A plain Regency governess

In bed with the Duke!

Part of The Lochmore Legacy: a Scottish castle through the ages! Unceremoniously packed off to Scotland to care for the Duke of Lochmore’s young son, practical widow Joane Langdale fears she will be ignored—as always. But the deep connection and heated passion that develops between her and Benneit is far more dangerous! When Benneit is expected to propose to another, how can Jo dream of becoming his duchess?

Breathtakingly beautiful love story!

Unlaced by the Highland Duke is the second book in “The Lochmore Legacy” series. I’ve been anxiously waiting for this series 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. We first met Joane Langdale (Jo) in the first book in this series by Janice Preston’s “His Convenient Highland Wedding”. I immediately liked Jo and loved her personality in the previous book. So I was excited to hear this book was going to be her story. Jo is the cousin of Benneit’s deceased wife Bella. Being a poorer relation of the Uxmore family she became a companion/servant for them when her husband died. This is how she ends up temporarily becoming a governess for Benneit’s son. Benneit, the Duke of Lochmore is a widower with a young son, Jamie. With the responsibility of the dukedom and trying to secure his son’s future, he has a heavy weight on his shoulders. Knowing that he will be busy for the next few weeks and feeling guilty that he’s been ignoring his son, he reluctantly agrees to allow Jo to accompany them back to Scotland to help with Jamie. I absolutely loved this couple! Their romance was one that came on gradually, definitely not a love at first sight. The way Jo was able to frustrate, embarrass and surprise him had Benneit speechless at times and had me smiling. There was definitely a slow burning, underlying awareness of something between them that both fought for awhile. It was a joy to watch them gradually let down their guard and trust and open up to each other. The romance was beautifully paced and as breathtaking as the lush descriptions of the scenery. Ms. Temple didn’t hold back with this one, it’s definitely one of her best books to date! With fabulous secondary characters, a mystery that connects this series and a breathtakingly beautiful love story it truly is perfect! I highly recommend this book along with the entire series! Loved it!

Lara Temple is incomparable.

I've struggled for days trying to put into words just how I feel about this book. The one word that keeps coming back to me is incomparable. It is incomparable to anything I've ever read, the sheer exquisite beauty of this novel just left me speechless - I love this book speechless! Lara Temple's writing is like no other, she, like this book, is incomparable to me. This is one of the finest examples of a regency romance ever written. Just perfection, with every possible minuscule detail accurate. From the costumes to the language used, the scenery described - it all just builds this vivid picture in the readers head. If you closed your eyes you could be transported to this world that Lara has helped create. Jo and Benniet are perhaps an unlikely couple in the world of historical M&B. Both have a past, both are widowed and both have baggage of some sort. This was something I really enjoyed reading because it felt real, their love felt very realistic in its pacing and the interactions between the two. The simmering tension between them can be felt off the page and as a reader it was satisfying to see them grow closer. They are two very loveable characters you root for, you want them together and you know once they do it would end in an explosive frenzy -- and boy does it ever! Lara Temple writes love scenes wholeheartedly giving her characters what they crave, what they deserve, what they need. It works and I am left in awe with how Lara Temple can make me as a reader love the people who have lived in her head. Really I'm in complete awe of everything about this, author, characters, setting, plot - everything. This was a magical read and one that will stay with me for a very long time, one I will come back to when I feel alone or just want to feel what true love is like.
