Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Perennial New York Times bestselling author Catherine Coulter gifts readers with a spectacular surprise, a fourth volume in her popular Brides trilogy. Tysen Sherbrooke, youngest of those sexy Sherbrooke brothers, is a widowed vicar, a single father of three who displays none of the wild oats his brothers possess in spades. When Tysen discovers that he has inherited a Scottish castle and the title of Baron Barthwick, little does he realize just how much his austere life will change. Upon arriving at his new holdings, Tysen encounters hostile townspeople who hate the new English baron simply because he's not Scottish; he also meets lovely, fiery-haired Mary Rose Fordyce, known as the local bastard, who is trying desperately to keep her unscrupulous guardian from bartering away her virginity. Under Tysen's protective eye, Mary Rose makes his sons and precocious daughter smile--and also behave. More importantly, she makes him smile, too. In fact, Mary Rose makes Tysen do--and feel--a lot of things he has never done or felt before. Coulter's clever, conversational style and ready wit in The Scottish Bride will delight and amuse fans as they relish this unexpected treat! --Alison Trinkle --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Publishers Weekly

Coulter completes her quartet of Regency-set historical romances (The Sherbrooke Bride, etc.) about the Sherbrooke family with a refreshing twist. In contrast to the rakish men featured in the three preceding books, the hero here, Tysen Sherbrooke, is a dour vicar and a widower with three children who arrives in Scotland after inheriting a barony and a castle. With admirable bravado, he rescues Mary Rose Fordyce from the clutches of a local man who will do anything, including rape, to force her into marriage with him. Tysen is outraged at this turn of events, and is surprised as well to discover he has feelings for Mary Rose, feelings that don't conform to his piousness. Unlike many romances where the heroine reforms a rake, here the heroine brings chaotic light into the ordered life of a prudish and seemingly humorless hero. The sheer number of characters in this finale is staggering, but loyal fans will be thrilled to note that many of the protagonists from Coulter's earlier installments are included in the cast. While there are some inconsistencies in character, particularly involving Mary Rose's mother, Coulter's rich development of Tysen and Mary Rose more than compensate.

This story is the fourth and last in the Sherbrooke Bride series.
Lilly Rabalais
She goes into in somewhat, but I personally would have liked a bit more.
tregatt
Meggie also did a very good job in adding sense of humor to the story.

This is by far my favorite Bride book. I loved how Tysen and Mary Rose came together. They came together through love and respect. Tysen goes from stern to relaxed to stern then to relaxed again. It made his character believable especially all the pressures he was under. Mary Rose was so nice to read about, she wasn't a scared out of her mind person. She knew what had to be done and got it done. They came to love each other and when they married Tysen didn't have to resort to rape to have her. Bravo!!! I respect and love him for that and his moral/ethics of how to treat a person. Meggie is absolutely a kind and devout child. She wasn't smart-alecky or annoying. She truly cared for her father didn't want him hurt. Her brothers Max and Leo were awesome too. They instantly took to their new mother with little hesitation. I don't care what anyone else has said of this book, I really enjoyed it because it was a true romance. There was no show of domination from Tysen and Mary Rose was without fear of him because of it. Truly to me a great read.

OK. So you always here that sequels are never quite as good as the originals, but Coulter has proved that theory wrong before... what happened? As the fourth book in the Bride Trilogy, I was looking forward to the usual clever dialog and catchy story line Coulter provides in most of her books. I waited and waited but it never got going. Tysen and Mary Rose are nice people but there is no story in that! Neither one is very witty, in fact, their personalities are really weak. The best parts of the book involved Tysen's three outrageous children. Most of Coulter's books I read at one time, I physically cannot put her books down once I get started. This one took me three days to read. I don't regret reading it, it was great to hear from Douglas, Alex, Ryder, Sophie, Colin, and Sinjun. I hope that readers who have never picked up a Coulter book will not choose this as their first. For those who have read her books before you are probably like me in that you can't help but read her newest release.

Whenever I buy something from Amazon I always check the customer reviews as I have found them very helpful. That's why I was so surprised to see some of the reviews for this book that were so negative - a waste of time, etc. What do these readers expect? This is not Pulitzer Prize winning fiction. These books are what I call "bodice busters" and they're meant to be fun. That's exactly what they are. I've read all the heavy books I want to and still do on occasion. But mostly, when I read a novel, I want to be entertained and that's exactly what Catherine Coulter does. So for my money the book was well worth it. It passed the time, kept me interested and it was total escape. Bravo Ms. Coulter, keep em coming!

It was great to finally read Tysen's story and to read more about the great Sherbrooke family.
Tysen, despite his sexy Sherbrooke looks, is a vicar. His wife has passed away and he is raising three children. He is content with his life when he learns that he has inherited a Scottish castle and the title of Baron Barthwick. Being the responsible man that he is, he departs for Scotland not knowing that he's about to completely change his life.
I thought this book was great to read. I loved seeing Tysen finally getting in touch with his Sherbrooke blood and learning to enjoy life. His daughter Meggie is magnificant. What a great addition to the story. I'd love to read a story about Meggie and the rest of the Sherbrooke children.
I really enjoyed reading more about the other Sherbrooke's, Douglas and Alex, Ryder and Sophie, and Sinjun and Colin. I love the way this family gets together to solve a problem.
I'd recommend this book to anyone.

I was so looking forward to reading the last in the BRIDES series, The Scottish Bride. I especially enjoyed the first and third Bride books (about Douglas and Alex & Colin and Sinjun). This book was in my opinion, just dull. It had nothing to do with his being a vicar. It was, as another reviewer put it, very difficult to "connect" to the characters Mary Rose or Tysen. I just did not come away feeling like I knew them at all, her other BRIDE books were much, much better. I read on the back cover of this book that Miss Coulter said this was her favorite book in the BRIDE series. I guess she is seeing something which I am not! I recommend the other BRIDE books by this author as well as anything by Lisa Kleypas, Julia London, Julia Quinn and Kat Martin.

I want to start by confessing that I really wanted to like this book. I loved the Bride series, and I was thrilled to discover that Coulter had writtn a book about Tyson. At the same time, I had apprehensions about what type of character the sanctimonius and pious younger brother would turn out to be. My worries were not allayed by further reading, Tyson has changed since the earlier books but his character was too loosely drawn in this book. I did not find any of the other characters in this book interesting, nor was the mystery very intriguing. In summary, Coulter should have quit while she was ahead.
