Book Review: A Runaway Bride For The Highlander by Elisabeth Hobbes.

It's time for book number three in The Lochmore Legacy series! I've said it before, but I'll remind you again, you must pick up this series. Four amazing authors and so far three brilliant books. They are definitely worth a read. Next up is A Runaway Bride For The Highlander by Elisabeth Hobbes.

The Blurb.

Lost in the Highlands
Found by the Scottish Earl!
Part of The Lochmore Legacy: a Scottish castle through the ages! Far from her home in France, Marguerite Vallon escapes her arranged marriage to a man she despises. Stowing away in a stranger’s cart, she finds herself headed deep into the Highlands with Ewan Lochmore, new Earl of Glenarris! Ewan vows to protect her. But maybe the freedom Marguerite has been searching for can be found with this rugged warrior…

My Review.

Doesn't it make you happy when you can pick up a book and there are no awkward feelings? No uncomfortable shifting around as you try and settle into the story and to the writing? These are magical moments, I believe, when you have found the book you are meant to be reading and you have found an author whose words speak to you and whose writing style you instantly connect with. I am fortunate to have grown quite the collection of these special authors over the last few years and a lot of them happen to be in the historical romance genre. Four of them just so happen to be writing these series, which is why I knew it was going to be a winner from the offset. 

Elisabeth Hobbes flowed effortlessly into book three. It's a new story, a new era but the connections to The Lochmore Legacy and the family were all there and all made me feel like I was returning home to learn more about the history of a clan that I am now very much emotionally invested in. 

Firstly, I was all for the way Marguerite handled her situation, I don't want to give too much away, but it felt like a surefire bit of girl power for way, way back in the day. Usually there is a night in shining armour or a get out clause for the situation she had found herself in, but Marguerite didn't wait for any of that, she figured it out for herself and was brave enough to carry out her plan. I very much admired her courage. 

Ewan Lochmore was quite the man. I liked that he was every bit of a man who enjoyed life, he danced at the parties, drank and wanted to have fun. However, he also took his role as The New Earl of Glenarris very seriously and wanted his clan to believe in him and respect him like they had his father. He was also a gentleman when it came to Marguerite and I loved then way he grew to protect and care for her. He was definitely the man you would want on your side in her situation. 

The relationship between Ewan and Marguerite made for a wonderful read, one I very much delighted in reading every night. Both of them were very strong characters, full of determination, bravery and love that they just needed each other to help reveal. The end made my heart happy too, which is always a good thing as usually I dread the last few sentences of a good book - a bookworms nightmare - but we keep on going! ;) Onward to book number four and the last in this amazing series! 

Happy Reading!
