Rogue Scot by Tammy Andresen

I have received a free e-copy of the book Rogue Scot by Tammy Andresen to review.

Rogue Scot by Tammy Andresen

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.

Kilted Sin by Tammy Andresen

I have received a free e-copy of the book Kilted Sin by Tammy Andresen to review.

Kilted Sin by Tammy Andresen

Here is the book blurb.

All’s fair in love and war. Now they just have to decide which this is…

Laird William Sinclair is a good man. Like all his brothers he helps those around him, takes care of the less fortunate. So why does Gemma McClaren think she can take advantage of his kind nature and just ride off? He’s good but he isn’t a saint. And he’s certainly not above teaching that tricky little imp a lesson she’ll never forget.

Gemma McLaren has learned the hard way that men are scum. She won’t ever fall prey to one again. Yet, even she feels a little guilty when she steals a handsome laird’s money and horse. He hadn’t actually done a thing to harm her…yet. Her guilt quickly evaporates when he tracks her down with two small children in tow and demands she repay him by becoming nanny to the children. If she doesn’t, he’ll report her to the authorities.

What choice does she have? Except Gemma hasn’t the first clue how to care for children or handle a very large and angry laird. And honestly, she didn’t’ come to the Highlands to play with wee bairns no matter how cute. Nor does she want to notice how her heartbeat quickens every time Will steps into the room. She’s got a debt to settle and a life to reclaim.

Kilted Sin is the third story in the Brethren of Stone series which I have been reading. It is set in the Scottish highlands in the late 1700’s. And I have to say, this is the first one which I feel Tammy can actually justify her usual style of cover design showing Laird William’s bare torso.

This is because it starts with Will stripping off, about to take a swim in the loch when a strange female turns up cheekily calling out “I didn’t expect to see the moon so early in the day”. He manages to grab his shirt as she approaches nearer. She is very saucy, mesmerising him with her words and touch, before she pushes him backwards into the loch. By the time he has the water out of his eyes, he sees her riding away on his horse, holding onto his trousers, which contained all the money he had left. Personally I was surprised it was trousers, not a kilt. All that remains for modesty to walk home, is a sopping wet shirt and his boots.

So that was our introduction to Gemma McLaren, a widow who has come to Aberdeen from Kirkaldy in order to claim her inheritance from her late husband Sean who had abandoned her 3 years ago.

Meanwhile Will arrives home to find 2 very young orphans, Fiona and Ewan have been dropped at his door. They don’t want him to send them back to the orphanage. What a day!

So how will things turn out, when Will next encounters thief Gemma? What will happen to Fiona and Ewan? And what is Gemma’s inheritance?

Kilted Sin is available on Amazon, currently priced at £2.31 in Kindle format. Yet another nice short romantic story from Tammy.

Wicked Laird by Tammy Andresen

I have received a free e-copy of the book Wicked Laird by Tammy Andresen to review.

Wicked Laird by Tammy Andresen

Here is the book blurb.

Laird Blair Sinclair doesn’t need help from any man. Though the second son in the Alban line, he is as strong as his brother Stone and even more determined to build a shipping empire with his own two hands. He doesn’t have time for anything or anyone else. But when he rescue’s a beautiful woman, he can’t deny that Elle needs him. Nor can he rid himself of the feeling that he wants to need her too.

Elspith McIntre learned the hard way to only rely on herself. Which is why it’s infuriating that she requires help from the arrogant new laird. It’s even more maddening that she can’t get rid of him. She wants no man and especially not a powerful one who could decide to crush her at any moment. She will not make that mistake again no matter how tempting the thought of leaning against his powerful chest.

After the death of their parents, six siblings unite around their eldest brother, Stone. They consider blood a binding oath and vow to protect one another. They all must face their own demons as they find love and their places in the world.

This is the second story in the Brethren of Stone series of which I have previously read the prequel, The Duke’s Scottish Lass and book one Scottish Devil. It is set in the Scottish highlands in the late 1700’s.

It begins with Blair Sinclair, the new laird and brother of the Earl of Alban spotting someone in difficulty in the sea. He rushes down to the beach and swims out to the boat, rescuing someone in the nick of time, just as the boat sinks. It turns out to be Elle Mcintyre, who had borrowed the boat from her neighbour to go fishing to catch something for dinner for her 12 year old brother Ailean and herself, as they had run out of money.

Elle wonders how she is going to pay back her neighbour for the loss of the boat and what will Blair want in recompense. She knows nothing comes free from her previous experience with nasty landlord Malcolm McKenzie. Even with her injured ankle, she tries to cook a meal in Blair’s cottage whilst he fetches Ailean and other boys to help drag the boat up at low tide.

