Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Lynsay Sands welcomes listeners back to the Scottish Highlands, where a gallant warrior vows to protect a beautiful runaway.

Lady Murine Carmichael has known her share of bad luck. But when her debt-ridden half brother tries to sell her off in exchange for a few Scottish horses, it's the final straw. If keeping her freedom means escaping through harsh countryside alone, so be it. She has barely begun her journey when she lands an unlikely escort - the brawny Highlander who just refused to buy her virtue.

Dougall Buchanan was disgusted by Lord Danvries' shameful offer, but Murine tempts him beyond measure. Even bedraggled and dusty, the lass glows with beauty and bravery. Dougall wants to do more than just help her flee. He wants to protect her - with his life and his heart - if she'll only let him. For Murine may be pursued by a powerful foe, but nothing compares to the fiery courage of a Highlander in love.

    "Yess!!"

    Thank you Lyndsay Sands for this wonderful story. I admit I binged on this audio book, finishing it in about three days. Elle Newlands is such a great storyteller, illustrating the characters in my mind perfectly. I would highly recommend!

    "Good but not great by Lynsay Sands"

    It's not one of my favorite books by Lynsay Sands. I took some time to be done with it. The characters was a bit boring, Which is a pity, given the storryline is ideal for a realy good book.

    "I love this series!!!"

    Good stories, incredible characters, great sex, drama, humor, suspense and surprises all wrapped into a romance full of yummy Highlander's and delivered by a stellar performance! What's not to love?

    Creditworthy? YES!

    "Contrived and Unbelievable"

    I love Lyndsay Sands however this was not well done, there was what was suppose to be suspense at every corner that was contrived as if there was no real plot. The h faints at the drop of a hat yet thinks nothing of seeing a strange man in the woods all the time, not once but several times and she says nothing. The h well naive to the point of stupidity while the H well nothing interesting about him either. It took 3 weeks to read when normally 2 days, however it just angered me, so I would put the book down or skip through the chapters to get past the contrived plot that was drawn out. There were to many major characters with speaking rolls also.

    "As always Lynsay delivers humour and romance"

    A laugh or two, love and some adventure. Characters that are just likeable people and a nice blending of stories. It would be nice to have a male reader too. Thoroughly enjoyable:)

    Story
    "Unquestionably Enhanced by the Narration!"
    Where does Falling for the Highlander rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Squarely in the middle. Well done, well paced, interesting story!


    What did you like best about this story?

    What really sets this book apart is the Narrator! Real Scottish brogue, fantastic listen! The story, while somewhat predictable as these kind of romances tend to be, is full of strong, tough, and caring Highlanders, cunning and spiteful Englishmen, and intelligent, brave, and for a fair time...unlucky women! Great stuff for a historical romance.


    What about Elle Newlands’s performance did you like?

    Fabulous brogue, clearly a Scottish accent, well-modulated, clear, easy to listen to and understand. Bravo! Will listen to more books narrated by Ellem!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Hot, sweet, and sexy.

    "HER SAVIOUR"

    Lynsay Sands writes Historical Mortal work just as Greatly as she does Her Modern Day Immortal work.
    And Elle Newlands narrates brilliantly. The Best Narrator I've heard so far 📖😁

    Story
    "Not much is happening"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Not really, it was an easy listen, but nothing to recommend.


    If you’ve listened to books by Lynsay Sands before, how does this one compare?

    My favourite is Loving daylights, of this series An english bride is my favourite and much better.


    What does Elle Newlands bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    I think I would not have read the whole book, but listening it while doing something else did mean I did finish it after all.


    Was Falling for the Highlander worth the listening time?

    I listen to books while I am doing stuff arround the house and it is hard to find enough stuff to listen to, so it was ok.


    Any additional comments?

    There were some strands in the story that where not followed up, which I always find annoying.
