  2. 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 [...]

  3. Is it good or bad when the best you can say about the book is It s ok Some would say it s not a glowing recommendation but when you have read as many bad bodice riper novels as me shudders The Hellion and the Highlander didn t blow my mind or dazzle me with sizzling chemistry but it was a relaxing and sometimes even a bit funny quick read.What to expect Hero who wants a smart wife with spirit, not only good looks Heroine who is confident for medieval ages and takes matters into her own hands Lig [...]

  7. This one wasn t as amzing as the previous two The story is great and so is the character but I wanted to know what Kade will do meeting his sister or what Merry baby sex is Sorry but not having my answers made me hate the book at the end even though I enjoyed it.

  8. Avril is facing what many women today face the constant judgement of others on her looks, only that the suitors that her father has been bringing her around are rejecting her rather harshly All her life she has been teased by not only her hair color red, which back then was a sign of the devil and a temper but also her birthmark on her cheek a strawberry mark about the size of a pea, but it is also the sign of the devil due to those two things she has a habit of stuttering when she is nervous wh [...]

  9. I m glad that I read The Hellion The Highlander I can t believe I missed it or should say forgot about it Because it s been so long it took me a few minutes to remember the series I m happy to say that it did come back to me Thank goodness, it really helped with the story I always enjoy reading historical s by Lynsay Sands, she has the type of characters that I enjoy Her books always contain enough humor and romance to make the story enjoyable Her writing is very easy to get into If you haven t [...]

  10. 3.5 stars 3rd book in this series Main characters are Kade Steward, Lady Averill.Book starts out with Kade awakening from a head injury to a womans voice, that voice belongs to Averill who is telling him tales Averill has orange hair, a stawberry birthmark, and a temper Unable to find a English husband to wed her due to her being labeled devils spawn due to the aformentioned traits However, Kade likes all of that including Averill herself They marry and like the other books in this series things [...]

  11. 3.5 starsSo much to love about this book we finally get to meet Kade Stewart, Merry s eldest brother And there s finally resolution to clan Stewart.But there s a lot of heart breaking scenes in this book, some due to whiskey and jealousy, and some due to plain cruelty and superstition I was horrified at Averill s rejection because of RED hair and a strawberry birthmark And I was put out at her over not telling Kade the whole truth of what his brother Brodie did or tried to do to her.The mystery [...]

  12. Another lovely story by Lindsay Sands I wanted something fun and light and this book delievered I liked this installment much better than book two The character were enjoyable and plot solid I love how characters from previous books get to make appearances Lots of heat, but also cleverness, mystery, and humor I really loved the humor the wedding night advice from the maids and the scenes where the heroine tried to apply them were especially entertaining.The first book in this series is still my [...]

  13. The book is not as the title suggests.I was prepared to read a book where the girl has a temper and does not submit to the guy easily, e.g The De Burgh Bride It was not like that at all She was someone who is supposed to have a terrible temper, but squashed it Her temper was shown only twice through the book1 She kicked a guard in the shin because on her parents orders, she was forbidden to go after her brother2 She cursed a lot while talking about her encounter with one of her suitors and his m [...]

  14. This was a fun light read.Averill Mortagne believes she is ugly because of words that have been said to her by suitors that her father has paraded her by in the hopes that they would marry her At the moment she is tending her brother Will s friend, Kade Stewart who has been injured while escaping a prison where they have been held for 3 years After the last dismal proposal Kade decides that he will marry Averill and take her home to Scotland.Kade has problems back in Scotland as his father and b [...]

  15. The 3rd installment I was looking forward to Kade story.Nice, Simple less accidents than the previous book I liked Averil its true she was not as hilarious as Merry but I did like her our own medicine women.I also liked little Laddie and how protective and sweet he wasd Kade and Will were also liked I have something for stories with wounded men who taking care of by ladies and then he fall for her 3

  16. This story keeps smile on my face from page one till the end Humorus and light with characters that you just simply must love.

  19. This is the second book I ve read by Ms Sands The first An English Bride in Scotland, I enjoyed very much this one I liked even better Ms Sands has a gift for creating stories that have the perfect blend of romance, intrigue, and LOL humor This book had me ROTFL at times, it was that funny The romance between Averill and Kade is also extremely sweet As for the intrigue, that incorporated a well crafted mystery that kept me guessing until the very end Averill and Kade meet, when her brother Will [...]

  20. Favourite one of the series anotherlookbookreviewsspoHellion and the Highlander was my favourite of Lynsay Sand s medieval Highland series There was just something so heartwarming when the talkative Lady Averill nurses the gravely injured Kade back to health.Lady Averill has red hair and in the English medieval times, red hair superstitiously meant that the person had a devil temper Couple that with the strawberry birthmark on Averill s cheek, she was turned down for marriage quite a few times K [...]

  21. My second Lynsay Sands novel It was highly entertaining, well written, funny, GREAT love scenes.I didn t like The Deed as much as this one The novels have stuff in common such as both heros have a secret or surprise at the ending view spoiler The hero from The Deed wasn t drinking the brew the heroine made to make him want to have sex with her but he really did want to be with her and her brew had nothing to do with it In The Hellion and The Highlander We find out in the ending that, The Hero, K [...]

  22. Its about Averill and Kade Kade is Marys brother which Mary was in the previous book Taming the Highland Bride Previous before that one is the Devil of the Highlands.I love these books by Lynsay Sands as they are humours, witty, fun to read and you cant forget the passion.This one was about Averill thinking she wasn t pretty enough to ever find a husband when her brother returns with an unconscious man Having heard all of the mans tales she starts to fall in love with him Liking what she sees of [...]

  23. Finding myself as puzzled as other readers that Averill was given the title of Hellion, she is truthfully yes very clever, very ingenuous but very much in control of her vaunted temper however even when she gets to the point of anger she does not come across as being than normally out of sorts.Kade is portrayed as a hardy Scot, a man whose worry that the lovely English lass is not up to sharing the challenge of his future endeavors when he returns home to Scotland He is soon disabused of that n [...]

  24. I really loved this book I thought it was amazing and I love how in the end, the girl finds that the guy didn t just marry her for the money in her dower I really liked that, but I still have yet to figure out why way back then, English men did not like women with red hair Nowadays, men in general like women for all sorts of reasons, regardless of their hair color One thing that I absolutely thought was hilarious was the guy that the girl met squeezed her boobs and said that they were too small [...]

  25. Reading this made me realize how hard it must be to write a heroine who is both strong, gusty and independent yet a product of her times In this novel, our heroine is beautiful and smart but is made into a self conscious stammerer by stupid superstitions that say anyone with red hair or a mark on their face is in cahoots with the Devil Kids wouldn t play with her when she was growing up, well, no one but her older brother, and now an adult she s being paraded in front of suitor after suitor only [...]

  26. This the third book in Sands Devil of the Highlands series And I thoroughly enjoyed it, liking it so much better than the second I have yet to read the first One of the things I liked about it the most was the story itself, and how Sands kept you guessing until the end who was behind the attempts on Kade I also like Averille s and Kade s characters, and couldn t stop laughing at their misfortunes As with her other series books, I liked revisiting characters from the previous book, and the introd [...]
