Blurb from the cover:
She used to be mad about him.
In Mad, Bad, and Dangerous in Plaid by New York Times bestselling author Suzanne Enoch, high-spirited Rowena MacLawry has come to the Highlands after a spectacularly successful debut Season in London, and has made it painfully clear that she’s outgrown her girlhood obsession with Lachlan MacTier. That’s just fine with him, as he never had any intention of marrying the lass anyway! Yet how can he ignore the fact that the once rough and tumble Winnie has become a very fashionable-and incredibly desirable-young woman…
And now he’s got it bad…
Brawny, rugged Lachlan is nothing like the aristocratic English gentlemen who pursued Winnie-with a passion-in London. Three months away was more than enough to show her a world infinitely more glamorous than the untamed Scottish Highlands-and her beloved childhood crush. But now that she’s decided to find a prospective husband with a bit more polish, could Lachlan finally appreciate her charms? And is it remotely possible to ignore the wild attraction she feels for him?
My rating: 3.5 stars out of a scale of 5
I had read the fourth book in this series, Some Like It Scot, a few years ago and I enjoyed it, so when I saw this book discounted and for sale on Book Outlet I grabbed it. Luckily this past weekend I forgot my kindle at my Mom’s house so I got to read a couple books from my stash. The plot for this book was ok, look back at my review for the other book in the series I think it was probably pretty similar to this one. Ran (oldest brother) is kind of a jerk and all the people can’t communicate with each other well and it causes all kinds of misunderstanding. That was ok though, it all turned out alright in the end! The main characters for this book, Rowena and Lachlan, were sweet and very much in love, although they were kind of immature to start. Also the beginning of Rowena’s story really starts when she flees to London, but due to the fact that those pieces also are involved in the first two books in the series, we don’t hear much about what happens during the three months between her leaving the Highlands and then subsequently returning. As this information is referenced a good amount in the story line, it was a little confusing at first and I was kind of lost as to what had already happened and who it had happened to. Other than that though this was a sweet story and a pretty good book and I would be interested to read more in the series.
