Review: Kissed by a Scottish Rogue by Samantha Grace


DISCLAIMER #1: This story is part of a collection of stories from a number of best selling authors. I have decided instead of reviewing them all at once which may be confusing to some of my readers, I am dedicating eight days to these amazing authors and their stories. 

From Goodreads.com:  His Mother Insists He Needs a Wife. 

Fergus McTaggart, Aldmist Fell’s land steward, has no time for wife hunting. Any day his employer's sisters will be arriving at the Scottish castle for a long overdue reunion. Fergus is determined to make their stay memorable, but all anyone is likely to recall are the loud rows between him and his employer’s cheeky paid companion.

She Insists He Needs a Good Knock to the Head. 
Edith Gallagher has been charged with watching over her employer’s youngest sister while the family winters in Scotland, but the stubborn land steward interferes at every turn. Eventually, she and the Scot call a truce for the sisters’ sakes only to discover their passionate battles are masking hidden desires.

My Rating: 5 stars out of 5

  These characters were absolutely fantastic. I adored watching Fergus and Edith go from sniping at each other at every turn, to cautious friends, to more. There was definitely a tension between these two that was not only palpable, but thoroughly enjoyable as well. 

One of the things that really stood out to me with this novel is the fact that these two characters - at first glance - couldn't seem more ill-suited to each other. Despite their mutual respect for their employers, and their love for the youngest sister - they come from entirely different backgrounds and upbringings. Edith in particular came from a background that is not often discussed - so to see how she overcame the odds she was given was remarkable. 

Their story didn't feel rushed as so many short stories often do, however I felt like I experienced the full journey with these two - although I would have loved to get more backstory on the others mentioned in this story.


DISCLAIMER #2: I received a complimentary copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review. This has not affected my review in any way. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are 100% my own.
