How to Lose a Highlander (MacGregor Lairds, #1)

How to Lose a Highlander (MacGregor Lairds, #1)
By Michelle McLean

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.

This is the first time I have read this author.

The story was good and I did read it quick. It didn't bog down, but their plotting against each other got a tad dumb.

I like that he was for the most part pretty nice to her and really didn't get mean unless she was over the top. She was a definite pain and I would have choked the life out of her. I do have to give it to her though she accepted her plight and did make the best of it. The underlying plot though got pushed under the rug and we skipped over what happened when her father got there. We just went straight to epilogue. Didn't like that.

This is rated pretty much PG-13. So if you are looking for some hot highlander loving, it is not here.
