Devil of the Highlands by Lynsay Sands

Devil of the Highlands (Devil of the Highlands, #1)Devil of the Highlands by Lynsay Sands
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

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 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.
