Read The Laird Takes a Bride (The Penhallow Dynasty, #2) Online Free -
Lisa Berne’s Penhallow Dynasty series continues as a Highlander marries against his will —
and discovers he may have found the perfect bride.
Alasdair Penhallow, laird of his clan and master of Castle Tadgh, is forced to end his carefree bachelorhood, thanks to an ancient decree that requires him to marry. But Alasdair’s search for a biddable wife comes to a screeching halt when Fate serves up Fiona Douglass. Prickly as a thistle, Fiona challenges him at every turn, rendering herself surprisingly irresistible. Her love would be a prize indeed . . . if Alasdair could accept it.
Fiona gave her heart once, and doesn’t plan to repeat that folly. Yet she finds herself drawn to Alasdair’s intelligence and strength, and the passion he incites goes well beyond her expectations for what’s only a marriage of expedience. Despite herself, she’s falling in love with her husband.
But there’s a high wall between them — and Fiona’s not sure it can ever be torn down.

The Laird Takes a Bride is my first book by Lisa Berne, but I was pleasantly surprised. A true Scottish historical (not a Regency disguising itself as Scottish), this marriage of convenience story definitely provides a different spin on the trope.
Fiona has had her heart broken, and she...

'The Laird Takes a Bride' by Lisa Berne is Book Two in "The Penhallow Dynasty" series. This is the story of Alasdair Penhallow and Fiona Douglass. I have not yet read the previous book, so for me this was a standalone book.
Fiona has lost her heart once and she swore she would never give it away...

The Laird Takes A Bride is the second book in the Penhallow Dynasty and this is where we have Alasdair's book so I was pretty eager for this one, because I adored his character in the first book "You May Kiss The Bride".
In The Laird Takes A...

I honestly don't remember Alasdair much from the first book but I know I was excited to see he'd be getting his own HEA. He was a great guy that respected Fiona and her wishes even if he didn'...

Tonally, this was really different from the first book - much more serious & character vs shenanigans focused - but I very much enjoyed and was almost surprised by how much. I don’t normally like quieter marriages of conveniences, but this had just the right balance of drama and romance, and...

Fiona Douglass has just watched another of her sisters get married. At the age of twenty-seven, she’s considered a spinster, and is happy to be so. Her one venture into romance ended disastrously for her. She was in love with, and all but engag...

I'm such a sucker for historical romances, especially ones set in Scotland. This one was an. . . interesting one compared to others I've read as the romance wasn't star-crossed lovers style so much as a forced arrangement that turned into something more.
I'll be honest, the marriage between Alasda...
