“You can’t help but fall in love with Lynsay Sands!”
—Christina Dodd

Lynsay Sands knows what romance readers want: love stories that are thrilling, sexy, and fun—whether they concern the amorous affairs of English lords and ladies of the Regency ton, the lairds and lasses of the Scottish Highlands, or the more contemporary vampires of the Argeneau family. In the incomparable Lynsay’s historical romance classic, What She Wants, a Scottish knight finds himself at wit’s end trying to figure out how to win the heart of the fair, if equally hard-headed, lass he is determined to marry. Everyone who enjoys the novels of Julie Garwood and Jill Barnett will be delighted to discover What She Wants…and will be enchanted by Lynsay Sands’s humor, passion, and storytelling magic.

5.0 out of 5 stars To Hugh or not to Hugh, that is the question... 19 Mar 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
After finishing Lady Pirate, I could hardly wait to read this one. And when I started, I simply couldn't put it down.
It all takes place in the begining of the 13th century when Earl Hugh Dulonget of Hillcrest's uncle dies and the will says he must marry a girl called Willa. He goes to see her, but leaves after calling her a peasant. Soon he realizes he must marry her. Refusing to listen to any advice, he sets his mind to making her need him and that way she would forgive him and marry him. It is harder than he thought and if she would reconsider, would they live happily ever after?
The characters in Lynsay's books are strong individuals, both the males and females. But she also makes them very realistic and clever. The females are independant, but still emotional and caring. Although this book is hillarious the characters are never stupid, which makes her novels different from many others! She has her own way of mixing history, romance, humour and realism that works wonderfully and I'm very impressed with the works I've read by her so far! Can't wait to read more!!
I love this book, it's such a great read. Wonderful entertainment if you love romance novels or rarely read them. Filled with humor and strong minded characters makes it a huge hit. I don't know how many times I laughed out loud because of certain scenes or comments, it's a howl!!
I highly recommend this book to everyone. One of the best books I've read actually. Lynsay is a brilliant writer!!

4.0 out of 5 stars A fun, entertaining read 23 Sep 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Hugh Dulonget of Hillcrest has inherited more than land and an earldom - he's also inherited a bride in the form of Willa. On first hearing of his unusual inheritance, Hugh tells Willa he does not want to marry her - because she's not good enough for him! Ironic in a man who has been turned down by others due to his lack of funds. Subsequently he finds out if he doesn't marry Willa, he won't get the money that accompanies the title and land, and thus won't be able to support the Earldom (more irony). Even though even Willa doesn't know who her natural father is - although no illegitimate village lass which is Hugh's initial assumption - Hugh now finds he has to 'crawl on his knees' to his prospective wife, and that's where the fun starts.
Sands really seems to enjoy writing her books, and they are certainly a pleasure to read. Both Willa and Hugh get into some funny, embarrassing and agonising situations in the course of the book, and this is classic Sands. The mystery of the book is to find out who Willa really is, and who would want to kill her, but although this is the action of the piece it is not exactly rocket science to work out.
If you already like Sands writing, buy this book because it is a fine example. If you like medieval tales withough too much contact with court life, light romance with a comic touch and again a very light mystery, you'll enjoy this book. If you like to be able to read a book in a long afternoon whilst sitting in a bay window as raindrops meander lazily down the window, this is a story for you. It won't have you pondering on the deeper message, but it will leave you with a smile on your face.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lynsay's most delightful book yet!!!!!! 8 Sep 2002
By Deborah MacGillivray HALL OF FAME VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Lynsay Sands is proving book after book she is a writer to be watched
with deft, crafts and natural voice, she weaves a medieval tale that
captures the reader from the very start. As she did in The Deed,
The Key and Always, she conjures characters that will live in your
heart long after the book is put down.
Hugh is the new 5th Earl of Hillcrest, the Earldom coming through to
him upon his uncle's death. The only provision he must meet is his
uncles request he marry Willa. Hugh presumed the girl who lives
in the cottage with the local witch, to be the biblow daughter of his
uncle and he is insulted his uncle tried to force such a match.
And, being typically male, he insults Willa by informing
he has no wish to marry the illegitimate daughter of his uncle.
To his horror, he later learn he does not have to marry Willa if
he does not want, and he will still be Earl of Hillcrest - just all
the money goes with Willa. No marriage, no money to run the
vast estate. Hugh has none of his own, since my father lost
their family fortunate a decade earlier, so in order to keep
Hillcrest he must marry Willa.
But then, Hugh is finding that option less repugnant as
time passes, for Willa is a beautiful young woman with a heart
gold. Hugh must quickly earn her hand in marriage in order
to save all. This task is complicated by the preditions of the
witch, who tells Willa if she does not hold out until Hugh
crawls on his belly to her, though they wed, Hugh will be
murdered within a month. She holds out and thinks
all will be well, but the witch warns there are many
evil forces at work that could see either of them dead.

I loved it! After reading an English bride in Scotland, I was reeling slightly disappointed in Lynsay Sands writing but this book made me forget all that. I loved the ending, it really left you feeling warm inside.
