Author Julia London is at it again! With Wild Wicked Scot, we are introduced to her new series, The Highland Grooms, and what a tale it is! The story of Margot and Arran is rich and poignant, heartwarming, and heartbreaking. A society miss wed to a Highland Laird, both ridiculously strong in their beliefs, must learn to live and love as one. The tale takes us from the wilds of Scotland to the lush English countryside, all in a madcap dash to stop a wild rumor. I loved following their wild and beautiful tale of love and anguish, lies and contrition. This is an amazing book that is absolutely at the top of my favorites pile!
It’s been three long years since she fled. Margot Armstrong, also known as Margot Mackenzie, is beyond floored when her father commands her, after all this time, back to Scotland and the husband she left years ago. With a heavy heart and a fearful step, she leaves, terribly unsure of what her reception will be. Upon reaching his ancestral home, she realizes little has changed. Arran is still as loud and rough as he was before, but Margot is resigned to her task: find out if he is a traitor to the Crown. As she resolved to repair her marriage, Arran finds he doesn’t trust her at all. But when rumors begin to swirl of a spy in their midst, Arran and Margot must come together in order to survive. Who can they trust?
Wicked intrigue unfolds as an unlikely marriage leads to a path of risky desire in the lush, green Scottish Highlands
Born into riches and groomed in English luxury, Margot Armstrong didn't belong in a Scottish chieftain's devil-may-care world. Three years ago she fled their marriage of convenience and hasn't looked back—except to relive the moments spent in wild, rugged Arran McKenzie's passionate embrace. But as their respective countries' fragile unity threatens to unravel, Margot must return to her husband to uncover his role in the treachery before her family can be accused of it.
Red-haired, green-eyed Margot was Arran's beautiful bride. Her loss has haunted him, but her return threatens everything he has gained. As the Highland mists carry whispers of an English plot to seize McKenzie territory, he must outmaneuver her in games of espionage…and seduction. But even as their secrets tangle together, there's nothing to prevent love from capturing them both and leading them straight into danger.
