Book review: THE SCOT BEDS HIS WIFE by Kerrigan Byrne
The Scot Beds His Wife (Victorian Rebels) - Kerrigan Byrne

 

I loved this book from the start. I have to admit that I’m an uber fan of marriage of convenience and force marriage so of course I jumped (quite literally) at the chance to read this book. However I was not very happy when I realized there were secrets involved and that the final outcome would depend on how the main characters would react to the discovery of those secrets. I just don’t like romances that start off on untruths or half truths, I just don’t. 

But the feels; THE FEELS, I tell you!! 

Samantha is an American spitfire with plenty of wit and determination, used to do whatever necessary in order to survive. When trouble arises in America she sees no other choice but to travel to Scotland. There Gavin awaits for her, and true to his rakish reputation, he will attempt anything even seduce her if that would sway her to relinquish her land to him. 

Ok, so one thing that had me laughing – and rolling my eyes- at the beginning was the fact that she would not stop admiring his good looks. It was paragraph after paragraph of her mentioning how well sculpted and how “magnificent” he was. She even called him a Celtic god! I just thought goodness, it’s this how it’s going to be? Thankfully it wasn’t. Sam proved to be no push-over. She took the reins of her new life and show no fear in the face of trouble. I specially loved that even though she was a foreigner in a new land, she easily made new friends, knew who to contact, where to go, and what to do. She was a woman with a mission and was determined to see it through. Gavin was a little on the obstinate side. Not that that was a bad thing, I mean, who can say no to a Scot’s charm, am I right? But when a man kisses a woman without asking permission first, then let’s just say I was verra, verra happy that said woman always carried her precious guns with her *happy face* I loved how Sam put him in his place every time he wanted to be all charm and temptation. 

When someone from her past attacks her, Gavin offers to marry her in order to protect her but also to gain access to her land. They do marry but their relationship was complicated to say the least, what with Gavin’s reputation, his infamous father and family, and the initial enmity between them. They want to see their nuptials as a business transaction only so they really don't want to confide each other with their dark pasts. 

As the story unravels and they get to know each other better, Sam understands why her husband has led the life of the notorious libertine and affable womanizer he’s always been. And then she wishes to tell him everything because she’s only told him bits and pieces of her life but not the entire truth. And the one time she had the chance to tell him EVERYTHING… she discloses another secret but not what he needs to hear! It was kind of frustrating, actually. And Gavin feels there is still so much in her heart that's yet to be to discovered but is afraid to ask because he believes it may have to do with him, his flaws, his past, his own desires, and AGHHHH!!! In the end so much grief would have been avoided if a hard but simple truth was told when they had the chance. 

So generally speaking, I still think this was an awesome read because despite my peculiar dislikes I thought the romantic arc hit all the right cords. All the characters were very well defined from start to finish, from the rambunctious old couple of Calybrid and Locryn, who sort of became Sam’s two right hands, and who had me laughing at their bickering and inappropriate comments, to Gavin’s own mother, who grew out of her shell with Sam and other loving character’s help. All in all it was a lovely read, which can be totally read as a standalone, and I absolutely recommend it. 

** I received this book from the author at no cost to me and I volunteered to read it; this is my honest opinion and given without any influence by the author or publisher.***

The Highlander is All That
The Highlander Is All That (Untamed Highlanders) - Sabrina York

I was invited by the publisher to read this book and I am glad that I was. I read the previous book in the series (but honestly didn't remember what happened in it) but I feel as though it is not necessary to read the previous books in order to understand what is happening.

 

This book follows sisters Anne and Elizabeth as they are sponsored by their Duke cousin this season in order to find husbands. Anne, due to a previous heartbreak, does not want to get married. Elizabeth is not happy with her suitors. Their lives turn upside down when their cousin sends two of his friends, Hamish and Ranald, in his place to protect and escort the girls.

 

I definitely enjoyed reading about Elizabeth and Hamish more than Anne and Ranald. Anne just seemed a bit too stubborn and a bit too reserved for me. I did enjoy that the story switched between the four main characters as I feel if it would have concentrated on just one of the couples then the book would have seemed too short and would have fell flat.

 

Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the galley.

6 Stars!!
The Highlander Is All That (Untamed Highlanders) - Sabrina York

Sabrina York has hit another one out of the park with The Highlander Is All That.  I'm giving this book 5 stars, only because I can't give it 6.  Ms York has delivered a well-written book. Her characters are truly amazing in this book.  Kudos to Ms York for the characters and dialog in this fun book. Buckle your seat belts for the rollercoaster ride that is Elizabeth and Hamish's story.  There is plenty of drama, action, suspense and sizzle that will hold readers hostage to their e-readers. As an added bonus, you also get the mini stories of Elizabeth's sisters woven into this story.  I loved this book from cover to cover and look forward to my next read by the talented Sabrina York.  The Highlander Is All That is book 3.5 of the Untamed Highlanders Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

 

 

I voluntarily read an Advance Reader Copy of this book that I received from NetGalley.

Review: 5/5 for When a Scot Ties the Knot (Castles Ever After #3) by Tessa Dare
When a Scot Ties the Knot - Tessa Dare

I know I’m late to the party and that there is nothing I could possible say that hasn’t already been said about this book but it was oh so good! I had the pleasure of listening the audio format and the narrator did a superb job! She nailed all the accents and gave each character its unique and distinctive voice.

 

Maddie is captivating from the beginning. Her imagination and innocence grabbed me from page one. As the story progressed and she matured with time, she only became more endearing. She is one of those girls that even though naïve she was not silly or acted as a simpleton. I suppose her “disability” –she suffered from panic attacks- only made her more endearing in my eyes. I know from experience how disabling some episodes can be and that made her a more relatable character as well.
And Logan, can we say W-O-W! Although he started as an infuriating man that pushed his way into Maddie’s life by way of blackmail he turned out to be all “mushy” inside. He was just pretending to be a hard man because of the life he’d lived and because he was afraid to love for fear of rejection. But the more he tried to be unlovable, the more Maddie (and I) fell in love with him. Because really, who wouldn’t fall in love with a man that likes reading?
Secondary characters were all a riot but also engaging. They all had their own stories to tell and contrary to other stories where too much of others overpower the plot of the main characters, in this case it just added luster to the main story.

 

I could go on and on and on about all the things I loved about this book but suffice to say that it was funny, romantic, and tug-at-your-heartstrings kind of book; the kind of book you can’t stop thinking about long after the last page was turned, or in my case the last second was played.
