Hit Me With Your Best Scot by Suzanne Enoch
Wild Wicked Highlanders #3

The last brother finds his English bride and in so doing finds happiness in spite of upsetting his mother and a few others. That said, this was not my favorite of the trilogy and I did have trouble relating to Coll, Persephone and the plot. I didn’t feel I knew Coll or Persephone well, had trouble understanding them and their backstories, and felt that the sizzle that I would have liked between them seemed to be missing in their relationship.

The story did wrap up some of the loose ends about the parents and we did see the brothers with their partners but…all in all…it seemed a bit flat. There was a bit of a mystery about who was after Persephone and who she really was but, again, I didn’t buy into it as much as I would have liked to. I did enjoy the way Persephone’s parents were handled at the end. I guess is was just underwhelmed after hoping that Coll, who is bigger than life, would end up with a different happily ever after.

Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for the ARC – This is my honest review.

Review originally published at Romancing Romances.

I received an eARC at no cost from the author/publisher, and I am leaving a voluntary and honest review. Thank you.

This is the last book of the Wild Wicked Highlanders series, and it brings us the story of the oldest MacTaggert brother, Coll.

Coll is a bit, like his sister Eloise likes to call him, an angry mountain. But, as most romance heroes, he has a soft heart, and is a very unselfish person.

Persephone Jones is an actress, but also more than that, and when her life is in jeopardy, Coll jumps in at the chance to help her, spend time with her, and also upset his very English mother.

What somewhat started as a pursuit of spite, turns into a lovely affair of the heart, with Coll falling in love and declaring himself to Persephone, despite his concerns regarding having here the mistress of his house, because, as he so pointedly says, “I love ye. I ken it doesn’t change a thing, you’re still an actress and I’m the oldest son of an earl (…). I have a duty, and ye have a life you’ve made for yourself. But I’ve looked for nine –weeks and longer than that in the Highlands – to find a woman with whom I’d care to spend my life, and I damned well know when I’ve found one. It’s someaught I’m willing to fight for. But not if dunnae feel the same about me.” (From Hit Me With Your Best Scot. Copyright © 2021 by Suzanne Enoch). I love this quote because it says yes, Colls loves Persephone, but he’s also giving her the opportunity to share her own feelings, no matter what they are. Because it’s only worth fighting against the world if you’re together.

We have several attempts to harm Persephone throughout the book, and I have to say, I did not see it coming until almost the end, when we found out who the person trying to harm our heroine was. Very well done plot wise.

I really enjoyed this book, it was fun to spend some time with the brothers again, and to see Lady Aldriss and Angus together for once. Maybe will get a book, or a novella about their reunion?

I also really liked that Coll admitted that Persephone absolutely loved the theatre and acting, and therefore never questioned removing her from that world after marrying her, which most of the times happens, so it was refreshing to find a hero who admitted this right away, and always said any change in profession would only be Persie’s choice.

In the end, it was an entertaining book, with a hero learning what falling in love meant for him, and what he was willing to abdicate in the name of love – because compromise, my friends, is the key to a loving, happy relationship. ( )

Coll MacTaggert and his younger brothers Niall and Aden are strong, strapping, rugged, wickedly handsome, heart-stopping Scotsmen, kilts and all. So why are these dangerously untamed men mingling with the ton in London? Because their mother controls the money and when she left their father in Scotland a dozen or so years ago she made a condition that the eldest son must marry an Englishwoman before their baby sister marries or lose the ancestral estate, period. So here they come, and London society may never recover.

Hit Me With Your Best Scot is the third (and sadly the final) entry in the Wild Wicked Highlanders series by Suzanne Enoch. I wish this was 7 Brides for 7 Brothers or something, because I love these guys and this series and wish it would go on and on. Yes, it’s that much fun. You’ll laugh and swoon and worry over all the trouble the MacTaggert brothers get in.

Coll is the biggest and brawniest of the three, and people that don’t know him tend to underestimate him as just that huge, dumb brother. Not so. He is in no hurry to marry and if he must his plan is to find a bride, marry, and leave her in England while he returns to Scotland. He has no interest in the socialite his mother selects for him. However, his brother Niall does, but that’s another story for another (fantastic) book. By the start of Hit Me With Your Best Scot both Niall and Aden have found their soulmates and are deep in wedded bliss. Coll just doesn’t get it. But time is running out and he needs to find a wife in order to save their land. So he’s going to balls and the theater and hating every minute of it, and scaring most of the young girls he meets.

Enter Persephone Jones. She’s famous, wealthy, independent, and smarter than anyone he knows, and about as interested in marriage as he is. But that’s fine; she’s an actress which makes her totally unsuitable to be the wife of a Laird. He thinks they’ll just have some fun. And when he learns she needs a little protection and rescuing he’s fine with that, too. Only problem is, besides the heat there is some genuine affection there and they are starting to look like the perfect match. How can that be? She has secrets, a lot of secrets. And is in danger, a lot of danger. Can she share her secrets with Coll?

