A Reader's Opinion: WAITING FOR THE LAIRD by Willa Blair

Ian must convince Lara she and her twins are the future he truly wants.

Waiting for the Laird by Willa Blair


A contemporary romantic tale with a touch of history . . . and ghosts.

Waiting for the Laird by Willa Blair is a delightful romance and unexpected adventure set in Scotland. Lara MacLaren and Ian Paterson are a well-matched pair, and the author does a nice job building up their romance while they figure out how to deal with life's unpredictable surprises. Ms. Blair has a nice and easy writing style that pulls you into the story and keeps you turning the pages. After getting to know Ian, I wanted to hop on an airplane and head over to Scotland so I could find a laird of my own.

Cairn Dubh Manor is a character all on its own, and I admit I found the old manor as much of a draw in capturing my interest as the story did. Secrets and mystery abound within the walls of Cairn Dubh, and they make the story all the more satisfying. There's not a whole lot more I can say without revealing too many surprises the reader should discover on their own. Developed characters and some interesting and unexpected twists make Waiting for the Laird an enjoyable read.

Widow Lara MacLaren hungers for the hunky architect she hires to restore her derelict Scottish manor, but is she ready for a relationship...and is Ian ready for her twins? Ian Paterson is eager to awaken Lara's passionate side. Yet, if he reveals his ancestral claim to her estate, he risks losing her and his job. His clan’s history, lost over the years, may be hidden in the walls—along with a ghost waiting for the laird's return. When they uncover a room full of Jacobite treasure, proof of his ancestry, Ian realizes he’s out of time. If the ghost is real, it could expose his secret and destroy his romance with Lara. Ian must convince her she and her twins are the future he truly wants.
