What is The Lochmore Legacy series?
The Lochmore Legacy is a captivating 4 book series with a difference; it’s four individual stories written by four top-selling Mills & Boon historical authors: Janice Preston, Lara Temple, Elisabeth Hobbes and Nicole Locke. The stories are standalone novels but are linked by the setting of a castle in the Scottish Highlands and by a feud between two clans that has spanned centuries.
I voluntarily reviewed an arc of this book. All opinions are my own and no content may be copied. However, authors and publishers may use elements of my reviews for quotes.
Book 1: His Convenient Highland Wedding by Janice Preston starts in 1841 in Castle McCrief were twelve year old Flora, one of the Earl’s daughters is feeling abit miffed with her father’s attitude towards her. Flora is a high spirited young girl and is full of ideas to help with the upkeep of the castle that is rapidly eating up the family’s wealth. Her suggestions have been rebuked so many times she feels dispirited. With her temper still seething Flora goes off for a wander in the castle to work off her steam but during this time she makes a startling discover that frightens her to her core.
Seven years on and the discovery that Flora found still leaves Flora with a chilled fear and questions she’s been afraid to ask. But now the castle is in bad disrepair and her father has virtually sold her off to a stranger and she is set to marry a wealthy gentleman. A man she’s never seen or heard of before but his money is good for the family home.
Lachlan McNeill is a ruggedly handsome man that has worked hard the last few years earning his wealth. He’s now bought himself a castle, a distillery and now a wife. His life is looking almost complete but there’s a hidden sorrow within Lachlan that he’s desperate to remedy. Life in the past was very difficult for Lachlan and his family and a tragedy has left him with a guilt he’s struggling to overcome. Outwardly Lachlan looks the perfect husband but he’s so overcome with the strain from the emotions brought on by his past that it’s placing a barrier against any future happiness with his wife.
I loved this story set in the Scottish Highlands, Janice Preston described the setting perfectly and you could feel a sense of ruggedness of the land and the remoteness to the nearby city of Glasgow. Flora had two different personalities in the story, she was so vibrant as a young girl but by the time she was due to wed her father had knocked the spirit out of her. Once wed she was quite shy and reserved but her spirit from long ago was still there slowly simmering in the background.
With secrets in both Flora and Lachlan’s past can the newlyweds help each other to overcome them? Will the feud from long ago lift it’s ugly head and what is the startling find that Flora discovered?
His Convenient Highland Wedding is gorgeously romantic with a storyline that is filled with secrets, drama and charm.
The Lochmore Legacy looks set to be a fantastic, exciting series with romance firmly at the heart of the stories. I can’t wait to read each story.
