Going after the final and third book of the series the Devil of the Highlands I had to go to another library to find The Hellion and the Highlander. It was frustrating locating as I wanted to find out all about Kade and his journey he had taken in the Crusades, and of course the love interest in the book.
Lady Averill Mortagne is tired of being set up by her father. No Englishman wanted her due to her flame colored hair and birthmark but now there is a man she has interest in and he feels the same way. It confused Averill that her brothers friend who at the moment is injured has interest where no other man has not. Soon Averill is swept away by Kade and taken to his land.
Kade Stewart has been away at the Crusades, captured but he was able to make an escape. For three years he was from home and now he is coming back. But first he was recovering at his friends house and there he sees Averill. He knows she is the one for him and makes it happen. As Kade travels with his new wife Kade is happy to note that life will be good as soon as they find the person who is causing accidents.
I loved Averill’s character. She was soft spoken and considered not attractive in England. Of course in Scotland she was more than pleasing with her red hair. She grew confidence with Kade helping her.
With Kade he was a warrior you couldn’t help but love. Having him attracted to Averill was an obvious choice but I loved that he wanted her after seeing her fiery side.
Sands creates the villain was not known until the very end. All Sands gave were small hints but nothing really concrete.
With all the books Lynsay Sands gives humors but here you will be laughing at how Averill will go about pleasing her husband and all the advice she is given.
As the end of the trilogy I really liked how Sands finished the story. This series was fantastic to read with strong warriors and strong minded woman. Its a series you will want to read curled up on a couch.
