In New York Times bestselling author Lynsay Sands’ captivating romance, a lass targeted by an unknown foe is saved—and seduced—by a bold Highlander
Edith Drummond owes her life to Niels Buchanan and his brothers. Waking after an illness to a castle overrun by rugged Highlanders is disconcerting, but so is learning that she’s slowly being poisoned. Niels insists on staying by her side, and Edith soon discovers that even more dangerous is her wild attraction to the fierce warrior.
Niels has never met a more courageous—or enticing—woman than Lady Edith. The idea of such a bonny lass being forced to enter a nunnery is more than any red-blooded Scotsman could bear. He’ll gladly marry her himself. But while sweeping her off her feet is easy, it’ll take all his skill to defeat her family’s relentless enemies, and convince her to surrender to his sweet embrace. . . .
In Sands's sassy fifth Highlanders historical romance (after Falling for the Highlander), she definitively answers the question of what is worn or not worn under the kilts of her sexy Scots. When Saidh MacDonnell (heroine of an earlier book in the series) sends her four brawny brothers on a two-day journey to investigate her friend Edith's strange silence, they are plunged into investigating a series of mysterious events that have killed the Laird of Drummond and several of his heirs, and caused the near-death of his daughter Edith. Niels Buchanan, the most handsome of the family, is immediately captivated by Edith's beauty and nurses her back to health while protecting her from other attempts on her life. Solving this mystery, amid many dips in the loch and attempts to investigate the kilt's underpinnings, results in a humorous and sensual romance. Sands cheerfully mixes anachronisms with unconvincing Scottish dialect in a way that will never be mistaken for historical accuracy, but those interested in romance with a quasi-Highland setting and enough brothers to fill a lighthearted and lusty series will be entertained.
I have read all of Mrs. Sands historical books and have loved them all. One of my go to author when I want a good bool.
