  • Great addition to the series

    Each work offered in Anna Campbell’s series The Lairds Most Likely has been a pleasure to read by this reviewer and left me wondering how many more I might look forward to. The two main characters in The Highlander’s English Bride are certainly like oil and water. They just don’t mix. Emily Baylor, daughter of Sir John Baylor, well-known scientist, and astronomer, has daggers drawn with Hamish Douglas, Laird of Glen Lyon, formerly tutored and mentored by her dad. Emily has always thought Hamish arrogant and unruly, and he has thought her too independent and opinionated. Emily tries to convince Hamish the material he is soon to present to his peers is based upon incorrect calculations but Hamish thinks she is trying to squash accolades and honor he is sure to gain from his research and findings. The contretemps between them soon cast a blemish on her spotless reputation as well as stains his. Hamish does not want to wed but has no option but to propose marriage to Emily. Initially, she declines but the behavior of others, especially toward Emily, soon nullifies that opinion. Emily establishes stipulations that Hamish must agree to before she marries him. He is not pleased but accedes. What begins as a cold contract between two people who didn’t want to marry, becomes a lovely story of how they came to like and love each other. Anna Campbell did a very good job engaging my interest in these two characters and the change in opinions they gradually had of one another, and the slowly growing romance between them. Emily is like a porcupine. Very spiny and you don’t touch. She had a brilliant mind and would have liked nothing better than to become a well-known astronomer and scientist like her father though it was denied to her because of her sex. Hamish is a likable man, as well as good and kind-hearted. Ms. Campbell sprinkles into Hamish and Emily’s story some of the characters from previous works in this very enjoyable series. The first “loving” episode between Hamish and Emily was so exquisite. I wanted to swoon. “Her touch felt like a benediction. Wherever she stroked his skin, she made him whole in a way he’d never felt before.” Bravo Ms. Campbell for how you handled this sexual episode and the others and how you worded this emotionally packed passage. It was divine. I recommend this book and rate it 4 ½ stars with a 4-star heat level. I was gifted a copy of this book by the author which has in no way affected my honest and voluntary review.

  • A delightful reading experience!

    Hamish Douglas is the Laird of Glen Lyon but his first passion is astronomy. He’s poised to present his groundbreaking research regarding a new comet to England’s elite when Emily Baylor, the bluestocking daughter of his beloved mentor, informs him of an error in his calculations. She’s always been an annoyance and this time she pushed his temper too far. Things got heated and, unfortunately, they were caught in what looked like a compromising situation, shattering their reputations. Of course, the only solution was for the two of them to marry, a solution neither of them wanted. I’m not normally a big fan of these forced marriage situations but got excited about this one because of Hamish and Emily. They were quickly and adeptly defined, he brilliant and brash, she intelligent and independent. Both were handsome people who completely misunderstood each other but deep down respected their skills. Hamish was committed to making the best of it but Emily, in an effort to protect herself, related to him only as she believed him to be, not as he showed up. I found her maddening but she was completely in character. When he gave up and retreated to Scotland, I knew it was the right thing to do to get them on the right path. Hamish and Emily’s journey to find each other and themselves was one I enjoyed immensely. Deep down he was a romantic poet, a side Emily had never seen and didn’t believe she could trust. She was an accomplished scientist operating in a world where women weren’t allowed but had entry through her esteemed father. Losing that independence was a high cost and it took time to develop trust in the man who respected her intelligence. It is a lovely story involving two very admirable, passionate and likable people who you know belong together no matter how their marriage originated. And, the Scotland setting just made this an even more delightful reading experience. (Thanks to the author for my complimentary copy. All opinions are my own.)
