Unless my memory as disappeared the first book deals with themy memory as disappeared the first book deals with the in childbirth of one of the sisters and yet even when Lucas was discussing the death of is brother and when Christina talked of the death of er mother the sister was forgottenSo in the end I really liked Claimed by the Laird I just replaced Russia with something else as I read and I got by A good bet for both Regency and Highland romance fans Review copy provided by NetGalley DNR beyond page 70Claimed by the Laird Leftover Dead (Trailer Park Mystery, has elements that echo NC s lovely Scandalous Women and Brides of Fortune series but its spark isn t as intense The backstory for Lucas is compelling just not enough to offset Christina s initial caullous treatment of Lucas which made itard for me to root for them to end up together Ultimately this is about my lukewarm enthusiasm for this Scottish Brides series than it is about any aspect of NC s writing More specifically smuggling is one of my least favorite topics in istorical fiction but the appeal of NC s writing talents and POV lured me into giving it a go This one dragged a bit for me although I m not sure whysmugglers murder and sympathetic characters abound The end was dramatic and then uiet and then the mystery wasn t really explained very well I think that the author got a bit lost at the end but overall Cornick s writing is better than most of this genre This is the book I read again and again I find all of Cornick s books both plot and character driven but this one is the best Essentially she writes very interesting stories I loved Christina and Lucas I loved that they ad suffered ad HAD THEIR OWN INDEPENDENT EXPERIENCES I LIKED HOW THEY their own independent experiences I liked ow
