If you enjoy steamy historical romances set in the Scottish Highlands like I do, then this is a must read! This is the 10th novel in the Highland Brides series by Lynsay Sands. You don’t have to have read the other books in order to follow the story, but I highly recommend them! I was a little disappointed because I was expecting this to be Alick’s story (if you’ve read the other books in the series then you know what I’m talking about). That said, I still really enjoyed it and I’m hoping this means there will be another book in the series!
Claray MacFarlane is moments away from being forced to wed Maldouen MacNaughton when the Wolf swoops in to carry her off. Claray has long believed her betrothed to be dead but little does she know that he’s actually the one who just saved her.
The Wolf (aka Conall aka Bryson MacDonald) witnessed the murder of his parents and other clan members as a young boy. He escaped with his life but everyone, except for a select few, was told that he had also died. He has spent the last 16 years living as Conall and working to save enough money to reclaim his home and solve the murder of his parents. Now that he has wed Claray, he can return to MacDonald to restore it to its former glory, reunite his clan, and ultimately uncover the truth surrounding his parents’ death.
This book follows the general pattern of the other books in the series, but that’s part of the reason I love it. When I pick up one of these books I know I can count on a variation of a theme that I enjoy immensely. If you’re looking for something completely original and unpredictable this probably isn’t the book for you, but if you’re looking for a sexy read with a little bit of suspense and mystery that will transport you back in time, you should check it out!
