Wonderful beginning to a new series by Maya Banks. The combination of a deaf heroine and a hero who is caught between the need for vengeance and the need to be fair an honorable is the best story line I have read in a long time. Ms. Banks writes a story that is funny, serious, sad and heartwarming all in 372 pages. I received this book 3 days ago and was so caught up in the story that I read it every spare moment I had. Eveline & Graeme are in my top 10 for favorite characters. I cannot wait until the next installment.
I just finished reading Never Seduce a Scot by Maya Banks. The story was exceptional and very believable. The characters in the story are Eveline Armstrong and Graeme Montgomery. The clans have hated each other since Graeme’s Grandfather was killed during a battle with the Armstrong. Peace is not in the minds of either family. Now the King has ordered that Graeme marry the daughter of his rival clan to get the peace he wants in the Highlands. Even though Eveline is a beautiful and doesn’t speak, her family is very protective of her. But Eveline’s father will honor the Kings wishes so his clan will not become outlaws and their lands seized. When Eveline finds out what has taken place, she is a bit wary because the Montgomery clan is the enemy. Eveline accepts her duty to her family and meets her intended. She is overwhelmed by the handsome visage of a man who stirs her body and soul. Her betrothed has the deepest voice that speaks to her heart. Can the clans come together to mend their ways or will blood be shed because of past tragedies? Please read the fantastic love story of two people who are meant to be. Ms Banks is truly remarkable author and hope for more on the proud clans of the Montgomerys and Armstrongs.
