From the Back Cover

Only one man could set her heart ablaze . . .

Lady Averill Mortagne learned to control her fierce temper as a young girl. But if her father insists on parading her before one more English lord who looks askance at her flame-colored hair, she'll simply scream! Her only respite is the time she spends with Kade Stewart, the wounded Scot her brother brought home from the Crusades. Who could have imagined a Highland warrior would be the only gentleman around?

Lady Averill helped save his life, and for that Kade is truly grateful. She is also almost unbearably beautiful, but he could never subject such a sweet and gentle lady to the rough life of a Stewart laird's bride . . . or could he? When she braves an unexpected danger by his side, Averill will prove to Kade that her heart is as fiery as her hair . . . and that submitting to their scorching passion would be heaven indeed.

Customer Reviews

The hero seems dull and the heroine very silly.
Amazon Customer
I appreciated the fact that the hero and heroine of the story cared about each other throughout the book.
Filled with humour and plenty of sweet suspenseful romance, I loved this story from beginning to end.

This is the 3rd novel in LS's highland series. 1. Devil of the Highlands 2.Taming the Highland Bride.

Kade is a Scottish warrior on the mend at his good friend's castle in England. Averill has been caring for Kade in between parading around for English lord's hoping to find a husband. But the Englishmen seem to find charms laking. Kade likes Averill from the beginning but thinks she may be too timid/sensitive to stand up to his drunken brothers and father back at home. (See Taming the Highland Bride for same drunk brothers and father). After a hilarious run in with a portly English lord, Averill unknowingly proves her spunk to Kade and thus he decides they will marry. She on the other hand is not so sure.

Kade makes plans to travel back to Scotland to take over as laird. His father's inebriated ways have turned the castle to ruins and most of the people have fled. Someone has other plans for Kade and is attempting to murder him. Averill and Kade must work together to find the killer and make a life together.

There are some great characters in this book that I look forward to seeing in future books. Look for a brief meeting with Tavis, from Devil of the Highlands. I'm hoping he'll be in an upcoming book. Hopefully as someone's hero. Can't wait for the next one!!!

This is a great-reading book. The romance and developing feelings of the characters are believable. And the author does an outstanding job at capturing the time period and the Scottish brogue of her characters. The scenes flow well and it really keeps your attention. I really can't think of anything negative to say about the book. It's just a great read! Lynsay Sands is now one of my favorite authors (this was the first book of hers that I've read)!

This book is not too exciting past the first couple of chapters.

The heroine is true to her virginal status. In addition, she lacks self confidence and esteem and I did not conclude that she overcame these emotional issues.

Surely, readers can fall in love with the hero, but based on the heroine's physical and emotional description, I do not see why the hero falls in love with the heroine; other than the fact the he totally loved the stories about the heroine from his captive friend and fellow crusader which also happens to be the heroine's brother.

The only realistic aspect of the book was the fact that the heroine remained true to her virginal character and qualities, but you could not conclude that these two protagonists held long deep desires and passion for one another; they only consummate their marriage and relive the experience at the end of the book due to too many attempts on the hero's life when he initiates romance with his wife (VERY unrealistic for a hero being caught fighting long and hard for years in the crusades and finds himself suddenly and agreeably wed. If he really was in deep passionate love with his new bride as he claims later on in the story, nothing would've kept him apart from continuing his intimacies with her.

The author seemed to have needed to fill up the pages of this book with three attempts on the hero's life and his unending duty to take over as clan laird by setting his father and brothers straight in their drunken lives. The description to this read can only be described as cute and sweet, but not suspenseful and lacking in reality within the time period.

Another good book thought I find she uses some of the same things in her books. I also find in some her her books one of the 2 main characters is hurt over and over, and wonder sometimes how they make it through the book. In this third book of the series, besides being humorous, I found myself almost embarrassed for Averill in her inadequate attempts to please her husband. However Kade handles it pretty well. He should just tell her himself what he wants. The characters are pretty good. Sometimes I find Averill also childish, but still likeable. Kade is the typical hero. Strong and slient, yet still has a kind heart.

I would have also liked her to have included Kade and Merry's reunion in the book, though it was not necessary. All in all I liked the book. It had its humorous parts just like her other books.

Evelinde and Cullen make a brief appearance in this book as well. They also briefly mention Travis. I would like Travis to have his own book. It is obvious in this book that he has changed after everything that happened in the first book. However if you give Travis a book, you could also include a book for Will. Of course he would have to have a Scottish bride to make the Highland series.

It hit all the right notes, nothing exceptional though.

Avy has got carrot colored hair and a birthmark, small one, that apparently make her the spawn of the devil - marks her as one with a fiery temper and so she's become insecure about herself bc all the english lords refuse to have her as a wife. Her Father, for the brief time he's in the book, struck me as ridiculous. Enough said on that.

Kade is one of the good guys, back from the crusades after being imprisoned and treated as a slave, he's Avy's brother's friend. She takes care of him while he's recuperating. He ends up marrying her.

Some intrigue starts about mid-way through. Not all that intriguing. Kade has A happen, then B, then C, then D. Miraculously never suffering greatly and recuperating fast enough for the next thing to happen. The culprit just confesses. And the book ends.

Nothing new and exciting happens in this genre anymore...I keep picking up more of the same hoping for something better.
