When Lady Elizabet Harding’s family is targeted by the notorious Highland Highwayman, she finds herself wounded and an unwelcome guest of the charming outlaw who’d ruined her reputation earlier that day. Elizabet only wants to get even for her family’s downfall, but the more time she spends with the scoundrel, the more complicated her feelings become.

By day, Laird John MacGregor graces the court of Charles II. By night, he exacts revenge on his enemies – one of whom is betrothed to the fiery heiress who has, quite literally, fallen into his arms. The daughter of one enemy and promised to another, Elizabet should be the last person John wants. Yet even as she exasperates him, she is all he has ever desired for himself. When her life is put in danger, he will do anything necessary to protect the women he never expected to love…even if it means they cannot be together.

Each book in the MacGregor Lairds series is STANDALONE:
* How to Lose a Highlander
* How to Ensnare a Highlander
* How to Blackmail a Highlander

Make no mistake, my Scottish romance book loving friends, I like this author’s writing style verra, verra much. She keeps me fully engaged and the words flow seamlessly across the pages. As a lover of relationship angst, I also never get tired of her back and forth banter and a knucklehead at times hero who eventually sees the light and does whatever it takes to keep his lady love.” –A. Klues, Goodreads

“This is one very sweet, exciting read. I loved how this book draws you right into the drama on the very first page. I was completely hooked with John and Elisabets romance. There was so many swoon worthy moments. Not to mention the laugh out loud parts. This was a strong romance that held my attention. There is drama, danger, suspense and of course love.” –Samantha C., Goodreads

“This was such an enjoyable highly entertaining read, loved the dialogue between Elizabet and John, he was everything a honorable hero can be and so sexy in a kilt!” –Maria D., NetGalley

John and Elizabeth are sooo swoony! This was such an exciting, page turning read!” –Erika C., NetGalley

Many twist and turns and intrigue bring this story full circle and you will fall in love with the characters. Looking forward to the rest in this series!” –Lori D., Goodreads

How to Ensnare a Highlander is the second book in the MacGregor Lairds series but it can definitely be read as a standalone. I really liked Lady Elizabet Harding’s character.
