Only one man could set her heart ablaze . . .

Lady Averill Mortagne learned to control her fierce temper as a young girl. But if her father insists on parading her before one more English lord who looks askance at her flame-colored hair, she'll simply scream! Her only respite is the time she spends with Kade Stewart, the wounded Scot her brother brought home from the Crusades. Who could have imagined a Highland warrior would be the only gentleman around?

Lady Averill helped save his life, and for that Kade is truly grateful. She is also almost unbearably beautiful, but he could never subject such a sweet and gentle lady to the rough life of a Stewart laird's bride . . . or could he? When she braves an unexpected danger by his side, Averill will prove to Kade that her heart is as fiery as her hair . . . and that submitting to their scorching passion would be heaven indeed.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dawn ♥ romance | 2/15/2014

    " This was an entertaining historical romance with plenty of humor, steamy sex, and a pace that moved along. Kade returns from being a prisoner during the Crusades and his best friends sister Lady Averill nurses nurses him back to health. They marry and return to his home to find his father and brothers drunkards and unexpected danger. "

    " another great book to an awesome series!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caroline | 1/29/2014

    " There were some great scenes in this book but Averill was just a touch pathetic. She was meant to have a temper because she had red hair but it didn't really come out. Kade though was great - sensitve and strong. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Heather | 1/28/2014

    " I really love Lynsay Sand's writing and humor however her highlander series is just not my genre. It was a very interesting story and liked the attempted murder plot added. However I think I should stick to her vampire series. I would however love it if she continued her spy series which was both adorable and action packed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenna | 1/27/2014

    " I bought this book at a flea market and it has been sitting on my bedside table for months. It was adorable and the couple was very endearing. I enjoyed it for the most part, except they kept getting interrupted and I skimmed the last few chapter for superfluous character's and their problems. Your brother is killed and someone shot an arrow in your back? Who cares? Kiss your wife. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bridget | 1/25/2014

    " Typical Sands romance. Why do I keep reading these? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Denise | 1/24/2014

    " Fun series - not going to win any awards, but I enjoyed reading. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joycee | 1/23/2014

    " I dunno if I'm just getting jaded, but this didn't seem to have as much "oomph" as I remember other books of Ms. Sands having ... but it was still a likable read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebecca (everyday reader) | 1/20/2014

    " Kade and Averill are a couple that will never tire of each other. Her red hair scares away englishmen but not her Scot. It is heartwarming and entertaining. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cassie | 1/19/2014

    " This was the better book of the three but wished Lynsay wrote Avy's temper into the story more. A nice light read with a splash of erotica thrown in to wet your appetite. Highlanders are sexy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 C.M. | 1/10/2014

    " I liked this book. It was an entertaining read but the title is a little misleading. The "hellion" IMO isn't very hellish. It would have been nice to have her a little wilder, less easy to control. But overal still a good book "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nicole | 12/4/2013

    " Loved this book. Beautiful, sexy, and romantic. A great rainy day read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stacy McKitrick | 12/3/2013

    " This was a nice entertaining book. The characters came to life for me, as I thought about them long after I put the book down. I got this book free at a book signing (I really wanted Lynsay Sands' autograph), but I'll go and buy the other two in the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 LibraryLass | 11/14/2013

    " Completely satisfying end to a great Highlander trilogy. Definitely will re-read these. "

    " I was at a total loss on this one. Never had a solid clue. I had a vague idea that maybe it was.... but never really saw it coming until it was being explained. I laughed my BUTT off when she complimented his "piffer". OMG!!! too darn funny! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katrina | 8/12/2012

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deidre | 7/14/2011

    " A great book to curl up with for a few hours. The heroine of this story is refreshingly funny in her ignorance and honesty. The naive things she does while trying to take advice from many others had me laughing out loud. "

    " Decent vacation fluff...includes some humor And departs from formula a bit. "

    " I really enjoyed this story. The fact that the hero had a reputation as a brutal man but was actually a very nice man, made him a great character.
    I really enjoyed this story.
    I have a special affection for stories with scottish heroes. "
