Dante Notte has heard it said that love hurts. He just wasn’t expecting it to run him over in an RV. Still, a punctured lung and broken ribs are nothing compared to the full body shock he feels whenever he’s near the vehicle’s driver, Mary Winslow. He needs to keep her safe from their pursuers while he rescues his twin brother. Most challenging of all, he needs to claim this smart, stubborn woman as his life mate.
The naked, injured, insanely gorgeous younger man who clambered into her RV insists they belong together. If Mary wasn’t feeling their incredible connection in every inch of her being, she wouldn’t believe it. But now that the men who took Dante’s twin are after her too, trusting her gut means risking her life for an Immortal who’s the very definition of a perfect stranger.

Sexy, laugh-out-loud funny, and brimming with nonstop adventure, this latest addition to Sands’s “Argeneau Vampire” series is a rollicking good time.

Lissianna has been spending her centuries pining for Mr. Right, not just a quick snack, and Dr. Gregory Hewitt looks like he might be a candidate.

That's a question Lissianna may be willing to sink her teeth into.

Christian Notte's story, the sixteenth book in the Argeneau series is set on an island paradise called St. Lucia. After a bad relationship and an even worse divorce, Carolyn decides to go on a long overdue and much needed vacation with the 'girls'. Only the rest of the vacationers didn't get the memo. Around every corner there seems to be another couple celebrating their honeymoon or anniversary and the few single men she does see are far too young to even consider, including an irresistibly attractive rock violinist she meets. It's really too bad he's so young but in the end it doesn't matter because according to his cousin, Giacinta, women in general aren't Christian's type. But there's a catch, Christian needs Carolyn's help. He needs her to be his beard (to play the part of his fake girlfriend) for the week to appease his 'machismo' family. Carolyn just can't seem to say No and decides to help Gia's cousin. The only problem is that being around Christian and acting like they are a loving couple is wreaking havoc on her emotions. Carolyn's thoughts keep drifting back to places they shouldn't, like kissing his full lips or feeling his broad shoulders under her fingertips... good lord, she's in trouble.

A road trip with the undead . . . Basha’s up for it.

For Basha Argeneau, anything is better than facing her estranged family. Even hiding out in sweltering southern California. But when a sexy Vamp in black shows up determined to bring her back to the clan, she’ll do anything to keep far, far away from the past she can’t outrun.

Marcus Notte isn’t here to play games—especially not with someone as crazy as the infamous blonde. Asked by Lucian Argeneau to bring her back for questioning, Marcus is determined to carry out the request—no matter how the seductive little mind-reading Vamp feels about it.

Basha doesn’t mind fighting fire with fire, especially with a hot immortal involved. But if this Vamp wants to take her away, he’ll have to catch her first . . .

A few hours ago, Sherry Carne would have sworn that vampires didn’t exist. That’s before rogue immortals rampage through her store, leaving bloody chaos (literally) in their wake. The kicker comes when Sherry learns that one of the vamps on the bad guys’ trail may be her life mate. Her head says it’s impossible. The rest of her takes one look at Basileios Argeneau and has much more interesting ideas.

Whatever Basil expected in a life mate, funny, outspoken Sherry isn’t it. But mind-blowing chemistry and instinct don’t lie. They tell him something else, too—that Sherry’s connection to the immortal world goes deeper than she knows. And that she’s in the kind of danger only Basil can save her from—if she’ll just trust him, now and forever . . .

Sands continues her Argeneau series with Basil's story and maintains the levels of suspense, heat and humor she's known for. Basil and Sherry's relationship moves beyond the sexual, and the physical and emotional dangers they have to confront create a strong, endearing bond. Intense sensuality, captivating romance.” —Kirkus Reviews
With her trademark attention to detail, Sands immerses readers in the love lives of the Immortals…Humor and delightful character interactions between both familiar and new faces more than balance a slightly formulaic plot, resulting in a rich, satisfying read for both series veterans and newcomers.” —Publishers Weekly

Avelyn is the pride of her parents—lovely, intelligent, sweet tempered, skilled in all pursuits expected of a great lady in eleventh-century England. Unfortunately, her nasty cousins have taunted her so unceasingly for so many years that she feels ugly, fat, and undesirable. A series of humiliating incidents have also convinced her new husband Paen de Gerville that she is not only frail but accident-prone, and the comical misunderstandings that result lead to more unhappiness for Avelyn. But soon her natural optimism overcomes her feelings of inadequacy, allowing her to take control and succeed as chatelaine of Rumsfeld in spite of the mishaps that continue to plague her.

