A lady and an outlaw…

When strait-laced spinster Margaret Andrews tries to stop her younger sister, Amelia, from eloping with the wrong man, the last thing she expects is a coach accident. Stranded in Scotland with a dangerous Highlander, she must put aside her genteel sensibilities and learn to survive.

Cain Sinclair rescues the prim and proper Margaret, but he knows she’ll never want a man like him. As a self-proclaimed sinner, he lives his life from one day to the next. He unravels every thread of decorum she possesses, tempting her to throw away propriety. Margaret sees a man worth saving, but Cain fights her efforts to reform him. When Cain risks everything to save his brother from the hangman’s noose, Margaret must break all the rules to get him back . . . or lose him forever.

My Rating: 5 Roses

Romantic and enjoyable, Unlaced by the Outlaw was a definite win. From the truly engaging characters to the sweet romance, this book was a delight and I really liked it.

Margaret was definitely an interesting character who went through a lot of changes over the course of the book. In the beginning, she was somewhat snobbish, seeing titles and wealth as a greater indicator of a man's worth than his character. But, even then, she retained a core of strength that even she didn't realize she had. And, as the story went on, her strength became the dominant part of her personality. She realized how trite the wealth and titles were when compared to a man who truly loved her. And, she proved that she was tough and willing to do anything for those she loved. By the end, I thought she was a truly excellent character.

Cain was just as great. He was so sweet, entirely devoted to his loved ones and determined to do anything to protect them. No matter what the circumstances, his love for Margaret was unwavering and it was clear that there was literally nothing he wouldn't do for her. He was an absolutely wonderful hero.

The romance was perfect, both sweet and spicy. Margaret and Cain were perfect for each other, though it took Margaret a little bit longer to admit it. But, once she saw the light, it was clear that they were totally devoted to each other. Not to mention the chemistry between them. They definitely turned the heat up on a few occasions. I thought they were wonderful together.

The plot was fast-paced and I was totally hooked the entire way through. The story was lovely and the ending was perfect.

Unlaced by the Outlaw was a truly wonderful, utterly delightful historical romance. I absolutely loved this lovely book. Romance lover, you won't want to miss this one.
