Four Buchanan brothers have found their brides…only three more to go in this scintillating romance from New York Times bestselling author Lynsay Sands…
Lady Dwyn Innes feels utterly out of place among the eligible women who've descended on Buchanan Keep, vying for the attention of the last unmarried brothers. She isn't long-legged and slender like her sisters, or flirtatious and wily like other lasses. Since her betrothed died, Dwyn has resigned herself to becoming an old maid. Yet a chance encounter with a stranger in the orchard awakens her to a new world of sensation and possibility...
After weeks away, Geordie Buchanan returns to find his home swarming with potential brides, thanks to his loving but interfering family. But one lass in particular draws his attention from the moment he spies her climbing a tree. Lady Dwyn is not nearly as plain as she thinks. Her lush figure and eager kisses delight him, as does her honesty. But the real test lies ahead: eliminating a hidden enemy, so that he and Dwyn can seal their Highland passion with a vow.
Hunting For A Highlander is the most recent installment in her “Highland Brides” series which is number eight in the series —highly impressive in how she has built this family and this whole series. I have had a blast with many of these books and I was delighted to read Geordie’s book. Just some background information, this series the ” Highland Brides” is a series that focuses on the Buchannan family, a set of brothers and their own journey in finding love, some mystery, danger, intrigue and plenty more. Now I would like to point out you really shouldn’t take these stories so seriously. I know some readers have struggled with some of the books, the key is to ENJOY these books because the way this author writes is to entertain and have fun and that is what I really get out of these stories.
Our story starts off with our hero Geordie, who spots our lovely heroine (Dwyn Innes) who is hiding from her exasperating yet loving sisters and climbs a tree. Thinking she won’t be able to get down he climbs up after her and some fun bantering goes back and forth, some kissing and instant attraction between the two. Dwyn. After some interactions with each other, Geordie is sure that he wants Dwyn for his wife but when it becomes apparent that someone is trying to harm her, he will do whatever it takes to keep her safe and his. But there is an enemy of theirs who seeks Dwyn family’s land and will do whatever it takes to get them. Geordie and Dwyn will have to rely on their own intellect and capabilities to overcome the danger and find the future together…
What a fabulous story we have here, I simply loved so many things. Now I wouldn’t say its my favorite of the series because the first few books still hold the trophies on that, however, I had such a fun time with this book and these endearing characters. One of the strongest traits in Lynsay Sand’s writing is how she writes such compelling characters that you just find so drawn to and I found myself falling in love with Geordie and Dwyn and honestly didn’t want to see their story end. They capture the heart so easily and even though I wished there could have been more plot built up (not as strong as some of the previous books) it was still a solid read and quite an entertaining ride.
Overall I found Hunting For A Highlander to be a sweet yet lively romance set in the highlands that captivates the reader with wit, crazy family machinations, a villain here and there and a romance which captures the heart!!
