Teresa Medeiros : The Devil Wear’s Plaid
Back Blurb :
Emmaline Marlowe is about to wed the extremely powerful laird of the Hepburn clan to save her father from debtor’s prison, when ruffian Jamie Sinclair burst’s into the abbey on a magnificent black horse ad abduct’s her.
Though he is Hepburn’s sworn enemy, Emma’s mysterious captor is everything her bridegroom is not – Handsome, Virile and Dangerous – and a perilous temptation for her yearning heart.
Jamie cannot allow either one of them to forget she is his pawn in a deadly Highland feud.
So why doe’s he still want her so badly?
My View :
This is the first time I have read Teresa Medieros and I really liked it, it is your usual Historical Romance : Two main character’s who really shouldn’t be anywhere near each other, who are as different as they come one being a naive young woman the other a Notorious Highland Outlaw who fall head over heel’s for one and another, but there is a bit of a twist in the tale with the fact that the Highland Outlaw abduct’s said naive young lass and that is really where the fun begin’s.
The Devil Wear’s Plaid is fast and gripping with incredible chemistry between the two main character’s and really who doesn’t dream of being slung over a large black horse by a devilishly handsome outlaw? Jamie Sinclair is exactly that, tall and devastatingly handsome with that ruthless intelligence that you love in a rogue and what a rogue he is. But there is so much more to Jamie then that, he is a complex and complicated man one minute he is this ruthless outlaw willing to do anything and sacrifice anyone to get what he want’s and the next he is kind, sensuous and hugely protective man who would more heaven and earth just to keep Emma and his band of outlaw’s safe.
Emmaline is the complete opposite she is serious and selfless that she is willing to throw her own happiness out of the window and marry a horrid man that is the the Laird of Hepburn just to make sure that her family is safe from debtor’s prison and the workhouse, she goes into the arranged marriage with the Laird so that she know’s that her family have always got a roof over their head’s. She is an incredible young woman, in way’s wise beyond her year’s and in other’s as naive as a toddler, and obviously with her sheltered upbringing and romantic soul she instantly fall’s for the Charming and enigmatic Jamie Sinclair.
The relation between them is thrilling and atmospheric and you find you gradually lose your self in their fierce and tender romance. This is such an interesting and lovely book and Teresa Medieros is a very gifted writer and one that is very much well worthy a read. If you like Devilishly Handsome Scot’s swanning around the Highland’s in Kilt’s wielding pistol’s on the back of huge black horses you will absolutely love this.
I definitely recommend the Devil Wear’s Plaid, very, very good!
