Review of The Highlander Takes a Bride by Lynsay Sands

I love everything Lynsay Sands writes.  The heroine Saidh is a young lady who ha grown up with 7 brothers and learned how to survive their pranks, teasing.  She knows how to fight and use a sword and has beat all her brothers at one time or another.  While visiting a cousin she meets the new Laird MacDonnell.  Greer is the new Laird and when he meets Saidh he is fascinated by her.  He has never met a woman with her talents,  usually reserved for men only.  They cannot seem to keep their hands off each other.  This book has witty dialogue, hot sex scenes, and a truly wonderful love story.  Lynsay writes a wonderful plot that moves at a great pace.  Her characters are strong, intelligent and self assured.  I do not give spoilers in my reviews, but there are plenty of surprises and mystery in this novel.  I…

Brides, Cowboys, and Making Authors Nervous

I’m really excited to be promoting my brand new series and the first book THE BRIDE WORE DENIM, but I have to be painfully honest – this is scary, too. The launch of a new series by an author lucky enough to have a few faithful readers (like I am), is no trivial thing. I’ve had very good luck with my first series, set in my home state of Minnesota. I fell in love with all the people in my fictional small town, and I have crushes on all those heroes. Luckily, readers have agreed. Some have even asked for more stories in the series—and I’d love to write them. But last year the time had come, according to my very smart editor, for some new books. A whole new concept. I thought I’d share the journey my new series took from earliest concepts to finished product. I hope this…
