I've always enjoyed books by the author, both paranormal and historical. It's hard to go wrong with a Sand's book and The Highlander Takes a Bride was yet another exceptional romance that the author delivered to her readers. Both the plot and the romance were equally worth applauding, but for me it has to be about the romance, and this book does not shy away from being a romantic love story.
The romance was very much alive and thriving in this book. It was full of intense sparks and heated chemistry. Of course a husky Scotsmen only aided in making this story one of my favorite selections of romance novels this year. To put it simple if you are anything like me as a reader and love a devouring romance than this book is the one for you.
Of course the romance was not the only thing to enjoy about the book. The characters as individuals were also likable. My favorite was Saidh, the heroine. She was a strong-willed female who equally balanced against Laird MacDonell a rugged warrior that will instantly capture the attentions of readers with his bathing habits. (I know MacDonell held mine.)
As for the plot it was as enriched as both the romance and the characters. A thrilling adventure filled with suspense and action. What I liked about the plot was that it did not outshine the romance instead Sands found a balance between the two.
I loved every moment that I spent reading this book and I would not only recommend this book but fellow books in Sand's, Scottish Highlander series.
A bold, seductive laird meets his passionate match in a scintillating Highland romance from New York Times bestselling 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.
