This Story Is Flirty

Publisher's Summary

She was a on a quest of discovery. He was on a quest for revenge. Together they would discover a second chance.

Brenna Cameron travels from Scotland after losing someone she loves in search of family she didn't know existed. Alone now in the world, Brenna makes an arduous journey, following the trail of discovery to Briarwood, Montana. Here she meets Ethan Gallagher, and the rest of the Gallagher clan. Only with their help is she able to discover lost family, heal old wounds and embark on a treacherous confrontation with a man who destroyed her family.

As head of the Gallagher clan, Ethan has more than enough to occupy his thoughts and time-he didn't need the complication of Brenna Cameron and he certainly didn't need the trouble that came with her. Ethan takes on the unwanted duty of self-appointed protector to the headstrong Scot, only to discover there is such a thing as second chances and more to life than revenge.

Love this series!

Where does Gallagher's Pride rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I read the series before they started to come out as audiobooks and I love them. It's easily one of my favorite audiobooks. The narrator is perfect for the story with his smooth and rich voice.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I love them but Ethan and Brenna tie for my favorite in this book. I really felt like I was a part of their lives and I really like the way the characters are written and narrated.

Which scene was your favorite?

I don't have one favorite, but I love when Brenna first arrives in Briarwood.

If you could take any character from Gallagher's Pride out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Ethan. He's super sexy and the kind of man I'd like to know.

Any additional comments?

Great series. I look forward to listening to book two.

Historical romance that seems timeless!

This is a book that takes place in the 1800's, partially in Scotland and partially in Montana. Brenna travels from Scotland to Montana after the death of her parents to find family members she had not previously known existed. She meets Ethan Gallagher fresh off the stagecoach and is taken in by his family. She stays with them throughout her search, which turns dangerous and she and Ethan develop strong feelings for each other. Ethan has been hurt by a woman before and is hesitant to give his heart to Brenna.
The story contains several plot twists that keep it interesting and had me going back for more. The narration by Alan Philip Ormond was superb. I loved the Scottish accent and I think it probably added quite a bit to my enjoyment of the book.
I was given this audio book free in exchange for an honest review.

Sweet Romance & Exciting Story

Gallagher's Pride is the first book I have read by MK McClintock. I purchase the Kindle book a few years ago, but just never got around to reading it. I won the audio version a few months ago, and decided to give it a listen. Gallagher's Pride is one of those books that I wish I had read or listened to sooner.

I enjoyed the story immensely, and I loved the characters! I enjoy watching westerns on television, but never thought I would enjoy reading or listening to one. I think that may be why I put off reading this book for so long.

Brenna Cameron is a headstrong woman, and she is a Scot. Those two things made me like her right off the bat. Soon after her father dies, Brenna thinks she is alone in the world with no living relatives. She soon discovers that she has family in Montana, so off she goes to Montana by herself.

Once in Montana Brenna has a run in with a few unsavory characters, but she is no timid little miss. She stands her ground, only to have Ethan Gallaher come to her rescue. She is not sure how she feels about this, but something about him makes her trust Ethan.

Brenna finally meets Nathan Hunter, her grandfather, and understands why her mother and father never spoke of him to her. He is a mean and cruel man, and has no desire to be a grandfather.

Gallagher's Pride is not a long book. The audio book is only about 6 hours long, but in this short period of time the author made me care about what happened to the characters. I felt invested in the story, and the plot. The secondary characters, Maybell (house keeper, and cook, but more like family), and Ethan's brothers made the story that much more enjoyable.

The narrator of the audible version is Alan Phillip Ormond, and he does an excellent job of narrating the story. When you listen to an audio book, and the narrator is a good one, it makes the story come to life. Well, at least it does for me. He doesn't speak to fast, and I wasn't bothered at all when he did the female voices. That is a big plus!

I will warn you though before you start reading this book, or listening to the audio version, that the story ends without resolving a few of the story lines. I wasn't too upset by that (I would have been normally), because I had the audible version of the 2nd book, Gallagher's Hope. If cliffhangers bother you, I recommend getting the 2nd book immediately.

This book does have some profanity in (damn, hell), but none are are vulgar. I recommend this book to anyone that enjoys western romances, real cowboys, beautiful scenery. This book had just the right amount of excitement to keep you listening.

I won an Audible copy of this audible book in a contest from the author. All opinions and thoughts in this review are my own.

Enjoyed every minute.

This book was an unexpected pleasure. Just enough twists and turns to hold my interest. The narrator was wonderful and gave the characters more meaning.

Good blend of Romance and Suspense.

Brianna is a strong Scottish lass who thinks she is alone until her dying father tells her of her mother's parents in America. Apparently her grandfather disowned her mother when she married her Scottish father instead of the fiance her controlling father had picked for her. Armed with a letter rejecting her mother and children, Brianna heads to America for answers.

Brianna arrives in rough Montana where her PI located her grandparents. She is lucky to meet Ethan Gallagher and his brother when she is accosted by a leering drunk right after stepping off the stagecoach. Brianna is invited to stay at the Gallagher ranch with their sister and housekeeper to keep things respectable. Little does she know that the ranch borders her grandfather and the relationship between the two families are strained at best.

Brianna learns that her grandfather is a mean and bitter man who drove off his own wife. She decides to follow the path of her grandmother in case she can be found. That quest sets off events of suspense and danger, including kidnapping and a shootout.

As they travel, Ethan begins to see a remarkable strength and bravery in Brianna. He might be interested if only he can get past the betrayal of his former fiancé who was found with another man the eve of their wedding. Brianna is falling for Ethan but she won’t accept less than a full commitment.

This is a charming story with characters I really liked. There is a little mystery and suspense to fill out the romance which is on the edge of sweet (simmering, as noted). Ethan’s siblings are lively characters and I am sure there are more good stories coming for the family. I recommend this to readers who enjoy warm, historical romance.

Audio Notes: I enjoyed the rich accents of the narrator, Alan Philip Ormond. He captures the Scottish brogue and good old country Midwest. The narration enhanced my enjoyment of the story.

Thoroughly enjoyed book #1 in this series

This is book #1 in a series, and is somewhat of a stand alone story, though it leaves some unanswered questions at the end to continue into the next story.

I enjoyed the characters in this story, particularly the plucky Irishwoman, Brenna, and the relationship between the Gallagher siblings. The story is a well-written historical romance, with a bit of intrigue/adventure. I liked the twists in the story-made for a more interesting tale than a straightforward love story would have done.

I listened to the audio version of the story, and narrator, Alan Philip Ormond, did a fantastic job bringing the characters and the story to life. I will definitely be checking out the rest of this series, and more by this author, and also others with this narrator.
