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.
Ever since I read LOVE IS BLIND by Lynsay Sands, I was hooked on her stories! For me, it's a no-brainer to grab her latest historical as soon as it's released, because I know that even though she rarely deviates from her tried and true recipe, I will always finish reading with a big smile on my face.
Claray and Wolf's story is no exception. Yes, our heroine is a magnet for calamity with unknown villains lurking around the corner, requiring the gruff hero to become her protector while falling for her many charms and yes, that unknown villain is predictably someone close to the hero/heroine when finally revealed, but it's all the bits in between that make a story by Ms. Sands so good.
When you read a story that can literally make you laugh out loud or bite your nails in anticipation, it doesn't matter if some bits are predictable, because there is comfort in that as well, especially these days.
I remain Ms. Sands biggest fan and look forward with anticipation to whatever new tales she weaves in the future.
