    Fabulous Historical Romance

    The Scot Beds His Wife by Kerrigan Byrne is a phenomenal read. I'm more of a Regency fan, but I may now have to add Victorians to my reading list. Ms Byrne has given us a well-written book loaded with amazing, lovable characters. Gavin and Samantha's story is a twisted tale that kept me captivated from start to finish. There is plenty of drama, action, suspense, humor and spice to keep readers wrapped up in this story. I enjoyed The Scot Beds His Wife and look forward to my next book by Kerrigan Byrne. The Scot Beds His Wife is book 5 of the Victorian Rebels 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.

    One untamed heroine, one deceptively charming hero

    Samantha Masters is on the run from more than just trouble in the west. She’s running from her own actions, her own decisions, and her own demons. Gavin McKenzie isn’t running, he’s hiding in plain sight. Everything that is dark and dangerous within him is hidden behind his handsome face and his easy smile and wit. When these two come together it’s unlike anything the Scottish Highlands have ever beheld. Sam is one tough heroine with a dirty mouth and the ability to stand up for herself. She doesn’t need someone looking out for her or protecting her. She’s been doing that her whole life. Gavin has one desire and the only way to obtain it is through sharp edged woman that keeps pulling her gun on him. He should find her unappealing. He should be enraged. Instead, he’s finding her compelling and oh so tempting. It makes no sense whatsoever. This was a slower paced read but without a lot of unnecessary prose. Although Sam is not my favorite type of heroine, with her background she couldn’t be any other way and I accepted her as such. Gavin was more of the alpha hero I like and the fact that he had to keep reminding himself he simply wanted Erradale more than Sam actually made me love him all the more. He just couldn’t lie to himself regarding his feelings for her. I absolutely loved everything about the secondary characters. They added so much depth to the story while also setting the reader up for future stories. This had a great ending even though there was so much happening all at once and very quickly. I would’ve liked to have seen it expanded a bit. I have other books by this author on my wish list but this is my first time to actually read anything written by her. I’m currently making plans to check a few things off that list very soon. This is an honest review of an advanced copy provided by NetGalley St. Martin’s Press.

    Kerrigan Byrne’s Scot Beds His Wife

    From the American Wild West, Samantha Masters has taken on the identity of Scottish heiress Alison Ross. They met during a train robbery when Samantha’s husband was going to murder Alison. Sam shoots and kills her husband. Now both the gang members and law will be on her trail. But Alison thankful for Sam’s intervention and saving her life has a solution. Alison has a property in Scotland that she will have to forfeit until she lives on the property for one year. Alison persuades Sam to take on her identity and live on the property. Gavin St. James is the Earl of Thorne. He wants to break away of his notoriously, cruel family. A player with a reputation, he needs the Ross land to raise cattle and farm to be able to change his living style. He never expected Alison (Samantha) to return to her property. Now she is back and he is totally unprepared for the woman who returns. There is immediate undeniable chemistry between the two but stubbornness seems to prevail. An interesting historical Victorian fictional story with deeply filled characters filled with childhood horrors trying to break free of the past to be able to walk without baggage into unknown future. They both want to be loved for themselves but will they be able to overcome the deceitful set back life has thrown their way. A well created plot with sexual tension and a cast of well developed, colorful secondary characters. This is book # in the Victorian Rebels series. It was the first one I read. I had no trouble following the characters as the author wove the past and present together effortlessly. I volunteered to read The Scot Beds His Wife. Thanks to St Martin’s Press via NetGalley for the opportunity. My opinion is my own.

    Historical Romance

    The Scot Beds His Bride by Kerrigan Bryne Victorian Rebels #5 Brash, bold and beautiful but is the heroine believable…not in the beginning but perhaps a bit more toward the end of the book…maybe. I wanted to put this book down in the first pages and even at the halfway point because no matter how untamed the United States Wild West might have been in 1880 the heroine did not ring true to me. Raised as a Mormon would her language, attire and behavior be as they were described? At times I felt like this was the story of Annie Oakley (with a bit of Bonnie from Bonnie & Clyde) going to the Scottish Highlands incognito. I persisted in reading because I looked back and realized that the three other books I have read in this series all rated highly and my comments reminded me that I had loved the stories. So…I continued to read…and glad that I did. I never really found the story believable but did find it entertaining. AND since this is fiction first and not necessarily based on fact…I let those niggling thoughts go by the side and immersed myself in the story. The book begins with a horrific scene from Gavin’s childhood in which he is forced to watch something then experience something no child should ever encounter. His story picks up nearly a quarter of a century later. He is gorgeous, hates his family name, works part-time in a distillery, dislikes his brother, wants independence and sees his future as owner of a piece of land he will raise cattle on…land that belongs to someone else. Samantha “Sam” Masters’ story begins on a train. She saves a woman’s life by killing a man but then her life is in danger for other reasons and Alison Ross, the woman she saved, offers her identity to Sam in exchange for living on land in Scotland for a year to keep it from returning to the MacKenzie family. Needing a place to hide she takes Alison’s offer and heads to Scotland where the first persons she meets and falls into the arms of (literally) is Gavin. He wants “her” land and she won’t sell it. With two people both wanting the same land and both willing to do what it takes to keep it the tussle begins. Sam and Gavin have secrets and scars and are damaged souls but they also are more than they appear to be upon first introduction. As the reader gets to know them both better and they get to know one another more intimately the story begins to heat up. When the past arrives to interfere with what seems to be a happily ever after in the making all bets are off and the future less secure – for everyone. Ultimately I came away glad I had persevered with reading this story. I was satisfied with the ending. I still found this book, in many ways, to be unbelievable. BUT…I enjoyed it thoroughly. And, I would love to know more about Allison, Callum and…The Rook! Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for the ARC – This is my honest review. 4 Stars
