The Highlander Is All That
Elizabeth St. Claire has always been hard to please. Dreaming solely of Highlander men her whole life, no prancing London Lord can stand a chance at winning her heart...
... But perhaps a Scotsman can.
Elizabeth watches intrigued as the Highlander of her dreams, a Scotsman named Hamish Robb, arrives to oversee her season at the behest of her cousin, the Duke of Caithness. Elizabeth doesn’t hide her feelings for the striking Scot. But Hamish, determined to obey his order to protect the St. Claire sisters, steadfastly rejects her every seducing lure.
Believing that the debutante Elizabeth deserves a better, wealthier man, Hamish continues to turn away from her affection, even though he doesn’t exactly want to. Can this Highlander Scot resist the tempting seductress’ attempts to win his heart?

Elizabeth and her sisters are beginning their first season at the direction of their cousin a Scottish duke. While Elizabeth isn’t averse to finding a husband, what she really wants is a Scotsman. Hamish and his friend are sent to London to act as emissaries for the duke in overseeing the St. Claire’s girls as they are led by their aunt on a husband hunt.
This is a fun rowdy story with plenty of laughs especially when the sisters are all together. The beginning felt rushed between Elizabeth and Hamish and I wasn’t particular to her lack of innocence or his fear and angst when put in a compromising position. However, at around the fifty percent mark this book took off and I fell in love with pretty much everything afterwards.
It’s a fast read with witty dialogue, villains, humor and a bit of steam.
