I just finished reading Waiting for the Laird, written by Willa Blair. This author has done it again! I got so captivated as soon as I started turning the pages—from the first page until the very end. A real page turner! This story was fantastic! This author is a high quality writer who knows how to pull you into her story with words flowing. I could feel Ms. Blair's interest in the history and tales of Scotland. When you start this novel, you won't be able to stop.
This Scottish tale tells the story of young widow, Lara, and her two nine years old twins, Amy and Alexander, who will play an important part in this story, and of course, Ian, the handsome architect. Their story is mainly set in a Scottish Cairn Dubh Manor that holds secrets, Scottish artifacts, and even maybe a ghost! Lara hired Ian to help her to restore the older parts of the manor, but as they spend more time together, their relationship will grow. Is Ian truly the man he appears to be? Is he hiding a secret? Will Lara find out Cairn Dubh's history? Let's say that while renovating the old ruins, they discover the unexpected, that might change Lara, Ian, and the twin's lives forever! I won't tell you the rest to keep the mystery going. Beautiful sweet chemistry between Lara and Ian. It's so refreshing to follow their relationship and watch it grow with kisses here and there, then a journey of teasing and seducing begins with a beautiful and unexpected ending!
I have to say that Ms. Blair is a talented storyteller of Scottish tales. I had so much fun reading Waiting for the Laird, knowing now that it really reflects Lara and Ian's sweet and romantic story. I'm never disappointed with the author's Scottish adventures! I truly enjoyed every minute of it!
This is the story of young widow, Lara MacLaren and Ian Paterson, the handsome artitect she hires to help renovate her Scottish Inn, and Lara's mischievous young nine year old twins, Amy and Alexander. Set amidst the Scottish Cairn Dubh Manor. Steady paced with engaging characters and a uniquely intriguing storyline. Filled with secrets, a ghost, possibly, Scottish artifacts, Jacobite treasures, ancestry, second chances, romance and love.
A fun, heartwarming love story, that will capture readers hearts and hold them glued to the pages of this fabulous Scottish read. Lara's twins are a priceless addition to a magnificent story! Ian is afraid if he reveals his secret, he has an ancestry claim to the Manor, but will he lose Lara, her twins and the chance for a HEA and a family? Or will it destroy their budding romance? Can Ian convince Lara he loves her and the twins, that they're his future, or lose all he holds dear?
A magnificent story from start to finish! Willa Blair is a fantastic Scottish Romance storyteller! A must read for fans of Scottish Romance, Scottish history, and a delicious romance. Ms. Blair has a way of holding readers attention and capturing their hearts! A most enjoyable and satisfying Scottish Romance!

Ian Paterson wants Lara but if she finds out who he really is he is afraid that will be the end of them before anything can get started. When they uncover proof of who Ian really is he knows he has to come clean with Lara. With the help of a very interesting ghost, he has to prove to Lara that she and the twins are more important then his ancestry.
This is a heartwarming, fun story about family, heritage, starting over and one wonderful ghost! Absolutely enjoyed this Scottish tale! Willa Blair has such a gift in bringing these stories to life. I couldn’t wait to find out what the secrets were going to turn out to be. I could just picture the castle, countryside and of course Fergus, the ghost! Great read!
