    Historical Romance

    The Lady and the Highlander by Lecia Cornwall Fairy Tale #3 Fairy Tales have been a favorite of mine for decades so finding a rewrite of Snow White, a childhood favorite, that held my attention, hit the main points and was a delight to read provided me with an enchanting way to spend the day! Dark and delicious with an evil stepmother bordering on being a Borgia, or perhaps a vampire, bent on sucking the MacLeod family dry and with only one of twelve daughters to take her evil plot on and save the family – well – I found this enthralling! I loved the hunter’s backstory, the way the dwarves were children in need instead and the love story of Ian and Laire as it unfolded. This book is one that I thoroughly enjoyed and am eager to recommend. Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for the ARC – This is my honest review. 5 Stars

    Unsettling and amazing!

    Mirror, mirror on the wall… Bibiana had been the fairest of them all for a very, very long time. She is getting married for the thirteenth time to Donal MacLeod, who has been married eight times before, and has twelve daughters, twelve lovely daughters. Bibiana is as vain as she is beautiful, and as even more malevolent. Bibiana hates Laire MacLeod on sight: how dare this insignificant girl be so lovely! Laire doesn’t like the dark, doesn’t drink anything but water, is afraid of poison, wine and bloody meats because of a past incident. At the wedding party, Laire senses that something is very wrong. Everyone but she partake in the special wine that Bibiana brought, and they’re acting strangely. Laire also notices Bibiana’s entourage: her old servant, Terza, her bodyguard Frenchman Rafael, and Bibiana’s huntsman, her sealgair, Iain Lindsay, a Highlander. Iain feels something that he had long forgotten when glancing at Laire, and soon becomes afraid that Bibiana has nefarious plans concerning the MacLeod lass. Within a few days, nothing is as it was at Glen Iolair, and Bibiana is even more scared than she was on her father’s wedding day. Iain has less than a year of servitude, out of the seven he owes Bibiana. Iain would like to protect the young Scotswoman, because he admires her courage, but will he? Dare he? Laire MacLeod is in mortal danger because she is the fairest of them all… Iain is not a good man, but Laire makes him remember that everything was not always so bleak and hopeless, she makes him feel. He sees what Bibiana has in mind for Laire, and it makes him angry, but he is conflicted, torn; he feels powerless, and Bibiana has him in her clutches. Is there any good left in Iain, or has Bibiana destroyed his ability to care forever? Right from the indescribably chilling prologue, Lecia Cornwall had me in her grasp, and completely enthralled. THE LADY AND THE HIGHLANDER is based on Snow White, and as I have not read or seen any adaptation of the classic fairytale in ages, I can therefore review this book objectively, based solely on its own merit. Ms. Cornwall has created an unforgettable atmosphere: at one point, I had to look away from my reader, and I was actually startled to notice that it was daylight and that I was not amidst thedark, foreboding forest of the story! I felt as oppressed by the dark as Laire was, I felt the danger as acutely as she did, always afraid that something wicked this way was coming. The prose is stupendous: the author conveys every little nuance, whether of colour, of emotion, of feeling, of danger. Iain has done terrible things, but can he redeem himself? He is a fabulously intriguing character; very charismatic, and mysterious. Bibiana is seductively cruel, and merciless; she is the devil herself. Every character, down to minor ones are extremely well drawn, I loved the delightful Clan of Thieves, the dialogues are superb, and Ms. Cornwall offers a vibrant picture of Scotland. THE LADY AND THE HIGHLANDER is so captivating that I would recommend that you plan good chunks of time, because I found it extremely difficult to put the book aside and then pick back up. Not because I lost track of what was going on, but because it is so mesmerising, I just did not want to stop. This book is filled with action and adventures, and I couldn’t help but wonder how the author would make a romance between Iain and Laire believable, and it worked up to a point: the sex scenes, although well done, felt totally out of place, and completely out of character for Laire. Still, THE LADY AND THE HIGHLANDER would be worth the read if only for the astounding mood created by Lecia Cornwall. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book. I give 4 1/5 stars.

    Loved IT!

    Review For: The Lady and the Highlander 'The Lady and the Highlander' by Lecia Cornwall is book Three in the "A Highland Fairytale' series. This is the story of Laire MacLeod and Iain Lindsay. I have read the previous books but this is easily a standalone book. Laire's father has married for the 8th time in attempts to get a son. His new wife Bibiana and her servants seems to posing Laire's family. They are trying to make her drink this red wine that her father and sisters have been drinking which is making them act funny. Laire only drinks water so now they are trying to force her to drink this wine. Laire goes on the run to try to find help. Iain is one of Bibiana's servants but we learn that he is cursed with a bargain to be in her service for 7 years...which is ending soon. Iain has seen what Bibiana does with the other 13 husbands she has had. Iain tries not to look the victims in the eye and waits his time to be over. But right from the start Laire is one he can't ignore and goes forward to try to help her. We learn that a past issue is what has brought Iain to be in the hold of Bibiana but will be able to get away from her power? Can Laire save her family and help Iain to live happy again?"My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read.
