Review: All Scot And Bothered - Vilma Iris | Lifestyle Blogger

All Scot and Bothered is the second book in the stunning Devil You Know series by USA Today bestselling author Kerrigan Byrne!

They are a dangerous duke, a fierce lord, and an infamous earl—dark, bold, brave men who know exactly what they want. And there is only one woman who can bring them to their knees…

He is first and foremost—at everything. A man who’s made his own way through ruthless cunning and sheer force of will. A strong and imposing Scot who can turn on the charm but does not suffer fools. His title: Lord Chief Justice of the High Court. His name: Cassius Gerard Ramsay. His mission: To investigate the goings-on at London’s most notorious gaming hell, owned and operated by one of the most intriguing and desirable women he’s ever met.


Cecelia Teague was an orphan facing a rather dire future—until a secret benefactor from her mother’s scandalous past swept into her life. Sent to a prestigious boarding school and later to university, Cecelia believed high society was at her fingertips…Then, from out of nowhere, she became the inheritor of a gambling establishment. Now Cecelia must live two lives: one as a proper lady who finds herself undeniably drawn to Lord Ramsay and the other as a savvy gaming hell owner trying to save her business from the very same man. He has no idea she is both women…and Cecelia would like to keep it that way. But what happens when consuming passion and escalating danger threaten to reveal the truth?

All Scot And Bothered
By Kerrigan Byrne

Review: All Scot And Bothered

With the second installment of the Devil You Know series, Kerrigan Byrne delivers a passionate love story between an imposing Scot and a spirited mathematician… and it’s utterly wonderful.

In this latest, we get to know Cassius Gerard Ramsay—Lord Chief Justice of the High Court. Ramsay is brother to the Duke of Redmayne (HOW TO LOVE A DUKE IN TEN DAYS) and a man without indulgences, abiding by an unshakable moral code.

No one challenges his restraint, however, like the red-haired Cecilia Teague—a intelligent, sharp-witted woman who lives life to the fullest. She makes him want to break all his rules, but his deep mistrust of women halts his desire to pursue her.

But when Cecilia inherits a gambling hall and collides with Ramsay under the guise of The Scarlet Lady, his temper flares against the woman who runs an institution of deplorable morality, and one he fears is responsible for the disappearances of young girls.

Before too long though, both Cecilia and Ramsay uncover there is something far more sinister at play and she is squarely caught in the crosshairs. Together, they grapple with the truth of their past, their intensifying feelings and the danger that lurks in the shadows.

I devoured every page of this story. Byrne’s storytelling prowess is all-consuming with characters who are flawed, vulnerable and strong all at once. The narrative boldly explores feminist power and independence, and how it connects with one’s identity and choices—a wonderful underpinning to how the love story evolves. A thread of suspense ratchets tension towards a wholly satisfying finale in this daring and delightful story that is sure to sweep you away.
