The Highlander's Promise

The Highlander’s Promise is a Beauty and the Beast story between a laird and a gently-born lady. While the premise is not uncommon - an amnesiac heroine discovers love and passion with a strong alpha hero - the execution is poor. The characters are uninspiring and unimaginative and the interesting ...

Surrender to the Highlander

Lynsay Sands’ popular Highlanders series about the nine men of the rowdy Buchanan clan continues apace with Edith and Niels’ tale, Surrender to the Highlander. Niels’ band of brothers is in a quandary.  Their only sister Saidh, (heroine of book #3, The Highlander Takes a Bride) is extremel ...

Lady Pirate

In this reissue of a title first published in 1991, Captain Valoree Ainsley has to find a husband in order to claim her inheritance.  And that could be a problem, seeing as she is roaming the high seas as a pirate named Captain Red (soon dubbed Back-From-The-Dead Red). Since the death of her older ...

To Marry a Scottish Laird

This book wins the award for the longest I have ever attempted to avoid having to read a review book. For roughly half a year I have been trying to put off forcing myself to finish reading To Marry a Scottish Laird. There was just nothing about it that called out to me to read it. ...

B
Vampire Most Wanted

I would say The Vampire Most Wanted was a good book. As it’s one of the first few books I’ve read by Lynsay Sands, I can’t really say whether or not it measures up to her other works, but I certainly enjoyed it. It wasn’t revolutionary, but it was certainly satisfying. The fir ...

B
One Lucky Vampire

I did not realize when I chose this book to review that it was number 19 in a series. If I had bothered to find that out ahead of time, I probably would have passed this book by. I am glad I did not because I would have missed out on an enjoyable read. Sands does an excellent and almost seamless job ...

B
An English Bride in Scotland

I may never reread An English Bride in Scotland, but I don’t resent or regret the time I’ve spent with it. This lighthearted, sometimes comical romp through Scotland was just fine for a lazy summer afternoon. No, it’s not going to make my DIK pile, but it certainly doesn’t belong in the tras ...

B
The Lady Is a Vamp

Under normal circumstances, abducting a vampire to achieve your goals probably is not the best idea. This is especially true if the vampire you kidnap happens to be a member of the Argeneau family. Unfortunately for Paul Jones the vampire he has chosen to abduct is an Argeneau and her family wants h ...

C-
The Countess

While reading The Countess I couldn’t help but be reminded of Moliére, the 17th century king of comedy. The novel is quite a farce; unfortunately, it’s not a particularly good one. Christiana Fairgrave doesn’t have the usual reaction when her husband drops dead. Instead of being upset, she ...

Taming the Highland Bride

Taming the Highland Bride was a difficult book to review because it was a difficult book to finish. From the first page to the last, its plot, its characters, and writing style meandered through mediocrity. This is worse than when a book is of such poor quality that you are impelled to keep reading ...
