Publisher's summary

Can true love be born from scandal?

She is young and beautiful and fashionable, Edinburgh's most flirtatious hostess. But within the merry widow beats a grieving heart. Lady Mairi mourns the husband she lost two years before-and no matter how accomplished a lover Jack Rutherford may be, their wanton night together was an encounter of the body only, and Lady Mairi would prefer to forget it.

But when Mairi is threatened by a blackmailer, Jack is the only man who can protect her. As they work together to uncover where the danger lies, their passion reignites. Little by little, the masks they wear burn away, and their most private secrets come to light....

Highlander's Passion


In Ms Cornick's second book in the "Scottish Brides" series we find ourselves at a Masquerade Ball in the wild Scottish Highlands of 1815. Where fashionable society widow Lady Mairi MacLeod plans one night of passion with a man she meets at the ball, neither having any idea of the true identity of the other. They wear masks, and the assignation takes place in a dark room. Lady Mairi had never known such desire and passion.

The next morning, while he lay sleeping she finally saw his face and was mortified. After recognizing her lover she decides to leave him "seduced and abandoned", preferring to forget the night of wicked passion she had spent in his arms.

Jack cannot forget the mysterious woman, and becomes obsessed with finding her. Thus begins this compelling story; a blend of passion-filled romance and intriguing mystery.

I enjoyed listening to "One Night with the Laird", and Claudia Harris' narration. It's a story that can stand alone, although part of a series. I highly recommend it.

BUT ONE NIGHT JUST WASN'T ENOUGH

I love a Regency Rake book and what a lovely enjoyable surprise this listen was as it transports you to the Streets of 1815 Scotland and starts off with the H/H returning from a Masked Ball passionately kissing en-route to a love nest where they have an intense sexy night of pleasure. Neither one knew who the other one was because of their masks and then the darkness in the room..... but in the morning the Heroine gets a shock when she sees just who's sleeping in her bed.

Mairi is a strong, independent, beautiful Heiress and Jack is a handsome, arrogant, successful and confident ladies man but both are haunted by their pasts - Mairi's been betrayed, hurt and has dark deep secrets and Jack is haunted by guilt from a tragedy that happened long ago and that, unfortunately, means neither one wants to commit. But when someone threatens Mairi it's Jack that rides to her rescue.

This is a lovely historical romance that's never dull as it's got mysteries, scandal, suspense, murder, secrets, blackmail, lots of sexual tension, desire and great sex scenes as we watch two likeable but broken lovers gradually open up to each other as their characters slowly develop and they finally learn to trust one-another.

Worth a credit? Apart from it ending a bit suddenly (I would even of settled for an Epilogue), YES this would be a nice addition to your Library.
