From The Book Junkie Reads . . . When a Laird Loves a Lady (Highlander Vows: Entangled Hearts, #1). . .

Highlander sensuality, protectiveness, intensity. . . 

There are some reading material that I will drop everything for. It just so happen that When a Laird Loves a Lady was one of them. Hot, hunky, highland lover tops the charts for reads that I have to have. And let us not for get the sexy brogue. I have this one on my must read again and again. I look forward to each new addition to this series. I will keep a look out. 

Two people with different in the make up and similar in the needs and desires. I found that the road each traveled to make it to that point where their needs and desires were each other. 

Most families of the era and rank had little use for a daughter except as a bargaining chip and advancement. There was no considering her desires. Marion had to take her future into her own hands. Things always have a way of not going as planned. Then to add to it more happens. This beauty of a lass has not seen the end of it just yet. 

Iain has lost the one that he loves most in the world. Only to be confronted with having to be wed again to free another that he loves. In honor of friend and king he takes a wife. Not just any wife. He gets the honor of a headstrong, loyal, beauty of a English lady. All was not what either was expecting but so much more than either could have dreamed.

Blurb

A need to belong drives her. A longing to forget compels him. Fate may send them into each other’s arms, but only love can mend their hearts.
An Outlander
Raised by a tyrannical father, Marion de Lacy yearns for the comfort of belonging to a loving family. So when her father announces her betrothal to an evil baron in exchange for a number of knights, she concocts a desperate scheme to avoid the marriage: feigning her own death and then fleeing England. But when her plan goes terribly awry and she’s captured by the baron, not even her careful preparations could ready her for the Scottish barbarian who rescues her and then informs her that he’s to marry her by edict of her king. Certain her father will defy the king’s orders and wed her to the baron if she refuses the Highlander’s hand, Marion agrees to marry the strangely compelling but obstinate laird of the MacLeod clan.
A Highlander
After the death of his beloved wife, Iain MacLeod has no desire to marry ever again. Yet when he finds himself obliged to do so to secure the freedom of his childhood friend and king, he reluctantly travels across England to collect his unwanted bride, expecting to find a cold Englishwoman. Instead, he discovers a fiery, bold beauty who is fiercely loyal, protective of those she loves, and defies him at every turn, challenging his certainty that his heart is dead.
Ensnared
Following a hasty marriage and perilous journey to Scotland, Marion harbors no illusions that her new husband loves her. Still, her heart cannot resist the noble, brave warrior, and she cannot suppress the hope that she has finally found where she belongs. However, the harder she tries to fit in with the clan and gain Iain’s love, the farther away her dreams drift. Iain is more than willing to give his respect to his courageous wife—her kisses and caresses even ignite his blood and demand his passion—but he refuses to give up his heart. That is, until enemies near and far threaten to take Marion from him. Now the demons that haunt him can only be conquered by surrendering body and soul to Marion, if only it’s not too late…

A small sigh escaped Marion as she settled against Iain’s chest and laid her head back. Her dark eyelashes fanned downward to veil her eyes. He held perfectly still, wanting the moment to suspend in time. He knew from losing Catriona that savoring such moments when he was in them was wise. He closed his eyes and memorized the way Marion’s bottom curved against him, the silky feel of her skin brushing his own, and the weight and warmth of her body pressing so trustingly against his chest. Slowly, he opened his eyes and devoured the sight of her slender legs and the delicate appearance of her arms, which belied the strength she had shown when saving Bridgette.
Marion had courage, it seemed, for everything she faced. But did he?

He squeezed his eyes shut again, a single thought drilling into his brain. He had the nerve for battle, the mettle to lead his clan, the willingness to sacrifice himself to protect anyone in his care—or anyone who simply needed him—but did he have the courage to give himself to a woman fully, heart and soul, again? He didn’t know, but he suspected he’d never have all of Marion unless he offered all of himself.
