I really enjoyed the first book in the Tartans and Titans series, but I didn't like this one...I loved it! Apparently I need to go read the previous series by these authors, as I love a good Highlands story and these ladies know how to write them. After I read Sweet Home Highlander, I hoped the next couple would be Julien and Makenna and squeeeee, I got my wish! (If you haven't read the first one, this stands alone.) When we met Julien and Makenna previously, you could feel the chemistry between them; but alas, Makenna was married. Now Makenna's brute of a husband has been murdered, and she is accused of the crime by the deceased 's dreadful cousin who lusts after her. She and her maid escape, and they go to hide out at Julien's castle, thinking he is in France. Oops...He and his mother are in residence. She worries that she will bring trouble to Julien's home, but cannot seem to make herself leave. But it eventually becomes apparent that trouble has followed her. Julien and Makenna are marvelous characters and make a great couple. I loved Julien's smirk and his rather hideous waistcoats. And I loved Makenna's strength and independence. I was drawn to their humor (particularly Julien's) and captivated by their passion. If you love stories about the Highlands, strong heroines, gorgeous Frenchmen who are Highlanders at heart and lots of steam, you won't be the least bit disappointed. Here's hoping I'm right and next will be Ronan's story. I received an ARC of this book courtesy of NetGalley. I received no compensation for this review, and all thoughts and opinions are entirely my own.

A Lord For The Lass was another good read from the writing duo that is Amalie Howard and Angie Morgan. I don't read historical romances all that often, but I am definitely hooked by this series and I enjoyed this one even more than I did the first of this spin off series. Makenna was such a great character! She has been through so much but she is still so strong and so fierce. I loved how brave she was and how she was also so compassionate and cared so much for others. And then there was Julian... oh my how I loved him! He is so charming and so witty and I fell hard. But he is also so guarded and it was nice to watch him open up and finally trust enough to be truly happy. The book also delivered a great cast of secondary characters. Malcolm is such a sweetheart and I adored Julian's mom. I also loved catching up with some great characters again! I especially loved seeing Brandt, and even though it was super brief it was nice to see him again. I think he is still my favorite, although Julian and that sass of his came close to knocking him off that top spot. And I feel like I have been talking about Ronan since My Scot, My Surrender came out, but that man needs a book and he needs it now! Along with great characters though, I really loved the suspense plot woven throughout. I did peg the bad guy early on, but I was still kept on the edge of my seat waiting to see how it was all going to play out. All in all, A Lord For The Lass was another good read from this duo and I am looking forward to more from them *cough*Ronan*cough*.

I loved Makenna and Julian's story! After reading the first book in the series, I was really hoping that Makenna would be rid of her husband so that she and Julien could make a go of it. You could see the heat between them even then! Makenna's husband has been murdered and she has been blamed for it. With nowhere else to run, she heads to Julien's home hoping to stay for a few days to gather her thoughts and form a plan. She didn't count on his being in residence when she arrived. She doesn't want to bring him into this mess, but with not wanting to get her family involved, she doesn't have any other alternatives. Julien met Makenna a year ago and since then he can't stop thinking about her. When she ends up on his doorstep needing his help, he promises to do everything in his power to help her. Neither of these two are looking for a relationship, but sometimes the heart knows differently. Can these two prove that Makenna didn't kill her husband and get their HEA? Loved this story so much!! The tension between Makenna and Julian was so think you could have cut it. Their past experiences kept them from wanting more, but thankfully their hearts won out in the end. I can't wait for the next book in the series!

Makenna Maclaren Brodie was imprisoned for the murder of her cruel husband. One night, she was released by someone she barely knew. She and her maid travels to a house that a friend owns, hoping to hide there until she can get away for good. When she gets to the house, her friend, Lord Julien Leclerc is moving in. She can't imagine why he is in Scotland when he lives in France. He met her at a wedding previously and was very attracted, but nothing came of it as she was married. Colin, the new Laird of Brodie wants Makenna and will search until he finds her. Meanwhile, Julian and Makenna fall in love. There have been attempts on her life. Who knows where she is ? There are twists and turns. Villains that you won't expect and an ending that I didn't see coming. The heroine was fiesty , the hero honorable. I loved that the characters were fleshed out. The villains were really bad and Makennas's family were great. I received this book from Net Galley and Entangled Publishing for a honest review and no compensation otherwise.The opinions expressed are my own.

Another wonderful story in the Tartans and Titans series! Whats a woman to do when she is accused of killing her husband, the laird of the Brodie clan? Escape with her maid and get away as fast as possible. Lady Makenna fled to the home of Lord Julien who she had met over a year ago and hoped that he would help her. She knew everyone would be looking for her soon . I loved Makenna and Julien. The slowly became friends and although the last thing Makenna wanted was another man, Julian slowly was able to gain her trust. Be prepared to be pulled into this tale with strong characters and a great storyline with a few twist and turns that will keep you guessing. Cannot wait for the next in this series! I read this through NetGallery. Lori Dykes
