There’s no matchmaking an unruly heart
When a prominent Scottish family faces a major scandal weeks before their daughter’s wedding, they turn in desperation to the enigmatic fixer for the aristocracy, Nichol Bain. Remarkably skilled at making high-profile problems go away, Nichol understands the issue immediately. The family’s raven-haired ward, Maura Darby, has caught the wandering eye—and rather untoward advances—of the groom.
Nichol assuredly escorts Maura toward his proposed solution: an aging bachelor for her to marry. But rebellious Maura has no interest in marrying a stranger, especially when her handsome traveling companion has captivated her so completely. Thankfully, Nichol loves a challenge, but traveling with the bold and brash Maura has him viewing her as far more than somebody’s problem. Which raises a much bigger issue—how can he possibly elude disaster when the heart of the problem is his own?
Maura is stubborn and sassy, and Nichol is just so sweet. They both definitely have some similarities in that they've had some hardships in their backgrounds. Nichol is a sweetheart and just so lovable due to the respect and care he shows toward Maura (this should be standard right? I wish it was). Maura could very easily have gone through this journey by herself, but that wouldn't be too much of a romance right? Either way, she's one strong woman which I loved.
All in all I enjoyed Seduced by a Scot because it showed the struggles of both characters, emotionally and circumstantially, and their power and will to get through it - and ultimately be together.
