Fleeing London, and scandal, Lady Clarissa Burton runs directly into the wife-hunting Earl of Dumfries while traveling on a rutted Scottish road. She wanted peace in Scotland, not a tall and brooding laird who makes her forget that handsome lords are nothing but trouble.
Having spent years of his life fighting English wars, Ewan McDougal, Earl of Dumfries, wants nothing to do with England, or its people, for as long as he lives. He wants a nice Scottish lass to warm his bed and raise a family. So why can’t Ewan stop thinking about Lady Clarissa’s pouty lips or her curves made for a man’s hands? And what happened to her in London that has her running scared?
My Enemy, My Earl by Tammy Andresen (A Laird to Love, #1)
Man. In. A. Kilt. Fiery woman, betrayed, dismayed and mistrustful. Put them together in a Scottish castle and watch the fur fly as the Earl of Dumfries comes seeking a nice Scottish lass to wed and discovers there is one thing to like about the English, the prickly Lady Clarissa Burton with the sharp tongue and short fuse.
In a spicy tale of opposites attracting, these two enemies will find that keeping your enemy close can be an “arousing” experience!
Clarissa has been burned badly in London and she has come to Scotland, to her uncle’s castle to lick her wounds. Ewan has been away at war, fighting in the English army. Now he has come home and will claim the bride he was promised years ago. How could he know that the feisty Clarissa, who is everything he could NEVER want would become the focus of his heart? How can he convince her he is not after anything but her heart, even after he discovers she has a large dowry and has been disgraced in London? Clarissa’s own wounded pride could be her downfall, even as she longs for one more night with the dashing Earl.
You have to love knowing what is going to happen, especially when getting to that ending is filled with spice, sparks, misunderstandings and interfering family. MY ENEMY, MY EARL by Tammy Andresen is one of those historical romances filled with the passions of its characters that are equal parts entertaining, sweet and sometimes so frustrating! Delightful characters, a dashing hero and a strong-willed heroine make this historical romance a sigh worthy and fun read! (And yes, the Earl DOES tell what is under his kilt.)
I received a complimentary ARC edition from Tammy Andresen.
