To Marry a Scottish Laird by Lynsay Sands (Audio Edition)

Narrated by Keiran Elliott
Series: Highlanders #2

♥ ♥  I don’t like giving negative reviews, but sadly this book was a disappointment. Not much happens. The plot had loads of potential and I wish the story had progressed farther before he found out the lad was a lass… Feels like there are some missed opportunities for funny situations.  Joan seems constantly reluctant and unsure of her worth even when Cam has reassured her.  By three quarters of the way through it started to feel like the author was just filling space… she would say the same thing in 5 different ways.

The narrator has a nice voice, however, I don't find him too engaged in the story. He has a different pace to his reading, which by the end almost seemed like he was somewhat bored with the story. So, honestly that probably took away from the story for me as well. As I see many good reviews for this book.. Perhaps skip the audio version and try the book/ebook version instead.

With that said, I am still looking forward to the next in the series, the narrator is a good one and the the plot seems promising!

The Blurb:

New York Times bestselling author Lynsay Sands returns to the Highlands of Scotland in her hottest new historical romance yet!

Highlander Campbell Sinclair is no stranger to battle, so when he sees a lad attacked by bandits, he jumps into the fray. He didn't count on being stabbed. Grateful to the boy for nursing him back to health, Cam offers to accompany Jo safely to his destination. But when he accidentally comes across the lad bathing in the river, Cam discovers that Jo is actually Joan...with the most sinful of curves.

Joan promised her mother that she would deliver a scroll to the clan MacKay. But traveling alone is dangerous, even disguised as a boy. When a Scottish warrior lends his aid, she is more than relieved...until he surprises her with lingering kisses and caresses that prove her disguise hasn't fooled him. As their passion ignites, will the secrets of the scroll force a wedding...and lead to a love she's never known?
