Affection for the woman she now called Mother and boredom was what launched Katie Stewart into a life of swindling men out of their money. As a woman stuck in medieval times, she really didn’t have a lot of options. However, it would be not only Katie’s choice but her pleasure to offer herself to the tall, dark stranger who discovered her deception.

Robert Shelley, Laird of Dunham, was seeking Katie for advice on defeating his enemy. The sharp tongued beauty was more than he expected and ignited feelings Robert couldn’t ignore. Even during battle, Robert knew he would return to Katie and make her his forever.

Her Laird, Her Lover is the first story in the Scattered series and I have to say that Sable Grey kicked things off with a bang. I love a woman who can outsmart a man while remaining the seductress and Katie is that woman. Getting stuck in the past might have been a breaking point for most, but not Katie. The firecracker in her helped Katie deal with the backwards thinking and poor hygiene of the men of this era and still keep herself amused while doing so. When finally faced with a man worthy of matching her, it’s no wonder Katie falls for Robert in the blink of an eye. Regardless of his complaints, Robert is turned on by Katie’s boldness. He never misses an opportunity to get her riled up, sometimes accidentally; sometimes intentionally. Robert’s jealousy created some torrid love scenes that made me almost pray for an argument between the couple. The witty comebacks and innuendos from Katie and Robert had me reading the scenes again like an instant replay. However, it was the unspoken words between the couple that really moved me. An understanding was forged after their first night together, even though neither could admit it out loud.

Moments of pain and ardor enveloped me like a blanket on a cold night and reinforced what I already knew. Sable Grey is a master at drawing readers into her stories from the very first page and this one will make you a fan of her work, if you aren’t already.
