Highland Wolf: Highland Brides (Highland Brides, 10)

New York Times Bestselling Author Lynsay Sands delivers another sexy historical romance set in the wilds of the Highlands

In all her daydreams about her wedding day, Lady Claray MacFarlane never once imagined being dragged to the altar by her greedy uncle and forced to marry a man she didn't know. But that's what happened, or would have, had a Highland warrior not snatched her up at the last minute and ridden off with her in his arms. . .

They call him the Wolf. The mercenary's courage and prowess in battle are known throughout the Highlands, and with his handsome face and black-as-sin hair, he is as intelligent and deadly as the wolf he was named for…

But the Wolf is also Claray's betrothed. Thought to have been killed as a child, he's been in hiding all these years. Now he's determined to earn enough coin to rebuild his home, reclaim his birthright, and honor his marriage contract to Claray. For he's fallen for the tender-hearted lass…and he will do anything to protect her and their future together. 

Editorial Reviews

"You can't help but fall in love with Lynsay Sands!" -- Christina Dodd

"Lush, lively and romantic-Lynsay Sands hits all the right notes." -- Suzanne Enoch, New York Times bestselling author

"Highland Treasure completely swept me up with its exciting plot and wonderful cast of characters right from the first page. Lynsay Sands outdid herself with this latest installment in her Highland Brides series which was all about fan favorite (and mine!!) Rory Buchanan . . . With its compelling storyline and slow burn romance, Highland Treasure was thrilling, heartfelt foray back to England and the Scottish Highlands." -- Harlequin Junkies

"Suspenseful 14th-century romance . . . page-turning, propulsive." -- BookPage on Highland Treasure

"Highland Treasure is Sands at her best. Whether it's her trademark belly rolling humor, the edge of your seat danger or the sweet romance, you'll be thoroughly entertained, start to finish." -- Fresh Fiction

Have read every one of the books in this series and the slide downwards and deterioration writing in this book and the one before is really evident. The tenuous connection to the previous books in the series initially seemed promising. Wonderful to see Laird McKay's nephew Bryson reappear and to be given a reasonable explanation why he was a mercenary. The heroine seemed to be lively and with some character but the literal non-stop rescue animals very quickly lost their initial humour and became utterly tiresome. We get it she likes animals. The name of the horse was not even remotely funny just grossly stupid. It is supposed to be a book for Adults but silly animals names like Squeak and Stupid B'stard are more suited to a children's book. Page and pages of thoughts to the point of tedious tiresome PROSE. Detailed explanations. It was all "Tell" as opposed to "Show". Very little action compared to previous books. The ENTIRE story is pulled together entirely on enjoying coupling and the Church teachings but have read other novels that dealt with this point so much much better. One Character did such an about-turn in personality it was just unbelievable and laughable, like "Really"! This book just didn't work and in the end, one felt that someone else had gone through the manuscript and gutted the story, the characters and most importantly of all the action. Am greatly disappointed. Cannot recommend it. Felt like someone else wrote it.

Please whatever you do ..don't quit writing. Loved the "beasties". You weave your magic through humor & the characters in your books. I for one am very grateful. It makes my day when I read one or read several of your books. Makes my troubles seem lesser. Again thank you!😍 D
I like how the plot formed in making a awesome romance between the Wolf and Cloray. The suspense and mystery killer will leave one constantly trying to figure out "who done it. " I recommend this book to all who can enjoy a bundle of romance, suspense and mystery. Lynsay Sands is an awesome author.

I have loved Lynsay Sands since reading The Loving Daylights about 20 years ago. I then started with Single White Vampire and from then on, anything she wrote. She's a prolific writer and infuses each book with a whimsical fun. I especially Iove a lot of the historical romances. Highland Wolf is the tenth (possibly the last) in the series. While I enjoyed it and it followed the same formula as the others, it was just missing that special Lynsay Sands spark. I'm still happy I purchased it and I still read it in one sitting. Books are unique to each person and even their mindset when reading them. So while I rated this book at 3 stars, it may be 5 stars to everyone else.
Lynsay Sands is a wonderful author. Her writing style is simple to understand and the pace of her novels are natural. Overall a great story teller. I liked the hero of this novel a lot! He was patient and kind. He was protective of the heroine and a bit possessive at times. The heroine is an animal lover and definitely caused a few chuckles over her escapades. This story held my attention easily with lingering questions from the hero's youth. His family was murdered and he lived with a target on his back his entire life; forced to take on a different identity. He rescues the heroine from an unwanted marriage and soon reveals he is actually her betrothed. Of course once he comes forward the enemy does too! No cheating or ow/om drama Descriptive bedroom scenes
