See our hero Gavin Earl of Thorne he wears a mask to hide his darkness Maybe we’re given this murky picture because Gavin has pushed his darkness so far behind the mask that even he doesn’t see it clearly anyHis mask is the smirky smirk of a profligate rake Gavin sleeps around A LOT This unfortunately is not an endearing characteristic to me Even when we find out why he is the way he is and what led him to be that way I still struggled to see past it He throws it in your face talks about it openly and wants you to turn away in disgust Because if you don’t there might be a connection Connections mean feelings and emotions Gavin doesn’t want to feel or connectAgain I am faced with a deceitful heroine I wanted to hate her but I just couldn’t bring myself to do it While we don’t “see” her suffering we do see her strength and courage that’s grown from her suffering Sam almost gives you the impression that she’s one of the boys She wears pants rides astride swears like a trooper and outshoots most men I don’t think she is trying to be one of the boys she just happens to do those things The pants because they’re practical Astride because it’s safer and easier than side saddle Swears like a trooper because well I don’t know about you but sometimes a swear word is the only way to express something passionately The out shooting because she wants to live and if you’re better than the opposition holding a gun or you can’t outrun a beast best to practice until you are the bestSam is a very complicated character She’s worked hard since she was little escaped a bad situation been led astray and made a snap decision that changed her life Her new life includes moving countries and finally finding a place where she can settle and live her life in peace Unfortunately her peace is a wee bit far off when the most beautiful man she’s ever seen tries to steal her peaceI’ll be brutally honest The Scot Beds His Wife took a wee while for me to warm up to As I mentioned before Gavin’s reputation does not show him in his best light Sam holds her secrets too close to her heart and they’re exposed before she can protect herself It's a steamy read with Gavin's previous experience coming to good useI kept waiting for the dark It was like there was an axe hovering over me waiting for me to relax so that it could attack Every page turned was going to be the one when things would go wrong I waited and waited and waited Towards the end I started panicking How were we going to resolve everything that’s still up in the air? When were the secrets going to come out? This is one of those stories that ends with a BANG CRASH and KABOOM Friends and enemies collide with some very interesting information coming to lightFor a little while I thought this was going to be the first book in the series that I didn’t like but I should have trusted that Ms Byrne would deliver the goods Happy smiles and hearts aflutter with an ending just the way I like itJust a warning though there is A LOT of swearing and I mean A LOT Didn't worry me too much and actually made me chuckle because it was so unexpected Stacey is Sassy received an advanced copy of this story The copy provided is not the final copy and may be subject to edits and changes mobi ´ The Scot Beds His Wife ✓ Kerrigan Byrne

Kerrigan Byrne ✓ The Scot Beds His Wife epub In the Wild West trailing behind her Her only hope of protection is to marry and to do so uickly Gavin is only too willing to provide that service for someone he finds so disturbingly irresistible But even as danger approaches what begins as a scandalous proposition slowly turns into an all consuming passion And Gavin discovers that he will do whatever is necessary to keep the woman he has claimed as his own This started out greatWe have a totally traumatized Gavin St James the prologue is a bit brutal and then we have Sam I immediately loved her She is such a breath of fresh air in a historical romance She is pretending to be someone else but she has so much fight in her and goes against all the norms with her less than delicate sensibilities I love her frank manner and that she doesn’t swoon at the first Duke to catch her in is arms In the early stages I thought this would be one of my favorite HRs everGavin is so discombobulated by Sam he just isn’t sure what to do I mean the woman wore britches and it seems like seeing the definition of a woman’s legs sends all the blood to the wrong locations and makes it incredibly hard to think Then there is also the dilemma that she keeps shooting in his general direction Sam is not some naïve twit and isn’t going to fall for anything that he is dishing out “I’ve had enemies before” Her pistol remained locked level with his heart “And you know what I’ve learned Lord Thorne?” He was beginning to hate the way she said his name “That it’s those closest to you that you have to beware of” she continued “Along with those looking to be your friend when they have no cause but their own” But then a trope pops up and Sam makes some choices and turns into a character that I really struggle with It made me really upset with Sam and after that I struggled a little with the story In the end it all worked out like it normally does but this trope made Sam’s choices seem desperate and see turned from this strong woman who could take on the world to a desperate woman full of secrets and trickeryThere are some bright shining funny moments in the story that did make me laugh out loud The couple that works on the land were hilarious and their dialogue with Sam cracked me up than once Also Gavin’s brother and he are on shaky ground and so the wedding vows had some extra panache to them as well “What about ye lass? Knowing what ye do about the Lord Thorne’s infamous value—or lack thereof—for wedding vows do ye Alison Ross take this man to be yer lawful husband? To have and to hold from this day until his interest wanes for better or likely worse for richer or until he suanders yer fortune in syphilis—pardon me—sickness and in health until his death blessedly parts ye?” BrothersThis isn’t my favorite of the Victorian Rebels That still is held by The Highwayman but it did get me excited for the next book in the series involving a bastard Pirate with A Dragon Tattoo On to the next book it seems
