Hero in the Highlands (No Ordinary Hero #1)
St. Martin's Press / October 4, 2016 / $7.99 print and digital
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?
The hero of Suzanne Enoch’s Hero in the Highlands, Major Gabriel Forrester, is a professional soldier. He is both equally feared and revered for snatching victory from the jaws of defeat, earning the moniker of “The Beast of Bussaco.” He is not at all pleased to learn that he has unexpectedly inherited a Dukedom from an unknown relative, and even less pleased that he must travel to the Highlands to deal with some suspicious doings on his Scottish estate. But he tackles the problem the only way he knows how—as a soldier.
