WILD AT HEART
Scotland, 1812: He s ferocious and rugged to the bone, an English soldier more at home on the battlefield than in any Society drawing room. And when Major Gabriel Forrester learns that he s inherited the massive Scottish Highlands title and estate of a distant relation, the last thing he wants to do is give up the intensity of the battlefield for the too-soft indulgences of noble life. But Gabriel Forrester does not shirk his responsibilities, and when he meets striking, raven-eyed lass Fiona Blackstock, his new circumstances abruptly become more intriguing.
Like any good Highlander, Fiona despises the English and the new Duke of Lattimer is no exception. Firstly, he is far too attractive for Fiona s peace of mind. Secondly, his right to her castle is a travesty, since it s been clan Maxwell property for ages. As the two enter a heated battle of wills, an unexpected passion blazes into a love as fierce as the Highlands themselves. Is Fiona strong enough to resist her enemy s advances or is Gabriel actually her hero in disguise?
It s time to fall in love with Suzanne Enoch.

Enoch (Some Like It Scot) produces another bold Highland fling in this stirring historical romance. Maj. Gabriel Forrester is enjoying the Duke of Wellington’s 1812 campaign near Salamanca in Spain when he receives the unexpected news that he is now the Duke of Lattimer, a title that comes with a 10,000-acre estate in Scotland. The estate was originally owned by Scottish lairds, and it’s been cursed ever since it was taken over by the hated English. He arrives to find the place run by black-eyed Scottish spitfire Fiona Blackstock, who despises all Englishmen. She predictably goes weak in the knees in Gabriel’s presence, disguising it by raging at his English arrogance—which is a cover for his own developing attraction to her. Gradually, they manage to overcome all the barriers that separate them. Enoch alternates Fiona’s spunky feminism with Gabriel’s down-to-earth pragmatism in this adventurous tale of sex and war, and Gabriel proves himself a dashing expert at both. With colorful secondary characters, judicious lashings of Scots dialect, and lush summertime Highland landscapes, Enoch creates a heady romantic atmosphere that’s sure to captivate the genre’s eager audience.
