To Marry a Scottish Laird is the newest historical romance from the wonderful Lynsay Sands. She returns to the Highlands of Scotland for this book, the second one in the series. It was an absolutely charming book, with lovely characters and a sweet romance. In true Sands tradition, the story had a few surprises along the way. I loved everything about the story from beginning to end.
The story opens with Cam, our wonderful hero, stumbling across a young lad who is in dire need of a rescue. Now, being the honorable guy that he is, Cam insists on giving the young boy a safe escort to his destination in Scotland. Of course, along the way he discovers "Jo' is really Joan. One thing leads to another, and they end up forced to wed. The story doesn't end there though. Despite their hot chemistry, Cam and Joan have plenty of drama ahead of them. Jealousy and insecurity get in the way for a while. This only heightened the drama and made the book an even better read for me.
As usual, Sands has created some wonderful characters in this book. She gave it plenty of drama and just the perfect amount of humor to lighten things up. There was some suspense and danger to keep it really interesting. And the romance was the best part for me. As usual, it was sweet and maybe a bit on the steamy side. Just perfect in my book!
This book was a really great read for me. I enjoyed it from beginning to end, and found it hard to put down for even a minute. So I will be recommending it to everyone.
