I thoroughly enjoyed reading Lynsay Sands’ An English Bride in Scotland. The heroine, Annabel, saved from taking final vows in order to marry a brawny Scotsman, is as sweet as one would expect an almost nun to be. But she is also funny and enormously appealing. Godly she may be, but that doesn’t stop her from physically or verbally defending herself or those she loves.
Her hero, Ross, was supposed to marry Annabel’s older sister. When said sister, Kate, appears on his doorstep, he is ever so grateful that things worked out the way they did. The same cannot be said for Kate. She is as obnoxious as Annabel is charming.
The supporting cast are equally well drawn. They are believable though they tend to be at one or the other end of the nice-not nice spectrum. Not much gray area here, and that’s okay.
