Once Upon a Plaid (Spirit of the Highlands #2)

★★★★

20257102[1]By  Mia Marlowe

A wife may be courted, too…

Many would count Katherine Douglas fortunate indeed. Laird William Douglas is broad-shouldered, gentle-handed, everything a lass could dream. But after four years of marriage, Katherine still knows little of what goes on in his heart. And she has yet to bear him an heir. The distance between them is too great—and so she flees over the snowy highlands to Glengarry Castle, home of her childhood, to set her husband free.

But William won’t let his wife slip away without a fight. Before long, he’s at her father’s threshold himself, witness to the rumbles of discontent in Glengarry, the bright joy of Yuletide at a family hearth, and the hidden needs of his own beloved…

My review

More like 3 1/2 stars. I like the book, the writing is good, the suject engaging and the characters likeable, but for some reason I didn’t get pulled in the story and consequently skipped to the last chapter quite quickly. It might be a case of not the right book for my mood today and I will for sure try to read it again in the future (because it promises to be a good book). A quick warning, a big element of the book is the infertility of the heroine which might be a sensitiv issue for some readers.
