Taming the Highland Bride | [Lynsay Sands]

Taming the Highland Bride

Merry Stewart has had enough! Enough of her brothers, whose behavior would make even the most improper lady blush. Enough of their Highland home, which would surely have fallen to ruin were it not for her. She dreams of escaping into the arms of her betrothed, Alexander d'Aumesbery-even though they haven't yet met. But when they do, Merry is devastated. It seems he's no better than the men in her family.

Publisher's Summary

She was ready to let her heart run wild....

Merry Stewart has had enough! Enough of her brothers, whose behavior would make even the most improper lady blush. Enough of their Highland home, which would surely have fallen to ruin were it not for her. She dreams of escaping into the arms of her betrothed, Alexander d'Aumesbery-even though they haven't yet met. But when they do, Merry is devastated. It seems he's no better than the men in her family.

So beautiful, so brazen . . . From the moment he meets Merry, Alexander is determined to make her his. Desperate to convince her he's nothing like the members of her roguish clan, he will prove he is every bit the well-mannered gentleman. Yet, beneath it all beats a heart as intense and uncontrollable as hers. And finally, when his life is threatened, Merry realizes he's the husband she's been waiting for . . . and their passion becomes the one thing that cannot be tamed.

    "This is a great series"

    Light funny listening, mystery subplot that doesn't over power. It takes a while to get used to the narrator but after listening I really did like her heavy scottish accent.

    "Another great Highlander romance"

    If you like romance stories about the Highlanders, I do recommend this one. I will buy more from this author. In fact I did get all the books in this series and loved them all. I just love when I feel like my credit was well spent!

    "Great Book!"
    Any additional comments?

    This is a must read book, I think the narrorator did an amazing job in capturing the Irish accent. I found myself identifying with the main character and hoping for a great outcome!

    "The narrator read to slow"

    I was able to speed up the narration but then it seemed to fast. The story was exciting and it kept my interest. A great book would have been better but a good book is better then a bad book.

    Story
    "great story, lots of humor"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    the story is good, full of humor and some of how we relate to each other as human beings. Set in the past middle ages in the Scottish Highlands. It also has some mystery and suspense to it. A good read or listen. I read the book and also purchased it on audio as I liked it so well.


    What aspect of Marianna Palka’s performance would you have changed?

    a little more life in her reading would have improved things considerably. interactions between characters was good but in between could have had more life to it.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed a lot throughout the book.

    I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!

    "Highland Love"

    TAMING THE HIGHLAND BRIDE, takes readers on a delightful Scottish adventure. Lynsay Sands never fails to bring everything you want to a traditional romance story. This book will appeal to anyone wanting an enjoyable easy to read historical/Scottish love story. There is just as many amusing moments as there is romantic ones but the intimate moments give just the right amount of detail. With a hint of intrigue and drama thrown in for good measure this story will hold your interest till the end.
