A Laird to Love, Book 1
Scottish Historical Romance
January 2, 2018
Fleeing London, and scandal, Lady Clarissa Burton runs directly into the wife-hunting Earl of Dumfries while traveling on a rutted Scottish road. She wanted peace in Scotland, not a tall and brooding laird who makes her forget that handsome lords are nothing but trouble. Having spent years of his life fighting English wars, Ewan McDougal, Earl of Dumfries, wants nothing to do with England, or its people, for as long as he lives. He wants a nice Scottish lass to warm his bed and raise a family. So why can’t Ewan stop thinking about Lady Clarissa’s pouty lips or her curves made for a man’s hands? And what happened to her in London that has her running scared?
An engaging tale of opposites attract
A hero who sets out despises her simply because she’s English. A heroine who despises him because she thinks he’s a rake. Yet they can’t fight the attraction. He needs to marry to get his land back together. He was there to court her cousin.
“…he set out to marry a woman of means. But he found something more valuable. A woman who eased the ache and made him feel alive again.”
They both wanted to run and hide from the world and their pain. They helped each other heal and their bond grew stronger each day.
Well-developed characters and storyline. I haven’t read Scottish historical before and I simply adored this one. I liked the development of their relationship. I will definitely be reading the next book in the series.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Tammy Andresen lives with her husband and three children just outside of Boston, Massachusetts. She grew up on the Seacoast of Maine, where she spent countless days dreaming up stories in blueberry fields and among the scrub pines that line the coast. Her mother loved to spin a yarn and Tammy filled many hours listening to her mother retell the classics. It was inevitable that at the age of 18, she headed off to Simmons College, where she studied English literature and education. She never left Massachusetts but some of her heart still resides in Maine and her family visits often.
