    One thought on “This Laird of Mine”

    1. DISAPPOINTED!!I am a bit disappointed in Jules story. Jules Macintyre suffered enough in bk1 A Laird For Christmas. I also, was disturbed by the villain who is very obvious from the start of the book kidnapping 3 young girls and torturing them. Cutting off the finger of a 16yrs old who was the oldest of the 3 girls and burying the 13 and 14 yrs old Alive. This is a no no for me. It ruined the whole story!! I don't like stories when villain gain the upper hand at any point in a story. Claire has [...]

    2. Second in this series.Jules MacIntyre had already suffered enough and now is without funds in his family's run down manor. He created a fictitious wife so that his friends would leave him be. Claire Elliot was blackmailed into marrying by proxy the Laird of Kildare. An evil force is amongst them. Will evil win?I truly enjoyed this second book in the highland bachelor series and look forward to the next one. There was enough suspense and romantic hot steamy scenes. Loved it. This second book was [...]

    3. Audiobook. I have listened to a few other books narrated by Justine Eyre and really enjoyed them but this one fell a little flat for me. Claire's voice was beautiful but the Hero's voice sounded like an old man. As to the story I really enjoyed the story line itself but the romance part seemed a bit forced and I never truly felt the connection between the two.

    4. This is my first read by Gerri Russell. Claire Elliott has to save her wards and is blackmailed into winning the heart of Jules MacIntyre and the leave. Jules imprisoned by his father to keep him safe from sinister forces that wish to kill him is released and left as the laird of a run down castle. He invents a bride who shows up as a real life person in the flesh.The MC's go tit for tat trying to keep a secrete other suspicious of the woman that has shown up on his doorstep. Regardless of the c [...]

    5. Tense but goodThis second book in th series was sad and tense. Jules was a favorite from the first book and his story was so sad. I am glad he found Claire. I look forward to the next book.

    6. Claire Eliot has just two weeks to win the heart of Jules MacIntyre and then leave him and break it or forfeit the lives of her wards. Her blackmailer is insisting that she pose as Claire MacIntyre, Jules's newlywed bride-by-proxy. But what makes the plan truly outrageous is the fact that no such woman exists. After serving seven years in prison for a murder he did not commit and nearly bankrupt, the last thing Jules needs or wants is a wife. But rather than continuing to endure the advice, sugg [...]

    7. Setting: Argyle, Scotland. July 1680Genre: Romance, mysteryAs per usual, I haven't read/listened to the first book in this series, therefore I was sort of at sea with the foundation of this one. Apparently Jules lost the love of his life, Jane Lennox, to another in the previous book. So, I don't know the timeline involved but here goes: Jules was living in the Lennox household training to be a knight when his father called him home at the behest of Agatha, Jules' step-mother. Some time later (no [...]

    8. “This Laird is Mine” is the second in “The Highland Bachelor Series” and follows the life of Jules MacIntyre whom we first met in the first book “A Laird for Christmas.” Jules has returned home to find both his father and brother are now dead and his home is deeply in debt. To make matters worse, the only woman he has ever loved Lady Jane Lennox has married another. As with any newlywed couple, they wish to see those they love also find happiness and to keep them from meddling, Jules [...]

    9. When imagination becomes reality oh the possibilities!Jules is wrongfully sent to the gallows for the murder of his step mother and spared from the noose only by the testimony of his dear friend Jane. A curious fate indeed but perhaps more curious is who has seen him free? Once freed he returns home to his birthright a Mannor in ill repair with no money or support to bring it back to it's glory except for his few good friends he wouldn't dream of imposing on for favors.To keep his friends from m [...]

    10. This story took place in Scotland in July 1680. Jules was the earl hero & Claire the heroine. Jules had to live down the rumor that he murdered his 'mad' step-mom. A "dark cloaked man" threatenedto kill Claire's wards ranging in ages from 13 to 16. And demanded she make Jules fall in love with her inside of 2 weeks. The leads gradually respected each other and fond love. Jules excelled at fending off the cruel baddie. Jules had "a tattered soul" to start but was much improved by story's end. [...]

    11. This Laird of MineJules from book 2 is the hero in this tale. He is still suffering from the effects of being in Gaul or prison for murder. He has been married by proxy to Claire with out him knowing about it or not even knowing her. The mystery continues so I won't spoil the story by revealing too much to you. Pick up your copy and read it for your self.

    12. The ending.As far as romances go, it was decent. Until the cobbled together end. I can't fully express how bad the ending is. Would have given 4stars if it hadn't felt like it wasn't a 'i don't quite know how to end this so I'll just throw this scene together and call it good!'

    13. The book seemed to be a bit of a contrivance of a bunch of other stories, but it was ok for what it was. Definitely light summer reading, happy ending and all. I'm still trying to figure out if it was self published or just what this publishing really is. Wish I could get someone like Claire to paint my house.r heard of quadratura. :)

    14. Romance with intrigue and dangerInteresting plot twists and surprises. Characters are typical but likable . Author compels you to feel their loneliness and despair even with the knowledge that it should all end well. The setting didn't "feel" like a typical Scottish romance but was intriguing just the same.

    15. Tartans are Kilts The mystery is obvious. The romance is your typical back and forth. The heroine, Claire however is an intellectual commoner with an amazing painting talent. I appreciate that more time is spent on her intellectual & morale character then how she appears. There are some historic references but nothing overwhelming.

    16. Highland Bachelor book 2Romance, history and a really, Really demented bad guy!! I am an artist so some of the characters being painters made this story a lot more fun for me! I listened to the audiobook so the Scottish accents were wonderful for me, too!

    17. Romance, revenge, with a smattering of history.Strong female character who finds herself in a no win situation. And a man with a past and secrets. And finally a revenge plot from a twisted mind. Foreshadowing that the reader knew would be resolved. Very predictable.

    18. ExcitingI find this series so far to be very well written. I chose these books because I enjoy stories about this era. Gerri Russell is an excellent writer and I would recommend this series to anyone that enjoys this era!

    19. Such a sweet coupleWith an evil enemy. Really loved rhis story. Claire is so giving, willing to do whatever it takes to save her wards. Jules is so confused about Claire and who is after him. Couldn't put this story down. Hope Gerrit writes the rest of this series!

    20. Cute and historically satisfactoryan I interesting read with a bit of mystery and twist at the end. I'd like to read it in order to understand the prequels.

    21. Awesome and suspensefulAs stated above there was action and suspense as well as love of course as is to be expected wonderful

    22. Jules & Claireonce i began reading this book i could barely put it dow. romance, suspense and mystery; three of my favorites in a historical romance.

    23. Good StoryI loved this book. A good read. I didn't know, there were others in the series now I must back read lol. A good story love and forgiveness

    24. Scottish historical romanceThis book was a little slow to start, building the characters for you. But then it had some unexpected twists. It was a good read.

    25. I just picked up this author and wow what a fun, exciting read. Can't wait to check out the rest of the series.
