As a fan of historical novels, I downloaded this novel as it was in the sale. Didn't pay much attention to the description!
I should have done. After wading through the characters names, ( had to read them twice) before I knew who was who, the book romps on at quite a pace.
I love the way the author combines modern language in her characters thoughts and actions and is not afraid to use the occasional expletive when the need arises.
A sensual book, not smutty,the love scenes are described in just as much detail as required without being overly explicit, leaving just enough for the readers imagination.
At times, I did get fed up with the Nasty Baron and hoped he had fallen down the mountain and met a sticky end within the first two chapters. Alas this is not the case.
A bit, draw out and long winded at times, with all the machinations of who will marry who? Plus the legalities of marriages of convenience, the term ' need of coin' I felt was over used.
Not too concerned about this novel being totally historically correct. Most of the male characters are very engaging, the female characters less so, Augusta and Julia being the most mentioned and fun!
I enjoyed most of this book so much I have now downloaded a second novel by the same author.

I found this book just too neat and tidy. Three couples, happily paired up - not just romantically but also financially - was a bit too much for me. Also, you can see the ending coming a mile off. Sorry, Ms Burrowes - but this one didn't work for me.

Grace Burrowes, I love your books and have all the Windham family so far. The Bridegroom Wore Plaid is wonderful. All the characters are so real with their various uncertainties. Ian MacGregor needs to marry a wealthy bride to safeguard the future of his clan. His 'intended' Eugenia is less than enthusiastic about the match but must, on the insistence of her bully of a father, marry a title and this is her last chance... Her impoverished cousin Augusta has been brought along as a chaperone but even her dowdy dress doesn't stop Ian's instant attraction. Drawn to one another knowing that they have no future is heartbreaking. As well as this intrigue, Eugenia and her brother and their widowed aunt seem to have a fascination for Ian's two brothers and sister. Eugenia's father seems to have an agenda all of his own. The neighbours are pretty fascinating too. The MacGregor land abuts Balmoral, a favourite place for Queen Victoria and Prince Albert and their family. I had to read the whole book in one go and then, of course, I want to know if Grace is going to write anymore similar books. Well are you Grace? Don't keep us in suspense.

A good GB! Ian as the head of the family must marry money but he has nothing in common with the proposed heiress and a lot more with her chaperon! But there is much more going on than even he imagines and Grace Barrow's weaves her brand of magic to keep you coming back for more!

This is the second book by Grace Burrowes that I have read and thoroughly enjoyed. In it, we meet Ian MacGregor, Earl Balfour and his family - his brothers Gil and Connor, his widowed sister Mary Frances and her daughter, Flora. Ian might be an earl, but the family is poor and needs to open their estate to guests every summer in order to make enough money to see them through the year. Ian needs to marry money, and the story begins with him meeting his prospective bride and her family from the train as they are to be summer guests.

It quickly becomes apparent, both to Ian and to the reader, that the lady in question is very reluctant to marry him; not only that, she is resistant to getting to know him, despite his attempts to draw her out and his reassurances that he will be a kind and loyal husband.

While he is attempting to court Eugenia (known as Genie), Ian forms a friendship with Augusta Merrick, Genie's cousin who has been brought along to act as a second chaperone, along with their aunt. Augusta is the classic "poor relation", living in a run-down house with her cat, keeping chickens and tending to her garden.
This friendship quickly develops into something more - even though both Ian and Augusta know that there is no hope for anything lasting between them as Ian needs to marry for money and Augusta is poor.

The thing I absolutely loved about this book was the way in which the relationship unfolded gradually and with such tenderness. Ian is decent and honourable, determined to do his best for his family, and yet he cannot help his growing attraction to Augusta. And Augusta understands what drives him - she recognises that he needs to be loved for himself and not for the title Genie's father is determined to buy.

This is the first of Ms Burrowes' books I've read. I enjoyed it very much. Ms Burrowes love of all things Scottish comes through loud and clear. I found it delightful, knowledgeable, romantic and well researched. I will definitely be reading more. My only criticism is the use of the word gotten (very American) if not for that I would have awarded 5 stars for a sweet, romantic book which entertained me from page 1.
