PerennialNew 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 inThe Scottish Bride will delight and amuse fans as they relish this unexpected treat!--Alison Trinkle
Is the series on the Sherbrooks over? In this "last" novel on the Sherbrooke siblings, Catherine Coulter does a wonderful job on relating the romance between the "priggish" vicar, Tysen, and the scottish lass, Mary Rose. As always, Coulter's writing is elegant and vivid. But to my utter suprise, the love story is sweet and humbling. In my opinion, which is one of many, I found this story to be one of Coulter's best; maybe not in the sense of excitement and intrigue by the reader. Coulter takes a secondary character, whom I'm sure most thought would never be featured in a book all of his own, and breathed new life and reason into him. It was an insightful read and a joy to me to know that any character I might run across in the pages of one of her books, may one day have a story all of their own! But is this the end of Sherbrookes? In one of the chapters where Ryder is featured, you will notice a musing he has about his daughter and her feelings of Oliver...or Jeremy...he wonders? Hummm....another great Sherbrooke tale in the making. I sure hope so. The only thing I feel is missing from this story is the appearance of the horrid Sherbrooke mother. Where is she? I would like to know how Coulter would have her feel about the "new" Tysen. That would have been a hoot. But all in all, it was a great read! Please don't let the many reviews placed here sway you. If you are a Coulter fan, this is a must read!
Bloody he** , Why did I waste my money on this?! Don't mistake me. I love Coutler books. I have a huge collection of them, my favorite of course being The Sherbrooke Bride. I loved the Bride series, and the following Mad Jack and Courtship, but this book left me high and dry. I have never felt the need to skim a Coulter book, but unfortunately this book did not hold my interest. Tyson is a nice character. Mary Rose is a nice character. But they are both so boring at times I wanted to scream! It seemed to be that Coulter once she gave these characters their traits, she wasn't sure what she wanted to do with them. The only reason why I even finished this book was to read about the other Sherbrookes, especially my honey Douglas. My suggestion to all of those interested, wait until you can check it out from your local library.MOLASSES IN WINTER SIMPLY PUT, WORDS FAIL ME AS I STRIVE TO PURVEY THE SENSE OF FLOW I GET FROM THIS BOOK; AKIND TO MOLASSES IN THE WINTER.A BIT MORE HEAT TO THE MIX WOULD HAVE WET MY PALATE FOR THIS MUDANE LITERARY EXPERIENC.
