Caitlyn Hurst cannot control her temper and her passionate nature, especially around Alexander MacLean. Unfortunately, it got way out of control during her first London season, causing all of the ton to wag their tongues about herself and Alexander. Things got bad, but luckily her twin sister and his brother were there to keep the embarrassment at a minimum. However, Alexander is really ticked off and he wants to exact his revenge on Caitlyn for the “pain” she has caused himself and his family.
After leaving London, Caitlyn is stuck in the country for three continuous months. Her mother is refusing to let her out of her sight for a moment of air. So now she is mysteriously invited to a house party at the house of a duchess she does not know. This is her big chance to clean up her family name and to prove her own self control.
Alexander McLean has his ex-lover, the duchess, to invite little Caitlyn to this house party so that he can ruin her. The problem is he has forgotten how attracted he was to her and how badly he wanted to possess her. When they finally meet they agree to a wager of each doing three acts from an old King Arthur story. Evil duchesses, over amorous suitors, and a supportive servant staff makes this three weeks neither one of the them will ever forget, and maybe change the course of both of their lives.
The Laird Who Loved Me is an upbeat humorous read. It is definitely a page turner. The different tasks Caitlyn and Alexander have concocted for each other will have you laughing out loud. Hawkins delivers a story that is both funny and sensual. I had tooo much fun reading this story.
