An English Bride in Scotland (Scottish Highlanders Series #1) by Lynsay Sands

From New York Times bestselling author of The Husband Hunt, The Heiress, and other beloved historical romances, comes Lynsay Sands’s An English Bride in Scotland, the first book in a new series set in the wilds of the Highlands.
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.

Another “hysterical historical” from one of my favorite authors. Poor Annabel is packed up at the tender age of 7 and sent to live in a convent. Now 14 years later she is still a novice and has yet to take the veil. She isn't a very good nun. (Think Maria from The Sound of Music). All that is changed when her elder sister runs away with the stable masters son leaving her parents in a lurch. They had promised their eldest to marry Ross MacKay and he has come to collect. So Annabel is abruptly pulled from the abbey to take her place. She is totally unprepared to be a wife and lady of the manor. But those things that made her a bad nun may be just what she will need to the wife of the MacKay. Now if the big guy in the plaid would stop trying to kidnap her. This is a sweet, funny romance. It is obvious that Ms. Sands has done her research and had a great deal of fun with it. A little romance, a little mystery and a whole lot of fun.

Reviewed by Guest Reviewer/Kimberly & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog Having been sent to a convent when she was merely a child, by her seemingly unloving parents, Annabel, aside from some “behavioral” issues, was well on her way to taking the veil, until an abrupt and surprise visit from her mother after fourteen years. Annabel soon realizes that her mother has plans for her and they aren’t out of love for her daughter either. Annabel, in place of her sweet, demure and perfect sister, is to marry a great Scottish beast, Ross MacKay, and why does Annabel have to be sacrificed? Her lovely sister has disgraced her parents and run off with the stable master’s son. So instead of being a bride of the church, Annabel is set to become the bride of Ross MacKay. Ross MacKay has set off to his prospective bride’s holding with several of his trustworthy men. He soon finds out that he is being tricked by Annabel’s parents, but upon seeing her innocence and beauty, decides to marry her anyway, and once he sees that her parents are not the nicest of people, Ross whisks Annabel off to her new home is Scotland. Unfortunately, no happily ever after ensues, for Annabel finds herself in harms way more than once on her journey and upon arriving in her new homeland. When Annabel’s runaway sister shows up on her doorstep, begging forgiveness on one hand, and flirting with Ross on the other,we find things are not as they should be. Even though it was pre-ordained for Ross to marry, he does his best to make Annabel aware that he will be a good and caring husband. Annabel, on the other hand, hasn’t had much to do with the outside world. She is innocent in many ways and also feels the sting of her parent’s rejection still after fourteen year. She in no way sees herself as bright and beautiful as those around her do, and even tries to fight the feelings that Ross has for her, even those she bears for him. An English Bride in Scotland by Lynsay Sands has all the makings of a fast paced historical romance. Ross and Annabel are fabulous characters with such depth and feeling. In a time, where there are so many Scottish historical romances out there, this one stands out for its romance, its antagonists and its tale. Ross’ protectiveness of his new bride from the first leaves an impression and Annabel’s sense of humor and her inquisitiveness makes her a great heroine. I thoroughly enjoyed Lynsay Sands An English Bride in Scotland and I think you will as well. *ARC provided by publisher

An English Bride in Scotland by Lynsay Sands (Audio Edition) Narrated by Mary Jane Wells Series: Highlanders #1 4 stars - This story felt like one of the highland romances that I first fell in love with. It was easy to love the characters, and easy to hate the enemies. Add in some witty dialogue, humour and sweet chemistry and I say it's a win! If you're a fan of Julie Garwood’s highland romances, I think you would enjoy this book. Mary Jane Wells did a wonderful job on narration as always! ~Paragraphs and Petticoats~

  I've just started reading Lynsay Sands books and have not been disappointed.  I loved the story, the characters and the ending. It was refreshing to see that beauty is in the eye of the beholder and that you can't judge a book by it's cover.
