Book Summary
Maya Banks, the New York Times bestselling author of erotic romance, romantic suspense, and contemporary romance, has captivated readers with her steamy Scottish historical novels, perfect for fans of Julie Garwood. Never Seduce a Scot features a remarkable woman whose rare gift teaches a gruff Scottish warrior how to listen with his heart.  
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 dutyunprepared 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.
My Review
Oh what a story. I love Scottish Highlander warriors. How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. I really should read more historical fictional novels.
This story has it all. Hot warriors, timid but fierce women to make me proud. There is tension like no other. There aren’t a ton of sex scenes but it didn’t need it. The buildup was quiet nice.
The believability was off the charts. This author made me believe that this was a non-fiction tale and not a fiction one. But what did I know? I did know that I would consider a leap back in time to experience this tale even though women were considered objects and not vessels of intelligence.
Overall, I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book in this series.
