It’s no secret that I’ve been a huge Suzan Tisdale for years. So when I was accepted as a member of her early review team, I was thrilled! Now, here’s the latest in Scottish romance, Brogan’s Promise.
Heat Level: ♥♥♥♥
Overall Rating: 6/6 Glass Slippers
Genre: Historical Scottish Romance
When we first meet Mairghread Mactavish, she’s drunk as a sunk and lamenting the loss of her family. She contemplates suicide, but knows that if she took her own life, she could be banished from heaven and would never see her husband and child again. She was once a beautiful and kind maiden who had the world at her feet, and her fall was such, her maid Gertie hatches a plan.
Gertie is the quintessential wing woman. She sees Mairghread in pain and on the cusp of being forced into marrying a terrible, brutish man. So she calls on Borgan of Clan Mackintosh to wife her up before it’s too late. You see, he’s also nursing a wounded heart after the death of his late wife. But Gertie won’t take ‘no’ for an answer and pushes the pair together “by accident” and when Brogan hears the true identity of the man Mairghread is to marry, he warms to the idea of taking a new wife, if only to save her from The Frenchman’s clutches, as he’s known for being less than kind to his wives.
What follows is a very bumpy road for the pair. Mairghread’s drinking is causing her more grief as Brogan tries to help her find her footing in their new world. He’s kind, charming, patient, and forgives Mairghread for all her faults. Luckily, his extremely lovely, and familiar, family is there to assist them. But there is only so much they can do when a dastardly villain comes to wreck everything they’ve began to build.
Overall, this is another fantastic book that’s great for a beach read, albeit a bit on the emotional side at times. You’ll love Brogan, get annoyed with Mairghread, gasp at the drama, and grin at the little bits of comedy that are peppered in through the dramatic plot.
PS, when you go to Amazon to buy Brogan’s Promise HERE, which I know you will, you’ll see some one star reviews. Don’t even think of them. Amazon messed up something along the way and this book book was sent out to many happy readers only to be shown as a few random pages. The one stars are in no way a reflection of this wonderful book and it’s amazingly talented author.
