    Originally posted HEREFirst thing what were they thinking when they made this cover It’s not 1978 any and the first two in the series had much classier coversThough I’m a huge fan of this author and have enjoyed the other books in this series I nearly didn’t get past the first few pages of this book I’m glad I did though because I really enjoyed it It was a thousand times better than most of the other historical romance

    The third book in the Scottish Brides series by Nicola Cornick is my favoriteWhen I first started reading historical romance in 2011 British author Cornick was one of the first authors who captured my interest with her passionate stories and her fiery heroines in her Scandalous Women of the Ton series Since then I’ve been slowly reading her backlist This is her newest series set in Scotland and while very

    DNR beyond page 70Claimed by the Laird has elements that echo NC's lovely Scandalous Women and Brides of Fortune series but its spark isn't as intense The backstory for Lucas is compelling just not enough to offset Christina's initial caullous treatment of Lucas which made it hard for me to root for them to end up together Ultimately this is about my lukewarm enthusiasm for this Scottish Brides series than it is about any aspect of NC's w

    This is the book I read again and again I find all of Cornick’s books both plot and character driven but this one is the best Essentially she writes very interesting stories I loved Christina and Lucas; I loved that they had suffered had had their own independent experiences I liked how they each had their own space and that Christina was a strong autonomous woman I also liked that she was not so young that she had had experie

Mother Lucas earns his living running a successful gambling house He's also a spy charged with bringing down the Forres Gang He thinks The Lady's just a bored society spinster She thinks he's a lost child playing at rebellion And when the truth comes out it's not just their love on the lin This one dragged a bit for me although I m not sure whysmugglers murder and sympathetic characters abound The end was dramatic and then uiet and then the mystery wasn t really explained very well I think that the author got a bit lost at the end but overall Cornick s writing is better than most of this genre

He will expose her as the criminal he seeks or seduce her as the woman he desires An old maid that's all Lady Christina McMorlan daughter to the Duke of Forres is to society now that she's past thirty She hosts her father's parties and cares for her siblings knowing she'll never have her ow Originally posted HEREFirst thing what were they thinking when they made this cover It s not 1978 any and the first two in the series had much classier coversThough I m a huge fan of this author and have enjoyed the other books in this series I nearly didn t get past the first few pages of this book I m glad I did though because I really enjoyed it It was a thousand times better than most of the other historical romances I ve read recentlyThe reason I nearly stopped reading was because I have ZERO interest in reading books that romanticise Russia I started this book only days after Russians invaded and annexed a city in Ukraine members of my family live in and they had to flee to the other side of the countryThe current genre fiction trend for romanticising Russia upsets meI put the book aside for a few hours picked it up again and loved the rest of it Claimed by the Laird is probably the best old maidspinster themed book I ve read You really feel for Christina and her sacrifices and her pain She had all of her hopes and dreams taken away from her and is making the best of the life she didn t choose for herself When Lucas secrecy and apparent betrayal is heaped on top of that you can feel everything she feels She is one of the most sympathetic heroines I ve read in this genreNicola Cornick has struck gold with her mix of Regency and Highland romance All the society and manners of one subgenre and the wildness and adventure of the other I love her blend of historical touches to go with the interesting characters and clever dialogue She makes you really like her main characters even when they re doing something you don t agree withI also enjoyed reading the secondary romance which was given a few featured scenesI also like how self contained these books are even though they re part of a series There are definitely a few past storylines that are referred to here and there but nothing that is going to frighten newbiesOne thing I was a little confused about was the fact the death of Christina s sister wasn t mentioned once in the entire book Unless my memory has disappeared the first book deals with the death in childbirth of one of the sisters and yet even when Lucas was discussing the death of his brother and when Christina talked of the death of her mother the sister was forgottenSo in the end I really liked Claimed by the Laird I just replaced Russia with something else as I read and I got by A good bet for both Regency and Highland romance fans Review copy provided by NetGalley
