Publisher's Summary

Claire Elliot has two weeks to win the heart of Jules MacIntyre - and then break it. To save her wards from a vicious blackmailer, she dares to enter the laird’s castle, claiming to be the wife he’d recently wed. But no such wife exists!

The brooding Jules invented a bride to silence his well-meaning, matchmaking friends, so he never expected her to arrive on his doorstep. He is suspicious of this beautiful stranger, but he’s also steadfast, courageous, and effortlessly seductive. In fact, he’s the very man Claire would choose to love…if she weren’t forced to betray him.

She is an intruder at best, and a liar at worst, but still Claire enthralls Jules like no woman before. He agrees to let her stay - at least until he uncovers the truth - and soon she is filling his manor and scarred heart with the warmth they have both been lacking.

While an unknown enemy has chosen Claire as a weapon to destroy the laird, Jules vows to fight for the passion he has found with his fantasy bride made flesh.

Horrible Narration

The story would not be bad, but the narration spoiled it all. I could not hear it to the end. The scottish accent was much to pronounced, it was hurting... the constant wining when she spoke the women`s parts...awfull. It is a pitty that this narrator has so often the task of narration in this area of audiobooks. I will think a second time before I purchase another book read by her.

ABOUT THAT

THE STORY LINE WAS GOOD, BUT THE NARRATOR SOUNDED LIKE SHE WAS CRYING THE WHOLE TIME WHEN SHE SPOKE FOR THE WOMEN. IT CERTAINLY TOOK MY ATTENTION AWAY FROM THE STORY.

Narrator Has Been Better

Would you try another book from Gerri Russell and/or Justine Eyre?

Yes, but I'd look more closely at the reviews first.

If you’ve listened to books by Gerri Russell before, how does this one compare?

Yes, this one was not as good. This book, This Laird of Mine, became TOO sappy and I love a good love story.

Would you be willing to try another one of Justine Eyre’s performances?

At some point - just not in the near future - I enjoyed her work on some of the Sabrina Jeffries books, but this was just again...TOO sappy, and her voice added to the sappiness.

Do you think This Laird of Mine needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Yes...I'd like to have the wards to have a story...let them be stronger characters and not stupid and go where you KNOW the villain will be.

Any additional comments?

Just not happy with this book...I had to skip "touching" parts to get to the end...they were too long and SAPPY...no character...no, no...limited and wimpy characters...yuck.

DISAPPOINTED!!

Would you try another book from Gerri Russell and/or Justine Eyre?

Not Sure

Would you be willing to try another book from Gerri Russell? Why or why not?

story was too predictable!! The Villain seemed to always have the upper hand and I don't really cared to read about young people teens or children being abused.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The Narrator didn't do a good job on the Scottish Accent. At times she sound British. The accent also, kept changing like she couldn't get her footing on each character.

Do you think This Laird of Mine needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No

Any additional comments?

The story is to abusive to children and was extremely predictable!! The romance was not believable at all.

Hillarious And Entertaining

I love the storyline it suits me when I want something light listening but not kind of cheap romance. My first with the author and I find it awesome the way she wove the historical romance with a little fun twist. Love IT!!!!

Good story

This was a good story. The narrator was middle of the line. If the narrator had been better I would have given it a 5.

Delicious...Sexy and DIFFERENT

Loved it loved it loved it!

Gerri Russell does a great job creating stories that are different than the usual romance. Once again she has a different plot that keeps you interested and wanting to see how everything plays out.

Claire & Jules's relationship is so ... Well...I don't know .... I just liked them so much. She is a strong woman and is a real challenge for the stubborn Jules.

We get to se some of our favorite characters from "A Laird for Christmas" and they make this book that much more enjoyable.

Read this series...and let's hope more books are to come. This is a fabulous romance!

Great, delightful, and kept me hanging on

Rated 4 because I was bored with the sexual content. Other than that it was a great, interesting, fulfilling book.

Money Isn't Everything

This was a good twist for a Highlander book. We were introduced to solicitors , which I did not know existed that far back in history & what happens when a castle is left unattended for many years. Claire & Jule become a perfect match after all the obstacles they have to undertake to find each other again.

Awful narration

What didn’t you like about Justine Eyre’s performance?

The narrator's tone of voice was really irritating and she seemed to confuse a Scottish accent with an Irish accent and not a very good Irish one at that. It really spoilt it for me to the point where I couldn't finish the book.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The storyline was ok for this type of book and I would probably have enjoyed it if it weren't for the narration. I bought this as I had previously liked A Laird for Christmas by the same author which had a different narrator.

Any additional comments?

I would buy another Gerri Russell book but not with this narrator.
