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?

I love Lynsay Sands and I love romantic stories that have more than sex, and stories set in Scotland. if you do too, this is for you! It has conflict, romance and family love as well as the couple falling in love.A beautiful romance packed with suspense and comedy alike! The set up and plot for this book was great! I loved that Jona dressed as a boy and even more that Cam fell for it and then fell for her. Campbell is one hunky Scott! This was the perfect romance with the perfect happily ever-after that we all crave. Lynsay Sands is the best at giving us a romance we can't get enough of. With just enough suspense, drama, and comedy along the way to keep you turning pages until you get to the most beautiful of HEAs! She is a master at this and I love it. I don't want to give too much away but, I love the way the book began and let the romance build with the characters. I also really love the characters, as I always do with Sands' book. Characters you love to love and those you love to hate! When I pick up Sands' book I know hat I am getting, a hot and steamy yet beautiful romance, suspense, drama, a hot and sexy man or men ;),a lough out loud comedy, and a beautiful HEA. And Cam and Jo are no different in To Marry a Scottish Laird. You get it all in this amazing book!

This is the second book in her series "An English Bride in Scotland". I gave the first book 3 stars because while I thoroughly enjoyed the light fluffy story line, the romance, and the mystery (despite the fact that Sands seems to be recycling plots like nobody's business), but I didn't like one very gratuitous aspect of the ending. Joan meets Campbell Sinclair when he saves her, and then she saves him in turn, from some bandits. Joan is on a quest to fulfill her deathbed promise to take a scroll to Lady and Laird MacKay, and is dressed like a boy and brutally beaten, so Campbell initially doesn't realize she is female. This is a common trope that I am not typically fond, but here Campbell's confusion only lasts long enough for him to learn to like and respect Joan, and the secret only lasts long enough for a few humorous moments. From then on, it is all heaving uncontrollable lusts, with the one addition that BOTH of the characters think about contraception. (pro-tip, it turns out that wild carrot seeds actually are and were used as a natural form of contraception). However, they get to MacKay and all the secrets come out, so naturally they have to get married, despite the fact that neither of them thinks the other wants to. When they get to Sinclair's awkwardness and hi-jinks ensue until the mystery is finally solved. This is a fun read full of pratfalls and misunderstandings and a bit of mystery. There were two twisty secrets, and I'll be honest, I didn't see either of them coming. I enjoyed both Joan and Campbell and I enjoyed getting to read about past characters. So, altogether I really did enjoy this book, and recommend to anyone who likes reading humorous and even slightly ridiculous historical romance, but it isn't going to be making my re-read shelf so I am giving it 3.5 stars. Also, while this is the second in a series, it should work well as a stand-alone as there is no overarching story arc.

Joan is on a mission to carry out her mother's last wish. She is traveling alone to Scotland to deliver a message to someone. She doesn't know what it is about only that she has to do it. She is attacked and being beaten when a man saves her. After the attack she finds the man is injured and takes care of him. Cam awakes to find what he thinks is a lad has taken care of him. He tells him he will take him to his destination and help him out to return the favor He accidently discovers the lad is a girl. Joan soon finds she is attracted to him and when he makes a move she doesn't resist. When the message she delivers makes everything change they both have to decide if a marriage is what they really want and where to go from there. Joan is tough, rough around the edges and not used to fine things. She is a great healer and knows how to hunt for food. I really liked her as she knows she has faults and it does get her down at times. She doesn't like to force anyone to do what they don't want to do. Cam is great. He protects innocents and is a caring guy. It also helps he is a hot Scotsman! He doesn't know for sure how to show a lot of his feelings but in may ways he shows it through little things. This was a wonderful historical romance. It has a hot love that at times can seem sweet, a few mysteries to figure out, danger and much more. I am a fan of this authors and she didn't disappoint me in this new book at all. Cam is a character who will stick in your mind and make you want more of him. Joan also makes it great as she isn't a character that is weak or one that faints a lot. There is one of those in tis book but I liked her as well. There is also a evil well witch to put it nicely. I hated her and wanted to choke her. Without giving anything away I will say fans of historical romance will love this one and it is a must read!

Lydsay Sands writting is always light hearted and fun and this is no exception. Cam is a delightful switch from the dour brooding warrior typical of Scotish historicals. Joan the very typical healer, woman traveling as a boy, ect. gets to be not only not perfect but an incredible failure at times - so much fun. Watch out for the trouble, the villian is not who you think. This book is the second of a series, but stands alone with no problem.

To Marry a Scottish Laird by Lynsay Sands (Audio Edition) Narrated by Keiran Elliott Series: Highlanders #2 2 stars - 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! ~Paragraphs and Petticoats~

This is the second book in the series and the second book I have read from this author. I enjoy romances where the hero and heroine seem to really like each other as well as eventually falling in love. I don't mind the occasional misunderstanding but hate it when that misunderstanding lasts almost the entire book until the last chapter where suddenly they finally talk and everything is resolved. Needless to say I will continue on with this series and read more by this author.

Not only does Lynsay Sands write great Paranormal Romance, but she also kicks butt with Historical Romance. Loved every single bit of this book, not a dull moment!! This book flows wonderfully, not to fast nor do you feel like you are reading forever. Now I want more!! Cam is AWESOME! The perfect man; understanding, sexy, sweet, smart, oh and a hottie in a plaid- what more can you ask for. Joan, she is just so cute. Loved her, she tried so hard at everything she did. loved that she never gave up, even when things looked so hopeless. Ms Sands had all the perfect characters in this book. This story is filled with love, sex, adventure and suspense. Cause you know, whats a historical romance without a little bit of suspense.

To Marry A Scottish Laird was good, but not exciting. I thought Joan gave of herself a little too quickly as Cam, an honorable man, took her without considering her innocence.