Hit Me With Your Best Scot was such a perfect read. Characters you can’t help but love, a plot that moves right along, keeping you turning pages, smiling, holding your heart, wondering how they will ever escape the danger and the constraints of society. Thanks to St. Martin’s Press for providing an advance copy via NetGalley. I thoroughly enjoyed Hit Me With Your Best Scot and the other books in this wonderful series. I will be looking for more books by author Suzanne Enoch. All opinions expressed in this review are my own. ( )

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Perhaps he wasn’t Macbeth, but Coll MacTaggert might have been some perfect, pagan god of the old Highlands, lit by yellow lamplight and chiseled to stunning perfection by some unknown hand. Trouble, her heart beat in a fast tattoo. Trouble.

Third in the Wild Wicked Highlanders series, eldest brother Coll MacTaggert, Viscount Glendarril, is the only brother to have not found a bride. If you've read the other two books in the series, you'll know that the three MacTaggert brothers have come to London from the Highlands to fulfill a contract that their parents signed when they married. Their mother, Francesca, left the Highlands seventeen years ago after a fight with their father and they haven't seen her since. The contract stipulates that the three brothers all have to be married before their younger sister Eloise or their mother's money will stop funding their home Aldriss Park. With Eloise set to marry in four weeks, Coll is feeling the pressure as his other two brothers have found their wives. When he is escaping two women his mother is pushing at him at the theater, he ends up backstage and meets the one woman who makes him want to get to know her.

“If you’re not careful,” she said aloud, “I’m going to begin liking you.”

Persephone is the toast of the London stage and has been for the last eight years after she seemed to come out of nowhere. She's used to having to dodge unwanted attention but when the striking Highlander saves her from a particularly ardent aristocrat and doesn't force anything from her, she's interested. She's protective of her independence but when a string of accidents that seem to target her, she starts to think someone is after her and keeping Coll close is a good idea. Coll would never leave a damsel in distress and tweaking his mother by claiming her contract didn't say a he had to marry a Lady Englishwoman has him claiming to be Persephone's protector and fiancé. It's a fake relationship that is starting to get some emotional strings attached.

He’d saved her life at least once, had left a grand ball and his best chance to find a wife to be certain she wasn’t injured. No, she didn’t quite know how to classify him, but she did know one thing. She trusted him.

After reading and enjoying the first two in the series, I was a little worried that “let my fists do the talking” Coll might stomp about too much for me, but while he bloodies some noses, he's the strong but listening hero Persephone needed. The first half wanders a bit that slows the pace down while the author sets the story and makes sure to give Persephone's theater setting time and spotlight, if you're willing to sit and settle instead of wanting to rush, it does fill out instead of bog down the story. By the 30% mark, Persephone and Coll have hit the sheets (or rather the hay cart) and their hearts are well on the way to love, even if their minds are still caught up in actress and Viscount. Throughout, there is a some alluding to Persephone having a big secret and the hints drop to a reveal at about 60%. The reveal is nothing surprising for seasoned romance readers as the way to a happily ever after is clear.

Persephone Jones was the lass he wanted. Damn all propriety and tradition that said he couldn’t have her. And damn anyone who tried to stop him.

Persephone and Coll are, rightly, the best part of this book and at times I wished they could have just been left to be together. There's some of the emotional angst from Coll and feelings of abandonment from his mother and since this was the connecting thread throughout the series, I do think we should have gotten more of a conversation healing this not only between Coll and his mother but all three brothers hugging it out or something together with her. I just felt like there was still some unresolved angst from this. I also thought the wrap-up and danger from Persephone's secret didn't quite stick the landing at the end. When something is slowly carried throughout a story and built up to have importance, it's easy for it to feel too quickly wrapped up and anti-climatic when it only takes a couple pages to reveal and deal with villains, which happened for me here.

Evidently, she’d been luckier than she deserved. She’d hoped to find a capable man. What she’d found had been an honorable one.

There were times I thought the story could have been tightened and cleaned up because of how it favors a slower pace instead of snappy but I greatly enjoyed how Persephone and Coll dealt with each other honestly (Persephone has her secret but she's honest with her intentions) and with care. I can't help but hope for Eloise to get her own book, with the appearance of their father Angus I hope she travels to the Highlands to replace her English fiancé with a Scot. The MacTaggerts are a family I became fond of and would gladly read more about. ( )

A fitting conclusion to Highlanders series!

What a wild ride it’s been and in this third book in the series Coll MacTaggert, Viscount Glendarril, lives up to the MacTaggert tradition.
This is the man who pursued a villain down Grosvenor Square clad in nothing but his boots and carrying a large sword, to the secretly scandalized delight of the ton.
It stands to reason any answer to his mother’s demands for an English bride would be guaranteed to fly in her face. Remember the MacTaggert men had to find English brides or loose the monies needed to support Aldriss Park, the MacTaggert Highland stronghold, and all it’s dependents
These three brawny alpha males were dragged into doing something against their will by their Sassenach mother. Two had fallen for English women but now it’s Coll’s time for pay back, as his mother parades a series of either ambitious or feather brained chits before him. Being ambushed at the theatre was too much.
Coll chooses to give his mother a run for her money, so when he declares he’ll have an English bride of his own finding his mother didn’t expect an actress to be Coll’s answer.
The thing is he didn’t expect to become so enamoured of Persephone Jones, a talented Shakespeare actress, and when her life is threatened Coll finds himself facing a few hard questions.
Another delight from Enoch!
