I have received a free e-copy of the book Rogue Scot by Tammy Andresen to review.
Here is the book blurb.
His heart has been turned to stone…
After the death of his twin brother, Matthew Sinclair has no room in his life for love. Especially not for a spoiled little tart who thinks she is too good for him. Lady Bridget McDougal is half English and all snob. The woman can’t even manage to say thanks when he saves her life. Nor does she express any gratitude as he changes his plans to deliver her safely home. He can’t wait to drop the little princess off and be done with her forever.
Matthew Sinclair is a heathen and a rake, a degenerate and a lout. She’d keep going but why waste her breath? He does nothing but sneer and brood and act as though it was her fault their ship wrecked on rocks and his precious schedule was interrupted. Can she help it that she nearly died as her father shipped her off like an unwanted sack to her English relatives? She will be so glad when this entire ordeal is over.
Except when another storm hits with a vengeance, she can admit one thing. She’s safest when next to Matthew Sinclair. Would she be even more protected in his arms?
Rogue Scot is the fourth story in the Brethren of Stone series which I have been enjoying reading. It is set in the Scottish highlands in the late 1700’s.
The story starts with Captain Matt Sinclair and some of his crew rowing from their ship in a storm to rescue those in distress on another ship which has hit the rocks. But Lady Bridget McDougal won’t jump as she can’t swim, so Matt has to climb aboard and carry her off the sinking ship. Although she is glad to be rescued, Bridget’s first impression of Matt is dislike, as his look reminds her of her father who hated her, whilst Matt just thinks she is ungrateful.
Matt now has a dilemma. He has a shipment to deliver but what he is going to do with all the extra passengers including Bridget and Mary. He will have to take the two women back to Bridget’s father in North Berwick. But Bridget wants to continue her journey to London where her aunt will help her find a husband.
So where do we go from their first impressions of each other? And what happens when there is another storm?
Rogue Scot is available on Amazon, currently priced at £2.28 in Kindle format. No surprise that this is yet another nice short romantic story from Tammy.

Another FAB read – one for my book shelf
yes this series is fab
I’ve never been to Scotland so I guess I don’t really have a preference on setting. I’m intrigued by the description, may give it a go. #readwithme
Always worth a try to see if you enjoy, especially as they are short reads
This sounds like an entertaining read, but not one for me!
I like them but yes not everyone’s cup of tea
Love books set in Scotland – this sounds like a good read.
Yes I’m enjoying all this series
I do like books set in Scotland. I’ve only been once but it was so gorgeous I can’t wait to go again.
Excluding business trips I’ve been to Edinburgh several times and Skye once. So much more I would like to see in Scotland
