Jul 22, Miriam rated it it was ok Shelves: I didn't give a shit about them or their weak-ass romances or the lame, obvious solution to the "mystery" that everyone else in the town keep there seem to only be like 20 people living here for Duncan to be lord of, which is lucky because he's a dim-bulb has been studiously ignoring for years because solving it just made things awkward for everyone.
Those medieval Scots, so c'est la vie with their public undressing and seducing of teenagers and dis These characters were just too dumb to hate. Those medieval Scots, so c'est la vie with their public undressing and seducing of teenagers and dismissal of serial murders. Oh well! These things happen! Why look for trouble?
I felt like I should feel sorry for Evelinde, who aside from some good kilt-lovin' has a pretty horrific life. Her dad dies and she's left to be abused by horrible stepmother, who hates her for no reason.
She gets married off to a guy she expects to be cruel. She falls! Out of trees, off horses, into streams, down stairs, in the path of bulls. Evelinde spends the whole book black-and-blue. Poor klutz. Her husband, while actually kindly and good in bed, is emotionally deaf and can't fathom obvious-to-the-village-idiot type ideas like how a person might want a change of clothes when moving to a new home or that maybe you should stick around to introduce your new wife to your family.
But in fact, I only ever felt a slight cringing pity for her during scenes like the one where her new neighbors show up for an unannounced inspection of her right after she gets her gown torn open by a bull her husband was baiting nice, right? I couldn't really feel for her because 1 see paragraph one, and 2 the author continually undermined any emotional pathos with slapstick humor. I never managed to decide whether Sands was meaning to be funny or not, but her characters' constant pratfalls into streams and over fences certainly distracted from any potential emotional engagement.
The only person I genuinely felt sorry for was Maggie, Duncan's dead first wife. She was in love with a man who merely tolerated her and hardly cared when she died. And she died quite young, murdered by someone she trusted.
Her death is merely a plot device; if not for its relationship to other murders no one would even bother to investigate it. But we're not supposed to care about Maggie. Apparently, Duncan's neglectful treatment of his first wife isn't supposed to reflect badly on him. Because he's a man! And men don't get the "feeling" stuff, or converse except with each other, about manly thing like horses and hunting.
Devil of the Highlands
Only men who are Vile Seducers make small talk with women. This wasn't a good mystery, and it shocks me that Sands appears to be a successful romance writer. While I've read more offensive and worse written romances, this really lacked an emotional register. I won't even get into how inauthentic her "medieval Scotland" is or how people didn't wear kilts till the 16th century View all 22 comments.
Jul 29, Meredith Holley rated it it was ok Shelves: Wherein, likewise, the fellas learn that it is their duty to talk — talk, or the people you love will die!! And, as usual, everyone lives happily until the next time their clothes accidentally fall off in public. The accidental-nipple-in-the-mouth part was the best part, no doubt.
My nipples are always wandering off somewhere, forgetting to call when they stay out past curfew. Believe me, I counted myself lucky when they made it through high school without winding up on a milk carton.

I can get behind that. The resolution of the mystery was about as tame as you could possibly have made it. Definitely the most boring option. Everyone basically stays the same, and the hijinks stop after about page That is a linguistically bankrupt moment in literature. The nice thing about the nipple business was that it had a recognition of how silly these sexy books are. Anyway, I basically agree with Ms. Aw, man! And also, ladies, be us not daft, and let us remember our own lesson of contentment: Final note: I know the benefit of the kilt is the easy access, but, still, major disappointment.
Feb 03, Julie jjmachshev rated it it was amazing Shelves: Lynsay Sands is another author on my must-buy list. Evelinde is living under the thumb, and temper, of her horrible stepmother. With her father dead and her brother fighting in the Crusades, there's no one left to protect her.

She's going to get away! Unfortunately for her, her stepmother has betrothed her to the Devil of the Highlands, a man feared and reviled across Scotland.

