About The Winter Laird

Successful matchmaker Brianagh O’Rourke believes in happily-ever-afters...just not her own. She’s convinced passion only exists in her dreams. When she reluctantly accepts a marriage proposal, Bri decides she needs a vacation—but she didn't expect it to be in 13th century Ireland.

Laird Nioclas MacWilliam just wants peace for his clan. The time for him to marry has come, and after waiting years for his ally to present their daughter, he’s agreed to marry another. But on the eve of his nuptials, a daring rescue brings his missing betrothed right into his arms.

And she does not want to be there.

Brianagh has to return to the future. Nioclas has to marry. He offers a solution for the both of them: She marries him and stays for three months, and they work together to convince his clan they are a love match. In return, he vows to safely return her home. But as the days turn to weeks, they both begin to see what a happily-ever-after could be. And when the time comes, does Brianagh return to the life she’s built, or does she remain in the past for a chance at true love?

What Did I Think About The Winter Laird?

This book is definitely is one of those books that quietly and steadily sucked me into the story. I could not help but like Brianagh, the main character and heroine of our story. For fans of Outlander, this book could fulfill there need for another strong-willed time traveling female lead. However, fans who might have **blushed** too much with Outlander, this is a clean romance--but do not let clean full you. There is so much heat and chemistry in this story, you won't be left feeling lackluster.

This is the first book in a new series and by the end of this book, I did not want to let the characters go. I am excited to say that there are more books coming next year!! I am looking forward to seeing what has happened to Bri and Nioclas as well as their extended friends and family--the characters were that likable.
