Looking for a dashing Scottish romance? Look no further than Suzanne Enoch's A Devil in Scotland! The third book in the No Ordinary Hero series is the perfect combination of romance and intrigue.

When Callum MacCreath learns that his older brother, Ian, has died he returns to claim his estate and possibly his brother's widow. Rebecca Sanderson married Callum's brother because he provided safety where Callum was wild and immature. Returning to find his childhood friend is still in mourning for his brother and her father, Callum vows to make good on his promise from all those years ago. With his sidekick wolf, Waya, at his side Callum looks for proof that the Duke of Dunncraigh killed his brother.

Callum is the very definition of an extraordinary hero. Away from Scotland he made a living in Kentucky and grew into a self-sufficient man that works with his hands. He causes a stir when he returns home, immediately going after his enemies and traipsing around town with a wolf by his side. I love that this character knows what he wants, but is willing to compromise for love. Rebecca, once cleared of suspicion, helps Callum protect their family and her assets. These two characters balance each other out and keep readers guessing at which way they'll go, towards or away from each other.

Though Callum identifies his enemies from the start of the novel, the level of intrigue is still high. He strategizes and plots to take his revenge while avoiding the trickery of the Duke. It's exciting and just  a tad suspenseful. Don't miss out on Suzanne Enoch's latest story. A Devil in Scotland is a lovely romance that draws you in and keeps you hanging on to every word!
