The Laird of Kinfairlie has helped his sisters, each a gem in her own right, to find husbands. Now the laird himself seeks to wed, and pins his hopes on The Snow White Bride.

Lady Eleanor knows better than to dream of romance and love. Married twice to secure her father's alliances, she has learned that she is desirable only for her fortune. When the Laird of Kinfairlie's sisters ask her to wed their brother, Alexander, Eleanor agrees, expecting only to save herself from danger. But Alexander is like no man she's known before, a man more interested in courting her smile than her obedience, a man who values her counsel as much as her newly awakened passion...and a man unaware that Eleanor is the key to a fortune that could ensure the future of
everything he holds dear.

Now, ruthless enemies will stop at nothing to secure Eleanor's capture. Will she dare to trust her new husband before it's too late for her, for Alexander, and for Kinfairlie?

This edition includes an excerpt from THE RENEGADE'S HEART.

I have looked forward to seeing Alexander find his true love, and I did hope that his two sisters that he meddled with in their love lives got a bit of vengeance, too.  I have to say the way it all played out was interesting, entertaining, and enjoyable.  It had the emotional tension I like in romances; the couple definitely had a lot to work through before they could be happy.  The story Eleanor tells about her first husband and what he did to her horse was the most heartbreaking moment in the story, but it was also the moment the couple truly connected with no more doubts or fears. I enjoyed their story, it did have some slow moments, but overall I enjoyed their adventure and their love story.

This was a well-written, enjoyable medieval romance. Lady Eleanor has been widowed twice and was treated badly in both marriages. Alexander, the Laird of Kinfairlie, has helped two of his sisters find grooms. He sees Eleanor's sadness and wants to make her smile. His sisters suggest to Eleanor that she marry Alexander and she agrees to escape the danger she is in. They have dangerous enemies, but the bigger risk is whether they can let themselves trust each other. This was a great story. It can be read as a standalone book, though is the third in a series with related characters. I am excited to read the next in the series!

I enjoyed reading this story of Alexander and Eleanor. The story had a good flow and I liked how the characters developed throughout. Alexander is an interesting character, caring and intelligent. Eleanor is a good match for that, having been though difficult situations that she needs to recover from. I thought that the story showed how well matched they were and how they could give each other what they needed. Copy gifted by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

I loved this story! After finding husbands for two of his sisters in the first two books in The Jewels of Kinfairlie series, Alexander is finally paid his due. When an unknown woman shows up at the chapel of Kinfairlie seeking aid, Alexander's sisters see an opportunity to turn the tables on him and marry him off. Lady Eleanor has been forced to marry twice before and is in no hurry to find another husband. Having run from her last home she is seeking sanctuary in Kinfairlie when she comes upon Alexander's younger sisters and agrees to be part of their scheme. Little does she know that Alexander has plans of his own to win her affection and heart. I simply adore Alexander and how he strives to win over Eleanor. Their relationship is filled with mistrust and secrets but he refuses to give up on the woman he is falling in love with. I would highly recommend this series to fans of historical romance. ***Copy gifted by the Publisher in exchange for an honest review***

Claire Delacroix beautifully continues the Jewels of Kinfairlie series with the recent named Laird of Kinfairlie’s love story. Featuring lies, deception, deceit and subterfuge she magically takes me back into the far past with a narrative and dialogue that hinted of the Highlands, with characters so richly developed they have no trouble appearing in my minds eye and backdrops so period perfect I can almost smell the strewing herbs placed on the floor of Kinfairlie keep and the sweet savory scent of the majestic steeds in their stables. Her stars are quite the star-crossed medieval couple and with baited breath and nail-biting angst I continually waited for the inevitable doomed other shoe to fall and was pleasantly rewarded for all my anxiety. The Snow White Bride is book three in the Jewels of Kinfairlie series and is now available in all formats. The audible edition is narrated by the mesmerizing lyrical voice of the sensational Saskia Maarleveld whose vocal range perfectly portrayed each and every character from impish young women and children to old men, old crones and adult male warriors and dastardly foes. And whose familiarity of Claire’s tales and characters only increases her brilliant narrations. The five Lammegeier sisters quite vexed with their interfering brother the Laird decide to play a trick on him when their keep is visited by a beautiful stranger on Christmas Eve. Recently widowed for the second time Eleanor Douglas escapes her deceased husband’s family and a dire situation and wanders unexpectedly into the Christmas Eve celebration of Kinfairlie Keep. After meeting the Laird’s sisters she decides this is where she’ll seek sanctuary and agrees to participate in a rouse they’ve concocted. And after a night filled with practical jokes and devilment is satisfied to find herself married to the Laird. Now she just has to concoct a way to keep him. Alexander Lammegeier is a reluctant and perhaps poor replacement for his father as Laird. There is much to worry about at this festive time of year with the coffers nearly empty and still three unwed sisters to find husbands for but there is also much to celebrate and when he spies a beautiful stranger as part of this celebration his only goal is to see her smile. Unfortunately all turns bitter when he learns he played right into a well-planned scheme. Should he throw her out or is there a good reason for her deception?

