To Marry a Scottish Laird
Joan, an English peasant, dresses as a boy to take a journey and deliver a scroll to McKay castle. When she is accosted on the road, Highlander Campbell Sinclair comes to her rescue. When Cam finds out Joan isn’t really a boy, the two begin a steamy romance. Will it endure the scrutiny of the Scottish nobility?
To Marry A Scottish Laird was an entertaining mix of humor, romance and mystery. When Joan and Cam are encouraged to marry after being found in a compromising situation, the scheming women living at Sinclair castle set their sights on killing her to get to her husband. It’s a story arc that is just absurd. Try to figure out which of those who are pretending to be Joan’s friend are really out to take her life.
I’ve read Lynsay Sands’ vampire novels, but never any of her historical romance. She is notorious for creating awkward, somewhat unrealistic dialogue. Be prepared to slow down and try to figure out what the characters are saying in phonetically written Scottish brogue. The story itself flew by, and I will continue to reach for Sands’ work when I see a title with her name on it.
