“You can’t help but fall in love with Lynsay Sands!”
—Christina Dodd

 

Once again, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Lynsay Sands displays another side of her extraordinary talent with The Hellion and the Highlander, a sensuous and wonderfully witty love story set in the breathtaking countryside of Scotland. The tremendously popular author of the Argeneau paranormal vampire romance series, Sands is equally adept at historical romance, as she demonstrates in her third Highland romp, perfect for fans of Julie Garwood, Jill Barnett, and Teresa Medieros—and a delightful companion to her own Devil of the Highlands and Taming the Highland Bride.

Averill Montgagne nurses comatose Kade Stewart who saved her brother Will when both were prisoners for three years. When Kade talks to her, she knows he is healing after two weeks of being unconscious. He got them along with his cousin Ian and two others out of the Infidel prison and to England only to be hurt when their boat crashed. He learns three men have rejected his nurse; her dad has arranged for another oaf to meet her. She has red hair and the devil's mark on her cheek as well as she stammers when nervous. Will tells Kade the English reject her due to her stammer and hair color. Kade likes Averill, but she lacks the spirit he needs when he challenges his drunkard dad for the laird of Stewart. Her dad hides her hair and mark and makes her drunk so she will not stammer when she meets Lord Seawell who is nasty to Averill. When his mom calls her ugly and he agrees, she punches him in the nose and pukes all over them before leaving. Kade tells Will he will marry Averill. He tells her she is pretty and they agree to marry. After the wedding, she is nervous over the bedding so he uses fruit to relax her before they make love. They leave for Stewart with Will and his men as their escorts. The place is a disaster as his father and two brothers are drunks. Averill adds drops to their whisky making them puke whenever they drink while someone tries to kill Kade, but had not counted on his ferocious wife. The story line is exciting and fast-paced as the lead couple is a nice pairing since he enjoys her clever mind. The humor involving to tup or not to tup adds fun to an entertaining historical although the villain once revealed proves to be a weak character. Harriet Klausner

OMG this book was HILARIOUS! The whole discussion of the "piffle" had me crying I was laughing so hard! I have dubbed poor Averill "Calamity Jane"...the more she tried the worse the situations became. (much to my delight and amusement!) This book just makes me LOVE Lynsay all the more!(

I'd like to start by saying that I'm typically a massive Sands fan and have read pretty much everything she's released since her first Argenou novel. However, this book was just kind of so-so for me. While I found the beginning of it quite sweet and I really enjoyed the beginning parts of their falling for one another, once they've actually married, the story kind of fell flat for me. I felt like the whole 'someone is trying to kill him everywhere he goes and it's someone you know' is getting kind of over-killed in this little trilogy she has. (ie the first book of the series "Devil of the Highlands") I didn't feel connected with the characters after they left, or the plotline. It felt kind of like a sweet love story and then like the plot line was an after thought, and when it got thrown in, the romance was forgotten. Sands' normally steamy scenes were pretty much gone for me as well. I don't know if it's because I've read so much of her work that it's just seeming repetitive or if it was just simply bland, but I was fairly disappointed by the end of the book. It was an okay read, but not worth re-reading for me. (I also wish I had gotten it from the library rather than bought it)

Charming.......................................................... Sweet story-----------except for the fact someone is trying to kill him. And he's from a highly dysfunctional family. But not to worry she has his back. Pretty good read. I'd try the rest of the series.

I love the entire series. Her heroes are often misunderstood and her heroines are often smart and feisty.
