      PRE-RELEASE REVIEWPublication date: 29 October 2013 5 Passionate StarsMs Cornick drew me back to the wild Scottish Highlands with her second book in the Scottish Brides series a compelling blend of passion-filled romance and intriguing mystery.Neither of them gave away what really lay beneathBeneath the arrogant, self-assured, confident and charming manner, Jack struggles with feelings of guilt and failure. However misguided, he believes he failed those he loved and blames himself for the death [...]

      A perfect blend of Highlander passion and Regency glamour, this book was a lovely read. The romance, the thrills, the mystery of who was threatening Mairi, it was all wonderful. Loved this romance!Mairi was a strong heroine. Her past is shaded by the scandal of her first husband, whose secret she still keeps. And that has made her wary of putting in trust in someone, let alone falling in love. I really liked her. She wasn't the type to let anyone take her down and no threats were going to change [...]

    • Mummy Cat Claire says:

      Cornick starts her book off with a flash. From the very first page, the reader is swept into a liaison between a laird and a rich widow and a night of passion. I liked the premise of this book. It was a little different from the typical Lord marries an heiress book. Here the laird and lady meet when she seduces him, or the Lady takes charge of the Lord.Which brings me to what I liked about this book. Mairi, the heroine, is quite a character. She is strong willed (hence the red hair and Scottish [...]

      Nicola does it again! I LOVE this book

    • Liv says:

      "One Night with the Laird," followed book 1, "the Lady and the Laird," and let me say, I was excited to get back into the social world of highlanders in the 1800's that Nicola Cornick created. The romance between Lady Mairi MacLeod and Jack Rutherford starts off with a night of anonymous passion that proves to be searing in their ties to one another. Lady Mairi takes a chance and lures a gorgeous man from a masquerade ball to a small private home she owns to escape her present worries and lose h [...]

      As reviewed for The Reading Cafe 14 Dec 13ereadingcafe/one-night-with-the-laird-scottish-brides-2-by-nicola-cornick-a-review/5 out of 5 for this reader folks!OH MY! Nicola Cornick gets a little naughty! I LOVE IT! :)One Night with the Laird is the second book in her Scottish Brides series. We were introduced to Jack in her first book so we already have a taste of his bad boy, tortured soul, attractive and compelling self. I was really looking forward to his book and I feel extremely satisfied wi [...]

    • MelodyMay (What I'm Reading) says:

      Posted on What I'm ReadingYes, I spent most of the day reading One Night with the Laird by Nicola Cornick. Trust me I wasn't going anywhere today partly, because I was kind of sick. That's beside the point, the point is I finished the books I started yesterday. Trust me when I say that this story was a turn page that I couldn't put down. So, we have our hero Jack Rutherford. Jack isn't know for his good qualities. Actually he's a scoundrel of the worst kind, you know the kind that make ladies sw [...]

    • L.A. Miller says:

      What I love about Ms. Cornick's writing is that she had the ability to pull you into the story from the very beginning and never in the book does she lose your interest. Her settings are rich in detail taking you back to another era. Her characters come to life and you feel the emotions they go through both joy and gut wrenching agony. She also brings back characters you fell in love with from the first book and introduces you to the new character from the next book. The hardest part is that aft [...]

    • Margaret Sholders says:

      I enjoy reading Nicola' s books. I have most of her books as they are great to take me away from real life for awhile. I like books about rakes. I like books about damaged women. I loved this book as it has all of the above reasons in it. Nicola writes about the most interesting characters. Jack and Mairi were both wounded from life. They wanted to give up but couldn't even though they disliked their lives. I am so glad they kept trying. She also has a way to developing a mean villain. You reall [...]

    • Tracy Emro says:

      I really enjoyed this book.Mairi and Jack are great flawed characters - they each have their own demons and are both very private people who don't trust easily Watching them fall In love was very entertaining - especially since neither of them wanted to be in love or get married. I thought this book was quite a bit more steamy than other books I have read by Ms. Cornick - but that was fine by me - the hotter the better!!I thought the end of the book was a bit abrupt and things wrapped up too qui [...]

    • Jennifer says:

      Wham, bam, thank your. Loved seeing Mari and Jack again from the first book. I was so excited they hadn't changed. Took me a while to figure out who the bad guy was. Didn't like the ending, it needed more. I hope the third book is Mari and Lucy's big sister, but there were no hints as to who it might be.

      4 stars for this second book in the series Scottish Brides by Nicola Cornick. A very we'll-written story for this regency, with two nice characters: Jack the rake greatly appreciated by the fairer sex and Lady Mairi a widow without considerable fortune left by her previous husband.Between the two the first meeting was a disaster, Jack according to his costume tried to make a move with her during the baptism of Mairi nephew and the woman Made crystal clear, in a glacial way, that she was not inte [...]

