Description from

Annabel had planned to become a nun. But when her mother arrives at the Abbey to bring her home to marry a Scottish laird—her runaway sister’s intended husband—her life takes a decidedly different turn.

And though Annabel isn’t the wife he’d planned for, strong, sexy Ross McKay is taken with his shy, sweet bride.

Annabel knows nothing about being a wife, running a castle—or the marriage bed. But her handsome new husband makes her want to learn. When Annabel’s life is threatened, Ross vows to move the highlands itself to save her and preserve the passion that’s only beginning to bloom.


This book is a light, fuss-free, easy evening read.  No it isn’t a short book; it is just one that reads fast.  Lynsay Sands writes light and light-hearted romances both historical and paranormal.  She is accomplished at putting a story onto the page and this book had a good story.  I liked Annabel in the first part of the book, she was naïve, innocent intelligent and a bit head strong; a character you could really get behind.  But later on she became this person who continually made stupid, dangerous decisions and she became a total disappointment.  Annabel’s sister, Kate, was so over the top as to be unbelievable.  Ross, the Laird, is written well and we can believe and understand all his actions. I recommend this book for fans of Lynsay Sands, and those who like their romances in a light and somewhat silly vein.
