Review of The MacGregor's Lady

THE MACGREGOR'S LADY may be purchased here.

Grace Burrowes

Asher MacGregor has returned to Scotland to accept his responsibilities as the Earl of Balfour and has been volunteered by an elderly relative to squire Hannah Cooper, an American heiress around for her first London season.  Hannah doesn't want a husband, because she desperately wants to return home and thwart her scheming stepfather.  Asher, who is in mourning for his first wife, doesn't seek a spouse, either.  However, as they continue to be in each others company an attraction grows.

THE MACGREGOR'S LADY, while not my favorite book in the MacGregor's series, is a nice addition to the series.  Hannah is a determined, stubborn woman, who will do anything for her family.  However, Hannah's insistence on not marrying, even after she falls in love with Asher, seems rather illogical.  Because of the time period in which Hannah lives, she has few rights and would benefit from Asher's protection as her husband.  Asher, who is still in mourning when he first meets Hannah, is determined to help her. 

All in all, THE MACGREGOR'S LADY is an enjoyable read and a welcome addition to the series.

NOTE:  I received this book in return for an impartial review.
