Janice Preston is one the nicest authors, that will openly engage on Twitter to all fans, oh, and one other state of fact Janice is exceptionally good at writing historical romances with vibrant characters together with plots that are easy to follow and understand. Lady Flora McCrieff is certainly a brave young lady, searching in part her castle where she shouldn't be exploring. It gave me the creeps as she's goes looking around and finds a brooch, that's also my favourite part of jewellery. Whe ...more

In the interests of transparency I should start with a disclaimer that I have an interest in this book because I'm one of the other authors involved in the Lochmore Legacy continuity. HOWEVER - this in no way colours my opinion of this book (other than a staggering sense of relief that it is so damn good and means readers will be gagging for the next one in the series).

Married for the money he'll bring to her family and the access to society she'll bring him, Lachlan and Flora make an appealing

Wow Janice Preston has definitely got this series off to a brilliant start. I mean who doesn't love Scotland, the way Ms Preston described the scenery I could see it in my head, it was like seeing a photo. And we have men in kilts, and who doesn't like that. From the moment Lachlan and Flora first meet oh my goodness the chemistry between them is just electric.

For me this is one of those books, that is a definite page turner and I just loved everyone in the book, well apart from Flora's parents,

Lady Flora McCrieff's life had not been easy because of her tyrannical father, the Earl of Aberwyld. After she refused a duke's marriage proposal a year before, Flora's relationship with her father deteriorated further. Flora didn't know how precarious the family finances were when she was told she had to marry a wealthy businessman, Lachlan McNeill. Lachlan wants to grow his whisky business, and to do so, he needs a well-connected wife, and Lady Flora is just that. As long as she asks no questi ...more
His Convenient Highland Wedding by Janice Preston is the first in a new series “The Lochmore Legacy”. I’ve been anxiously waiting for this series to start since I first heard about it some time ago. What makes this series unique is that there are 4 authors involved and they will each be writing in a different time period going back in time to unravel a mystery. Janice Preston starts us off in the Victorian Era. Lara Temple follows in book 2 with a Regency. Elisabeth Hobbes will have a Tudor stor ...more

Janice Preston is a virtuoso of words. She magically transforms her characters with such skill that mesmerizes you in an instant. His Convenient Highland Wedding is a story of family, scandal and fortune. It encompasses pain, growth and passion. It is reliably entertaining and masterfully crafted and I couldn’t help but get lost in the journey Lachlan, Flora and the vibrant secondary cast took me on. A stellar read from start to end!

Highly Recommended

Janice Preston is on fire! This was one of the best books I’ve read this year. The overreaching arc is something that interested me about this series and it didn’t disappoint. I am on the edge of my seat to see where this story will go.

I just adored both the heroine and hero — especially the hero. Lachlan has ruined me for all men be them real or in books. He’s just such a well written character, born of low birth but with the ambition to rise from his past he really did pull at my heartstrings.

Oh, my goodness me!! This is ridiculously good. No, good isn’t the right word to describe just how brilliant this book is; definitely more along the lines of sensational. I shouldn’t be surprised seeing who the author is, Ms Preston is a favourite author of mine, I knew that I would be in for a great story, but this is really something special, and I can honestly say that this is my favourite of all of Ms Preston’s work, it really is astonishing how good this is.

Though I’m suspicious of new-to-me authors, I was willing to give Janice Preston a try because: a) MOC is my favourite trope and b) the word “highland” in the title always evokes a frisson of excitement and anticipation. What I found was an enjoyable, uneven romance. But, first, to the plotty details!

Because His Convenient Highland Wedding is the first of a four-book, four-author series centring around a mystery, Preston’s novel opens with a silly scene of the heroine’s discovery of a creepy tow

This was such a good read, very likeable main characters in Lady Flora McCreiff and Lachlan McNeill. They came from completely different backgrounds, Lachlan was a self made man and Flora was the daughter of an earl. Flora felt that she was ignored in her family and although she had ideas for improving the family’s wealth, her father wouldn’t listen to a female. In Lachlan, Flora found a man who would listen to her ideas. Lachlan was a character I couldn’t help but like, he had been through so m ...more

I have only recently started to read historical Mills and Boon mainly due to local author Elisabeth Hobbs who is an amazing writer of books that are full to the brim with realistic characters and authentic historical detailing, not to mention some beautifully crafted relationships. When I heard that her latest book was to be part of a series called The Lochmore Legacy, I was intrigued enough to want to read ALL the books in the series and not just hers! And so I have started at the beginning wit ...more

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 f

This is the first book in the The Lochmore Legacy series, which centres on Lochmore Castle through the ages! Earl’s daughter Flora McCrieff brought shame on her family once when she refused to marry a lecherous Duke, now she discovers she must enter a marriage of convenience with the impossibly rich but low born Lachlan McNeill. Following their wedding they return to his home Lochmore Castle which he bought a year ago.

