The latest in bestselling author Vanessa Kelly’s intoxicating Clan Kendrick series shines a light on the most respectable member of the Kendrick clan—and the independent woman who stole his heart . . .
Miss Kathleen Calvert may be the daughter of an Irish aristocrat, but she has no intention of acting like one. All she desires is to return to her family’s estate to raise horses and manage her father’s magnificent gardens. But when a scandal threatens her reputation, her parents order her to a remote Scottish estate, hoping she will finally learn to behave like a proper lady. To make matters worse, her escort is a handsome Highlander who just happens to be the most boring man in all of Scotland . . .
After a youth of dangerous and wild escapades, Grant Kendrick surprised his family—and himself—by becoming a successful businessman and the most respectable Kendrick brother. But does that matter, when the beautiful and free-spirited Kathleen deems him a stodgy bore? Luckily, he gets the chance to prove her wrong when their carriage is ambushed by thieves. But it will take all his ingenuity to protect the beautiful lass who has stormed her way into his heart—and to convince her that a life with him will be a love-filled adventure . . .

The Highlander’s Irish Bride by Vanessa Kelly, is the fourth installment of Vanessa Kelly’s historical romance series Clan Kendrick.
Headstrong, Kathleen Calvert is the daughter of an Irish Baron aristocrat, caught chariot racing at dawn on Hampstead Heath. Her unconventional ways threaten to disrupt her older brothers engament, along with her reputation. Longing for her land of her youth, and struggling under London’s society oppressive conditions.
This fiery lady needs to learn restraint, aid comes to her and her family from the Duchess of Leverton. The Duchess whisk Kathleen to Scotland to visit Victoria Kendrick, who has married into the Kendrick clan. Things take a twist when Kathleen’s younger step-sister Jeannie, has taken upon herself to become a stowaway.
Graeme and Grant were twin hell raiser in their youth. Grant Kendrick is a swoon worthy, Scottish rogue. Having learned to curtail his shenanigans, he is now a successful businessman. When he meets Kathleen his interest is piqued with this feisty Irish miss.
The propulsive storyline, offering both drama and family dynamics made for a nonstop read. The chemistry and slow burn romance was tantalizing, as the two main characters overcome obstacles placed in their path. These hurdles com in the form of a drama filled step-sister, along with a villain who is set on destroying everything that Grant’s brother Graeme Kendrick, and is wife has built.
This charming and witty book will have flipping through the pages long into the night. The characters are both charismatic, and some a little frustrating. This makes for a delightful historical romantic read. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this latest edition to Clan Kendrick by Vanessa Kelly.
This book can be read as a standalone without any difficulty, or within the series.
