✱✱Book Review✱✱ Scot Under the Covers by Suzanne Enoch

Scot Under the Covers 
The Wild Wicked Highlanders
by Suzanne Enoch

The second in the seductive new Scottish historical romance Wild Wicked Highlanders series from New York Times bestselling author Suzanne Enoch!
In Scot Under the Covers, a resourceful English lady and a hot-blooded Highlander join forces to trick a scoundrel, and every rule will be broken!
Miranda Harris is known for her charm, wit, and ability to solve any problem she encounters. But when her brother lands neck-deep in gambling debt to a crafty villain and Miranda is subsequently blackmailed into marrying him, she must enlist the help of the devil himself to save the family honor—and herself.
“It’s time to fall in love with Suzanne Enoch.” — Lisa Kleypas
Devilishly handsome Highlander Aden MacTaggert knows next to nothing about the ways of the ton, but he most certainly knows his way around gaming halls and womens’ hearts. Still, Aden is not sure how he’ll manage to find a Sassenach bride in time to save his family’s inheritance. When his almost sister-in-law Miranda comes to him for assistance, he proposes a partnership: She will help him navigate London society and he’ll teach her everything about wagering…and winning back her freedom. The beautiful, clever lass intrigues Aden—but is she playing her own game, or are the sparks between them real? He is accustomed to risking his pocket. But betting on Miranda’s love is a game he can’t afford to lose. . .

Momma Says: 3 stars⭐⭐⭐

Historical romances are a bit of a hit or miss for me, and Scot Under the Covers lands somewhere in the middle. The characters are likable enough, at least our hero and heroine. There were some things about the characters' actions that rubbed me the wrong way, some of it falling in with the time period and some not, but they were likable enough. The romance felt a little off to me. It wasn't instalove, but it didn't move organically either. They kind of went back and forth on why they should or shouldn't be together, which wouldn't be a big deal except the result was that the story felt a little choppy to me at times. This is the second book in a series, but it does work as a standalone. In the end, this one had its moments, so it was worth the read.
