Bought by her husband…

Bound by secrets of their past!

The start of The Lochmore Legacy—a Scottish castle through the ages! Earl’s daughter Flora McCrieff brought shame on her family once. Now she discovers she must wed impossibly rich but lowborn Lachlan McNeill. He’s undeniably handsome, but a man of few words. Despite the attraction that burns between them, can she reach beyond his impeccable clothing to find the emotions he’s locked away for so long?

The Lochmore Legacy collection

Book 1 — His Convenient Highland Wedding

Book 2 — Unlaced by the Highland Duke by Lara Temple 

Book 3 — A Runaway Bride for the Highlander by Elisabeth Hobbes 

Book 4 — Secrets of a Highland Warrior by Nicole Locke


Lachlan McNeill May be insanely rich, but he came from a lowly status. When he weds an Earl’s daughter, Flora McCrieff, he knows having her on his arm will open a lot of doors for him. Flora once denied a Duke, and now she is married to Lachlan. Flora desperately wants love and family, and truly hopes that being bound to Lachlan will fulfill those desires.

It is business first for Lachlan - mostly. He has another serious matter that also requires his time and attention. With everything going on for him, he has very little room for emotion. Also, Lachlan has experienced a difficult and painful past and this he feels he must keep secret from Flora.

As things progress, Flora and Lachlan eventually draw together, but it was never easy for them to do. They both have amazing strengths and it will take some doing for each of them to realize that. Kudos to Janice Preston for writing such powerful characters.

This touching story introduced deep and abiding live to two deserving people. Meanwhile the importance of family easily flowed throughout the pages. All in all this was a marvelous read, and a great start for what is certain to be a promising series.

His Convenient Highland Wedding is the first book in the Lochmore Legacy series. Interestingly, these books take pace across different eras. The other titles are, in order - Book 2, Unlaced by the Highland Duke by Lara Temple, Book 3, A Runaway Bride for the Highlander by Elisabeth Hobbes and Book 4, Secrets of a Highland Warrior by Nicole Locke.

Many thanks to Harlequin and to NetGalley for this ARC to review in exchange for my honest opinion.


Hello, and welcome to my little corner of the internet. I’m Janice and I write emotional, sensual and satisfying Regency romances for Harlequin Mills and Boon (HMB) Historicals. My first novel, Mary and the Marquis, was published on 1st August 2014.

As a child, I loved to write stories – usually about animals – and I told anyone who would listen that I wanted to be an author when I grew up. Somehow, that early ambition was lost during those awkward teenage years, but I never lost my love of reading, and my fascination with history, and with the Regency period in particular, was fuelled by the novels of Jane Austen and Georgette Heyer. There was something about those sexy alpha males on horseback (I was a big fan of Westerns too!) that never failed to set my heart racing!

After a hectic life as a farmer’s wife and mother of two, my desire to create my own stories resurfaced and I began to write. I am a member of the Romantic Novelists’ Association and, through their excellent New Writers’ Scheme, my third attempt at a Regency romance for HMB – Mary and the Marquis – was accepted for publication, thus fulfilling my childhood ambition.