“Sands has cleverly woven a suspenseful subplot into this medieval coming-of-age romance, and her characters—including two sets of overanxious but loving parents, a clumsy squire-in-training, and a pet piglet—delight, while her trademark humor and vivid settings enthrall the reader.” Booklist

Clarissa Crambray wanted a husband, but maybe not as much as her mother wanted one for her.  Doffing her spectacles might make her prettier, but blind as a bat, she causes enough mayhem to earn a rather horrible nickname and scare away her suitors.  But Clumsby Clarissa just might stumble onto true love with a dark, handsome blur of a man: Adrian Montfort, the Earl of Mowbray, who has shunned society since his return from the Napoleonic Wars disfigured by scars.

How this perfectly matched pair manage to get around her ruthless stepmother, another suitor and a killer is what takes this Regency-set historical to another level of love and laughter, madness and mayhem and into the realm of a sexy, irrepressible and utterly memorable story to cherish.

They call him the Devil. He is the most notorious laird of Scotland: fierce, cold, deadly, and maybe even worse. Yet Evelinde has just agreed to wed him. Anything, she thinks, is better than her cruel stepmother. Though Evelinde should be wary of the rumors, she can't help but be drawn to this warrior.  They may call him whatever they wish, but Cullen, Laird of Donnachaidh, cares only for the future of his clan. He must find a wife, a woman to bear him sons and heed his commands. He has no need for beauty or grace, but one taste of his lovely bride's sweet lips and the sultry feel of her skin arouse an untamed passion. Perhaps there's more to marriage than he thought.

“Sands, in her inimitable humorous style, creates a wonderfully authentic tale replete with intrigue, surprise and, above all, the growth of enduring love between two people of vastly different backgrounds.” RT Book Reviews, Top Pick

This fairy tale courtship did not turn into a happily ever after...Not until her husband dropped dead, that is.  He had been horrible enough to Christiana during their short marriage, and she was not going to allow the traditional period of mourning to ruin her sisters' debuts as well.  So Christiana decides to put him on ice and go on as if nothing's happened.
Until the real earl appears.  Richard Fairgrave had every intention of confronting his villainous twin who robbed him of his name and title...only to discover that he'd died.  Quietly assuming his identity, Richard must now deal with a maddening desire for his ravishing inherited "wife"-certainly a gold digger and possibly a murderess.  And Christiana must deal with an unwanted new "husband"...and they both must figure out what to do before the ice melts!
“…the wittiness, fun, and romance interspersed throughout makes this book one of the best of the year. It’s only February, but I know that already.” The Good, The Bad and The Unread, A+ Review

She never expected to marry…

Annabel was about to take the veil to become a nun when her mother suddenly arrives at the Abbey to take her home…so that she can marry the Scottish laird who is betrothed to her runaway sister! She knows nothing about being a wife, nothing about how to run a household, and definitely nothing about the marriage bed.

He never expected to fall in love . . .

From the moment Ross MacKay sets eyes on Annabel, he is taken with his shy sweet bride…and the fact that she's blessed with lush curves only makes him utter his own prayers of thanks. But when an enemy endangers her life, he'll move the Highlands themselves to save her. For though Annabel's not the bride he planned for, she's the only woman he desires.

