Action and adventure, emotion turmoil and sexual tension, humor and romance – My Wild Highlander has it all!
If you loved My Fierce Highlander or just drool over Scottish romances in general then I recommend you reading this book. It’s a wonderful addition to the first novel in the series but can be read as a standalone without a problem. Vonda Sinclair has exceptional writing skills, grabbing you right on the first page and plummeting you into the story, not letting you go until the very end. And even then you’re left wanting more! I became so attached to Lachlan’s character that I literally wanted to smack Angelique numerous times for not giving him a chance and always expecting the worst. It drove me crazy how icy she was towards Lachlan no matter how sweet and understanding he was in return. But getting so worked up about a character is a sign of great writing! J Most importantly, Vonda gives readers another beautiful ending that had me smiling when I closed my book…err…reader. Lol I’m looking forward to Dirk’s story next and it can’t come soon enough! Vonda Sinclair is an author to keep your eye, I have a feeling we will be seeing a lot more amazing works from her!
