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.

    " In book one it wants you to look outside the book so I used that as the opportunity to learn from my mistakes and tried throughout the whole book to guess who it would be that wasn't too obvious! Then it turns out I was right in the first guess that I wrote off because it was SOOO obvious! Good job keeping us on our toes! "

    " I find these books are precitable in the sense that by the third book I was expecting someone to be shot by an arrow, sorry but it's true. All in all it was still a good story, not like the Argeneau series but still good. "

    " Taming the Highlander Bride was Funny, romantic, exciting, and a page tuner. Got love a solid highlander romance novel. 4 star sir, if you please. (starting to like Lynsay Sands books) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Puggy02 | 12/16/2013

    " I always find Lynsay Sand's books as nice, light, enjoyable reads ans this was no exception. Although this series is not as funny as her Argeneau books, the story lines are written just as well. ****semi-spoiler**** It was very nice to see Merry and Alex clearing the air from the beginning with regards to the first day/night misunderstandings and we didn't spend the next 200 pgs stumbling over almost finding out the truth with regards to said misunderstandings. This allowed for the story plot to move along and develop into a mystery of who dunnit. Over all a very well written story, as usual, from Ms. Sands. "

    " I'm trying to dabble into other historical eras and decided on a Scottish tale by yet another author I never read before. At times even though I found some of her descriptive narrations a little long, I still enjoyed her novel and could not put it down. "

    " Just as good if not better than the first book! I love how everything panned out in the end! The characters were equally as good as the first book. The story line was great, and it still kept me guessing till the very end. on to the third book!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 TJ | 8/5/2013

    " Not as good as the two companions to this story, the whole drinking misunderstanding between the hero and heroine seemed stretched and hard to believe. But, it was still an easy way to escape for a couple of hours. "

    " Misunderstandings, mistrust, and rumors about Merry being a shrew give this fast-paced read a lot of twists. Alex is a patient guy which adds to his charm. Quick wit and laughs all the way through. "

    " The beginning of this book fustrated me. All the things happening to Alexander made me want to throw the book across the room. Merry got on my nerves a little in the beginning. But the second half of the book was great though. Alex was really sweet. "
