A need to belong drives her. A longing to forget compels him. Fate may send them into each other's arms, but only love can mend their hearts.
Raised by a tyrannical father, Marion de Lacy yearns for the comfort of belonging to a loving family. So when her father announces her betrothal to an evil knight in exchange for his help to overthrow the king, she concocts a desperate scheme to avoid the marriage: feigning her own death and then fleeing England. But when her plan goes terribly awry and she's captured by the knight, not even her careful preparations could ready her for the Scottish barbarian who rescues her and then informs her that he's to marry her by edict of her king. Certain her father will defy the king's orders and wed her to the knight if she refuses the Highlander's hand, Marion agrees to marry the strangely compelling but obstinate laird of the MacLeod clan.
After the death of his beloved wife, Iain MacLeod has no desire to marry ever again. Yet when he finds himself obliged to do so to secure the freedom of his childhood friend and king, he reluctantly travels across England to collect his unwanted bride, expecting to find a cold Englishwoman. Instead, he discovers a fiery, bold beauty who is fiercely loyal, protective of those she loves, and defies him at every turn, challenging his certainty that his heart is dead.
Following a hasty marriage and perilous journey to Scotland, Marion harbors no illusions that her new husband loves her. Still, her heart cannot resist the noble, brave warrior, and she cannot suppress the hope that she has finally found where she belongs. However, the harder she tries to fit in with the clan and gain Iain's love, the farther away her dreams drift. Iain is more than willing to give his respect to his courageous wife - her kisses and caresses even ignite his blood and demand his passion - but he refuses to give up his heart.

A Little DeJaVu.....But Great!
- 🐰DARA "💙 A Good Story Epecially w/Romance🔹Audiobooks+Work=Adventures 💫 Enjoy Listening, Debating, & Reviewing with My Book Club🔹No Spoilers 🙊"
NOT A HAPPY STORY!!! HERIONE SUFFERS TO MUCH ABUSE
A better storyline. Not so much physical abuse done to Marion the heroine!!
He was a good narrator but nothing new or special
I am sorry to say I did not like When A Laird Loves A Lady!! The storyline was not appealing to me at all.
Lady Mairon de Lacy has been order by her father Baron deLacy to marry Sir William Froste. A man she can't abide. After pleading with her father and he ruthlessly beating her Marion fakes her death.
Iain MacLeod has tried in vain to gain the release of the Scottish King David from his imprisonment in England. King Edward of England has demanded that Iain marry Baron de Lacy's daughter Marion. Kind Edward believes that de Lacy and Froste are planning to take over the throne. So he must stop the marriage that will forge and alliance between de Lacy and Froste.
Poor Marion has been unloved and beaten by her father all her life and now she must marry Iain Laird of Clan MacLeod. Iain vows to be kind to her but he will never love her. Iain loves his dead wife Caitriona and has vowed never to forget her. I don't like 3rd party marriages and Catriona is a constant character between Iain an Marion. He never lets Marion forget he loves his dead wife. This pre occupation with a dead women and the constant reminder of her went on way to far in the story, to the end. Marion suffers untold amounts of physical abuse through the story first at the hands of her father, then at the hands of Froste, and then at the hands of his men. Oh and lets not forget the abuse she suffers once she and Iain get to his castle. She is poisoned and treated badly by Catriona's sisters.
Come on how much Abuse was the heroine suppose to endure? This was not a happy story. I hated Iain for most of the story and Marion was just a weak women who accepted her abuse by everyone around her. I Cannot Recommend When A Laird Loves A Lady!! Sorry!!