      Och!One Night with the Laird is the second book in the Scottish Brides series and the first book byNicola Cornick I've ever read. I have asked this many times: do you ever wonder why you've never read an author before? I do. Nicola Cornick has been around forever well, not forever, but for a long time and I've just never read any of her books. Maybe it's the covers? They look kind of tame, or at least this one does. Maybe it's her name? Nah. Maybe, I've read a review and never been interested? I [...]

      I chose this book expecting a frolic through the heather with a little bit of mystery thrown in for good measure. I didn’t get anything close to that, I got much, much more, and I was so pleasantly surprised by this work of Ms. Cornick that I had trouble putting it down! Lady Mairi MacLeod and Jack Rutherford had an assignation, yet neither knew who the other was, because they had just come from a masked ball. In the morning she finally saw his face and was mortified. He was her sister’s cou [...]

      Originally posted HERE.This is the second book in Nicola Cornick’s Scottish Regency-era ‘Scottish Brides’ series. It works on its own just fine, but I have no doubt you’ll recognise the hero and heroine of the first book when they turn up on the page, and their story is well worth reading.Lady Mairi MacLeod is a widow who lost her husband in secretive circumstances, and Jack Rutherford her brother-in-law’s cousin. They do not get on, not at all, and it is an accidental anonymous one ni [...]

      This is a story of two people with secrets, trust issues, wounded hearts, and feelings of having failed in their lives; all mixed together with a dislike of each other. They spend one night together- Jack not knowing who she is and Mairi not knowing until just before she slips out the door to leave. Jack wants to find the mystery woman and Mairi wants to avoid him at all costs, he makes her feel things she is not prepared, or sure how, to deal with. Mairi is a widow who is confused and inexperie [...]

    • Janga says:

      One Night with the Laird is the second in Cornick’s Scottish Brides series, followingThe Lady and the Laird (Lucy and Robert’s story). It is a more sensual and more suspenseful story than the first book. Cornick’s deft touch with characterization is evident as both Mairi and Jack emerge as fully dimensional, sympathetic characters whose happiness readers root for. Some readers will be pleased to see that Jack’s armor against love is substantial enough not to be melted by lust, however ho [...]

      I was given this book from NetGalley as an ARC in exchange for a honest review. This review can also be seen on chillreviewsMairi MacLeod is a widow. Her husband has been dead for a few years and it seems that the love they had has ruined the thought of her ever marrying again. In truth, things are much more complicated than they seem. Mairi is very strong willed and has been on her own so long that she really doesn't want to deal with a man and his demands anymore. She's drawn to Jack though. S [...]

      Posted at Oh My Books!The second book from the Scottish Brides, One Night with the Laird, follows the story of Lady Mairi MacLeod and Jack Rutherford. Mairi is beautiful and a widow, and Jack is a charming rake. They don't get along at first, but after a wicked and very passionate night they spent together (without knowing they were each other), it's difficult to ignore their desire.But Mairi has other problems beside her desire. She's being threatened by a blackmailer, who is going to divulge s [...]

      In “One Night with the Laird” you get to revisit the “Scottish Brides” series by Mrs. Cornick and this story does not disappoint at all, in fact it gets stronger and more sensually delicious than the first book.In this story we meet Mairi and Jack who are wonderfully developed characters that are full of angst, demons and a past that leaves them quite damaged in most people’s eyes. When they are first put together they do not particularly care for each other’s company but over time t [...]

      “One Night with the Laird” is a follow up to “The Lady and the Laird” and this one takes up the story of Mairi MacLeod, sister to Lucy from the previous novel. In it Jack Rutherford, hard, scarred by the suicide of his mother and the death of sister, blames himself. He has had a serious past drinking problem, but has made his fortune in Canada. He reluctantly returns to England and finds himself at the home of his cousin Robert Methven to celebrate the christening of Robert and Lucy’s [...]

      Review - I wasn't as much of a fan of this one than the previous one in the series The Lady and the Laird or of the last one in the series Claimed by the Laird. I felt that this one didn't really fit with the other two, as the story seemed disjointed in places and the characters (Mairi especially) didn't seem to develop as well as in the others in the series. Nevertheless, a good light read.Genre? - Historical / RomanceCharacters? - Mairi MacLeod / Jack RutherfordSetting? - ScotlandSeries? - Sco [...]

    • Jean Smith says:

      This is a very very adult historical romance fiction. It was well written with several surprises which was very refreshing. I was a little sad at the end that the hero did not have a sword fight with the badge. But, the ending was appropriate to keep the secret that must be kept. Instead it would have been nice if you could of had the tale retold to the father of the heroines first husband. A very powerful romance that explores fully the difference between, lust, sex and love. It is clear that t [...]
