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.
Enjoyable read! Falling for the Highlander by Lynsay Sands is a great installment in the series. The characters are very distinctive, and the Scottish brogue is the perfect touch throughout the story. The relationship between Dougall and Murine was sweet. I enjoyed the fact that there wasn't a bunch of turmoil between the two main characters before they married. It has a good mystery that reveals itself quite nicely. Fans will be able to revisit characters from previous stories in the series, too.
