Lady Evina Maclean has heard much about Rory Buchanan’s skill as a healer. What she hasn’t heard is how good the brawny Highlander looks bathing in a waterfall.

Only when she’s rendered Buchanan unconscious and dragged him back to her family’s castle does the truth emerge—it’s not Rory she’s kidnapped but his brother Conran.

Other ladies try to ensnare Conran with flattery. Evina hits him over the head with the hilt of her sword to save her kin—and Conran likes the spirited redhead all the more for it. He’s learned enough from his brother to heal Evina’s father, but there are other dangers swirling around the Maclean clan. And while the beautiful, independent lady has sworn not to marry, this wrong Highlander may be just the right man for her.

Romantic fun at its best.

From one scene to the next, I never knew what words would pour forth from the lips of Evina or Conran. Ms. Sands swept me up into a wide range of emotions, from fear to humor to surprise to lust. She coupled those feelings with action, sleuthing, narrow misses and seductive kisses. The novel kept me entertained, curious, interested and delighted. The author successfully used her uncanny knack of bringing a cadre of extended family on stage to bedevil the hero and charm the heroine. The feeling of family love and the ribbing only family members can get away with were ingenuously woven into scenes making them a perfect fit. At some points I was grinning so much, my cheeks hurt.

I can’t even begin to describe Evina’s reaction to Conran because it constantly changed as she got to know him. I enjoyed her standing up to him, teasing him, besting him and falling in love with him. Her reaction to their first time “together” was both funny and fearsome. Her father was a riot. He most definitely was not a perfect father but when it really, really counted, he connived with the best of them. The results were not exactly as expected, but close enough for him to call it ‘satisfactory’.

Conran’s first encounter with Evina was a memorable one. I liked watching how his character and personality won everyone over. The only problem of course, was that they thought he was his brother, Rory. As expected, the ‘great reveal’, didn’t go over very well. It never does when a hero or heroine waits too long to fess up. The conflict was handled well, stayed around long enough to ruffle some feathers, and then off I went to the next adventure – trying to catch the villain who’s trying to kill Evina. Not only was it a fascinating plot conflict, and gave Conran ample opportunity to play hero, but I totally was in the dark as to whom it could be. When I found out was at the same time as everyone else. It was amazing and quite an emotional rollercoaster.

I’ve glossed over so many parts I wanted to share. It killed me to keep silent but I want readers to get the full effect. Every book that I’ve loved from Ms. Sands always has that sense of family, warts and all, adventures, fun, discoveries and satisfying romance. The Wrong Highlander falls into that category. This is a darling of a book and it’s going on my keeper shelf. Conran and Evina’s love story is a bit unconventional, but the romance is solid and a sure pleaser. The Wrong Highlander was the right book for me. (I couldn’t resist saying that.)
