This is clearly Teresa Medeiros best book ever created since it has everything that you would find in an excellent book drama adventure suspense and a full blown romance that will blow any romance fan away Teresa Medeiros has done an awesome job at creating a story about dark secrets and forbidden love and I loved the way that Teresa Medeiros has put the most shocking moments in this book which regarded Jamie s dark past in the right places without making the moments too over the top and surprising to read about I also loved the action scenes throughout this book as I was seriously holding on this book for dear life wondering if Jamie and Emma would ever escape from all the obstacles that they have to face throughout their journey Now let us discuss about the best part of this book the characters I loved the character Emma even though I will admit she did sort of annoyed me whenever she acts like she is better than everyone else but she is also shown as being a strong and independent heroine who did not let Jamie s rash actions get the best of her Emma always speaks her mind about the situation she is thrown into and I also loved her intelligence as she uses her wits to get her out of various situations and help out Jamie and his men Another character I really loved was Jamie Sinclair who is seriously the best bad boy outlaw I have ever read in any romance novel as he can be both ruthless yet caring at the same time I will admit at first that I was a bit uncomfortable about Jamie City Improbable kidnapping Emma for his own reasons but after I saw howind and brave and muscular he really is I started to really love his character Also when I found out about Jamie s dark past I really sympathized with him since his secret is so unexpected that you have to read this book yourself to feel the full impact I also loved how Jamie and Emma s love came to be as they fought with each other at first but they eventually got closer together once they uncovered each other s dark secrets and I loved the way that Jamie always tried to save Emma from any ind of trouble on their journeyThere are many sex scenes in this book so anyone who does not like sex scenes might want to skip over the sex scenes in this bookOverall The Devil Wears Plaid is a truly brilliant romance novel that every romance fan and Teresa Medeiros fan should definitely check outReview is

M scenes are very well done with just enough description to make you catch your breath a time or two and the build up to them will also have you sighing Jamie is a fabulous whisperer The epilogue was good in that it came full circle and repeated the start to the book It ll no doubt put a big smile on your face especially the old bitties and their blow like the wind chatteringOut of the two main characters I really liked Jamie He s a slow sizzle and burn ind of hero who goes after what he wants most of the time and doesn t let things stand in his way There s the odd wavering but he uickly gets back on the straight and narrow and takes matters into his own hands As for the heroine she has her moments but I d have liked to have seen independence or fighting the attraction she had for Jamie a little longerSo the story has some good parts and if you haven t read a lot of romances you may really like it but if you have read a few you ll likely have that tired seen it all before feel making this just an ok read DEATH OF ROMANCE A PLAY IN ONE ACTCASTEmmaline A sheltered English lass with a tender young body very smartJamie A barbaric Highlander with the body of a god and a painful

off after tossing Emma onto his horseSCENE 2 A forest in t Inow some of you will love this one Me I found it good I get tired of the same old virgin routine this is why I stay from historical romance so much just about every time I pick one up it has the virgin heroine and the hero has all the women he wants before and during it just drives me crazy This one you get a little robin hood and the McCoy s and the Hatfield s going on It has a excellent start and its very funny at times Emmaline finds herself taken by Jamie Sinclair on her wedding day Little does she No Way Home know Jamie and her was to be husband Hepburn family has been true enemies for a very long time Jamie also helps others out that finds themselves in the clenches of the Hepburn s What Emmaline doesn t expect was to fall for someone like Jamie Wasn t hating it but wasn t seeing any compelling reason toeep reading it either And the repetitiousness of the language was a bit much everyone and everything was so young and tender it was like reading an ad for chicken Readthis review on Got Fiction book blogThis book had a lot of the old cliched plot devices a gruff Highlander on horseback barging in on a wedding Sequins and Spurs kidnapping the bride holding her for ransomyou get the picture But younow for being cliches I ve actually only ever read one story where the hero barged in on a wedding Karen Marie Moning s To Tame a Highland Warrior So for me this was all newThe beginning cracked me up because our heroine Emmaline is being married off to some old goat pardon ahem a randy old goat to save her father from debtor s prison What was so funny is that she s 22 and the audience is talking about how lucky she is to be marrying the old earl and how old she isand how she s very lucky the old earl has enough experience in bed snicker to satisfy herBut alas as they are saying their vows several men burst in with guns and the man on horseback Jamie Sinclair tells the old earl he s here for his bride he abducts Emma and takes her high into the mountains where the earl s men will never find themThe majority of this story takes place while on the run and Emma has DK Adventures known nothing but aindly old man who wants an heir whilst Jamie In The Name of God knows the true evil in the old goat s soulI actually think it got a bit slow towards the middle but once the two realized they were in love and he was still going to ransom her off it really picked up Since the earl had been suspected ofilling Jamie s parents when he was a babe Jamie wanted proof It came from a very unlikely source and it was so not what we were expecting In a wow way not in an out of left field ind of wayBut the oh so predictable ending I d predicted wasWrong I was totally surprised at what had happened and I was soo endeared to Ian the old earl s great nephew and Jamie s best friend when they were younger there s a long story there that I was incredibly happy with the outcomeAnd watching Emma blossom under the idnapping ordeal was great She changed just enough to stay true to her characterThe ending was a bit of a muddle thought IMHO I think the ending with Jamie Emma and Ian was brilliant however the old earl s comeuppance. Lair bursts into the abbey on a magnificent black horse and abducts her in one strong swoop Though he is Hepburn’s sworn enemy Emma’s mysterious captor is everything her bridegroom is not handsome virile dangerous and a perilous temptation for her yearning heart Jamie expects Emma to be some milksop English miss not a fiery defian.
