Constant Ridgely, seventh daughter of an upright patriot family, discovers Kam beaten senseless by a crowd of colonists. She must hide him or watch him die, but the strange, brawny Scotsman inflames passions she’s never guessed at…Under Constant’s ministrations, Kam discovers a lovely, innocent woman whose hands stir his desires. But much is at stake and there is much to lose, and their happiness depends on a risk so great only the truly lost would dare…

LAIRD OF BALLANCLAIRE by Jackie Ivie is another fantastic Scottish Historical Romance set in 1771 Scotland. Fast paced and filled with seduction, rebellion, betrayal, deception and passion.  Revolutionary War romance at its best. However, it does have sadness, heartbreak as well as romance and love. Everything you could possibly want in a romance. Filled with a bit of danger mixed into the story. I loved this story, the prince and the female pauper! I did have a hard time at first understanding the deception that Kameron Ballan, heir to the Laird of Ballanclaire and his fiesty Constant Ridgely do in order to save their children and their forbidden marriage. Although, they where not alone in their deception to fool Kameron’s father.  From the American Colonies to the Scotland you will not be disappointed in the tale of the  Laird of Ballanclaire and his beloved Constant. Overall, this is a must read story of following your desires, passion and dreams in order to find your true happiness. Star-crossed lovers,may just find their HEA ending,after all! Engaging and likeable characters, well some of them anyway. And an intriguing storyline. Received for an honest review from the publisher.
