Tricked by Mysty McPartland

Riddled with guilt, Greyson has only one option to save his clan from his despicable relatives and that is to trick his cousins betrothed into marriage. He swears an oath that he would keep his hands of her and set her free when the fight is over. What he never plans on was to share his bed with her each night and fight the hunger to have her in his arms.

Reviewer: Dolce Amore
Laird Greyson McBain tricks Freel McCoy, his cousin's betrothed, into marriage. It's the only way of saving his clan from his cousin and uncle. He promises he will let her go after he gets rid of them, but they fall in love.

This book should be a wonderful story to read, but it wasn’t. I finished it so I could write a fair review but it was painful.

There was little historical details… vague clothes description and nothing more.

The writer tried to give action and vibrancy to the dialogue but she failed, instead creating a boring and absurd story. The story line is deceptive, simulated, and artificial, Ms. Mysty McPartland’s style is non-existent, and she sets the story from the point of view of almost every character; which left me dizzy, confused, and with a headache. The characters are marionettes with no coherence, consistency, or depth so that none of them are believable. And as if that wasn't enough, we have incoherent situations, like this one:
When a large group rode into the clearing, his eyes searched for the woman he was about to trick, and take as his wife… Perhaps a few well-chosen words would calm everyone down, and her escort would leave peacefully. “I am the McBain and have come to escort my betrothed the rest of the journey. Your men can return home.”
“Mistress, ye betrothed is waiting for ye in the clearing just up ahead.” … Finally, entering the clearing, with her heart pounding, she quickly scanned the immediate area.
Maybe the writer should think more in creating a believable story than writing a dozen scenes with no substance. Don’t waste your money or your time on it. Stay away, 2 stars.
