Falling for the Highlander (Highlanders #4)

Falling for the Highlander by Lynsay Sands

Falling for the Highlander (Highlanders #4)

Book Descrition:

Lady Murine Carmichael has known her share of bad luck. But when her debt-ridden half-brother tries to sell her off in exchange for a few Scottish horses, it’s the final straw. If keeping her freedom means escaping through harsh countryside alone, so be it. She has barely begun her journey when she lands an unlikely escort—the brawny Highlander who just refused to buy her virtue.
Dougall Buchanan was disgusted by Lord Danvries’ shameful offer, but Murine herself tempts him beyond measure. Even bedraggled and dusty, the lass glows with beauty and bravery. Dougall wants to do more than just help her flee. He wants to protect her—with his life and his heart—if she’ll only let him. For Murine may be pursued by a powerful foe, but nothing compares to the fiery courage of a Highlander in love

This book was written with Ms Sands usual flair; with great character's, a wonderful mystery, hot romance and comedy.  (I won't soon look at carrots and a loaf of bread in the same way, I'll tell you!!!)  Yes, you have to read the book to find out what I mean by that, I don't want to spoil one of the funniest and most unusual scenes of this type I have ever read!

I liked that we got to revisit some of the character's from past books in this series,  no matter how small a part they played.

Murine finds out that her step-brother is going to use her and her body as a bargaining chip for a pair of horses or auction her off to their cruel neighbor .  Once she realizes that he is never going to stop being a cruel ass-hat she decides to leave on her own (while riding a bull instead of a horse mind you!) and meets up with the Scottish hottie.  He decides to protect her since she is the one who saved his sister Saidh in a previous book.  

But as n all of Lynsay's books...things get a bit complicated and did I say hot?

This was a great read by one of my favorite author's.
