The Laird by Grace Burrowes
He left his bride to go to war...
After years of soldiering, Michael Brodie returns to his Highland estate to find that the bride he left behind has become a stranger. Brenna is self-sufficient, competent, confident-and furious about Michael's prolonged absence.

Now his most important battle will be for her heart
Brenna is also hurt, bewildered, and tired of fighting for the respect of those around her. Michael left her when she needed him most, and then stayed away even after the war ended. Nonetheless, the young man who abandoned her has come home a wiser, more patient and honorable husband. But if she trusts Michael with the truths she's been guarding, he'll have to choose between his wife and everything else he holds dear.

The Laird by Grace Burrowes (9/14)
[Captive Hearts Trilogy - 3] (B Warm)
1815, Scotland Highlands
An Arranged Marriage - Child Abuse - Pedophile - Virgin Heroine (25)

I would say these books need to be read in sequence and would not stand alone very well.


Michael Brodie left his 16-year-old bride to go to war, and left Brenna, now 25-years-old, a Virgin. Michael finally returns as Laird and gently woos Brenna to being his true wife. To say more would be a Spoiler on the plot but there is graphic description of abuse. It's a Dark Romance and I found it repetitive at times. Michael was a secondary character in the previous books.
