Deck the halls with mistletoe! 

For years, shy wallflower Elspeth Douglas has pined for the attentions of dashing Brody Girvan, Laird of Invermackie. But the rakish Highlander doesn’t even know she’s alive. This Christmas, she realizes that she’ll never be happy until she stops loving her brother’s handsome friend. Except it turns out that Brody isn’t singing from the same Christmas carol sheet—Elspeth decides she’s not interested in him anymore, just as he decides he’s very interested indeed. With interfering friends and a crate of imported mistletoe thrown into the mix, the stage is set for a house party rife with secrets, clandestine kisses, misunderstandings, heartache, scandal, and love triumphant.

Down with love! 

Ever since she was fifteen, shy wallflower Elspeth Douglas has pined in vain for the attention of dashing Brody Girvan, Laird of Invermackie. But the rakish Highlander doesn’t even know she’s alive. Now she’s twenty, she realizes that she’ll never be happy until she stops loving her brother’s handsome friend. When family and friends gather at Achnasheen Castle for Christmas, she intends to show the world that’s she’s all grown up and grown out of silly crushes on gorgeous Scotsmen. So take that, my gallant laddie!

Girls just want to have fun… 

Except it turns out that Brody isn’t singing from the same Christmas carol sheet. Elspeth decides she’s not interested in him anymore, just as he decides he’s very interested indeed. In fact, now he looks more closely, his friend Hamish’s sister is pretty and funny and forthright – and just the lassie to share his Highland estate. Convincing his little wren of his romantic intentions is difficult enough, even before she undergoes a makeover and becomes the belle of Achnasheen. For once in his life, dissolute Brody is burdened with honorable intentions, while the lady he pursues is set on a flirtation with no strings attached.

Deck the halls with mistletoe! 

With interfering friends and a crate of imported mistletoe thrown into the mix, the stage is set for a house party rife with secrets, clandestine kisses, misunderstandings, heartache, scandal, and love triumphant.

Review_RmA

The Laird’s Christmas Kiss is the second book in The Lairds Most Likely Series by author Anna Campbell. What a wonderful story and a great addition to this series!

Brody Girvan, Laird of Invermackie is a rake and everyone knows it. But what people don’t know is that in the last year he’s been feeling bored and dissatisfied with his life. He’s ready for a change…

Elspeth Douglas is the youngest and quietest of five children and tends to cling to the sidelines and observe, not feeling she’s worthy to join in. She’s been in love with Brody since she was barely sixteen. After five years of feeling rejected and disregarded, she’s decided to grow up and forget her silly infatuation of the handsome Highlander.

I really loved this couple & oh my how fun it was to watch these two actually spend some time together and start to get to know each other better. Both are shocked at the other’s attention or lack of… Now that Brody has finally noticed Elspeth, her struggle to believe in it was real… With familiar characters from the previous book and Anna Campbell’s witty dialogue, this was one of those books I just couldn’t put down! Highly recommend and look forward to Diarmid’s story next!