May 25, Angelc rated it really liked it Shelves: I was in the mood for a fun, lighthearted romance when I picked up this book, and "Devil of the Highlands" delivered! Evelinde's wicked stepmother arranged for her to marry Cullen, the Laird of Donnachaidh because of his bad reputation as a harsh ruler and murderer, wanting to see her suffer in a marriage to such a ruthless man. Evelinde and Cullen have a chance meeting before the ceremony and Evelinde instinctively knows the horrible rumors about him couldn't possibly be true.
They have a genui I was in the mood for a fun, lighthearted romance when I picked up this book, and "Devil of the Highlands" delivered! They have a genuine affection for each other, not to mention chemistry, immediately. Cullen then goes to great lengths to whisk Evelinde away, so she won't have to spend one more second with her evil stepmother. It takes Evelinde time, but soon she understands that even though her husband rarely speaks to her, or anyone, his actions tell of his true fine character and his feelings for her.
Cullen gradually learns to communicate with his new wife, and she learns to accept him, meeting each other halfway. I loved how the characters got to know each other. They weren't separated by a plot device, and they didn't hold back from each other because they were afraid of their feelings. They truly interacted with each other, getting to know the good and the bad, and fell in love! Evelinde was a sweet, talkative lady, who was very accident prone!
However, she was also very intelligent and was usually able to get herself out of the sticky situations even before her husband arrived to help.
I loved Cullen, talk about the strong, silent type! His motto seemed to be 'actions speak louder than words. Yes, the beginning has some silly parts that might not be for everyone, but I really enjoyed the funny scenes and would've liked the silliness and humor to continue for the entire book. However, in the last portion of the book, the romance really took a backseat to the murder that Cullen was accused of as the Devil of Donnachaidh.
Although the mystery was well done and I didn't even see the culprit coming, I wanted more romance! Sadly, Cullen seemed to turn into a background character as Evelinde solved the mystery. I loved the first part of this book, the humor and genuine feelings between the characters was such a relief to read. I was just disappointed in the end because it focused too much on the mystery. I will definitely look for more historical romance by Lynsay Sands in the future.
Reviewed for: View all 12 comments. Lord deliver me from dead exes! I am so tired of reading books where the dead ex becomes a secondary character because they are discussed so much. In this book the death of his first wife was a mystery to be solved so she was discussed a lot.
This book was strange. The beginning started off with almost ridiculous comedy. Frustratingly so. While the scenes were funny, it was just so OTT that I was more exasperated than amused. S Lord deliver me from dead exes! She does not necessarily go do things to purposely put herself in harms way, but she lacks all common sense and is so clumsy it is ridiculous. Maybe in a different mood, I would have been more amused.
Cullen is absolutely one of the most frustrating heroes ever. He barely says two words to her.
He talks to others, but never to Evelinde. He genuinely sees no reason to. He thinks his actions should speak for him. At first I could not figure out if he were 16 or 70, he was so inept at dealing with a woman. And he had been married! I finally deduced that he was 31 so he should have been able to carry on a conversation at this point in his life.
Being so obtuse, he was insensitive, unthinking, uncaring and, in general, a jackass to Evelinde. She tried hard to no avail. At some point a friend told him he needed to speak to her, so, calling it his "duty" to speak to her, he continues to remind himself of his "duty", when before he would not speak. Romantic huh? Somehow they end up working through their issues. I just did not feel it. I cannot understand what she ever saw in him.
Even when he started saying a few words. Safety Gang view spoiler [ When they meet she has just been told she was betrothed. He was there to marry her. But they did not know who they were. They ended up in a compromising position and she allowed him to get to 3rd base I think before saying No. Technically not cheating - but it was a little inappropriate for my taste. His wife is dead for 2 years.
He loved her. More in a brotherly way, but was happy with her. He still has his wife's chest of clothes in his bedroom and because he neglects to give Evelinde anything to wear she has to wear the dead wife's dress.

