Lynsay Sands is another author on my must-buy list. It doesn’t seem to matter whether it’s a paranormal or a historical, her stories have humor and heart and leave me feeling good when I’m done.
Evelinde is living under the thumb, and temper, of her horrible stepmother. With her father dead and her brother fighting in the Crusades, there’s no one left to protect her. So when her stepmother calls for Evelinde with a smile–she knows it’s not going to be good. Then she learns she’s to be married! She’s going to get away! Unfortunately for her, her stepmother has betrothed her to the Devil of the Highlands, a man feared and reviled across Scotland.
Duncan knows about the rumors that surround him. He’s a man of few words and knows the worse his reputation, the less actual fighting he has to do. His first wife died under suspicious circumstances (which only added to his infamy) but he NEEDS an heir. He doesn’t expect anything more than a pleasant marriage and children. It doesn’t take him long to realize Evelinde needs rescuing, but from the moment they meet…things just seem to go from strange to stranger!
Lots of humor, lots of hot lovemaking, and a happily ever after filled with love. For a historical with a strong, silent Scot in a kilt, and a woman who wants the words too…don’t miss “Devil of the Highlands” by Lynsay Sands. You’ll be smiling for days!
