Descripción

New York Times bestselling author Lynsay Sands welcomes readers back to the Scottish Highlands, where a gallant warrior vows to protect a beautiful runaway . . .

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 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.

    Falling For The Highlander by Lynsay Sands (Audiobook)Narrated by: Elle NewlandsSeries: Highland Brides book 44 Stars - Lady Murine was a strong heroine, even when dealing with a weakness. Dougall was a great match, he cared for her, helped to cure her and stayed by her side. The two had good chemistry and I loved watching them fall in love. Elle Newlands did a wonderful job as narration. ~Paragraphs and Petticoats~

    SummaryLady Murine hasn't had the best of luck in her life. She has fond memories of her parents and brothers. But they were killed and she was left having her step brother as her guardian. A brother that would try to sell her in return for horses. So when she tries to run away on her prized bull, she meets up with the man that her brother attempted to sell her to. Dougall Bouchann is is just fine with his current status as being unmarried but when he meets Murine his view on marriage slowly starts to change. He knows that Murine deserves better than what he can give her, but he also can't deny how strong his feelings for her have grown. But they are being hunted and must go into hiding and Dougall has to find a way to marry her in secret so that her brother can't get to her. But there is a enemy out there far worse than her brother, and will Dougall and Murine figure out the truth in time?Plot and Story LineThis was such a fun and sweet story....its a romance that is lighthearted and quirky and gives you a fun respite from reality, the kind of break you need that only Lynsay Sands can give you. Now this is the fourth book in the series and I have really enjoy these group of highlanders and their feisty women that match them in every way. In Falling For The Highlander, we get Murine (who is one of Sidhe's friends) and our grouchy Dougall. I have seen him in previous books and was so thrilled to see him as the hero for this one. And the group of brothers here that join Dougall...they were a riot. Its not necessarily a story that will stay with you for many years. But it is a fun filled romance that leaves you with a smile on your face. I really liked the way the plot in this one developed. We have mystery surrounding the romance that gives the reader an added bonus. It was interesting seeing this story play out and what I have admired about Sands is how she adds humor and lighthearted romance in a rich and detailed historical setting. Not many can do it the way she can. And I am so very eager for the next book.The CoverLOVE this cover so very much....I just have a thing for Scots in Kilts but I love his pose and the back pose---yummy!!!Overall ViewFalling For The Highlander is entertaining, lively and rich in setting....a romance you can get behind!!! A DELIGHT

    Fun book. We first met Murine and Dougall in the previous book, The Highlander Takes a Bride. Murine and Saidh became good friends, with Murine having a big part in saving Saidh's life. Dougall is one of Saidh's seven brothers. He and his brothers were fun characters, especially with the way they had influenced Saidh while she was growing up. The closeness of the family impressed me in that book, and I hoped to see some of the Buchanan brothers get their own books. This one is a good start to that wish.Murine has had a rough few years. Her beloved younger brothers and one older half-brother have died. Her mother became ill and also died. Though her father had been sick, he was getting better just before she went on the journey in the previous book. Unfortunately, her father died suddenly while she was gone, leaving her in the care of her remaining half-brother, Montrose. Montrose is weak, lazy, selfish, and a gambler. As the book opens, he is attempting to talk the owner of some Scottish horses into giving him credit so he can purchase the horses. Failing that, he offers up Murine for the Scotsman's pleasure instead. The Scotsman in question is Dougall Buchanan, brother to Saidh. He is disgusted by Montrose and his attempts to weasel out of paying, and even more so by the attempts to sell his sister. He can't get out of there fast enough to suit him or his brothers.Horrified by her brother's plans for her, Murine immediately packed a few things and left, determined to go to her friend Saidh for help. Next thing we see is Murine riding her pet bull up the road as Dougall and his brothers overtake her. Recognizing her right away, Dougall and his brothers hide her when her brother's men come looking for her. Unfortunately, their methods brought on one of her fainting fits, leaving them no choice but to take her with them. By the time she finally comes to, they are well away from her home. I liked Dougall's decision to help her even before he found out about her connection to his sister. That connection made it even more important to all of the men. Dougall did not expect his attraction to her, and that attraction made him even more protective of her. It was sweet to see the way that he worried about her and her fainting fits. It was fun to see all the guys falling over themselves to take care of her, especially once they figured out the reason for her fainting.I enjoyed the development of the relationship between Murine and Dougall. He was attracted to her from the moment he saw her but tried to resist due to differences in their stations. However, that resistance was futile as the sparks between them continued to grow. Murine was attracted to him also, but having heard him say he had no plans to marry any time soon, also tried to resist the sparks. It didn't take long for the idea of marrying her to gain in appeal for Dougall, though it took a while for him to let her in on that decision. When the sparks became overwhelming, the passion between them was pretty intense. I loved how good they were together, with no regrets afterward.As the group continued their journey, they ran into unexpected trouble. Though they were worried about Montrose attempting to reclaim Murine, there was also something else going on. From strangers in the woods to Murine being shot with an arrow to a fire that nearly killed them all, it seems that someone has it out for either Murine or the Buchanans. I was on the edge of my seat when it came to the fire. Murine was fantastic in her efforts to save Dougall. All of this worked to convince Dougall that he needed to marry Murine sooner rather than later.The suspense built when they got to Saidh, and they anticipated finally getting to confront Montrose. While waiting for that to happen there were some interesting discussions among the men regarding Murine and her troubles. It was all stuff that was blazingly obvious to a reader, but I enjoyed seeing the men work it all out. The final confrontation had a couple of unexpected twists to it, but in the end, Murine was safe. I was a little dissatisfied with the ending, as I felt that it left the fate of the Carmichael clan up in the air. In his fears for Murine's safety, I loved seeing Dougall finally admit his feelings for her.I loved seeing more of the Buchanan brothers. They were quite an impressive group. It was fun to see them falling all over themselves to take care of Murine. I especially enjoyed Conran and the way he gave Dougall such a hard time over his interest in Murine. Alrick was fun as the youngest and his occasional cluelessness. I'm most interest in Aulay and what happened to him. I look forward to reading his story.

    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.*ARC supplied by publisher.

    I should know better than to buy a book because of the picture on the cover. Luckily it worked out in this case. I can't say it's the best I've read in romance but it was very good. I really liked how the female is the one who keeps saving lives instead of the males. I also enjoyed how well the males excepted being saved. The romance is steamy and I found myself hoping it would all work out. It's worth the read.

    For me, the first half was more entertaining than the second half. I liked Sands humor and will try one of her other novels. Dougall was kinda complain-y about being in love.
