Book: Suffering the Scot
- Author: Nichole Van
- My Rating: 5 out of 5 bagpipes
I’ll be honest, I love everything Nichole Van writes. You should check out all of her work on Kindle Unlimited, seriously. That being said, I read Suffering the Scot because I’m trying to read 100 books this year, and hers are usually quick reads. I found myself torn between binge reading it all in one night, and taking it slow and savoring every page. (I binged it in one night, in case you were wondering.)
Let me set the scene for you: It’s a period romance. Our leading man is the charming and very Scottish Andrew Langston. Our leading lady is the proper, well mannered, and very English Jane Everard. When Langston becomes the new Earl of Hadley, Lady Jane’s home, they mix about as well as oil and water. Hijinks ensue! Langston and Jane start to discover that there’s more to each other than what’s on the surface. Cue the dreamy sigh.
I couldn’t put the book down. It was clever, it was funny, it had one of my favorite tropes: enemies to lovers, and it had one of the best “meet cutes” for our main characters. There was nothing I didn’t love about it. My biggest problem was that I read it before my sister and so I couldn’t squeal and discuss with her immediately. (If you read this book and you need to squeal and discuss, I’m here for you.)
If you’re looking for a quick read, you like period romance, romantic comedies, or Jane Austen – but with slightly less angst, I recommend this book to you!
