Review: An English Bride in Scotland by Lynsay Sands


The first in a new historical series set in the Highlands of Scotland, from Lynsay Sands, the New York Times bestselling author of the Argeneau vampire series and countless historical romances.

Annabel was about to take the veil to become a nun when her mother suddenly arrives at the Abbey to take her home… so that she can marry the Scottish laird who is betrothed to her runaway sister! She knows nothing about being a wife, nothing about how to run a household, and definitely nothing about the marriage bed!

But from the moment Ross MacKay sets eyes on Annabel, he is taken with his shy sweet bride… and the fact that she's blessed with lush curves only makes him utter his own prayers of thanks. But when an enemy endangers her life, he'll move the Highlands themselves to save her. For though Annabel's not the bride he planned for, she's the only woman he desires…

My Review:

I have so looked forward to reading this book for quite some time, and I was not disappointed in the least.
I love Lynsay Sands whether its her vampires or her highlanders, she is just an amazing author.
I highly recommend this book to any Historical Romance lover!!
Annabel was funny, kind and innocent.  Raised in a nunnery, then carted off and married to a Scot she was scared to death, but so inquisitive on the journey to her new home.  The way she behaved on the way to her new home had me laughing out loud.  Her mother scared her into not telling her husband the truth, about her & her sister and about being raised by nuns.
Ross, was not your typical highlander that we usually see in our Historical Romance novels.  I loved that, he was so different, he was kind and caring right from the beginning.  It didn't take something dramatic happening to Annabel for him to realized how he felt, he showed her feelings and tenderness from the very moment he saw her.  Fabulous!!!
Although, there of course is trouble surrounding the couple.  Ross (and Annabel) tries to figure out who is causing the trouble, and then wow total surprise!!! Lets just say without ruining anything, that its a total shocker at the end.

I happened to have won my copy from Ms Lynsay Sands.
