Four Buchanan brothers have found their brides…only three more to go in this scintillating romance from New York Times bestselling author Lynsay Sands…
Lady Dwyn Innes feels utterly out of place among the eligible women who’ve descended on Buchanan Keep, vying for the attention of the last unmarried brothers. She isn’t long-legged and slender like her sisters, or flirtatious and wily like other lasses. Since her betrothed died, Dwyn has resigned herself to becoming an old maid. Yet a chance encounter with a stranger in the orchard awakens her to a new world of sensation and possibility…
After weeks away, Geordie Buchanan returns to find his home swarming with potential brides, thanks to his loving but interfering family. But one lass in particular draws his attention from the moment he spies her climbing a tree. Lady Dwyn is not nearly as plain as she thinks. Her lush figure and eager kisses delight him, as does her honesty. But the real test lies ahead: eliminating a hidden enemy, so that he and Dwyn can seal their Highland passion with a vow.
I liked Hunting for a Highlander for the most part. It was sexy and I’m a sucker for a romance where the woman most people would overlook gets the guy. While it wasn’t perfect, it had some good moments.
I liked Dwyn and Geordie together. While they had chemistry we got scenes of them getting to know each other and really form feelings for each other. I have to admit that once they started getting physical it felt like it A LOT. I know the author said that this book would be sexier than the others but goodness! Also, I am sick of hearing about her breasts! Did women not have bigger breasts back then? Enough for it to be all the women AND men talked about?
As most of the books in the series, someone is trying to sabotage our couple. While I am all for suspense in my books, I did feel like this one dragged on for a bit. It’s like that part in a horror movie when you realize the villain just won’t die. Terrible comparison, but you know what I mean. I felt like the author kept throwing in situations just to keep the drama going, but I was ready for it to be over.
Overall, I liked it. I did have some issues with it but, we know that I love highlanders and this family is a favorite so I will read the next one and I hope that it’s Rory’s story.
