Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

"Banks's first Montgomerys and Armstrongs novel brings romance to 13th-century Scotland. King Alexander II decrees a marriage between the two families, hoping to end their feud. Graeme Montgomery is disappointed that his king has ordered him to wed Eveline Armstrong, the daughter of his enemy. Though Graeme has never meet Eveline, he has heard rumors that she is 'daft' and will be unable to bear him heirs. Despite discovering that she cannot speak, Graeme is impressed by his new wife's innate intelligence and perseverance regardless of the disdain displayed by members of his clan. While the love story between the resolute yet misunderstood woman and the fierce warrior is enticing, Eveline's altruistic nature sometimes seems too good to be true. However, the mystery behind her muteness and the subplots threatening her safety add intrigue to this satisfying, evenly paced historical. Agent: Kimberly Whalen, Trident Media Group."

Candace @ LoveyDoveyBooks, November 20, 2012 (view all comments by Candace @ LoveyDoveyBooks)
Never Seduce a Scot is a brilliant historical romance that captured my very soul. Maya Banks's writing gently tugs the heart as Eveline and Graeme resist the pressures of a rivalry deeply set between their two clans. What initially drew me to the first novel of The Montgomerys and Armstrongs was the fact that it's set in a time and place that makes encountering a strapping Scottish warrior a very high probability. Ultimately, the aspect that made Never Seduce a Scot such a pleasant and refreshing read was Eveline and Graeme - period. Together, they melted my heart and gave power to the strong emotions Banks coaxed from me.

Eveline Armstrong, the underestimated beauty of the Armstrong clan, succumbs to an unavoidable marriage arranged by the king. Rumors spread along the clan and surrounding areas lead people, and Graeme, to view her as daft because she goes through life in her own little bubble, unable to properly communicate with her family the way she used to. Her marriage to Graeme shows that she's a fully capable woman as she works to fit in with his family and clan and uses her ability to read lips to remain aware of her surroundings. Graeme proves to be the most seductive portrayal of a Scottish warrior that I've ever read! He could be a fierce, formidabble leader, but gentle, kind and fair when the need arose. He pushes his people to respect Eveline and protects her when they cross the line with cruel taunts and actions. Eveline and Graeme's chemisty is sweeter than honey, creating a perfect story to cozy up with.

Banks does an excellent job of channeling human nature in this novel. She constructed a situation for Eveline that opened two paths for her, one in which she hides away from her marriage to a hateful clan, the other in which she takes charge of her circumstance and makes the best of it. She makes her choices with grace and just a little trepidation that makes her a greatly admirable character. Seeing the way the Montgomery clan treats Eveline, even when she puts forth an effort to make nice, was tough but so believable. Character actions and reactions were so real, familiar and understandable that the feuding Montgomerys and Armstrongs could have been living in this modern world. Never Seduce a Scot is a classic romance that leaves its readers feeling hopeful and satiated! When Highlander Most Wanted, the next novel in the series, comes around I'll be ready and waiting for more of Maya Banks's stimulating storytelling!
