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.
Unlaced by the Highland Duke is Book 2 in The Lochmore Legacy series. The Lochmore Legacy is a series of four stories set in different historical eras around a castle in the Scottish highlands and a feud between rival clans. Each story is written by a different historical romance author and Unlaced by the Highland Duke is written by Lara Temple. Each story in the series can be read as a standalone but I would highly recommend reading all the books in the series to gain full enjoyment and appreciation of this gorgeous historical romance series. You can catch up with my review of Book One here.
Unlaced by the Highland Duke is the story of Duke of Lochmore, Benneit, who is trying to forge a partnership and also help soften the feud with fellow Scotman McCleish. Since the death of his wife Bella, the Duke has focused all his energies on his four year old son Jamie. Benneit hopes to secure a future for Jamie so a partnership is essential. Hiring his late wife’s cousin, Joane (Jo) to help look after Jamie until he marries brings many confused emotions to Benneit and Jo’s minds.
Jo is a widower herself and her first impressions of Benneit six years ago was of an aloof gentleman. However, now she sees him with his son she can see a softer, almost vulnerable side to him. Benneit is fiercely protection of his son Jamie and he also has a strong relationship with his help at the castle. Jo has a wonderful way with children and she soon develops a lovely, warm, trusting relationship with Jamie and Jamie soon begins to show his love and loyalty to her. Jo is a young woman with so much love, vibrancy and imagination and appears to know just how to appease this young boy who is feeling a little lost at the moment.
Lara Temple has written a gorgeous historical romance that is so charming and beautiful and then has an addictive, sensual side to the storyline. With the stunning, rugged backdrop of the Scottish highlands The Lochmore Legacy continues to enthral me with it’s mystery, legends and beguiling romances.
