Review: The Wrong Highlander by Lynsay Sands
Lady Evina Maclean has heard much about Rory Buchanan's skill as a healer. What she hasn't heard is how good the brawny Highlander looks bathing in a waterfall. But Evina can't afford the distraction, for her ailing father urgently needs care. Only when she's rendered Buchanan unconscious and dragged him back to her family's castle does the truth emerge—it's not Rory she's kidnapped but his brother Conran.
Other ladies try to ensnare Conran with flattery. Evina hits him over the head with the hilt of her sword to save her kin—and Conran likes the spirited redhead all the more for it. He's learned enough from his brother to heal Evina's father, but there are other dangers swirling around the Maclean clan. And while the beautiful, independent lady has sworn not to marry, this wrong Highlander may be just the right man for her.
I'm not sure if any of you have read a book by Lynsay Sands but if you haven't you are truly missing something. I just love her books. You can always count of a few things when reading one of her books, they will be well written, you'll her characters and they are always funny.
She has a natural humor that draws you into the story. Humor helps balance out things even during the worst of times.
I just love her characters and I have to say that this series, the Highland Brides have some of my favorite. I love how these brothers are with each other. They are totally in for each other. It really makes the story richer. You can feel the different layer of loyalty and love they share for each other.
This time we have Conran who gets kidnapped, sorta, instead of Rory. This would be horrible if it hadn't turned out to be so funny. Plus, it's hard to be kidnapped when you can leave at anytime.
I also enjoyed Evina and her family. As the book progresses you really learn more and more about her and realize what a very special person she is. I was glad she for Conran instead of Rory because she really needed someone like him who can love so deep.
I think you'll really enjoy Evina and Conran's story. Besides the romance of it you of course get the mystery to go with it. I loved how the brothers and friends pointed out how it seemed that each of them found woman to fall in love with that had someone who wanted to kill them. If you read the series you think that, not that it's a game changer for reading the series, but you never think about what the author thinks, until this book. Pointing out makes they series as a whole work even better. Drawing attention to and being shocked about the attempted killings gives you common ground with the characters.
A fun series that you all should try!
