From New York Times bestselling author of The Husband Hunt, The Heiress, and other beloved historical romances, comes Lynsay Sands’s An English Bride in Scotland, the first book in a new series set in the wilds of the Highlands.
Annabel had planned to become a nun. But when her mother arrives at the Abbey to bring her home to marry a Scottish laird—her runaway sister’s intended husband—her life takes a decidedly different turn.
And though Annabel isn’t the wife he’d planned for, strong, sexy Ross McKay is taken with his shy, sweet bride.
Annabel knows nothing about being a wife, running a castle—or the marriage bed. But her handsome new husband makes her want to learn. When Annabel’s life is threatened, Ross vows to move the highlands itself to save her and preserve the passion that’s only beginning to bloom.

When I first read the premise to this book, I thought it would be something I would really like to read. After reading the samples pages, I was no longer sure that that was the case, since I found it a bit slow and it wasn't really capturing my imagination as a book,so I decided to pass,but then read a review of it, and changed my mind,hoping that I was wrong and it would pick up speed. It didn't. Although Annabel was a true innocent, the passion between her and Ross is there from the start, and although there is no real interaction between Annabel and her people (the laird's clan), she seems to win them over. In the review I read,the author said that there was a twist to the story-line,and although there was a bit of suspense as to the why and who, with a teaser like that, I already had a hunch as to the who before ever reaching the end! Personally, I thought the story moved along at a slow pace,and I didn't really feel any great attachment to the characters and their...
I loved An English Bride in Scotland. Ross and Annabel are a very loving, romantic and sexy, sensual couple. Annabel has been retrieved from the Abby where she is about to take her vows as a Nun. Her mother has come to take her home to marry a Scottish Laird in place of her older sister Kate. I think Annabel's naivety was believable. She was neither shy nor knowledgeable about the marriage bed. She really didn't have a clue, so she did what seem to be the right thing to please her husband Ross and enjoyed it herself.. Annabel has been at the Abby since she was 7 years old so she was a blank slate and was Not damaged from any morals or lack of morals from the world or her environment. She had been at the Abbey for 14 year. A real innocent!! I just loved her. She is intelligent and kind and willing to learn from anyone who would teach her. The servants loved her. Ross was an excellent husband and grew to love her immediately although Ross new that Annabel had been replaced by her older...
I just finished reading this book for the second time. I remembered enjoying it the first time but was plagued with a nagging feeling that something wasn't right. I paid more attention this time around and found the flaws that had bothered me the first time. First of all, the Hero, Ross, is not fleshed out very well. He felt like an interchangeable Hero with no distinguishing characteristics that could really set him apart. I liked the guy, but he was just so flat and boring. Second of all, the Heroine, Annabel, made so many stupid decisions that I just wanted to reach through the book and slap her. Minor spoiler, she decides to sneak out of her home to see a woman about a sewing position after she has been attacked on several occasions. She couldn't send one of her several servants to go in her stead? Then there's the fact that virtually everyone just fell in love with her right off the bat. Perhaps this wouldn't have bothered me so much if it wasn't emphasized all the time...
