Her Laird, Her Lover by Sable Grey

Her Laird, Her Lover by Sable Grey
* I received a copy of this book from Breathless Press in exchange for an honest review*

Scottish border lord Robert Shelley doesn’t believe that the blind woman has the gift of knowing, and quickly learns that his suspicions are correct, but what he doesn’t expect is the searing lust she ignites inside him.

Katie Stewart has been swept back into medieval time and has adjusted the best way she knows how—by conning her way into enough coins to survive. She’s content with her life until a big Scotsman walks into her cottage and seizes her heart, making her want more than just his gifts and the occasional romp. Katie wants him—forever.

Because of an accident, Katie is sent back to a time when men ruled the world and were “stinky.”  Magda, an old crone saves her from death and together the two come up with a plan to survive.  Katie doesn’t feel bad about their ruse until Robert Shelley shows up on their doorstep.  He’s handsome, smart and she wants him for her own.

Robert Shelley stops at the cottage of the “blind” seer on his way home.  She warns him of an upcoming battle and how to be victorious over his enemy.  He is suspicious of her and decides to stick around.  He finds her at the lake and learns the truth from her.  He is instantly drawn to her like no other, she is sharp and witty and is not afraid of him. 

Over the course of a few months you see their love blossom.  They each have their own life but it keeps intersecting because the Laird can’t get enough of her. Katie is doing the best she can to deal with the situation she is in.  She is so out of her element, she misses modern conveniences and mostly men that bathe regularly.  She lost her mother when she was younger and Magda has helped her get over that loss. 

Robert lost his wife in childbirth and didn’t think he’d ever love again.  He is a Border Laird, charged with keeping their borders safe.  If he was in modern times, you could say he’s married to his job.  Katie intrigues him, he wants her for his own and is pleased when she tells him he is the only one for her now.

The story is short but well paced with just the right amount of description regarding characters, places and events.  You are drawn into their world from the beginning and can sympathize with Katie.  I don’t know what I would do without my modern gadgets (Iphone, computer, baths, etc).  Over all I really enjoyed this story and can’t wait for the second book in this series.  I give the story 3 1/2 Flaming Hearts.
