REVIEW: The Highlander Takes a Bride (Highlander #3) by Lynsay Sands

Sword fighting, swearing, and riding astride come naturally to Saidh Buchanan. Simpering and holding her tongue—definitely not. Raised alongside seven boisterous brothers, Saidh has little interest in saddling herself with a husband... until she glimpses the new Laird MacDonnell bathing naked in the loch. Though she's far from a proper lady, the brawny Highlander makes Saidh feel every inch a woman.

She has an angel's looks, a warrior's temper, and seeks out his kisses with wanton eagerness. Little wonder that Greer is intrigued by his comely guest. When reckless desire overtakes them, he's more than willing to make an honest woman of her. But Saidh is the target of a hidden enemy, and Greer faces the battle of his life to safeguard the woman he wants above all others.

The Highlander Takes a Bride is the third book in Sands’ Highlander series, but it can be read as a standalone.

Sands has done it again – her wit, humor, and flawless style enthralled. Saidh, the heroine, is a feisty, self-assured young woman who falls for the new laird, Greer MacDonnell. Their chemistry is explosive and I adored how unapologetic Saidh is for her passion, her non-conformist ways, and her sense of self.

The romance of the novel was well thought out, and I enjoyed all the characters. The mystery was an unexpected bonus here – throughout the book, major characters die, and suffice to say that the culprit was someone I absolutely did not expect at all. Many times, the author will drop hints here and there, leading you to suspect you know who the bad guy is, but in this novel, I didn’t see it coming AT ALL. And I even read it again, just to see if I could find any clues, but Sands is a master of her craft, and I saw nothing. Very impressive! 

Although some parts are a little slow, the tempo picks up quickly. Overall, this was a great read. Highly recommended.
