Summary

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.

Great episode to this series

Loved this, some of the reviews are quite scathing, yes there is a lot of swearing but I loved the fiery pluck of Sam/Alison/Bonny, so many leading ladies in these historical romances are (especially this series) are just too 'nice'; i really liked Sam's can do brash survival character. The dynamic between Gavin and Bonny was fantastic, as were the supporting characters

Narrated well with the American accent.

Great feed into the next book.

Good story and narration

I can't say I loved this book from the start, because I didn't. The H/H were fighting all the time, all through the first half of the book. Sam was too much, she was the one that fought with Gavin most of the time. he tried to pacify things but she was relentless. In fact she grew too tiresome, annoyingly so. But half way through it became much better. I still recommend this book though as the second half was brilliant. And I would listen to it again. And the narrator was great as always.

lovely story.... wonderful narration.

thank you Derek for bringing the charecters alive... I loved your brough and making Gavin a likeable hero... as for Sam ... did not like very much her charecter dwindling between strong filthy mouth American and a ninny wife...however the story line was wonderful and great to see Liam back with his brotherly growl and affection.

Another "MacKenzie" Rebel to swoon over

The Scot Beds His Wife was/is another exciting book in the Victorian Rebels series. There were a bit too many swear words in the beginning of the story, however, it added to the creation of the characters. Regardless, I love this series, and this book. I can't wait for the next book in the series. (I hope there will be another book in this series). I'm hoping the "Rooke" will be another MacKenzie issue, and hopefully we'll see him in the next book. :)

I listened to the audio version of this book, via Audibles, and the performance by Derek Perkins was superior. His voice sounds perfect for all the MacKenzie men.

Thanks, Ms. Byrnes for writing another awesome story, keep them coming.

This one fell short.

All of the other books in the series where good the first few great. This one fell short. Have a women of any class cussing like a sailor every other sentence was a huge downer and the whole plot being pregnant with someone else’s baby not very appealing either. It was about a 3.5 start. Gavin was sexy and the past appearances of hero’s and heroines helped boost the rating but it just could not save the whole Wild West meets the highlands plot. Didn’t care for it. However, I will read the next because the other ones where very good.

OMG I love Gavin and Sam! HOT HOT HOT

The youngest Mackenzie brother is now 36 years old and finds himself in a property war mess with a feisty young American lass. She is an imposter with past... and it doesn't take long before the sparks are flying!

I love Derek Perkins when he talks SEX. And there's plenty of it here. The author doesn't hold back on her language when it comes to cursing and explicit carnal bliss. Chapter 23 OMG.

This was my favorite of all the books in this series. I think the title is not appropriate and the teenage crush of a boy on the cover is soooo wrong!

It's a keeper in my library and very worth the credit.

Love 💜📚💜

Another amazing addition to one of my favorite series. I loved the sassy/brave Sam & Gavin was just perfect. I love how these characters are so deeply wounded but can still love so fiercely. I liked seeing Ian & Mena ( The Highlander) as they are my favorite couple to date. Excited to see if "Rook" gets a storey next . He is fascinating. Derek Perkins narration was great as always.

Gotta love those Scots!

Absolutely loved this story! My first time using audible. So it was even better to be able to listen to it! Kerrigan just gets better and better! Absolutely adore this lady!

Samantha/Allison is my sister from another mister! We are so alike. I really loved her. Gavin is intriguing. But, I will definitely have to side with Sam!
