The MacGregor's Lady by Grace Burrowes

The MacGregor's Lady (MacGregor Trilogy, #3)
Release date: February 4, 2014
Publisher: Sourcebooks Casablanca
Genre: Historical (Victorian/Highlander) Romance
Series: MacGregor Trilogy #3

Asher MacGregor has returned from years wandering the Canadian wilderness to assume an earldom he’s avoided, and to seek a bride he does not want. He’s saddled with an additional family obligation in the form of Boston heiress Hannah Cooper, whom he is to escort about the London ballrooms so she might find an English husband.

Hannah is no more interested in settling in Britain than Asher is in returning to the New World, and yet their sympathy for one another soon turns to passion. With Hannah anxious to return to the family she’s trying to protect in Boston, and Asher bound to his earldom in the Highlands, they must trust in love to span an ocean of differences and difficulties.

My Rating: 3 Roses

A sweet and lovely historical romance, The MacGregor's Lady was a wonderful read. I really enjoyed reading this book. It was a wonderful conclusion to a great series.

Hannah was a good heroine. She wasn't the type to live the way others told her to live and she was very loyal to her loved ones. That was also a problem, though. I liked that she was so devoted to her family, but it frustrated me that she could see no alternative but to return home, when there were other solutions to be had. It was irritating because her stubbornness hurt Asher and that man was nothing but sweet. It was a bother, but it wasn't a huge problem. I still really liked Hannah, particularly when she came to her senses. She was a lovely heroine.

Asher was a total sweetheart. He was so wonderful. I loved how determined he was to win Hannah over and how loyal he was to his family. I thought he was just perfect.

The romance was sweet. Hannah and Asher were a lovely couple. Even when it seemed liked things wouldn't work out for them, their feelings were never in doubt. And there was chemistry between them from the moment they met, which led to some steamy scenes. I thought they were great together.

Since this book is set in the late Victorian era, we get to see our old favorites, the Windhams, years after their story concluded. It was fun seeing how everything turned out for them and I thought it was a nice touch.

The plot was okay. The pace was a bit slow and there were some parts that dragged a bit. It wasn't enough for me to get bored, but it was enough that I couldn't get totally drawn in to the story. But, I still really liked the story and I thought it was a wonderful conclusion to the MacGregor Trilogy.

The MacGregor's Lady was a lovely historical romance. I really enjoyed reading it. Lovers of romance, this is a book you might want to check out.
