The Highlander’s Promise: Highland Brides (Review Post)

Published June 21, 2018 by bookbesties


In a spellbinding new Highlands story from New York Times bestselling author Lynsay Sands, the laird of the Buchanans finds the one woman who is his equal in passion and courage

Aulay Buchanan has retreated to his clan’s hunting lodge for a few days of relaxation. But the raven-haired beauty he pulls from the ocean puts an end to any chance of rest. Though he christens her Jetta, she knows nothing of her real identity, save that someone is trying to kill her. As she recovers, it will not be easy for Aulay to protect her and keep her honor intact when she mistakenly believes they are man and wife…

Jetta sees beyond Aulay’s scars to the brave, loyal warrior she’s proud to call her own. But as the attempts on her life grow more brazen, Jetta realizes that not all is as she believes. And if Aulay is not her husband, can she trust the desire flaring in his eyes, or his promise to defend her with his life?

This is the second book in this series that I have read.  After the issues I had with the verbal dialogue aspects of the first book, I was very pleasantly surprised to find that those issues had been resolved in this book. I had residual attachment to the Buchanan family from the first book and that made me super excited to read this book and dove right in.  Sadly,as read this book I became extremely let down.  The plot in this book almost mirrored the plot line from the first book exactly.  There were slight differences between them but, the key plot points were all the same, and that left me feeling like this book lacked originality.  That being said I still hold a soft spot in my heart for the Buchanan’s and am eager to read their next book.
