Series Name: Falling for a Stewart, # 3
“A life of freedom awaited her, and she would seize it. Nothing and no one would stand in her way. Not even a handsome and wealthy laird who might well be her new husband.”
Conveniently Wed to the Laird is a vibrant love story that I devoured in one sitting.
The laird’s bridal bid…
Is love too high a price to pay?
When new laird, Ewan Stewart, comes across a wife for sale at a market, he outbids everyone to rescue her. He never intended for Catriona to become his bride, but a convenient marriage could secure his clan’s future and her freedom. They agree that their arrangement must stay free of love, yet Catriona’s bravery and fire intrigue him. Can Ewan resist falling for his wife—the one rule he must not break?
I have adored this series, and I am sad it is over. Overall, this has been an addictive and solid historical romance series. Each story is unique and interesting, and they can be read as stand-alones. I hope that Jeanine starts a sub-series that follows the Camron siblings because I want to spend more time with them. I enjoyed this story; it was witty and swoony in all the right places. The book’s beginning starts with this intriguing bang when Ewan stumbles upon Catriona being forcefully sold by her husband. This scene hooked me right in, and I had finished the whole book before I realized it. There isn’t a whole lot of action in this book. The story’s focus is more on the developing relationship between Ewan and Catriona. But don’t let the slower pace of this book fool you; there are a few unexpected twists in this story that will have you wanting to turn the page so you can see what will happen next.
I will admit I was hesitant to read Ewan’s story. I haven’t been too fond of his character in this series. His unwillingness to stand with his sisters against his father did not leave a good taste in my mouth. I grew to like Ewan and sympathized with his character as the story progressed. It can be hard to understand someone and their actions when you don’t know what they are thinking. So, seeing the world through Ewan’s eyes and learning what he is thinking helps me understand him better. I loved Catriona! She is so different from the other heroines in this series. Her past is tragic and mysterious, and I love her quiet strength. She was a good fit for Ewan. This is a beautiful slow-burn romance. These two are so lovely together, and I just eat up every scene they are in. The chemistry between them was believable and had my heart racing at times.
Conveniently Wed to the Laird is a story that is filled with plenty of emotion and heart.
