Review: The Bridegroom wore plaid - Grace Burrowes


His Family or His Heart -- One of Them Will Be Betrayed...
Ian MacGregor is wooing a woman who's wrong for him in every way. As the new Earl of Balfour, though, he must marry an English heiress to repair the family fortunes.

But in his intended's penniless chaperone, Augusta, Ian is finding everything he's ever wanted in a wife.

My thoughts:
Grace Burrowes has a new series out, one with sexy Scots in it, and who am I to say no to that? ;)

Ian is in need of a wife, a very rich wife. He is a good guy and all that, but to support his people he needs money. I did feel sorry for him, as we know from the start that the woman in question is sure not the one he is going to want. No, the pretty young girl has her spinster cousin Augusta with her. Ok so here I think, why go for the older spinster? Well the rich girl in question hides in her room and does not want to get married. While Augusta is near and nice. They fit so good together, they can talk, but yes that dark cloud hangs over them. He needs money. 

There is another thing in this book (besides the when when when!? They must be together!), that makes it thrilling. Augusta's uncle is a real piece of work, I just grew more and more angry with him. Grrr, you'll see, and you will hate him too.

And on top of that there are more hints of romances in this one. Yes passion afoot everywhere. Which made it fun. Whether those will get happy endings or not I will not say, cos I am evil that way ;)

Conclusion:
A good romance with a hint of suspense and mystery.

  1. Ummm all you really needed to say in this review was "sexy Scots" and I would have been sold. I love the whole premise and I'm excited it has a good mystery element to it as well!
