Such a fun read!
Oh what a fun book this was. I so enjoy watching two people who have sworn to never marry fall head over heels in love.
Donald, the Marquess of Campbell, Cam to his family and friends was raised by a tyrant of a father. Cam swore he would be the end of the Campbell line. He feared he had tainted blood and would treat his children the same as his father.
Lady Bridget MacDuff loved her father with all her heart. Upon his death Bridget was told she was to be a ward to the Marquess of Campbell. Heart broken because her father was dictating her future from the grave. She has plans for her future and the money she will get on her 23rd birthday. She has no intention of marriage, she will not be controlled and mistreated by a husband.
Bridget has no problem telling Cam what she thinks and what she has planned and why she will never marry. Cam needs to get Bridget married off before he loses all sense and kisses the intriguing and beautiful girl. The more time they spend in each other’s company the more they learn all is not as it seems and maybe trust and compromising can lead to a chance of a lifetime.
Bridget soon realizes that love can be freeing but it also can bring heartbreak if the one you love doesn’t love you as well. If Cam doesn’t do something and do it fast he will lose the one thing that has brought joy and light to his life.
You can not go wrong with one of Callie Hutton’s books!
Delightful Beginning to a New Series
When Cam is called to his estate to retrieve a package, he come face to face with Bridget Macduff, his new ward, His Rebellious Lass. He doesn’t want a ward and doesn’t know how he acquired one. Well, he’ll just get her settled and married off as quick as he can and get back to his own life. Bridget has other ideas. She does not want (or need in her view) a guardian, and she does not want to marry. No matter how determined he is; it does not get better. She wears breeches, rides astride, and can shoot and likes to hunt. What is he to do with her?
This is a lovely romantic comedy with a duty conscience and overly protective Marquess and a feisty and fiercely independent young lady. The story flows along quickly, full of fun, giggles, stolen kisses and a confused hero and heroine. There is also a vile, rather inept, villain who attempts to kidnap Bridget. Throughout the story both Cam andBridget ask one question over and over: Why did Bridget’s father not change his will when Cam’s father (the original guardian) died? Do we learn the answer? His Rebellious Lass is the first book in a new series. Scottish Hearts promises to be an entertaining and delightful series. I really enjoyed this book and happily recommend it. Looking forward to the next story.
I received an ARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley. My review is voluntary.
His Rebellious Lass is book one in Callie Hutton’s Scottish Hearts series. I adored this book. It has some truly wonderful moments. I found myself laughing out loud all through it. Lady Bridget MacDuff is a fiery Scottish lass who must marry in order to access her inheritance or wait two years to obtain it. The Marquess of Campbell is horrified to discover that he has been made legal guardian to Bridget. Over the weeks they spend together, he finds himself attracted to her. But both have vowed to never marry. I loved the bickering humorous banter between the two of them. Hutton has outdone herself with this story. I was gifted a copy of the book.
