Devil of the Highlands
4 Stars

Forced into an arranged marriage with a man known only as "The Devil of the Highlands", Evelinde d'Aumsbery is expecting the worst but soon discovers that marriage may be just what she needs. Cullen Duncan needs a wife to bear his children and follow his orders but realizes that Evelinde is so much more that he could have hoped for.

Light and fluffy, historical cozy mystery set in the Highlands.

Very little world building and virtually no historical background but the characters are engaging and the plot is quite good (once you get past the silly shenanigans in the beginning). The romance is cute and the murder mystery is compelling enough to keep turning the pages.

Cullen is your typical alpha male/sexy highlander who finds the woman of his dreams in the most unexpected of places. He is not that big on words but more than makes up for it with his actions.

Evelinde is a sweet if quite ditsy and clumsy heroine. She has numerous TSTL moments but for some reason they come across as endearing rather than irritating.

The writing is simple and flows making this a quick and effortless read. Recommended for those in need of light fare that is not too taxing on the brain. ( )

A light easy romance. A sexy Scot and his new English wife, taken from her evil step-mother's rule must learn to love each other as well as solve several attempts on her life. Interesting story. I did not like it enough to continue reading her books. I like more world building. ( )

The narrator sounded a little bored at times but she did a great job with the character voices. The story was great, loved the mystery and was surprised by the outcome. ( )

Really liked both main characters and the setting (it's been ages since I read a Highland book). The plot was somewhat predictable but flowed well. The romance was very sweet. Good book. ( )

Book description
He is the most notorious laird of Scotland: fierce, cold, deadly . . . and maybe even worse. Yet Evelinde has just agreed to wed him. Anything, she thinks, is better than her cruel stepmother. Though Evelinde should be wary of the rumors, she can’t help but be drawn to this warrior . . . for the Devil of the Highlands inspires a heat within her that is unlike anything she has ever known.

They may call him whatever they wish, but Cullen, Laird of Donnachaidh, cares only for the future of his clan. He must find a wife, a woman to bear him sons and heed his commands. He has no need for beauty or grace, but one taste of his lovely bride’s sweet lips and the sultry feel of her skin arouse an untamed passion. Perhaps there’s more to marriage than he thought . . .
