I loved this book! It was well written and entertaining with plenty of passion, light humor, and intrigue.
I had wanted Lana and Lachlan to get together since the first book of the series. Even then it was clear that they had a connection, but there were great obstacles in the way. They were perfect for each other but for the ancient curse, a mystery, a treasure, and a nefarious plot that stood in the way of any future together.
This was a great love story where the main couple were drawn together by a mystical connection.
"Thirty years and not a breath more
For Sinclair heirs of Caithness Moor
Short lives they live to pay the cost
'Til joined once more the MacAlpin Cross"
Lachlan Sinclair believed he was cursed to die before he turned thirty years old, just as his ancestors before had perished. He made a vow that the curse would end with him so he refused to marry and have an heir. Lana Dounrey interacted with spirits and dreamed of things to come. She dreamed of Lachlan just as he had been dreaming of him. When they met there was mutual fascination. They had a lot in common that sparked a friendship between them and soon after it turned romantic though Lachlan was reluctant where Lana was more than willing. Of course a love that was that fated could never be denied even though Lachlan tried his best to keep his vows. But fear not because absolutely nothing was as it had seemed.
Sabrina York has woven a special love story for Lana and Lachlan. It finished the series with a wonderful book that I didn't want to put down. The plot and the mystery were brilliantly written and I loved watching the stuffy Duke growing into his Scottish heritage. There were a few twists and the previous characters were all there, which brings me to my favorite character of all, the adorable urchin Isobel. She nearly stole the show again so there were a few funny scenes.
So all in all LANA AND THE LAIRD was a wonderful and witty story and a must read for fans of the series.
LOVE IS A BATTLEFIELD
Lachlan Sinclair cannot escape his accursed heritage in his Highlands homeland. Somewhat resigned to the fate that destroyed his ancestors, he is prepared to live his life without an heir, without a wife?without love. But when he meets the woman of his dreams in the flesh, the bewitching lass makes him want to throw away his cursed, restrained existence…and unleash the highlander within…
Lana Dounreay has only seen the Duke of Caithness in her dreams as a wild, rugged man, while in reality, his life has been cramped by curses and cravats. He may have forgone his kilt and lost his brogue, but Lana knows that the heart of a true Scotsman beats within his broad, muscular chest. But what plans does the mysterious, passionate Lachlan have in mind for her?and can she convince him that love is stronger than all else?
