As I was reading the second book in this series I suddenly realized this story could have been taking place in Montana or Wyoming Yes Lynsay Sands tells us the action occurs in England and Scotland but there are no descriptive paragraphs that transport the reader to either location One of the reasons I enjoy reading historical novels is the genre offers free tickets to many places during any time period When the hero and heroine journey from England to Scotland I couldn't even tell the setting had changed Merry the Stewart Shrew journeys from Scotland to England to marry Alex the man she's been betrothed to since a child Alex a soldier during the Crusades has been away fighting in Tunis and has returned to England only because his father has died He's in no hurry to claim his bride so Merry's father decides to take her to him view spoiler She's happy to soon be rid of her drunken father and brothers but is disappointed when she meets her future husband and presumes he's also a heavy drinker Fast forward several chapters and we discover someone has been drugging Alex and wants him dead A similar plot was used in the first book in this series and I found myself rolling my eyes as I read the pages about the attempts on Alex's life In the end the characters behind the murder attempts are revealed and justice is served hide spoiler

I keep telling myself every time I read a current book from Lynsay Sands that I’m going to pull all of her books from the TBR mountain and put them right on top so I can get to them soon I love her writing her characters her stories I love everything about her books Sigh My problem is time but I’m one step closer I’ve found a good portion of her books in that mountain and they’re nearly ready to be read Just have to find the rest now because I refuse to read Ms Sands out of order any I want the full effect from start to finish and I intend to have itThis is the second book in the Devil of the Highland series The hero Alexander is the brother of the heroine from that first book so we do get a little update about Cullen and Evelinde along the wayAlexander has just learned of his father’s death so he’s come home from the Crusades at last That’s when he learns his sister is married to the Devil of the Highlands and he’s determined to make sure she’s well and happy at that man’s hands But before he can begin his journey word comes that his intended bride is on her way to him Having put off marrying the Stewart Shrew so far it looks as though the deed will now have to be doneTired of picking up after and taking care of her father and brothers drunken sots that they are when they give Merry the news they’re taking her to her betrothed her resistance lasts only so long Anything has to be better than the life she’s led since her mother died Leaving behind the tedious and heading toward a new adventure Merry finally comes face to face with Alexander and learns he isn’t any better than the men in her family Her new life will be exactly like her oldBut Alexander is determined to prove to his new wife that he’s truly not what she believes So begins the wooing and loving between these two characters who I thoroughly enjoyed Alexander is confident in his position as laird has a good rapport with his people and knows he’s got a good woman and means to keep her Merry has a heart that wants to experience love companionship and some wildness thrown in for good measure and she eventually knows that Alexander is the one to give all of that to herThey work hard at their relationship and when all comes together is when danger shows up on their doorstop and defeating that peril together only makes them stronger This is another terrific book from Ms Sands and I’m anxiously looking forward to the third book in the series The Hellion and the Highlander Release is only a month awaySee my complete review at

Taming the Highland BrideRoguish clan he will prove he is every bit the well mannered gentleman Yet beneath it all beats a heart as intense and uncontrollable as hers And finally when his life is threatened Merry realizes he's the husband she's been waiting for and their passion becomes the one thing that cannot be tame. I really enjoyed Merry’s character She was fun and she did indeed do whatever was necessary no matter how unpleasant she considered the task to be Alexander’s character was also uite endearing He was not thrilled with the idea of Merry due to the reputation that she had but once he met her he was uite taken with her They both had their reservations about each other but through actions they both learned that there was to each other than meets the eye Figuring out who the culprit behind threatening Alex and why was pretty easily solved It was still a pleasant story and I enjoyed reading it Overall I am uite satisfied with this story and its series
