The Highlander Takes a Bride by Lynsay Sands
Releasing July 28, 2015
About the book:
A bold, seductive laird meets his passionate match in a scintillating Highland romance from New York Timesbestselling author Lynsay Sands…
Sword fighting, swearing, and riding astride come naturally to Saidh Buchanan. Simpering and holding her tongue—definitely not. Raised alongside seven boisterous brothers, Saidh has little interest in saddling herself with a husband… until she glimpses the new Laird MacDonnell bathing naked in the loch. Though she’s far from a proper lady, the brawny Highlander makes Saidh feel every inch a woman.
She has an angel’s looks, a warrior’s temper, and seeks out his kisses with wanton eagerness. Little wonder that Greer is intrigued by his comely guest. When reckless desire overtakes them, he’s more than willing to make an honest woman of her. But Saidh is the target of a hidden enemy, and Greer faces the battle of his life to safeguard the woman he wants above all others.
I have to say after not being that impressed with the one Argeneau book I read I wasn’t sure what to expect with her historical romances but I’ve really enjoyed them! Saidh is such a fun character. She swears, can handle a sword and has a pack of brothers who made me laugh. She was much more unconventional than even the other independent heroines you usually find in stories like this and I was eager to see what she would do next. There was just a minor moment of a real lapse in judgment that made me shake my head at her but over all I loved her. Greer was also likeable but nothing stood out about him that made me fall head over heels for him. He did have his moments where he made me laugh though.
The story itself was interesting overall. Some moments dragged and it’s easy to tell who the villain is but it was still interesting to see how the villain would come to light. I’m really glad I took a chance on Lynsay Sands historical because The Highlander Takes a Bride was a delight to read and I’m dying to read about Saidh’s brothers now.
