VIRTUAL TOUR: How to Lose a Highlander by Michelle McLean



Synopsis:

Forced into marriage by their king in order to stop years of inter-clan feuding, Sorcha Campbell and Malcolm MacGregor are each determined to drive the other away.

Malcolm knows he can never trust his new shrewish wife, despite the fact that everything he observes seems to prove that she’s not only trustworthy, but utterly perfect for him.

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.

MY REVIEW

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

4 out of 5 stars

How to Lose a Highlander was an enjoyable historical romance! I was originally expecting the book to be more serious, but in reality it was really sweet and lighthearted and I really enjoyed that about this book. Also, I don't know why I love historical romances with forced and arranged marriages so much, but I do and this book was a really great example of the trope. I loved the way that the author set up everything with how Sorcha and Malcolm met before the king made his decision and kissed without knowing who the other was. Having that happen really laid the groundwork for me to become invested in their relationship and root for them from the very start even when they were scheming about how to get out of the marriage. And talking about their scheming it really made for some humorous situations that I really enjoyed, but of course the highlight for me was the way in which these two moved passed the scheming and the hating each other and actually fell in love. Their love story was really wonderful and I honestly couldn't get enough of it! All in all this was really good start to this series and I highly recommend it!!
