Romance in the Highlands...review for The Lady and the Laird

The Lady and the Laird - Nicola Cornick

Lady and the Laird by Nicola Cornick

 

Lady Lucy is a sensible girl who seems to enjoy life but unfortunately in life there is tragedy. That tragedy affects Lady Lucy in a harsh and unyielding manner turning the sensible girl into an emotionless woman who hides behind intellect and life as a bluestocking.  Luckily Lucy is not hopeless in fact she has a bit of a hobby writing erotic letters for men but Lucy is a lot naive as most of her life is spent in a book and she does not fully understand the consequences of her actions.

 

Robert the Marquis of Methven has returned to Scotland with the intention of marrying a woman in order to saving his lands and his people but a certain someone’s letters have interfered with his plans. Now Robert has to find a new wife or a new plan and quickly, even though he is trying to figure out his options a certain letter writer has gotten under his skin.

 

So I am fairly sure we all know the romance is going to be between Robert and Lucy no spoiler there but I loved how it came together. I absolutely loved the characters – I wanted to beat Lucy because well she has some challenges but Robert is no saint either and at times I to wanted to throttle him. This for me is the mark of a good book because I laugh with the characters and I cry with them. Ok well teared up a time or two but it is incredibly well written. I would not say this is a fast moving story but it is emotional and sweet just what I like about a Scottish romance.
