The Review Quadrant: The Scott Beds His Wife by. Kerrigan Byrne

Hello to all of my beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast nerd universe! I am back with another book review!

The Scott Beds His Wife by. Kerrigan Byrne

Disclaimer: This review is based on thoughts and opinions of the lead writer of this blog. Please respect her thoughts.

This book continues the Victorian Rebels series where we meet Gavin St. James, the Earl of Thorn and a notorious highlander, always gets what he wants including women who are married to other men and wants to put his past behind him until he meets a woman with a fiery spirit who is claiming the land he wants for the longest time.

Samantha Masters comes back to Scotland in a pair of trousers along with secrets of her time being in the Wild West and wants to leave that behind, especially murdering her husband who is a part of a dangerous family. When she meets Gavin their time spent together not only brings them closer but also a marriage that keeps a scandal under wraps once the land she came to claim burns to ashes.

Thoughts: I tried to find the other books in this series but the only one I can find on Bookshare are the one before this one, The Duke, this one, and the next one which I will review next. It ticks me off when Bookshare doesn’t have all of the books in a series for me to read because I have to read it in order to understand it. But I do notice how these books can be read as standalone novels since the characters we meet are individual people. I did find this book very good since I did get to see how someone that shows up unexpectedly can feel like they don’t fit in with the land they are supposed to be a part of. I can see that a lot with Samantha since she is the spunky tomboy that prefers to wear pants rather than poofy skirts and bodices during the 1800s when that was the fashion at the time. Plus, her attitude was very different from the prim and proper due to how she always lived in the Wild West. I always pictured her accent taking on the southern type and did hear it throughout the book and I can see how Gavin became interested in her. I could see why he preferred someone different over anyone else even though some secrets did arise about him throughout the book even about his brother and his father since the Prologue kind of gave us a glimpse of his family from the past which made it interesting. I did like how the idea of marrying for land came into being but I felt like it didn’t matter throughout the book because I felt like these two were meant for each other even if they had secrets they want to leave behind. It is all about love and it did shine through with this book.

I do love Samantha’s character because she was fiery and she didn’t want to give up on anything especially when she kept a promise to a friend of hers but almost lost it as she fell for Gavin. She did show how she did things back in America to take care of animals and even wanted to help Gavin’s mother despite being injured when Erendale burned down. She still found ways of being able to keep herself strong throughout the book even when things got harder and her secrets were starting to unravel and wanted to hold onto Gavin while she did it.

Rating: 4.5 Star Paw Prints Out of 5! I am knocking off five points from this because I felt like Gavin’s back story was kind of missing in a way. Yes, we got to hear more about Samantha’s back story but I felt like I wanted to know more about Gavin especially leading up to the end. What I mean is that with the last book, The Duke, I got both characters’ back story as in Imogen trying to work as a nurse and a bar maid to help pay for her dad’s debts and meeting a duke who lost his family and later on she becomes a Countess out of a crime and the Duke was sick while being tortured during a war and they end up together after so long. Here I felt like I just saw all of Sam’s story and not enough of Gavin’s except that his brother is a Highlander that hates his guts. I will be reading the next one and see how that goes. I do love Samantha and Gavin as a couple in this book and I did like how they stayed together even in the end when the secret is finally out. Hoping with the next one my review will be better.

That is it for this review guys! I will include the link to the book on Amazon and hope you check it out! Hoping to get Ipsy March 2019 up and my review of Omni Fandom Expo up soon because I’ve been kind of ill lately. I know, it sucks being sick! Until next time!
