He will expose her as the criminal he seeks, or seduce her as the woman he desires…

An old maid—that’s all Lady Christina McMorlan, daughter to the Duke of Forres, is to society now that she’s past thirty. She hosts her father’s parties and cares for her siblings, knowing she’ll never have her own home and family. She has no time to pine, however. By night, she’s The Lady, head of a notorious whiskey-smuggling gang that supports her impoverished clan. They’re always one step ahead of the revenue man—until Lucas Black shows up.

Rejecting his title and the proper society that disparaged his mother, Lucas earns his living running a successful gambling house. He’s also a spy, charged with bringing down the Forres Gang. He thinks The Lady’s just a bored society spinster. She thinks he’s a lost child playing at rebellion. And when the truth comes out, it’s not just their love on the line….

Claimed by the Laird





CLAIMED BY THE LAIRD by Nicola Cornick is a fast paced  Scottish Historical Romance. #3 in the “Scottish Brides” series, but can be read as a stand alone. See, “The Lady and the Laird”, and “One Night with the Laird.
Faced paced and adventured filled. Where Regency England units with the Highlands!

 A smuggler who you will, never guess who is the ring leader, but you do what you have to to support your family, your clan and your siblings. And a gambling and a spy who learns more than who is the ring leader of the famous Forres Gang.

Lady Christina McMorlan, daughter to the Duke of Forres, is so much more than she appears. Lucas Black, is the spy sent to break up and bring to justice the famous Forres leader. Seduction and passion bring these two together. But will duty, and justice tear them apart?

I love this series, but I also love Scottish warriors, passion, seduction and love. Pride goth before a fall, rather said fall is love,seduction or providing for your clan.

A wickedly delicious romp though Scotland. I would highly recommend this title, especially, if you enjoy Scottish romance, smugglers, and spies. Lots of danger, secrets, betrayal and seduction. But most of all the true power of love and trust. I absolutely loved this title. Received for an honest review from the publisher and Net Galley.
