Conveniently Wed to the Laird


A little different than my normal pick.  But I enjoyed the story of Catriona and Ewan.  An unexpected romance?  Or a convenient arrangement?  Would Catriona accept the Laird's terms?

I liked that it was set in Scotland.  My ancestors were from there.  Of course, it's quite popular right now due to a television show.   I can only imagine how beautiful the area is and how Ewan wanted so much to save his clan. My husband and I plan to visit there next year.  I wouldn't be surprised if I thought of this story as we explore the countryside.  

Both Catriona and Ewan learned survival skills early on to give them the strength and ability to endure painful periods of their lives. These very skills could also prevent them from finding true happiness.  This book is set in the 1700s but this happens now to so many.
