    2. I have been reading many books by popular romance novel author Teresa Medeiros, but I have never read a romance novel quite like this one! “The Devil Wears Plaid,” not to be confused with “The Devil Wears Prada,” is Teresa Medeiros’ newest historical romance novel and it has enough adventure, drama, shocking secrets and sizzling romance that have overtaken all the other romance novels with style!Emmaline Marlowe (Emma for short) was about to be married to the laird of the Hepburn clan [...]

    3. 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, kidnapping the bride, holding her for ransomyou get the picture. But you know, 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 new.The beginning cracked me up because our heroine Emmaline is being married off to some old goat [...]

    4. The back blurb for this book is somewhat misleading. First off it’s not a medieval Highlander romance but more of regency kind of historical with Highlanders. You’re not really told either way in the book summary but I felt that the tone leant more to the medieval side than the regency side so this was a little confusing to set the story at the beginning. Apart from that, yes you’ve got your sexy, dangerous Highlander who abducts the proper, duty bound English bride of his arch nemesis fro [...]

    5. This was the first book that I have read by Teresa Medeiros and I was thoroughly impressed and entertained! 5 big stars!!!!What could be better than a story that takes place in the Highlands? How about a story where the hero, who happens to be a verra sexy Highlander, kidnaps the heroine of the story!!! I LOVE a romance with a kidnapping! And this one was very well written with lots of witty dialogue and steamy lovin'!So if you've never read a Teresa Medeiros book, then grab this one up and read [...]

    6. Wasn't hating it, but wasn't seeing any compelling reason to keep 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.

    7. Recap: Emmaline Marlowe, an English miss, is forced through family & financial difficulties to wed the decrepit, old laird of Clan Hepburn. On her wedding day, she is kidnapped straight from the altar by Jamie Sinclair, heartbreaker and lawbreaker of the Highlands. So begins their wild & tumultuous adventures.My Thoughts:Originally I had issues with our heroine, Emma. She was fully prepared to condemn Jamie based on his past history & her naive devotion to her betrothed. Because of t [...]

    8. *heavy sigh* Beautiful storyThanks to Greta, my vision of Hepburn is forever tainted. I will now see Mr. Burns from the Simpsons because that is really the perfect description of the decrepit old man our heroine Emma must marry to keep her family out of the poorhouse. Imagine a young, duty-bound, girl standing at the altar as her wedding vows are about to be recited. She is staring at the old geezer and looking at his false teeth. What thoughts go through her mind? Bet she never saw this coming: [...]

    9. I know 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 [...]

    10. Welps, I've fallen for another highlander. (shhh! Don't tell my husband!)Set to marry a grody old dude because her pops is a drunk and squandered away their moneys Emma is in a tragic state of affairs. Before the "I do's" are said and her breath reeks of denture cream Emma at the ripe old of 21 is swept away on a bucking stallion by a hunk-a-monk broody of a highlander named Jamie.Mmmmmmm. Jamie ;)Now, I personally cheered here. Sure sure sure. this is uber bad for Emma's family because once she [...]

    11. I'm not sure exactly how much I actually liked this one, so I'm going it 2.5 stars, somewhere between "I liked it" and "It was OK".What I liked about it:- The melodramatic church-storming-bride-snatching by men-in-kilts bit was actually pretty good. It's a pretty cheesy idea, but it's well-written and I didn't once think "Oh, for God's sake!"- The way the Scottish accent is written in. It's incredibly well-done.- The hero - sigh. He's just wonderful. If only there really were men in kilts like h [...]

    12. All I can say is WOW this author really knows how to grab your attention!!!Usually when I read a book it often takes a few chapters before I really get into what is going on with the characters not so with this book.The heroine of the book young Emmaline Marlowe, is standing at the alter about to be wed to an 80 yr old Laird to save her family from financial ruin. With second thoughts running thru her head about the wedding, but knowing she has no choice, she is about to say her vows when the ab [...]

    13. This is a nice little Highland romance from Teresa Medeiros. Nothing too serious but not quite in the "light hearted" category either. Emmaline is abducted from the altar by her betrothed's sworn enemy in an ongoing attempt to right a wrong between feuding families. Admittedly Emmaline isn't exactly despondent, her husband-to-be is in his 80s, but she's marrying to save the family from destitution so she feels a somewhat misguided mission to escape and find her "beloved" and set things right. Ja [...]

