Review For: The Lady and the Highlander 'The Lady and the Highlander' by Lecia Cornwall is book Three in the "A Highland Fairytale' series. This is the story of Laire MacLeod and Iain Lindsay.

The Betrothed Like Ivanhoe, Sir Walter Scott’s The Betrothed takes place in a realm far removed from the immediate concerns of the Holy Land; crusading serves as a narrative frame rather than the primary focus of events.