I mean, okay, the part where he tripped and fell and his mouth accidentally landed on her nipple as a literal plot point was funny, and the fact that her nipple was described as "trembling" was funnier, but then it all just went embarrassment squicky. For the characters, for the author. I still have opinions, though!
Of course I have opinions. Two people, he defined by his nasty reputation, her by. I got nothing here. She was a woman? And they have improbably good sex like a couple of blow-up dolls. Only in the case of this romance novel, the background gestures at context involve an arranged marriage and something something family secrets something. Instead of, say, a cheerleader selling cookies knocking on the door of a lonely middle-aged guy. The point being that these people are so empty, so arbitrarily jerked around a farce of a story.
Which, okay, sure. Jun 12, Emily rated it really liked it Shelves: Evelinde has incurred enough torment under the abusive watch of her step-mother, but her latest act of arranging her marriage to the Devil, Laird of Donnachaidh could seal her fate forever.
Evelinde is not sure what is worse, staying with her step-mother and the cruelty or marrying a man who is legendary for his brutality with rumors surrounding of the underhanded way he took over as Laird of his clan. Cullen, Laird of Donnachaidh has lived his life with integrity, he is a fair man to those that Evelinde has incurred enough torment under the abusive watch of her step-mother, but her latest act of arranging her marriage to the Devil, Laird of Donnachaidh could seal her fate forever.
Cullen, Laird of Donnachaidh has lived his life with integrity, he is a fair man to those that know him, but he has never wasted his time trying to discredit rumors. When he happens upon Evelinde she has no idea who he is, her carefree manner and lack of clothing keep Cullen intrigued. He plans to wed and bed her quickly before heading back to his castle, but after a rocky start he finds a protectiveness that has never happened before for his sweet Evelinde. Enjoyable story, Evelinde is sweet and you see glimpses of a temper.
Cullen is quiet and tries to show Evelinde how he feels through his actions but the two don't seem to connect where that is concerned, for Evelinde expects words and lets her mind ramble worrying about what Cullen thinks, whereas Cullen is dedicated to her heart and soul and doesn't realize she doesn't understand that. Not as sassy as some of the highlander stories I have read, but I think the next couple of books will get better as it goes along. My first by this author so I don't have anything to compare it to.
It was OK, but the writing style seamed very simple. I don't mind that style when the story is humorous, but this wasn't a particularly funny read. Odd and amusing, but not funny. It kind of felt like I was reading a childrens book if not for all of the sex. The hero and heroine were not the brightest people either, both repeatedly making poor decisions with obvious consequences. No author is for everyone, and for me I think she My first by this author so I don't have anything to compare it to.
No author is for everyone, and for me I think she is simply not my cup-of-tea. View all 5 comments. The plot: The year is Guess what?
Cullen a. The Devil of the Highlands isn't really as evil as the rumors about him suggest. Plus, there is a murder mystery. The review: Third, I am actually sitting here wondering how so many people on this website appear to have genuinely enjoyed reading this book. It's okay. Not everyone can write comedy, and those who can't shouldn't. She is daft. Very, very daft. But, for every bad book I have read, I have always found some little truism or bit of prose that I like or agree with, and that kind of redeems the book for me a little bit.
In this book, there was nothing like that unless you count a few unintended laugh out loud moments, and I don't. View all 3 comments. Jun 25, Mou rated it liked it Shelves: I didn't understand why there were so many negative reviews, cause it's not that bad. It was not great, but it was good and I enjoyed it. Lynsay Sands is new for me and I will look forward to more of her works. Overall an Ok read. Feb 17, Zeek rated it really liked it Shelves: When Evelinde discovers her nasty stepmother has spitefully arranged a marriage to the Devil of Donnachaidh, she is at once frightened and resigned to her fate.
