New York Times Bestselling Author Lynsay Sands delivers another sexy historical romance set in the wilds of the Highlands In all her daydreams about her wedding day, Lady Claray MacFarlane never once imagined being dragged to the altar by her greedy uncle and forced to marry a man she didn't know. But that's what happened, or would have, had a Highland warrior not snatched her up at the last minute and ridden off with her in his arms. . . They call him the Wolf. The mercenary's courage and prowess in battle are known throughout the Highlands, and with his handsome face and black-as-sin hair, he is as intelligent and deadly as the wolf he was named for... But the Wolf is also Claray's betrothed. Thought to have been killed as a child, he's been in hiding all these years. Now he's determined to earn enough coin to rebuild his home, reclaim his birthright, and honor his marriage contract to Claray. For he's fallen for the tender-hearted lass...and he will do anything to protect her and their future together. … (més)

The cover of this book reveals what kind of book it is --- typical damsel in distress, hero warrior romance novel. I did not expect the humor, which was very nice.
The quirky, scatterbrained personality of Claray was endearing, and her heart for injured or abandoned animals was a nice twist.
I didn't want to read the graphic sex scenes. Call me prudish but I like to leave some things to the imagination.

This was a fun, typical Lynsay Sands romp through the Highlands. We have the lass in distress/danger, the grumpy Highland hero with the hidden soft heart, the road trip (or two) from one place to another, the evil villain with the grudge against hero or heroine, and the growing feelings that become all-encompassing love. It may be a formula, but it works.

Here we have Claray MacFarlane, who believes that she will never marry. Her betrothed died when they were both children, and her father is in no hurry to arrange another marriage. She's a sweet young woman who longs for a family of her own and lavishes her care on the injured animals that she finds. She never expected a visit to her cousin to end with her uncle dragging her to a forced marriage. She's saved from that fate by the arrival of a Highland mercenary known as "The Wolf," who scoops her up and carries her off.

I loved Clary's reaction. She believes he's the answer to her prayers for rescue, notices his handsomeness, and recalls the stories she's heard of him. Grateful for her rescue and trusting him instinctively, she promptly falls asleep in his arms. Claray has no idea that The Wolf is Bryson MacDonald, aka Conall, her betrothed, who escaped the slaughter of his family. He was hidden away, and his name changed to protect him until he was grown. For the last twelve years, since earning his spurs, he fought to gain the funds to rebuild his home and reclaim his life and his bride.

I loved Conall. She isn't at all what he expected. First of all, she surprised him with her trust though she had no idea why he had rescued her. Then there was his reaction to her rescue of various animals along the journey. First, the bunny, which he thought was for dinner, resulted in a look of horror from Claray. Then the baby stoat (ermine), which he called "vermin." By the time she rescued an injured fox kit, he just shook his head and made room for it. I loved his care for her during the journey, from holding her while she slept to accepting that she doesn't eat meat and finding other things for her to eat.

I loved watching the relationship between Claray and Conall develop. Though he's a fierce warrior, when it comes to Claray, Conall is kindness itself. He is protective without being overbearing and drawn to her more than any other woman in his life. He does hold onto the truth of his identity a little longer than he should have, but even there, he had his reasons. The more time he spends with her, the stronger his attraction to her grows. There are also a few satisfying instances of jealousy when his cousin tweaks him about his earlier reluctance to marry yet. Claray could have been portrayed as a complete ditz, but though she is somewhat naïve, she is by no means stupid. She had an excellent grasp of her uncle's plan and that of his coconspirator. She was sweet but not a pushover and knew how to get her way when it was important to her. She was attracted to Conall but torn because of the teachings of the family priest.

Once Claray and Conall were married, their relationship continued to grow as they worked together to return his home and lands to their former glory. I loved their teamwork and seeing them pull everyone together. But not everyone is happy to see the progress. When someone shoots an arrow at them while they are cavorting at the pond, the question is who and why? Is it the person responsible for the deaths of Conall's family, back to finish the job? Or is it Claray's rejected bridegroom trying to get her back? The intensity goes up when another attack succeeds in injuring Claray, and there is still no clue who is behind it. The third time is nearly the charm, as the attacker tries again. I was glued to the pages as the bizarre reason for the attacks was explained and watched Claray try to talk her way out of danger. I was surprised and creeped out by the final player and happy to see their end. I adored that Claray's rescues played a significant part in that ending. With some good news regarding the other threat to their happiness, Claray and Conall are finally free to live their lives.

