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. ...more

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.

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. The plot of marrying to raise yourself in society while not a new one was carried ou ...more
