Janice Preston gets the Loch Legacy series off to a solid start with His Convenient Highland Wedding even though the title is a bit of a misnomer While the wedding in uestion no doubt serves a convenient purpose for the groom this book starts with the heroine and in many ways it is her character arc that pulls the story alongWe first meet Flora McCrieff as a twelve year old girl She’s bright curious and to her frustration disregarded by her traditional and domineering father The idea that a daughter might have an intellect and ideas of her own seems not to matter in this family Left to her own devices Flora goes exploring in a forbidden corner of the castle Among her discoveries is a simple and very old brooch that she keeps as her own Pay attention – this brooch will keep reappearing and it’s going to be important over the course of the series I do suspectThe main story action takes place several years later Now nineteen Flora continues to face complete disregard for her wishes from her family and as the family fortune has declined she now finds herself fairly well forced into marriage In fact she and Lachlan McNeill meet for the very first time at the wedding itself Flora finds herself somewhat comforted to see that her groom is handsome and shows signs of kindness but the situation is still uite strainedReaders will uickly see that a Flora tends to be fairly sensible and b years of crap from her family have pretty much flattened out any inclinations toward flouncing that she otherwise would have had At times particularly in the beginning Flora comes a little too close to being a doormat heroine However readers get just enough glimpses inside her heard to see that she does in fact have a mind of her own She sees her problems and she feels deeply frustrated with the cold emptiness of her marriage loneliness in her new home etc but she lacks the experience to know how to fix the problemsThis is a partial review You can find the complete text at All About Romance

His Convenient Highland Wedding by Janice Preston is the first in a new series “The Loch Legacy” I’ve been anxiously waiting for this series to start since I first heard about it some time ago What makes this series uniue is that there are 4 authors involved and they will each be writing in a different time period going back in time to unravel a mystery Janice Preston starts us off in the Victorian Era Lara Temple follows in book 2 with a Regency Elisabeth Hobbes will have a Tudor story in book 3 Then finally Nicole Locke will give us a Medieval in the 4th and last book in the series Each story will be centered around a Scottish CastleFlora McCrieff is the heroine in this particular story She is the eldest daughter of an impoverished Earl Her father is a tyrant who expects his family to bend to his demands So when her father tells her she will wed a man she’s never seen in two days she really has no other choiceLachlan McNeill grew up in the slums of Glasgow He’s now a rich businessman who is looking for connections to help grow his new whisky distillery He arranges to wed Flora sight unseen hoping that by marrying a lady of the aristocracy it will help ease his way into Scottish society I really loved Flora and Lachlan from the start and was caught up in their story They are good people but complete strangers when they marry So there are lots of struggles to talk and communicate in the beginning They both want from their marriage but struggle with their insecurities to admit it to each other It was evident there was an attraction from the beginning and I like that author Janice Preston gave this couple time to get to know and trust each other letting their love grow gradually This was such a fantastic start to this new series The story was beautifully written with wonderful secondary characters a mystery that will be carried on throughout the series and a couple who stole my heart I would definitely like to revisit these characters at a later date and would love to read the secondary characters stories The mystery is intriguing and has me wanting book two so I can learn about what this is about I would highly recommend this book and look forward to reading of The Loch Legacy 10 stars if I could

His Convenient Highland Wedding The Loch Legacy #1Only that it is perfection A riveting enthralling utterly romantic love story that captures the reader’s attention from the first page and takes you on a beautifully romantic and thrilling journey” Chicks Rogues and Scandals on Lady Olivia and the Infamous Rake“I was completely charmed yet again by Janice Preston’s writing It really is a story to lose yourself in” Rae Reads on Lady Olivia and the Infamous Ra. Though I’m suspicious of new to me authors I was willing to give Janice Preston a try because a MOC is my favourite trope and b the word “highland” in the title always evokes a frisson of excitement and anticipation What I found was an enjoyable uneven romance But first to the plotty detailsBecause His Convenient Highland Wedding is the first of a four book four author series centring around a mystery Preston’s novel opens with a silly scene of the heroine’s discovery of a creepy tower and mysterious brooch Flash forward seven years and heroine Lady Flora McCrieff having refused the lecherous old goat her father had arranged for her to marry important to saving the straitened family estate is in disgrace with fortune and her family’s eyes To make up for her refusal to save the family fortune and marry within her class her father compels her to marry second best wealthy but from lowly beginnings whiskey baron Lachlan McNeill Lachlan is looking to make inroads to the aristocracy for his whiskey and hopes Flora will help him achieve his goal Little does he know Flora is in social purgatory Preston’s romance sees its finest hour in the first half She captures the awkwardness and misunderstanding between two well meaning people who don’t know each other working out physical and emotional intimacy It is to Preston’s credit that she makes it easy to see how Lachlan and Flora may fall into a cool courteous unhappy marriage But it isn’t what they deserve Flora and Lachlan are brimming with the need to love and be loved kind and giving However they were beaten down and have a hard time leaving their reticent shells Lachlan is too much aware of his inferior status his humble beginnings à la Jean Valjean lack of breeding and education Flora is too aware of her family censure which has diminished her and is embarrassed and guilt stricken that Lachlan was promised an influential wife who can’t deliver social sway Thankfully Preston doesn’t make too much of these details but concentrates on the cringe worthy hurts and misconceptions the MOC trope deliversLachlan and Flora are also stiff and humorless and I couldn’t embrace them with liking But I understood their predicament appreciated it and wanted them to resolve their marriage woes and be happy They were deserving if charmless Flora’s dog on the other hand Bandit was an utter charmer and he made every scene better by providing much needed comic relief What worked regarding Flora and Lachlan was how they entered their marriage as unhappy people and how Preston slowly but surely with eually forward movement and missteps brought them closer and gaining in confidence and happiness Unfortunately Lachlan’s secondary narrative his search for a lost family member derailed the romance’s last third It was abrupt and the new character was over the top screechy Her response to Lachlan’s re connection didn’t make sense given the character’s circumstancesThe other problem with the romance’s resolution was what I call the too much happiness factor In the last few chapters there is so much reconciliation that it made for a clunky conclusion There were character turn abouts in response and motivation that give reader whiplash and eye rolls Moreover the insertion of an ominous return to the initial tower mystery felt conveniently thrust into the narrative lest we forget and not read the series Sadly this didn’t work for this reader and she’ll end her relationship with the series at book one thank you very much With Miss Austen we say Preston’s His Convenient Highland Wedding offers “tolerable comfort” Mansfield ParkJanice Preston’s His Convenient Highland Wedding is published by Harleuin Books It releases today April 1st and may be found at your preferred vendor I received an e ARC from Harleuin via Netgalley
