A Reader's Opinion: FALLING FOR THE HIGHLANDER by Lynsay Sands




Lady Murine Carmichael hasn't had the best of luck: her brothers murdered and herself barely escaping. Her father succumbed to his illness and she's now alone while her inheritance passed to her more able cousin because of her weakness—her fainting affliction. She's now the ward of her heavily indebted half-brother who doesn't hesitate to sell her virtue to gain horses from the Brawny Highlander, Dougall Buchanan.

Dougall Buchanan was taken with the beautiful woman at Lord Danvries and appalled when he mentioned that it was his sister and willing to exchange her favours for the horses he had brought. Refusing, he departs. When he comes across the fleeing Murine, he offers her his protection. A villain is after Murine and with her life in peril, can Dougall protect her without losing his heart? Will Murine be saved by the Highlander to whom she's surrendered her heart?

A sensational story with lots of intense moments and a plot for murder with some sensual moments. Be prepared to laugh out loud with the antics of the couple and make sure a fan is near when the temperature spikes! The reader is in for a treat. Lynsay Sands won't disappoint—she's written another great read.

New York Times bestselling author Lynsay Sands welcomes readers back to the Scottish Highlands, where a gallant warrior vows to protect a beautiful runaway . . .

Lady Murine Carmichael has known her share of bad luck. But when her debt-ridden half brother tries to sell her off in exchange for a few Scottish horses, it’s the final straw. If keeping her freedom means escaping through harsh countryside alone, so be it. She has barely begun her journey when she lands an unlikely escort—the brawny Highlander who just refused to buy her virtue.

Dougall Buchanan was disgusted by Lord Danvries’ shameful offer, but Murine tempts him beyond measure. Even bedraggled and dusty, the lass glows with beauty and bravery. Dougall wants to do more than just help her flee. He wants to protect her—with his life and his heart—if she’ll only let him. For Murine may be pursued by a powerful foe, but nothing compares to the fiery courage of a Highlander in love.
