the prized pawn. Lady Marjorie shuddered to think of what could have happened if the opposing clan had been the one to kidnap her. I enjoyed this laugh-out-loud historical fiction novel immensely. It’s superbly written with witty dialogue, likable characters, and a captivating plot. I especially loved the hysterical banter between Laird Graeme Maxton and Lady Marjorie Forrester! Thank you, St. Martin’s Press and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.

This is the second book in Suzanne Enoch’s No Ordinary Hero series and I enjoyed it more than the first. It is a wonderful story with lots of humor and romance. The heroine, Marjorie Forrester, is tired of London. When her soldier brother, Gabriel, inherits a dukedom and moves to Scotland he leaves her the mansion in London. But the “ton” doesn’t accept a former companion as a lady and she is lonely. Upon hearing Gabriel is to be wed, she and her companion, Hortensia, head for Scotland. While stopping at an inn near her brother’s property she is kidnapped. Laird Graeme Maxton is raising his 3 younger brothers without much money. They decide to help him by kidnapping Lady Marjorie. The older 2 boys think their clan chief, who hates her brother, will pay well for her. Graeme decides to keep her until he can figure out how to return her without his brothers getting in more trouble. And then the fun starts. Hortensia may also find romance in the Highlands. I especially love 8 year old Connell who rescues orphaned animals. He’ll steal your heart and I hope he gets a HEA when he’s grown. This book is a keeper that I’ll re-read. Honestly, who wouldn’t love a gorgeous man in a kilt caring for his younger brothers? Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for allowing me this ARC.
