Thought I'd share a book I recently read and enjoyed.
"The Devil Wears Plaid" by Teresa Medeiros
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 bursts into the abbey on a magnificent black horse and abducts her in one strong swoop. Though he is Hepburn’s sworn enemy, Emma’s mysterious captor is everything her bridegroom is not—handsome, virile, dangerous . . . and a perilous temptation for her yearning heart. Jamie expects Emma to be some milksop English miss, not a fiery, defiant beauty whose irresistible charms will tempt him at every turn. But he cannot allow either one of them to forget he is her enemy and she his pawn in the deadly Highland feud between the clans. So why does he still want her so badly for himself? Stealing his enemy’s bride was simple, but can he claim her innocence without losing his heart?

MY THOUGHTS: Emma has been sold to the highest bidder. An old man of 80, Hepburn is the laird of the clan Hepburn. Emma is 21 and this was her last season before becoming an old maid. Her family is about to be kicked out of their house and her father sent to debtor prison. Emma has made the sacrifice so that doesn't happen. But she's stolen from the alter by Jamie Sinclair, an enemy of the man she is marrying. Sinclair takes Emma into the Highland mountains to wait for his ransom. Emma's tries to run away and falls into a ravine and Sinclair has to rescue her. She also gets a gun and tries to shoot Sinclair. But all this is leading to romance. There is also a big secret surrounding Sinclair's parents death. And Emma figures it out. What is the secret? Well, if I told you that it ruin the book, so you'll have to read it to find out.
MY RATING: 5
