Paige’s Review – The Scot Beds His Wife (Victorian Rebels #5) by Kerrigan Byrne

Historical Romances aren’t my usual genre but this wasn’t your usual historical romance. ~ Paige, Guilty Pleasures 

Blurb:
They’re rebels, scoundrels, and blackguards—dark, dashing men on the wrong side of the law. But for the women who love them, a hint of danger only makes the heart beat faster.

Gavin St. James, Earl of Thorne, is a notorious Highlander and an unrelenting Lothario who uses his slightly menacing charm to get what he wants—including too many women married to other men. But now, Gavin wants to put his shady past behind him…more or less. When a fiery lass who is the heiress to the land he wishes to possess drops into his lap, he sees a perfectly delicious opportunity…

A marriage most convenient

Samantha Masters has come back to Scotland, in a pair of trousers, and with a whole world of dangerous secrets from her time spent in the Wild West trailing behind her. Her only hope of protection is to marry—and to do so quickly. 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…

I truly enjoyed The Scot beds His Wife. I found the booK to be an interesting dynamic between the past and the future.

Gavin, The Earl of Thorne , was indoctrinated in hate and abuse at a young age. He knew he was a better man and vowed to make a new start for him and his mother. He’s been successful but to be completely removed from his father he needs something from his neighbor.

Political hierarchy is still prevalent in Scotland but Samantha has a different set of rules. She’s a women whose faces challenges and adversity . She may be a but cunning but she had to be.

It took me a bit to see these two as a couple and feel any connection but that changed when they decided to work together. Once they realized they could count on each other they were a strong pair.

The storyline was interesting and kept me entertained throughout. I found it difficult to put down as I needed to known what happened to this couple and the characters surrounding them.

Based on last chapters and the epilogue a few of my favorite characters from this story will be getting their own book.
