ARC Review: Never Seduce A Scot by Maya Banks

by Maya Banks
Publisher: Ballantine Books
Purchase Links: Amazon Barnes & Noble
E-Book 418 pages

Eveline Armstrong is fiercely loved and protected by her powerful clan, but outsiders consider her “touched.” Beautiful, fey, with a level, intent gaze, she doesn’t speak. No one, not even her family, knows that she cannot hear. Content with her life of seclusion, Eveline has taught herself to read lips and allows the outside world to view her as daft. But when an arranged marriage into a rival clan makes Graeme Montgomery her husband, Eveline accepts her duty—unprepared for the delights to come. Graeme is a rugged warrior with a voice so deep and powerful that his new bride can hear it, and hands and kisses so tender and skilled that he stirs her deepest passions.

Graeme is intrigued by the mysterious Eveline, whose silent lips are ripe with temptation and whose bright, intelligent eyes can see into his soul. As intimacy deepens, he learns her secret. But when clan rivalries and dark deeds threaten the wife he has only begun to cherish, the Scottish warrior will move heaven and earth to save the woman who has awakened his heart to the beautiful song of a rare and magical love.

Perfect ~ Keeper

I am a huge fan of Maya Banks Sweet Series and KGI series. She is a talented author that knows how to write in any genre, with a beautiful writing voice and it shows more in Never Seduce A Scot.

Graeme is an alpha male who is protective, sweet, loving, caring and honorable hero. The love he has for Eveline is beautiful. He puts her needs before his. After he falls in love with her and she lets him know she is not happy and wants to go home, he ask her to stay so he can show her that he can make their marriage work and do better with protecting her from his clan. It was a teary eye moment for me.

Eveline is a strong will woman and wants to show Graeme that she can be head of the Keep so she helps with the ladies in the Keep. All she wants is to be accepted by Graeme’s clan but ladies in the keep do not make it easy for her.

I loved Graeme and Eveline together. Their chemistry together is beautiful and of course Maya Banks has a way of writing sweet and toe curling sex scenes.

Graeme relationship with his sister Rorie and brothers Bowen and Teague are sweet and real. Bowen and Teague are amazing as they stick up for their brother. Rorie who I just adored and loved how her friendship grows with Eveline.

Never Seduce A Scot is a keeper for me. It was a feel good book about two people who were forced in a marriage, never new love but found it. Great start to a good series that I look forward to reading Bowen’s story in Highlander Most Wanted.
