The Highlander Takes a Bride by @LynsaySands Review @avonbooks

The Highlander Takes a Bride
Release date: July 28, 2015
Publisher: Avon Books
Genre: Historical (Highlander) Romance

A bold, seductive laird meets his passionate match in a scintillating Highland romance from New York Timesbestselling 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.

My Rating: 4 Roses

A romantic and truly delightful historical romance, The Highlander Takes a Bride was a lovely read. With sweet romance and a surprising betrayal, this book was great and I really liked it.

Saidh was a fantastic heroine. She could hold her own for sure, with her fearlessness and her badass fighting ability. She could be reckless at times but she realized that and learned from her mistakes. I thought she was great.

Greer was also wonderful. He was very sweet and loved Saidh exactly as she was. He was protective of those under his care and took that responsibility seriously. I really liked him as well.

The romance was both sweet and spicy. Saidh and Greer were a perfect match. They were infatuated with each other from the start and it didn't take long for those feelings to deepen. And they definitely had enough chemistry to turn the heat way up. I thought they were great together.

The plot was mostly well paced abut there were some parts that slowed down. While the story never really dragged, it did have slower parts. However, I still really liked the story. It was romantic and included a betrayal that really took me by surprise. And the ending was lovely.

The Highlander Takes a Bride was a delightful historical romance and I really liked it. Romance lovers, this is a book worth the read.
