Medeiros fans can savor once again another of her historical achievements. Some Like It Wild may seem
on the surface like yet another Highland yarn complete with a kilt-wearing hero and an English damsel, but Medeiros surprises us with rich plot, endearing characters, surprising twists, and a charming end. To tell you the truth, I was dreading reading yet another Scottish tale, but Some Like It Wild had me glued page after page.
and her sister, Sophie, are left penniless after their mother is killed (or was
it murder?) in a theater fire. With nothing but their acting skills and the clothes on their backs, they set off across the Scottish countryside on
a daring scheme. It seems the Duke of Warrick is in ill health and in search of his long-lost son to carry on the title after he is gone
It has been heard that the son, along with the mother and the Duke’s wife, succumbed to cabin fever while crossing the Atlantic.
For Pamela, the reward offered for bringing the Duke his son is too great; when they are accosted while traveling by coach through the
Highlands, it seems Pamela had found the man to impersonate the Duke’s missing heir.
Conner Kincaid was just another highwayman out to rob pretty damsels in distress,
but he is the one robbed of his wild ways and sent to live in a gilded cage of fine porcelain and tea parties. Can Conner pull off this latest swindle and live a life of a highly sought-after gentleman with Pamela by his side,
or will his wild ways have him drifting back to his Highland beginnings?
I love Theresa Medeiros, and I was completely besotted with Some Like It Wild.
