Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Bestseller Medeiros (Some Like It Wild) leaves Regency England for Scotland (exact time and place not specified) in this charming romance. About to speak wedding vows that will bind her to the elderly earl of Hepburn and save her family from poverty, Emmaline Marlowe finds herself abducted by Hepburn's sworn enemy, Jamie Sinclair. Trapped in the Scottish wilds with Jamie and his men, she tries to unravel a tangled mystery around the source of the feud: the unsolved murder of Jamie's parents. Readers will enjoy the appealing, self-reliant heroine and her efforts to avoid her marriage, find the man of her dreams, and take care of her parents and three younger sisters. Quick-paced, clever dialogue lightly sprinkled with Scottish slang moves things along almost too quickly toward a somewhat rushed conclusion.

From Booklist

*Starred Review* Emmaline’s wedding day is rudely interrupted when a strapping Highlander and his men kidnap her and carry her off to the mountains. Despite its lavishness, her wedding isn’t that important to her given that she is sacrificing herself to a wealthy, old, decrepit earl to pay off her father’s gambling debts. Jamie Sinclair is demanding a ransom for her return, but Emmaline’s capture is more about family honor and the centuries-long feud between the Sinclairs and the Hepburns. As Jamie and Emmaline navigate treacherous mountainous slopes, she begins to realize that this particular bad guy is really a good guy, one whose courage and honor instill loyalty in his ragtag band of men. Once safe in his grandfather’s crumbling castle, Jamie has to decide whether to continue his quest for revenge, or keep the woman he has grown to love at his side. Medeiros is a superb storyteller. Both primary and secondary characters are vividly three-dimensional; her plot is full of tasty twists, and Medeiros can pull every last emotion from the reader with tear-inducing scenes and laugh-out-loud dialogue. --Shelley Mosley

Customer Reviews

I loved Jamie...not only becuase he was rugged and handsome but also becuase he was real and relatable...just like Emma.
Kelly Hohenstern
I have read many romance books with a similar story line but this is wonderfully written with great details and magnificent characters that you just fall in love with.
Amazon Customer
Being a longer book, I was a bit worried that it would fizzle out for me or it would contain a lot of "fluff" in the pages, but it really didn't.

This book is a fun historical romance. Light and fun and full of roguish romance. It starts out in the typical way. Man steals woman to make another suffer, man finds woman surprisingly attractive, woman finds man surprisingly attractive, both find themselves in each others arms and win over the bad man she was about to be married. Now, yes, I did just basically tell you the story, but that formula is as old as perhaps the castle under contention. :) What I liked about this story is that the woman has her own mind and finds strength within her capture. Even though she does rely on Jamie's physical prowess to keep her safe, her wits and inner strength keep her up to the challenge of a bunch of burly men and the highland wilderness. Yes, I liked Emma. She was a good match for Jamie. You don't always find that within these types of stories. I also loved Jamie although there were times I could hit him over the head for being so stubborn.

All in all I give this book 4 stars. It's a fun, light historical romance. If you love a roguish man in a kilt, sexy time in an abandoned church you will enjoy this book.

Lately it seems like the authors I usually read have been writing a lot of contemporary romances but Teresa Medeiros has taken me back with another fantastic historical romance. Ending what seemed to be an endless dry spell of crappy books I can gladly say that this is a fun read that you won't want to put down.

As the oldest daughter of a poor Baron Emmaline Marlowe is set to sacrifice herself as the bride of the elderly Earl of Hepburn in order to restore the funds that she feels she has cost her family. Resigned to her fate she is ready to say her vows when Jamie Sinclair, the dangerous and dashing enemy of the Earl kidnaps her on her wedding day. Hoping to use her to trade back to the Earl for something that will help Jamie solve the murder of his parents he plans to stay detached from her as much as possible. Thinking Emma to be some boring English girl he is unprepared for the fiery temperament she exhibits and she uses this to her advantage. What Emma didn't expect was to fall for the roughly handsome Jamie-he is vastly different from her previous love interests.

From start to finish I liked the characters of Emma and Jamie. Emma was willing to do anything out of loyalty for her family and Jamie was the same way with his clan. Interesting subplots kept me reading page after page and you couldn't help but fall in love with Jamie's wild ways. Wanting to find out who and what murdered Jamie's parents also made it so that I wasn't able to go to sleep until I finished the book. This book was like a ray of sunshine in the crap I've read this summer so I have a new restored hope for romance novels in the future. An easy read with likable characters will make this an easy add to your reading list.

Emmaline Marlowe stands at the altar next to her rheumy, knock-kneed geezer of a groom-to-be, sold into marriage to pay her drunken gambling father's debts, thinking of the wedding she'd dreamed of rather than the one she was facing.

"She shot a panicked glance over her shoulder to find her parents sitting in the Hepburn family pew, beaming proudly at her through eyes glazed with tears. She was a good girl. A dutiful daughter. The daughter they'd always relied upon to set a sound example to her three younger sisters. Elberta, Edwina and Ernestine were huddled together on the pew next to their mother, dabbing at their swollen eyes with their own handkerchiefs."

Oh, Ms. Medeiros. You had me at Elberta. I knew this was going to be fun.

Thankfully for Emma, the wedding is disrupted when yummy Scotsman Jamie Sinclair trots in (literally, on his horse) and abducts her, intending to use her to force her ancient fiancé to reveal his part in a nefarious family scandal and claim victory in the decades-long Sinclair/Hepburn feud. Unfortunately for Jamie, sassy Emma manages to work her way under his leather vest and into his heart, which makes handing her back over to the dusty old man harder than he expects.

This is a wonderful romantic adventure that I ate up in one sitting. I'm a sucker for kidnappings by horse, spunky heroines getting chased through the woods, campfire stories about ghosts and lusty barmaids, shootings and insanely sexy seductions by Highlanders. Emma and Jamie make a great pair and were a pleasure to read; no angsty, "I hate you," moments, just a sparkly couple with great chemistry that you knew would eventually get together, you just never knew when.

The Devil Wears PlaidI really enjoyed this book. I have read many romance books with a similar story line but this is wonderfully written with great details and magnificent characters that you just fall in love with. I do have to admit that I fall for this kind of story line every time and never tire of it. I feel that Teresa is a great writer and this story just comes together so good and is such a great romance. I spent a couple days reading this book as I was so busy with the kids and I found that I just really didn't want to put this book down. I fell in love with the strength and beauty of the main characters and that is one of the most important things for me. I love getting lost in a great romance novel and forgetting about all the worries of the day. If you are looking for a great romance you should read this one.
