The Laird’s Willful Lass
(The Lairds Most Likely #1)
Laird Fergus Mackinnon/Marina Lucchetti
My Rating: 5/5
An untamed man as immovable as a Highland mountain…
Fergus Mackinnon, autocratic Laird of Achnasheen, likes to be in charge. When he was little more than a lad, he became master of his Scottish estate, and he’s learned to rely on his unfailing judgment. So has everyone else in his corner of the world. He sees no reason for his bride—when he finds her—to be any different.
A headstrong woman from the warm and passionate south…
Marina Lucchetti knows all about fighting her way through a wall of masculine arrogance. In her native Florence, she’s become a successful artist, no easy feat for a woman. Now a commission to paint a series of Highland scenes promises to spread her fame far and wide. When a carriage accident strands her at Achnasheen for a few weeks, it’s a mixed blessing. The magnificent landscape offers everything her artistic soul could desire. If only she can resist the impulse to smash her easel across the laird’s obstinate head.
When two fiery souls come together, a conflagration flares.
Marina is Fergus’s worst nightmare—a woman who defies a man’s guidance. Fergus challenges everything Marina believes about a woman’s right to choose her path. No two people could be less suited. But when irresistible passion enters the equation, good sense soon jumps into the loch.
Will the desire between Fergus and Marina blaze hot, then fade to ashes? Or will the imperious laird and his willful lass discover that their differences aren’t insurmountable after all, but the spice that will flavor a lifetime of happiness?
The Laird’s Willful Lass is the first book in a new series, The Likely Lairds by Anna Campbell. It was fantastic and I honestly couldn’t put it down!
Marina Lucchetti is a successful artist from Florence, Italy who has been commissioned to paint the Highlands. While traveling with her father they have a carriage accident and that’s when they meet up with our hero, Fergus Mackinnon who is Laird of Achnasheen. Marina’s father’s injury from the carriage accident has them stranded at the castle for several weeks….
I absolutely love Marina. She’s a strong, independent and successful woman for the time. Fergus who has been Laird of his clan since he was 9 is used to always having everyone follow his orders without question. Who doesn’t love a handsome arrogant Highlander? 😉 These two together were perfect and the banter between them was entertaining and humorous. There’s an immediate attraction between them from the moment they meet and Anna did a fantastic job of giving us a story to remember! Such a fabulous read from beginning to end! I highly recommend this book and can’t wait for the next book in this series!