    14. Another delicious Scottish romance to tuck away for a later rereading. In The Devil Wears Plaid, the hero becomes "the devil you can't live with, but can't live without." He is, of course, scorching hot! Who can resist a devilishly handsome, sexually potent man with the name "Sin?" :-) What I loved the most about this romance was the heroine and her pluckiness, her emotional strength, and her ability to challenge this strong, viral hero at every turn. As strong as the heroine was, however, I sti [...]

    15. Wowis book was amazing! I love Jamie and Emma's story. He comes riding on his horse up the aisle of the church to snatch Emma away in the middle of her wedding(her groom was a creepy old laird). What a beginning. As the story moves along Jamie and Emma start to care for one another. Their love story is so sweet.Medeiros did a fantastic job of weaving the love story together with the mysteries in this book. She surprised me twice in the story. That's always a good thing to have things pop up in t [...]

    16. This book is a fun historical romance. Light and fun and full of roguish romance. It starts out in the typical way. Man steals woman to make another suffer, man finds woman surprisingly attractive, woman finds man surprisingly attractive, both find themselves in each others arms and win over the bad man she was about to be married. Now, yes, I did just basically tell you the story, but that formula is as old as perhaps the castle under contention. :) What I liked about this story is that the wom [...]

    17. Serviceable. That's the only word I can think of to describe this book (and I suppose that's damning with faint praise). The characters, plot, mystery, etc. All serviceable. They weren't bad or amazing. Just bleh. I found that I really liked the peripheral characters (eg: Ian Hepburn) far more than the main two protagonists. I think I'm just not a fan of Medeiros' writing. Too bad since she's written so many books!

    18. Did not finish. Just couldn't get into this one. Didn't particularly like the heroine or the hero (I got to about page 100) and the plot was completely ridiculous. I can't enjoy a book if all I'm thinking about is the implausibility of the setting, the plot and the characters' behaviour.

    19. My review contains spoilers and they're mostly my thoughts as I went with the book. This one's got 3 parts.Sorry ladies but it was quite cold around here and I couldn't stop whining about that! :pWell, the plot is interesting but not new. And as always, anything Scottish me likey. Ah, Jamie! I like Emma, wanna see how things go between them. There were funny moments here and there, some of Emma musings about her bridegroom, some between Jamie and his men (lord those conversations! lmao), even s [...]

    20. I have to admit, usually this is not a book I would have scooped up to read. So why did I really do so this time? To be brutally honest with you all, I picked it up because I was trying to complete a reading challenge of reading a book that had something in the title to imply color. Silly reason right? I am very glad I did pick it up though. It may have been outside my normal reading comfort box, but it was a great joy to read and I just loved it. Who knew! Emma is such a headstrong woman and su [...]

    21. 3.5 Stars! This was my June Pick-It-For-Me over in Western and Medieval Romance Lovers, but it had been on my TBR for awhile. Medeiros was one of my early first romance authors I ever followed, and I know I can always count on her books to be good reads. This one was no different. I really enjoyed the characters. Emma was likable, and easy to relate to, and Jamie was a nice sexy take-charge Highlander (who in my mind looked something like a cross between Hugh Jackman and Joe Manganiello ^^). I l [...]

    24. Rating: 4.5/5Reading The Devil Wears Plaid reminded me of why I first fell in love with historical romances - slipping away to another time and place for a thrilling adventure with a seductive hero and spirited heroine. The story begins with seventeen year old Emma waiting nervously at the alter to marry her ancient bridegroom, the earl, Laird Hepburn. Always the dutiful daughter, she's left little choice in the matter, as Hepburn has paid Emma's father enough to settle his gambling debts in exc [...]

    26. There is nothing better than a nice classic historical romance with a sexy Scot. Come on, you know exactly what I am talking about. They are the classic historical romance character because really, how many sane women can resist that sexy baroque. This book is definitely no exception, the Scot is sexy, the English miss is full of fire and they absolutely perfect for each other.As I said before a Highland romance is the quintessential comfort read. It has everything you could possibly want in a r [...]

    28. The Devil Wears Plaid is my first Teresa Medeiros book. I loved this book. It was romantic, funny, warm and sexy. This is definitely one of the best romance books I've read in a while reminiscent of Julie Garwood's historical romance writing style. I found myself reading deliberately, and not rushing through the story. I wanted to prolong the end.Jamie Sinclair and Emmaline Marlowe are definitely my favorite hero and heroine. Jamie is strong, good looking and sexy. Jamie has a Scottish brogue, g [...]