"With humor, wit and compassion, Sands spins the touching tale of a lonely outsider who is rescued from the jaws of a bleak future… Watching Ross and his clan fall in love with Annabel is touching, and Ross' prowess at maneuvering the church's "bedding laws" and Annabel's entrenched religious obedience are highly amusing. A sweet, sexy, fun romance, with clever accents of suspense and entertaining dollops of humor." —Kirkus Reviews

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...” RT Magazine
Another delightfully charming historical romance from the talented Lynsay Sands… The writing was flawless. The characters were wonderful and the plot engaging… An English Bride in Scotland was a wonderful book. Sure to appeal to readers who enjoy Highland romance. Sure to appeal to lovers of intrigue.” —Night Owl Reviews

Sword fighting, swearing, and riding astride come naturally to Saidh Buchanan. Simpering and holding her tongue—definitely not. Raised alongside seven boisterous brothers, Saidh has little interest in saddling herself with a husband…until she glimpses the new Laird MacDonnell bathing naked in the loch. Though she’s far from a proper lady, the brawny Highlander makes Saidh feel every inch a woman.

She has an angel’s looks, a warrior’s temper, and seeks out his kisses with wanton eagerness. Little wonder that Greer is intrigued by his comely guest. When reckless desire overtakes them, he’s more than willing to make an honest woman of her. But Saidh is the target of a hidden enemy, and Greer faces the battle of his life…to safeguard the woman he wants above all others.

Sands reaches new heights as she once again ventures into the Highlands, centering her tale on a large and close-knit clan. Readers will adore the siblings’ relationships as well as the carefully paced, well-written, steamy love story between a strong-willed heroine and an alpha hero. Sands delivers what her fans will surely consider a keeper.”  —RT Book Reviews, 4.5 star review

All in all, The Highlander Takes a Bride is a novel that delivers a suspense filled story making the romance that much more powerful. Both Greer and Saidh prove their mettle to each other by overcoming and dealing with the many conflicts, threats and surprises that come their way. There’s a lot of humor and cuteness to soften the harshness of their situation which is a strength in this novel. My favorite part is when Saidh is introduced to physical pleasure by Greer. Her response is delightful and her enthusiasm totally grin-worthy. Watching them fall in love is a ton of fun. The Highlander Takes a Bride gets a huge and happy recommend from me. It’s great entertainment.” —Long and Short Reviews

I enjoyed this historical Scottish romance from Lynsay Sands. It was entertaining and well-written, particularly the Scottish dialect. I absolutely adored the heroine, Saidh (even though I don't know how to pronounce her name). She is not a simpering female in the slightest. Saidh was the perfect match for Greer, the mercenary turned laird. He respected her abilities and didn't try to curb her tomboy behavior. In fact, they encouraged the outrageous behavior in one another. I also really liked the secondary and tertiary characters in this book... namely Saidh's seven brothers and the lady friends we met briefly in the beginning of the story.” Goodreads

A romantic and truly delightful historical romance, The Highlander Takes a Bride was a lovely read. With sweet romance and a surprising betrayal, this book was great and I really liked it. Saidh was a fantastic heroine. She could hold her own for sure, with her fearlessness and her badass fighting ability. Greer was also wonderful. He was very sweet and loved Saidh exactly as she was. Romance lovers, this is a book worth the read!” —Imagine A World

Murine Buchannan has had more than her fair share of fate’s cruel twists wreaking havoc in her life. After losing her betrothed, three out of four of her brothers, her mother and her father within a three-year-span, she was more than ready for a little of lady luck’s help. The final blow came after her guardian gambled away her dowry and tried to leverage her against his debts. Murine had had enough and decided she’d rather take her chances on the road than under his roof. Penniless, alone and terrified of getting caught, she escaped on the back of her pet bull and headed for the only real family she had left… Her friends, Saidh, Joan and Edith.

Although attracted to the blond beauty in the rose colored dress, Dougall couldn’t get away from the nefarious man fast enough. His only regret was what would become of the lady they’d left behind. But he didn’t have to wonder long as he came across a most peculiar scene. It was the lady in question riding away from her brother’s estate…On a bull.
Who knew this damsel in distress, who had a bad habit of fainting at the drop of a hat, and her pet bull would change the course of Dougall’s life forever?
