An English Bride in Scotland answered my need for a historical romance with a rough man in it, if possible a Scotsman. I trust Lyndsay Sands to have a fun storyline and intelligent and surprising characters. I probably expected to much here. ..
The overall story is ok, but not extraordinary. Annabel has been living for the last 8 years in a abbey being prepared to become a nun until one night when her mother comes to pick her up to get married instead of her sister with a Scottish laird.
They fall in love, he takes care of her in a sweet way, helps her accepting that she is the right one for him, there is a lot of sex and danger as both of their lives are threatened by an unknown man.
The last 1/5 is about solving who is threatening them and why.
There is the same structure like in other of Mrs. Sands’ books, but it is not as fun as the others, sadly;
I don’t regret the read, the book is good, but Mrs. Sands could have written a much better story.
Enjoy the read MBTM
