for some horses or even worse sell you off for money?
Lady Murine does what most women would do; she runs.
Lady murine is trying to get to her friend's home who
just happens to be the sister of the group of men she
happens upon during her escape. Dougall and his brothers
decide that they are going to protect and help Lady

wants more from Murine and must prove himself to her.
FALLING FOR THE HIGHLANDER is a sweet and fun read. Lady
Murine is a smart woman who is dealing with some hard
circumstances in her life. She fights and does what she
can to survive. Dougall is a good man with a big heart.
The two make a good couple and work well together. As
their adventure goes on it seems that there is a mystery
afoot. They must figure out who is trying to kill them
before they can make it home. I enjoyed watching their
relationship take shape and seeing the two fight for
their love was a nice read. Their story is full of
adventure and humor alongside a good dose of romance and
emotions. It moves at a good pace and kept my attention
all the way to the end.
I loved the interaction between these characters
especially the brothers. I enjoyed these characters and
hope that we get to return to see Dougall's brothers get
their happy ever after's as well. It was fun to see Lady
Murine as a feisty woman and having to deal with all of
her fainting spells. Dougall and Murine's story is full
of fun and a bit of mystery as well. They are on an
adventure of a lifetime and love could be the end for
As always Lynsay Sands pulled me in to another wonderful
world and had me falling for the characters, hoping for
love to win in the end.
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.
