Lynsay Sands returns with another lovely highland romance. I adored this story. It was simply delightful reading as I was easily swept away by the passion, suspense and even humor. It was good from the first page until the last.
Dougal Buchanon and Murine Carmichael were perfect for each other but they had to prevail over a few obstacles first. Murine's half-brother wanted to use her for his own nefarious gain so she runs away and crosses paths with Dougal and his brothers. The Buchanon brothers realize who Murine is and immediately offer their protection even if it meant one of them marrying the poor lass. A short time into their journey foul play is suspected and a mystery unfolds.
As usual, Lynsay Sands spins quite an adventurous romance. The suspense was fantastic and not easily put together until near to the end. It definitely keeps the reader on the edge of anticipation wondering about the villain. The puzzle had a pretty neat twist and the romance was filled with passion and miscommunication and had some funny moments.
Lynsay Sands does not disappoint with her latest book. I enjoyed it very much and highly recommend it to all.
New York Times bestselling author Lynsay Sands welcomes readers back to the Scottish Highlands, where a gallant warrior vows to protect a beautiful runaway . . .
Lady Murine Carmichael has known her share of bad luck. But when her debt-ridden half brother tries to sell her off in exchange for a few Scottish horses, it’s the final straw. If keeping her freedom means escaping through harsh countryside alone, so be it. She has barely begun her journey when she lands an unlikely escort—the brawny Highlander who just refused to buy her virtue.
Dougall Buchanan was disgusted by Lord Danvries’ shameful offer, but Murine tempts him beyond measure. Even bedraggled and dusty, the lass glows with beauty and bravery. Dougall wants to do more than just help her flee. He wants to protect her—with his life and his heart—if she’ll only let him. For Murine may be pursued by a powerful foe, but nothing compares to the fiery courage of a Highlander in love.
