His Rebellious Lass by Callie Hutton

Donald, The Marquess of Campbell, is sent to his estate to pickup a package. The package being his new ward. He wants to get back to his life and sets up to marry her off the first chance he gets.

Lady Bridget wants nothing to do with marriage and wants to build a safe house for battered women. She has a problem, she is 21 and has to wait until she's 23 to get her money.

I really enjoyed this story. Callie Hutton does a marvelous job bringing our couple to HEA.

A really wonderful, lighthearted, and engaging story , which I could read again straight away .
Cam finds he has a ward at a most inconvenient time in his life, he wants no more responsibility, definitely not a young chit whose stubborn, outspoken and doesn’t want to marry , which is his sole goal as far as she’s concerned.
Bridget knows her own mind and intends to get exactly what she wants , Cam is the stubborn one from what she can tell , and no man is going to tell her to marry , or give

Review also published by The Smut Report.

Heat Factor: There is sex.

Character Chemistry: Please, tell me again how you don’t want to be attracted to each other.

Plot: Let’s put everything we can into one story.

Overall: Slather it on with a spatula. The big sort for icing sheet cakes.

I’m not sure if this was a hate to love story or a bad guy rescue story or a ruination story or a feminist crusader story. It was trying a little bit to be all the stories. By the time I got to the end, I was thinking,

Bridget, the heroine, is determined to make the world a better place by helping one abused woman at a time. In fact, her selfless dream of running a home to do just that had me loving her character from the get go. She had spunk, feistiness, and wasn’t about to let anything stand in her way, including the unexpected glitch in her deceased daddy’s will. She finds herself dumped onto the doorstep of a handsome, never plans to marry, rake reputation guardian. Unfortunately for her,

His Rebellious Lass is book one in Callie Hutton’s Scottish Hearts series. I adored this book. It has some truly wonderful moments. I found myself laughing out loud all through it. Lady Bridget MacDuff is a fiery Scottish lass who must marry in order to access her inheritance or wait two years to obtain it. The Marquess of Campbell is horrified to discover that he has been made legal guardian to Bridget. Over the weeks they spend together, he finds himself attracted to her. But both have vowed t ...more

A delightful and funny story with a fiery Scottish Lass. Bridgid has the temper to match her fiery red hair. She is determined to chart her own course. Cam is not amused at gaining a ward. He is used to all his commands being obeyed. This series has been very well written. The characters have been crafted well and the plots solidly designed.

It’s been a hot minute since I’ve read historical romance. Honestly, this was the book to get back into the genre with. I loved historical romance long before Outlander ruled both our nightstands and out TVs. It was one of the first romance books I had ever read and they were tame enough that I didn’t have to hide them too much from my classmates or dad.

That being said, this one was definitely different from the ones I read when I was younger.

Thank you to Net Galley for providing this book to me in exchange for an honest review.

This book is about a woman named Lady Bridget who becomes the Ward of Lord Campbell at the time of her father’s death. She has no intention to marry in order to inherit her fortune, and Cam has no intention of keeping her as his ward longer than necessary to secure her a husband.

I didn’t enjoy this book. I found Bridget to be foolish, and stubborn. I think the author was trying to portray a strong-willed Sco

A truly romantic marriage of convenience story.

These two are absolutely determined to avoid ever getting married, but they hadn't counted on the mercenary nature of one certain man, nor the undeniable attraction they each would feel for each other that flares to life when that certain man forces their hand. Cam and Bridget are both strong-willed, independent individuals who are, nonetheless, at the mercy of society's expectations and standards.

Lady Bridget MacDuff wants to open a house for abused women but to do it, she has to wait till she inherits her fortune. Marquess of Campbell inherits Bridget, she became his ward. He wants to marry her off asap to be rid of her. Do I have to say more? She is a red haired Scottish beauty and he is a handsome Marquess ...

I’ve always liked this author, and enjoyed this one as well. It’s the story of a Scots girl fighting to have her family’s land and title restored, though it’s presently in the possession of a Duke. Her grandfather had been reported dead, for his protection, after Culloden. I really enjoyed the bond they developed during the pursuit of the truth, and that her search came to be his, as well.
I had high hopes for this ARC. I love the guardian/ward trope and the cover is absolutely stunning. I've never read a book by this author and was hoping I'd find a new historical romance author I would come to love but I was sorely disappointed. This book comprised of everything I loathe in historical romances being written today. The Smut Review has a much better review than mine that states everything I dislike about this book so eloquently.

The beginning was so difficult to read. There's a de

His Rebellious Lass by Callie Hutton is an enjoyable historical romance. Bridget is a likable character with spunk. She hates the rules of women and that women are the property of their husbands. One of her best friends suffered at the hands of her husband and Bridget has dreams of making an impact for women. Her antics to get out of the events were funny.

Cam is hilarious. I enjoyed him from the beginning. He wants to marry off the Scottish red head so he can go back to his normal life. His lif

Put together two people who are determined to never marry and you come up with a totally delightful story. Cam returns to his country estate to find Bridget, a beautiful young woman, who tells Cam he is her guardian. From this point on and throughout the rest of the story, Cam is repeatedly shocked and surprised.

This was an easy read for me as the story flowed smoothly from scene to scene. I found the dialogue especially delightful and I fell in love with both Cam and Bridget. I really enjoyed t

A slow start for a Lord and his ward. Soon the more they disagree the more they are attracted to each other. When the nasty villain makes his move, love comes into play.
A heartbreaking look at the abuse of children and women and the power of men in a Regency marriage.

I loved story line of the book, but it did have a few inconsistencies that bothered me. The biggest was Bridget Hated town life and missed/wanted the country life. She hated spending time in the city and complained about that when she met Cam, yet the house for women was going to be located in the middle of the city and no complaints were made about that. I also wished that Bridget was able to have a hand more in the Davenport issue. Cam was great as a hero and only got better throughout the sto ...more

I did not want this book to be over! I wanted to read more of their story. It was humorous and had me laughing out loud numerous times. I love a female with spunk during a time when it wasn’t acceptable. Thank God for those courageous women who molded history. Enjoyable and easy to read and steaming passion. Book gifted to me.

This book is so much fun. One of the best I've read in a while. The characters have so much depth and complexity, they hold your attention the entire book. I literally stayed up all night to read this book. I couldn't put it down. Cam and Bridget are hilarious together at times. Cam is always there for Bridget and it makes for a beautiful story. I might add, the epilogue is the perfect ending. 💜💜💜💜💜

I have to say that it was one of those books that I started and finished in the same day and I regret absolutely nothing. It is the first book in her new Scottish Hearts series!

The best thing about this book is the understanding of domestic abuse. It's about Bridgit who wants to spend her inheritance helping women who have been abused by their husbands in Regency England. But Bridgit’s fate is managed by her guardian, Cam, who has sworn to never marry to avoid repeating the mistakes of his brutal father.

This aspect of the book has a lot of heart, but somehow this relationship between the central characters is a little arid. For me they did not come to life like the wo

I enjoyed this romance. The plot was fun and kept me entertained. Bridget, for the most part was quite likable. She was sassy and knew what she wanted and was determined to get it. Every so often though it felt like a switch was flipped and she turned into a different person. This for me was jarring and off-putting. Cam was likable but not without some issues. I loved that he was supportive of Bridget's plan. However, many of his actions and sentiments were a turn off for me. I did feel compassi ...more