How will things turn out, especially with Malcolm wreaking havoc everywhere?

Wicked Laird is available on Amazon, currently priced at £3.06 in Kindle format. As per usual, Tammy has lived up to expectation, with this nice short romantic story.

Scottish Devil by Tammy Andresen

I have received a free e-copy of the book Scottish Devil by Tammy Andresen to review.

Scottish Devil by Tammy Andresen

Here is the book blurb.

One family united by loss, driven to find love…

Known as the devil, Stone Sinclair, Earl of Alban, is carved of rock, hard and uncompromising. He bends for no man. A fiery lass with golden hair and a will as strong as his own? Surrender has never sounded sweeter.

Eliza McLaren detests all lairds. They are selfish, self-serving, arrogant men who only care for themselves and build their fortunes on the backs of their people. And Lord Stone Alban is the worst of the lot. When her father attempts to make a match between them, Eliza pledges to never give herself to a man like Stone, no matter how tempting his lips or how strong his arms. He isn’t the only one carved of stone.

After the death of their parents, six siblings unite around their eldest brother, Stone. They consider blood a binding oath and vow to protect one another. They all must face their own demons as they find love and their places in the world.

This is the first story in the Brethren of Stone series of which I have previously read the prequel, The Duke’s Scottish Lass. It is set in the Scottish highlands in 1780.

It starts with Stone Sinclair and his siblings at their parents funeral, who died trying to rescue miners from a collapse at the mine. Stone is now the new lord of Alban. He welcomes the family solicitor Allister McLaren and his daughter Eliza, who have arrived from Perth just too late for the burial, having had their own bereavement. However Eliza has been listening to rumour and thinks of Stone as the devil and tells her father so. She assumes Stone only cares for himself and not his tenants.

Stone of course, has heard all the rumours and feels deeply hurt about being labelled as the devil by the rumour-mongers. Meanwhile Eliza starts to get to know Stone and realises how she was mistaken as she observes him providing financial aid to the widows of the dead miners.

Will Eliza’s words come back to haunt her?

Scottish Devil is available on Amazon, currently priced at £3.08 in Kindle format. Yet again, Tammy has delivered a nice short romantic story, ideal when you want a light read between thrillers.

The Duke’s Scottish Lass by Tammy Andresen

I have received a free e-copy of the book The Duke’s Scottish Lass by Tammy Andresen to review.

The Duke's Scottish Lass by Tammy Andresen

Here is the book blurb.

Lady Delia Alban absolutely cannot marry the handsome rake, Roderick Maddox, fourth Duke of Manchester, despite her brother Stone’s insistence she do just that. Though he has long reformed his ways, he steals her breath away every time their eyes meet and she simply doesn’t deserve that kind of happiness. Not after the death of her brother, Reginald. She must pay penance, because, if not for her, he would still be alive.

Roderick Maddox, has known for years he would marry Delia. Before Reginald’s death, he made a promise to his friend, not only would he care for Reginald’s sister, but he would reform himself into the type of man Delia deserved. He never expected Delia to ignite such passion or to be so resistant to him. Nor did he realize he held the secret about Reginald’s death that could crush their budding feelings forever.

Six siblings unite after the death of their parents around their eldest brother, Stone. They consider blood to be a binding oath and vow to protect one another. They all must face their own demons as they find love and their places in the world.

This story was formerly published as Taming a Lady Wolf. Delia’s brother’s decided their stories needed to be told as well. This is now the prequel novella to the series, Brethren of Stone.

This book is set in 1795 with a prologue back in 1790 when Roderick, Duke of Manchester catches 13 year old Lady Delia Alban on his ship as she jumps from a crumbling cliff face. However, her brother Reginald, Roderick’s best friend dies that day falling onto the rocks below. Five years later, Roderick returns with the intention of marrying Lady Delia, but she has no intention of marrying someone so handsome. Nor does she know that, he was her rescuer that fateful day, for which she blames herself for Reginald’s death.

But when another suitor, the undesirable Earl of Sunderland turns up, will the tables turn? And was Delia really to blame for Reginald’s death?

The Duke’s Scottish Lass is available on Amazon, currently priced at 99p in Kindle format. This is a nice short romantic story, when you want a light read. I always look forward to reading Tammy’s books interspersed between something heavier.

The Earl’s Forsaken Bride by Tammy Andresen

I have received a free e-copy of the book The Earl’s Forsaken Bride by Tammy Andresen to review.

