Review: Betting the Scot by Jennifer Trethewey

Declan Sinclair is a Highlander who believes his dreams never lie. When he spots Caya at a public house, he knows instantly she is the woman in his dreams—his future wife. Though her brother had promised never to gamble again, he engages Declan in a card game—and the prize is the lovely Caya.

Caya Pendarvis has no time for childish things like dreams or fairy-tales or love. She’s the sacrificial lamb on her way to the far north of Scotland to wed a wealthy merchant in exchange for settling her brother’s gambling debts.

Winning at cards is one of the many things Declan Sinclair does well. Unfortunately, the ability to court a woman—a talent he lacks—is the only skill he desperately needs to win Caya’s heart.

It's a great story, which starts with a dream and ends with it coming true. I quite enjoyed it, it's entertaining and thrilling. I loved the story as well as the characters. Also I thing the ending was just perfect.

Declan's dreams often come true. So when he dreams about his wife he just starts preparing to get married soon. Then quite by chance he met the woman of his dreams, however, things get complicated because of her brother and their circumstances but maybe things will work out for them.

Caya is tired of taking care of her brother so when a handsome Scot offers his help she is more than willing to take it. She will finally get a chance to have someone who takes care of her. Although, she does not trust him entirely but she is willing to bet on him.

I think this book is perfect for historical fiction lovers. It's well-written and keeps you intrigued.
P.S. I received a complementary copy of this book.
