A Bonny Pretender is a fun, bubbly, easy to read treat. This novel takes the reader on a journey full of secrets, passion, and blossoming love. We get to explore London to Scotland, with lovely descriptions and colorful characters.
Brigid MacNaughton has grown up rough and tumble in the wilds of Scotland. Brigid travels to London for a season to appease her mother. Brigid does well hiding her true nature, acting the role of proper and demure debutante. Frank, Lord Raines has had to deal with a tremendous deception from his late beloved mother and is learning to live with a lie while trying to discover more about his true family. Growing up with a loveless, cruel father, Frank yearns for a loving wife and family. Frank and Brigid meet and the sparks are instantaneous, but they are both holding back. The couple must trust that their burgeoning love can overcome the misdirections and omissions.
Brigid and Frank are both interesting, energetic characters. Brigid’s passion and big personality compliments Frank’s quiet and reserved nature. It is love at first sight, the physical and emotional connection between the couple was magnetic. The plot moved well and was easy to follow. This book was a fast, light read that left me happy. I enjoyed Frank’s journey from being disappointed and alone to gaining family and love. A Bonny Pretender is the third book in A MacNaughton Castle Romance. I loved the integration of the English and Scottish ways. If you are looking for a happy escape, pick up this book, it will make you smile!
I voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this book through Netgalley and the publisher. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
