    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

    I Loved It.

    Gavin St.James , the Earl of Thorne has been working all his life to break away from the nightmare that is his family. By claiming the abandoned lands next door he will be able to put the name behind him forever. Samantha Masters has been granted a new start in life by a woman she met in a train robbery. The price of the new life is just to keep the Ross family lands from falling to the enemy. She is a brave and hardworking woman so that should be ready for her. Our hero has hidden his pain behind his handsome smile. Not many know the true man, not even himself. This is part of a series, but easily read as a stand alone. If like me you have read the others in the series you will recognize some of the scenes that affected the whole family. It is an emotional story with tears as well as laughs. Our very arrogant hero learns not to underestimate a determined woman. A wonderful story, I loved it.

    Beautifully Captivating!

    Oh how I love historical Scottish romance stories and this one is just so captivating from the beginning to the end. As with all of her books, the story pulls you in, leaves you a little breathless, and keeps you in its grasp until the end, not wanting to come up for air. Gavin St.James Earl of Thorne had seen and experienced terror and cruelty as a child by his father that left scars, not only on his body, but also his mind and heart. He promised that he would not be like his father or like a Mackenzie, ever, and it was that promise that led him to want to purchase the estate next to Inverthorne Keep, to be rid of the Mackenzie hold on him. Samantha Masters squeezed the trigger and shot her husband between his eyes, the woman in his grasp she reached for before she fell to the ground. She had only met Alison Ross twenty minutes ago, but she clung to her as she was the most precious soul in the world. That morning she had been the irate, disillusioned wife of a charming and dangerous man. A unwilling member of the outlaw Master’s gang. This afternoon she had been the new acquaintance and confident to Alison Ross talking about their childhoods spent on cattle ranches. What had she done? Nobody was suppose to die on this job and now she would probably be hanged. When these two cross paths as Samantha poses as Alison, when she gets off the train at Strathcarron Station, in Scotland, their attraction is shockingly captivating. But, Alison is not willing to give up the land that Gavin is so forcefully trying to get from her. Especially after her friend has been so kind to let her flee to, and stay on her property, as long as she wants to stay. She will need to make the most of her situation especially with a bounty on her head and her husband’s brothers out for possible revenge and may be after her. But the attraction between the two is hard for Gavin to ignore, and what better way to get what he wants but to marry in to it. But it will take danger and a lot more, for Alison to agree to his terms. Alison has more secrets than Gavin can even imagine. But will he find out to late to save his own heart? You will need to read this to find out. These two are incredibly sweet together and I loved their chemistry. I was expecting a much more rough around the edges type of man, but who I got was so incredibly kind and generous. I totally fell for Gavin and so will you. Received an ARC through the publisher via NetGalley and voluntarily wrote an honest review.
