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.

Three years later she is back, not because she wanted to come but because her father has sent her. She was to spy on her husband to see if he was part of the upcoming Jacobite rebellion. Though she came back to the Highlands unwillingly, she began to have feelings for her husband.
Julie London, has created a wonderful world of the Scottish Highlands prior to the Jacobite rebellion. Her characters are well written and draw you in to their feelings. While Arran is a strong warrior, he's not afraid to let his feelings for his wife show - even when he doesn't feel like he can trust her - he still loves her. The couple gets the Happily Ever After they so richly deserve.
For me, what really ticked me off upfront was a verra bonny lass sitting on the hero’s lap upon her return. Then there was his OTT too hurtful, degrading responses. He threatened to backhand her, folks. During their intimate encounter that same night, she was good enough to hit the sheets with, but he made her not look at him.
With a constant “I’ll never trust you again” theme, a majority of this storyline is the hero acting hateful and the heroine finding herself caught in the middle of the mission she was sent on and confusion over who the real traitor might be.
It you like lots of relationship angst, a groveling heroine being used as a pawn, who not only wants the hero to like/trust her again but convince the whole clan she’s not the devil at the same time she’s sent to spy on him/lie to him, and can put up with a hurtful at times hero, you might want to check this one out. There is, of course, a major subplot playing out that is steering the course of this second chance romance with some pretty obvious villains.
The author set us up to think he wasn’t celibate, because, nothing says I fool around with the lasses more than to find him with a verra bonny one sitting on his lap. Yet he claims to never have strayed. For someone who claims not to like his wife, he still had no qualms about hitting the sheets with her at the drop of her chemise.
Title: Wild, Wicked Scot, Series: The Highland Grooms (Book 1), Pages: 378, Author: Julia London, very hurtful at times hero, groveling heroine being used as a pawn, VERY steamy scenes, HEA, no OW/OM drama, didn’t stand by/fight for his girl, second chance, arranged marriage three years prior.

I do recommend Wild Wicked Scot to all historical romance fans, especially those who love to read about strong highlanders with a lot of love to give.
