Oh That Scottish Brogue!
The MacLarens are a very tight knit family, Yet Brodie MacLaren went against the grain when he became the local sheriff instead of following the rest of his family with farming. When he became sheriff, he thought he'd only be dealing with drunks, an occasional theft or mischievous prank, saloon brawls, and cattle rustling. He sure didn't think he'd ever be dealing with Maggie King, the lovely young woman who is accused of killing her husband. While his thoughts about the law, justice, and guilt have always been clear cut and dry, Maggie now has him rethinking that philosophy. His clear cut and dry way of thinking and handling the law has just become muddled, thanks to one Maggie King, thus making his growing attraction to her an impossible situation. Or has it?
I really enjoyed these two characters. I really admired Maggie because of the strong person that she was! As for Brodie, all he had to do was open his mouth and cut loose with that Scottish brogue and the man was totally swoon worthy. What more could you ask for?
Shirleen Davies is one of my favorite authors for historical romances, and with Brodie's Gamble she has once again reminded me why she's one of my favorites.
