Her brother's near mortal wounding hadn't done it. Fleeing to the rolling hills of the Highlands had failed as well. And while being captured by the most dangerous-looking Scotsmen she'd ever imagined had come close, it was staring up at two of the thickest, most well-muscled thighs she'd ever seen that drove Kyla over the edge. But the madness that overwhelmed her felt st...more
Our heroine (Kyla) is abducted by our hero (Galen) as he steals her from the man who killed his wife who happens to also be the man to whom Kyla is betrothed (against her wishes). This is his Sweet Revenge. The premis isn't new but the story is like a situation comedy, the misunderstanding between men who act like real men and the women who have t ...more
Kyla is on her way to be married, when her travelling party is attacked and Laird Galen MacDonald kidnaps her and marries her himself as revenge against his enemy (Kyla's intended). This is actually a good thing, as the man Kyla is supposed to m ...more
I’m honestly too lazy to write the kind of review this book deserves. It was fun, funny, adventurous and very entertaining. I always love Ms Sands characters. The names of these seem familiar from her newer Highlander series but perhaps I just listen to too many books and I’m getting confused.
Over all this is a solid listen. The narrator is great and the material is also.
The Random Thoughts:
This one resourceful lady that diabolical plotters can't seem to pin down long let alone keep hold of. Lots of twists to hold interest & fun to be had as the confusion of events unravel amongst rumours of madness.
The story is pretty basic (view spoiler)[ Kyla (doesn't sound like a period name) and her brother Johnny are attacked while having a picnic one afternoon and both are badly wounded. Johnny's evil wife takers the opportunity to send Kyla to Scot ...more
Per sbarazzarsi della scomoda cognata, Catriona promette in sposa la bellissima Kyla al perfido MacGregor. Pur essendo febbricitante, la fanciulla parte così per la Scozia, ma durante il viaggio il nobile Galen MacDonald, folgorato dalla sua bellezza, decide di rapirla e di sposarla seduta stante. Semi incosciente al momento delle nozze, al risveglio la giovane non ricorda nulla dell'accaduto e, pur sentendosi attratta dall'aitante scozzese, decide di impedire che il matrimonio v ...more
I'd prefer her not to have been so ridiculously defiant, but overall the characters were likable and it was a good read.
While most people would view being kidnapped as a terrible way to end an already bad day, for Kyla it means she is saved from being forced to marry a man she despises. Unfortunately, this further means that she is now married to her kidnapper- a highland warrior she doesn't even know. Never fear, in true Sands tradition, after much hilarity, confusion, suspense, and passion, Kyla and Galen eventually wind up exactly where- and with whom- th ...more
Auf dem Weg zu ihrem zukünftigen Ehemann, dem Anführer des MacGregor-Clans, wird Kyla vom MacDonald-Clan entführt und mit dem Laird verheiratet. Dieser wollte eigentlich nur seinem Erzfeind eins auswischen, doch schon nach kurzer Zeit fühlt er sich zu der tapferen Lady und ihrem Temperament hingezogen. Auch Kyla ist nicht unbedingt abgeneigt, fühlt sich aber, durch die starke Bewachung aus Furcht vor MacGregor, ziemlich eingeengt.

Unfortunately I was in a reading slump when this book showed up, so even though I was thrilled to have it, I didn’t read it right away. I didn’t want to force myself to read something I wasn’t in the mood for and end up hating it. So last week when I was finally in the mood f ...more
It's one thing being active, brave and confident and another, totally different, acting too fatally reckless, dashing into any possibly lethal situation with no second thought. The latter is plain stupid.
And it's the kind this heroine is made of.
I got tired of her near-death escapades and almost felt sorry for the hero, forced to save her from herself again and again.
I didn't enjoy the book.
