Series: Highland Brides #7 Rating: 4*
Lady Evina MacLean had heard all the stories describing Rory Buchanan’s skill as a healer. Now, with her father so near death she had no choice but to go and beg him to come and save her father’s life! However, when she came upon the Buchanan washing up in a waterfall, she couldn’t believe how handsome he was all naked and wet. Evina sent in her man to bring him out from under the falls when a fight ensued with Buchanan not knowing who was dragging him from the falls assumed he was a bandit. The Buchanan put up quite a struggle and rather than see her man hurt Lady Evina knocked him out with the hilt of her sword. Granted she did hit him pretty hard – but time was of the essence! Evina had to get him home before her father perished, so while still naked, he was strapped over his horse and raced back home to Evina’s castle.
Unfortunately, what Evina did not know was that she had not taken Rory Buchanan but his brother Conran. While he was not the healer Rory was, Conran did have some healing skills learned from his brother. But rather than explain the mistake, Conran just did what he knew to do and tended to her his patient and after a few hours, he had discovered the cause and proceeded to bring the man’s fever down.
*** In Lynsay Sands’ novels you will always find some feisty heroines, hunky heroes, and lots of laugh out loud moments and THE WRONG HIGHLANDER is no exception! From the ride back with Conran’s naked butt and Evina’s hand hanging on to his cheek to keep him from falling off, to the miscommunication involving her marital state and the picnic in the tall grasses the reader will experience a whole range of emotions! Adding in a plethora of lovely secondary characters also added to the total enjoyment of the read.
Yet all was not right and someone was trying to kill Lady Evina. Just when you think you know what’s going on there will be red herrings tossed in to make you think otherwise. And you can always remember that what you think is obvious is not going to be the answer. However, what you can count on is a simply terrific and engaging sensual novel that will allow a whole range of emotions to be let loose with dynamic and creative writing.
