Virginia Whitebridge is trapped in a loveless, abusive marriage. The law says her husband can have whatever he wants from her—so he’s taken her inheritance. And he tried to kill her. After a close escape, Virginia feels protected for the first time in forever, thanks to the Scottish Highlands and the Highlander Magnus Sinclair. But she must go back to England, regardless of the danger, to reclaim what’s hers. Even if it means leaving her heart in Scotland.
It’s just Magnus’s luck that he’s fallen for a woman he can’t have. Virginia is rich and titled… and English. To keep her safe, he must follow her to the one place he loathes—England. Where the bowing, preening London Society has a secret language of manners unknown to him. Where he is too large, too uncivilized, too everything.
Despite omens that death awaits him there, Magnus vows to help Virginia go to London and restore her fortune. Get in. Get out. Or die trying.
Forgetting the Scot by Jennifer Trethewey is an exciting historical romance novel. One that swept me up into the highlands where a rough-edged yet hot Scott finds his woman. A bachelor not ever wanting to marry finds himself propelled towards the English beauty. She attracted him in ways many haven’t. They shared a hot kiss. Only that left them both wanting more…only she is a married lady. He is a Scottish farmer. Their worlds are so different. But neither can forget the other…
Jennifer Tretheway combined a lot of themes in clever way. Foster care, family, second chances at love are just some themes found here. Then, there was abuse, betrayal, and honor. I was was deeply engaged while reading this book. The characters snatched my full-attention. The chapters flew by and before I knew it, I was finished. From England to the Highlands and then back to both again, I fell in love with the protagonists. Their journey was an epic one. Fear, loss, love, and hope filled the pages. Overall, I highly recommend Forgetting the Scot to all.
