Ed his 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 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 experiences I love the subtleties in this story I loved the lush love story NK is my favorite romance author so far I would love recommendations for other similarly well crafted and well written books possibly based on historical events like NK does

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

Have her own home and family She has no time to pine however By night she's The Lady head of a notorious whiskey smuggling gang that supports her impoverished clan They're always one step ahead of the revenue man until Lucas Black shows up Rejecting his title and the proper society that disparag. Nicola Cornick always works wonders for me No matter how deep I am in my own work or how much life distracts me with minutia Nicola s fabulous storytelling always paints a new world for me CLAIMED BY THE LAIRD is no exception Filled with smuggling intrigue hidden caves secret identities and a hot man this book kept me turning the pages far into the night And true love is in there too Nicola is a master of true loveshe reminds me why I read romance in the first place and why I write it I can t recommend this one highly enough

    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 wr
