Regency Friday: Nicola Cornick’s Claimed by the Laird


My Review:

Nicola Cornick always works wonders for me. No matter how deep I am in my own work, or how much life distracts me with minutia, Nicola’s fabulous storytelling always paints a new world for me. CLAIMED BY THE LAIRD is no exception. Filled with smuggling, intrigue, hidden caves, secret identities, and a hot man, this book kept me turning the pages far into the night. And true love is in there, too. Nicola is a master of true love…she reminds me why I read romance in the first place, and why I write it. I can’t recommend this one highly enough.


Claimed by the Laird by Nicola Cornick


He will expose her as the criminal he seeks, or seduce her as the woman he desires…

An old maid—that’s all Lady Christina McMorlan, daughter to the Duke of Forres, is to society now that she’s past thirty. She hosts her father’s parties and cares for her siblings, knowing she’ll never have her own home and family. She has no time to pine, however. By night, she’s The Lady, head of a notorious whiskey-smuggling gang that supports her impoverished clan. They’re always one step ahead of the revenue man—until Lucas Black shows up.

Rejecting his title and the proper society that disparaged his mother, Lucas earns his living running a successful gambling house. He’s also a spy, charged with bringing down the Forres Gang. He thinks The Lady’s just a bored society spinster. She thinks he’s a lost child playing at rebellion. And when the truth comes out, it’s not just their love on the line….
