When a laird finds a lass - Lecia Cornwall

Malcolm MacDonald, a lawyer in Edinburgh, unexpectedly inherits his father's title of Laird of Dunbronach, forcing him to return to a place he hasn't seen since he was a small child. To gain the trust of a wary clan, Malcolm must act upon their insistence that he cast aside his English betrothed and marry a Highlander. However, they have one condition-no lasses of the barbaric clan MacLeod. When he finds an unconscious woman in the sea, he brings her back to his clan but not before doing the one thing that could save her life-hiding her all too telling MacLeod plaid. When she wakes with no memory of who she is, Malcolm vows to keep the little he knows about her identity a secret. As new dangers threaten his clan, the mysterious lass teaches Malcolm some very important lessons about how to be a Highlander and a laird. But secrets never stay secret for long, and when she finds her plaid, her memory returns and she flees. Malcolm is forced to make a difficult choice to win her back, facing his darkest fears and his worst enemy for a chance at true love. 

My thoughts:
This one was so amusing! I can honestly say that I am 100% it is better on audio! At least it felt so.

Markeil (sp?) is not lucky in love and ends up washed ashore on enemy land. Lucky for her she does not remember who she is.

Malcolm is a lawyer who becomes laird when his father dies. The clan thinks he is a softie since he grew up in Edinburgh. And he does think them barbaric. But he starts to care for the people, and he wants to help rebuild and to make his clan strong again.
Then he finds a lass on the beach....

They will start to fall in love, but we all know that he knows who she is, and she does not. Drama will come and hearts will break. Also this baddie shows up and he is, ugh, he needs to be dump down a mountain.

I also liked the air of magic. No, there is no magic, but the people there believes in magic and they tell stories of selkies and mermaids and that makes it magical.

A fun romance

Ruth Urquhart 
She did an amazing job. I loved her female and male voices, and her accent! I would love to listen to more books narrated by her. She truly made this book and I do feel like because of that you have to listen to this book.

A Highland Fairy Tale #2
Historical romance
For review


  1. I used to read quite a bit of these romances a while ago, but it's been awhile since I've read any historicals. Sounds like there is some great chemistry between the two. Loved your review! Hugs...RO

  2. Except their heads are half cut off on the cover... ;p

  3. I love romances that involve legends, especially ones about mermaids! Even if there's no actual magic in the story.

  4. It is always so nice when you find a narrator that can do both accents well.

  5. Okay sounds like I need audio :D

  6. Sounds like fun, though the cover was a bit off.

  7. "no lasses of the barbaric clan MacLeod" - I don't know why, but reading this part in the blurb made me LOL. Curse those MacLeods and their feral lasses!

  9. Sometimes books are just better in audio. Glad you liked this one so much!

  10. Yay! I had fun with these (in print) will have to look up the audios :)