The Earl's Forsaken Bride by Tammy Andresen

Here is the book blurb.

Lord Callum Blackwood does not want a silly empty headed lass for a wife. He’s seen too much darkness, for such a woman. Nor does he have the patience or softness to woo a blushing bride. He needs a woman that can step into the role of wife and fill his obligation for an heir.

Lady Elizabeth has been ruined by her father’s gambling debts and is now a lowly laundress. But her fate cannot hide her beauty, her strength, or the lady that still lives within. And while she takes pride in her work, her ability to care for herself in a world that forces women to rely on men, she cannot deny that Callum could help her. Especially when her aunt falls gravely ill.

Neither wants love, but nor can they deny the attraction that sparks between them. Will those feelings, forge a bond or break their tentative agreement apart?

This is the sixth book in A Laird To Love series, of which I have previously read all the other titles. I had assumed that the series would have drawn to a natural conclusion with the fifth title, but no Tammy is back with yet another tale. This time with a more tenuous connection to the previous books, but an enjoyable read none the less.

Lady Elizabeth Chase has been taken in by her spinster aunt when her father committed suicide to escape going to the debtors prison. They survive by doing laundry but now Aunt Mary is ill.

She is surprised to return home and find a fine carriage outside their cottage. Lord Callum Blackwood has been brought here by her distant cousin Ewan, to ask her to marry him.

Why? What is his motive? Elizabeth values her independence. But what about Aunt Mary? Callum summons a doctor who diagnoses pleurisy.

Callum seems serious about his proposition. Will Elizabeth agree? He even cooks them all soup in the cottage and mends the roof himself.

The Earl’s Forsaken Bride is available on Amazon, currently priced at £2.17 in Kindle format. The sixth title in A Laird To Love series, but works well as a stand-alone read. Another nice romantic predictable light-hearted quick read, so ideal summer reading.

My Laird’s Seduction by Tammy Andresen

I have received a free e-copy of the book My Laird’s Seduction by Tammy Andresen to review.

My Laird's Seduction by Tammy Andresen

Here is the book blurb.

Lady Ainsley McDougal has long been the bell of the ball. But there is one beau she cannot tame, which, of course, is her favorite kind. She’ll catch her man yet.

Laird James McPherson is a Highland Laird, an English Earl, a soldier of the Indian War, and a privateer for the British Navy simply for the joy of it. He’ll be damned before one tiny blond spitfire of a Scottish lass brings him to his knees and ties him down in wedlock. But even he can’t deny that he’s tempted…

This is the fourth book in A Laird To Love series, of which I have previously read and reviewed all the earlier titles including the introductory Christmas novella. Here are the links to my reviews of titles one, two and three.

Lady Ainsley and her mother have gone to stay with her cousin Clarissa and Ewan for the birth of baby Eva. But apart from time spent with the gorgeous baby, Ainsley is bored, so she is very interested when two eligible bachelors arrive, Lord Callum Tate and Laird James McPherson. Lord Callum is very friendly but she only has eyes for the rude arrogant Laird James. Meanwhile he considers her a vain peacock. But when she calls him James, rather than by his formal title, he becomes a different man and kisses her. She almost forgets how much she hates him. But he is so inconsistent, the next day avoiding her. Will they sort out their differences or not?

My Laird’s Seduction is available on Amazon, currently priced at £2.89 in Kindle format. The fourth title in A Laird To Love series, but also works fine as a stand-alone read. As always with Tammy’s books, this is a nice romantic easy read to curl up with, in-between some thrillers.

Entrapping A Lord’s Love by Tammy Andresen

I have received a free e-copy of the book Entrapping A Lord’s Love by Tammy Andresen to review.

Entrapping A Lord's Love by Tammy Andresen

Here is the book blurb.

Lady Caroline Crawley’s fall from polite society was a foregone conclusion. Her father had joined the army to escape his debts. Debts he left hanging around his daughter’s neck like a noose. She had few options and thieving seemed as good as any. But she never expected to fall in love with one of her marks. The handsome and mysterious Lord Thomas Fairfield has her dreaming of a future that will never be hers.

Some might think that Tom and his three brothers are blessed. He knows, however, that their fate is a duty at best and most likely, a curse. His brothers have sent him to London to complete a mission. Not only is Caroline Crawley distracting him from his task, but she may just be part of the forces that are trying to thwart him.

This is the third book in the Fairfield Fairy Tales series, set in the Regency period. I haven’t read any of the other titles but this worked well as a stand-alone read.

