Review: Forgetting the Scot by Jennifer Trethewey

Forgetting the Scot
Virginia Whitebridge is trapped in a loveless, abusive marriage. The law says her husband can have whatever he wants from her—so he's taken her inheritance. And he tried to kill her. After a close escape, Virginia feels protected for the first time in forever, thanks to the Scottish Highlands and the Highlander Magnus Sinclair. But she must go back to England, regardless of the danger, to reclaim what's hers. Even if it means leaving her heart in Scotland.

It's just Magnus's luck that he's fallen for a woman he can't have. Virginia is rich and titled... and English. To keep her safe, he must follow her to the one place he loathes—England. Where the bowing, preening London Society has a secret language of manners unknown to him. Where he is too large, too uncivilized, too everything. 

Despite omens that death awaits him there, Magnus vows to help Virginia go to London and restore her fortune. Get in. Get out. Or die trying.

This novel is very interesting, well-written, and quite romantic. I loved it and would recommend to all historical romance fans.

Lady Virginia was abducted by someone and sold to a pirate. She was fearing the worst when luckily she was rescued by brave Scot men, along with other women who had also been abducting from their homes. Her companions and she spent some time in Scottland. Enjoying the hospitality of their rescuers. While everyone else was happy to return to their families, Virginia dreaded it. She didn't want to go back to her husband. He was abusive and she feared he might be behind her abduction. Her life would never be the same that much was for sure, but she hoped that things turned out for the best.

Magnus couldn't help but fall in love with Virginia. She was beautiful, intelligent, and everything a man could desire. Unfortunately, she was also married. But when he learned about the wrong-doings of her husband he hoped that she would choose him. But nothing in life is ever that simple as that. One thing is for sure though, he would protect her and do everything in his power to keep her safe.

I really enjoyed reading it. I received a complimentary copy of this book via NetGalley.