Well I was sat here thinking about how to write this review and I just kept on smiling because that is how gorgeous this story was. I was instantly transported to Scotland and it really made for a stunning setting as we meet Flora and Lachlan. Their first meeting is unusual but even from that first moment there is a wonderful chemistry between the pair which is built perfectly throughout by Janice Preston. Flora has such a warm and likeable personality along with a determined edge, I couldn’t he ...more
Terrific start to the new series. I was hooked from the beginning and read the book in one sitting. It opened with a young Flora, frustrated by her father's attitude toward her, dealing with her frustration by exploring an area of her home that was expressly forbidden. She paid for that disobedience with the horrifying discovery of a skeleton hidden in the tower and was unable to talk about it for fear of the repercussions. Two things she brought away from the experience was a silver brooch foun ...more

“Grudges live long in the Highlands…”

The Lochmore Legacy series begins with this excellent opener from Janice Preston.

Flora McCrieff has never met Lachlan McNeill, and doesn’t even know his name until she meets him at the altar on their wedding day. Having rejected a proposal from the Duke of Galkirk the year before, Flora’s father, desperate for financial aid, arranges for his eldest daughter to marry successful businessman Lachlan on the promise of him providing dowries for his other daughters

As reviewed at Roses Are Blue:

The LOCHMORE LEGACY is an interesting series of four books which take place in different eras, but involve the same mystery. Rather uniquely, the stories start in the Victorian era, and each book goes backward in time, and reveals another piece of the puzzle. In book one, Flora McCrieff discovers a shocking secret in her family home. It’s something she can’t ask anyone about, as she was somewhere she was forbidden to be. Her marriage home lea

I have been looking forward to the Lochmore Legacy series ever since I heard that four of my favourite historical romance authors had teamed up to write four books in different eras with a common theme.

Janice Preston's Victorian-era story is a great series opener. Flora and Lachlan bring a lot of baggage to their union. They are strangers when they marry and their route to happiness is a wonderful tale. They both trip over their baggage multiple times on their journey and their HEA is oh so sati

Set mainly in the Scottish Highlands and West coast, this story is full of rich imagery that makes it easy to visualise both the setting and the time period this story is set in.

The slums of Glasgow and Edinburgh form part of the story, and the poverty and deprivation found there in Victorian times, set against the riches of the lairds and the aristocracy is one of the elements covered in this interesting story.

This is the first story in the Lochmore Legacy, which written by four different histo

His Convenient Highland Wedding by Janice Preston is book One in The Lochmore Legacy Series. This is the story of Flora McCrieff and Lachlan McNeill.
Flora turned down a Duke's marriage proposal which set her father off and open her eyes to their family need for money. Lachlan is looking to get his whisky business to do better and he needs a wife that has the connections to open some doors for him. Lachlan is willing to marry Flora site unseen due to her family connections, but of course the spar

This is book 1 of the Lochmore Legacy and I'm hooked already!! What a splendid job Janice Preston did with this start of the series. So many emotions went through me while I was reading, my heart really went out to Flora and Lachlan!

While I did not give it five stars for a small reason, this was a wonderful read. Had elements that were unexpected. Characters you could like and enjoy and written in a fashion that makes the reader want more. I had some frustration at times for I felt it needed a little boost in life but the overall story and the creative mind and writing of the author saved it to be a very good read.

Let's just take a second to admire the cover. Now, let's take a minute and freak out at the fact that a new Historical Romance series is here. Yeah... That's what I did when I found out about this series and book. You all know I love Historical Romance, especially Janice Preston's since she introduced me to this amazing genre with her book. Than been said, of course I was very excited about this all series because of the amazing authors that rote the books.

Overall, this story of Flora and Lachlan was very good and captivating. But I gave it 4 stars rather than 5 because the author neglected to solve the mystery of the skeleton in the tower, the empty tomb and Flora’s brooch. Too many loose ends with these details and it just bugs me that the author leaves these details of the story just hanging.
