Claire Elliot has two weeks to win the heart of Jules MacIntyre - and then break it. To save her wards from a vicious blackmailer, she dares to enter the laird’s castle, claiming to be the wife he’d recently wed. But no such wife exists!
The brooding Jules invented a bride to silence his well-meaning, matchmaking friends, so he never expected her to arrive on his doorstep. He is suspicious of this beautiful stranger, but he’s also steadfast, courageous, and effortlessly seductive. In fact, he’s the very man Claire would choose to love…if she weren’t forced to betray him.
She is an intruder at best, and a liar at worst, but still Claire enthralls Jules like no woman before. He agrees to let her stay - at least until he uncovers the truth - and soon she is filling his manor and scarred heart with the warmth they have both been lacking.
While an unknown enemy has chosen Claire as a weapon to destroy the laird, Jules vows to fight for the passion he has found with his fantasy bride made flesh.

I love Epic Fantasy....have become a Historical Romance fan because I am a sucker for a good Happily Ever After. Good characters are a must
Loved it loved it loved it!
Gerri Russell does a great job creating stories that are different than the usual romance. Once again she has a different plot that keeps you interested and wanting to see how everything plays out.
Claire & Jules's relationship is so ... Well...I don't know .... I just liked them so much. She is a strong woman and is a real challenge for the stubborn Jules.
We get to se some of our favorite characters from "A Laird for Christmas" and they make this book that much more enjoyable.
Read this series...and let's hope more books are to come. This is a fabulous romance!
The story would not be bad, but the narration spoiled it all. I could not hear it to the end. The scottish accent was much to pronounced, it was hurting... the constant wining when she spoke the women`s parts...awfull. It is a pitty that this narrator has so often the task of narration in this area of audiobooks. I will think a second time before I purchase another book read by her.
Mom of 3 and a book lover.
I love the storyline it suits me when I want something light listening but not kind of cheap romance. My first with the author and I find it awesome the way she wove the historical romance with a little fun twist. Love IT!!!!
THE STORY LINE WAS GOOD, BUT THE NARRATOR SOUNDED LIKE SHE WAS CRYING THE WHOLE TIME WHEN SHE SPOKE FOR THE WOMEN. IT CERTAINLY TOOK MY ATTENTION AWAY FROM THE STORY.

story was too predictable!! The Villain seemed to always have the upper hand and I don't really cared to read about young people teens or children being abused.
The Narrator didn't do a good job on the Scottish Accent. At times she sound British. The accent also, kept changing like she couldn't get her footing on each character.
The story is to abusive to children and was extremely predictable!! The romance was not believable at all.
I didn't care for the narrator's voice but it was easy to distinguish the different characters and she is not monotone. The story has lots of mystery tension and romance. The love scenes were very detailed. I love the feelings Jules and Claire have for one another. Very sweet romance.
I loved everything about this book. It was much better than A Laird for Christmas. I was happy Jules got his strength back in the seven months that had passed since the first book was supposed to have taken place. I really liked Jules in the first book and couldn't wait to read his story.
I have to admit I was surprised to see who the bad guy was. I would never have guessed that. And, Claire was simply a great heroine.
It was nice seeing Nicholas, Jane, Hollister and Lady Margaret again. I really enjoyed this book.
AND, it had some great sex in it, too.
I got this book free with my KindleUnlimited subscription.
As to the narrator: Usually Ms. Eyre does a really great job but I wasn't thrilled with her voices in this book. She did make the men sound like men but some of them sounded a old when they weren't. I would still listen to anything Ms. Eyre narrates because she usually wonderful.
The narrator's tone of voice was really irritating and she seemed to confuse a Scottish accent with an Irish accent and not a very good Irish one at that. It really spoilt it for me to the point where I couldn't finish the book.
The storyline was ok for this type of book and I would probably have enjoyed it if it weren't for the narration. I bought this as I had previously liked A Laird for Christmas by the same author which had a different narrator.
I would buy another Gerri Russell book but not with this narrator.