I really enjoyed listening to this story I thought it was a interesting read with humor, drama and passion. I doubt many people have worse luck than Lady Eleanor it does seem at every turn someone is one step ahead of her make it hard to believe anything she said. She is holding all her cards close to her chest not giving out much information. She has so much to give the right man and all she asks for return is to be respect, cared for and honored. She isn't interested in love just want a man that will not abuse her and trust her. Is that to much to much to ask for? It does seem so when you live in a world where man rule and show no respect to women they are for one thing only and can do with their women as they see fit. They are mean as they use, abuse and beat the women they marry all wanting one thing at this time she has been unable to give. You might say her heart you would be wrong for they have no desire for that they want something much bigger and are willing to fight to take her and keep her. That is until one night when she walks in the snow and finds 3 sisters who want her help to get back at their lord brother. Pranks lead to danger as one man is taken in and weds a lady he does not know why another come to take her away any way he can. Lady Eleanor I thought was sweet but it does seem the whole world as turned against her. She has been abused and will not take give of herself easy until Alexander shows her how a man should treat a women. She still does not take things as face value for she has seen how sweet and kind men can be when they want something. She knows they will turn on you on a dime when things do not go their way. She is scared that he will turn on her if she gives him the truth he seeks. This causing trouble for them and makes her look guilty at every turn. Can she learn to trust and give what he needs before time runs out and all is lost? Alexander is a man of honor who lives for his family. Times are hard and he does the best he can without giving away just how poor they truly are. When he meets Eleanor he is taken in he see that she is not trusting and has been abused. He wants to make her smile give her a little happiness. His sisters have a plan for him which he knows nothing about until the deed is done and he has little choice but to go along with it. On the day of their wedding he learns so much about her and her lies. He cannot abide by lies and goes to annul their marriage. Eleanor sees things differently as she puts a plan into action to keep the marriage intact. Alexander works towards finding the truth but it might be to late for there is evil all around who is willing to die for the hand of Lady Eleanor. This is the first time I have read/listen to anything by Ms. Delacroix. I found this story to be a delight. She has wonderful characters that you will fall in love with as she gives you a wonderfully captivating listen. There is drama as one women tries to find a safe haven. She gives you sadness that will break your heart and laughter that you will find delightful. The author gives you a compelling store which has adventure, a few thrills and even a chill that you will say OH NO please let this turn out right. She does give you a wonderful HEA but first these characters must fight to stay alive. Here characters you will love as they work their way through trying times. The supporting characters will keep you laughing as each woman are strong and will have their due.

Yes and No................................................................... Yes I believe her father would have married her off at 12 years old. Especially given the fact he did not seem to like her very much. No I do not believe he would have had her taking care of his books and finances. He was an extremely wealthy man. He would have had stewards and accountants of some sort. To say he would let a 12 year old female child do so is ridiculous. Yes I believe sisters play pranks on their brothers. To suggest they would marry him off to a total stranger they no nothing about is just stupid. And to have no remorse when they find this stranger may have murdered her first two husband is selfish and cruel. Yes I believe being abused by her first two husbands made her frightened and frigid. No she did not get over this in 24n hours with a total stranger even if he was sporting enough to marry her. And please the scene where her guardian comes in to check to see if she had a baby. Give me a break. Yes the story had its moments. No I would not recommend it. Over 600 pages. Some of it so moronic you give yourself a headache from eye rolling.

This one was not as good as the first two books in the series. I did enjoy it but was tired of the heroine lying because she was afraid! Such a stupid concept. Anyway enjoyed most of the book and the trilogy was great.
