From the NYT bestselling author of "Devil of the Highlands" and "Taming the Highland Bride", here comes another exciting and humorous historical romance as only Lynsay Sands can tell it.

Only one man could set her heart ablaze . . .

Lady Averill Mortagne learned to control her fierce temper as a young girl. But if her father insists on parading her before one more English lord who looks askance at her flame-colored hair, she'll simply scream! Her only respite is the time she spends with Kade Stewart, the wounded Scot her brother brought home from the Crusades. Who could have imagined a Highland warrior would be the only gentleman around?

Lady Averill helped save his life, and for that Kade is truly grateful. She is also almost unbearably beautiful, but he could never subject such a sweet and gentle lady to the rough life of a Stewart laird's bride . . . or could he? When she braves an unexpected danger by his side, Averill will prove to Kade that her heart is as fiery as her hair . . . and that submitting to their scorching passion would be heaven indeed.


The Hellion and the Highlander is book three in the Devil of the Highlands series by Lynsay Sands.

This novel can be read as a stand-a-lone, so you don’t have to read in order.

I had an enjoyable time with this historical romance. It was nice to move out of my comfort genre zone and try something different. It’s a little funny in that every time Averill and Kade tried to have some sexy time, things kept interrupting them, and they couldn’t fulfill what they started. Eventually they get to have their time, but all those interruptions where funny. We do get a little mystery on who is trying to kill of Kade and Averill finally lets her true self come out to the world.

This novel was an ok read. It was relaxing, a bit funny, and a quick read.

Rated: 3 Stars

    • It is funny when they are always getting interrupted. I had fun with that aspect in the story. ^_^

  2. Sometimes its a nice ‘palate cleanser to have a book like this. Short and sweet! They don’t always knock your socks off, but they are enjoyable none the less!
