Title: When a Laird Finds a Lass
She is his greatest enemy and his only salvation.
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.

Every young child believes in some type of fairy-tale. Marcail just wanted to belong to some honorable man. Being part of a rich and fearsome clan with eleven of her beautiful sisters, it is hard to feel desired in comparison. She thought she loved the boy she was courting but he only wanted under her skirts. She decides to jump ship after she finds her “betrothed” with another; to bad her memory jumps ship as well. She wakes in unfamiliar territory with no idea of who she is and how she came to the new land.
I totally fell in love with this series with the first book. I was in a way confused on which “fairy-tale” it is like. I think it is like the little mermaid about being two different “societies” and bitter enemies. They fall in love but it’s dangerous to be in love. Plus Marcail loves the ocean and prefers the freedom she gets when she swims.
Malcolm is an intriguing character as you see him transform from a lowly lawyer/lowlander to a Highlander laird. Not many believed in him and he did not believe in himself. He falls in love with his ancestral home and starts to feel like the laird he was meant to be. Even when his clan doubts he rises above. Him and Marcail can have a great love if only he did not keep secrets.
As I have said before I do not like historical romances but Miss Cornwall transports you beautifully into this Highlander world. There is so much drama, lust, uncertainty, loyalty, and action when it comes to these books. I can honestly say that I will not knock this genre as it is slowly calling to me.
I was gifted a copy of this novel from the JeepDiva in exchange for an honest review.
