    Historical Romance

    How to Blackmail a Highlander by Michelle McLean The MacGregor Lairds #3 Miss Alice Cheevers is engaged to an old man and she is not happy about it. She is an obedient daughter who understands the value of marrying for wealth and social position...as long as...it is not her that has to do so. And, the idea that the old guy she is to marry has already buried more than one young bride has her nervous...nervous enough to blackmail the young Scotsman who arrives bearing a letter from her best friend Elizabet. Philip MacGregor has no intention of taking Alice along with him on his return to Scotland but before he knows it there she is and along she comes. How she manages to do so, their interactions on the way and after they arrive are the rest of the story AND how they find their HEA was interesting to read. I did find Alice impetuous, spoiled, headstrong and not always aware of the danger she set herself up for and I found Philip to be hardheaded and a bit dense at times when he looked at his own emotions and feelings. This was a light fun easy read that was somewhat predictable but also thoroughly enjoyable...if not very deep. Thank you to NetGalley and Entangled Publishing for the ARC – This is my honest review. 3-4 Stars

    Loved!

    Loved this story! Alice is a pampered lady whose parents have arranged her engagement to an elderly and wealthy man who's had three wives predecease him in just a few years. As she is terrified that should she wed him he will cause her death, she finds her salvation in Philip, a highlander and best friend to her best friend's husband. She blackmail's him into taking her to Scotland. Philip is a man of his word, and therefore chooses the words he uses very precisely......a fact that Alice learns a bit too late. This is an entertaining tale that I thoroughly enjoyed. I loved the characters and their non traditional love story set in a harsh environment that left few, if any, options for women to determine their own fate. Fans of the genre will love this book, and, if you're not a fan of the genre, this novel might just change your mind. The author is on my must read authors' list.

    Great Story

    They do say opposites attract and in the case of Philip and Alice, it takes a while to get there! A young lady being forced to marry a man with three dead wives and old enough to be her grandfather. What could be wrong with that? Especially since rumors are his wives died under shady circumstances. Seeing her chance Alice follows Philip, a cousin of her best friend's husband and the adventure begins. She blackmails him so he will take her to her friend Elizabet in Scotland. In a bold move she declares she is married to him and him to her and realize that is all it takes to handfast in Scotland! Through many ups and downs and arguments and another person Ramsey coming into the scene, this is really an entertaining story! Although part of a series, it can be read as a standalone, but you want to read the others.. I read this through NetGallery

    an annoying heroine, but still an enjoyable story

    Spoiled and high born, Lady Alice has it all, until her parents agree to her betrothal to an earl who is much older and has a string of former wives who have died under suspicious circumstances. Everyone she confides her fears to dismisses this information as idle gossip, so Alice decides to take matters into her own hands. When Philip MacGregor arrives at her house to deliver a message from her friend Elizabet, who now lives in Scotland with her husband (who was exiled from England), Alice takes her chance and blackmails Philip into taking her back to Scotland with him. He knows this is a bad idea, but he can't risk the safety of Elizabet and her husband, John (his cousin). Despite his attempts to send her back, Philip winds up stuck with Alice and after an incident at an inn, the two find themselves married. Sort of. Now responsible for her safety, Philip knows he must rush back to his family's stronghold with Alice in tow before the news of their marriage reaches Alice's family. As travel forces the two together more and more, Philip finds it increasingly difficult to resist Alice's advances and they both begin to feel the sexual tension between them. By the time the two of them acknowledge their true feelings, Alice's unwavering stubbornness and Philip's rather misplaced sense of honor may combine to keep them apart for good. Full disclosure, Alice drove me nuts. She fell into the "strong heroines" category that seems so popular lately in which the heroine knows her own mind and refuses to listen to anyone else (especially a man) and then her own stupidity gets her into trouble that could've easily been avoided if she'd taken a minute to be sensible instead of being so focused on asserting independence. Alice's stubbornness and impulsiveness fell into this category, causing numerous problems for herself, Philip, and others around her. Although I understand the undesirability and peril of the situation in which she found herself, there were many instances that she could've handled much better with just a little time for thought. Although, supposedly her impulsiveness paid off in the end, in a way, so at least there was a place for it at times here. Despite my rant, I nonetheless enjoyed this story and it was nice to see Philip and Alice realize that their differences didn't really matter, just their love for each other. I received an ARC via NetGalley and read and reviewed it voluntarily. Thank you! All thoughts and opinions are my own.
