Highland Wolf: Highland Brides by [Lynsay Sands]
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. 

Review

Claray is being forced to marry a horrible guy by her uncle, when the legendary warrior The Wolf or Conall as he is known by family rides to her rescue.. Turns out her father realized what her sleezy uncle was up to and sent Conall to the save her.. Turns out they have been betrothed since her birth, but Claray and most everyone else thought he was dead.. Killed along with his family and the rest of his people when he was six years old.

While he would have loved to marry Claray years ago, he has been off trying to make some money so that he can rebuid his keep, hire servants and bring his people home. When he realizes that they have some sizzling chemistry he decides that he should marry her quickly.. in part to help keep her safe from that other dude, but mostly so that she doesn’t end up with someone else… or becoming a nun…

I loved Claray and her need to rescue every lost/ abandoned animal she finds.. I also loved that Conall just lets her do it.. He just sighs and says all right, and even helps her feed and take care of them while she sleeps.. Which is something she does alot of while they are traveling.. apparently it makes her sleepy even when she is the one holding the reins lol..

I loved seeing them come together, even though they married pretty quicky they just clicked with each other.. Turns out though that while they are busy falling in love, and repairing the keep, someone is in the shadows trying to kill them.. Could it have to do with Clarays almost forced marriage? or does it have anything to do with what happened to Conalls family all those years ago? Could that killer have returned after all this time?

Lynsay Sands is one of my favorite authors and I can’t wait to see who is going to be the next couple that gets their HEA..

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book, all opinions are my own
