AN ENGLISH BRIDE IN SCOTLAND
Genre: Historical Romance, Medieval, Scotland
Sands takes a break from her paranormal Argeneau series to charm readers with a classic marriage-of-convenience plot. Maintaining the tenor of the era while building a love story with sensuality and humor is one of Sands’ talents, and one she displays with relish even as the story plays out as a rather traditional medieval romance.
Annabel is ready to take her final vows as a nun when she is pulled from the convent and told she must take her runaway sister’s place as a bride to Scots laird Ross MacKay. Ross finds nothing amiss — after all, one spoiled English bride is as good as another. Sheltered Annabel knows nothing of running a household or satisfying a husband. Her innocence and willingness to please enchants Ross and his clansmen. They find great pleasure and happiness, until her sister’s return from the dead sets everything into a tailspin and unexplained accidents bring new dangers to the couple. (AVON, Jul., 380 pp., $7.99)
