The Laird’s Christmas Kiss by Anna Campbell is the 2nd book in the Lairds Most Likely series. This is the classic story of the shy girl who has always had a crush on the bad boy. In the spirit of the holidays and with an extreme makeover, the bad boy finally realizes what was in front of him the entire time. Mix in some mistletoe, add a historical setting and this sums up the delightful relationship between Elspeth Douglas and Brody Girvan.
I am a huge fan of Anna Campbell short stories. She is a talented writer who always packs in lots of heart into her pages. I always know that everything is going to work out so I enjoy the ride and let Anna spin her tale.
There are many characters in this story so I can see this series keeping Anna occupied for a long time. As a devoted reader, this makes me very happy.
A Lairds Most Likely Christmas Novella
Down with love!
Ever since she was fifteen, shy wallflower Elspeth Douglas has pined in vain for the attentions of dashing Brody Girvan, Laird of Invermackie. But the rakish Highlander doesn’t even know she’s alive. Now she’s twenty, she realizes that she’ll never be happy until she stops loving her brother’s handsome friend. When family and friends gather at Achnasheen Castle for Christmas, she intends to show the world that’s she’s all grown up, and grown out of silly crushes on gorgeous Scotsmen. So take that, my gallant laddie!
Girls just want to have fun…
Except it turns out that Brody isn’t singing from the same Christmas carol sheet. Elspeth decides she’s not interested in him anymore, just as he decides he’s very interested indeed. In fact, now he looks more closely, his friend Hamish’s sister is pretty and funny and forthright – and just the lassie to share his Highland estate. Convincing his little wren of his romantic intentions is difficult enough, even before she undergoes a makeover and becomes the belle of Achnasheen. For once in his life, dissolute Brody is burdened with honorable intentions, while the lady he pursues is set on flirtation with no strings attached.
Deck the halls with mistletoe!
With interfering friends and a crate of imported mistletoe thrown into the mix, the stage is set for a house party rife with secrets, clandestine kisses, misunderstandings, heartache, scandal, and love triumphant.
