Publisher's Summary

Wicked intrigue unfolds as an unlikely marriage leads to a path of risky desire in the lush, green Scottish Highlands.

Born into riches and groomed in English luxury, Margot Armstrong didn't belong in a Scottish chieftain's devil-may-care world. Three years ago she fled their marriage of convenience and hasn't looked back - except to relive the moments spent in wild, rugged Arran McKenzie's passionate embrace. But as their respective countries' fragile unity threatens to unravel, Margot must return to her husband to uncover his role in the treachery before her family can be accused of it.

Red-haired, green-eyed Margot was Arran's beautiful bride. Her loss has haunted him, but her return threatens everything he has gained. As the Highland mists carry whispers of an English plot to seize McKenzie territory, he must outmaneuver her in games of espionage - and seduction. But even as their secrets tangle together, there's nothing to prevent love from capturing them both and leading them straight into danger.

First book I haven’t finished in a long time.

Unfortunately, the author beat the point of Margo needing forgiveness to death. There never really was a reason that Aaron could fall in love with her, it seemed that everything she did was simply “the worst” and “unforgivable.” I really do hate a groveling heroine, it seemed that she could never catch a break.

If Aaron loved her so much when they were first married, why did he never go after her? In my opinion the true hero of a book would have gone after the woman that he loved, even if she left him after four months of marriage. I honestly couldn’t take the strange back-and-forth a minute longer, I had about three hours left and I marked it as finished.

I really don’t understand anyone who could give this book a five star review. You can literally read any other Scottish historical romance and get so much more satisfaction from another books characters and plot. It’s like the author had no other ideas except for, “I think the heroine needs to gravel on the floor the entire time, and the hero thumbs his nose down at her, but secretly loves her.”

Derik Perkins is a gem, and I have heard him in far better works than this.

In the end, I would try a different book, I’m still in shock that it was so insufferably bad.

Another great story

I was excited throughout most of this story but the end brought me to tears. Tears of joy of course.

Sexy, highland romance!

The narrator is just as important as the author for me in audio book so when I find a great combination, I'm hooked! This is a story where you really see the characters grow and mature before they find happiness. I liked how the lead evolved from a spoiled brat to a thoughtful woman. This is Highland Grooms, Book 1. Looking forward to Book 2!

Just horrible

It’s a ‘he hates her, holds her accountable for every problem, ignores her, uses her for sex’ type book. She’s an airhead, truly an idiot. I’m supposed to be thankful he forgives her in the end. Yikes! Like Derek Perkins tho. It deserves a minus 5 because I expect more from this author.

Wait...huh??

I listened to this entire book hoping at some point it would get better, but it just kept getting more ridiculous. Margot is actually the worst. I don't understand what he sees in her. Like what could possibly be the foundation of their relationship? Also, the line that said something to the effect of "She was aroused by his frustration with her." ???????

The ending also felt very rushed. Narrator was great though. I guess I'll try the next one to see if it gets better?

Just okay

This story was ok. Not great but just okay. I was not a fan of the flashback and flash forward parts in the beginning. A little more excitement could have been added to that plot.

Predictable but still enjoyable

Any additional comments?

I think Julia London's earlier books were braver, more interesting, with characters that wern't so wishy washy
