Melanie
A Lord for the Lass was a phenomenal read about the love story between a woman on the run accused of murdering her husband and the outsider who gives her hope for the future.

Lady Makenna Maclaren Brodie is on the run after being accused of murdering her husband, the laird. While Makenna imagined killing her abusive husband many times, she’s innocent of the crime but is forced to flee with her maid. Makenna goes to the first safe place she can think of only to find Lord Julien Leclerc in

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher/author for the ARC! All opinions are my own.

In this story our heroine, Makenna, is accused of murdering her abusive husband by his even-more-unhinged cousin and flees her clan, seeking shelter at the estate of Lord Julien Leclerc, whom she had met the previous year at her brother's wedding. The story follows her very slow burn with Julien and her development and growth back into the person she was before she married.

Sissy's Romance Book Review
A Lord for the Lass by Amalie Howard & Angie Morgan is book Two in the Tartans and Titans series. This is the story of Lord Julien Leclerc and Makenna Maclaren Brodie. I have read the previous book but feel you can make this a standalone book if you wish to do so.
Makenna is on the run after her husband is murdered looking for a safe place to gather her thoughts and try to come up with a plan. Makenna heads to what she counted on being a safe place that ends up leading her to meet up with

If someone is out to get you where do you turn?
In Makenna’s case she turned to the one man she had faith in Julien .
He’s the one who became her friend, someone she could talk to .
Julien never thought to see her again but is so glad he did until he finds out the reason for her visit .
Another great addition to the series by these talented writers , fun and adventure all the way through .
Great read

I was given this book by netgalley in exchange for my honest review.

From the very beginning to the very end, I was completely wrapped up in this book! I do not know how I haven't read the first book in the series yet. The cover of the book is what drew me in at first, but as soon as I started the first few pages I could not put it down. The storyline was great it flowed so well, the pace of the book was fast and never really slowed down until the very end.

Another wonderful story in the Tartans and Titans series! Whats a woman to do when she is accused of killing her husband, the laird of the Brodie clan? Escape with her maid and get away as fast as possible. Lady Makenna fled to the home of Lord Julien who she had met over a year ago and hoped that he would help her. She knew everyone would be looking for her soon .
I loved Makenna and Julien. The slowly became friends and although the last thing Makenna wanted was another man, Julian slowly was

Good, compelling story, but way too long. I found my interest waning as the story dragged out. The length of time Mackenna took to decide to go seemed odd. The fact that she was only a half day away from her enemies seemed implausible that she wasn't intercepted. The number of times that this couple was interrupted when they were being amorous is amusing and it was surprising it took so long for them to finally cross that line. The authors took too much time describing every single emotion and ...more

A SOLID 3.5 STARS!

MY FIRST BOOK BY AMALIE HOWARD, AND IT WAS ENJOYABLE BUT STILL SOMETHING HELD ME BACK. I CAN'T HELP BUT FEEL THAT IT WAS AN AVERAGE STORY.

Then one night, she comes bursting into his home in a disheveled state, declaring that her husband is dead, yet there is more that she's hiding from him.

This is the second in the Tartans and Titans series and just as enjoyable as the first.

Lady Makenna has been accused of murder and she is on the run. She is unsure of who she can trust and has no money to help her go very far. She can only think of one place to go that may be safe, which is Lord Julien's home (who we have met in book #1). She knows that he is back in France and that there should be no one at his home.

What Lady Makenna doesn't realize is that Lord Julien has just returned to

This book was.. Torture. Gah. I finished this book in one sitting because I was legit biting my nails off at all the drama going on.

I requested an ARC of this book for review from Netgalley because I was going through serious Jamie Fraser and Outlander withdrawals knowing I was sooo close to the new season and when I saw this book and read the summary, I just knew it would stave off some of those feelings but NOPE. Now, Julien is no Jamie Fraser but this French man captured my heart from the

Makenna McLaren Brodie was accused of killing her husband. She had thought about it, he was such an abusive and cruel man. He was not even faithful. Right now she was in a cell under the keep. The new Laird, Colin, was even worse than her husband. He was cruel, envious and so jealous. Someone helped her escape and she ran with her maid who could not stand staying there either. Lord Julien LeClerc and his mother had just moved to Scotland from Paris to Duncraigh Castle. It was a little run down ...more

This was PHENOMENAL!