But the last laugh is on her stepmother because Cullen is not the brutal man the wild rumors say he is. In fact, quite the opposite- and when the two secretly meet under less than formal circumstances, Evelinde quickly assesses the situation and decides not to let her stepmother in on it. Cullen is no dummy and his instant attraction to E When Evelinde discovers her nasty stepmother has spitefully arranged a marriage to the Devil of Donnachaidh, she is at once frightened and resigned to her fate.
When they arrive at Cullen's castle they know little of each other than an instinct that tells them something is right about the match and the unbridled passion he teaches her every night is something to hold onto. Although she doesn't know if she should trust him, she begins to fall in love with the man of few words she's married to. However, one dark cloud has arisen- Evelinde begins to suspect the body count that surrounds Cullen is not as innocuous as has been purported and she determines she must suss out the culprit Mostly because there was no contrived plot device to keep them apart- they loved each other from the moment they met and they knew it.
But that doesn't mean there was no tension. No, the tension came from their clearly defined personalities and that's what made this novel so refreshing to me. The assassination attempts fit in well with their story and though it could be excised and not be missed, I found the eventual killer to be a surprise- but that's only because I was so wrapped up in Cullen and Evelinde to pay close enough attention to who the murderer was.
I recommend this one for a fun, fast read and a change of pace from the plethora of Scottish historical romances that are out there. Jan 07, Lisarenee rated it really liked it Shelves: This is now my second favorite Sands historical novel. This is the type of book I was expecting after reading her book Love is Blind.
Loved it. About a woman who has just been told by her Cinderella type Stepmother she is betrothed to a man with a reputation for being cruel. Reported to have killed his uncle, father, and previous wife his nickname is the Devil of Donnachaidh. Very fun read. Thoroughly enjoyed it. View 1 comment. Jun 09, Whitney rated it liked it Shelves: This reminded me of a historical Cinderella meets Clue the board game.
She is being set up for a lifetime of unhappiness and heartache- or so her stepmother thinks. A mute, maybe, but not the devil. He saves her from her wicked stepmom and whisks her away to his This reminded me of a historical Cinderella meets Clue the board game. He saves her from her wicked stepmom and whisks her away to his kingdom. A lot of people think that the Duncan is the one to blame. Maybe she was better off with her stepmom… Cullen thought taking a second wife would be just what the kingdom needed.
Now, however, he thinks he has bitten off more than he can chew. Although she talks waaay too much, he is already too fond of her to let anything happen. But who can he trust to protect her? He has been silent for far too long. Somebody is responsible and they are going to pay. I really enjoyed this book — more than I thought I would.
I never have been terribly fond of historical romances. Getting back on topic, Lynsay Sands likes to incorporate humor into her novels, and I love her for it.
The predicaments that Cullen found Evelinde in made me laugh out loud. I think she also did a fantastic job pacing the storyline. And the latter part, the characters begin to figure out who is behind all the tragedies — as well as the reader. I was soooo wrong. I was aggravated that my suspect was not the culprit, but it made the book that much better. So, why am I only rating it three stars? Nothing really blew me away — other than the culprit reveal.
It just means it was a quick, fun read that I probably will never visit again. View 2 comments. Dec 24, Princess J. I found this book by stalking one of my GR's friend page, and she let me invade her book reading time to read this book with me Thanks S. Anyway, when I started reading this book I was expecting one thing but got something even better.
I don't like giving up spoilers and I won't start now but I will say if you're into the Highlands Lords of the manor type book with a strong alpha male that don't use a lot of words but is full of action then this is the book for you I'm quite please with I found this book by stalking one of my GR's friend page, and she let me invade her book reading time to read this book with me I'm quite please with characters and the storyline; which isn't surprising since I love this author and her writing skills Another job well done Lynsay Sands.
Overall rating: How, awesome is that?
I liked this book. It started off with some awesome passion, and then there was some mystery added in, and I was a goner. Cullen really got me from the first meeting.
