THE LADY AND THE LAIRD
Genre: Regency Period, Historical Romance, England
There are many delicious moments in the first of Cornick’s Scottish Brides series. The lively dialogue and sexy cat-and-mouse games (a little touch of Cyrano de Bergerac!) combine with poignancy and tenderness so readers become invested in the characters and their love story.
Though their clans have been feuding for years, it doesn’t prevent a young Lady Lucy MacMorlan from sharing a stolen kiss with Robert, Marquis of Methven. Years later, the world sees Lady Lucy as a lovely, witty young woman, but beneath her bluestocking façade is a woman with secrets. She helps her brother and his friends with their romances by writing sensual love letters. When her brother runs off with Robert’s fiancée, Robert must find a bride who will help him rescue his clan. Fate, blackmail and a kiss place Lucy in his arms — and he’s determined to let her experience all the passion she puts into her writing. As Lucy lowers her guard, Robert’s love allows her to let go of her fears. But a ruthless rival is set to destroy their fragile love and claim Lucy for his own. (HQN, Aug., 388 pp., $7.99)
