Eilidh and Max were first introduced to me in A Laird in London, and what I learnt of them in this book solidified my thoughts on them.
Eilidh is a fun, gracious woman of her time who wants to find a good husband, but also doesn’t want to let her people or her brother down. While she tries to do right by everyone around her, she doesn’t expect much in return, especially when she accidentally says what she’s meaning without taking a moment to think first.
Max is a a-typical second son of the Ton. While he certainly behaves as such, he has ambitions to more in life, even if he’s not sure what that looks like just yet. Since his brother has refused him the opportunity to work and discover what he’s passionate about, he has no direction to follow and therefore goes where opportunities arise to discover what life might offer him.
The first portion of the storyline follows Eilidh’s time in London which as get in more detail in A Laird in London but from the perspective of Eilidh and Max in their rare interactions. However, where A Laird in London ends, we continue with much more detail following as Max discovers what it means to be a Laird and do right by his tenants, and Eilidh.
I really enjoyed getting Eilidh and Max’s perspective, especially since it had a little bit of a crossover with A Laird in London. While I don’t normally like books that repeat the same time periods, in this case, we get a very different perspective, it’s highly truncated and it almost explains all the oddity’s I picked up on in A Laird in London.
And of course then the gorgeous Scottish highlands!
The descriptions were so amazing I found myself Googling where they ended up trying to see if pictures could match the magical feeling of the place Catherine gave me. While most didn’t, I could see the hint of it that made me think it’s one of those things where you truly have to be there to feel it. Which is exactly the emotions Max was described as going through.
I definitely think I need to go back and grab A Laird for the Governess just to get more of the Scottish landscape and the people of this unique area.