I loved it from the first page when Makenna was accused of murder, imagine being thrown into jail for a crime you didn’t commit! You have no friends or family near, you’re a woman with no rights, and the new Laird wants to have his way with you, everything is against you.
Escaping the first opportunity she gets she runs to Dunncraigh Castle, knowing that it’s not occupied. She’s surprised when Lord Julien Leclerc greets her and offers his assistance.

I loved Makenna and Julian's story! After reading the first book in the series, I was really hoping that Makenna would be rid of her husband so that she and Julien could make a go of it. You could see the heat between them even then!

Makenna's husband has been murdered and she has been blamed for it. With nowhere else to run, she heads to Julien's home hoping to stay for a few days to gather her thoughts and form a plan. She didn't count on his being in residence when she arrived. She doesn't

In the last book, I thought Julien was a no-care in the world dandy. He proved me wrong in this story. He is strong, loving, kind, gentle, kind of badass with the claymore and definitely not a dandy. His care for the feelings of others including his mother, Malcolm and Makenna make this an outstanding story. Both Makenna and Julien sacrifice and that sacrifice will make you tear up a bit…just saying. The colorful cast of characters from the first story are abundant in this one as well. I really ...more

This was another great read in this series. Makenna and Julien were two strong and engaging characters. Makenna and Julien meet again through unfortunate circumstances. There are a number of different tensions through the book, the sexual tension between Makenna and Julien and the ever present menace of the Brodie laird, Colin. There are a few twists and turns, some exciting action and of course, romance. I’m looking forward to reading the next in the series, hopefully it will be concerning ...more

I loved the scene in the tavern where Makeena dressed as a lad to try and glean information on Brodie. And so when Julien block her view and make her look up. Makeena jaw drop. Julien disguised as a highlander. So hawt!

I ken my own brain, ye amadan. And I ken what I can do. Put me down.” He had, right in the middle of her bed. “What does amadan mean? Love of your life?” “It means idiot.” lol

Book 2 of the Tartans and Titans Series, A Lord for the Lass by Amalie Howard and Angie Morgan is a wonderful read ful of feels and intrigue. This series is a spin-off of the Lords of Essex series.

Howard and Morgan are a writing sensation and I love what they do! Time and time again they bring it...can’t wait to see what’s next!

An ARC was generously provided in exchange for an honest review of which this is both honest and completely voluntary.

Makenna and Julien’s story has been a long time in the making. Julien has been a favorite character of mine from his appearance in a previous book from this author. Both characters are wounded in different ways but are getting a second chance to find themselves. There is lots of intrigue, love and hot Highlander sex appeal. Malcolm and Max are great fun. Everything resolves in surprising ways and Makenna and Julien find lasting love.

Couldn't get into this book somehow, not quite sure why. I thought the heroine refusing to get her (oh so large & capable btw) family involved when she obviously needed help stupid. They turn up at the end and save the day anyway Instead she puts the hero who is only in Scotland for his rather fragile mother's health, at risk together with his mother.

It was obvious who the spy was & that angle was just disappointing.

The connection between Makenna & Julien just didn't work for me.

I received this from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This is book 2 in the Tartans and titans series. In this one we get Mckenna’s Story. She is on the run accused of killing her horrible husband. Julien is a lord who doesn’t believe in love. This makes for a good read. I did enjoy it a great deal and can’t wait until more.

This was an interesting story with well-developed characters with a good plot. I enjoyed the story, but I after a while I found it to be a bit too wordy for me. Even though the story was good it seemed to be drawn out. That is why I gave a 4 star rating. I'm not saying that the story was bad, but it could have been tightened up a bit. All in all a nice story though.

Like the previous books in the series, this book was great! The male protagonist annoyed me at times, but otherwise I really enjoyed it. I felt that the depiction of abuse was also well done. The characters were compelling and I definitely shipped the two main characters.
