"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."

My Thoughts:

This is a series I have truly enjoyed from the get go, but this one is definitely my favorite of the series. I loved the buildup and tension in this one and the characters were awesome.

Brandt and Sorcha were fantastic. Brandt is so easy to love and Sorcha is so fierce and I adored her. I loved how what they loved most about one another is what others saw as drawbacks. They saw one another for what they were and didn’t shy away from it. They both grew so much over the course of the book, both as a couple and individually. I just adored them together. They had fantastic banter and crazy chemistry and they just worked so well. 

I also adored the secondary characters. This one had such a great cast and I wouldn’t mind getting to know some of them better. Aisa in particular was my favorite. She is just awesome and I love her. Ronan also intrigues me greatly and I think I could really love him. 

The plot for this one was great. It had action and suspense and a great romance. The plot moved at a great pace and kept me engaged. I loved the development of the romance but I also loved the aspects outside of the romance and it was all balanced so well.

My Scot, My Surrender was a great read that really kept me engaged. It had a great cast of characters and it didn’t let me down.

  1. Fantastic banter sounds good to me! Unfortunately I didn't enjoy book one so I didn't continue with the series. It sounds like the series gets better as it goes though. I'm glad you enjoyed it, Teresa! Great review!

    Have a wonderful weekend. =)