I loved seeing characters from other books in the series, such as Aulay and Alick Buchanan. It was very special to see Annabel and Ross MacKay from the first book in the series (An English Bride in Scotland). Conall is their nephew; his mother was Ross's sister Giorsal. Other secondary characters, such as Payton and Roderick, kept Conall and Claray safe when permitted to stay close and served as a bit of conscience when Conall needed it. My favorite secondary characters were the four-footed, furry ones. Each one had a story and distinct personality, and several played critical roles in the book.

I can't wait to see what is next for the Highland Brides. Perhaps one of Claray's sisters? ( )

After looking at the various reviews for this book, I’ve come to the conclusion that you just need to read the book to decide what you think about it. Personally, I enjoyed this book and all of the previous books in the series. I always enjoy this author’s books because there is always a witty side to the story along with a serious fight-for-your-life side. In this book, the witty (lighthearted) side is the female lead’s affinity for finding, rescuing, and healing animals – while the male lead growls, but helps care for them. Picture the old Walt Disney version of Cinderella – only with Cinderella helping the animals instead of them helping her.

Bryson MacDonald was betrothed when he was but a babe (as was the custom in that time period). However, at the age of six, his parents and most of his clan were poisoned and died a horrible death. Bryson was meant to have consumed that poison as well, but he didn’t. He’d snuck downstairs to observe the adults and witnessed the deaths. He managed to escape to his uncle’s home where the rescue included them convincing the rest of the world that he had also died. Otherwise, the villain would keep trying until they succeeded in finishing Bryson off. So, his uncle changed his name to Conall, and fostered him out to The Sinclair. Bryson/Conall grew to be a fearsome warrior and earned his spurs at the very early age of sixteen. He has been hiring himself and his warriors out as mercenaries for the past twelve years. His only goal has been to earn enough money to return to his home, Castle Deagh Fhortan, and restore it – turning it into the happy home it once was.

Claray MacFarlane’s uncle has absconded with her and is forcing her to marry Maldouen MacNaughton. She has no choice because there is no way to escape. Just as her uncle is dragging her to the chapel for the wedding, three riders approach. She recognizes one of them as The Wolf who is one of the most fearsome warriors in Scotland. What is he doing here? He approaches her uncle and hands him a scroll – while reaching down and scooping her up onto his horse with him. RESCUED! The Wolf had rescued her – and for some reason – she isn’t fearful of him – just grateful. Her father had sent him and they were on their way back to her home.

Claray had always wondered why her father hadn’t arranged another marriage for her after her betrothed had died. Yet, every time she brought it up, he got angry with her and stopped the conversation. She’d given up on her dreams of a husband and family long ago and accepted that she’d live in her father’s keep and be its mistress for the rest of her days.

Claray and Conall spend days and days together during the long trek to her father’s home and they become close. When he tells her who he really is, she has little time to digest the information before he and her father have her standing before the priest and then whisk her off to Castle Deagh Fhortan. The haste is to keep her free from MacNaughton who isn’t one to give up easily. The danger is two-fold – MacNaughton giving chase AND the murderer who killed his entire clan twenty-two years ago.

I thoroughly enjoyed the story and admired both Claray and Conall. I would have rated it 5-stars except I thought one of the antagonists was dealt with far too easily. The other, however, kept you guessing to the end and parts of it were more than surprising. I would have liked seeing Conall and his warriors taking a more proactive approach to finding out who the murderer was rather than just sitting back and waiting for things to happen. Yes, I know it had been twenty-two years, but most of the surviving members of the clan were right there – it would have been easy enough to at least question them about what they remember.

Do you remember Annabel from the very first book? You know, the girl that was supposed to become a nun? An English Bride in Scotland An English Bride in Scotland (Highland Brides, #1) by Lynsay Sands Well, this book is about her and her husband Ross's nephew, Bryson MacDonald.

I can't believe that I have been reading this particular series for 10 books now. This book is written in a typical Lynsay Sands manner. It is comfortable to rely on how a story is going to go with every book.

You get anxiety, misunderstandings, angst, attempted murder, mystery, an adorable heroine, and a big burly hero---plus a lot of steamy scenes.
In other words, we get a typical novel from this author. And that is a relief to me. In this day and age, I need something I can rely on!
