Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Lynsay Sands welcomes listeners 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.

Light and entertaining

Featuresna quirky but strong female lead. Male lead is likable. Good story with intriguing twists and plenty of danger. I recommend it for those who are looking for something sweet.

Good but not great by Lynsay Sands

It's not one of my favorite books by Lynsay Sands. I took some time to be done with it. The characters was a bit boring, Which is a pity, given the storryline is ideal for a realy good book.

Yess!!

Thank you Lyndsay Sands for this wonderful story. I admit I binged on this audio book, finishing it in about three days. Elle Newlands is such a great storyteller, illustrating the characters in my mind perfectly. I would highly recommend!

Contrived and Unbelievable

I love Lyndsay Sands however this was not well done, there was what was suppose to be suspense at every corner that was contrived as if there was no real plot. The h faints at the drop of a hat yet thinks nothing of seeing a strange man in the woods all the time, not once but several times and she says nothing. The h well naive to the point of stupidity while the H well nothing interesting about him either. It took 3 weeks to read when normally 2 days, however it just angered me, so I would put the book down or skip through the chapters to get past the contrived plot that was drawn out. There were to many major characters with speaking rolls also.

Good.

I liked this story very much. I loved Murine and her fainting. I didn't find the fainting gag over done. Good narration.

Loved Listening! Bring back the female narrators!

I've loved listening to book 1, 3, & 4 in this series, but have found the male narrators for the next two books so bad I couldn't get through the first chapters. I refurbish furniture and listen to a lot of books during in the day, and I'm really sad I'll have to skip the rest of this series. I really wish whoever hires Lynsay Sands historical romance narrators would go back to the female narrators they hired for the first few books. They are amazing, and I adored listening to those books!

Gotta love a good highland story.

Falling For The Highlander by Lynsay Sands (Audiobook)
Narrated by: Elle Newlands
Series: Highland Brides book 4

4 Stars - Lady Murine was a strong heroine, even when she has a weakness. Dougall was a great match, he cared for her, helped to cure her and stayed by her side. The two had good chemistry and I loved watching them fall in love.

Elle Newlands did a wonderful job as narration.

Narrator/accents Brings Story Alive

I LOVE her Argenaeu camp series and this is my first LS's historical romance book. So glad I got Audible and ebook for immersion reading • read with Scottish brogue which I definitely can't do in my head and do be character to life Like a movie in my imagination. Love it. Very different from the paranormal romances but in a good way. I'm excited to read more about the highlander clans, more Bucchans finding their soulmate and not skimping on intrigue and recommend getting the Audible narration of you have a spare credit .
