As you know, I love me a good highlander romance and Lynsay Sands delivers her highlander novels with sizzle and wit. They never fail to make me laugh. And I've yet to be disappointed with this series; they've all been really great reading and I look forward to reading more as they are released.

So what was so great about this novel? Well, I always love a story where a hero recuses a damsel in distress. Our heroine has a weak willed, uncaring brother with huge debts who actually tries to sell her to our hero, Dougall, to pay for some horses! So naturally, Murinne decides it is high time she get away from her brother before he succeeds in selling her. She makes her escape on the most unusual of beasts and is runs into Dougall and his brothers along the way, who agree to escort her to their sister's home.

Dougall and Murinne are attracted to one another, and Dougall can't help but feel protective once Murinne starts fainting--a medicial condition of hers he is set on fixing by stuffing her full of food and by guarding her constantly. Which turns out to be a good thing as one too many accidents happen along the road to Murinne. Some of them are funny, but others start to questions and by the time they make it back to the keep, Dougall has made his mind to marry Murinne.

I honestly enjoyed this novel. It was a bit ridiculous in spots, but the kind that simply left you laughing and made this a lighter read, and it was always sweet. I liked that Murinne's sweetness captured the hearts of the brothers and that all of them found her likable because although she does tend to faint a lot, she isn't at all weak and really proves to be very brave during several dangerous scenes. I could easily connect with her because she seemed a bit insecure at times, and made for a heroine that was jolly good fun to read.

My only compliant against this novel is maybe it was too light hearted. While the smexy scenes were pretty steamy, I felt the novel as a whole was nmore humorous than romantic or adventurous. I thoroughly enjoyed it, but I would like to see something a little more meaty in a lot of romance novels, especially in historicals if only because they are my favourite genre.

Great banter in this read, a fabulous hero and heroine, I had a lot of fun reading Falling for the Highlander.

Happy Reading,
