A LAIRD FOR CHRISTMAS
A Laird for Christmas seems almost like an embarrassment of riches, with six Scottish lords to choose from. Most of the men are well differentiated, although some of them get lost in the shuffle with similar motivations and characteristics. Fortunately, the men become much more distinct as the story progresses, as well as quite endearing. The novel is highly romantic, but takes itself a little too seriously — which shouldn’t be the case for a book that is essentially a Renaissance version of The Bachelorette. However, the dreamy Christmas motif makes this a nice fit for curling up by the fire on a crisp night.
