I love to read and I love to read Romance. Any kind of romance. Although, I always come back to Historical Romance. I'll also read Urban Fantasy, Historical Mysteries and Historical Fiction.

The Laird by Sandy Blair

The Laird (A Castle Blackstone Novel) - Sandy Blair

I always have had a soft spot for time travel romances. I can't explain it, I just love them. So I am always glad to find another good one. This is a good one. The characters are likable and although the plot itself isn't unique, it is well done and romantic. 

 

One of the hardest things for me in time travel romances is usually the heroine. If a modern heroine goes back in time and she acts like a shrew, it ruins the whole book for me. So really many times it rests on her head basically. 

 

The heroine here is likable and although she has some quirks she brings with her from modern times, they aren't over the top and annoying. Now we are being a bit clunked over the head with how plain the heroine is. Poor thing, the hero as ghost calls her plain as porridge and when she goes back and of course the hero doesn't know anything about her or the future where he was a ghost, he still calls her plain as porridge. :). So, she's plain in case you didn't get that the first 10 times.  

 

The hero is a great hero also. He starts as a ghost in modern times, prowling his castle after being cursed back in his day. The curse plot line is pretty much dropped so no clue why or who cursed him. So that was a bit confusing, but since the early ghost bits in modern time are so short anyway, it didn't really bother me. 

 

So the heroine goes back in time to 1408 in this one. 

 

I am definitely going to read the others in this series by Sandy Blair.
