TO MARRY A SCOTTISH LAIRD
By Lynsay Sands
Release Date: June 24, 2014
What happens next is what would happen if I found myself with a strapping young Highlander: they’re on each other like white on rice. So much so it takes them like two weeks to get to MacKay’s land, which, well, is a good deal longer than it should have taken Cam to return. What is soon learned by Cam and Joan is that Joan is not the nameless commoner she thought she was. Joan is actually the niece of MacKay; and once this bit is learned, Cam realizes he must marry her…despite the fact he spent the last two weeks telling her how he was never marrying again. And Joan certainly wasn’t expecting anything, being the little nobody she thought she was two weeks ago. Of course, nor did she want to be Cam’s mistress and then have him break her heart. They were going to part ways when they got to the MacKay’s; and now that is impossible. It’s hardly a marriage of convenience when you start falling in love with each other, right?
Meanwhile, Cam’s mother has still been operating under the assumption that her son won’t marry again—and keeps the castle full of marriageable girls in order to tempt him to change his mind. This seems benign—comical even once you meet the women—except that it appears the women are not that thrilled that some little nobody from nowhere has captured Cam…and Joan is nearly killed three different times before the real culprit is revealed. Figuring out who did it definitely kept the pages turning rapidly for me and I was a little shocked.
Action-packed, sexy, and full of surprises—it was a very charming read.
