So I didn’t really mince words about how I felt about The Duke, but when I read the synopsis for The Scot Beds His Wife I was so on board with its story.

Other than Gavin’s unattractive attitude towards the Demon Highlander, aka Liam, and anyone who mentioned the Mackenzie name, he quickly entered my favorites along with Dorian, Christopher, and Liam. Don’t get me wrong, I understood what his issue was with his brothers, and the bad blood that comes from the Mackenzie name, I just wished that he was able to rise above it and not allow it to become a hinderance to him. Heck, Kerrigan Byrne went into detail in the prologue, but because she went into the same detail for Liam’s story your view of Liam won’t change but you will lament about the gap that was placed between Gavin and him.

Samantha was the type of heroine I love to read about. Her inner strength and no nonsense attitude made her the perfect match for Gavin. Their interactions are some of the best I’ve encountered, that I can remember, in all my reading life.

When things came to a head between Gavin’s background, or present response to his background, and Samatha’s past, I found myself getting choked up. I knew things were going to get so bad that something drastic would have to take place in order to work all the kinks out.

The Scot Beds His Wife was so good that I’m entertaining thoughts of a re-read becasue it’s been a minute since I’ve enjoyed a historical romance story in its entirety.

About Kerrigan Byrne

Kerrigan has done many things to pay the bills, from law enforcement to belly dance instructor. Now she’s finally able to have the career she’d decided upon at thirteen when she announced to her very skeptical family that she was going to “grow up to be a romance novelist.” Whether she’s writing about Celtic Druids, Victorian bad boys, or brash Irish FBI Agents, Kerrigan uses her borderline-obsessive passion for history, her extensive Celtic ancestry, and her love of Shakespeare in almost every story.

  • This sounds wonderful. Will it work on its own Leona? I love the setting and strong heroine.

    • In a sense, but you will really be confused if you don’t at least read The Highlander

  • I haven’t read this author, Leona, but you have me curious for sure. Samantha sounds like she’s my kind of heroine as well and I’m very intrigued by Gavin…and Liam. 😉