It is based on the Fairy Tale: A Master Thief which is not a tale that I am familiar with, so after I had finished reading this book, I looked it up on Wikipedia.

Lady Caroline Crawley has lived in a London theatre with her cousin Crimson, Lord Wainscroft since she was orphaned. The theatre was the only asset left after they cleared her father’s debts. And even though everyone in so Society flocks to the theatre each night, every penny they earn is spent. So Crimson forces Caroline to pick pockets to help make ends meet.

Crimson’s latest target for Caroline is Viscount Tom Abernathy, Lord Fairfield, who is building an orphanage next-door to the theatre, in a property that Crimson had hoped to expand into, if he ever raised sufficient funds. And Crimson believes that Tom possesses a magical item.

Meanwhile Tom has a secret and he worries that Caroline and Crimson might know.

Caroline invites Tom to watch the show with her, but they have an instant connection. Will she pick his pocket or not? And what will Crimson do?

Entrapping A Lord’s Love is available on Amazon, currently priced at £2.15 in Kindle format. The third title in the Fairfield Fairy Tales series. A rather far-fetched plot but still a nice romantic read, when you just want something light-hearted in-between reading thrillers.

A Scot’s Surrender by Tammy Andresen

I have received a free e-copy of the book A Scot’s Surrender by Tammy Andresen to review.

A Scots Surrender by Tammy Andresen

Here is the book blurb.

An innocent debutante and a rogue…

Miss Agnes Burton dreams of a gentleman, a knight in shining armor that sweeps her off her feet. Laird Keiran McKenna is nothing like her dreams. A rogue and sworn bachelor, she finds him irritating, when he isn’t causing her breathless excitement. The more time she spends with him, the more the line between knight and rogue blurs. Not that it matters, because he’d never love her in return would he?

This is the third book in A Laird To Love series, of which I have previously read and reviewed the introductory Christmas novella, the first book and the second.

This historical Scottish romance is set in 1852. Circumstances force Agnes to spend the night alone with Laird Keiran McKenna but he refuses to even kiss her. Eight months later they meet again and she apologises for trying to kiss him. But what is each of them really thinking? Agnes thinks Keiran is a rogue since a gentleman would surely have given the room up for a lady. Whilst Keiran believes he tried to be a gentleman by resisting and sleeping on the floor. Both are lusting after the other but hiding their feelings as Agnes wants a gentleman, whilst meanwhile Keiran feels too dark from the war for someone as pure as Agnes. So what will ensue?

A Scot’s Surrender is available on Amazon, currently priced at £2.89 in Kindle format. The third title in A Laird To Love series, but works well as a stand-alone read. Another nice romantic predictable light-hearted read to curl up with, in-between some thrillers.

Heart of a Highlander by Tammy Andresen

I have received a free e-copy of the book Heart of a Highlander by Tammy Andresen to review.

Heart of a Highlander by Tammy Andresen

Here is the book blurb.

Will a spark between two childhood friends light into a flame…

Lady Fiona McDougal embodies the wild spirit of Scotland, untamed and free. If only her future could be the same, but she is bound by duty to marry well for the sake of the title. As her heart and necessity battle only one answer arrises time and again, Colin Campbell. But he is the one man who refuses to court her.

Colin has loved Fiona for as long as he can remember. Her fiery spirit and matching hair, fill him with a warmth that no other woman can match. But Colin’s father has long made him promise that he will choose a wife for reasons other than love.

This is the second book in A Laird To Love series, of which I have previously read and reviewed the introductory Christmas novella and the first book.

This historical Scottish romance begins with a flashback to 1836 when 5 year old Colin is  told by his father not to marry for love and passion as it will break his heart, but to marry someone strong and capable. His father’s first wife had died in childbirth and his father has never got over this, so his father frequently reiterates this advice over the years.

Colin and his best friend Fiona grow up and their relationship changes with a kiss. Colin disappears and Fiona is left wondering whether she loves or hates him. Meanwhile Fiona’s father the Earl of Ravencraig takes Fiona to a summit of lairds to find a husband. But she is interested in nobody but Colin, who also happens to be there, although she is  trying to ignore him as she is still angry with him.

Colin is very jealous if any of the other men touch Fiona, but he continually squashes his feelings, remembering his father’s advice. Fiona bluntly asks him if he is going to ask for her hand, which he knows he cannot do.

Lots of confusion follows. Do they get together or not?

Heart of a Highlander is available on Amazon, currently priced at £2.24 in Kindle format. The second title in A Laird To Love series. Another nice romantic read, when you just want something easy-going and light-hearted in-between some thrillers.
