I just adored it.
Bridget and Cam, short for Campbell have their faults but they are both compassionate and loving characters.
Bridget had not the usual upbringing, she is more a hoyden than a perfect demure lady, she voices her opinions and refuses to fall under the thumb of a man. She has a grand project and plans for her future that does not involve a man.
Why this is war when her assigned guardian decides to marry her off as expediently as possible to wash his hands of her.
None expected the sizzle chemistry which awakens when they are together.
Cam has made the same oath than Bridget, years ago, to never marry as a revenge for his abusive father and for fear to become the same cruel father his has been.
I confess I did not really understood his choice as he is a very kind and caring man always finding a way to help the most vulnerable, supporting charities and parliament bills that will help those in needs.
Because of their own vows to avoid the marriage trap, they spent the whole tale running away from the institution and the other while being drawn to another at the same time.
With their last misunderstanding, I was very angry at Cam for doubting Bridget and not trusting her, I would have liked a bit more groveling on his side as he wounded and blackmailed her to do his bidding.
But it is also good when you react at the protagonists actions, good or bad, it means the author did a great job to bring them alive.
A big fat 5 stars for this wonderful story of understanding and acceptance.
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 and Bridget 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.
Somewhere around the halfway mark, though, the story starts to veer a bit off the rails. Bridget and Cam are of course starting to feel drawn to each other--to be expected, because we all knew from the first sentence of the blurb this was going, right?--but the exploration of their initial attraction feels more clunky than natural. (I feel sparks! Oh no! Oh, wait, no sparks this time--phew. I'm good. I refuse to be attracted to him/her! I have a plan. Oh, dear--were those sparks again???) Then there's the fact that even though Bridget's one life goal since her friend died a battered woman has been to start a shelter, she has essentially made zero plans for it beyond "buy a house, help women, move to the country once said house is operating smoothly." She doesn't even understand budgeting, we find out later...? (We never do find out how on earth they're going to keep the home--which every woman in the part of town they're looking at buildings in seem to know to future purpose of--is going to be kept a secret from all of the men the women there are supposed to be protected from.) At one point Cam and Bridget are given a baby for its own protection--they give it to the nursemaid in Cam's sister's nursery, and from that point on she gets mentioned...maybe twice?
Then there's a kidnapping! A scandal! A rushed marriage! A absolutely unbelievable big misunderstanding that made me want to smack Cam upside the head (I'm sorry, a much more grovelly grovel was in order for that than what Bridget actually gets)...and eventually, an HEA--but by that time I was feeling more than a little whiplash-ish. Maybe if Ms. Hutton had attempted a bit less here I would have enjoyed it more?
His Rebellious Lass is the first book in a new series, though I did get the impression that it might be loosely connected to earlier books (Cam's friends' stories, maybe?) This one isn't ever going to be my favorite book from this author, but I am interested in seeing where else she will go with this series.
