This addition to the series is nicely paced. It's an engaging read with vivid descriptions.

After losing everything that he is entitled to, Julien worked hard to create his empire. He now concentrates on cashing in on his business. His mother's welfare is the most important aspect of his life.

Makenna has been through a bad arranged marriage. She is now running for her life as she is wrongly accused of murdering her husband.

Julien and Makenna met a year ago and not knowing where to run, she decides to go into hiding in his castle. She thinks that he is in France and doesn't expect him to be in his Scottish residence. When she arrives with her maid, none other than Julien himself greets her and agrees for her to stay. He is not fully aware of the reasons for her escape. He has been drawn to her in the past, but as she was a married, he lived in his fantasies. Does this mean that he has a second chance in exploring what it is about her that intrigues him?

A Lord for the Lass is full of suspense. Whilst Julien and Makenna are getting comfortable with each other, Makenna finds herself in mortal danger on more than one occasion. They suspect that there is a spy amongst them, but knowing who is trying to kill her is difficult.

The relationship between Julien and Makenna is playful. Although, he is not interested in a relationship, he is becoming more and more attracted to Makenna. After everything that she has been through with her husband, Makenna learns how to trust again.

I like Julien's dedication to his mother and how he is willing to sacrifice everything he has for Makenna. Their interactions are fun and their romance is heartfelt. The story ends on a very satisfying note.

I was kindly issued with an eARC from Netgalley and the views expressed are my personal opinion.
