actions speaking louder than words well his words were kinda hurtful though Iain was a twit to hold on to Catriona for so long just because of an oath he gave at the worst of his grieving, and a fear of loving and losing again, blah blah blah You know the drill.But he does grovel well and I was convinced that he loved Marion, well before the end of the story I know I will revisit the last 3rd of

A longing to forget compels him Fate may send them into each other s arms, but only love can mend their hearts An Outlander 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 A Highlander 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 Ensnared 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 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 Excellently written highlander romance It had such great characters a very good story Well recommended. 4 stars After reading some not so good CR in a row, I decided it was high time I picked up a HR And I cannot say how glad I am that I did Originally, I had planned for something by Julie Garwood but this was one high on therecommendation, so I decided to give this a try and I m happy to say that I enjoyed the hell out of this one Though very similar to The Bride by JG, this book was unique in its own way I m planning on binge reading the series soon When I heard that author, Julie Johnstone was writing a medieval tale with a brooding Scottish rogue, I was elated I truly enjoy everything Ms Johnstone has written and consider her a go to author When a Laird Loves A Lady is a fabulous first in the Highlander Vows Entangled Hearts series Two very different people not so

Julie Johnstone was writing a medieval tale with a brooding Scottish rogue, I was elated I truly enjoy everything Ms Johnstone has written and consider her a go to author When a Laird Loves A Lady is a fabulous first in the Highlander Vows Entangled Hearts series Two very different people not so different in their wants and desires Marion de Lacey is being used by her father for a means to his misguided ends and Marion wants no part of it Her traitorous father has betrothed her to an odious knight who would align himself with Marion s father to overthrow their king This knight is the last man on earth who she wishes to marry Along with some of her loyal friends, she comes up with a plan to seek refuge in Scotland but plans go awry and Marion finds herself in danger.Highlander Iain

decrees he marry, Iain discovers there are many dark dealings going on with de Lacey and his underlings On his journey home, he comes upon Marion de Lacey and so their tale of adventure begins A quick wedding ceremony ensues in hopes to thwart any of her father s plans, but it will takethan that for Iain and Marion to come to terms with their unstable future ahead.I can t tell you how much I enjoyed this book When a Laird Loves a Lady is a sweeping story with a beautiful backdrop In this unsteady time these two amazing people will do what they must to assure good over evil prevails Both Iain and Marion are brilliant characters with determination and for as much as Iain would like to keep Marion at arms length, that task is impossible with a lady with as much pluck and courage Their desire for one another is evident and adds so much to this wonderful story It is a page turner and I applaud Julie Johnstone for her first foray into a new era I want the next one NOW I am sorry to say I did not like When A Laird Loves A Lady The storyline was not appealing to me at all.Lady Mairon de Lacy has been order by her father Baron deLacy to marry Sir William Froste A man she can t

3rd party marriages and Catriona is a constant character between Iain an Marion He never lets Marion forget he loves his dead wife This pre occupation with a dead women and the constant reminder of her went on way to far in the story, to the end Marion suffers untold amounts of physical abuse through the story first at the hands of her father, then at the hands of Froste, and then at the hands of his men Oh and lets not forget the abuse she suffers once she and Iain get to his castle She is poisoned and treated badly by Catriona s sisters Come on how much Abuse was the heroine suppose to endure This was not a happy story I hated Iain for most of the story and Marion was just a weak women who accepted her abuse by everyone around her I Cannot Recommend When A Laird Loves A Lady Sorry
