Publisher’s Description:

 

Lady Aisla Montgomery has a perfectly tolerable marriage…as long as her husband stays in Scotland and she in Paris. But now, years later, she wants only one thing—a divorce.

Niall Stuart Maclaren, the rugged Laird of Tarbendale rues the day he met his beautiful, conniving wife. Though the thought of her incites a bitter and biting fury, no other woman has ever stirred his blood as hotly. When Aisla returns to Scotland to sever ties, Niall agrees on one condition—one week with him for every year of desertion. Six weeks as his wife in his castle…in his bed…in exchange for her freedom.

 

My Thoughts:

This is another seamlessly co-authored book by this amazing pair of novelists.
I have read the entire first series and highly recommend all of these author’s books. They need not be read in any particular order and are all able to be read as a standalone although there are some characters that do carry over.
This is book #1 of the new series.
I had previously been introduced to our hero in one of the other books and was glad that he got his own story to begin this new series.
Our heroine was so briefly mentioned before that it was more like an oh yeah!
Both characters were well thought out and make for an intriguing second chance romance.
I gave this book 4.5 of 5.0 stars for storyline and character development and a sensual rating of 2.75 of 5.0 flames. The intimacy isn’t nonexistent but more of an after thought in this book.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book from the publisher to read and review. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Publisher’s Description:

SCOTLAND, 1819.

Brandt Montgomery Pierce is a bastard—and proud of it. Raised by the Duke of Bradburne, Brandt enjoys an uncommon life of privilege. Despite the mystery surrounding his birth, he has wealth and opportunity, and wants nothing more. Especially not a wife.

Lady Sorcha Maclaren, the fiery and scarred daughter of Laird Maclaren, the Duke of Dunrannoch, is desperate to avoid marriage to a loathsome marquess at any cost…even if it means risking a kiss with a handsome stranger at a Scottish border festival.

But after an innocent kiss turns into a scandalously public embrace, Sorcha and Brandt get more than they bargained for—a swift trip to the altar. When danger chases them into the Highlands, and deceit threatens to tear them apart, their only hope will be to surrender…to each other.

Each book in the Lords of Essex series is STANDALONE

  1. My Rogue, My Ruin
  2. My Darling, My Disaster

My Thoughts:

Reviewed at NetGalley Jan. 18, 2018

I have enjoyed this entire series. It’s hard to believe that two authors were involved in the writing of this book or the other three co-authored by this pair.
Sorcha has lead most of her life scarred by a wolf attack. In fact she can’t remember when her countenance wasn’t so.
Brandt thinks himself born a bastard. He has come to Scotland in search of the mother he never knew.
Brandt meets Sorcha when he stops to watch a sword fight between a young lad and a seasoned warrior. Only the young lad is a lass and after sharing a kiss with her he finds himself wed to the lady.
How will this forced union end and what secrets will Brandt discover while trying to deliver his unwanted bride to her sister?
I gave this book 4.75 of 5.0 stars for storyline and character development and a sensual rating of 4 of 5 flames.
Our hero spends an inordinate amount of time making sure he doesn’t take his temporary wife’s virginity.
I received a complimentary digital copy of this book via NetGalley to read and review. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.
