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.

Good but end needed more

I have only listened to two of Lynsay Sands books. But in both books I felt the end needed more work. Other then that it was well written, funny, suspenseful and strong. Well worth the read

Really enjoyed this book!

I felt I needed to write a review as an earlier negative review put me off listening to this book for months. I loved the 3 earlier books of this series so felt compelled to complete the set in the end.

I am so glad I did!! I just LOVED it!

It's funny, sweet and charming. Lynsey Sands knows how to write a great book.

Wouldn’t recommend...

The narrator was great but the story was too slow and not very entertaining. No humour and I think Henry (the bull) was the best bit about it.

HER SAVIOUR

Lynsay Sands writes Historical Mortal work just as Greatly as she does Her Modern Day Immortal work.
And Elle Newlands narrates brilliantly. The Best Narrator I've heard so far 📖😁

Not much is happening

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Not really, it was an easy listen, but nothing to recommend.

If you’ve listened to books by Lynsay Sands before, how does this one compare?

My favourite is Loving daylights, of this series An english bride is my favourite and much better.

What does Elle Newlands bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

I think I would not have read the whole book, but listening it while doing something else did mean I did finish it after all.

Was Falling for the Highlander worth the listening time?

I listen to books while I am doing stuff arround the house and it is hard to find enough stuff to listen to, so it was ok.

Any additional comments?

There were some strands in the story that where not followed up, which I always find annoying.
