A need to belong drives her. A longing to forget compels him. Fate may send them into each other’s arms, but only love can mend their hearts.
Raised by a tyrannical father, Marion de Lacy yearns for the comfort of belonging to a loving family. So when her father announces her betrothal to an evil knight in exchange for his help to overthrow the king, she concocts a desperate scheme to avoid the marriage: feigning her own death and then fleeing England. But when her plan goes terribly awry and she’s captured by the knight, not even her careful preparations could ready her for the Scottish barbarian who rescues her and then informs her that he’s to marry her by edict of her king. Certain her father will defy the king’s orders and wed her to the knight if she refuses the Highlander’s hand, Marion agrees to marry the strangely compelling but obstinate laird of the MacLeod clan.
After the death of his beloved wife, Iain MacLeod has no desire to marry ever again. Yet when he finds himself obliged to do so to secure the freedom of his childhood friend and king, he reluctantly travels across England to collect his unwanted bride, expecting to find a cold Englishwoman. Instead, he discovers a fiery, bold beauty who is fiercely loyal, protective of those she loves, and defies him at every turn, challenging his certainty that his heart is dead.
Following a hasty marriage and perilous journey to Scotland, Marion harbors no illusions that her new husband loves her. Still, her heart cannot resist the noble, brave warrior, and she cannot suppress the hope that she has finally found where she belongs. However, the harder she tries to fit in with the clan and gain Iain’s love, the farther away her dreams drift. Iain is more than willing to give his respect to his courageous wife—her kisses and caresses even ignite his blood and demand his passion—but he refuses to give up his heart. That is, until enemies near and far threaten to take Marion from him. Now the demons that haunt him can only be conquered by surrendering body and soul to Marion, if only it’s not too late…
Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
Julie Johnstone does it again! She doesn’t seem to be able to write a book that isn’t fabulously entertaining and engaging. I loved this Highland romance. It was chock full of action, adventure, suspense and passion.
Loved this book!! Nonstop action filled humor, love, and plot twists. I absolutely loved the sarcastic dialogue interspersed in this story!!
I found the honesty between the main characters refreshing. In so many romance stories they hide their feelings and withhold information thinking they’re sparing the feelings of the other. There was so much action going on behind the romance. Good story, not just fluff.
If you want action,laughter, betrayal, intriguing circumstances with tears and joy…then read this wonderful new book from this author….I can’t wait for the next.
Julie does an amazing job keeping an exciting pace throughout When a Laird loves a Lady. Without giving too much of the plot away, the deception, villainy, physical and emotional need, love, and romance were perfectly captured. Once I picked it up, I had to finish it.
