Review

"A Laird for Christmas seems almost like an embarrassment of riches...highly romantic.  [T]he dreamy Christmas motif makes this a nice fit for curling up by the fire on a crisp night." —RT Book Reviews

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
When I first started reading this book all I could think about was the reality TV show "The Bachelorette".

The Bachelorette (Lady Jane Lennox) must marry by Christmas Eve or she will lose her inheritance. Six suitors gather at Bellhaven Castle, and within two weeks Lady Jane must decide on which one to marry. The men are given challenges to help Lady Jane in her decision making, and to add to the plot there is a villain trying to kill Lady Jane before she can make her selection.

Honestly I'm a little conflicted on how to rate this book. Technically the writing was very good, but for some reason I never felt a connection to any of the characters. I think the problem was the sheer number of "heroes" in the story. I felt like a juggler trying to keep my eyes on 6 balls at once. The beginning of the story introduces the six different men that will be competing for Lady Jane's hand in marriage. All the men (except for one) where described as handsome, courageous, and very eager to marry Jane. In fact they were all so perfect I had a hard time keeping them straight and remembering who was who. Three of the men had unique histories with Jane (so it was a little easy to remember them), but the three other men were kind of a blur of testosterone. To add to the confusion Jane seemed initially drawn to all of the men.

About midway through the book Jane's true love interest became clear, but at this point I had become disinterested in the romance, and was more engrossed in figuring out the identity of the villain.

So all-in-all an okay romance novel, but a few too many likable characters all vying for the reader's and Jane's attention. I wonder if all the hunky heroes will get their own books in the future.

Also: What happened to the puppy? I'm a little worried that she was never mentioned after the "incident".

Loved this story! Lady Jane is left to face the fact that both her father and brother are most likely casualties of war and will not return home. In his will her father requires that Jane be married by Christmas eve to keep the castle and lands that have been in their family for 700 years. Her aunt Margaret convinces Jane that a competition for her hand, and the lands, is the best way out of their current situation. The story follows the competition and it's many twists and turns as Jane and Margaret fight to keep their home. Another great book by Russell.

A thoroughly entertaining read. I was so entertained. It was warm and funny. I can't remember how many times I actually laughed out loud. It was a sweet story with fun, unexpected surprises, mystery, love, friendship, multiple Heroes and twists and turns throughout. I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I did and I am soo looking forward to reading the series.

Review from my daughter -

Jane Lennox is about to get a surprise for Christmas and not one she was expecting - if she does not marry by Christmas Eve she will lose her inheritance of Bellhaven Castle! Six suitors will compete for her hand in marriage but who will the winner be - the charming stranger Colin Taylor; the concerned David Buchanan; the wrongly accused, Jules MacIntyre who would sacrifice his freedom for the heiress; her cold-hearted rake of a cousin Bryce MacCallister; the marriage-ready Hollister Cay or, her old flame Nicholas Kincaid whose affections were doused by Jane's late brother Jacob?

This witty and well-written romance is a great read with lots of character development and suspense. The very idea of a testosterone fuelled competition for the hand of the vulnerable Ms. Lennox is inspiring and exciting. It plays on our emotions and what we want the outcome to be. I look forward to seeing more of Gerri Russell's additions to the Highland Bachelor Series which adds a Scottish twist to romantic fiction in a new and seductive way.

I would also recommend 'The Royal Brotherhood series' by Sabrina Jeffries among others if you like Russell's style of romantic fiction. 5 Stars

Russell is a very visual author. She builds up a world that you could easily step into. Each and every aspect is intricately put together without detracting from the fast forward pace of the story proper. She draws you into this captivating world and draws you along for a captivating ride. Romance, mystery, and intrigue abound keeping you guessing and thinking throughout. I could barely put this one down.

I loved the characters in this novel. The panel of bachelors brought in to this story are all captivating and breathtaking in their own manner. I also appreciated how the main character isn’t perfect. She attempts to be who others want her to be rather than herself. That said, she is intrinsically a good person who wants what’s best for those around her. Watching her journey of self-discovery is priceless.

Overall, think the bachelorette with a historical & suspsenseful twist. Well worth the read any time of year.

The story starts out very good and the last few chapters are excellent only I found myself speed reading in between, the tale was slow going. Lady Jane has to be married by Christmas or she loses her inheritance. Her aunt, Lady Margaret, issues invitations to six men to come to the castle and compete for Lady Jane's hand. When they get there they have six challenges to pass. In the meantime some one is trying to kill Lady Jane. The ending holds some surprises but it does end on a happy note.
