A Reader's Opinion: HOW TO LOSE A HIGHLANDER by Michelle McLean

Updated: Feb 3, 2020



Warring clans, an unwanted marriage, and an unexpected romance! With a touch of humor and a little adventure, there's a lot to enjoy in HOW TO LOSE A HIGHLANDER. Sorcha Campbell is forced to marry Malcolm MacGregor, a member of a feuding clan. They want nothing to do with each other, but by the king's order they marry. Of course, they're going to have to work for their happily-ever-after. Their bickering and attempts to outdo each other and try to rid themselves of their unwanted marriage are entertaining. As time passes, they each come to understand that maybe the other person isn't as bad as they first thought. Each has admirable traits, but can they forgive past wrongs and misconceptions? Can they see beyond their prejudices? Sorcha wasn't my favorite character on her own, but when bickering with Malcolm, she was fun. The romance was sweet, tender, and wasn't as graphic as I expected, which was nice. The story is well written, and the reader will find reasons to laugh and love in HOW TO LOSE A HIGHLANDER.

Sorcha knows she can never let her guard down around the man she believes betrayed her father, yet the longer she’s with him, the more she discovers he is nothing like she was led to believe. They’ll have to fight their way through past prejudices and their own determination to destroy their union in order to gain their perfect HEA in this Taming of the Shrew meets How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days tale.
