Tomboy Saidh fears her cousin Fenella has taken to killing her husbands. While visiting newly widowed Fenella she meets Greer MacDonnell who rises out of a loch all steaming and muscly like Mr Darcy but without the shirt. It just gets better from there as Saidh decides she will frolick with the hot laird before going home to look after her seven brothers.
The laughs come from Saidh's brothers who arrive in a pack and wrestle with each other for the rest of the story. In between the many humorous moments there are assassination attempts on Saidh. Is Fenella on a killing spree or is something else afoot? Unlike recent books by this author 'Highlander Takes a Bride' is more than a 'template' romance. There is a tense mystery and the main characters have entertaining personalities. Good reading.

Overall this was a nice easy read, however I did hate that my introduction to the hero, brawny Laird Greer MacDonnell, occurs when he is getting a blowjob from a maid, what was the point of this – seriously? The scene also felt way too long.
When I read the blurb describing the heroine Saidh, I found myself mentally bouncing with excitement, a sword fighting, swearing, and riding astride heroine sounded ace, and whilst in the book she is no simpering miss – there was a fire I was expecting to emanate of the page when it came to her character, but that fire didn’t manifest as I would have desired. I did like how despite being a virgin, she went for what she desired – Greer. Saidh’s brothers give a light comic flare to the tale once they arrive.
This historical romance has a dash of mystery thrown in, Greer and Saidh find themselves looking for a killer, one that seems to set their gaze on Saidh, once she weds Greer. It was easy to guess who the villain was, and I do wish the author had given the villain a different ending. I also wanted the book to feel more like a historical romance book, than it did, more worldbuilding was needed.
Triggers: Rape/spousal abuse is mentioned, as is the Church’s response to those positioned as sodomites (homosexual as a term did not exist until the 19th century).
The murder mystery was engaging and the villain of the piece unexpected.
If you can suspend your disbelief for a while, this is a fun read!
