ARC Review: In Her Highlander's Bed by Lynsay Sands
Kidnapped and forced to wed her clan’s enemy, Allissaid MacFarlane had risked death to escape. But after a struggle over a plaid she tried to “borrow,” she awakens in a strange bed with a strange man seated in a chair beside her. Unsure if he is friend or foe, she claims not to remember her own name or how she’d come to be in the clearing. However, the more time she spends with Calan, the more she falls for this strong, honorable laird. She soon decides she can trust him with her life. . . but can she trust him with her heart
Sands is one of the very few historical romance authors that I read any more. I have trouble finding ones that I really enjoy. Because of that, I'm always happy when I know it's time to read one of hers. In Her Highlander's Bed is another cousin of the Buchanans. Love those brothers.
Up this time we have Allissaid. A fun name to say. What happens to her is horrible and you can't help but worry about what's to come. Luckily she runs into a man that's willing to help her. Plus she has that very connected family at her back.
It's sweet how worried Calan is for the woman he finds. When he doesn't think she knows who she is he keeps her safe until she does. He's a great guy that you can tell right away cares about the women in his family. He does right for them and protects those who need it. All signs of a great leader.
I enjoyed the interaction between these two. They worked well together and when he knew what happened to her did all he could to protect her from harm. You have a ton of interaction between the couple and his mother, sister, and cousin but not so much with the other people in his clan so you do feel like you are missing something.
One of the things I like about Sands's writing is the connection between people. I understood why this story went the way it did and enjoyed it totally but craved something...
Sadly I'm done with In Her Highlander's Bed and have to wait a year for another of her historicals I will say that you don't have to read these in order as long as you read her sister's story before this one. I think it works so much better when you already know what's going on. The main plot is an ongoing plot that covers both sisters' stories. It's not a must but it will just read better. You don't have to read the Buchanans first but why not?
